[b]Welcome to the most exciting week in TF2 we've had in years![/b] In a pre-emptive strike against the 10,000 post limit (and because I need sleep eventually), here's a new OP! Keep up to date on the ARG here: [url]http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/ARG[/url] Tuesday: Valve adds 7 mysterious items that randomly drop and serve no purpose! Wednesday: Valve adds a special attribute to the Eliminate the Impossible (Medic Sherlock Holmes) set that causes the descriptions of the previous day to change into a quote from "The Adventure of the Copper Beeches" a Sherlock Holmes story. Thursday: Valve adds an error code when crafting two banana peels. Each code shows a specific error, which, when pieced together, is assumed to form 4 QR codes that lead to images The images together formed this: [url]http://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/thumb/6/68/Saxton_Hale_Hearing_Transcript.jpg/800px-Saxton_Hale_Hearing_Transcript.jpg[/url] It's the transcript from the Poopy Joe congressional hearing. Friday: Pyro wrote a blog post! If you convert the pyro gibberish into Morse code, it spells "MONDAY" or, if you include the title "A MONDAY" but let's forget the latter and assume monday night is the night!

After six months of nothing, Valve certainly knows how to spark interest and curiosity into the game, goddamn.

After all these years, we're within days of finally seeing Meet the pyro.
My bananas is ready.

[URL="http://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=8045"]Blog post during the changeover[/URL]
New flare gun so basically MtP confirmed for soon.
posting since I was late to the switch [QUOTE=johnlmonkey;36434822][url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Thomas_(announcer)[/url][/QUOTE] He's from or in Florida... [img]http://i.imgur.com/mY05v.png[/img] [url]http://www.teamfortress.com/war/saxtonhale/poopyjoe.htm[/url]
[QUOTE=psyke;36434938]a new flaregun. woopf[/QUOTE] im betting its going to be some kind of flare that splits into 3 other lesser damage flares after a certain amount of time in the air. At least, i want that to be a flare gun's stats.

Neat item.
The way the gun looks leads me to believe that it's related to the jumper weapons... finally a flare gun jumper. Just what we've all been waiting for.
The new blog post makes me believe the update may not be coming as recently as we thought... "an upcoming update" makes me think that we won't get an update this week...
Congrats Jalcober, I new as soon as that item was submitted it would be accepted

We created a new particle system and began playtesting it in-game. the gun has new particles!!! :D
Maybe you can stick them in a medigun beam.

Maybe it'll do a cone-like spray of fire, like a fire shotgun. That could be pretty fun
