    It’s almost Smissmas break, everybody! Gifts under the tree. Stockings hung with care. Bodies buried under a tree in the forest after also being hung with care. Or shot. Or stabbed. Or beat to death with a shovel. Really, it’s up to you. The important thing is Miss Pauling’s got some kill-contracts with your name on them. And murder doesn’t go on vacation.


    Introducing the Tough Break Update, featuring 26 new contracts, including weapon-specific contracts and a new weapon-loaning program! This update will also ship with four new weapons collections, obtainable through two new weapons case drops and contract completion rewards, and one new cosmetics case! There are also four new community maps, three new taunts, gameplay balances, and more! Click here to check out the details.

    $6 for a campaign and even uglier reskins. Still no word on any performance related things and weapon balances that leave me scratching my head wondering if Valve has any clue at all what they're doing.

    Is this the smissmas update or will that come next week? If this is it, I'm a little disappointed. New maps are nice, grats guys, but its a little copy-paste.

    Ugh, Landfall. I've come to hate that map for how it doesn't even try to color-code the team bases. That's really only acceptable in Arena and maybe, MAYBE King of the Hill because the only thing that matters there is where the control point is. I didn't bother saying anything about it because it hadn't gotten any attention in like four years and I figured Valve was never going to buy another vanilla CTF map.

    really honored to be in the campaign alongside the other maps.

    For future reference my days of working alone on maps is over, I will only be doing collaborations and team maps. So yeah, people can just message me if they want to join me on my future endeavors.

    Valve confirmed to add unfinished maps :p. On a serious note, this should be an awesome campaign, I've played all of these maps except Landfall and they're all fantastic.

    I'm really excited by the Pyro changes. Hopefully people will start to use other flamethrower besides the Degreaser now.

    Well there's no point in using that weapon.

    There's basically no point in playing Pyro now.

    The Pyro's basically a support class now. I don't know why it was ever an offense class to begin with honestly.

    Biggest complaints here:
    Other than this, I really like the Carbine buff, Degreaser change, Warrior's Spirit new synergizing potential, and medic buffs.

    Other than this, I think the healing airblast is a bit too random, engineer was nerfed too much, and that tree is Landfall is still hella ugly.

    Otherwise, I'm hyped! Warbird and Gentlemanne collections are neat (also: the hidden Lava textured weapons in the Pyroland case!), new contracts are ALWAYS welcome, Snowycoast is official, and all the news taunts are awesome.

    Now I just hope I can put aside some time to play in this update!
