We're only a few days away from this year's Halloween shenanigans, whatever they may be, but I've been so far out of the loop with this job stuff that I didn't even notice they've had all the past Halloween stuff enabled for a week now. Anyone been getting some playtime in?

And we're live! Merasmus and Doomsday and bumper cars and I don't even know what else. My freebie gift cauldron had a Strange Haunted hat in it, which I guess is good, but I don't even know. Hope to see everyone in there tomorrow night!

Cauldrons always have one Strange Haunted item with counters on it that only work on the new map. Or so I think... both of mine had one at any rate (one all-class, one Medic).

Speaking of which, you can also get a second cauldron by doing the Carnival Of Carnage: Bumper To Bumper To Bumper achievement... and a Necro Smasher all-class-except-Spy melee weapon for doing Carnival Of Carnage: Step Right Up (which requires 4 achievements).

These achievements were so easy, I did almost all of them all in one night.

At the moment, Windows servers seem to be having some issues. Not sure if it's because of SourceMod or not, but hit registration seems to be all over the place. My Linux Halloween server seems to be unaffected, but it also has SourceMod disabled because I expected major issues like previous years.

Incidentally, there are some new SourceMod builds which may fix some things.

Well the few times I've tried playing this new map, I've almost immediately crashed when getting to the bumper car funtimes. Makes it kinda hard to work on achievements when you can't even play the relevant part.

(Also where is everybody?)

Game's still crashing every single time the bumper cars fire up, so I haven't managed a single achievement. This is usually the most fun gaming time of the year, but it's been a total wash. :(

The update seems like a major bust...the map was cut out because it was "too complex," and the only new weapon's a stock melee reskin. Oh, and you can pay money to collect ducks! Really not impressed with what Valve did here.

New weapons? (Presumably) sane Demo rebalancing? A whole new gamemode? An actually-legit CTF variant? GRAPPLING HOOKS?!?

Okay let's get our butts in-game tonite and do things.

Edit: Oh sweet, and craftable Giftapults too. Hope random anonymous people enjoy getting a dupe hat and untradeable Halloween costumes!

So apparently Snowplow is "too complex for new players", gets cut from its own update, alright. I don't agree, but it's your game so fine. Then two weeks later,

gets pushed to beta?

All of my wat, Valve.

I figured Valve lied about the reason they didn't add Snowplow.

...its really because Snowplow is a terrible map.

cp_snowplow does give you additional time when you capture points. Pop quiz: How much time does it give you?

*plays Jeopardy theme*

Give up? Well, the correct answer is... it depends. It appears to remove 10% from the train destruction bar and resets the current timer. Which means it adds 30-60 seconds to the timer depending on what the current timer had.

Did I mention A/D CP and PL maps traditionally add 300 seconds to the clock for a point capture?

Anyway, the train destruction mechanic seems to be a fancy/broken version of the standard CP timer system. I say broken because it randomly disappears from the stock HUD and the time added doesn't seem to be correct... 30-60 seconds is way too short an amount of time to add.

Incidentally, why has no one reported the Beggar's Bazooka bug shown in that video to Valve?

A special congratulations to our OCR Highlander team (#Town). Last night was night one of the new season and they won.

Additionally, I have recently made a post on the OCRTF2 group about a possible revival of weekly TF2 nights. Be sure to read it!

Link

Sometime ago TF2 OCR community's past, we all once enjoyed one another's company in weekly gatherings on our OCR TF2 server. Unfortunately, time makes fools of us all, and due to various circumstances and obligations, our weekly gatherings grew less frequent until it was no longer routine.

Though we have long since stopped our weekly TF2 tradition, the OCR community has been tight knit and we have stuck together. Not long ago, our community of regulars were able to come together and form a competitive highlander TF2 team--and already are 1-0 (Congratulations on the victory #Town!).

In addition to the team, I have spoken to some community members elsewhere from OCR, and have gathered that there is interest in reviving our old tradition of a weekly TF2 game night. Because of this, I am now looking into doing so, and would like input and feedback from all of you!

If you are interested, please provide response to the following:

  • Which evening is better for you? Friday or Saturday?
  • Of your chosen day, what timeframe will work best? Be sure to include a timezone in your respnose!
  • Are there any new maps on the server you would like to see?
  • Are there any special events or activites that you would like to see?

If you are interested in restarting the tradition, let us know here or at the community forum over at http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=39889

( Even if you have no preference to the above questions, be sure to post regardless! We'd love to hear from everyone! )

Congrats, HashTown!

I'd like to see TF2 happen more often (I was otherwise occupied when I got like ten invitations the other day). Friday or Saturday work fine for me, because I don't ever leave the house. Late evening (~9-11p EST) seems to be what we had going on before, so I see no reason to change it.

I once team fortressed. It was a long time ago... I think I was in Burma at the time.

My time occupation slots are weird, so I can't really gt on just randomly. Would be fun to hop in at some point though. give me a shout out at some point when a couple people are on and I'll join up :D

I'm totally down for getting a weekly thing going again. As for whether Friday or Saturday is better... I travel for a living, so I'm not-infrequently on an airplane on Friday nights. On the other hand, I have other stuff I do with other people on Saturday nights. So on Fridays, I'm either there or not, while on Saturdays, I can consistently be semi-sorta-half-there as I alt-tab between windows.

I guess if I had to pick one, I'd prefer Fridays. Sometimes I won't be able to make it, but I'd rather be able to devote my full attention to it when I can be there rather than be distracted even when I am there.
