Now if you'll excuse us, we'd like to get back to our years-long quest to design the ultimate hat. "For the game?" you ask. Uhhh, sure. Now pass those sequins.

The Hatless Update is a major content update for Team Fortress 2 and was released on April 14, 2011.

The update included changes originally tested in the Team Fortress 2 Beta, such as the coaching system, voting system, training for the Demoman, Engineer and Spy, Badlands's King of the Hill mode, and several item tweaks.

Other adittions were the introdution of styles, dynamic model loading and the association between servers and Steam IDs. Bots had their AI improved and duels were given the option of being class-specific. The painting and voice chat systems were also improved.

Bugs

  • Although the Hatless update added many good things to the game there was also some bugs brought with it. such as a few days after the update the item system kept crashing completely randomly and for long periods of time causing the trade system of team fortress to be declined for a couple weeks until the random item crashes stopped
  • Client crashes were inevitable with this update happening to many players of team fortress 2 to have simultaneousness client crashes.
  • this has proven that update play testing is vital in order to prevent these atrocities from happening again

these were some of the most annoying bugs ever to happen within one single update


Additions

Coaching system

Main article: Coaching

Coaching is a system that allows players to be able to call on others for help with certain objectives, or to provide advice and feedback on a person's abilities and gameplay. A player can volunteer to become a "coach" through use of the headset icon in the main menu. "Students" may place requests for a coach through the whistle icon. After a matching process and authorisation by both players, the coach is automatically connected to the student's server.

Voting system

Team Fortress 2's UI was rebuilt to support a basic voting system. This includes voting for the next map to be played, the kicking of a player or the scramble of the teams.

Training

The Demoman, Engineer and Spy now have their own training lessons. A new achievement called "Ready to Jury" was added for users who complete all training courses.

Styles

Main article: Styles

Styles are different versions of appearence or painting of the an item which can be chosen by the player to be in effect instead of the regular version. Currently, the Ghastlier Gibus, Scotsman's Stove Pipe, Treasure Hat, Hat of Undeniable Wealth And Respect, Googly Gazer and the Pyromancer's Mask are the items with support for styles.
