Team Fortress 2 update fixes ancient bugs but doesn't really address the bot problem

Valve just dropped a small patch for Team Fortress 2, the first update since it addressed the “Save TF2 (opens in new tab)” campaign that saw fans making as much noise as possible over the game’s ever-growing bot problem.

Does this patch (opens in new tab) directly address any of the bot issues? Not exactly, but it does fix some very old bugs that have been quietly simmering in the background. Some have been knocking around for almost a decade, like laggy animations on Halloween bosses and skeletons. That should be all patched up now, plus exploits like using cheats on secure servers and players being able to teleport back to spawn by changing loadouts while touching the enemy’s spawn gate.
