Just a shout to let everyone know team fortress 2 is available for download on steam. I scored a black box from a friend and activated it and I noticed today that it was available for download.

How did you get a black box when they were canceled long ago?

why must people insist on telling us what they are downloading? did I miss some period of time where is was a constantly asked question?

anyways.. since I see no signs of a black box version going to be around..I got the orange box. playd tf2 for the past hour or so and really liking it. 2fort4 bringing back the memories. The only 2 things I didn't like, the heavy is overpowered. Its gun is fairly powerfull.. but that combined with the fact that it can take so much damage and moves at a good pace makes him a good offensive bugger. The problem is, the heavy was never MENT for offense. Hes ment to defend the base. The offensive slugger is the demo/soldier.

Oh yea, WTF are the grenades?!?! How could they omit those??? The nail grenade, demo pack and mirv are half the classes arsenal. I can guarentee you that will be mod #1. stupid valve. ^^

Now to pawn off these other 2 keys.(lee63)

A heavy is a good unit, but a good team has no problems dealing with it. It's only the bad teams that allow a Heavy to rape.

The reason grenades are out is because of spamming morons.

Valve isn't stupid for not catering to your idea of proper gameplay. Their game is fabulous and very fun.

The main purpose of a beta like this is for gameplay balancing, I am sure you will see many changes in regards to weapons, etc.

I fixed it for you. theres a reason grenades are still in the previous TF incarnations... people like them and they work well.

And yes, they are spam, its called suppressive fire, and it is a valid tactic.

If we don't tell you we are downloading client, then how will you know we are downloading? Duh.

I loved conc grenades with the medic. That was my favorite thing to do in big maps, just double/tripple conc all over the place while infecting people. :D

It's still just as easy to do that without concs, but concs make it so much more fun.

medic is broken atm... allthough its life stream is farly usefull, it seems valve has gotten bit by the error of thine mmorpg ways. That is to say, the cleric/priest class whos majority capabilities is to straight up heal, while giving pathetic offensive capabilities. This makes them extremely powerful if you are running a small controlled squad, but a freelance medic is going to find himself dead quickly. Thus the medic is nothing more then a heal bot, with no alternative fun means to switch off too when he is not healing. No fun, no one plays them.
