Hmmmm, least it's looking like those who don't like competitive play are finally going to have a good mode to play in the game since all they're fighting are AI's.

Kind of looks like TF2's take on a "tower defense" game style considering the robots come in waves and you can upgrade your weapons and such between them.

Ugh, Kotaku. Someone should tell Luke Plunkett that "you and five friends" means SIX players, not five and that he should have learnt to count before entering a career in journalism.

I'm not too surprised about this, since I'd heard before about the presence of robot class variants being present in the Source filmaker collection of ingame assets. Even the giant parts.

Should be an interesting gameplay addition.

Hmm.. This seems interesting considering the comic series revealed the third brother and now a third faction. Huh.

Why 6 though? Why not 12?

At least it's better than 4, good lord I'm getting so sick of that number.

Balance reasons, I assume.

If Valve allows, there might be "increased cap" player servers, kind of like the 32 player servers out there (though I recall the game actually warns you that the game is optimised/balanced for 24 players, but the warning can be dismissed permanently).

I can't wait to see how this all plays out, looks promising!

I wonder if we'll still be able to collect loot like guns and such like we do against human players?

Just so we're clear, it's 99 cents for a random chance hat/misc drop. The game mode is pretty much free. You only have to pay for the rewards, which are entirely cosmetic and non-gameplay affecting. So no incoherent nonsensical rage, please.

Edit: Update is out.

Oh yeah, MvM servers are 32 player servers with 6 slots held by players and the rest by bots/spectators.

This entire Mann VS Machine update has been a complete comical* screwup as far as the servers go. Valve, there's something wrong when 10k players are waiting half an hour to an hour to join a coop minigame, and then to get kicked when they finally start loading into the server.


*It's comical because this is probably costing Valve money. New/returning players to TF2 because of the publicity of the Mann VS Machine update probably aren't going to stick around if they can't ever actually PLAY the Mann VS Machine update. Which means they won't buy stuff from the Mann Co store, which is the way TF2 makes money now that it's F2P.


edit: Okay, I'm officially convinced that Valve is worried like shit about people being pissed at the Mann VS Machine update server issue.

Maybe it's just coincidence, but it seems kinda weird that after two days of mucking about with the Mann VS Machine servers, I get a hat drop for the Tyrants helm.

Yeah I was wondering about that.

Why is it so hard to find a Co-op game?

I'm guessing since everyone wants to try it out, particularly the "Mann Up" variation of the co-op mode, so there probably aren't enough servers to meet the extremely high demand... Looks helluva lot of fun, but I guess I'll let the whole thing cool off a little first.

I've played a few games of MvM. It's incredibly fun, though there are a few kinks in how servers handle the game mode. If there's somehow a spectator (apparently there's supposed to be no spectators), that's one less bot on the map at any given time, so having several spectators can severely nerf the difficulty. Also, either there's some bug in the server browser where full servers somehow are displaying as empty servers full of bots that can't be joined, or bots are taking up slots that are supposed to be for human players.

Stop using the matchmaking system, which is awful and use the server list which is way faster.
