LOL. I just posted this in the TF2 section because none of you editors were online.

I checked Steam, and I swear I didn't see your name unless I don't have you on Steam.

WTF is RPS Chat? :p

Sweet. Which two user-created maps? I'd guess, offhand, that at least one of them will be Redstone... but we'll see.

Ugh. My steam won't allow me to connect. It keeps giving me connection error, and yet, not one thing changed in the 5 minutes it stopped working.

WTF? :(

Hmm. Might be working now.

I still can't wait for the update! I <3 the Pyro.

Alrighty, after having a pleasant few rounds on a great server.

I can say that I'm now a lot more optimistic about the update.
Playing as the Pyro is so fun.

I don't really need another excuse to play pyro, but this certainly won't discourage me. Maybe I'll play it on offense instead of just defense now.

This is likely a stupid question, but will you have to start over regarding the new pyro achievements or is it possible to have some of them as soon as the update is released? For example, if one of the new achievements is 'kill 20 medics with the axe', if I've killed 12 before, will I have to kill 20 more? I imagine it works the same as the medic, but I rarely played medic before the unlockables so I wasn't sure how it worked.

I anticipated user-created maps coming out officially, but not this soon! I also anticipated the Pyro coming out soon, but not this soon! And by gum, it's dated! My hype has just hit the roof!!

Oh fuck, I have work to do this week.

Shitting hell.

FURTHERMORE in addition to my extreme excitement over the Pyro, I'd like to point out that I have a crush on the Sniper. Which just makes everything BETTER.

Just to clarify this information from RPS is taken from a press release Doug Lombardi sent out at the same time, so this news should have been taken from the original source rather than third party. To conclude this is legimate information still, and we will see Meet the Sniper later today.

I still have a raging hard on Stern, no matter what you do to keep it at bay.
