    What if the numbers are letters? 19 = S; 6 = F, 1 = A, 13 = M, 22 = V, 13 = M and 12 = L
    SFAMVML
    LSFAMVM

    Wait, Roman Numbers?

    MM = 2000
    V = 5
    L = 50
    50___2005?

    is that texture unique to Foundry? Might have just been an old wall texture that's used elsewhere we never noticed because it wasn't in a spooky locked room

    They're overlays, textures that can be placed on any wall/texture. They're there for a reason.

    Following things are linked together imo.
    Secret project described in project + TOBOR hints and clues + Hints and clues about Raid mode.

    The robots are probably what you get to crush in raid mode.

    Why would Valve make a DotA mode in TF2 when they already have Dota 2 ?

    Because it wouldn't be exactly the same.

    Something akin to it could be enough of a twist in gameplay mechanics that it could breathe a whole load of new life into the game, more than any new map in an existing gamemode or major update could.

    Also the blog post doesn't really tell us anything new. Unless the surprises are not a new game mode or a big fix-it update.

    There's evidence of the schema update being tested internally, beta balance changes and revamped scout set stuff. Big is probably a bit generous, but the evidence makes it at least a possibility.

    Because TF2 Raid Mode is the real DOTA2 beta and Valve have secretly been working on DOTA2 since 2007.

       I'm kidding, in case you didn't notice. I highly doubt that, though.

    we know these right from Valve and workshop comments. They're even in the OP...

    That would be a nice visually different map if it was a burning version of 2fort or something

    5:41 PM - ned_ballad: woah woah
    5:41 PM - ned_ballad: what if
    5:41 PM - ned_ballad: they set EVERY MAP ON FIRE
    5:41 PM - [FAUCᴱT] Psychopath: FIRE
    5:41 PM - ned_ballad: like they added doves
    5:41 PM - [FAUCᴱT] Psychopath: even the snow ones
    5:41 PM - [FAUCᴱT] Psychopath: snow fire
    5:42 PM - [FAUCᴱT] Psychopath: makes perfect sense
    5:42 PM - ned_ballad: especially them
    5:42 PM - ned_ballad: and sawmill
    5:42 PM - ned_ballad: it has to be burning on sawmill with rain and water everywhere

    I think it looks like where Radigan Conagher lived in the Loose Canon comic.

    If it was expanded on, of course.

    Everyone also seems to forget that one part of Meet the Sniper where he demoman stabs his eye out. That's also probably not getting in.

    Also, it's gotta be a new location, none of the other maps have a belltower like that photo does.

    We will get the Source Filmmaker and Saxxy Awards 2012 involve it. I mean, just read this quote I took from the blog post:
    This year, expect the Saxxys to be much bigger and better, due to the imminent unveiling of another secret.
    They said they will relase it when all classes are "met", and soon they will be. I don't know what to think about this since it means I will not have any chances to win (and pretty much everyone else shares the same fate) and Saxxy awards will be just another contest dominated by the big names of Internet.

    So the another secret better be Raid mode.

    That's kinda funny because I remember joking about how Pyro is Engineer's brother a long time ago. Think about it, they are the two shortest classes in the game, both have their eyes completely obscured, they wear similar-looking gloves, both like barbecues, one of the Pyro achievements is named "Makin' Bacon", which is an Engineer line and also Respectless Rubber Glove. Maybe they really are strongly related to each other in some way.

    The engineer is the only class we've seen the pyro interact with thus far in any of the comics, I think you're on to something.

    Also it seems implied Meet the Pyro will come well before the Saxxys, which is promising.

    well the way everything seem to be in order.
    Hidden secret.
    Workshop - DONE
    Meet the Pyro
    Saxxy

    So if they go in this order we could get meet the Pyro in maybe a month or two.
