Today the Steampipe Update goes live, what do you hope to see?
So according to Valve, today is the big day that Steampipe goes live for all TF2 users. Granted that isn't a big deal for those of us who've already converted to the Beta, but obviously it is going to be accompanied by an update that at the very least should add Robo-Crate Keys.

However, since this is SPUD and we all LOVE to speculate and hopelessly over-hype every single update, let's get this show on the road, shall we?
What do you hope to appear in tonight's update?

For me, I'd like to see the patch notes go a little something like this...

- Added new Maps, koth_lecture_valley and pl_morrigan_alley
- Added new MvM Missions Medieval Massacre and Mann Co Strikes Back
- Added new Medieval [1] and Uranium Botkiller Weapons [2]
- Added Robo-Crate Key to the Mann Co Store
- Mann Co Supply Crate Keys and Robo-Keys are now on sale for 99¢
- Added new Engineer PDA, Medieval Blueprints
- Moved Pip-Boy to the PDA Slot
- Added new Pyro secondary, Pyromancer's Spellbook
- Added new Spy PDA, Prop Disguise Kit
- Robo-Sandvich can now be token-crafted
- Buffalo Steak Sandvich now increases firing speed by 20%
- Half-Zatoichi can no longer gain random critical Hits
- Splendid Screen now only grants Crits on a full charge
- Homewrecker's damage bonus to buildings now applies to Tanks
- Neon Annihilator now marks Robots for death in MvM
- Removed the Invisibility Watch, Enthusiast's Timepiece, Quäckenbirdt, Cloak And Dagger, and Dead Ringer from the Medieval Mode item whitelist.
- Conniver's Kunai can now be thrown with M2 (Backstabs deal Mini-Crit damage when thrown, deals Bleed on hit, recharges in 6 seconds)
- Added new effect "Eerie Glow" to the Unusual Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker (Same glowing effect as the Boss' Headtaker)
- The Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker can now be equipped by the Pyro (Has the same stats as the Powerjack when equipped by Pyro)
- Added new Medi Guns Upgrade, Ammo Regen to the Upgrade Station
- Added new misc slot item, Cyborg Converter
- Added new animations for all Robot models
- Added new ConVar, mat_disablephong
- Restored ConVar, mat_picmip -10

[1] Three-Rune Blade, Half-Zatoichi, Maul, Eyelander, Robo-Sandvich, Southern Hospitality, Solemn Vow, Shahanshah, Conniver's Kunai

[2] Fan O' War, Righteous Bison, Phlogistinator, Grenade Launcher, Robo-Sandvich, Wrangler, Kritzkrieg, Sydney Sleeper, Dead Ringer

Yes, I have had awhile to think about this, and yes I know most of it isn't going to happen...

SteamPipe is just a new version of the client, not a TF2 update. The conversion of the TF2 files is mandatory to work with the new client. I don't think any content will be added at all.

As I doubt anything will be added..But seeing this

You reminded me of the cruel truth.

I don't think they will sneak anything into the conversion..

I would love to be wrong though..

I'm a bit disappointed that you didn't mention the lemon launcher anywhere.

I'm done with that. If Valve can't see the weapons brilliance, (which it's clear they don't or they would have included it in the Portal 2 Soundtrack Box) then that's their loss.

I just wish it would be released as a mod...

Well, after the conversion to SteamPipe I am just hoping for faster downlods and updates.

lemon launcher will come, just not yet! when you least exspect it :D its how valve works :D

Yeah, I don't think that it will go along with another update. Still, after buying the three other games and getting a taste of Steampipe, I do hope for some things:

-That the conversion doesn't take long (of course, that is pretty much in vain, since the FAQ already points out that it takes longer than an ordinary installation and TF2 isn't exactly a small game).
-That it won't take too much space (again, the FAQ made clear that I shouldn't actually hope for that).
-That loading will be fast (I was actually impressed by how quick the other three games are loading).

Oh, also I hope that it finally begin.

I would love to be able to throw the Conniver's Kunai.

Anyway, look forward to when I can start using Steampipe
