    Im just saying the ring has nothing to do with christmas, this badge is probably for the Ebenezer, Bmoc, and Holiday Headcase, depending how many items you gave.

    And they still didn't fix the Cow Mangler dealing full crits instead of mini crits when a Pyro reflects them?

    Time to play alot more Pyro.

    Why did they have to fix the Detonator? Now that I was getting good at weapon switching for some 90 damage AND the improved flare jump... ;_;

    Godspeed, straight upgrade.

    Ebenezer for those who gift the least and BMOC for those who gift the most?

    My prediction anyways.
    Yet another top hat everybody will have...

    So essentially now we beg each other to buy secret saxtons in order to fight for some hats.
    This whole holiday shit is all about money.

    Well they did say that "everything would be back to normal on the 22nd" so I don't think it's an oversight.
