when I first saw your post I half didn't believe it.

I'm really kinda curious as to how they handle this one. I've been thinking for a while that an engi update might be the most difficult to balance, and have wondered if they would bother with one at all. The opening post they put up agrees with that, so I'm really interested to see where they go with it.

Don't worry, they haven't really bothered with balance for a while now.

And now the Homewrecker (Pyro's useless sledgehammer) can remove sappers from friendly buildings with one swing.

Valve is trying to make the Pyro into an Engineer Buddy. :\ I want to kill stuff with fire! If I wanted to babysit a sentry nest I'd just play Engineer!

Just consider it a reverse of the real Australia: all Australians here are intelligent, pleasant, civilized people, but Australia is a place where technology is shunned and distrusted by the government forcing the people into a Luddite nightmare.

(Or it's just ****ing hilarious. Also of note: look on the last page. Radigan Conagher built three immortality machines but the last name is obscured. What's going on?)

I'm 99% certain that in the TF2 universe, Civil War Pyro was Abraham Lincoln.

Also of note: 1890 Engineer is Nikola Tesla, Sniper is Davy Crockett, Medic might be Louis Pasteur, Scout might be Billy the Kid, and I'm sure everyone else is someone too, but I can't identify them.

If they threw in fictional people, I'm sure Heavy is John Henry.

The doctor is a toughie, since there's a number of big names from that era. I figured it was Robert Koch, a Nobel Prize winner who isolated tuberculosis and cholera. It's tough get more 1890s than cholera and tuberculosis.

And look at 'im!

I guess era and age probably doesn't matter that much though, now that I think about it, since Crockett had already led a pretty damn full life by the Alamo, so even assuming he lived through that he'd have been hella old by 1890. At the very least he's inspired by 'im though.

I'm guessing no.

I'm thinking it's a reference to the last person mentioned in Zepheniah Mann's will and cut out of the side of this picture of them.

The Announcer seems to have either independently come across some other form of immortality to still be the same age in 1890 or is Elizabeth's descendant.

The nerdy conspiracy theorist in me really wants this mystery person to end up being Cave Johnson, founder of Aperture Science.

EDIT: Meanwhile, preparation for the Engie update has begun with this being snuck into the game with the last update.

There's also two versions of the engineer update page, one without the shotgun revealing some additional jokes underneath:

You can make the new Engineer wrench by crafting an Ambassador with scrap metal. It doesn't swing any faster or get random crits, but it does have a bleed effect like the wood Sniper kukri.

Moving buildings is awesome as long as you have a bodyguard. When you're carrying a building, you slow down and can't switch from the toolbox, so you're completely vulnerable. Also if you die while you're moving a building, your building is destroyed along with the toolbox it's in.

I can't wait for the inevitable "Uber engineer carries a L3 sentry behind enemy lines" flanking maneuvers!

Nope. I'm getting sort of tired of public servers sucking because people think it's "humiliating" to get killed with the fish, leading to 3 or 4 scouts per side whether it makes sense or not. The first time I got fish killed I was playing a Medic and was on fire at the time and two scouts were chasing me. That's not humiliating; that's just Team Fortress.

I am so pissed about this update.

Because they made everything you had before it went live 'Vintage'. Which is cool.

But I smelted everything I owned to try to get a golden wrench.

And I am furious with rage. I want to punch a hippie.

Sometimes I think I'm the only person who genuinely enjoys playing medic. It's the improvising moments to be unusually aggressive that makes it worthwhile. Just now, my uber target got blown off the tower by a sticky bomb so I charged the enemy demoman while still uber and sawed his ass before switching back to my medigun (with a bit of uber left to spare) again in order to make back it to the point and finish capping it. I just don't think it occurred to him that I might do that.
