    A mandatory update for TF2 is going to be released within the hour. The TF2 servers will go offline one by one as I patch them.

    good times.

    Were there any details released on the patch yet, or just a minor update?

    Just bug fixes as far as I can tell, though no patch notes yet.

    This makes me want the ambassador even more. It is the only unlock I am missing from the Spy/Sniper update. Can we have weapon trading now?

    The Ambassador is so much better, I'm actually finding myself being more of a battle spy now, I'm going out on the frontlines getting headshots lol.

    I would've given one of my six razorbacks for a Dead Ringer before this patch too. Now I hear they ruined it.

    I got 6 straight headshots on a pyro pushing a cart and he took net 0 damage, then killed me. I stood on the track while he pushed the cart straight at me and shot his head 6 consecutive times with the "critical hit!" thing coming out of his head. Nothing. I now hate that gun.

    i'm going to agree with this. dead ringer to me seems pretty worthless now. the recharge rate isn't worth not being able to cloak on the spot. guess it's back to the cloak and dagger for me.

    The same thing happened to me last night. I wish they made it that a headshot with the ambassador was an instant kill like the sniper. I thought that is what it was supposed to be.

    I was wondering why you were just standing still in front of me. I was using the pyro shotgun which is terrible at range, and managed to take you down. Remember though that I was being healed by the cart, I was taking damage, but nothing serious. Now I have to be more careful.

    The ambassador can hit more than one target at once and does full crits now. It kills most people in two hits as apposed to the previous five or six. I love it.

    What I don't like about the ambassador is that is doesn't shoot stickies. I was sitting on the last point on Warpath last night with no one around on the point except for a set of stickies. I went to shoot them off and I couldn't. I don't know if this is a glitch or intentional. I ended up backstabbing the demo then capping but had to wait five minutes to find him. :lol:

    I think not being able to shoot stickies was unintentional, but I'm not complaining. If this wonderful, wonderful hand-cannon gets any more perks, they'll nerf it again, and I don't think I could bear the disappointment.

    Now you have me wondering if you used the dead ringer if you would survive the stickies being set off, if so it would be far faster anyway. Of course there is the issue of getting there...

    The Ambassador is now elite. I have a few kills with it, and I'll have a few more in the near future.
