It's actually the best tenth class suggestion I heard so far too. I like it even if it's probably unlikely Valve adds a tenth class. (then who knows what they do after the Demoman/Soldier/Engineer updates...)

Of course if they do add a class, they should probably do it with a update that adds stuff to other classes... or else the servers is filled with the new class.

IIRC most rumors revolving around the "10th class" were generally pointed towards the addition of the "civilian" or "courier" for the VIP mode. For those of you that don't know, VIP was a popular game type in the original TF and involved escorting a small man (played by a member of your team), armed with an...Umbrella? Across the map without getting him killed.

Well you have to keep in mind that Payload was a compromise between the "escorting something" gameplay and "not depending the game success on a single player actually behaving/not griefing".

I like when fans create things like this, especially when they incorporate achievements with the Valve sense of humour (The "Who's a Good Boy?" picture is just adorable ^^) Though I don't foresee it ever happening (I don't see a number of people taking dogs being blown into bloody bits very kindly, even if it's been done to some extent in Call of Duty: WaW), I would be ecstatic if it did... and if Valve balanced it right >.>

Of course, that's the second iteration of the letter he sent. Didn't get it quite right with the first.

Now... I am confused though. I mean, my news-forum post aside... Would it be just a joke if the devblog actually reports it?

Kudos if it's a joke because I fell for it hook line and sinker then, it's certainly more elaborate than anything I've actually seen that was meant to fool people. But at least Valve can say that it's just a fun submission instead of even trotting out the MANN Co. letterhead. :/
