I must say, Valve has a pretty good sense of humor. Two days ago they linked to this fan-made TF2 Guard Dog mock update. It isn’t real, but it’s pretty awesome that Valve would acknowledge the community like that.

A couple updates ago, Valve changed their Team Fortress 2 item acquisition system so that players could get unlocks as item drops. That led to many players joining what are known as “idle servers”, where players would just join the game and just basically go idle. By doing that, they didn’t have to play but still got the unlocks.
Eventually a program was released so that you could just these “idle servers” without having the full game open. Valve doesn’t like this and they’re doing something about it. The players that used these programs (4.5% of all players) are having all their unlockables removed, the good guys are being rewarded with Halos.
I just checked and I got one =]. Do you?
