Possibly hinting at a Meet the Medic release during the Saxxy's?

Oh goodie, another weapon only a hand full of people will get and thereby make folks feel offended that they didn't get one, and make people want to hack the folks who DID get one just so they can destroy them. :?

Didn't we learn anything from the Golden Wrench? Seriously?

Valve, I am disappoint. :evil:

Well at least it's a reskin, much like the golden wrench (but for any class). I want to see somebody get backstabbed by it :lol:

EDIT: Looks like I can

aww, I was hoping that the spy would flip the trophy around like the knife. Funny that it repairs buildings too :]

There is several differences though. Golden wrench was "random", and it later turned out it really wasn't random and was just about lucky timing (craft at the right time, get wrench). Saxxy awards was dealt out to people who won a contest, so they technically deserve it.

Personally I'm more disappointed over some of my favorites not winning the contest, but most of the winning videos are at least good.

True, but this still feels like just one more thing to piss off the community as normal.

Yeah they won, just like all the Polycount winners won, but all the Polycount folks got pins.

Like I said... it wasn't like I was going to win, but after the whole Golden Wrench thing, I'd have thought Valve wouldn't be trying to do this thing again.

Bear in mind.. The community VOTED for the winners. If they're pissed off, why did they VOTE?
