Team Fortress 2: Mann vs Machine
« on: August 15, 2012, 04:04:40 pm »
Just kind of wondering... is anyone else really fucking excited for when this hits tonight?

If anyone's interested in playing some with me when it goes live, my Steam is "Yaezakura" (though the current display name is "Twilight Sparkle").

I'm going to have to wait until after work tomorrow, but it'd be nice to have more folks to play with.  It'll be good to go back to sniping.  Get the rust off and I'll be back to headshotting no problem.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

Bet they're doing this co-op thing so people can get some achievements that are just impossible to get

Ironbite-oh and found out Spys can disguise as a bot and sap 'em.

Well, yeah. But that's largely because the Day 2 update mentions that an upgraded sapper can disable entire groups of robots. lol

Still, it sounds cool. Right now, I'm mostly wondering if upgrades are persistent, or reset every game.

I'd be up for a game as soon as it F-ING LAUNCHES ARGH

And I thought I had got my waiting-game playtime quota in with Payday's Wolfpack DLC.

...God damnit. The whole fucking mode is nothing but a cash grab.

I've lost a lot of respect for Valve after this.

Relax, you only need to pay to get the cosmetic items. Seriously, just do what I plan to do and don't buy the tickets!

Yeah, but the cosmetic items are fun. But hell, here you're having to pay cash to then go out and EARN an item at random...

...

It's a huge reach to go from saying "the entire mode is a cash grab" to saying "you have to pay to earn random cosmetic items"

I thought Team Fortress 2 being a "Hat Simulator" was a joke :P

I just dislike the fact that to enjoy any of the new items, you have to pay money. These hats can never drop, can't be crafted, etc. Only get them from paying money to play the new mode.

*sighs* As much as I complain, I know damned well I'll invest money in it. I already buy keys and such occasionally. And one of the potential rewards is a blood-splattered Archimedes that you can take into battle with you.

How the fuck am I supposed to resist that?

That said... after the painfully long time it took to download the update... I can't play. ><; Item servers down, matchmaking down, store down... This update seems to have really thrown them for a loop.
