The flamethrower is the stock, we can infer this from: -all the meet the team videos up to meet the medic have had nothing but stock used -the flamethrower's silhouette is being discussed so much, valve wouldn't release a weapon without a really obvious and distinct silhouette. -the pyro's stock flamethrower is in the damn hype-up image they posted on their blog, they're lazy enough to leave weapons broken for more than a year so they're lazy enough not to photoshop the stock flamethrower over the image.

Thanks for taking the time to make these gif, gah I can't wait for the next big update AND I'll probably miss the time/night it releases :v: also portal 2 level making tool, pretty cool stuff. Valve pelase give us something better, a blog post, with some images [IMG]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/rainbow.png[/IMG]

[QUOTE=igotopinions;35730814]I don't really see a new flamethrower, or robot, or oil pump or anything new. I took screenshots, but it looks so much more understandable in motion: [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/sG3vb.gif[/IMG][/QUOTE] [IMG]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/information.png[/IMG] MEET THE PYRO WILL CONTAIN FAPPING [IMG]http://www.facepunch.com/fp/ratings/information.png[/IMG]

Didn't valve deleyed update because of major event in other games? I think that the portal 2 DLC can be considered as a major event. So either we'll have to wait at least 2 weeks, or we'll get an update next week, which seems likely as last year's saxxy took place on may 5th. My guess is that meet the pyro will be released next week along with source filmaker, to introduce the 2nd annual saxxy. Maybe even extend it to all source games, not only TF2? Also, meet the pyro won't be about the pre-tf2 flamethrower. Meet the medic was about the ubercharge, not the medigun, and the flamethrower isn't the most important part of the pyro. I'd say his gasmask, or the reason why he always wear one is more important than his primary. Hell, it could even be a post TF2 video, with the end of the fight between red and blu, in a devasted worl. Valve always surprise us.
HLDS email. [Quote] We're working on a mandatory update for TF2. We should have it ready soon. -Eric[/quote]
[QUOTE=Devozade;35732145]HLDS email.[/QUOTE] Even now there is hope for Valve. (jk it's probably nothing protomen references)
[QUOTE=Devozade;35732145]HLDS email.[/QUOTE] I am also hyperventilating.
Makes me think it was meant for yesterday and just wasn't ready and it's coming out early to leave time for fixing anything big that might break.
be still my heart [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] you know... Deus Ex update was this early in the afternoon
Holy crap, update today confirmed? Underwear hull integrity compromised...
[QUOTE=ned_ballad;35732214]be still my heart [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] you know... Deus Ex update was this early in the afternoon[/QUOTE] It's always the updates that are odd like that I'm never around for.
[QUOTE=ned_ballad;35732214]be still my heart [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] you know... Deus Ex update was this early in the afternoon[/QUOTE] Thought it was in the late afternoon, since I saw them test it in the mid-afternoon, and a little after I left, they released it.
it was about 3est I think iirc you saw it being tested the day before, maybe not? [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] oh no, just checked some older threads, you're right, you visited them and a few hours later the update hit looks like closer to 5est, rather than the 2 or 3 I thought.
I think they will add grocket material tonight. That's my only guess.
I hope they turn on the Moonman Backpack and Challenge's paint, like I emailed them about
It's not gonna be Tobor, but whatever, UPDAET /o/!
Some sort of community item fix, haven't had one of those in a while.
[QUOTE=Psychopath12;35729805]If there's going to be a new alt-fire, it [i]needs[/i] to be as useful of a utility as airblast. If not, it will be doomed to mediocrity like the former-Backburner and current Phlogistinator.[/QUOTE] A flamethrower that shoots oil instead of airblast. Calling it!
They could make the Nanobalaclava and Private Eye all-class so that I'd be about 3 times richer than I am now :v:
being able to charge airblast is an already coded attribute I think could work nicely (with some tweaking so you don't send enemies to the Skybox like it is right now) [QUOTE=Kapellmeister;35732390]They could make the Nanobalaclava all-class[/QUOTE] but then how will I get random traders as steam friends asking me about it!
[QUOTE=NapyDaWise;35732086] Also, meet the pyro won't be about the pre-tf2 flamethrower.

Did anyone want the medigun explained? Not necessarily. [/QUOTE] In the same way, no-one wants the pyro mystery to be told
TONIGHT IS THE FUCKING NIGHT.
[QUOTE=Rageguy;35732431]TONIGHT IS THE FUCKING NIGHT.[/QUOTE] Well, it is getting dark in here.
added a towel and some bug fixed, move along
Well, that update was nothing. [url]http://tf2.com/post.php?id=7852[/url]
Well, at least I made this.. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43795887/pyrojesus.png[/img] Looks like we wont need it.
