I've heard three terms for three types of Medic.

The first one is 'Passive Medic;' A Medic who just runs around and heals people. Gets plenty of assists, but isn't good at saving himself when in danger.

The next two I've seen interchanged, but I've mostly heard them used like so:

Combat Medic: A Medic who heals his team as much as possible, but isn't afriad to take out his gun against a vunurable sentry in Doublecross or someplace. (We've all taken out a lvl.3 sentry as Medic. It's pathetically easy.) He'll use his needles when they are more use to him than a team mate. A really good combat Medic will use the crossbow and heal/kill from across the map.

Battle Medic: This is what everyone despises. He's the Medic that will charge out with the Blutsauger with the thought in his head that it's as powerful as a scattergun. He'll seldom get kills and rarely heal his team.
There are good battle Medics though. I've been a good battle Medic before, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing; 'RED Medic is a fucking monster' in the chat. The key to being a good battle Medic is to equip the head and Blutsauger, then play in the most seldom traveled parts of the map. Lead your targets, and run backwards. They'll fall to your aids-filled needles in a heartbeat.

The last and best type of Medic, which is more of a branch off the battle Medic type, is the chain ubering Medic. These two will fuck shit up, even for a team consisting mostly of Pyros. A chain uber is really hard to pull off, and even the best Medics will find it hard. But it reaps rewards and dominations, it is worth the effort.

Ah, gotcha. Whether I Combat Medic or Passive Medic depends on who's on my team- but unfortunately there's the odd server where defending yourself at all is frowned upon. Maybe I should just not go Medic at all there unless there's someone to back me up.
>> No. 11623
Yeah, that's a good strategy. Unless you've observed the Heavy or Soldier on your team to be really good, Medic is a waste of time. Demos and Pyros are occasionally good partners, but unless the Pyro can airblast, she's a waste of your medigun's time. Also, never pocket a Demoknight and expect a sucessful uber. It just doesn't happen in public servers.

Why am I saying this, you probably know this already.

Post your pyro loadout, favorite weapons, and how they complement each other.

EX. my "roaming pyro" setup

The detonator is great for detjumping and getting behind enemy lines, while also causing general chaos. The backburner is (obviously) good for surprising lone enemies and mass murder when having detjumped behind the entire enemy team. The backscratcher is good for roaming pyros, as you might not have a medic with you. They're probably helping your team on the frontlines. And when you DO encounter a lost little medic, the Backscratcher works great for building Ubercharge, which he can then go and deploy on an offensive class in a push.

My normal loadout is Degreaser, shotgun, Powerjack or Third Degree (which is awesome)

vintage backburner, sheerly out of preference. i have a degreaser, but i simply prefer the backburner because i circle-strafe like nobody's business and i get a crit bonus. and despite the fact that the cost is 50 ammo, i use the airblast to my discretion. if i see a scout on fire near the spawn, i'm not going to extinguish them. if i see an engulfed medic on the front lines, definitely.

i use the detonator for flare-sniping and det-jumping. it actually comes in very handy (combined with a crouch jump) when i need to get to a higher place and i have health to spare. when enemies move out of my flamethrower's range, i nail them with the flare. thankfully, my extensive practice with aiming the detonator gives me a pretty nifty chance of hitting my target.

as for melee, i stick to either the axtinguisher or the homewrecker. i like pyrbroing it up with the engineers, so i'm usually wielding the latter.
>> No. 11437
Phlogistinator, Shotgun, Axtinguisher.

Even when I switch out to another flamethrower I tend to forget or forgo the air-blast out of carelessness, and for some reason I find the Phlog's reach easier to use.

I like the Phlog-Shotgun combo a lot because I use Shotgun as my primary, approach that way and do smaller bits of damage while shorter-range classes try to get close, then switch out when I run out of shots so when they try to charge me they run right into the Phlog's range. Then I can get out of larger-ranged classes' way easier because I still have enough space. I do ambushes as well when it's a good time, but with the Shotgun I can take it head-on as long as my timing is right.
>> No. 11439
Vanilla Stranges + Homewrecker

Fck y'all. I love taking a scout by surprise when he thinks he can weapon heckle me. Shotgun comes out, he gets buckshot at medium and long range. Also, rage spies when they gank the engie and then try to sap his stuff. I set them on fire, then save the buildings. Then roast them some more.

