I'm not sure if my drama deserves its own thread, feel free to smack me in case it doesn't.

Well, lately, my friend uttered some dreadful words to me. He is a terrible TF2 player, always playing Spy with Dead Ringer and Enforcer (which is so unspyish for me and blood boils within me whenever I see him in game). So, lately I was playing with him on one server, rocking the game as a Spy, being on the top and he asked me, why do I play his class? So I answered, well, I'm not in the mood for Medic, so I chose something relaxing to play.

And then he said: 'Medic is the easiest class in the game, tbh. He depends only on the skill of the one who is being healed.'

Truth is, I was mad. I was really mad. I shouldn't be, I mean, it's only a game, blahblah, but Medic is my favourite class, I LOVE playing it, I have spent over 30 hours ubercharging and whatnot and I've never thought about him being for noobs! I, of course, proceeded to rant like an idiot, I do regret that now, but, oh well.

But, the thing is, he planted the seed of doubt in my mind. Today I suddenly stopped and started to think: what if he is right? I am not a pocket medic or anything, I believe I know how to play, but aren't I nothing more than a leech? Launching itself on the naive Heavies or Pyros, feeding on their kills? I don't know anymore, TF2chan. I just don't know.

tl;dr - Is Medic a noob class or do you need skillz?

Medic is hard because your main priority is staying the fuck alive and giving the healz to everyone at the same time.
Not so easy when you're the main enemy target and you have incompetent teammates that think they're invincible with a Medic and go charging in without any other backup.
It's annoying when I'm on fire and nobody does jack about it, yet they bleat for Medic when they lose an insignificant amount of health.
Don't get me wrong, if you've got a good team or heck, just a single good player who's always watching out for you, it's glorious.
(Many props to Sanvich Sharing Heavies, Pyros Who Actually Bother to Extinquish Allies, and other such friends.)

I don't play/watch any tourney matches for any game, sorry. I dunno why, but I've never had any real motivation to.

It's just in my experience, I used to get yelled at if I was the lone Medic (which I usually was) and I had my "fucking Kritz" out. To the point where I stopped using it one day and never took it out again.

ahh that may have been shit teammates who didn't know how to use it. also could have been a map where you were offensive, ubers are more sought after fro those

TF2 announced that Steam would be having a "Steam Trading Beta". They are promoting that you can trade games and items in games (such as TF2 items) without setting foot in those games. This is in a beta format, so you can choose to try it or opt out. they have also annouced that Portal 2 shall be the next game to be able to trade in-game items via Steam Trade.

For info on what the hell is going on-http://www.tf2.com/post.php?id=6040

For FAQ's about Steam Trading Beta-https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6748-ETSG-5417

I do kinda like this in a weird way. If this will help stop scamming, then I'm all for it. What do you guys think?

Here's one great idea for Gabe: Why don't you put Golden Wrench and Saxxy in Mann Co. Store and put the price in about 300 - 500 dollars?
Keep the money or give it to charity, both players and charity people will be pleased
What do you think? We already had that 100 dollar hat on sale when Japan's disaster stricked

i agree thoroughly. plenty of people would actually pay a lot of money for certain items like golden wrenches, but if i earned a saxxy, i wouldn't want people to be able to buy it; it destroys the purpose. it's a solid concept though.

Maybe if the purchased ones differed in some way. Different color (copper or silver vs. australium/gold)?

After i heard a story about those 2 canadian fans going in front of Valve's headquarters and they demanded Half-Life 3 to be released, maybe i should go there and demand Golden Wrench in Mann Co Store.? Gabe would propably like my idea, and he would propably offer me lunch like he did to those 2 canadians

I really don't feel like this deserves it's own thread, but I don't want to barge in and try to start a discussion in other threads, either.

That being said, I am intensely curious - I have found a vast number of people who prefer RED over BLU, to the point of never playing / roleplaying / drawing a BLU character. I find this strange, since they are essentially clones.

Of course, if they are simply clones, perhaps people seem to prefer RED because RED feels more "canon" - all the Meet The videos depict the red team, most everything official has been for the red team, etcetera.

Personally, I like playing BLU on maps because it feels more challenging, and I like them for aesthetics also (because I am a sadist and blood stands out against blue). I do prefer RED bases, though, because the rustic feel is more homely and less cold / sterile.

