When does Scream Fortress start this year?
Last year it was somewhat later in the day on the 1st, so I'm hopeful it will come out by tomorrow. Hope it's today though. It would really suck if they go back to starting it around Oct. 26th like the old scream fortresses, but maybe the trend of the last 2 years is a good sign

28 new unusual effects??? Holy fuck, there have got to be more Halloween and Christmas effects than other ones now. And ugly too. I remember the early Halloween effects were subtle, like a regular looking cloud effect with a moon that occasionally changes to a skull. Now it's undertale skeletons dancing under a discoball.

I started doing the contracts for the new maps today and I would be really surprised if I was told nobody else got stuck at arena_graveyard (lumeryard_event). They should really look into lowering the amount of kills required, each round you only get about one or two as enemies get picked by your teammates and the point in the middle is almost never captured as almost everyone is dead by the time it gets activated.
On that note I think Erebus and Horror are trash (Erebus being the worst one I've played so far) I still don't get how they screen the maps.

Los muertos is mediocre, Erebus is horrible, I had a pleasant experience on farmageddon, Graveyard sucks (though that’s mostly because it’s arena with spells, arena in casual no less), Sinthetic was alright but mostly forgettable, and Terror was fine. The contract experience is much easier when playing with friends, I often find we knock out the entire contract in 1-2 rounds since points are shared. My only gripe with group contracts is that contracts are in locked orders, which makes coordinating maps with people a pain since you’ll inevitably have to redo maps, and if you want to get the contracts done sometimes you have to redo some of the more unsavory maps. It’s not a massive problem though, I’m mostly just having fun playing in the Halloween spirit, made sure to get some fun Halloween sets for my mercs too.
Further fueled my cosmetic addiction and opened some new crates, to no avail in my quest for a new unusual. It’s fine though, since most of the hats from this crate are ugly anyways, and I got everything else I wanted.

They really dropped the ball cosmetics-wise. Most of the shit added is rehashed ideas from already existing cosmetics. The corpse carrier is probably the most egregious one. I know that the TF art style has been murdered 10 times over since Mann-conomy, but it seems like Valve really doesn't want to respect hitbox readability anymore. More incentive to install the no hats mod.

This isn't Halloween restricted btw.

That's going to fuck with so many people. I hope the fake scout doesn't have a hitbox.

I didn't realize how bad the bot problem had gotten was until I started trying to play some halloween maps, I usually screw around on community servers. I hadn't played casual in a while. I know I'm late but entire servers were just filling with bots. It's a shame.
Scream Fortress casual servers are unplayable because of the bot problem. This is also my first time playing Scream Fortress, so I'm pretty disappointed. :(

I love Scream Fortress, but hate everything about the Carnival of Carnage map. Just got it out of the way.

Hello my weak weary friends the server is up and running, the ip is tf.hotpot.hk. Weapon reverts have been added to make most weapons usable now, information on that below. Any map ideas, plugins, or other suggestions would be much appreciated. Inshallah
Those reverts are nice. I miss when the Loch would just outright delete scouts.
As for maps I'd just say Hightower. It's the TF2 equivalent to being hooked up to a machine that jerks you off in perpetuity.

Apparently, bots are DDosing the servers.
They have been doing it since saturday if my experience this weekend is worth anything.
People are also saying that they're using lagbots but that's not the case, they're most likely using a rented botnet or loic or some shit, you can have a game completely bot free and still get DDOS'ed.
