    nifty

    updated already.

    Looks like the only retroactive achievements are for the total amount healed (I have the first 2 completed, but they don't register yet, probably have to join a server).


    hmm, other 'updates':

    Nifty:
    Added new attack animations to most melee weapons
    Added new speech for the Heavy and Demoman
    Spies disguised as their own team can now capture control points


    Not So Nifty:
    Teleporter effect no longer shows up on invisible or disguised Spies. BAH I SAY!

    Questionable:
    Increased force taken by pipebombs by bullets and explosions. I think I will like it if it makes it easier to clear stickies.

    Interesting:
    2Fort
    Added medium ammo and health to basement hallways
    Added small ammo and health to top of spiral

    I always thought 2fort lacked in health/ammo pick ups (only places were in the sewers)

    Goldrush might just be my favorite map. Great stuff. You can't get sitting on the bomb as a heavy holding the fire button down.

    May 2nd to 4th. Free to play?

    Wtf? Is TF2 pay to play? haha

    Anyways, though this game has already been out for a while. I'm wondering if I should pick it up. Even though I'm also waiting for Age of Conan and I have GTA4 here. smile-fix.gif

    Welp just got the new syringe gun.

    It works exactly as the reviews say, only really good for running away although you can tank a heavy's minigun given enough range.

    It gives +3 health for each hit for those of you that don't know.

    The peculiar thing is that the game calls it a "Level 5 Syringe Gun". Does that mean there are three more coming? :O

    It's pay to play in that you pay to buy it and then you can play it. No montlhy fees, if that's what you mean. "Free to play" in this case means that it will be freely available even to people who haven't bought it. A sort of demo, if you like.

    Well then, I'm game for a demo.

    Still thinking about buying this. A demo will decide it more than likely, but i'm sure everybody already has it. tounge.gif

    One thing for sure, I'll be rockin Demo Man like in TF1. I miss the 3 charge time settings though.

    Might try to organise a get-together via SteamFriends for the Euros (and North Americans/Antepodeans who don't mind playing on a Euro server) to get some of the group achievements if anyone's up for it?

    This will probably happen Saturday or Sunday, during day or night. PM availability and I'll choose a time that fits the majority.

    Did they leave in the 10 million healing achievement? Yeah, hardly anyone is going to get that without cheating. Valve recently (a month or two ago) said that ONE guy in the world has that.

    Yeah... there's millions of people running around with all three medic unlocks, having used the unlock-all-achievements console command. I suspect valve'll be rolling those achievements back though, in time.

    I've gotten four of the medic unlocks so far! They seem to reward actual cool moments of gameplay that aren't inherently intentionally achievable. I can remember a few moments playing a medic and whooping with joy when something cool occurred. A few of those occasions have now been made into achievements.

    I'm not in any rush to blitz through them. I can't wait for the medic overpopulation to die down though. sad-fix.gif

    Reduce to 1 million, which anyone who has played any significant amount of medic already has, so that's OK.

    What else did they figure? One class with all the new shiny stuff will obviously be over-played for a few months now.

    So, some things I noticed:
    1) Medics screaming "Get on the point" when near the bomb! I remember that some one linked some of the never heard sounds and that is one of them, I am wondering if the 'get on the point' phrases will now all auto play

    2) Heavies seem to be the only class that has voice comments for the cart.

    Any one tried tossing around stickies yet? I haven't really seen them getting knocked around further...

    So far I have 9 achievements done. Don't expect to get the 1Million one for a while, though I did have some one join today and instantly get all 3, but he had about double my play time on medic.

    I think that there are some issues with some of the achievements. Some people are having problems getting the multi uber one (I watched some one try and it didn't take though he did it right). Getting the freeze cam taunt one is a PITA. I have been trying to get the one where you get an achievement for healing some one else as they get theirs, but no go...



    And Gold Rush is friken AWESOME!
    The map layout is interestingly similar to Dustbowl, just with a whole lot more awesome throne in.

    I mean, the place is a spy's wet dream. There are around 5 or so different paths to each CP. Tons of overlooks (the one that is on the Far Left as you attack the final point is one of my favorites for rocket spamming sentries from).

    Seriously, wonderfully done map.

    And I like the ideas they have mentioned (using the 'cart' as a mobile assault platform where you get engies building on top of it and stuff)

    Gettin' really annoyed with two things.

    1) Medics everywhere. *Everywhere*. 9 medics on a team of 12, on defence, is rather over the top. Why didn't they think about that, seriously. If they're going to do it for each class, there's going to be a 2-3 week overpopulation of each class surrounding each update. Which is going to be really, really annoying.

    2) That achievement unlocker code thing. People spamming it everywhere, then people who're using it calling everyone else "noobs" for not using it, and all that. Just plain silly.


    But yeah, I'm probably gonna be staying away from the game for a while, 'til all this dies down.

    Side note, any one else getting silly numbers for their total captures the previous round? I got like 9 captures from one trip....

    If Nostradamus predicted a load of stuff that is totally ######ing obvious, then yes.

    Also, goldrush + demoman = lame. Stickies everywhere. Try getting a cart that is stuck right before the final point but can't advance because there are 32 stickies around it and you'll see what I mean.

    Yeah, I got two captures for one capture on goldrush. I thought maybe the worth of the cap changes depending on how much pushing you're involved in or something.


    Speaking of the medic achievements, I wonder how long it'll be before anyone earns them all legitimately. The one that seems like the hardest to earn is the "on a team with no medics, the first to go medic and heal someone after they call for a medic" one. Because there are always medics everywhere.

    define legitimately.

    I mean, once the craze dies down 'play doctor' will be easy. However you will NEVER get some of the other ones unless you are fooling around (uber heavy fisting people? Getting 5 kills with your uber ready? etc etc)

    im pretty sure you get a capture on goldrush for when you capture the cart, so if you get close to it and it starts moving, then back away then get close again that counts as 2 captures. im not sure if when you get it to a point it will count again, i would imagine so but i might be wrong.
