It's live now. For faster download, set up your download region in Europe or Asia.

Uhh... How do you actually download the update? Steam isn't auto downloading like usual.

Steam servers are hammered right now
I changed my server from Canada to Norway and I got full speed.
In Steam, go in Settings >> Downloads + Cloud >> Download Region

Don't hold your breath, the wait time to get on a server is very high at this moment: (1 server = 6 players)

I love how you HAVE to buy a Mann Co. ticket thing to play on official (aka not free to play) servers to get loot drops. Also, one would think by now Valve would know how to launch an update without the game systems choking to death, but apparently not...

If you just want to play, use the server browser and try joining. I was able to get in on a server some dude was hosting on his laptop. Surprisingly it was pretty stable.

I would give it a few more days for the hype to die down to get on the official ones.

After playing 2 rounds, I must say this mode is pretty fun, but will be more better once the matchmaking works better and you can play with your friends easily.

Valve has never put out an update for TF2 without there sytems choking, last night it took an hour to update 1 server (with a gigabit connection), when my game finaly was updated I had a team set with 6 players all with tickets and we still could not play on the "official" servers. We ended up on a server I host playing with a password, I setup 6 additional servers shortly after that and within seconds of them launching they were all full (and still are... im loving the ad money valve is pushing my way). That should realy tell you how un-prepaired Valve was on this mess.

You know you don't have to pay for the ticket right?

Q: What is a Tour of Duty Ticket?
A Tour of Duty Ticket gives you access to Mann Up Mode, and can be purchased from the Mann Co. Store for $0.99. You do not need a Tour of Duty Ticket to play Mann vs. Machine on non-Mann Co. servers (i.e.: not in Mann Up Mode).


Basically all you get is some cosmetic items. If you don't care about those, then you don't have to pay for it.
