...the unlockable medigun we're play testing right now switches out the 10 second invulnerability effect for 10 SECONDS OF 100% CHANCE OF CRITICAL HITS.

One of the new Medic achievements is to heal ten million points - that's like three months of pretty intense healing...There's one guy in the world who's got that right now.

(though that was scrapped, apparently)

    honestly, I am really looking forward to these. New achievements, unlock ables, I like it all.


    That being said, I should finish getting friends like these....

    Is it going to come out before DNF? Is TF2 going to be dead by then?

    I'm all for new features, but I really don't want to have to grind to get them. Life's too short.

    Maybe if you smoke and do drugs and join the army. The rest of us have 80+ years to waste.

    Hope we can get some "fun" achievements this time, like, punch a level 3 sentry to death or run a complete circuit around a map without killing anyone or dying.

    Indeed. The problem with every 'Achievement' system I've seen is that they don't reward quality, they reward quantity. The problem being of course for the Developer, how do you implement 'quality' achievements that aren't just exploited within 20 minutes by everyone on the planet?

    I like the concept of unlockables, but wish they were based on how well the person plays, not that they're 12/unemployed/socially inept. smile-fix.gif

    Hey, us socially inept have to have something going for us.

    But I would like to see more fun acheivements like get a medic to uber you as a spy, or light a whole team on fire.

    It's not an easy balance to achieve, but we do want to make a game that will be both the best competitive game since Starcraft and also one that many people can enjoy casually without being in a clan or an experienced or knowledgeable NS player. That's the goal at least!

    BUAHAHAHAAHA

    I love those Ideas!

    Just b/c it would be cute I would also like to see more auto taunts tied to events like that, like mad cackling when you manage to set an entire team on fire biggrin-fix.gif

    (much like the ones we have to dealing massive amounts of damage already, most often heard after nuking a CP as demo man)

    well, set 5 people on fire at the same time, and get someone to *heal* you (not uber you) as a spy are already achievements, so I guess they could make those the next steps...

    There are quite a lot of sounds which never get used (mostly auto taunts I reckon) if you check the tf2 steam file, some are really odd but hilarious never the less.

    Here are some selected examples: http://rapidshare.com/files/102831080/TF2_sounds.rar.html (note, there are not only unused sounds in there, some are favs I never get to hear clearly in-game).
