    I think the most desired fix in the game for a non-technical feature is the Last Breath fix. Then again, the Last Breath holds the issue where if they fix it, there is definitely no room in that damn thing for the Pyro to actually have a head inside.

    Oh crap. Unintentional page king. Uh....

    They'd have to change the skeleton of the FaN if they want to fit it with the shotgun animations.
    Or give the Engineer new animations so the reload and stuff fits.

    They could do a multi-day update on Thursdays if they wanted to, like, it could go Thursday, Friday, then a break for the weekends and then the last three days, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
    Welp, the Australian Christmas was 2 days (3 if you count Wednesday's Comic) and it was a Major content update, but if they're gonna release something as big as this long rumored new game mode and the last Meet the Team short, I'm expecting it in the Über Update like-form.

    no, that's the beauty of this idea

    they can take that one double barreled shotgun someone made that uses the regular Shotgun animations, and use THAT with the FAN stats.

    No need for new anims for Engy and he can have an identical weapon as the FAN.

    I go for Svdl's set, though I love BANG's set aswell.
    Thing is that a medieval inspired Stickylauncher has more I like about it than a modern(-ish) Stickylauncher.
    Now imagine if that sticky launcher was added to medieval mode. :V

    No. Just no. Svdl specifically stated that it's just a medieval-ish sticky launcher. Not meant for medieval modw.

    I'd love the Winger and (INB4 Shitstorm) the Force-a-Nature for Engineer.
    Holy shit, force a nature for the engie and pyro would be amazing.

    Would make a nice alternative to wrangler jumping and detonator jumping at the cost of shorter clip/no fire damage.

    I really want it now that you've mentioned it.

    Sounds like it was pushed out too soon, pretty great achievement for one guy by himself though.

    Paradox gave him a deadline well before he could actually finish the game, he had to ship it RIGHT NOW even if it wasn't done.

    Which is really bad for business. I'm not sure why Paradox would send a game to die rather than just waiting a few months and having the game actually work and probably making some money from it.

    Hello everybody. I'm sort of new to this whole, contacting the TF2 team thing. I've sent an email to both Robin and Gabe over the time of 2 months, and as I look back on it now, they were probably not the two to contact.
    To be honest, getting a response from Valve is more or less a crapshoot. Heaven knows they must get hundreds of emails a week, and often don't have time or inclination to answer them. I've contacted several people in the past, but I usually have the most consistent luck getting a reply back when I email Brandon Reinhart.

    Unfortunately, your request sounds like the type of email they ignore most often. Things like that often force them into awkward corners of predicting release dates and future plans, two topics they avoid like the plague.

    I'll probably pick it up at a later date after the steam worshop stuff is done anyway.

    I've gotten exactly one email back from the TF2 team (I've sent maybe a dozen), but they've fixed bugs I've sent to them within a few weeks, so I know they do read them.

    And the reply was something I needed a reply for... but then they never replied to the reply I gave back >_>

    They're really variable with who they respond to and when.

    I've gotten replies for menial things and had no reply for important things, and I've had the inverse where little things get ignored and big things are responded to.

    It's like a roulette. Having a way to contact them directly instead of e-mail probably helps greatly.

    A shame, considering that he had them at the studio in order to record the MtM lines, shouldn't they use that opportunity to get new medic lines since he's the only class lacking of new ones?

    Also, every Thursday is the night, but will tonight THE night? *winkwink*

    Maybe it's just my selfish self wanting to try the Family Business on Engineer, since it seems like that would be a much better match for those stats than Heavy.

    Actually, having been using the Shotgun on Pyro lately, having those extra finisher shots would be amazing. The damage loss is... minor, if you're using it primarily for finishing off people.

    But the FB has really bad clipping on those classes, and it has Russian stuff on it and really has little to do with Engy or Pyro. And there's tons of great shotguns on the workshop, some of which aren't even parts of sets.


    Would be awesome if it was remade to be a little closer to the concept though.

    Pyro was the only one who got new lines for laughing in that update, which is odd unless the VA for Spy and Pyro was in for other stuff. (Meet the Pyro?)

    He even did lines for High-Fives, which only about 20% of the lines are actually used. But again, same VA.

    Medic got jack shit, though. A shame.

    Engineer has had 2 or 3 dry caughy chuckles in-game since forever. They just took all three and combined them into one line by blending them and timing them right.

    I think they did that for everyone except Pyro (since he doesn't have any laughs they could reasonably use).

    For Spy you can even hear the second half of his laugh (with the snort) it's one of his "kill a large amount of people in a short time" lines. Soldier too, I think the same response criteria.

    Valve should use this cobbling method to make some cheap Medic domination lines then.
