    I've been hearing a lot about this TOBOR recently, so I made a zero-effort drawing:

    It would be nice if a couple people mentioned in their emails about making it drop and giving it a recipe, because it'll be useable in the actual game, and is a weapon with unique stats.
    If not giving it an explicit recipe, make it a reward for completing the class training. It gives some more incentive for people to train, the training even teaches them how to rocketjump, then afterward it can just hand it over and go "hey, now you know how. Use this to practice"

    Making it like an achievement weapon is fine by me (no recipe, but easy to get anyway)
    Just want it to drop. This is all I ask of any item, make it randomly drop, don't let the drop system slowly die (thank god this is being fixed recently!)


    If anyone complains over a dollar worth of items being made easy to get after a year and a half, they have issues.

    Edited:

    also next weekend is PAX East

    Robots can't use stairs, TOBOR can't climb ladders. Makes perfect sense to me.

    they really have nothing they could even show at PAX. All there coming soon games are active betas and everyone knows all about those. That leaves Meet the Pyro, Cold Stream and the Portal 2 Custom Map DLC, and I don't see those being at PAX.

    Gabe will probably be there (he goes to most conventions, just as a guest though), but I doubt anything comes from it.

    I guess the best thing to hope for is a promo. At PAX West they gave out Purity Fists at the Squeenix Booth, so I guess maybe some other game?

    Well Valve had a booth at PAX East last year but that's only because they were pimping Portal 2 pre-release. Was a pretty cool showing too!

    The gamemode has robots and stuff
    foundry was added because of that. Why would you add a factory map in christmas.
    They were supposed to be aliens at first but it didn't fit the game.

    Guys, I know you probably didn't read the OP on the way here, and we were all like you once, but speculation shouldn't be entirely based on clueless assumptions.

    Unless you're asking for rainbows.

    Valve themselves called them Tobor in the Foundry map. Or atleast alluded to them with the "AUTO-BORAX" sign, with two planks of wood framing the letters "TO-BOR".

    Edited:

    Brokencrowning was the kid who got to go visit valve as part of make-a-wish.

    Are you waiting for them to put a poster with big words saying ROBOT? It would be weird.

    It was a hint and it was a very clever one.

    No, this brings us back to the mac update when they added unused robot textures in the game called tobor.vmt or something among those lines.

    Either way only one instance of "robot" appears in TF2, and not even in the game itself, but in a hidden page of the classless update, where so far we already had 3 instances of "Tobor"

    Because trying to make profit from something a game develloper spontaneously gave you because of a cancer is totally not the biggest dick move in Tf2 history.

    Also, using "lol".

    it really isn't? as I've said before, the only value behind the hat was its rarity. It isn't pretty, and a game item isn't nearly as sentimental as the tour was. The item was an after-thought, and not letting him trade it gives it exactly zero value.

    you care too much. most of us don't.
