remember the days of yore when the pyro was an ambush class
[QUOTE=Robmortar;37162092]remember the days of yore when the pyro was an ambush class[/QUOTE] You mean never? The Pyro's always been a short range class with limited options to get into ambush positions that other classes could have just as easily gotten into. The Detonator, Scorch Shot, and reflection jumps are the only actual ambush tools that the Pyro has, everything else could be done on foot by any other class. The short range forces players to ambush or they do no damage. The Pyro lacks tools that other classes have as a base part of their class such as rocket jumps, sticky jumps, double jumps, invisibility and disguises.

Crouch to reduce his hitbox? He is totally an ambush class
It's only August, but I'm already hyped for the Halloween update because of all this Gray stuff. When are the second Saxxys?
[QUOTE=En Ex;37162323]When are the second Saxxys?[/QUOTE] Eventually.
[QUOTE=En Ex;37162323]It's only August, but I'm already hyped for the Halloween update because of all this Gray stuff. When are the second Saxxys?[/QUOTE] Annual implies every 12 months. So May 2012.
Can we stop and think what was the purpose of updating the site in such a manner that does not reach the masses? The tfteam has to know that only those who are completely dedicated (FPers, /r/tf2'ers, SPUFers, wiki team, etc.) would find this information leaving most of those who are interested in TF2 not even knowing about this recent update to the story (however obvious it may be). Usually when divulging this kind of information, the team updates their blog or adds links in the website spreading the information or keeping the 'hype' on newer developments. When their is a blog post change everyone who ever logs in to play TF2 gets that exposure, instead the new information was spread without any form of update (blog post or TF2 patch). Maybe they did not mean to add this yet? Maybe they are testing out methods of spreading info? [I]shrugs[/I] What do you guys think?

Here's some information about a future update(?) to anyone who looks hard enough type of thing is my guess.
did you really think they would release something without giving us backstory and/or arg.
[QUOTE=testinglol;37162772]did you really think they would release something without giving us backstory and/or arg.[/QUOTE] The question is, do you think they would release backstory without an update behind?
[QUOTE=testinglol;37162772]did you really think they would release something without giving us backstory and/or arg.[/QUOTE] They gave us another piece of virtual paper, that's a valid foreshadowing of what's to come. The update can now be tomorrow.
-snip- never mind, I read the law thingie
[QUOTE=SLBros.;37162795]The question is, do you think they would release backstory without an update behind?[/QUOTE] no they will add stuff for gray. i think he hates red and blu so he is gonna make robots and bam all dead.
[QUOTE=testinglol;37162772]did you really think they would release something without giving us backstory and/or arg.[/QUOTE] Of course they usually give us a backstory/arg before an update, the issue here is they have not done so in such a [I]hidden manner[/I] before. Every time they release information relating to backstories etc. they do so in a way that gets a lot of people's attention. Either a blog post update, a new link added to the main site (that may further lead to hidden links), or information stated in what appears to be an ordinary patch fix. This time they released backstory information before an update in a way that only few (those few who have site updaters for tf2.com) would have the privilege of finding. Their method today for releasing this bit of backstory is strange/unique and almost seems as a not very effective approach for spreading the information.
posted this in the things that annoy you thread as a way to fix the economy slightly. [QUOTE] If I were in charge of the schema.... -all bud would be made untradable. and become linked to some sort of acheivement so everyone could have one. -Bills hat and Max head would drop with the ones before the update being bumped to genuine. - No salvaged crates. EVER. - All promo items have zero date restrictions so the items can be obtained at any time. Genuine quality version have a set obtainibility date. - Increase chance of uncrating unusual hat to 5 - all the halloween acheivement hats become craftable. Keys aren't messed with honestly I feel those are the only nonchanging in price type items...at least I think. No clue about metal. [/QUOTE] how horrid is this idea?

[QUOTE=emmens;37162871]posted this in the things that annoy you thread as a way to fix the economy slightly. how horrid is this idea?[/QUOTE] Only people who spend money on hats could ever find a problem with these.

Although it was much more obivious, it was on the blog and you had to check it to know it. Either way, it's not about who finds it, it's about how fast the word will spread. What bothers me is that they're doing this so early. I mean, we just got a major update (Triad Pack) and one month ago, there was Pyromania. We keep saying it at every little thing, but we may see something Monday.

So it is availible for everyone who checks blog regulary.
Im just glad MvM ARG has started
May I just say that i love how Barnabus Hale signs his name. [img]http://i.imgur.com/AsYz3.png[/img]
I hope Gray looks somewhat like this and appears as one of the bosses. [IMG]http://i46.tinypic.com/2a67e3s.jpg[/IMG]

[QUOTE=royaldanney;37164027]I don't wanna read through 400 posts generated in 10 hours. What has happened?[/QUOTE] Hats started revolution, third world war began, russians teamed up with said hats, miscs are banned from existence and hundreds of millions of people died also yeah, hidden page

They're always subtle and easy to miss if you don't have a diff.