I must be doing something right, because I ranked up my Strange flamethrower four times in one cp_orange_superfort match.

People can get creative when changing their screenname.
i've seen names such as: SHAKE N' BAKE, The Rape Train Has No Brakes, The Pope, Don Juan, I'M PERFECT, StonerPanda, Adolf Kritler, Magic Pumpkin Muffin...the list goes on. any chuckle-worthy names?

So, they've announced the new Medic statue. Lets all gawk over it and whine about how poor we all are. Or, if you're rich, gloat. (Maybe buy us one?)

Also, what statue are you guys hoping for next? I want them to release a Sniper one.

Going by this theory, anyone wanna speculate just how many universes TF2 is technically a part of?
>> No. 11296
Oh finally, this thread was made. Now I can post my all-to-long opinion that very few people care about!

I like to think that each game in the Orange Box takes place in the same universe, just at different times. TF Industries started around....whenever Zeph founded it, then along came Aperture in the 1950's. Aperture went bankrupt in the 70's, and were bailed out by TF Industries or whoever. Then a bunch of stuff happened up to the events of HL2, and the Portal games.

Something in my gut tells me that they're not alone in that universe; that there's more games in the years between 1975 and 20--. A little part of me likes to believe that this all takes place on the same Earth that Lord of the Rings took place on eons ago, mainly becuase of the magic in HL2, and other things that cannot be explained with logic. But that's just my dumb and poorly-conveyed opinion. Have a great day!
>> No. 11299
Hahaha, I'm sorry, "Magic"? "Things that connot be explained"? Explained in our paradigm of science maybe! That doesn't make it magic.
>> No. 11302
By 'magic' and 'things that cannot be explained,' I'm talking about some things around the vortagon in HL2. My sister, who knows way more about HL2 than I do, says they use 'magic or some healing power.' (I've only played half the game, so I take her word for it.)

TF2 traders, get in here!

As many of you know...Tf2 has made Ellis Cap Craftable now. You can craft it with another hat now. The question I raise is simple. Many of Ellis's hats are being "destroyed" in the process leaving out a certain % of them out of existence. If this continues...will Ellis's Cap increase in value?

>> No. 11293
Rarity is only one of a number of factors when it comes to the value of a hat. The Hetman's Headpiece for instance is incredibly rare, but you'll be hard pressed to find many people shitting themselves over it.

Ellis' cap never had any cache value like Bill's Hat and the Buds do, it can still be received for buying L4D2 (I think?), although it can be worn by any class it only looks good on one or two of them, and finally it's just one of myriad baseball caps in the game. These all combine to make Ellis' Cap a low value hat, even now it can be crafted.
>> No. 11294

Delurking just to say the Alien Swarm hat probably will never be craftable if Valve is smart; the game is from is free and it does not take long to get the hat, which means that players could exploit the system of rebuild headgear and just use the Alien Swarm hats, which means easier to get hats.

Lots of idlers would probably use the exploit so money should not normally be a problem.
>> No. 11298
What color is the hat?

I'd like to match my Monday night combat-socks with it. Naturally i could paint both Team spirit but and it would match Scout's shirt too, but i think it's a bit too bright.

Can i get the same colour as Ellis cap with the new team spirit-esque colours?

After playing Tf2 for a few hours today, concentrating heavily on my Spying, I had to go to work at the theatre space. Just putting about, placing props where they need to be, and I found myself ducking into corners, and just waiting.

And I thought, 'What the hell am I doing?'

Realized, 'Oh. I'm waiting for my cloak to recharge'.

Stories of times you've found TF2 seeping into your own life. Go.

For some reason, whenever I see the number 144, I say 'ENFORCER CRIT!' in my head...because that's the damage it does on a crit. Don't know why I have it memorized, either...
