I like the new phlog simply because of the way the particles hit the target. It uses more of a beam sword mechanic, while the other flamethrowers are like a super fast syringe gun. So, pyro does the damage it's supposed to be doing.

Yes, I will admit that the Pomson is overpowered as hell, but it certainly helps me feel like less of a sitting duck

every time i see a pyro using the phlogistinator, i almost go OUT OF MY WAY to kill them. i can't stand that overpowered piece of crap.

So last night, I played Left4Dead2 for the first time. I expected it to be more similar to TF2, but I was pleasantly surprised by the sort-of realism. When I was dying, I was much much slower than the others at full health.

And I asked myself, "What if TF2 was like that?"
People getting shot, burned, etc. constantly, I can hear my legs breaking when I jump from a high spot, and yet off I go, running like a quick little bunny?

So what are your thoughts on this matter? Would YOU like TF2 if it were more like L4D in that aspect? Would you absolutely hate it? Would you be like me and probably play it like that once and get sick of it?

If I remember right, its cartoon-ish style was what made TF2 stand out before it was released way back in the day. At the time, big-name shooters were designed to be hardcore realistic with wall-hugging action and etc.

If you're talking about realism in gameplay though... it would have made TF2 a very different game that would appeal to a much smaller audience.

The "slow down as you're damaged" thing works for L4D & L4D2 because the players are meant to place survival over "getting mad killz yo", and worry about getting to the finish line with limited ways of restoring health.

TF2 as it is now however, is all about run-and-gun and objective-based fighting, where you have to make kills and cap points while trudging through bullets and explosions. In L4D, you were supposed to desire avoiding conflict and reaching safety. In TF2, getting into fights is the whole point of the game, with survival as a delightful bonus, but not a requirement. Universally hampering players' speed (or some other variable) through damage would not appeal to the average player today. In fact, when the Natascha came out, a lot of players raged severely over its slow-down effect.

Having played a lot on a friendly fire server, I can tell you it takes some getting used to. As a result, I don't shoot that much in L4D. I knock them away and let the others shoot usually, get the ones no one is paying attention to, or I snipe.

I was always glad for the lack of realism when it comes to pyros. "fire! fire!" is less disturbing that "OH GOD! AHHHHHHH SOMEONE KILL ME!" ugh. I wish I could through tf2 chars ini L4D though, it would be funny as hell to mix them.
>> No. 11188
If you want more realism just play Battlefield 3.

Sorry to bug you guys but I haven't been able to play TF2 for almost a year because it keeps crashing on my lousy computer. I'm going to try and get a new one (needs to be a laptop so I'm looking at a Gateway NV57H26U). I recall there being programs out there to make TF2 run better on computers as well.

Can we have a best computers to run TF2 on/ways to make it run better thread?
>> No. 11179
First, dem graphics. Turn them down.

Second, start poking around for config files. Look for old ones.

Third, run in window. I've found it taxes the computer less.

Fourth, close all other programs. Including tray crap. Especially crap in tray.

Also, Gateway = Bad. Go with Toshiba.
>> No. 11180
I dunno. My Toshiba was pretty shitty for gaming. Couldn't even run the Sims.

I went the route of getting a laptop that's good for gaming, rather than fixing the games to fix my lappie. HP Pavilion's what I've got, and it's got pretty good graphics and sound- never any problems, really.

But if it's just a case of using your current not-so-great-for-gaming laptop, and fixing it to run it, I'm afraid I'm not much use.
>> No. 11186
This is a little off topic but...
Whatever computer you have, make sure to use one of Chris's fps configs.

They saved hell for my comp. [I use dx9frames with a cap at 90fps] I used to crash tf2 every 30 minutes and now I play 4 hours beautifully.

So me and some close friends were thinking of doing this anyways, but I figured, why not bring up the topic with the whole chan? I never got to participate last year but would love to given the opportunity.

How would you go about organizing this? Hope it's not too late. I would be happy to help out any way I can.

