Or are you just happy to see me?

Valve released the Soldier/Demo update about a week ago, adding 35 achievements to both classes, four new Soldier weapons, three new Demo weapons, crafting, two maps, Scout weapon tweaks, and about a bajillion bugs. There were a few server breaking ones but some were just… how did they do...
