Scouting For Scouts

Finally, some new sustenance for all those hungry piglets who've been loyally suckling on the Team Fortress 2 teat across these long, dry months. Robin 'Genuine Australian' Walker has snuck a titillating update onto the official TF2 blog, offering a few data-morsels about the upcoming Scout pack.

The key phrase is this: "balancing his replacement weapon has been very tricky due to large threat difference of the Scout between skilled and non-skilled hands." Nothing especially revelatory in that, but it's a foundation for enthusiastic theorisers to build upon.

As for the when, sounds like there's two back-end updates due this week, and then the Scout pack will be the next priority. So let's guess at a 'soon.' Hopefully there'll be a new Meet The Team video to go with the update. We've got just Medic, Spy and Pyro left to go - perhaps the classes most rich with tragi-comic potential. Exciting!
