TF2 Sniper Update

The Team Fortress 2 Website as an update penned by Robin Walker describing the trickiness of updating the Sniper class in Team Fortress 2. He describes some findings from their research on players' reactions to being killed in the game, noting the particular distaste for being sniped most players have, leading them to approach the sniper unlockable in a way that would make the sniper more approachable. Word is: "In an effort to reduce some of the aggravation that other players feel towards the Sniper, we chose the goal of designing an unlockable that encouraged the Sniper to get a little closer to his target. We want him to give up some of his primary advantage in return for something else, so that enemies he kills feel like they were engaged with them, and feel like they could have survived if they'd just managed to fight a little better."
