First we want to appologize for the Lack of News in recent Days. More on why this happened may follow in one of the next News.

Back to business, concerning Team Fortress 2, quite a few new News arrived. There's still no video on Goldrush or the long awaited Meet the Scout one but Valve is still working on optimizing and balancing TF2.

Mit dem aktuellen Update hat Valve wieder einige Käfer erwischt und plattgetreten. Dabei konnte ein Bug gefixed werden, der Raketen und Granaten eine höhere chance auf Crits spendiert hatte. Weiter wurden Turniermodus und Server-Browser verbessert. Alle Änderungen im folgenden Changelog.
With the most recent Update Valve was able to terminate a few more bugs, for example a bug that allowed Rockets and Pipes a higher Crit-Chance then they should've had. And the long awaited Tournament-Mode was added so we can finaly play without Crit without an extra Plugin. The full Changelog is stated below:

  • Removed sv_alltalk from the list of convars that affect custom server tags
  • Fixed Demoman grenades not hurting the shooter if fired at point blank range against a target
  • Fixed critical modifier for explosive weapons (rockets, pipe bombs) increasing critical chance more than intended
  • Fixed Sudden Death "seconds have passed" string not including the amount of seconds that have passed
  • Fixed Internet and Custom tabs in the Server Browser not correctly displaying the server information for servers when going back and forth between the two tabs
  • Updated the URL used for the "Click for more info on custom servers" link on the Custom tab
  • Fixed a crash for a sound channel getting created without wavedata
  • Fixed Setup timer not showing the correct percentage in the circular progress bar
  • Fixed being able to enter a "spectate" command in the client console to join team Spectator when mp_allowspectators is set to 0
  • Fixed SourceTV servers not being displayed in the Spectate tab for servers with custom server tags
  • Fixed servers with maxplayers <= 24 that are running SourceTV having the "increased_maxplayers" tag added for their server
  • Added mp_tournament_restart command to be used with Tournament Mode (mp_tournament). This can be used at any time to return to the "Waiting for Teams" state
  • When a tournament match ends it now returns to the "Waiting for Teams" state

A few Days ago Valve puplished their plans to bring TF2 and Portal as Retail Versions in the Shops, the Price may be a bit high but if this gets even more People to play TF2 we're all for it.
