    Why do some of you guys have to be mean to new posters. I get it if they are shitposting or whatever but can you really blame them for being hyped about a new potential update and wanting to talk about it. They may have been people like myself who have been lurking sense before the love and War update and have just recently started actually posting. I know im new here and its not entirely my place to say this but you should be welcoming new posters not being biased towards them just because they're new. And like punchy said if they went out of there way to go to the tf2 section they likely know what they are saying to some extent.
    The issue is not "this person is not in the circlejerk-shun them"

    It's that these people have no idea what they're talking about and all they contribute is "WHERE IS THE UPDATE?" "TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT!" "Why do some of you guys have to be mean to new posters?"

    If they're here to visit the TF2 thread people have told them about clearly they have some sort of idea as to why they're on the website in the first place
    Maybe they were on the website to see what the forums are like and don't just sign up to sites without knowing how good they are?

    Some of those new posters instantly mark FP off as bad when they get a single dumb rating which instantly causes some people to dislike them.

    Out of my experience, 90% of people here treat new users VERY nicely, unless they sign up and do something really fucking stupid or make a shitpost for their first post.

    This really could use some better sorting features, like "by Game" and "by Friends." Tons of people are streaming mostly games I don't care about, or anime. Tough to find friends streaming (though that does at least show up in activity so I guess they want you to look there instead).

    And it'd be really cool if you could schedule broadcasts and look for upcoming events there, instead of relying on being in someone's group and using that event system.

    Does this let you broadcast non-steam things, such as 3DS Max? I could see a lot of potential for workshop modelers to show off their processes.
    yeah, you can broadcast non steam games iirc. not sure on the rules for programs like that though. but it does seem like a great idea for that.

    you guys realize you're all shitposting about shitposting, right? nothing is going to change because a few of you disagree with people saying 'tonight's the night' and if anything it only adds to the 'spam' as you'd describe it.

    and yes I realize that by posting this I am shitposting about shitposting about shitposting. shitposting-ception.

    Parka:



    Vase looks a bit ugly, Parka looks great, imo.
    Did Lara wear a parka like that in the classic games? Don't get me wrong, it looks fantastically modeled, but it doesn't really make me think of Tomb Raider when I see it.

    I don't see why people think it'll be added just because "the tag got removed" (which makes even less sense). Just wait a few hours and you'll get your results.

    I'm assuming it's from a different more specific game because as infected said it looks like a unique jacket and nothing like anything iconic from tomb raider

    Actual speculation here, do we know what the exact purpose of the train in EOTL is? All I remember is Blu has a train, Red has to stop it; but what's in the cars?
    Where's it going? What truly is at the end of the rails? And how does the orphanage come into play with all this?

    From the trailer:



    It's going from the Blu Base to the Red Base. It's full of bombs.

    Oh, thanks. I guess I just need to rewatch the trailer. :P

    Edit: Rewatched; Jeez, the plan is on screen for about 3 frames. No wonder I missed it before.

    He believes the culprits might be the very people who, uh, soiled your update, and you are in a unique position to confirm or disconfirm that suspicion.

    Man, and to think it was pre-rendered promo art. 3D modelling really came long way.

    Anyway, it's 3 XII here already, looks like GG for TR announcement as planned

    It's slightly inconsistent from the handwriting from Expiration Date. I always thought that it was rather incongruously neat.

    maybe not strictly-speaking "legally" but it's part of the official rules

    Well if you're planning to attack the enemy, penmanship is not a factor. Only strategy.

    Aren't the mercs supposed to be nigh illiterate?
    Didn't he try to read some name in one of the ring of fired comics, struggle then think it was "communism"?
    Seems a little off.

    I always assumed that the Spy wrote their names on the cards and gave them to the mercs to write their bucket lists on.

    I think it was less that he couldn't read it, but more that he read the first letter of "Sears" and automatically assumed it meant "socialism". That doesn't rule out the idea that Soldier isn't very good at reading, though.

    Which one?

    The one with Ph D in old Russian literature

    The one who read Sun Tzu

    The one who lost eye reading Bombonomicon

    The one with 17 degrees

    Or the one with medical licence in surgery?
