Don't worry, our logo hasn't melted. Videogames have bugs. This is a fact of life. Some are obvious and easy to squash, and others are a little trickier to nail down. And then there are bugs like the one Valve fixed yesterday in Team Fortress 2. The bug occurred when a player selected the Scout, Heavy, or Sniper as their first class upon joining a server.
After that, switching to Soldier, Pyro, Demo, Engineer, Medic, or Spy on the same server would leave their local and server-side animations slightly out of sync.
It sounds harmless enough, but the practical impact was most definitely not. As you can see in the video, the mismatch between local and server-side hitboxes meant that shots that should have hit sometimes would not. And once it happened, players were stuck: Switching back and forth wouldn't clear the error, nor would dying or going to spectator mode.
So, in effect, different MvM robots are somewhat equivalent to a group of human players who die, change class, and then respawn; which means that they were also susceptible to the bug.
It's not a huge bug, as evidenced by the fact that it went unnoticed for ten years, but that's also what makes it so notable now. TF2 is not your average ten-year-old game: It's still one of the top five games on Steam, with tens of thousands of people blasting away at each other 24 hours a day, and is supported by a very active modding community. Yet somehow, this bug, which impacts the game at its most fundamental level— did you shoot the guy or not?
In a way, it's almost a shame that Valve fixed it. Please deactivate your ad blocker in order to see our subscription offer. Andy Chalk. See comments.

If they do he should be console banned because he is number one on the stats leaderboard. He might have multiple accounts. In another case I have also seen other players trying to mess with my game and the players in my server and I also saw The TF2 POLICE try to shut down my server, even though I was not cheating and changing the game rules.

Darwin Project 's servers will remain up through the rest of Don't let Darwin Project 's official release date of January fool you. Darwin Project has been available in Early Access since March The game at that point was fully playable and Darwin Project players have fully enjoyed it over the years.
That said, no one likely expected the game to shut down and for the servers to eventually be shut off so quickly. Darwin Project didn't settle for being just another battle royale game. Its inspired design featured a unique 11th player named the Show Director that "controlled" each match.
The Director was able to influence the game in exciting ways, ensuring that every round of Darwin Project is different than the last. While Darwin Project 's developers are shifting to other projects, that doesn't mean that the game isn't worth checking out. And matches will continue to be run so long as the servers stay on through By Rory Young May 13, Share Tweet Email 0.I'm in p.
Same for me, TF2 working fine, fault only with Titanfall and has been going on for days. Hopefully someone from EA can provide an answer, looks like the game has been shut down though. A real shame as its one of my all time favourites. Any help? I just bought this game a couple of weeks ago. This is the first game I've bought that is apparently completely dependent on some server working to play, even for single player.
This is ridiculous. In any event, I can understand a server being down for a day, but multiple days with no response from EA? So this is the famous EA technical support I've heard so much about. I'm on PC. It says last status Nov 8, though I could have sworn it used to say August something. I'm assuming they just shut the PC servers down with no announcement and have no plans on bringing them back up.
I'm glad I only paid a few bucks for this piece of garbage. I just fired up UT, a game that's 15 years old at this point, and their servers are up and running just fine. I can still hop on a DM and play with no problems. I guess EA supporting a game for more than a couple of years is too much to ask. This widget could not be displayed. Help us improve Answers HQ!

Message 2 of 12 1, Views.Is Minecraft really shutting down? The internet at large seems to think it is, but thankfully there's a harmless explanation for the confusion. Minecraft is one of the biggest games of the past decade, arguably the biggest game if we really wanted to put a fine point on it.
And let's be honest, the game has never been better, not least after introducing cross-play with PS4, Xbox and PC at the end of last year. That's on top of the fact that only in October, at Minecraft's big Minecon event, Mojang and Microsoft revealed the next big Minecraft update coming to the game.
But the Minecraft Nether Update wasn't 's only big Minecraft news, because Minecraft Earth also launched, bringing a new form of augmented reality sandbox game to android and iOS devices. So it seems especially odd to see rumours circulating this morning suggesting that the increasingly popular series was not just in trouble and but potentially shutting down in on December 21, So do the millions of fans of the game around the globe have anything to worry about?
Here's everything you need to know to set you straight don't worry, it's good news. Thankfully no, the developers Mojang have no intention to shut down the Minecraft servers in According to Polygon the rumours surrounding Minecraft shutting down appear to have originated from a prank site known as Channel45news. Minecraft became a smash hit and took over Fortnite in half a month in popularity. It has been gaining more and more players the more days that passed on, and when the clock strikes midnight and when the day reaches the 21st of December ofthe game will say its goodbyes and thank them for the memories they gave and received for more than a decade.
However, we pray that most who bother to click on the site will not be fooled because there's a ruddy clown on the sidebar with a sign that reads "You got owned". We doubt many will know, but the Channel45news domain is specifically designed to let users generate false headlines to be shared online. Despite the clearly rubbish website enough people appear to have been duped into thinking the game was actually shutting in and shared the information in kind with others on social media. But if you really want some clarity on the situation, Microsoft community manager Helen Zbihlyj has also tweeted to put any rumours to bed, telling readers:.
