The Little Engine that Should

You may have noticed that for the last 24 hours or so, that community-run TF2 servers around the world have seen some unusually long downtime.

This has occurred due to a relatively large change that Valve have made to the engine. The main symptom of this, is servers being caught in a crash loop.

Because of this, the MetaMod and SourceMod teams have had to work hard to fix things, so that we may all enjoy TF2 again.

I have been focused on having our servers back up in a stable state again and as such you may see a few extra server restarts over the next couple of days.

In the meantime though, I have updated cp_snowplow on Project Beta and added a new map into Project Ghost’s rotation.

 

 

Do U Know TF2?

How many hidden game mechanics of TF2 do you know?
Have you played over 1,000 hours and still finding out new things?
Do all these weapons make new players feel alienated?

Do you actually give a damn?
My dear?
Frankly?

If you do care, then perhaps we might share with you something you didn’t know.Here is the first two informational videos, of many to come, where we reveal a secret to accurate pistol firing and why a heavy is so deadly up close.
