Well, Valve, you really outdid yourself this time.
Guess you've never heard of a little thing I like to call CLASS UNIQUENESS.
Or even RUDEMENTARY GAME BALANCE.
And maybe you could remember that this game was not designed for 11 year olds, SO STOP CHANGING IT SO THEY'LL LIKE IT.
I liked to describe "old/vanilla" TF2 as "delightfully silly". It was a serious game with a hillarious top layer that made it a joy to play. Apparently Most people dont get black humor, though.
So what happens? Not only do we get an entire pile of CAKEY THE CAKE FROM OUTER SPACE retarded "updates" that, nearly without fail, make the game some sick cross between CoD4 and Peggle, but we also lose the "delightfully silly" aspect of the game we bought. The new voicepacks are apparently inspired from Warhammer 40k, judging from the sheer amount of GRIMDARK dripping from the lines. They're not witty, they're not silly, they're just a bunch of rude guys shooting at eachother now.
What is this?
Where did the originality go?
Where did the wit run off to?
Why did the cleverness vanish?
Why did something so GOOD have to be tainted by moronic employees who want to screw around with a captive audience?
Why cant we have EVEN AN OPTION to play the game we bought? I certainly would not buy the game in the state it is today.
If you wanted $20 beta testers, you could have at least told us before we fell in love with the game.
