I'm really liking the direct hit, especially when combined with the gunboats. It's pretty much allowing me to train rocket jumping.

The random system was insane last night.

I got SR, Eyelander, camera beard and a ton of other items over the course of 4 hours before it finally leveled out.

I got the SR, Banner, and Direct Hit before it calmed down. It also looked like I was getting a dozen backburners (I'd get the message every time I died), but I don't have a bunch of backburners in my inventory, so I guess that part wasn't real.

Man, SO MUCH spam last night. And the demos with shields are hella scary.
My games, DVDs, and feedback.

I smelted two decent hats and got one shitty hat. :bomb:

I knew I shouldn't have taken the risk. :bomb:

I must have started playing last night after all the drops settled down as I played for 3 hours and did not get anything.

Play a medic.

Exclude healing Demomen or Soldiers (pick one)

Claim its for the war.

Have people yell at you saying its over.

THE WAR IS NEVER OVER

Get kicked, find a new server.

Find items for crafting while doing this.

AWWWW YEAAAAAAA

Blah, I can't wait until the solly and demo craze dies down. The game is totally unplayable for me right now; spam is just off the charts.

I really like unlocks like the Kritz and Buff Banner that promote teamwork. Stuff like the Sandman, Eyelander, Equalizer, etc. I find completely retarded and contrary to the spirit of the original TF2. The updates are neutral, then, because Valve saves themselves from ruining their own masterpiece thanks to a few decent unlocks but most importantly new maps and Saxton Hale comics.

Ha, I actually almost enjoyed the spam on release night. I usually despise the week or two after an update is released, but for some reason, I had a lot of fun. I think it was because it reminded me so much of UT/Quake 3 Rocket Arena, I found myself laughing more than cursing when I died. Plus all the new weapons, death animations (I had my head chopped off and I watched my own body spurt blood out of its neck), new maps (I REALLY like cp_gorge), getting lots of unlocks (I haven't played in over 6 months so it was really nice getting almost everything in one evening) and playing as a heavy or medic was a lot of fun that night (I was able to mow down 5-6 soldiers/demomen on a CP on gorge because a soldier used his banner at the right time, AWESOME.)

In short, I haven't had this much fun with TF2 since it was first released. But I'm just a noob who only plays every now and then, what do I know? Whatever, it's fun and that's all I care about.

As a long-time Soldier player, I have to say this long awaited update is a great success even though I have gotten only the Buff Banner and Equalizer (they skipped over my Direct Hit milestone). The Buff Banner's mini-crits is so fun to use (although I miss the gun salute taunt) and the Equalizer is so useful for certain situations.

Surprisingly, with the new soldier and demo update, I'm actually falling in love with the scout. I find it very effective to annoy those eyelander and targe-welding demomen.

What I also found out is that the Buff Banner actually gives the SG minicrits too!

Likely because those 2 have the most strategy about them that is hard to have a bot replicate.

Can anyone recommend any good servers on the east coast? I'm in NC and in all the games I join I have ridiculoysly high ping, and there aren't any programs running in the background or anything, so I figure I'm playing in servers too far from me.

Couldn't you just refresh the server list and then sort them by Ping and Player count? Wait for the entire list (should be about 3000 servers) to finish refreshing, click on "Ping" near the top of the server browser to sort by ping, and then click on "Players" to secondarily sort by player count.

If I'm at home I would paste some IPs for you to add, but I'm at work :(

Guys, I haven't played TF2 in over a year and I jumped in for a game I guess for the first time on my rig I built last summer. Anyone want to help me tweak settings so I get a better FPS? I was dropping below 30s on Gravel Pit.

And I found this posted in the TF2 steam forums of the new FaN knockback. (Thread Link)

You really shouldn't be having any problems. Turn down AA to 'None' and your AF to 'Bilinear.' See what that does.

Blog update.

@Cher, do you have multicore processing on? Also, monitor your resources when you run the game. What is your CPU idling at? What's it at in the game?

Bumpage. New update yesterday added new hats and weapons.

I found the Scottsman Skullcutter last night, as did another guy in the server I was in. The two of us had a blast running around with that and the shield just chopping peoples heads off.

I sware TF2 hates me. Every day since they changed the item update rules I been playing so I could get 1 item a day which would be around 40 mins - 1 hr on a good day.

Anyway the only new item I got was the heavy's chocolate bar (and that was after I smelted one). I keep getting items I already own and not even a single hat.

Hate to sound like an item whore, but is it possible for the drop system to get bugged? I've played this entire past weekend, probably a total of 12-15 hours or so, and haven't found a single item.

Anything is possible with the item system. With the previous change of giving out items based on playtime, from what I've read around the system resets your playtime counter every thursday(night?). I can sorta confirm it as last week I got 3 items playing Friday for a few hours, and the Wednesday prior I was getting nothing. Any who, regarding the item system bugging, anyone remember when they released one of the major updates and people were given items like every 5 minutes? A lot of them being camera beards? There's your example of the system getting bugged.
