In the off chance someone sees this and responds, I wanna ask. What are your best Chan memories?

My best is the first time I played on the Circlejerk. The map was Rats_Tequila_b01, and I had such a blast playing with everyone that I continued to come back to the Chan. I think that if I didn't have such a fondness for that memory, I would have never stuck around. I would have never read Lessons, or Owl's Spyro stories, or discovered Makani or Lintu's art.

I continue to search for servers hosting that map whenever I get on, because I just have such great memories of playing with you all.

Just the general moments of playing with people like Perrydotto and crew, regardless of what server we were on. I was even lucky enough to meet Perry in person a few times and would have happily done the same with all my old friends at one point.

Post about your thoughts about things that bother you in TF2, whether it's just annoyance or pure hatred. I'd like to see unpopular opinions without people silencing each other and not letting people criticize Valve's decisions.

I was a little disappointed about the Halloween update because of how few items were added, that there was no boss and the minigames were mediocre. But I'm also mad that the community is filled with babies who kick you from the game when you lose.

overwatch is just something different after a while of playing tf2 i guess some people want to try some new class based shooter
>> No. 14764
Wait, Overwatch is hardcore? Are we playing the same games here? Or maybe it's because back in my day, the only competitive TF2 was league TF2, where we had teams that you tried out for and sometimes paid money to be on, and map reviews and you'd watch demos with your invite-level mentor so that he could tell you why you suck...

Overwatch, by comparison, boasts a ranked matchmaking system that is slightly less broken than TF2's ranked matchmaking system, but only slighly. Tryhards join this ranked matchmaking system hoping to have serious competitive matches similar to those in TF2's competitive community. The matchmaking system then proceeds to match them with a bunch of complete strangers who are nowhere near the same skill level, who may or may not have a clue what they're doing. None of them communicate, both teams run a Huntsman Sniper, one team stomps the other team, the worst player on the losing team posts in global chat flaming everyone but himself for the loss, the Engineer's sentry gets play of the game and everyone walks away feeling deeply unsatisfied. So basically, Overwatch's competitive mode has all the ballsweat and toxicity of a real competitive community but with only a fraction of the actual competition.

Overwatch also has a Quickplay matchmaking system which does not claim to be competitive or well-balanced. Ever since ranked came out, Quickplay is mainly used for practising new heroes or for pitting a team of six space apes against a team of six emo kids just for the hell of it. The seriousness is on par with that of a Valve public server, but it's still matchmaking, so you still have to wait to play and you don't get choose which map and you may never see your teammates again afterwards, which is a bummer.

They also came out with 3v3 and 1v1 game modes which are almost exclusively for dicking around. Every week they release a weekly brawl, which is a match with some weird rules (imagine a 6s match where you could only play Soldier) and is also just for fun. And every now and then they have events where they release a novelty game mode, which so far has included things like a horde mode and a rocke

"The Lessons" is never going to be finished and I never got the chance to read the original fic, which I assume was scrubbed from the internet once he started writing 2.0

This chan is dying and he'll never finish it, in part because of that.

I still think about it, sometimes.

i watched Léon, The Proffesional the other day.

theres a part where he says that the better the assasin, the closer he can get to his target and how you start at the sniper rifle and work your way down to the knife.

because of that i now believe that Spy is actually a better sniper than Sniper is

Scout has a really fluffy blanket that he's had for as long as he can remember. Every night he cuddles up to it and strokes it and whispers to himself "I am a great fighter" over and over again until he falls asleep. He's done it since he was like 2, and he hasn't lost a fight yet, so that makes it scientifically proven (in his mind) that it WORKS.

Soldier's mom always wanted a girl and always tells him that she thought he was going to be a girl and how DISAPPOINTED she is that he wasn't. Of course, that doesn't make her love him any less, but it never feels that way to him. He probably would have always had mental issues, but his upbringing didn't help none.

Pyro goes apeshit when they see magic tricks. Like they fucking LOSE it. No one can tell if they're really fooled into thinking the trick is real or if they just REEEEALLY love magic, but it's a surefire way to get the little firebug hyped af.

Demoman actually gets laid fairly often compared to the rest of his team. I mean, he's not that bad looking, and most women would find a guy who takes care of his blind, elderly widowed mom charming. He doesn't tend to have STABLE relationships because yanno... alcoholism is a bitch, and while he might be able to hide his addiction for a night, I doubt he'd be able to for much longer than that, but yanno. It's somethin. Enough to make Scout jealous, anyways.

Heavy is actually the second youngest member on the team, after Scout (and not counting Pyro because who the fuck knows). It's hard for most to tell because he's so... big. And intimidating. And... Russian. Also, he's used to being the oldest sibling so he naturally tends to "act" older. But he's not even in his 30s yet, surprisingly.

Engineer takes rediculously good care of his teeth. He brushes after every meal, flosses, all the good stuff. He also doesn't bleach (unlike Medic - but don't tell anyone), so his teeth are legitimately healthy, not just blindingly white. He's proud to say he's never had a cavity in his entire life.

