Well that was a colossal waste of frigging time.

 

Just going to try again in a few hours.

Does anyone know if you get into a game faster if you have a group?

 

You don't.

Want to watch random players play MvM?

 

Connect to Bacon's STV relay: [...]

 

I'm so alone

 

Bacon isn't hosting MvM anymore, so I guess this won't apply. Carry on.

My friend opened a local server.

 

Jesus christ, Scout with 7 baseballs and max reload speed is fun, especially since the money overheal has no cap.

 

And Pyro with Degreaser + maxed out axti (+100 health per kill, 40% faster hit speed) is quick fiery blunt death to anything that isn't a tank or a pyro.

Spy is not useful in MvM in the slightest.

 

Even fully upgraded, the sapper has a cooldown and can only disable a few bots at a time.

 

Not to mention that backstabbing ANYTHING alerts nearby enemies to your presence.

I beg to disagree, sapping any bots that may have advanced bomb buff and backstabbing them, and /then/ going nuts with 4 seconds of crits is pretty damn useful.

In related news, Kritzkrieg is fucking ridiculous.

I must also disagree. If you backstab starting with the back of the pack, you have a largely decreased chance of being detected, and with added health on kill with the knife, the spy can be very self-sustaining. IW is essentially useless compared to DR, since they don't detect your disguises, but it's incredibly fun and helpful once you get the hang of the change of pace.

Someone did a workaround

http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2880062

 

Haven't tested it yet

 

I just had a full game with 5 other friends of mine, if you and your friends are trying to play, then try the following.

 

A ) Use the Dedicated Server tool to set up a local server

B ) Give the server IP to your friends.

C ) Your friends add the server to favorites

D ) You can also join off of a friend that has the server on their favorites or are already connected.

E ) Connect and kill some robodudes.

 

It's a slightly inconvenient workaround, but it works nonetheless.

 

Happy hunting!

 

 

EDIT: For specifics, it's the Source Multiplayer Dedicated Server tool.

I was able to hop in and play some rounds. It's really fun.

 

I couldn't now because everyone is playing and left me because I had to go do something dumb.

Played with Axel, Baker, Red, Will, and Donut.

 

This is really fun. We were playing on Mann Up, which is apparently Hard Mode. Furthest we got was like, the very end of Wave 5, and then it's just too much for us.

I looked at the new cosmetics in the item test server. Most of them are metallic reskins of already existing hats. (I wasn't able to see the medic or soldier hats)

The one that looks most appealing is the new Engie hat, other than that it's quite bland.
