    Actually, in this one, BLU Heavy and Soldier are covertly following the RED Pyro, filming it, trying to win this year's Saxxies.

    End scene: As the pair watches the Pyro from afar, it becomes clear they've seen something shocking and/or revealing, with sudden "Ohhhh...now it makes sense." clarity. As they turn to leave, the Pyro is suddenly behind them. Fwoosh ensues. Outro flourish.
    Remember Meet the Pyro was made a long time ago, so there is no way they could've had the saxxy idea way back then

    No, they made Meet the Pyro a long time ago, then TF2 changed drastically, so they remade it and finished it last month.

    They also had MtP almost finished before they started working on MtM, they just wanted to show pyro as the last class of the MtT videos

    stop saying this.

    They only had the plot done, and they did not actually start making it.

    I recall them saying "We've had 'Meet the Pyro' done for a while, we just want to leave it as the last of the 'Meet the Team' series"

    Hopefully they'll keep the tradition in Meet the Pyro, where BLU Heavy and Soldier always die.
    In mtm, no blu heavies could be seen. I guess they made up for it by killing an army's worth of blu soldiers. Maybe mtp will take place at the annual blu crippled deaf blind and mute heavies with cancer and bone-itis convention?

    This week, May is finally upon us.

    The Replay Update debuted on, what?, May 5th? It'll sure be interesting to see how Valve juggles things this year what with the Saxxy Awards undoubtedly beginning around the same time, Portal 2's major update being unleashed in two weeks' time, and the beginning of Month 4 (or is it 5?) of the teeth-gnashingly long Great TF2 Update Drought of 2012.

    But I tell you what: my money's on something big happening in the last two weeks of May. Because that's when I'll be out of the country and at the mercy of foreign hotel wifi.

    half a year without a major update: this is what will happen on may 15th if valve doesn't come up with something.

    We only got one weapon since last december, and, arguably, it wasn't good, let alone game-changing.

    Yeah, something is up. It is kinda pathetic how it seems to have been abandoned. I can straight up tell you that the update, other than Meet The Pyro, will be disappointing. It will have the same monetized bullshit like Christmas, and they're not going to care.

    I started playing TF2 last May, I saw the update history, and saw the uber update come in the middle of the exams. I started to enjoy the summer, and saw new weapons in July and August, and, seeing how the past went, expected a nice year with new content.

    Nothing big for 11 months now. Tweaks in the Manniversary, and a shitton of hats I don't care about. But nothing major.

    I don't care about DOTA. I want a good major update, and community contrib updates, rather that having "the hat of the week". I want maps and weapons. I have high expectatives for the upcoming update, after 3 months of being promised an awesome year.

    I can't get over that "This year will be huge for TF2".

    Not a single notable update for five months into the year.

    ...but yea. Slow year for TF2, which is funny considering the F2P nature of the game pretty much requires lots of good, large content updates.

    I said this before, its mostly true that most of the beta players or players from a year later are basically done with this game or only play competitive.
    Or trade. So the new players have so much content and collectibles they probably want to buy, craft, or trade for. Its the old players that require the large content updates.

    it's even sad we haven't even had any interesting promos.

    Last year we had 2 promos that added a handful of weapons with stats (Rift + Shogun), by this time last year, plus the MNC stuff which was interesting (well, the socks were).
    This year we had rootkits, pay to win games, some medieval helmets and a robot backpack. Oh and a lady's wig for Soldier.

    We even had 4 new maps by this time (3 community + KOTH_Badlands)...
    Oh and a bunch of hats that took a dangerous amount of time to start randomly dropping, and the Cozy Camper, a leftover from Christmas.

    Valve better not release this on the same day as The Avengers.
    The Avengers will win.

    Luckily, I assume they'll do something the day afterwards.

    I say we still all try for a Saxxy, as in, Facepunch's TF2 playerbase as a whole. Could saturate the forums with an absolute shit ton of Saxxies.

    Just realised, holy shit, Replay Update was one of the best updates for hats so far (as far as quality goes).

    We got the Team Captain, Conoisseur's Cap, Villain's Veil, Crocleather Slouch, Western Wear, Large Luchadore...

    No heavies die in Meet the Sandvich or Meet the Medic

    Debatedly no soldiers die in Meet the Soldier unless you count the implied offscreen kills he would need to get the blue helmets

    I think it's all coincidence, nearly all other classes usually die in Meet the videos.

    Worst part is, there's a 50% chance you won't even see the new gamemode this month.
    Because Saxxy.

    In all honesty, Valve packing up Meet The Pyro + Saxxy Awards + a new gamemode + new items in the same update is impossible.

    I have this horrible feeling that they aren't going to be pairing MtP with the Saxxy Awards. Maybe because of last year. I dunno, I just can't bring myself to get excited about the event at all.

    The Saxxy Update in 2011 was mainly about the introduction of a new feature. This year it would have to bring in a new feature again if it was going to be a big thing on its own. The event was there to promote the feature. Not vice versa.

    I actually don't want MtP to be paired with the Saxxys.

    It just seems like a bit of overload.

    Get one thing out of the way first, then focus on the other.

    If it were up to me, I'd release the MtP update, Raid Mode, Source Filmmaker, and announce the Saxxys at the same time.

    This gives everyone a lot of new toys to make videos out of, then once the Saxxy awards show up, release an additional big update with new sets and whatnot, maybe a map or two.

    Well if they are going to put in source filmmaker for the gimmick of this year's Saxxies, they are going to have to get Meet the Pyro out of the way, and the Saxxy anniversary is technically this week.

    looking back at the 3 "new" gamemodes they made since release, it's probably going to be CTF with a control point slapped on it.
