[QUOTE=ned_ballad;34573767]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.[/QUOTE] I had a similar dream last week. Except there was no skateboard, the shotgun and battle banner were merged into one item, and it boasted "FIXED THE LOCH-N-LOAD" in bold letters which was a dead giveaway that it was just a dream :v:

Now I've got the mental image of the worm from ned's avatar hunched over a crystal ball saying things like "I forsee... (eyes roll back in head) SOLDIER ITEMS. DECAL-ABLE SOLIDER ITEMS." Really wish I could draw. Only like five people are going to get this joke and the rest of the people will rate me dumb. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Xe9hl.png[/img] It's funny to me. ;_;
I kind of want stickers on my buff banner now
Decalable Killer Exclusive would be amazing (the little paper part).
[QUOTE=ned_ballad;34573813]Now I want to go to bed and see Day 2 By the end of the week I will have seen what bizarre creation Meet the Pyro is in my head[/QUOTE] I've always loved the idea of Meet the Pyro being less of an interview or story starring him and more like a late 60s early 70s music video. Like the Pyro lives inside of and sees everything as that once scene in the Beavis and Butthead movie where Beavis trips on Peyote. Four minutes of the Pyro running around killing people with special effects flying off, psychedelic colors, and big-titted demon girls giving him thumbs ups. It could flash back and forth between a "normal" view of what the Pyro is doing and what the Pyro sees himself doing.

Then I went back to sleep.[/QUOTE] I dreamt of it saying in big bold letters "MEET THE PYRO! AND The Second Saxxy Awards!" followed by "SOURCE FILM MAKER! Make videos even BETTER!" I clicked play on the meet the video, and saw it on a western styled map. It pans up to reveal what is apparantly a RED base. Inside, they're looking at a table and debating about something. What you can make out is things like "TOBOR" and "Raid". Just then, an alarm goes off, and the team rushes out to see Pyro rushing back to base, followed by a small army of robotic classes, each one saying catchphrases in mechanical tones. Suddenly, Pyro turns around and taunts to the music, rallying the team, before setting ablaze everything in his path. As the others are shown fighting robotic counterparts of themselves. As this goes on, Pyro starts lighting up the entire base, causing everyone to evacuate. It ends with Pyro standing over the base in the distance, watching the inferno. It cuts to black. "Introducing: [B]RAID MODE[/B]". Then i woke up. Bloody dreams.
I wouldn't be surprised if whatever the new "thing" is will still be called Raid Mode.
[QUOTE=Jetamo;34575169]I wouldn't be surprised if whatever the new "thing" is will still be called Raid Mode.[/QUOTE] I thought Raid Mode was, like, cancelled?
[QUOTE=Lenzikus;34575788]I thought Raid Mode was, like, cancelled?[/QUOTE] The idea behind the original raid mode is, not the name itself. No one needs to know the idea it was to begin with, only what it is when (if) it's released under that name, whatever it is.

So they'll probably release something completely unrelated and call it Raid Mode. I think they'll give it a completely genuine name.
[QUOTE=Lenzikus;34575832]I see. So they'll probably release something completely unrelated and call it Raid Mode. I think they'll give it a completely genuine name.[/QUOTE] a kid has played the "raid mode" if i recall. so perhaps it's still the same name

[QUOTE=ned_ballad;34493040] - Make a wish kid gets community spine chilling skull and says he played raid mode [/QUOTE] Any source or more info on this? I just read it and found it very intiguing. Also, no idea Valve was a "Make a Wish" Foundation partner :P
[QUOTE=Danzflor;34576647]Any source or more info on this? I just read it and found it very intiguing. Also, no idea Valve was a "Make a Wish" Foundation partner :P[/QUOTE] The only real proof we have, is that the kid is quite stupid so there is no way he could of had found out about Raid mode from the Internet so the chances he made it up are small.
some block forum he posted about it, then his buddy got a FP account and confirmed it, plus the kid posted his story on Reddit. I can't find any of these things off hand though, they're too buried to the sands of time, but they do exist. [editline]6th February 2012[/editline] nvm, found it [url]http://www.sourceop.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=92053&start=0[/url] it's all there

Surprisingly, searching for tf2+roblox+raid+cancer actually gets what you want
So we will be fighting against raiding cancers?! Oh my gooooooooooooooooooooood.
That guy who had cancer and got some special weapon from Valve after he visited them and then tried to sell that weapon and as soon as Valve found out they made it untradable? I know that guy. Well, his story. And I've seen his backpack once. Is this the one you're speaking of?
