where are the contracts?
They're broken, silly.
And they will be until tomorrow.
I really miss spells, this a disappointment.
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.
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.
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.
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?
why quote me in particular
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
So The crates were glitched Giving out the Universal Killstreak Kits, Unique Unusuals & Strange Unique items, its been patched but they are still in the game as being unique and strange. GG Valve
Pit of Death is so much fun.
Are they even trying anymore
Can you get Halloween 2015 items via transmuting with the Gargoyle? Like, could I get a Death Racer's Helmet?
I'm pretty sure they don't give a fuck. That has to be photoshopped.
So what are the airplane cosmetics? Theyre restricted and arent in the crate so i assume you can only get them via transmute?
A bit disappointing there are no free items you can get with this event.
Anyone get a contract yet?
got into match making and
game crashed instantly
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.
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.
