Discussion: a big community update
Hey guys,

It's been a long time since TF2 had a big update, isn't it? I've heard (or read in the chat) people who would like an update with more weapons rather than new hats and cosmetic items.

Personally, I've been playing a lot gamemodes created by the community (such as VS. Saxton Hale, Deathrun, etc.). It amazed me the originality of having a fight between the mercs and their boss, but it also made me sad that Hale's model and maps are outdated.

Remember the community update called "Robotic boogaloo" in which every hat now has a robotic version? (most of them bad, in my opinion) Now, Valve is working along with the developers of the "End of the Line" to make another community update (at least, that's what I heard).

Well, then, my idea is: wouldn't it be nice if Valve also worked with experienced members of the workshop to add weapons and an OFFICIAL Saxton Hale mode?

Tell me your opinions about this and, if you like my idea, what name should that update have? (I think it should be "The Tight Pants Update", though it sounds a bit weird).

Constructive criticism is very welcomed! :)

See you.

NOTE: Do you like the idea? Spread the word around the world! :D

We always need more real content instead of more ♥♥♥♥♥♥ hats, because aside from a few gems every update (bird heads, I'm looking at you) it's all just more crap accessories in a game already chock-full of crap accessories. We need new weapons, Valve, we need new maps and new gamemodes. I do realize it takes time to make them and balance them correctly but that's what the TF2 Beta is for, right??????

♥♥♥♥ hats, I want a Strange Sharp Dresser already :D

Yes, it would be nice.
People on TF2 are way too much focused on Hats and other esthetic items, instead of the weapons.
This game needs more guns and original weapons.
We need to get off the Hat-N-Misc thing a bit and focus on the other side of TF2: The Practical One.

I think that having Vs. Saxton Hale as a gamemode would b ean awesome idea! THe gamemode continues to draw more players to it. Enough people do play it for it to become one. People have also been arguing on how much they want new weapons and/or hats. Valve seems as though they just throw some random crap of hats at us that probably took them seconds to make. If they do wanna give us more hats....... at least make them awesome! Some items people post on the workshop are of excellent quality, and I think some of these should be added from the number of voted they have. (This goes for weapons too) For the weapons, it would be cool if Valve could just make the weapon stats but use the skin that was created by the user!

I believe they are working on solving these things with End of the Line. It is just what you said, an update made by cooperation of Valve and community
But it may want another update to get Saxton Hale mode into the game. Well, it might be a good idea. I might like it, althought I've never played it.

Some say He can build a sentry gun, Others say he solves practical problems. All we know is. HE'S CALLED THE ENGINEER.

Ok Jokes aside. This game really DOES need new weapons. and not like last time where only 3 were added. ( Vaccinator, Loose cannon, Rescue ranger. I'm looking at you )

End of the Line update is mainly about the film.
Wich i'm exited about. The update itself is to give it epic release.

I actually think those weps are well balanced and, as all TF2 weps, their usefulness depend on the situation. (rescue ranger is very damn useful at MvM)

All right Valve, let's just add some 12 imbalanced weapons into the game and community will be happy. Well, it doesn't work that way. The trouble with adding new weapons is that you have to balance them a make new interesting stats for them. I'd rather see more official maps and quality gamemodes.

Theres no need for that. Valve have had a very long time to add weapons to closed beta servers and balance them before releasing. It has been too long since a weapon update.

Also I dont know where you got "12" imbalanced weapons from. Last time i checked there was only 9 mercs.

is being made into a TF2 update. No new hats, just weapons, maps, taunts, and other magical crap.
Hopefully even that Seven Nation Army remix :3

That was just overstimating. And why there couldn't be more weapons for the same class in one update btw? Also I'm not talking about concrete case, I'm talking about rushed weapon designs not paying off generally. And don't forget that even though you can have weapons in closed beta, it still doesn't means that there are enough balanced weapons ready to be officially released.
