Well all us TF2 players have been spamming either our demos or sollies in an attempt to win a secret weapon for their class. This seems a great idea doesn't it? Well I have to agree, it does seem like a great idea. There are also currentyl propaganda comps and many other things. But what I'm worried about is if after the event is finished, whether or not people will keep on hating the other class one side being smug toward the pther for getting the weapon, the other being bitter for their loss.
I don't think there is much chance of this happening, the steam community is surprisingly resilient with these things, the item drop update blew over pretty fast (although this could've been due to the backflips done by Valve) and many of us remember the melee cooldown update for L4D. There were people shouting on the forums for about a week and then everything went away. Another brilliant example of this is the L4D2 Boycotters, as soon as the game was released the group pretty much disbanded and everyone went out and bout the damn thing.
But in this event the matter is slightly different, instead of Gamers vs Valve, its Demos vs Soldiers. Or, to put it another way Gamers vs Gamers. And we all know what happens when gamers get angry with eachother, we have wars for the next 5 years! So lets hope to Valve, the white night of PC gaming doesn't go to overboard on the inciting of the violance.
