[QUOTE=Clovernoodle;34559314]Lincoln was shot on the 14th, but died on the 15h. I can't read it well in the comic, but if it reads 14th... oooh maaaan[/QUOTE] I think it says April 14th, which would make sense if he got the Life extender before he died on the 15th. Mios dios
nobody noticed that the date of the third machine was the day before Lincoln died until just now? ...
[QUOTE=ned_ballad;34559456]nobody noticed that the date of the third machine was the day before Lincoln died until just now? ...[/QUOTE] No, people noticed beforehand, it's just that now all the Pyro conspiracy theories are starting up again, and since Lincoln is the original Pyro, that is relevant.
oh, because it's the first time I noticed
oh yeah and as a side note we'll probably be seeing a Super Monday Night Combat promo later this year [url]https://twitter.com/#!/Ekanaut/status/163107740502327297[/url] I hope they add weapons and hats to TF2 this time instead of good costumes in MNC and bad hats in TF2 like last time What if the Engineer and Medic got Support's Hair + Goggles
So the pyro is some twisted cyborg Abe Lincoln according to you guys? I'm okay with that.
What if Support's Heal Gun for Engineer, that doesn't heal his Teammates but heals his buildings (and steals health from enemies) Or Combat Girl's Heal gun for Medic that can heal multiple targets Or Karl's Sticky Bomb Launcher for Demo that stop moving when they hit a player, and bounce on the ground for a second before exploding. THE POSSIBILITIES MAN
I'd imagine one of Gunslinger's weapons is likely to appear (A revolver or a sniper rifle). Perhaps even Veteran's stool for Heavy using Saxxy animations.
Theory: Since they promised that source filmmaker would be released after all the meet the team videos are done, they will release meet the pyro before the saxxy's and release source filmmaker when the saxxy's start, and you will be able to submit videos made with it

Perhaps even Veteran's stool for Heavy using Saxxy animations.[/QUOTE] I was thinking the Gunner's dual minigun with a LETS DO THIS TIKI STYLE taunt, and Veteran's Shoulder Pads as a misc. Although grappling people as the Heavy would be great.
[QUOTE=Clovernoodle;34552779]Suddenly a hole in my theory. Lincoln was 6'4" Pyro is not Go home everyone, I'm a false prophet [editline]OH SHIT[/editline] Unless... [I]UNLESS...[/I] The whole idea is that a [I]bunch[/I] of Lincoln robots were created because someone KNEW that Lincoln was going to be assassinated (as evidenced by the Engineer Update page of the revolving seat in Booth's Theatre), and they were sent to pose as the president while the real one was given the third not-dyin' machine, and one of these Robots became the 1850s mercenary, after being rejected as too short, which crushed his little robotic emotions and sent him on a pyrotechnic rampage. [I][B]This conspiracy ain't dead yet folks[/B][/I][/QUOTE] they made him shorter so that the bullet will miss his head this time

Guys, I don't know if this has been stated, but I've been saying this for months before the "Tobor" thing. They provided a canon excuse for the replay feature being added (something about secret cameras filming them) so maybe they are just going to give a canon excuse for the existence of the bot feature. Perhaps that would explain why there are two of each person, one for each team. They could even make a reference to how in the censored version clocks and gears and springs (amongst other shit) fly out of you.
does anyone know what the damageplayer hud event it?
Or maybe, the Pyro is руссиан !
Pyro is Pyro.
[QUOTE=themooselord;34561585]does anyone know what the damageplayer hud event it?[/QUOTE] It seems most people are ignoring this.
It's nothing interesting. It's to help custom HUD makers.
I don't even know why they put it in. There already was two ways of notifying when damage was done: Hit sounds and damage numbers, that can be placed everywhere on the HUD.
[QUOTE=royaldanney;34562538]I don't even know why they put it in. There already was two ways of notifying when damage was done: Hit sounds and damage numbers, that can be placed everywhere on the HUD.[/QUOTE] it's not to help show if you damaged a player but if your being damaged apparently, it's being added so deaf members of the TF2 community have a better indication of such, which is great
It's being used to create animations when you hit a player, the main one being HUD crosshairs changing colour when you damage someone else.
Blue team is kept alive by that wierd life machine, starting with Blutarch and running down to the classes like a pyramid. Red team is ro-boT(s). Kept alive by electricity. [B][I][U]YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST[/U][/I][/B]. (I HOPE.) -EDIT- [IMG]http://imgur.com/w49gy.png[/IMG] VVV Yeah, but the RED team is usually depicted as the winners. Thus robots.

[QUOTE=ironman17;34523852]Oh my. What does it mean?[/QUOTE] Update got delayed :v:
[QUOTE=Damoman;34524785][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk36o9sG224[/media] Made this just for you! Nothing about the Tobor room changed, it just seems to be the numbers.[/QUOTE] Now if we only knew what AUAX is

So I had an odd dream last night. It was really detailed, I woke up, sat down at my computer and went on TF2.com like I usually do to check if there was any news while I was sleeping. Well low and behold, there's a banner "The Arson Update: Day 1!" and the banner said "Featuring Doe's Dumpster Devices set and new decals!" Basically day one went through Soldier's dumpster set, everything was in except the horn, which was replaced with the shotgun instead. They didn't have stats though, just names, and I don't remember any of the names but they were different than the ones submitted. Under these new Soldier weapons was a bunch of images of old items with decals on them. The Buff Banner had a new style with stickers on it, the Football helmet had a decal on it now, and there were a handful of new decalable items, including that skateboard from the workshop. I remember the whole thing looks really ugly. They used a terrible brownish orange as the background color, and everything had a very 1960s office theme. The posters for the decal stuff was on a corkboard for example. Then I woke up, excited to play with the update. Then I realized it was the Dumpster pack, so it must have all been a dream. Then I went back to sleep.
