    Suddenly a hole in my theory.
    Lincoln was 6'4"
    Pyro is not

    Go home everyone, I'm a false prophet


    Edited:

    Unless...
    UNLESS...
    The whole idea is that a bunch of Lincoln robots were created because someone KNEW that Lincoln was going to be assassinated (as evidenced by the Engineer Update page of the revolving seat in Booth's Theatre), and they were sent to pose as the president while the real one was given the third not-dyin' machine, and one of these Robots became the 1850s mercenary, after being rejected as too short, which crushed his little robotic emotions and sent him on a pyrotechnic rampage.


    This conspiracy ain't dead yet folks

    oh yeah and as a side note we'll probably be seeing a Super Monday Night Combat promo later this year

    I hope they add weapons and hats to TF2 this time instead of good costumes in MNC and bad hats in TF2 like last time

    What if the Engineer and Medic got Support's Hair + Goggles
    Highlight was Gabe N and his knife collection.
    I think Gabe was threatening them with his knives.

    Guys, I don't know if this has been stated, but I've been saying this for months before the "Tobor" thing. They provided a canon excuse for the replay feature being added (something about secret cameras filming them) so maybe they are just going to give a canon excuse for the existence of the bot feature. Perhaps that would explain why there are two of each person, one for each team. They could even make a reference to how in the censored version clocks and gears and springs (amongst other shit) fly out of you.

    I don't even know why they put it in. There already was two ways of notifying when damage was done: Hit sounds and damage numbers, that can be placed everywhere on the HUD.

    it's not to help show if you damaged a player but if your being damaged apparently, it's being added so deaf members of the TF2 community have a better indication of such, which is great

    It's being used to create animations when you hit a player, the main one being HUD crosshairs changing colour when you damage someone else.

    Blue team is kept alive by that wierd life machine, starting with Blutarch and running down to the classes like a pyramid.

    Red team is ro-boT(s). Kept alive by electricity.

    YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST. (I HOPE.)

    -EDIT-



    VVV Yeah, but the RED team is usually depicted as the winners. Thus robots.

    If anything I'd assume Red team is not the robot team.

    So I had an odd dream last night.

    It was really detailed, I woke up, sat down at my computer and went on TF2.com like I usually do to check if there was any news while I was sleeping.

    Well low and behold, there's a banner "The Arson Update: Day 1!" and the banner said "Featuring Doe's Dumpster Devices set and new decals!"

    Basically day one went through Soldier's dumpster set, everything was in except the horn, which was replaced with the shotgun instead. They didn't have stats though, just names, and I don't remember any of the names but they were different than the ones submitted.

    Under these new Soldier weapons was a bunch of images of old items with decals on them. The Buff Banner had a new style with stickers on it, the Football helmet had a decal on it now, and there were a handful of new decalable items, including that skateboard from the workshop.

    I remember the whole thing looks really ugly. They used a terrible brownish orange as the background color, and everything had a very 1960s office theme. The posters for the decal stuff was on a corkboard for example.

    Then I woke up, excited to play with the update. Then I realized it was the Dumpster pack, so it must have all been a dream. Then I went back to sleep.

    I had a similar dream last week. Except there was no skateboard, the shotgun and battle banner were merged into one item, and it boasted "FIXED THE LOCH-N-LOAD" in bold letters which was a dead giveaway that it was just a dream

    I love how Day 1 of the Arson Update starts off with soldier items and decals for solider items.

    Ned you should have prophetic dreams more often.

    Now I've got the mental image of the worm from ned's avatar hunched over a crystal ball saying things like "I forsee... (eyes roll back in head) SOLDIER ITEMS. DECAL-ABLE SOLIDER ITEMS." Really wish I could draw.

    Only like five people are going to get this joke and the rest of the people will rate me dumb.

    I've always loved the idea of Meet the Pyro being less of an interview or story starring him and more like a late 60s early 70s music video. Like the Pyro lives inside of and sees everything as that once scene in the Beavis and Butthead movie where Beavis trips on Peyote. Four minutes of the Pyro running around killing people with special effects flying off, psychedelic colors, and big-titted demon girls giving him thumbs ups. It could flash back and forth between a "normal" view of what the Pyro is doing and what the Pyro sees himself doing.

    Then I woke up, excited to play with the update. Then I realized it was the Dumpster pack, so it must have all been a dream. Then I went back to sleep.
    I dreamt of it saying in big bold letters "MEET THE PYRO! AND The Second Saxxy Awards!" followed by "SOURCE FILM MAKER! Make videos even BETTER!"

    I clicked play on the meet the video, and saw it on a western styled map. It pans up to reveal what is apparantly a RED base. Inside, they're looking at a table and debating about something. What you can make out is things like "TOBOR" and "Raid".

    Just then, an alarm goes off, and the team rushes out to see Pyro rushing back to base, followed by a small army of robotic classes, each one saying catchphrases in mechanical tones.

    Suddenly, Pyro turns around and taunts to the music, rallying the team, before setting ablaze everything in his path. As the others are shown fighting robotic counterparts of themselves.

    As this goes on, Pyro starts lighting up the entire base, causing everyone to evacuate. It ends with Pyro standing over the base in the distance, watching the inferno.

    It cuts to black. "Introducing: RAID MODE".

    Then i woke up. Bloody dreams.

    The idea behind the original raid mode is, not the name itself.

    No one needs to know the idea it was to begin with, only what it is when (if) it's released under that name, whatever it is.

    I see. So they'll probably release something completely unrelated and call it Raid Mode.
    I think they'll give it a completely genuine name.
