    An update to Team Fortress 2 has been released. The update will be applied automatically when you restart Team Fortress 2. The major changes include:
    • Fixed a client crash related to the robot destruction HUD
    • Fixed an exploit where players could circumvent successful kick votes
    • Demoman can no longer detonate sticky bombs while taunting
    • Strange Ranks are no longer displayed on the web (Trade, Steam backpack, Market) and only show 'Strange' as a prefix
    • Default value for convar sv_vote_issue_scramble_teams_cooldown has been increased to 20 minutes
    • Fixed sound clipping issue for the Demoman's Spent Well Spirits taunt
    • Added Jarate lightwarp preset to the Steam Workshop importer
    • Updated the model/materials for the Neckwear Headwear to fix a lighting issue
    • Updated pl_cactuscanyon
      • Increased amount of time the middle gates remain open before and after a train passes in stage 2
      • Adjusted spawn times at end of stage 2
    • Updated rd_asteroid
      • Removed env_sun from the skybox
      • Optimized skybox performance
      • Lowered Scout/Sniper damage against robots
      • Fixed doubled-up health kits on the bridge
      • Added area portals to the base interiors to improve performance
      • Continued art-pass process
      • Fixed zebra-style art on static props on systems that used lower texture quality
    • Added experimental cpu_frequency_monitoring convar to detect thermal throttling. If you have TF2 performance problems on Windows, add "+cpu_frequency_monitoring 2" to the TF2 command line to see if CPU thermal throttling is an issue. If the displayed CPU frequency percentage drops below about 80-85% then you may have a problem with your CPU slowing down due to overheating. If it drops below 50-55% then you may have a serious problem. CPU overheating can be caused by overclocking, insufficient cooling, insufficient airflow, failing or dirty fans, or other causes. The CPU frequency results are displayed with cl_showfps or net_graph. For more detail see https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2715-YIPD-6873

    This was fun, why would they remove it. If I was in an army I would train myself to kill the enemy while spinning arround drunk detonating my previously places C4.
