GG Valve.
I have stopped playing for now.

It's just STUPID going into a TEAM Fortress server and trying to complete objectives with 7 snipers and 6 spies. No engineers, medics or pyros or heavies to assist.

Valve should never have dropped 2 updates together. They KNOW that all the teams get unbalanced everytime there is an update like this. The spy is definitely the most overpowered class now while others like the soldiers and demos are being crippled further.

Meh, just not very impressed at the moment. Maybe if they actually bothered to fix the facestab and left it fixed instead of diddling with it every other weak and making it worse and worse.

Sazar the only one of our server without class limits is the arena. If you wanna play on a decent one add me as a friend. I am in the NVN group under swerver.

@ Capt they just are just randomly found by a random player. Usually two people find something each map. It really sucks.

Was playing with a friend last night and he got TWO huntsman bows within about 20 minutes... I still have nothing. I seriously hate this system. The achievement milestone system had its flaws, but at least it wasn't freaking based on luck.

Just a message saying you "found" a weapon, and it happens completely randomly. Hell, you could sit idle in a server for hours and "find" unlocks.

Actually it gets dumber. I was playing with him more just now and he got a third bow. I am still sitting here with my thumb up my anus waiting to get just one new weapon.

And also, just before I quit playing today I saw a spectator get the Cloak and Dagger... that is awesome since I have been playing on that same server for hours but get nothing.

Oh and I also love that I own the game, but people who are just on the free trial are getting more stuff than me. This system is WAY worse than that milestone system.

The only way unlocks make sense in a game like this is if you earn them through XP, which you gain from kills and wins, like in Call of Duty.

If they aren't going to institute an XP/level system, they should just have you pick your loadout at the start without any unlock silliness.

That said, I don't really play this game, and thus shouldn't even have an opinion.

I don't really get it, obviously this is meant to appeal to new players or something but I don't think the system is very good. Something like COD 4 like NarcissistZero says is damn sight better than this crap, sure you need to play a bit to get unlocks but it's fair, consistent and I don't really notice achievement farming in COD 4, achievement farming use to pop up every new achievement unlock pack. now they stopped that they make IDLE servers for people to just sit and get unlocks. Valve have not succeeded -1 points.

Oh yeah and playing with 6 snipers is so dumb.

Agreed... the COD4/W@W unlock system would be better than what we have had in the past, but the milestone system was better than this new random drop crap, because at least you had to play and you could actually earn them. As it is now, you don't earn them, you just get them for doing nothing except being on a server. Not even playing in it.

I think it should be like BF2142 where the more points you accumulate in a server the more points you can use for temporary unlocks while you are still in the server. Then if you unlock through the achievement system you get to keep that unlock.

The achievements initially started off as a good plan. But the last couple of them have been a little unbalanced and now we have to wait till they balance it all over again

However, because I still love TF2, I will start playing again once the farming is done

Unfortunately, I'll lose my spot in the server ranking
