    Had a quick look through the medic achievements and some are nuts and quite unachievable in normal play still it'll be fun to try once the current lunacy dies off and most people stop playing medic.

    well valve have really messed up , they have left a cvar command in to do the following:

    1.unlock weapons
    2.unlock achievements
    3.reset achievements

    The servers where full of medics on first release counting 8 in one game i was in all grinding for the achievements now they can just unlock them with the cvars...

    Im sure valve will fix this today but what they intend to do about people who used the cvars I do not know we will have to wait.

    meh if you want to "cheat" to get them thats your business, the new weapons aren't unbalancing so as far as i can see there is little to be gained by achiving them except for just being "that good".

    ps, not you specificity by the way.

    lol thanks :) and I wont cheat for them I play medic a lot and this update has ruined it for me as I cant play my favorite class due to everyone being a medic.

    I think valve should have given the weapon unlocks out for good teamwork via capturing control points, defending points , getting intel, pushing cart along etc(although that is also open to abuse too) and just have the achievements as something extra for people who like playing that class.

    w00000t, downloads update as type this :D

    Look forward to the extras, however I feel it to be a bit much for a single class in 1 hit, without adding extras to the other classes at same time :(

    Lot of the achievments are rather lame, an achievment for being a medic, for healing a heavy, for healing another medic... etc etc, ie, achievments for doing what your suposed to do!!
    Others like the 10kills in a row with bone saw are a lil trickyer to achieve.

    A thought crossed my mind with regards to the uber saw, in that a pair of medics with the uber healing gun and the uber saw loadout, whould be able to charge up quickly with the saw, uber heal the other medic, switch every 8 seconds or so, pair of medics on a saw rampage, could get interesting.

    hopefully next time I play this game it won't be broken.. I've played a scant few times and the time spent playing was a lot of fun ..i attributed this to the great balance the game has... I'll be interested to see how that balance holds given veterans/newbies, as time goes on

    Sweet, Gold Rush is pretty awesome! Defending is pretty tough though.

    The only one thing I would gripe about is the fact that EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER is now a medic! On a team of 12 last night half or more were medics, not that it is bad having more around but still, kind of ruins the gameplay since you have more than half "defensive" players and not enough to get the job done on objectives. I think Valve should have released the goods for a few more classes to even it out. I think this will even out itself as people get bored trying to get the new achievements.

    Ah, and the Kritzcrieg is the ultimate when used on Pyro :D

    i think these updates are great and all but its been what- 6 months for valve to release them? working at this rate (an with no delays, ha), if they did the same thing for all classes it's not going to be done for 4 years!

    played a few rounds, goldrush was an interesting yet fun map to play, however what spoils it a bit atm, is the number of medics.

    you know, i would have used the cheats, simply because 2 of the achievements are essentially impossible for me- the ones involving steam friends. i don't add friends on steam. phooey.
