Not first! Guess not!
Too bad I can't play until sunday, but hope you all have fun shooting robots!
Let's start our pagemonitors, gentleman.
New thread smell.
Yes! A good title from the get-go this time!
That's a better name for the thread,so.What is Valve time zone?
First page master race. Also, good thread title.
Alrighty. I'm guessing that Engie's gonna be a hell of a good time to play as against the machines.
RIP Steam servers 2003-2012
Can't wait for the internet to crash for a few hours.
Fletch seventh'd a request for it to hit before 5 EDT: [quote=Fletcher Dunn]7th. We'll do the best we can and are hoping to not release it too late.[/quote]
[QUOTE=Hellduck;37250818]Yes! A good title from the get-go this time![/QUOTE] what other possible title would have been appropriate for the culmination of 2 years of speculation. To think this all started with the STS leak, a small note about raid mode. Here we are today. Raid mode now MvM, sitting before us, just hours away. The other alternate thread title idea was "Happy 32nd of Valvetobor!"
I can imagine the pain of whoever manages the download servers at Valve.
I doubt we'll already be able to enjoy the mode today, but I hope servers will have stabilized within the week or so.

[QUOTE=wickedplayer494;37250845]Fletch seventh'd a request for it to hit before 5 EDT:[/QUOTE] Whoo, hopefully no more waiting until 9-fucking-PM!
Just got Fallout New Vegas Ultimate edition, but hey, it's not like I will play it for a while after the update hits.
[QUOTE=wickedplayer494;37250845]Fletch seventh'd a request for it to hit before 5 EDT:[/QUOTE] If they want it ready in 5 hours, I'm betting we get it around normal update time. MAYBE 6 if we're lucky.
Let's kick some robot asses!
were finally having a V8 :tinfoil: . i hope one of the MvM map's has water so the neon annihilator isn't useless
[video=youtube;foCzlvXKWTA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foCzlvXKWTA[/video] I couldn't resist
[QUOTE=wickedplayer494;37250845]Fletch seventh'd a request for it to hit before 5 EDT:[/QUOTE] [i]before 5EDT??[/i] Oh wow, that'd be SUPER early.
My booty is ready.
Cmon new explosive demoman weapons. *crosses fingers*
It's time to rev the V8 Speculation Engine! What's next for TF2 after the Machines? Halloween is obvious, do we think we'll see the Mann Brothers' ghosts? That robot is a ghost? And of course Australian Christmas 2: Electric Boogaloo 2: Electric Boogaloo.(3)
So what shall we do whilst we're veighting for this update?
