Something is wrong, very very wrong. The keys...they appear as pink and black squares similar to the ones you see when you haven't uploaded a spray or when a spray breaks in game. Nonetheless I bought two keys and uncrated some loot, and when I did, there was no image, only pink and black squares. Then when I went to equip the item, it was invisible!

What the hell?

Not unboxing anything. Fucking terrible update. Maybe one or two decent hats in the lot.

I can't even join games now. There's an update available, clearly, but I haven't gotten it yet. Any server I attempt to join tells me the server is running a newer version of the game. Hopefully this mess gets sorted out. I can see what I got through my browser, I got some sort of robotic demoman cap for the sniper.

I refuse to use my other key until these problems are solved. And the fucking thing still shows up as pink and black squares when I check in game.

Ooh Niichts/star, my favorite TF2 commentator got his hands on some crates. He's gonna unbox 50 crates! Lets see whats inside!
I really, really, like the first hat for the Pyro he unboxed.

I was pretty surprised when they announced that they where using the robotic boogaloo items in the update, and especially by the amount they used. I'm think it's a pretty nice update. Lots of great hats in it.

But the only hats I wanted where a Bunsen Burner, Mecha-Medes and Byte'd Beak. I unboxed the Bunsen Burner and I got the Mecha-Medes and Byte'd Beak from Neodement in a trade.

I also happened to get into a server where a bunch of the item contributors where getting interviewed in. They unboxed tons of crates, which means they also got tons of of Pallets of crates. All of them used those pallets which means I now have 109 crates I have no use for at all. Included a shit ton of robocrates.

In case you don't know, the pallet of crates is an action item which gives a crate to 23 people on the server.

I have zero self control and unboxed 20 of them.

Power companies don't mind if you skip an electric bill now and then, do they?

I did, actually. I really wanted the lightbulb for the Pyro, and I got that plus the new eyes and a level 42 robot brainslug, which I'm totally happy with as a new complete loadout for him.

Got two Bunsen Braves too, and traded one for a Teddy Robobelt.

Unboxed 5 of those robo crates, got garbagio. Because I'll only really be interested in these new robotic items once they can be crafted into.

On the bright side, just crafted a Ham Shank. #2122, bummer that the number was 100 crafts away from being something that mattered.

You know, today is my brithday. You can't imagine the face I made when I uncrated my second robo crate. You see that? That there is my first unusual. It's the rare unusual only robo crates hold. Eyup, Valve must have known it was my birthday.

But the two robo hats I have are both for demo and I wanted one demo and one pyro hat. I guess if I had the Scrap Sack I wouldn't be able to use my Sight For Sore Eyes, and I am never removing those.

Damn, I didn't even realize how good I liked. I wish that Tuxxy was more visible on the demo.

Nice, I was listening to the Kritkast livestream and watching the video feed of that same server. They were certainty ecstatic of the event and jokingly poke fun at the spuf threads that were sprouting outcrys of disappointment. The podcast that followed really gave me a new light on what the community can accomplish and how the robotic boogaloo came to be.

Kudos to the team. If anyone else is interested in the podcast, here's the link.

Use 'print screen'
Then you can open something like MS paint and click on paste or whatever.