Sniper smokes, but he smokes fancy

Despite saying she only gets one day off a year, Miss Pauling has a surprising amount of free time (provided the mercs don't do something stupid).

Soldier cares the most about the team after Spy and Heavy, but between the lead poisoning and various degrees of crazy he has, he doesn't know how to show it and resorts to tough love and terrible jokes.

The entire team watches Star Trek. Engie was banned from talking during episodes after criticizing the science too much and making Pyro upset. He secretly writes to the producers and fan magazines about how it could be done better. Medic has tried to replicate several of the alien creatures including Tribbles. It did not end well.

Miss Pauling roller skates and is an avid roller derby fan. She could have been on a team before working for TF Industries but was considered too plain and non-aggressive for it at the time.

Heavy only pretends to be bad at chess because Medic is a sore loser and would whine about it to no end if he lost. Most of the team is in on it and gets a good laugh out of watching Medic get frustrated.

Spy is a swiss army knife of skills and hobbies. He has the money to get his clothes tailored but prefers to do it himself. Besides sewing, he knows basic carpentry, calligraphy, oil painting, bar-tending, cooking, and a list of other things. He sees himself as a Renaissance man and finds the various trades to be useful when creating covers for himself.

Animals naturally gather around Sniper due to his quiet, relaxed demeanor. Lizards and snakes are particularly fond of draping on him and hiding in his pockets. He takes it in stride and leaves bowls of water in the shade of his camper for the critters. He has yet to tame Lieutenant Bites.

Scouts brothers were all skirt chasers at some point and it rubbed off on him. His ma made very sure they knew how to treat a girl right in bed, but he never learned how to properly court women. This makes him nervous around anyone who is more than a potential quickie, but at least he can eat them out like a champ.

obviously the 10th class will likely never exist, unless they do happen to input a VIP protection/escort mode.

but its always fun to dream, etc. so drop some of your ideas about what the tenth class could be... heres mine:

The Scavenger:

>spawns with no weapons and ammo (maybe just a strong pistol.)

>has to get weapons (and in some cases, special equipment) from fallen enemies and teammates.

>has same health as the soldier

>same speed as the sniper

>can use any melee weapon from any class, provided he can scavenge them in-game.

Sampson was actually exactly what I thought of when I read the description. My objection to 'combat chaplain' wasn't an objection to having a chaplain on the battlefield at all, just to having one that dealt damage...

But, I like the idea of a holy man on the field who couldn't kill you, but who hurt you if you killed him...

that does sound like a brilliant idea
>> No. 14735
I have an idea for a class: the Artillery.

Weapons: Multi Missile Launcher, Machine Gun, Sledgehammer

The Artillery is heavily armed and armoured, which makes him a walking tank. He is a combination of the Soldier and Demoman, but he uses long range to dispatch his foes just like an actual artillery piece. The Artillery lacks any sidearms and he is very slow, even slower than the Heavy.

My first time playing tf2 i chose the map ctf_doublecross. I played engineer and was so confused about everything. I did not even know you could build. I only chose engie because of the meet the video.

I used to pray to star and jerma every day and would enjoy their videos to death. I wanted a baby faces blaster so bad, and when someone else got it and not me, i got irritated.

Those were the days...

Scout's so fast that I used to get vertigo playing as him. Games don't usually make me sick, but playing Scout, playing L4D in general (no idea why), and Guns of Icarus (the rocking of the airship) all make me slightly dizzy. What's weird about the GoI example is that I've been on an actual boat, and that never made me sick, but the virtual one does.

I started playing TF2 in 2011 and I only played offline bot-mode. Looking back on it, I think it was because I was afraid to make an ass out of myself in a real server. I almost always played engie or spy.
Kind of reminiscent thinking about it. I guess being naive and new to the game provided a greater sense of immersion. Did anyone else have this feeling?

Only play Sniper vs Sniper maps.

Slowly realize just about everyone who is a regular on the server is gay.

I Soon I realize that I am gay as well.

Now you know where gay people come from. Use your secret knowledge for good.

Talk amongst yourselves about this fan made update.

I wasn't hyped about this short at all so I think it was pretty decent overall.

Regarding the map, I myself have been playing it recently out of curiosity and I have to say, while I'm no pro map tester I know for a fact it is a flawed as fuck map. It has some really awful sentry spots that can mean one team that locks it down with a Pyrbro can be pretty much invincible, it also feels like a lot of the area's are just pointless. Like rooms and little stair wells that really have no reason. On a cosmetic note I feel like it had some really off lighting choices however that could simply be due to it not getting finished.

But yeah, I personally can see why Valve dropped it in the end. It was just the manor that they dropped it in that caused the whole backlash. They just needed to be blunt and tell us what they didn't like, not blame new players.

But yeah, fok it. We'll get over it.
