I really want the demo man to get the new item and then Might actually play that class more often.

The numbers are much closer than I thought it would be, but there's no way demoman will win.

This. I play a lot of arena, and having most of the other team only caring about killing the opposite class and not bothering to spy check makes me one happy camper.

In my experience, most pub demos are complete crap on maps w/o chokepoints. KotH_Harvest provides easy demo hunting as soldier. I called it a night after dominating everyone on the opposite team with [DEMOMAN] in their name :p

I don't know about playing spy... With all the nades, stickys, rockets, all over the place, even cloaking won't help you. But if it's a big map then yeah.. But the soldier needs a new weapon more than demo. It can get extremely boring play soldier with no unique weapon but a rocket launcher. The shotgun isn't unique because lots of other classes have it. And the shovel just sucks. Demo on the otherhand has a nice grenade launcher and a sticky... launcher. So I'm happy soldier is winning. I'm fighting for him in the war :D

Yet More Updates!

The first two Demo Weapons revealed - http://www.teamfortr...ndex.htm#item_1
The Comic Continues - http://www.teamfortress.com/war/demo/

For those too lazy to click, the first weapon is a Claymore to replace his Bottle. A killing blow grants decapitation...a decapitation grants you more health and more speed...however, you start out with initially lower health and cannot crit, unless used in conjunction with his next weapon...

Replacing the Sticky Launcher is a Shield. Equipping it provides significant Blast Damange and Fire resistance. Alt-firing allows you to charge forth, moving "faster than a scout can manage". Swinging your claymore during a medium charge grants a mini-crit, and a large-crit to a long charge.

Yeah, It's been updated. Here's a complete rundown of all weapons announced thus far...

---Soldier---

the Direct Hit -
Spoiler

the Equalizer -
Spoiler

the Buff Banner -
Spoiler



---Demoman---

the Eyelander -
Spoiler

the Chargin' Targe -
Spoiler

the Scottish Resistance -

And the kill counter for each is getting dangerously close. What're the odds of a tie and both/neither getting the fourth unlock?

Something very interesting.

One of the soldier achievements:
Spray of Defeat
Use a grenade to gib a player.


Grenades... wuuuuuuuuuuuuut!?
Forth unlock is a grenade?

Grenade probably has something to do with a taunt kill.

The Soldier's bugle should prove extremely useful on A/D maps when BLU needs that extra push. Now combine the bugle buff with a sniper who jarates the cap point before the charge and you have some serious ownage.

Yep the demoman is closing the gap in total kills. Right now I don't really care who wins, as I play both classes equally. I will definitely be using the direct hit RL though ^_^

The new sticky launcher looks to have major potential. Double the number of stickys (16)? Imagine how much of a push an uber'd demo could do with that much boom. Interestingly enough, since it also kills other Demo's stickys, the best counter for a SR Demo push is another SR Demo.

Saw that... i'm hoping it's the extra weapon that the Soldier will inevitable win...

Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Post on the forums from the guy who came up with the pickaxe, he got an email that detailed the taunt kill. It's for the pickaxe and he pulls out a grenade and kills himself. Smallish radius and average tauntkill speed.

Oh snap! I might have to play this again soon. Guys have any server recs? I pretty much only would play dustbowl. But I'm up for anything.

All of SourceOP's servers are great and usually filled with players at all hours.

Yeah I like the sourceop servers, they don't have the fake player count crap. I just wish Valve would just fix that.

I like the medic tweaks. Better seeing who you're healing and the game automatically telling you who needs it will be super helpful.

Crafting Hats is gonna take an insane amount of gameplay (or idling)...3 Weapons = 1 Scrap Metal...3 Scrap = 1 Reclaimed...3 Reclaimed = 1 Refined...3 Refined = 1 Random Hat...

Quite a few glitches out there. I hit a demo milestone and didn't receive a weapon and then in another game everyone got a camera beard when they died as well as a ton of item drops. I hope valve doesn't take away my beard, trumpet, or the boots I randomly got just because they fucked up.

I hardly ever play soldier so I got my ass kicked around. But I like the Direct Hit. Everybody was playing soldier and demo tonight and it felt like UT/Quake 3. Good times.

I think the inventory is a bit on the fritz though. I couldn't equip certain weapons and i couldn't move stuff around.
