    I think the most terrifying thing about this year's Halloween is how bad it is.

    I'm not saying the items or maps are bad; just that valve's selection and setup of this year is utterly sad, and they could of picked MUCH BETTER ITEMS THAT WERE MORE BEFITTING OF HALLOWEEN.

    seriously, slasher isn't one?

    It hasn't even been a few hours, and I'm already bored of the event.

    It's just not the same, back then there was always something new and exciting. A map with completely new, unseen gimmicks, spells, zombies, spellbooks, even the contracts managed to be fresh enough to do it for me, not to mention the comics.
    This year, on the other hand, just feels like a pre-recorded message of "Happy Halloween!" and nothing much else. Yeah, the idea's there, but none of the stuff that made it exciting.
    Not even that, dude.

    The new KOTH map (Maple Ridge Event) has no spells, no bosses, no Hell, no ghosts, no skeletons. There are NO Halloween-related gameplay modifiers besides the ones forced game wide (getting souls from kills and the occasional crit pickup). It's just a spooky reskin of a completely normal map, but all of the actual Halloween shit is just gone.

    Pit of Death at least has spells, but I haven't gotten into that one yet.

    I haven't played Brimstone yet, so that might be good. But with only 3 maps to pick from this year, 1 is basically just a normal map. We have literally half the Halloween this year that we had last year.

    I can outright declare that Slasher isn't included because it was late. Don't be frustrated with Valve, there's always next year.

    The big truth of Facepunch is that we're always frustrated with Valve.

    That isn't a valid excuse on Valve's behalf, I WILL be fustrated with valve, as this isn't the first, nor last time they have gypped us. Slasher was probably one of the better maps and we got FUCKING MAPLE RIDGE which is basically a fucking reskin and nothing more.

    And we'll keep eating it up because Valve has given us Stockholm Syndrome.

    Oh hey, "The Victory Leap" is using animations that have been in the game for a long time. Neat I guess. Can you honk with it too, cause I remember there being animation for that as well.

    This is big coming from you, but I can't not be frustrated with Valve for their decisions with this update.

    I mean, they didn't even give mappers like yourself a deadline this year. Last year, ya'll had a full month to work on and submit your maps for Halloween. This time, you had less than a week of notice, and I think that's pretty shitty.

    Don't you dare use the lack of my map to insult the inclusion of others.

    There isn't even an update page for the halloween update... Does that mean that it will only be classified as a "content pack" on the wiki?

    Some time after the Pound Sterling dropped, methinks. Sounds right.

    How is it an excuse that Void submitted his map too late to get added? The only person who can really be considered responsible for that is the mapmakers. It's a great map and I would've liked to see it get added, but there's no way you can spin this that it's Valve's fault that it didn't get added.

    Valve did the same with Sinshine last year
    It was Also just a Reskin with no Spells or bosses ect

    The truest comment to ever arise on Facepunch's wafty doors.

    but neither does a tiny flying UFO alien honestly...
    Pretty sure ufos and aliens fit right in nicely with halloween.

    May have helped if Valve gave more a Week Notice
    And they did release the update much Earlier then any other update
    As the last 7 were released between the 26th and 29th, while today is the 21st

    Well this update could have been a lot better if they had just enabled gift drops in the old maps...

    I don't get the point of the soul gargoyles when you can literally just level your gargoyle up by killing bots on tr_walkway.

    Valve could redeem themselves by pulling off some of the older restrictions on items that don't really need them. Or at least putting a modicum of effort into it. Or a single new weapon skin.
    Halloween's something the majority of tf2 players look towards highly.
    It doesn't give me good hopes for the pyro update.

    The transmogrifier thing that lets you swap 3 useless hats for a possibly-good-but-probably-a-Death-Support-Pack Halloween-restricted cosmetic, of course!

    I meant the ghost gargoyle pickups on the map. I'm fine with the campaign marker item as is (thank god for the transmogrify feature) but the pickups are so dumb compared to what was there before.

    Again, it's just valve wanting more money out of it. The valve we used to know is long-dead. I used to enjoy running around and getting the halloween gifts and such.

    This is just really sad. I would of bloody well put together part of the update if needed be. It wouldn't of been original, but it would of been something other than "here's two blog posts please insert cash".

    I had a bad feeling about the whole ordeal when we saw the wedding ring added. That was when I had extreme doubts about HL3 ever existing. Or valve ever making another game.

    If you even had a lick of excitement, that shit should be on Happy already.

    Back to items, I love the new content. It's just so goofy and I love it all. But why the cardboard copter restriction? Why wasn't the soda popper reverted?

    You do know you're also supporting fellow community members by taking part in these updates and any monetary involvement is entirely optional, yeah? There's also a considerable amount of work that would need to go into something like this, even if it was an unofficial community project, if you've ever taken part in the development of any sort of similar project, you'd know what it takes to do something like this. Stop being so aimlessly pessimistic and negative towards things that don't exactly align with your own view of how things should be handled, everything has a silver lining.

    Also, the Something Special for Someone Special and the existence of Half-Life 3 are not correlated at all. The whole Valve office didn't just roll into the TF2 section to ship a wedding ring that also benefits a community contributor each time its purchased.

    You seem strangely- and extremely -defensive over these people, even when most of what you're saying flies in the face of the quality of recent output. This also isn't an excuse when we had utter assloads of content in 2014.

    But please, continue imagining silver linings that aren't there. You'll do WONDERS for the quality of the future updates.

    Valve continues to do this because we do not raise more of a fuss.

    Also yes, I'm pretty sure that the diamond ring was valves way of saying "Fuck you."- they could of made countless better things in that rate, not to mention the literal gold bricks whenever somebody receives a golden frying pan.

    Valve is so fucking rich at this point that they don't even need to do anything. They are literally being paid for doing nothing.
