Did you guys think TF2 needed more Capture-the-Flag?

Robin Walker: The way we came up with the maps initially with TF2, we looked at what maps were being played on Team Fortress Classic. We ranked them in order, we knew we had time to do six of them - and out of the top six, the only CTF map was 2fort.

Johnson: Even with a small number of items, your playing time is going to be the limiting factor, you're just not going to be able to get them all. One of the new Medic achievements is to heal ten million points - that's like three months of pretty intense healing.

Isn't that a lie though? Wasn't well originally CTF? Been forever since I played TFC... but I could have swore it was CTF...

Ok, so there IS going to be an Overhealer unlock? I thought I read elsewhere that they axed that idea.

No, at the bottom of the interview, there is an update announcement stating the overhealer got the axe.

one thing that continues to baffle me about the TF world, is the absence of a "the rock" remake. I playd this map constantly.. more then 2fort! The act of bringing a key from one side of the enemies base to the other and having it gas everyone in the base except the key guy (unless a friendly stepped into the control room for a little revenge) is classic! The spotlight, that would out spys. The underground tunnel. rocket and pipe jumping onto the upper reaches.

I cry myself to sleep some nights missing that map.

Well and Badlands were both CTF. They shouldn't have changed them. Or at the very least they should have named them differently.

So their solution to the totally borked facestab problem is to... make a weapon out of it? Nice one Valve.

The unlockable medigun will switches out the 10 second invulnerability effect for 10 seconds of 100% chance of critical hits.

You unlock the first Medic unlockable when you complete 12 of the 36 Medic achievements, the second at 24, and the third at 36.

Goldrush is coming along with the Medic achievements and unlockable weaponry.

The cart in Goldrush moves faster the more Blu players are near it, and contains a handy dispenser to heal and resupply them as they escort it. The Red team wins if they can keep the cart from reaching their base.

Goldrush is the first map to use the cinematic physics technology from Half-Life 2: Episode 2 in a multiplayer environment


I like the 100% critical-uber. Release it already! :captnkill:

Oh god... 100% critical???

Sounds scary.

I wish they would just drop the random crits all together and just use the 100% critical thing with the new med gun. :o

BTW, the game is going to be completely broken for the first few weeks after this update. Everyone will be playing as medics to get the achievements.

That's the one thing I hate about achievements though... for most players they take priority over actually playing the game correctly. Hopefully they are all useful and don't involve teabagging the corpses of dead team mates (Shadowrun).

I've played on a server that's all crits all the time. It's not too bad. This sounds like the perfect thing for breaking truly stubborn defenses - get 100% crits from one medic and an uber from another... Mmm mmm good!

I hope they release it this week. Also, I think they will release more unlocks for other classes as well. :)
