Man, check out all this stuff. The first and second-place winners for the propaganda art contest are hilarious.
Any comments on the new equipment? I think the idea for the Direct Hit is great, but will definitely take a lot more skill. On the bright side, it'll make killing my most hated class easier. I'll probably try to get really good with it, so far most of my favorite weapons are more strategic.
The Demoman stuff is weird. It sounds like it could end up being sort of overpowered, mostly because it gets better as you get kills with it. And decapitation...I don't mind, but frankly I'd rather see more hats and actual better graphical effects.
Who knows, it may all come out extremely well-balanced. Definitely an exciting update here.
