Halloween Event = $$$. New stages aren't too bad, and chasing down/dodging the Horseless Headless Horseman is pretty fun, but I can't seem to find the damn gift box before everyone else. Watched the same guy grab 3 in a row earlier.

I want a dang Ghastly Gibus. Anyone got one and feel like being dominated a lil bit?

Check your backpack, same happened to me but it was there.

Also I don't really like the map, it seems too balanced in favour of the defending team. And sort of feels like it wasn't very well thought out, but then again it was a community made map so go figure...

I did check. No dice. It lists Sleepy HallOWNED on my "Recently Earned Achievements", but when I go to the Halloween Event achievement list, it is no longer highlighted as earned (it was yesterday).

Re-killed him 5 times before I got Sleepy HallOWNED again (it shows up in my recent achievements twice lol) and managed to get "Gored". Still lookin for the gift box though. Admin /kill me (as well as everyone else one by one) the time I found it...

Had tons of fun playing on the new map tonight. The boss is crazy, adds a level of chaos not yet really seen in TF2. I don't think I'd like things like this all the time (can really screw up a defense, etc) but for a few weeks it should be a blast.

On the achievement note, both the boss ones are really easy. All my friends and I got em within one or two boss spawns. The gift boxes kinda suck for being so random, but eh, once again, it adds a little chaos to the game.

A highlight for me tonight was that on my favorite server, the admin spawned like 15 bosses. It was just complete insanity.
