god damnit blackavar the thread is called General [B]Chat[/B] and Speculation [B]Station[/B], rest is gucci though mods fix also next update is gonna be comp if anything
A post early, I don't think people were chomping at the bit last time we hit the max post limit (didn't it take like 2 hours for somebody to actually make the new thread?), but fresh thread smell is fine either way
[QUOTE=Fluury;53092260]god damnit blackavar the thread is called General [B]Chat[/B] and Speculation [B]Station[/B], rest is gucci though mods fix also next update is gonna be comp if anything[/QUOTE] what's the point of having such a long title? TF2GCSS isn't a good acronym. TF2CS is, though
Make sure to write about the Saxxy Awards.
[QUOTE=Blackavar;53092347]what's the point of having such a long title? TF2GCSS isn't a good acronym. TF2CS is, though[/QUOTE] If you were looking to not have a long title you've done a bad job of it tbh [QUOTE=Fluury;53092260] also next update is gonna be comp if anything[/QUOTE] I certainly hope so, but valve is full of surprises - could be a smaller update that addresses issues from JI

[t]https://i.imgur.com/lem7vuu.jpg[/t] I'm (not) loving this new "Anti Violence Squad" bots that are invading casual. They go sniper and sit in spawn, not moving. They have some kind of anti-idle kick function, but do fuck-all else.

[QUOTE=qubestf2;53092543]I was happy that catbots are gone, now these shits are back.[/QUOTE] is it weird that I've never encountered these bots before? like, I have around 2500 hours of TF2 playtime, and I don't think I've ever been in a server with them.
RED Triumphs! and Mercenary Park are some my favorite soundtracks produced by modern-era TF2.
How do we feel about the rumors concerning Microsoft possibly buying out Valve.... How would it affect TF2?
[QUOTE=Ace of Butts;53092708]How do we feel about the rumors concerning Microsoft possibly buying out Valve.... How would it affect TF2?[/QUOTE] Everyone gets the Top Notch.
[QUOTE=Ace of Butts;53092708]How do we feel about the rumors concerning Microsoft possibly buying out Valve.... How would it affect TF2?[/QUOTE] I can't imagine Microsoft doing [I]anything[/I] good for TF2, but it might fix the faulty corporate structure.
[QUOTE=Ace of Butts;53092708]How do we feel about the rumors concerning Microsoft possibly buying out Valve.... How would it affect TF2?[/QUOTE] I don't think Valve will accept any deal. EA wanted to buy Valve for 1 billion dollars at some point and they didn't accept that either, so why would they accept Microsoft? Besides, they're very comfortable with their current structure and they wouldn't want that changed anyways.
[QUOTE=Ace of Butts;53092708]How do we feel about the rumors concerning Microsoft possibly buying out Valve.... How would it affect TF2?[/QUOTE] Just because Microsoft is interested in buying Valve doesn't mean they can, Valve is a private company and their stock isn't for sale to the public, Gabe and whoever else is a shareholder in Valve would have to agree to sell and I honestly don't see that happening.

I miss CTF Well

[QUOTE=Der dasMann;53092772]I miss CTF Well[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=qubestf2;53092796]Sawmill ;([/QUOTE] I have no idea why Valve just doesn't throw all official maps maps into causal mode (including arena as an alternate game mode, maybe limit it to 8v8 and do best of 5 or something like that). It just makes no sense to me that they don't just throw those maps in the pool and let players decide what they want to play.

The whole reason he wasted all that money on Steam Machines and a custom Linux Distro was because he was super afraid that Microsoft was going to kill PC gaming with Windows 8. I realized he's changed his mind before (Sony and the PS3 being the most notable example), but I can't imagine he'd be fine with a gaming future built on the Universal Windows Application and Windows Store.

I wish I had sources to back it up though. It was quite some time ago and I doubt I could dig it up...

Probably lazy ass people too, since making a bot that runs around maps would require waypoints and actions so they can preform... I guess people have a shit ton of time on their hands with nothing to do lol...
This may be a strange opinion, but I think Brazil is one of the absolute worst maps in the game. Would make sense to pair along with the Brazilian TF2 community. Half the map is a close-quarters favela fucktown and the other half is a boring wide open space with a cliff, massively elevated point, and sightlines so long they can see you coming to the point from the other side of the continent. Plus the entire map just looks uninteresting.
[QUOTE=Ultravod;53092499][B]"Anti Violence Squad"[/B][/QUOTE] I can already see it now, friendly sandwich+mittens heavy bot squad. You kill one of them, they all kill bind and return as a mass jumble of Aimbot heavies. THAT is the day all hell breaks loose.

I hope future war paints use the TF signature paintbrush style more
that should be mroe or less a must tbh. but i guess paints are a wildcard in that regard.
While I don't hate see them. I wish there was a filter on the workshop for TF2 to actually remove warpaints from the lists... They just seem to be all over the place, and I'd actually like to see weapons, hats, cosmetics and stuff as well lol..
