    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.
    it also makes people really happy when you buy them it, in my experience. That or most of my close friends are freeloaders.

    I've been on a Mad Max/Hokuto no Ken craze as of late and it looked better than I thought, so thanks Valve and Psyke and team

    No update page is a weird and disapointing decision.
    Also it seems kinda strange Brimstone is shipped as a separate map instead of just updating Hellstone, but maybe it's different enough to justify it? I haven't actually played it yet so I'm not sure.

    Edit: Also the ability to save and load your map settings is really since but the icon should do something to indicate it saved, like change color.

    Edit2: I see Brimstone is an update of 5Curve not Millstone. My mistake.

    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.
    This. Fucking this.

    I don't care how hard people worked on something, in fact, Im not even complaining about it! (except that one boring koth map added this year that made up 1/3 of the new maps).
    my issue is with the how fucking bare-bones this update is: 3 maps, 2 hat unusual effects that are worth your time, 4 taunt Unusual effects, and another fucking tiered case.

    There's so LITTLE to do after the merasmissions that it's not worth it (especially now that the things don't fucking work). I can't bring myself to play more than one round before fucking off to youtube to watch videos or a different game!

    In fact, i'm willing to say this may be the WORST Scream Fortress event of all time. Yes, you CAN play the old maps. But why would you want to when there's nothing you can get out of them besides what you got every other year.

    hate me as you like, just know that Im loudly upset not because I hate Scream Fortress. I actually LOVE the halloween updates since 2012's and I only want to see it get better.

    Edited: Well Kitt, you always said you wanted a Star-Themed Unusual Effect in-game: Well here you go
    I am, although I'm a little stumpted as to why they didn't consider Yellow Stars as well, which are probably a more popular color choice for stars usually, more so cartoony designed ones. With my luck though I can't even get the effect on the hat I wanted anyway, like the invasion update. Which is why I wish they were tools that can be applied to any hat that can be an unusual. I want my Merc Mohawk with either Nebula or the Pruple Shooting Stars Valve! lol

    Also, make them not worth a million keys either... Being an all class hat it probably would be 500+ keys to try and get one lol.

    Also, out of curiosity. I know having an item you made that gets into the game gives the makers a community version of it. Do they do anything for taunts or unsuaul effects? Like for effect you get to pick a specific hat to get the effect placed on it by chance?

    Guess I'll jump into the game now that I got home from the Rehabilitation Center to check up on a friend of mine and the games done updating.

    Congrats to everyone who got something into the update by the way!

    Of course the first of the new effects I see ingame is the green Stars on a Merc's Mohawk lol.

    that's what I meant. You can get fun out of them, in fact I still find some fun in Manor_event.

    my issue is that it's always the same, and the elements that made them more interesting (the gifts) have been taken away and replaced with those soul gargoyles that are pretty much not worth seeking because of how easy it is to get souls in general.

    Not to mention that most prior years usually introduced some form of new mechanic.

    I mean, why the hell couldn't we have done something with PASS or MANNpower?

    Anywat, those New Unusualifers don"t let you choose what taunt you can put it on, you get one that can only be Placed on a specific taunt
    For example there is a Oblooterated one on the Market that can only go a Oblooterated taunt

    Valve allowing glitched items to further muddy up the economy? Who would have guessed.

    since the unusuals update affects the effects found in all crates, any unusual mohawks unboxed during this time period will be guaranteed to have one of the 4 new effects, so 1/2 of them will be ones you want.

    So I'd have to unbox a lot of those all class hat crates then I presume...
    Gotta be fun being on a very tight budget since I just moved a few months ago lol.

    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?
    Wait, what do you mean?

    I was fairly grossed out but seeing screenshots, they seem cheapened.

    Personally, I always associate yellow quality items as standard common items.

    So at the beginning of the update, the patch notes read that there were 22 cosmetics in this collection. A very short while later, one of the items, the "Improv Coonskin Cap" was deleted from the game and apparently pulled from the Steam Workshop. Which would mean that its only record of ever existing was the short while it was actually in the game. You can see its schema deletion entry here. However, it turns out, you can still see its backpack icon, which was uploaded to the Steam servers before its removal.



    So what are the airplane cosmetics? Theyre restricted and arent in the crate so i assume you can only get them via transmute?
    The airplane cosmetics are indeed in the case, as bonus items to go alongside a cosmetic from the collection. The airplane cosmetics just aren't a part of the Creepy Crawly Collection, that's all.

    By the way, is anyone planning to post/take screenshots of new items. Workshop screenshots are kind of stylized & disorganized, wonder how they all look under regular conditions, maybe from loadout view.

    Maybe I can be lucky and someone will trade me the Merc's Mohawk with this...
