  1. In case you didn't know, Valve is currently working on a major summer update for Team Fortress 2. The update will definitely include a competitive mode, as Jill, a member of the TF2 development team announced the final Stress Test, which ended a few days ago. So it looks like Competitive is almost ready for release. We can anticipate 4 new taunts as well, as the TF2 taunt playlist was updated with 4 new taunts. We can also expect MAJOR balance changes as well, in order to accommodate for the new matchmaking mode. It's also likely that we'll see new skins, and new contracts. For a full review of everything we know about this "neato" update, here's a great video from VNN:
  2. My reaction: Download it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/steam/9nblggh4x7gm
  3. It's happening again https://scrap.tf/raffles/FW942B
  4. Flash raffles start, and then immediately end. It says they started 2 hours ago, despite the fact that they're only 30 minutes long. Here's the raffle link (https://scrap.tf/raffles/OP245G) as well as screenshots. I have seen this happen a couple of times before. I've also noticed they aren't occurring as frequently. Is that a bug or is it intentional?
  5. I agree. I'm not accepting or the buff, I attempted to explain it. I think it needs to be nerfed as well. And it will be. Even Uncle Dane agrees:
  6. This is probably one of the most talked about changes to a weapon in TF2. It seems like a dumb idea to most people, but here's what I think. Competitive matchmaking is the next step of evolution for TF2. There are multiple game files that have been added since the last update, and they all point to competitive. A competitive mode would make Team Fortress a viable alternative for those who aren't interested in CS:GO, or gave it up. I think that Valve has a list in their backend of all weapons and how many people use them. From Valve's point of view, weapons that get used the most get nerfed (most likely because they're broken, and people overuse/abuse them). For example, the Jag was a very popular wrench, so Valve nerfed it, thinking it was too strong against other classes. I was pretty upset about the nerf against the Jag, but I could definitely see why Valve made the changes they did. The same goes for several of the other changes. Now, on to the Phlogistinator. The Phlog was a challenge. What should be done for this weapon? Nerf it? From Valve's view, I don't think they could find a way to balance it so it's equivalent to all other flamethrowers and not annoying to play against. Make a slower walk speed? Just equip the Powerjack, and it's eliminated. Increase the damage penalty? That only slows the inevitable "Mmph" mode. And with comp coming, how could they adjust this weapon? From their backend, they saw it wasn't as used as the Degreaser (which, by the way, got nerfed), so it has to be made stronger. Or else, they must've thought, no one would use it in comp mode. And that would present a balance challenge. I think Valve wants every weapon to have around the same amount of players using it. Another thought that I had was maybe this is just a test run for the Phlog. I think they want to examine how players use it in pubs and in sixes, highlander, etc. Then, maybe they'll adjust it in a future update, according to the data they've collected. Do you guys agree with my theory? Let me know it a reply below!

      Ocean Drive is a cool song to

      In fact, Turbulence was a good album

      Totally agree! Miami Nights 1984 is one of my favorite artists :wub:

  7. I have an idea for next year's Secret Santa. What if before you entered the event, you have to make a minimum deposit of 1 Refined. This way, everyone gets something (even if it's only 1 Ref). No Greedy Grinches, everyone wins.
  8. Wouldn't that be theft? If you didn't send a gift, there's nothing to take. And besides, the user who didn't send a gift would need to confirm a trade, it can't automatically be taken away.
  9. Whenever I try to enter the Flash Raffle, I get this error: "This raffle is for members of this Steam Group only." I am a member of the Steam group.
  10. I wanted to incinerate some crates, but the bot is returning a 500 server error.
  11. This is the wrong place to post. If you are experiencing an issue, post here and not on the forums: https://github.com/Jessecar96/SteamDesktopAuthenticator/issues
  12. First, this post is in the wrong section. It should be under the Secret Santa/Holiday Event megathread. Please be more careful before posting.\ Second, it may take a little time before items start appearing. It does that in order to confirm the items. Just wait a little longer and they'll appear.