Hey Cyan. I'm a bit sheepish about admitting it, but I'm your Secret Santa. I'm glad you like it. At one point I didn't think I was going to get it done in time, but I dug deep and made it happen. Getting two hardened mercenaries with very little in common to act tenderly towards each other is surprisingly challenging.

Fortunately I love writing Scout, so I was able to have fun with it. I read yours too, and it just blew me away. Goddamn it. Y U so good?

Banimal wrote my amazing, lovely Medic/Scout fluff!

I’m experiencing an acute need for age-bait emoticons, damn it! THANK YOU! I don’t know why you’d feel sheepish about admitting to being my Secret Santa? I already commented above (and on tumblr, which I now realise you must’ve seen too—oh the embarrassment) on how much I loved your fic. It was perfect to me! I’m so glad you stuck with it and finished it, because the result is everything I could’ve hoped for and more. I realise my request was very open-ended, maybe too much so; I’ll remember that for next time. But you gave me exactly what I wanted and I’m very, very happy!

>Getting two hardened mercenaries with very little in common to act tenderly towards each other is surprisingly challenging.

Haha, yeah, I know! No wonder my Scout always ends up in bad ways, poor guy. It wasn’t an easy pairing either; Medic/Scout is just begging for weird kinks, but it’s my favourite pairing and I’m a total sucker for fluff. And I have to say you pulled it off amazingly. I kept smiling when I read it. And laughing too. I didn’t want to add a huge list of copy-pasted quotes to my post above, but there were so many paragraphs that really stood out to me as excellent. Their dialogues too. And the jokes, which I mentioned. Perfect in every way.

>Fortunately I love writing Scout, so I was able to have fun with it.

I’m really glad to hear that! And there are not too many of us Scout-fans out there, which makes me extra happy you were the one who got my prompt.

Came across this the other day and it is quite the little godsend (srsly, I've got three strange vanilla weapons and a Haunted B'Ankh)

Basically you trade items (best to go with stranges, geniunes, Unusuals, hats, misc. and tools) to get in store credit which you then use to purchase items from the store

Make sure your Steam application is open, and that you are signed in on the website. Click 'trade'. Wait a moment and you should receive a friend invite on Steam from one of the site's bots. Accept the invite and the bot will request a trade. You give your items to the bot and they will tell you how many credits it is worth. You will get your credits after trading.

To buy, reserve an item and click trade when the '1' pops up. You will get a friend invite from a bot. Etc etc.
>> No. 10938
You also need to sell something first to get credits. I discovered that selling paint was a great way to get credits since it is something that people don't normally want to trade for and just sits in my backpack being useless.
>> No. 10939
yeah it kinda should go without saying that they're not giving all this stuff away for free.

got trade them some stuff to get credits first

Hey, guys. Time for a public service announcement.

We all know that Demoman is probably the most underrated member of the game - and in my opinion, he is. (Pyro comes in close second, but Pyro has a reputation for being a cute chub monster, while Demo hardly even has that.) So, with TF2Chan being the equality-loving place it is, I came up with this idea with a friend a few weeks ago.

It seems like the probably with Demo is not that people dislike him as a character, but rather that he's... admittedly forgotten about the most. Which is even sadder.

So, my solution would be to make a whole friggin MONTH about him, just to get him saturated in the culture and get people pumped up about him or something. (Kind of like how it was with Medic before the Uber Update!) Fanart, fanfiction, cosplays, crafts, you name it!


>Also, please only use Demoman reaction images if you can, to get in the spirit of things! This is definitely not a plot to get more Demoman in my reaction image folder what are you talking about lol u silly

When Valve has no idea which class to update, use the default of Scout, Solly or a Melee weapon for Demo. Clearly, they went with Solly. These were inspired by WETA Workshop, the people who built Valve a fully working motion sensor Sentry (minus the bullets)...

Can we all discuss these weapons? We're sorry Engineer... were just so sorry for the torture your about to be put through.

Went to the wiki to learn about Grockets. http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Grockets

The number 3 keeps popping out; 3 rockets, 3 ladders, 3 doors. I'm getting the suspicion that this is only going to be the second portion of Grordborts' contributions to TF2.

Also, HL3.
