Team Fortress 2 Details

As noted on the Steam Forums, a new issue of German gaming magazine PC Action has new details about Team Fortress 2 (thanks xXBatmanXx). There is a translation of the significant details on Halflife2.net, where they have details on classes, maps and gameplay, and some general details. Here are the general details:

* There won't be "normal" grenades anymore. Valve thinks that they unify the different classes too much.

* Unlike in Fortress Forever, teleporters are kept in Team Fortress 2. The ammo dispenser will make a comeback as well.

* There will be a personalized statistics system. For example, you could see an in-game message like "Hey, you've never played your class as well as today - keep it up!"

* Valve thinks that classes in other games are a joke. "Where's the difference between me choosing a M16 or an AK-47 rifle?", asks Robin Walker.

* It would be technically feasible to let owners of a PC, XBOX 360 and PS3 play against each other. Whether this feature makes it into the final game is still uncertain and depends on Sony and Microsoft.

* Valve received very few threatening letters because of TF2's comic design.

* Owners of multicore processors will get additional, undisclosed, graphics details.

I've hated the bunny hopping in every TF generation. I clanned in TFC for a while before it completely took over. I did the bots for ETF, otherwise I would have never touched it. Seems like with every TF mod it's all about the clanners, and we can see how far that took ETF, granted it came very late. FF guys seem different and much more focused on trying to appeal to a wider audience, so I'm doing bots for them as well (queue the 'bots ruin games' comments)
