Working at Valve can be quite perilous at times.
You face crazed Half-Life fans who run in the Valve lobby with explosives strapped to their chest, desperate for Episode Three information and a working copy of Half-Life 2. You face crazed Counter-Strike fans who don’t like game updates… or anything, for that matter.
You face crazed Day of Defeat fans who just want something, dammit. You face crazed Team Fortress 2 fans who want this nerfed and that buffed, and more hats, you face crazed Team Fortress Classic fans who just want to kill everyone, you face crazed Left 4 Dead 1 fans who have really gone insane and you face crazed Left 4 Dead 2 fans who complain a lot and then mumble about Left 4 Dead 3.
You face crazed Source modders who will blow up the entire building, you face Garry’s Mod fans who are so happy they’re insane, you face Portal fans who just want their damn game already, you face Alien Swarm fans who also want something, dammit, you face crazed Ricochet fans, who have evolved into super-insanity, you face Deathmatch Classic fans who are surprisingly, somewhat sane, and you face Gunman Chronicles fans, who will do anything for a sequel.
There are 250 people at Valve, but there are plenty more insane fanboys than that.
Fortunately, they now have something with which they can defend themselves from the onslaught of schizophrenic Hammer Legion members.
