    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.





    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.
    It's probably for the best, it's a pretty ugly hat.

    can we undo an update? can we do that?

    because this feels like it was thrown together last minute. and i mean that as in there wasn't a game-breaking bug; they literally did the entirety of the update last minute.

    i dont even want pyro update if this is what it's going to be like

    Come on, this update didn't make the game worse in any way, it just didn't add anything substantial to it.

    It's a fucking bullet to the balls for me.

    I am a Halloween fanatic, and seeing one of my favorite games put out a bad halloween even hurts like how everyone else felt during Meet your Match.

    come to think of it, that's what SF8 is: Meet your Match for Scream Fortress fans.

    Except Meet Your Match stays year long. We only get this til Nov 9. Which is even more a kick in the balls.

    as you can tell, i'm not big on the other year-round cosmetics, which is why i like the more kickass halloween items.

    I'm having more fun on the new Pit map than I ever had on Harvest_event, or Carnival, or Eyeaduct. By that metric I'd say it's at LEAST middle of the road in terms of Halloween update quality so far, you guys need to chill. And Valve servers always shit the bed when a new update comes out, give it a few hours and the contracts will be up.

    This update does feel a little thrown together last minute, especially with the lack of an update page. I can understand why Valve would be too busy this year to do an update but I hope they have time to make some new content for Halloween next year.

    Has anyone even got a Merasmisson yet? I'm I didnt get one upon booting up the game or booting up a match
    Nope I haven't gotten one. The GC servers are most likely being hammered right now.

    Three things:

    #1 Fuck these map changes in competitive. They will never listen to community outcry when it comes to maps. Also, hoo-lee shit they spent like 20 minutes on the materials/icons for this update didn't they?

    #2 I like some of the cosmetics in this update. The heavy's new shirt, the new spy set, and new helicopter/plane models finally showed up

    #3 Does anyone have a list of the holloween restricted items?

    garbage update with one decent map and two mediocre maps and next to no "good" cosmetics.
    the kicker is that they added brimstone (which is hellstone but a thousand fucking times less shit) and kept fucking hellstone in.

    ""halloween"" cobtracts that don't work because you forgot to turn them back on, just shows how little thought went into this update.

    oh and they also forgot to give soul gargoyles to people who deleted their soul gargoyles.
    here i thought we couldn't top how bad ETOL was but i guess we have.

    oh and congrats valve for showing everyone on this update that you only wanted your customer's money and don't care how much corner cutting you do to release a ""Major Content Update"" to your 7+ year old game.

    you may as well just start development on """Team Fortress 3""" and hope to god that you don't fuck up as badly as you did with this update alone.

    oh but wait

    THERE'S MORE!

    it took you people 4 whole fucking years to make a competitive ""matchmaking"" system that was just cut/pasted matchmaking that MvM uses, along with ZERO weapon restrictions or class limits (because fighting 4 engineers while trying to push last is FUN, RIGHT GUYS?)
    the community has had it's own competitive for YEARS now and you suddenly think you can force people to use your Godawful, untested trainwreck of a system and OUTRIGHT IGNORE THE COMMUNITY'S SUGGESTIONS FOR SAID SYSTEM AND THEN REMOVE THE "Beta" TAG FROM SAID SYSTEM? i think not. the community will still use their own competitive formats because they work and your silly excuse for a competitive format is fucking asine garbage that will be looked at in disappointment for future generations.
    you guys can give me shit all you want but i have at least one valid point in that "rant" about how badly valve fucked up this time, at this point you people should hope that they don't do the same to sissmas 2016.

    That's what I thought at first too but Brimstone is based on Fifth Curve/5Curve, which is a different map but by the same map maker has Hellstone/Millstone.

    If this is worse than EOTL, why don'tcha just call it quits? I mean, we can't change minds but personally I'm cool with the update.

    The contracts will work, gice them time. They get rushed by needy people as is, so we might as well give them a form of break.
    The maps bit i agree with. Altho slasher was late it's still a bit meh we didn't get a big exciting one like gorge_event was (at least, theme wise)
    Why would you delete the Gargoyle? They couldve brought Transmogrifying back randomly.
    I can't comment on comp because I avoid it like the plague

    Also, is this site known for community suggestions as much as Reddit is?

    Other have beaten me to the punch with this, but still, I wouldn't really say it was plagiarised on purpose, with the fact they both seem to be based off of Saint Edward's Crown. With all due respect to Royzo, The Fancy vs Nasty Update has kinda slipped off of everyone's radar, and I don't believe he reuploaded all the content in it to the TF2 workshop (and knowing the TF Team nowadays they wouldn't want to faff about with implementing content uploaded on the old legacy contribute page).

    it's just a coincidence, they both seem to be based on the same real life crown. Mine was at least.
    I had a sketch of a crown like this for TF2 as well, I based it also off of existing real life version of said crown.

    I wanted to try and make special crowns towards Comp matchmaking in hopes competitive matchmaking kicked off. If it did become popular, I was wishful thinking that Valve should hold maybe 1 or 2 annual tournaments by ranks and prizes could be stuff like these hats that can be kept till the next one kicks off and it goes to a new set of winners.

    Thought it could be used to motivate people to not only just play Comp MM, but a little tidbit that could push people to try and better themselves for potential fun.

    Never finished the concept though, got distracted and finally thought it was a fool errand to even try so I stopped lol. Not only that, but if it went via ranked you'd need like what, 20 different types of crowns per rank and thought it'd be a lot of over kill to try and make so many options lol.

    It feels like every update at this point breaks the game for OS X/Linux (reportedly) players. I really don't want to buy a new PC just to play TF2 (especially when I get around 100 frames with my current computer), but I might have to at this rate...
