    I wonder if they'll do an MvM match.

    There's only so much we can do, it's unrealistic to cover all the maps, we've picked a handful of maps to play and show off. We'll do our best to make to comment on as many as possible.

    I'm not hiding the map list as such - I just forgot to "announce" it. Maps will be Nebula, Okinawa, Bronco, Dawn's Vigil, Tribute, and Scaffold.

    This is the type of community communication I like to see from a developer.

    I almost feel like last year's TF2 team is 100% different than today's TF2 team, in terms of goals and people.

    Technically, you are right. Valve hired a lot of new people to work on DOTA 2 Reborn and a lot of those people saw interest in working with TF2.

    Not sure about the change up, but people like Eric and Dave have been working on it for a while.

    Eric's been on the team for along time. Almost all of the TF2 updates announced via HLDS had his name in the end for a good 2-2.5 years now. I don't know Dave though. Then we have people like John McDonald (who did OS X stuff) who was a new addition to the team with Gun Mettle, and apparently there's another John on the team who replied to my email regarding the crashes related to prop lightmaps. That's the first time in the 5 years I've been playing that anyone from Valve has replied to an email I sent via the Valve email website thing.

    Again, my hopes for the game are on the rise again, after EotL made that hope completely disappear. Now if they manage to make this game behave memory-wise on OS X I'll be happy. Although I do wish the devs would read these forums more often and stay around longer. That reply by The Jill was a one-off, same with the post made on SPUF about the competitive TF2 group Valve made. I have no idea if my (or anybody else's) replies are being read.

    Jill has been pretty active with us for a few months now - he's joined the chat quite a few times, he's fixed countless bugs we've reported, and I believe he reads the forum fairly regularly. There have been other Valve staff here in the past too.
