Valve is planning on releasing two more maps for Team Fortress 2 within the next two months, Valve employee Robin Walker informed. One of the new arenas is a remake of Team Fortress Classic's Badlands map. In the meantime, while waiting for the map pack to be released, Valve will ship other new content. That other content includes the forthcoming Medic achievement pack, which will add several new achievements for the Medic as well as a significant gameplay tweak for the class. "It's a large scale modification to the core of the game," Walker hinted. "It'll debut in a limited fashion through the Medic first, but it'll be affecting all classes eventually." "We're really looking forward to the community reaction," he continued. "We're really excited about where TF2 will be going over the next year."

wouldnt the remake be cap the intel? or is that what u mean.

also, a gameplay change which will affect all classes, are they gonna kill off the spy? ffs PLEASE, heheheh.
i hope they dont change too much about the game, dont get me wrong im all for improvments, but i think valve got it right with tf2 in the first place, i dont wanna see a good game get worse because the developers went and changed too much of the game, eventually ghey'n it up. altho i cant recall this happening to games ive played, it prolly has in the past.

btw; i like the exploit fixes in the game, but why go and alter the classes for?

They better not F up the game. I love crits - they're a nice surprise. I don't care if I die from them all the time, they fun.
