It's a bug; none of the particles were updated.

They annoy my eyes, and I don't even have epilepsy.
Very thoughtful Valve!

This.

Lights LOOK nice but the constant flashing is kinda like "wat"
I mean they are bombs, after all.

Regardless, a simple strobe-frequency change is all that is required. They probably won't get rid of the effect completely now it is here. They never got rid of the Enforcer after all...
Photosensitive epilepsy is a type of epilepsy where flickering or strobing lighting can induce seizures or less-dramatic physical problems (headaches). It's not some "excuse", it is a neurological disorder. It is also quite ignorant to state somebody "shouldn't play video games at all" because of that disorder; sure they should avoid certain types of games which has lighting effects that can induce their epilepsy, but there are lots of games that are fine for that somebody to play - TF2 being one of them until this (unintended?) addition, so there's a good reason to remove it.

The glow should be removed entirely, noone ever complained about crit stickies not being visible enough.

Now if you're making a sticky trap and get a crit sticky, you have to start all over again

to be honest, there should just be the option to have them on or off

I am sure it was a mistake, they'll fix it in the next patch, same thing happened to the teleporter glow not too long ago after an update, they became bright and annoying until they were fixed in a later patch.

I like the trail following the pipes and stickies... but these insanely bright crits are too much of an eye-sore. It also affects Jarate and Mad Milk as well, in the off chance they "crit".

As a demo, setting up a trap.. I (for once) actually hope I don't set a crit, just because it ruins the whole point of it.

Probably hats.

I hope you're right. You've been right before, so I expect you are right. Now, will it be fixed?

It's obnoxious as hell. Hopefully it's fixed very soon.

edit: [Ah as someone mentioned it's a bug. And it makes sense since I've seen it before.]

That is very true.

The effect shouldn't be removed, but should be placed as a separate option, or at least as an added effect for colour-blind mode.

That way, its the best of both worlds.

The crit glow isn't a bad idea but the OTTness of the effect is ridiculous at the moment.

I agree, having option to turn it off/on would satisfy everyone.

Well, I've been finding it hard to see them recently, and never had a problem before which is making it rather irritating.

Particularly somebody airbursting them, I get distracted by the flash and look where the flash was as opposed to actually tracking the sticky...
