    I only just noticed that the hat images have their names underneath. I remember it just being a plain grey bar there. Do I have a bad memory, or did that get changed?

    It's a private forum, which is the reason why he posted them there in the first place. I'm surprised they even got leaked to other places, really.

    unless you meant the hat list in which case you can find that yourself

    Nevermind, I went through the thread here and noticed you were the one posting them. You even edited it to say "Backbiter's Billycock" once they posted the names on the update page.

    Confirmed fake, sigh...

    I remember it said something else when I first read it.

    It also wouldn't make any sense that somebody has an updated tf_english.txt and that Valve completely abandoned their original naming conventions from the first hat pack; each hat is named "tf_[class]_hat_1", not "tf_[class]_[type of hat]". If it was the way the "leaked" list has it, then the existing Spy hat would be tf_spy_fedora, not tf_spy_hat_1.

    That wasn't trolling, this is a perfectly good thread (properly titled and all) to discuss the conspiracies, instead of making new threads.

    We weren't even talking about it anymore, hurr. Moved on to the fake hat list.

    Which by the way I traced (abused Google) back to SA, your "private forum". This is actually the second fake hat list to go around; the first one was made by somebody on the Steampowered forums a while back and it sounded just as believable.

    I also want to say that I've been wrong before (Spy update). I really do like the ideas in this hat list and I DO hope that it's real, but until we get some some extra evidence straight from Valve's blog, I'm declaring it fake.

    And for the record, in case some of you missed it:

    Code:
    "TF_Engineer_Cowboy_Hat" "Texas Ten Gallon"
    "TF_Engineer_Train_Hat" "Engineer's Cap"
    "TF_Heavy_Ushanka_Hat" "Officer's Ushanka"
    "TF_Heavy_Stocking_cap" "Tough Guy's Tuque"
    "TF_Soldier_Pot_Hat" "Stainless Pot"
    "TF_Soldier_Viking_Hat" "Tyrant's Helm"
    "TF_Demo_Scott_Hat" "Glengarry Bonnet"
    "TF_Medic_Tyrolean_Hat" "Vintage Tyrolean"
    "TF_Pyro_Chicken_Hat" "Respectless Rubber Glove"
    "TF_Spy_Camera_Beard" "Camera Beard"
    "TF_Medic_Mirror_Hat" "Otolaryngologist's Mirror"
    "TF_Pyro_Fireman_Helmet" "Brigade Helm"
    "TF_Scout_Bonk_Helmet" "Bonk Helm"
    "TF_Scout_Newsboy_Cap" "Ye Olde Baker Boy"
    "TF_Spy_Derby_Hat" "Backbiter's Billycock"
    "TF_Sniper_Straw_Hat" "Professional's Panama"
    "TF_Sniper_Jarate_Headband" "Master's Yellow Belt"
    "TF_Hatless_Scout" "Baseball Bill's Sports Shine"
    "TF_Hatless_Sniper" "Ritzy Rick's Hair Fixative"
    "TF_Hatless_Engineer" "Texas Slim's Dome Shine"
    "TF_Demo_Top_Hat" "Scottsman's Stove Pipe"

    Look at the hidden pages! The first letters of each sentence spell T.H.R.E.E.C.L.A.S.S. It's a Demo/Engie/Soldier update!

    Actually, if you poke through the CSS files for the hidden pages, there are hidden pieces of each of them singled out into their own images, all pointing to the Engineer.

    Not to mention the blatant snippet at the bottom of one of them mentioning the Soldier.

    Honestly, guys, I think they're just fucking with us for now. It's clearly the Classless Update with this one and they're probably going to drop hints to the next updates throughout the duration of the update days. Just settle down; it's only day 1.

    I'm a little curious as to what else this classless update could include. More hats and a trading system for one, maybe a couple more maps (hoping for some more ctf maps personally).

    Yet we've got 3 days left. How will they fill all three of them with just those? I can't wait.

    Who said we only have three days left? But I do agree; I was wondering myself how they're going to drag this out over even a whole week when there's probably not nearly as much content as a class update. Hopefully this means it'll come out faster. :D

    No one has said that, but through the general pattern of Valve Major Updates, the week it starts is the week it's released. If I remember right anyway.

    Do I have to show myself in ANOTHER speculation thread? I'm not even speculating anything special. But if by some far chance that it does turn out to be a class update, it will either be a soldier, soldier and a demo, or soldier/demo/engi.

    EVERYONE was right about the Spy update.

    Edited:

    I mean, Goddamn, there was a Spy that showed up every 6 minutes behind the Sniper in Day 3 obviously ready to Backstab him. Gets pretty obvious from then on.

    Edited:

    Also, I'll send an invite on my alt STEAM so you'd have someone to play L4D with.

    Wow, you really do like to inflate your ego, huh? You're acting like you're some kind of divine being who deserves royalty and respect because you guessed it right on one update. Your words are nothing more than what you just said yourself: speculation. You are guessing just like the rest of us. Unless you are actually a Valve employee risking your job to tell us these details early, then you are no more credible than I am.

    As for your actual predictions, you sound very wrong. Valve isn't playing us this time like they were last time; the whole novelty before was "LOL THE UPDATE IS A SPY!". There's no novelty in "LOL THE UPDATE IS A SOLDIER!". (Not to mention they possibly only did it just to have fun with the community...the damn kids at the Steampowered forums "predicted" a Spy update every single update) They said "Classless Update" and I think they're going to stick to it. Lots of hats, lots of maps, and a new game mode.

    It even took him 2 months before crediting me about something I found. And when offblast was announced he was like "OMFG LOOK HER I DREW A PPAYLOD MAP JUST LIKE IT! UFFBLOST IS ARNEA AND COMOUNITY MAED BUT THAT DOESNT MATTAER BCUS IMA ALWYAS RIHT!"
    I told him in the comments on his blog, and on facepunch. But no, he added it yesterday becase I was "butthurt". When you use 2 months to add something small like "Campin Carl found that detail" but can spew out A4 long stories of speculations you're at the most halfway right about, something is clearly wrong.
