    Too much offtopic crap, AFAIK.

    Speaking of which, I have heard rumors that the Force of Nature crits from behind always. But only has two shells or something.

    Basically the way this thread is heading... Already.

    But seriously each time a new update comes out I get the mood to play, but then it slowly dies when I get into a server and get thoroughly crushed by everyone.

    Games completed recently: Dead Island: Riptide, Batman: Arkham Origins, StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty, Dragon's Crown

    Today's stuff doesn't look that interesting. I like fastlane, and I'd like to see fastlane not be retardedly hard for the team that doesn't cap the first point, and Egypt looks ok.

    I like that they're admitted that the shotgun gives you super recoil, but I just want to see what the shottie unlock is

    Hey guys, what do you think about the new scattergun?

    Apparently it makes the scout able to "ascend"...

    It's the bible-cannon. You mayst use yonder cannon to smote thy enemies, or thoust may shoot at oneself, as Jesus did, and ascend to the Land on High.

    I was pretty ticked off aswell. So now we have one slot (one of the two is taken by the main gun) for either a "Meet the", a new map or a new gametype/map. While a new "Meet the" would be nice, I would rather see a new game type, and have them release the "Meet the" either on its own or during the next class update.

    Now, I would be really pissed if it was another "Here is some comunity maps! Have fun!". God that would be terrible.

    mmm hmm, I think its going to be the new payload map we saw in the back of the Bonk! update, and they might try to pass it off as a new game type, but i doubt it...

    what?!!! C'mon "Classes with the ability to ascend rapidly (Soldiers, Demomen, and Scouts using the new scattergun unlockable " sounds great. The new scout gun is some kind of shotgun jump thingy. Hilarity.

    I don't think double payload is the new game mode. Robin Walker said in the interview:
    A new Payload map is in the works, more community maps are on the way and the team will soon unveil a very different new game mode.

    This must be the Payload map, and while a race to the finish is cool I would hardly call it "very different."

    the new shotgun. The Force of Nature. Or maybe it's a new shotgun and the ability it has is called the Force of Nature, but anyway, there's a new shotgun, I would wager.

    The force-a-nature looks like a saw to me. Of course, that doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Im thinking about getting a server guys, it would be located in the united kingdom. does anybody know if there are any deals going on atm etc?

    as for why? I'm bored of god awful lag, I enjoy both custom and normal maps so would like to have the best of both worlds *cough* Garbage Day & Badwater *Cough*, and I want to be able to slay Rak when he blows me up.

    Probably getting the first kill will give a buff. It won't need to bee when you get the achievement , because that would be insane.

    Probably the first kill in arena, since that's what First Blood is for.

    Egypt looks really fun, but I hope they put the best map first since I usually play on 24/7 Dustbowl server and 23/6 of the time its the first map, when the 3rd is the best.
