Re: Meet Your Match Update

Yea, this matchmaking update has reconfigured online access and it fundamentally changes how players join matches. I don’t care for it because I like to choose the map, and I only like a few. True, you can choose the style of the map, such as “capture points,” “capture the flag,” and “payload.” But ...

Re: Gun Mettle Update

I also see a couple of major balance changes (spy and engy), couple of "please please please use this weapon!" changes, one flat-out buff (Demoman??? Seriously???), one I don't know enough to comment on (Sniper), and Pyro gets... well... I don't know if I count as a good pyro anymore, though I fanc...

Re: The elephant in the room?

I want to say, “Thanks” to Acedeuce for bringing this question to the forum. I noticed the same strange phenomenon. One week, Dustbowl was normally populated. The next, it was empty. And it has stayed pretty much empty. Like someone threw a switch and turned it off. Above posters have covered many p...

Re: Medics: You Already Must Know About This, Right?

Plinko, thank you for clearing that up. I appreciate your clarification and advice.

Please consider our "fight" concluded and have a nice day. :D

Re: Medics: You Already Must Know About This, Right?

Plinko said: I disagree pretty heartily with a lot of that. Plinko, based on your second statement, it is very clear that you disagree with my first statement regarding it not being the medic's "job" to heal. OK, I get that. We disagree. Fine. But do you also disagree with some of the other four poi...

Very good tip, especially for players without a lot of medic experience. Several key points to add: Medics are not servants. It is not the medic's job to provide heal...

Re: Sad assessment of recent pyro nerf

Thanks for the feedback. Regardless of everyone’s opinion about the propriety of melee, once the axtinguisher was introduced, it quickly became the de facto weapon of choice for pyros – who at the time were (and now once again ARE) weak and unpopular. The axtinguisher invited more players to try pyr...

Sad assessment of recent pyro nerf

My latest assessment of Valve’s June TF2 pyro nerf is depressing. The nerf mainly consists of changing the damage done by the axtinguisher and postal pummeler. Formerly, both weapons would deal critical hits to any burning foe – from any direction. The June 2014 nerf changed this. Now, critical hit...

Re: REALLY need a way to scramble server

The frustrations you voiced are legitimate and reflect my ongoing experiences too. So, totally justified, bro. btw, let me take this opportunity to say that you are a grand presence on the servers when you show up. I really enjoy playing with you. Always a challenging opponent, or an inspiring team ...

Re: Taking a break from TF2

I support the reversion of stickies back to full power. Mainly to compensate demomen for other significant vulnerabilities. For example: demomen have somewhat low health: 175 As a result, they are not hard to kill. Scouts and snipers can one-shot ‘em. Pyros can burn ‘em quickly, or puff and sting (f...

Re: Broken Age

I am playing Broken Age now and I find it to be very enjoyable. Very charming story. Interesting settings. Excellent voice acting. Pretty good dialogue – but I wouldn’t call it “snappy,” and I expect snappy dialogue from Schafer. Well…. there are some snappy exchanges. I agree with Garrett that the ...

Re: New Quickplay Rules - Reserved Slot and Stuff

Regarding slot reserve: I hardly ever use it. If it goes away, I won’t really miss it. I am willing to wait. Sometimes I wait for up to 30 minutes. Ain’t no thang. I DO use the slot reserve sometimes if the wait drags on past 20 minutes or so (which hardly ever happens) or if TF2 crashes on my syste...
