    Welcome to your DOOM... AARON A. AARONSON!

    Yes, we're talking directly to YOU, Aaron A. Aaronson! This prophecy of your death is coming from INSIDE YOUR OWN COMPUTER! AWOOOOOO!

    Hello, everyone else! What you just experienced was a brave new frontier in Halloween scaring technology: personalized terror! Rather than generically scaring all of you a little, from this Halloween forward, we’re going to scare one specific person... TO DEATH! Admittedly, much like the Human Genome Project, this is going to take some time. So everybody be patient - you'll all be scared eventually. Also, if any of you know Aaron B. Aaronson and don't want to deprive him of the thrill of dying of terror next year, don’t tell him about this blog post.

    But just because we’re all now living in the amazing far future of scaring, being frightened in ways that until moments ago seemed impossible, that doesn’t mean we don’t have some more traditional Halloween horror planned for you. First of all, we’re happy and scared to announce the Fourth Annual Scream Fortress Halloween update, dedicated to the loving memory to Aaron A. Aaronson. It doesn’t ship until tomorrow, but you can read all the eerie details here.

    Secondly, we’re pleased to present the first in our new series of Halloween-themed release notes. It’s a terrifying little tidbit of fearful fact reporting we call “John Carpenter’s Changes to the Functionality of Halloween Gifts”! Last year, gifts spawned publicly and could be claimed by whoever got there first. This year, players will receive private gift spawns that they can grab at their leisure without having to race everyone on the server for them. The end. Directed and programmed by John Carpenter.

    From the update page, that 666th wave looks like CoalTown at night ... (2spooky ghosts anyone ?)

    So rtd, then? I can dig that, i guess. Sawmill would actually work as a event map, i think: the aesthetics could be easily creepified, and theres enough space to make the bad guy powerful without the last year's problem of running into them every ten seconds.

    The wave 666 also sounds cool.

    Also, more importantly, Aaron B Aaronson is not the next person after Aaron A Aaronson, have they never heard of Aaron A Aaronsop

    My thoughts exactly. Plus you'll never have the problem of him clipping through the top of doorways. That always through me off.

    They are clearly going in alphabetical order, and that sorts on the last name first.

    Hoping they at least retheme it so it's as different as Mtn Lab/Manor are... maybe into Merasmus' haunted castle.

    koth_disneyworld, anyone

    Could be worse, could've been Hoodoo_event.

    ...Granted, this is where I would point out where a ghost pushing the cart would totally be thematically appropriate.

    I'm interested by the fact that there is an engineer zombie visible. Perhaps that means that this new mvm mission will introduce functional engi-bots?

    My guess is that he's going to be melee only ... and not even melee but bare hands so I don't think you are going to be able to have engi-bots with actual weps : there is no engi-bot model also =/

    A bot sentry would be pretty annoying to everyobe imo

    There's code in the Beta currently that suggest Engie bots can teleport into the map and take over friendly sentries. I'd guess they're like a spy/buster combined.
