I hope to god I can make it until Thursday, because my heart is racing and I already have anxiety problems GALORE, luuul.

Alright guys, here we go.

I actually don't care for new items that are not for Medic because well, the new stuff is dull and not that important to test out. I prefer dull over gamebreaking or really annoying, though.

"Jesus, am I the only one lookin at this and thinkin so far its a massive let down?"

Yeah, pretty much. Not saying your opinion is invalid or anything, but are honestly saying you can't see the huge amount of work Valve put into redesigning the website and giving us concept art and putting all the comics and other bonus things in neat, organized, easily accessible sections?

Triflin'. To be honest, I think there's just no way Valve could live up to your expectations or the hype the fandom was piling on in anticipation of the update as a whole. I was mega-hyped, too, but I'm looking at this, and I'm thinking, "Yeah. So far, this is everything I'd every wanted, AND THEN SOME."

Hah hah, simmer down, sassafras, this is only the first day of a whole week of updates. If you don't like the new weapons there's nothing saying you have to use them! I don't like any of the weapons from the Shogun update, so I just don't use them. Easy peasy Japanesey.

We knew this was coming, but I'm excited because I'm always excited about updates, and also this will be the first Meet The video in over a year and a half! So let's take off our pouty pants and put on a smile and soldier on through the pain.

Life is indeed wonderful. Three more days of goodies and my two most played classes get a windfall on the first day...

Tomislav sounds like rapine; going to be a hell of a lot of dead Pyros on release day. Neither of the other two Heavy weapons sound much good, but I'm told the set bonus for using them all will be increased movement speed, which will at least make them viable.

Both of the new Spy weapons look unbelievably tasty. They seem custom made for the DR, which suits me just fine.

I really, really hope the rose comes with the ability to cast it onto an opponent's corpse.

This update, in a nutshell.
>> No. 6009
My opinion on the update so far:
The new weapon's stats are extremely uncreative, but I'd rather have that than some new and gamechanging (and possibly gamebreaking) mechanic. With very few exceptions (such as medic secondary or engie primary) every class has so many different weapons to choose from for every slot that further complexity would damage the game rather than improving it.
That said, let's move on to the weapons themselves:
Tomislav could allow for some nasty stealth Heavy tactics with its fast, silent spinup, but stands no chance against already spun up Heavies with other Miniguns. I'm kinda tempted to check it out.
The Family Business won't see much use, since most players use the Sandvich anyway.
The Eviction Notice looks pretty badass, but outside medieval mode it's pretty worthless compared to GRU and FoS. But admittedly not quite as worthless as the Warrior Spirit.
The Enforcer is probably good for Dead Ringer Spies who haven't mastered the Ambassador yet.
The Big Earner looks like a mild version of the Kunai to me - less reward, but also less risk. Seems balanced to me.
The new site design is cool too. Needless to say, I'm also looking forward to Meet the Medic.

Haha, not my fault he often says what I think.

Yeah, my opinion on the weapons is pretty much the same. I'm a person of habit and as long as the new stuff isn't actually filling in some holes, I don't have much interest for it. I'm happy with my Heavy loadout and I never play Spy except for derpage, so ... yeah.

I'll keep my thrills for the REALLY interesting stuff. Seriously, guys, you posted so much stuff already about a bunch of weapons that someone else made? Come on, admit it, it's not about the weapons, it's about the REALLY REALLY good stuff that's about to come and oh yeah, I can't wait for that either. As said, I'll be shrugging here, keeping my popcorn bags closed until they announce the jewels.

See Valve, this is the kind of attitude you breed by lavishing this game with free stuff for four years. Remember when the Blutsauger and Ubersaw were first released? Were they interesting gameplay-wise? Not even slightly, but people went absolutely mental for Medic at the time. These days they can redesign their entire website, release previously unseen concept art and announce a new map, 5 new weapons and 3 new cosmetic items just on the first day and people will roll their eyes and go "C'mon Valve, are you even trying? Your handjob is a disgrace, put some effort into it for Chrissake."
>> No. 6016
Anybody excited and/or worried about how they claim this is going to be the biggest update ever? Mann-conomy added 5 weapon sets, dozens of hats, introduced usable tools and turned the game into a blood orgy of micro-transactions. What exactly do they have in mind that'd change TF2 more than that?

Sigh. I agreed with Chi, as mentioned, and the new site update is awesome and I adore the concept art, believe me. Just because I don't fangirl about this update so far doesn't mean I didn't like it, hm? New maps are awesome, concept art is awesome, I JUST said that the really good stuff is still about to come and that I won't flip my shit like some people here before that is up.

Is the new map out yet? No.
Are the announced Medic items out yet? No.
Is Meet the Medic out yet? No.

So please hold your breath before you call me unthankful. I simply don't praise the entire update before the creme de la creme is avaible yet.

Thank you, Valve.

The only thing that could make this week better for me would be Pyro items.
>> No. 6042
Too bad I'm such a lousy sniper. I can't headshot anything moving (and half the things standing still). It'll be hell if I play with my Steam friend Phaeth on the other team.

I doubt they put that much thought into it.

>> No. 6044
>>6042
It's possible, but there are plenty of explosive or, hell, corrosive, things that can be used, I'm sure.

What about proximity mines? standard frag grenades with shrapnel? Land mines? I'd personally like to see them do Nitro or Napalm. Napalm would be fucking sweet.

Well, Heavy can do healing now, and Demo can heal himself. Spy can do headshots. Pyro can help engineers.

Maybe they don't give him so much exploding things because they're afraid he'll get seriously OP in the hands of a pro player and that'd make everyone else rage.

They don't add more explosive weapons because they a) are very difficult to balance, and b) explosive spam is obnoxious. So they try and come up with precision explosive weapons like the DH and LnL which reward careful aim; few people use them because spam is too advantageous to give up and people still complain about them because they are cheap against 125 classes.

You don't want the Demoman to have more explosive weapons; you want this new set to be successful and have lots of Demomen charging around in slippers. Trust me on this.
