Re: Team Fortress 2

But, you're ignoring one fact. Demoknight is fun.
The claymore and shield do fit with the ingame theme for the demo, fairly well, if not the existing mechanical role. So yes, it is a sort of tenth class.
It's not like demo can be the best spammer and a demoknight at the same time.

Re: 0562: "Parking"

You know, it's not that easy to cut a car in half. It took us weeks to cut this green neon in half to that it could fit through single doors, yet be re-assembled for a pit crew challenge. Of course, we were trying to keep it somewhat intact, and removed the engine and seats and stuff.

It sorta looks like inverse ripples on the surface of a pond. It's got to be waves fropm the edge "stacking" when they meet at the center.