I'm genuinely curious! I'd like everyone who has an opinion to post it, whether it seems inane or even overly complicated.

I usually pick RED 'cause of the Meet the Class videos. Although if it's a certain map, I'll pick a team with the less visible color (i.e. Sawmill I pick BLU 'cause red stands out more).

Oh yeh, pic related 'cause I play SNOIPAH and I need to be able to see my enemies, depending on the map.

I prefer neither in-game. I always random my team unless I'm trying to do something specific.

Out of the game, I tend to pick RED first, but I think that's simply because I prefer warm colors over cold. (Orange is my favorite). Though, I do have one TF2 related name I use; BLU Heavy in a certain game.

That's a great reason there son! You must have been a great contributor before, what with your witty banter and the sprinklings from your babbling brook of knowledge. The sheer power of your post has caused me to see that you are right in every conceivable way! Your literal logic has moved mountains within my mind, I may never thing the same way again, what with this rush of clarity! Breath taking!

That, or you're just one of the many that rage quit propelled on a torrent of butt blood because something happened you didn't like, and to save face and not seem like an asshole, you removed your old nick name to have a childish pop at someone who is still here and, gasp shock horror, still enjoys the chan cause I am able to avoid the bitchy side it can have by not sticking my nose into every shit scented pile that springs up.

Im guessing option two here.

The From Dust mask looks stupid, imo.

The Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad hats are okay, though Heavy's looks way too small on his head, and I don't know what could get Soldier to wear a WWII German helmet.

I'm glad it wasn't for Medic, though.

Also, Engineer just got himself a goddamn Pip-Boy. Seeing as DLC just came out for Fallout: New Vegas, what are they planning?

I'm terrible at recommending stuff but it's more of a Operation Flashpoint style game than say, CSS, Day of Defeat or Call of Duty. The Forgotten Hope mod for BF1942/BF2 would be a good comparison I suppose. Less arcadey than FH though.

For example, Guns aren't hitscan. They fire actual projectiles, So you have to compensate for bullet drop and lateral movement at longer ranges, especially with the pistol caliber submachine guns. Magazines keep their ammo counts when your reload and you don't get a magical indicator that tells you how much ammo is in your gun. I've gotten killed more than a few times because I did a tactical reload and ended up with a mag that only had a couple bullets in it, Or because I forgot to chamber a new round on my rifle. Tank combat is as good as in millsims like ARMA or Steel Beasts.

Here's a good video of some general infantry gameplay:

I've pretty much only played TF2, L4D, Half-Life 2, and Killing Floor in terms of FPS, so this is all going over my head, apologies. And I admittedly don't look at stats all that much yet. But it looks interesting, I just...the idea of playing a Nazi churns my stomach a bit.

Weirdest thing is, I have two Sexy!Medic pinup type sprays that I use. I tend to go to the same server every day, where most everyone there is a regular and uses a mic, as well as myself and one other person being the sole females (based on voice alone).

People I know to be men still stop and just stare at the spray for a good two minutes. Its weird.

my spray is Nyan Scout, and i usually spray it as soon as the round begins. once, i was on an achievement server, and i sprayed Nyan Scout in my team's spawn room. Not long after, another person starting micspamming a remix of Nyan Cat with Scout's BOINKs and BONKs. people were laughing and one of them said my spray was credit to team.

Hello, I recently started playing the game about 2 or 3 weeks ago (so far I've clocked in about 44.7 hours, 11.5 of which were devoted to offline training), but I still feel pretty damn useless when compared to my teammates mostly due to the fact that I just flat out suck at modern day FPS to begin with.

I'm not bad, per say, but I get infuriated when I get taken down by snipers and spies out of fucking nowhere and when I get gangraped by Pyros.

So, Tips, Encouragement, anything that you're willing to dish out, even F2P distain and how it's "KILLING THE GAME"

Also, top 3 most used characters:

-Engineer
-Pyro
-Scout

Oh, something I forgot to mention:
If you have horrible aim (like me), at least turn on the damage display so you know when you're hitting your opponent. Ranged weapons like rockets and grenades have a delay in the time from when they are fired to when they explode, so you have to get a feel for leading your target.

Same goes for when you're playing Sniper--not only do you have to deal with zig-zagging opponents and lag, but the hitbox is a little different from what you expect. (I find it a lot easier to aim for the neck. That way, if I miss, I at least still land a bodyshot.)
