- On an unrelated note to the list above, did you know that Tip of the Hats is this weekend (AKA tomorrow)? Did you also know that their contributor medals are already in-game with the last set of medal additions? That's right! It's the perfect event to lead up to Thanksgiving, at least in Canada.

I don't understand, are they not fixing competitive bugs out of spite or because they are more complicated than other bugs?

Wandumpretty sure they just dont care

they have a lot going on right now, resources and people are pretty spread out, if we get any major update its going to be something for heavy and so forth. I never expected a big themed Halloween update like the old days, just not realistic.

all they have to do is pull stuff off the workshop and they somehow only managed to find 2 maps?

how did it become even less than previous years? The maps were the only somewhat redeeming part

Laughter is fun, but it crashes when you complete the winning round. https://imgur.com/a/slnQmuI
The shooting range at spawn is actually very fun too.
