About time!

But what the about about unlocks? the Powerjack is currently the strongest melee weapon in the game.

Unlocks should probably remain allowed. During impromptu melee-only, there are certain classes that are definitely over-powered and have very few ideal counters. But this is all part of the game.

Also, are we leaving this as "pure" melee-only, or will tactical stuff be permitted, like Bonk, CritaCola, Sandvich, compression blast, Jarate etc.?

God no please.

Ban the unlocks for the love of all that is holy in the eyes of the melee gods.

KGB Heavies absolutely ruin melee only.

There are barely a handful of balanced unlockable melee weapons, and it's not worth allowing KGBs, Targes and Equalisers just for them.

This is a melee event where the rules are set in stone and not up for discussion. This may sound harsh but we would go round and round in circles with a lot of valid points but where would we stop? Unlocks? KGB? Spy knife?

Huge thanks to Xerxes for the sig :)

Then frankly, Kan, this event will not succeed as well as we all (I'm sure) hope it will.

This isn't a case of slippery slope, it's a case where many of the unlockable melee weapons are undeniably overpowered in a melee environment. Those that aren't, end up being inferior to the normal melees.

If you were in a game where players could only use Pyros and Spies, what class would you pick? The former I'd bet because it's completely unfair on the spies. That situation is actually better than the one melee is in when unlocks are allowed.

You may as well call this the KGB/Bleed Weapon/Equaliser/Powerjack/Targe Skullcutter Event and just skip the rest of it.

Honestly, we try and we try to do events that you all want and do our best to sort them out to a standard that works and all we get is complaining. Things like this don't just happen overnight- it takes planning, configuring, co-ordination and above all time to sort things like this out. It's more than a little disheartening to those of us who are working to keep events coming on TF2 to be met with such overwhelming negative criticism. Just a little food for thought.
