writing was on the wall from all the comments Robin made about the store.

They make enough from it that it can sustain future development of the game just through that!

It should also give a nice boost to player numbers overall (ps: tf2 just became the most played game on steam -> http://i.imgur.com/6iJAJ.png )

oh ..  a couple of sites some people might be interested in.

http://willitcraft.com/

Shows you what you can make from your backpack

http://www.tf2tp.com

Best Trading website (they're currently trying to fix the search on it). Allows you to set up trades and get people to post offers. Still need to trade in game but it matches sellers and buyers up so its good.

Made a Tomislav and it rocks. with a Medic on you will toast things at distance. great Tight grouping on rounds.
Face to face with a Heavy STD and you wont win at range you will however.

summer box plus what I assume will be another holiday key

http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Summer_Crate#Series_.2322_-_Refreshing_Summer_Cooler

also .. another "Nostradamus" predictions for 2 days time.

another steam community hat another Indian one perhaps? more bonus saxxy awards? ... i wish it was an tardy engie update but I wouldn't hold my breath.

the hints so far have been "Walking up the Hill"/"I'm on a Hawk (uncensored)"/"Salty Jones Tale". I have no idea how these relate to tf2 :|
