O’ for the win, for the wins of the tf2dove. I was going to be lazy and just put the rest of the lyrics in as the show notes, but it appears Felix Mendelsohn and William Bartholemew beat me to it in 1844 by writing a song so repetitive those few words you’ve memorised from it, actually make up 90% of the whole. A hundred years later and an entire […]

Item Trading TeamFortress Blog

In July of last year we outlined our position on gambling web sites, specifically noting that Valve has no business relationship with these sites. At that time we also began blocking many CSGO gambling accounts. You can view the original post here.


More recently, some gambling web sites started leveraging TF2 items. Today we began the process of blocking TF2 gambling accounts as well. We recommend you don’t trade with these sites.

I was lucky enough to visit Valve’s HQ this week. It was a social visit; checking in with a some people KritzKast has had the opportunity to interview in the past. I was joined by a couple of my fellows from TFCrew Uncle Dane, Jewlander as well as spectator mod coder – Pazer. We were given a “behind the scenes” tour of the offices. I can attest, Valve’s stationary closet […]

It’s my absolute pleasure to have been joined by the consummate amateur of audio, a.k.a. Soundsmith. For the sonically underprivileged among us, he is the creator of such delights as DemoDemoPan: Orchestral Arrangement and Dapper Dog: Frontier Justice (Orchestral Arrangement). Please take a listen before weeping openly, like the men I’m assuming you to be. Then visit his YouTube and follow him on twitter. Also on this show: New TF2 […]

Merry Smissmas, Everyone! TeamFortress Blog

In the classic Smissmas story "The Gift of the Magi", a girl sells all of her hair to a hair warehouse to buy her boyfriend a watch chain, but in a shocking twist, he looks at his watch and remembers she's bald and it's time to break up with her. That's when the Magi show up, and it is a BLOODBATH.


The point is, giving people gifts can bite you in the ass. Too much potential for twist endings. So this Smissmas, why not sit back, scroll down, and leave the gift-giving to us.


New Festivizer Weapons

The Festivizer now has more weapons it can festivize, including the Fire Axe, The Jag, The Kritzkrieg, Pistol, The Quick-Fix, Natascha, The Sandman, The Spy-cicle, Kukri, Shovel and The Scottish Resistance.


New Winter-Themed Community Cosmetics

We're shipping 17 new community cosmetics in the limited-time keyless Winter 2016 Cosmetic Case. Plus, The Festivizer can now be found as a bonus drop when opening the Winter 2016 Cosmetic Case.


New Taunts

Two new community taunts—The Scotsmann's Stagger and The Didgeridrongo—and one new Valve taunt, The Table Tantrum, are now available in the Mann Co. Store.


Casual Match Improvements

At the end of a Casual match, players will now be automatically formed into a new match with the same players and teams. You'll also get to vote on which map the new match will take place on.


New Autobalancing System

We're introducing a new autobalance system for Casual Matches and community servers that asks for volunteers to switch sides. Casual matches will reward you for switching teams by giving you the chance to earn bonus XP!


Big Sale in the Mann Co. Store

It wouldn't be Smissmas without the Spirit of Practically Giving. Look for 20%-75% off selected unlocked cosmetic crates, taunts, and tools in the Mann Co. Store through January 11th, 2017.


And last but not least... Stocking stuffers for everyone! Merry Smissmas! See you in 2017!
