This coming Tuesday November 9th, 2010 the TF2 item system will be down for maintenance starting at 1pm PST and ending at approximately 2:30PST. We are significantly increasing the amount of database horsepower behind TF2 to accommodate all the recent additions to the system. During this maintenance the following TF2 features will be unavailable:
  • Backpacks
  • Crafting
  • Trading
  • The MannCo store
  • Loadouts
The game itself will continue to work. All players will have their default appearance and weapons.

To keep abreast of the status of this and future TF2 item maintenance, subscribe to this thread in the TF2 forum.

Note to developers using the TF2 Item Web API: As part of this maintenance all item IDs will change to eliminate negative IDs. We will be shifting all item IDs forward by 2100000. Depending on what data you store in your database, you may need to do the same.

The TF2 item system is going down now. It will be down until approximately 2:30pm PST so we can move to a new database server. During the downtime no item features will be available, but the game will run with the base items.

A new version of the item backend was just published to match the client update that just went live. Items were unavailable for a minute or so.

A new version of the item backend will be published at 1:30pm PST. This will help us diagnose some performance problems we have been tracking.

All duels and crafting sessions in progress will be cancelled. Dueling pistols will not be consumed. Downtime should be less than ten minutes.

The TF2 item system is having some trouble related to the Steam server update earlier this evening. We are working on getting it working again.

Hi all.

We are aware of the long wait time while matchmaking for both Mann Up and Boot Camp users and are working on resolving the issue. We appreciate your patience!
