What is up with that?


It's perplexed everyone as to why that's not working and we're working on it as fast as we possibly can.

For now, try server 4. We'll try and keep the map running on there.

Gifts are now dropping on TF2#9!

We're also running koth_viaduct_event on TF2#4 for at least the next 24 hours so everyone can play it! :)

Can we keep it that way? Games with gifts are pretty much ruined by 8+ scouts on each team. Makes it hard to kill the eye and even less people are playing medic. The chaos of 32 people with random ubers & crits is great fun.. but not when everyone is a scout. Sigh.

It was good fun last night :) Not many healing points per life, but crazily hopping from one player to another amongst the chaos was fun.

The Scout thing might wear off when players get a few more gifts and realise the map is so small that you don't need to play as Scout to get them.

Not that I've seen any, but I know gifts spawn in the Underworld next to the exit gate. Scouts have the big advantage there - take the portal quicker, reach the end quicker without killing yourself on the way like a Heavy/Soldier/Demo would.

If scouts are a problem then why not just play a class which can take out Scouts easily? It's not like the exact same thing didn't happen last year and people only played scout for a week.

Or play on the Valve servers where you can use the Sticky Jumper and still get 6 dominations per game.

You can do that even on UKCS.

Right! We've set up TF2#4 to run koth_viaduct_event 24/7 and now TF2#9 will run a combination of voted maps during the day and just koth_viaduct_event during the night. Now you can play all the halloween maps you want. <3

There is so much hatred on the event server or when the map comes up, 32 people all going for the same thing and its horrid and they can be very nasty about it.

I think there needs to be an admin on there at all times to keep the peace as the vibe can be real nasty on there. Wish it was a 10 or 12 man server it would be more civil then and people would work together to get the costume parts ( well they wont really but its a wish ).

I just bought the costume. Less stressful than trying to collect the parts; I haven't even seen a gift yet on this year's event, let alone got to it first.

I don't think this years is as much fun to play as Mann Manor though.

The map is more fun (I think) but having 27 normal costume parts and 27 haunted version means that nobody normal (i.e. people who don't play TF2 22 hours a day ;) ) will be able to find all those gifts in time.

The worst part of the map is that the underworld adds such a fun technique (go in, stop the other team getting in or killing then in there. Come out the other end critted, ubered, and sped up and go nuts on the enemy) but everyone who does this obviously-endorsed-by-Valve technique is shouted at for killing the enemy instead of the boss :(

I don't think you are meant to collect all the part, it's like the hat, almost nobody can collect them all :)
It's funny to see that many player have taken for granted that they should be able to get all the parts.

That's what you do when the BLU team all become gift-whoring Scouts. :)
