The Mann-Conomy Update
« on: 18 Feb 2009, 17:33 »

Am I the only one who still plays this game? I hope not.

So Valve has finally got around to releasing the next update. It's the Scout

It's gonna be a lot of fun to be a natascha wielding heavy or an engineer for a couple of days.

Holy shit, The Sandman.

Ultimate uber buster. That's a hell of a disadvantage too, though.

Nah, those achievements don't sound too bad. I can see getting most of those through normal play.

The map update makes me curious, though. It suggests the new scattershot will make the Scout even more ridiculously mobile.

I think this might be the best update for any class thus far. It's turning the scout into the ultimate support class.

So, updates to Fastlane? There's a map that could use a little attention. (I'm pulling a backup copy of the current version out of the .gcf anyway, just in case.)

It's currently 5 PM on Monday, and they haven't put up the Monday update. Don't you just love Valve Time? :lol:

Looks like there's a double-barrel shotgun and a payload race map coming.

What will be the next "Meet The X" video, Spy, Medic, or Pyro?

"Spies can now control which weapon the enemy team sees them holding. "

I like how they just slipped that in there. That should make the "waah disguises are useless" spies happy.

"Gee, it sure is scout around here" is the best way to describe practically every server now. Oh well, more noob scouts running around to light on fire. :-D

Thoughts on the new unlocks:

Sandman: It's fun to knock people out with it, but I wish alt-fire hit the ball and normal fire swung the bat. How else are you supposed to bat enemy stickies? Also, the ball's hitbox for picking it up should be bigger. Right now it likes to roll into inaccessible places like under the boxcars in Well. Also, the knockout time should be halved on ubered enemies. It takes long enough for a medic to build that up, just to have some scout half a map away make it useless. (Never mind multiple Sandman-wielding scouts.) I'm not saying take the counter-uber away completely, just shorten it. I've heard people liken it to the pyro's compression blast, but at least when they're doing that you can kill them.

Force A Nature: Whee, extra jumps! But I think the knockback is overpowered; if it's made to do more damage up close, isn't sending your target 20 feet away counterintuitive? I got it, played with it for a bit, and went back to the scattergun. It does roughly the same amount of damage, but with a higher clip capacity.

Bonk!: Another fun toy to play with, but so far I find the pistol more useful.

strangely enough, the people that usually play TF2 on the 360 are usually pretty nice to "noobs" and generally not representative of the douche-bag majority on XBL.

I have no idea, but I think I trust Valve enough to expect good things from it.

I expect that it'll actually effect gameplay, though. I'd feel pretty disappointed if I just end up with a silly hat that doesn't actually do anything but look silly.

Sniper.

Quote from: Valve
It's been a couple of weeks since we posted, so we thought it'd be good to do some housekeeping. The next class pack will focus on the Sniper. It's actually shaping up to be the largest TF2 update yet, with multiple new maps and a bunch of gameplay tweaks. In addition, we've got another update in the works that should be done before the Sniper, and that one will include some new content for all classes.

If it will make me go "FUCK AHRG SHITSNIPER FUCK!" less, then this is good. I don't do it that much anymore, mostly because I've learned that "I will avenge you by charging blindly on" is no good idea. Open expanses are also to be avoided. Still, those skilled snipers (and spies)... GODDAWMN!
