I'd love to hear a discussion about this new update so I decided to start one myself. How do you like the whole store idea? Trade system? New items?
I for one think that steam has been pretty generous updating the same game for over three years now with no new way to cash in on their hard work after your initial purchase of the game. Micro transactions can be annoying but I think valve really did it right by making them only optional. You can still get any new item the old fashion way of finding them
The trade system is pretty convenient in my opinion. I've been lacking the charge n targe and I was able to easily get it by trading away an extra force a nature for it.
Thought I'd buy at least one item so I bought the spy's new dagger the "Your Eternal Reward." It doesn't allow you to normally disguise yourself so you are a lot more vulnerable to the enemy when you are uncloaked. However it makes up for it with silent backstab kills and instant cloaks when you get a backstab. I love being able to backstab an engie working on his sentry without ever alerting his sentry. It's a killer for turtling engies.
