    FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUU

    Then again the whole bow and arrow concept with pinning players to objects would have been kinda overpowering..

    It's most likely caused by the massive overflow of new people that this free weekend caused.

    Yeah, I've never experienced a free weekend raid before because I don't play that often anymore lol.

    EDIT: My bad, steam is going through a maintenance check.

    Well, it happens each and every time and I'm getting really fucking tired of them since all it does is annoy those who already own the game.

    They've changed how to get the new weapons. It doesn't look like it's through achievements anymore. The update is also buggy i.e. game crashes when backstabbing another spy in disguise.

    Wow good way to ruin a game Valve.

    I played for 5 hours and unlocked a gun I already had.

    Other people joined the game, stepped out of the spawn room, then unlocked half the new weapons.

    Anyone wanna buy my STEAM account?

    That's a horrible reason to quit the game. "Oh no I don't have access to the new items immediately this amazingly fun game suddenly sucks and isn't worth it who wants to buy it!?"
    People are really over reacting over the new unlock system, I swear... You can thank all those people who just dicked around in Achievement servers for this.

    Quiting over something like that is just silly, Team Fortress 2 is just as fun to play as earlier with the exception that there are some new weapons in play which you may or may not have.

    I for one got a Huntsman after playing for about 10 minutes after the update was released. After playing 30h more I still haven't received anything else but the Huntsman, not even duplicates. Sure I really think that this new system is awkward and not good at all, but that doesn't stop me from playing.

    I played for maybe 2 hours and I got a Flare Gun, oh well at least I didn't have it yet (not much of a Pyro player). I really want the Huntsman and that jar of piss.
