daily reminder that unusual weapons are a mistake
I spent like $30 bucks opening halloween crates and got nothing woth over a dollar.
Opening crates is a waste if you want to profit, and gas been for a while.
You might get lucky and unbox something worth a key or two. Buts thats rare.
I am phone posting and don't have the roll image.
How ofthen do you buy unusuals? Stop being so rich
One more can't possibly hurt. Also, lose that attitude. Once you move to America, you're American. So many immigrants don't understand this, which is why we're all praying for that wall.
I usally buy 70-100 keys at the beginning of the month and buy a really flashy hat for a class. Once I get bored of that hat I normally use it as overpay for another hat, so on and so forth until I am down to a nuts and bolts dread knot or something.
Then I either raffle it or sell it to geels bot and raffle off the shit I buy with the keys.
Then the cycle starts anew.
It might be a giant waste of time and money but hey, I'm having fun, I try to buy from people who are clearly not big traders so they get some profit and people enjoy raffles.
Never had an unusual, probably never will since the appeal kind of died after they released the aussies and so fourth, not to mention unusual weps
I have a large mousepad, maybe 60cm. I can easily 360.
>holy fuck this is awful advice do not listen.
>Spamming behind a wall is retarted because they can literally just move a way.
>The onyl way to get good at soldier is to jump a lot and have good dm especially up close. If you actually get good you can easily pop people up and airshot or just keep hitting people with directs.
Yeah but you're the retard here pal, you're supposed to do both. Shooting into a corridor is very useful.
>Also wtf is autoheal, just heal people.
Not needing to hold mouse1 constantly, it's in advanced settings too now that I think about it.
>Use a reasonable sense so you can actually turn around
But I can. Are your muscles actually this atrophied?
what up FAGGOTS
wanna hear about how my epic 6s buddies had a blast playing mixes today?
oh wait, ur probably too UNCOOL to even comprehend the meaning of those words in that order
whatever, do you still trade? i would be pretty sad if after years of playing this game all i learnt was the value of some cosmetic garbage and how to scam 12 year olds online
anyway, gonna trial now , cya later alligat0rz
Hi. I posted this Sonic Heroes TF2 crossover fan list yesterday. I've improved it since then.
Scout, Heavy and Medic make up Team Sonic. Scout moves fast like Sonic. Heavy's great strength makes him a match for Knuckles. Much like Tails, Medic likes to support his friends.
"Awh, that freakin' egghead tricked us!" - Scout when he falls for one of Eggman's traps
"Keep hiding inside robot, coward!" - Heavy when he sees Eggman
"<maniacal laughter> The best medicine!" - Medic after killing many of Eggman's robots
Sniper, Spy and Engineer would make up Team Chaotix. If you underestimate either of these odd bunches, you'll end up on the floor before you can reconsider. Spy uses stealth tactics like Espio. Sniper is like Vector, he's mellow and reliable. Engineer is Charmy, people wave him away as useless, only to get stung.
"Blood, I can clean out of my suit, but this?" - Spy in swamp levels
"Take a picture of ya head Eggman! It'll last longer than the actual one." - Sniper at first boss fight
"I'm no expert, but this thing might fly!... Actually, I am an expert. It can fly." - Engineer at the flower in Frog Forest
Demoman, Soldier and Pyro would be Team Dark. They are all destructive classes, who inflict grievous damage on anyone who gets in their way. Soldier is like Shadow because he moves quickly, and can destroy enemies in the blink of an eye. Demoman is like E-123 Omega, he views his enemies as obstacles instead of actual people. He kills them without forethought or remorse, fueled by his consumption of alcohol. Pyro is like Rouge (NOT because he's a girl) because he's a specialist, who prefers to use other techniques than fighting people upfront.
"Soon as I blow that Eggman to pieces, I'm done with you two lassies." - Demoman to his teammates upon starting the first level
"Oh yeah! This airspace belongs to America!" - Soldier when him and his team fly through bonus rings
"Mmmph!" - Pyro
So that's it guys. Please let me know what you think. Improvements maybe?
I didn't know that you couldn't wear hats when your bald. Thanks, now I know!
I didn't know bald people are actually wearing a hat.
what's wrong with knives?
nothing, knives are useful to cut food or fight with bears
virtual knives in the other hand...
Okay, here's a classic movie one.
Can they stop balancing games around putting one decent player on a team and pretending its balanced?
this makes for some of the most unenjoyable matches i've ever played
having a team of average joes against a team of one or two pubstompers and a bunch of noobs is actually pretty good for both teams.
The average guys need to use teamwork to stop the pubstompers while not neglecting the rest of the opposing team, while the noobs get a huge morale boost and a bit of help with their game, and the pubstompers probably get some kills in their strange rocket launchers
>round 1 is okayish and has nice class picks, most of the characters are being played
>we win legit
>enemy team just builds 7 sentries and call it a day, turtling them 24/7
I WOULD PAY $1000 FOR CLASS LIMITS
AND BUY JILL XER FAVORITE BRONY FIGURE
JUST ADD THE FUCKING THING
Its time for another full set raffle. Nothing really fancy this time but I like this set even if I wouldn't use it myself. Might work the skull into something one day since its a misc.
Anyway, as usual you get everything pictured as well as some additional wrenches.
Use it, sell it, whatever
i don't get this "jill is a tranny" meme
plenty of weebs have anime girls as their profile pics
no one ever calls them trannies, just nerds
why the double standard?
Fuck, I just realized that I forgot to check the "Everything to one person" box. Right, whoever wins the gunslinger gets the whole thing. If you win anything but the gunslinger you get nothing
I get that you're upset, but you should've been smarter and double checked if you fucked anything up or missed something
You didn't and you fucked up. Be mad with yourself and your mistakes
>dude you forgot to draw scout
>oh shit, sorry, I'll do it right away. scout's the black one, isn't he?
>no, that's soldier I think
>oh. then scout is the one that looks like a young conan o'brien, right?
>yeah, I think so
That isn't even comparable. Dude made a mistake, clarified that he made a mistake and that's that. You don't even enter raffles anyway, and you'd have to be even more juvenile than, well, you to throw a fit because you didn't win.
>hightower as pyro
>degreaser, shotgun, powerjack
>kill another pyro
>he had a reserve shooter with prof ks
>take it... just to try how is the effect since I'm poor
>start killing everyone in one shot
>I'm... enjoying it
Guys how am I supossed to go back to the shotgun now? I don't want to be that one pyro.
Those are rules for public raffles, private raffles for smaller groups are obviously more flexible. You aren't an admin, so I don't understand why you're making such a big deal about it. I mean, 4chan has rules about offtopic posts, yet you shitpost all the time, and you don't even play TF2 anymore, so I don't know why you even bother coming here.
if you're already playing with degreaser and powerjack you might as well go full austin
13. Do not use avatars or attach signatures to your posts
I've definitely never signed the end of my posts. I post an avatar once every other blue moon
Pshh, that's silly. That ain't it at all
As with almost every other weapon in the game, extremely situational.
It's good if an engie is near a bunch of buildings, since by the time he removes all the sappers some of them will have downgraded, and just sapping them would only lead to him removing the sappers and fixing the buildings in a few swings.
yeah, you totally don't ever post avatars EVER
those drawings of your "i'm totally not a weeb guys" yotsubane OC donut steel aren't avatars
>l-loadouts aren't avatars
when you've posted each one at least 100 times to the general i'm pretty sure it becomes a representative image avatar of you
and yes, people hate you because of your actions, that's how the world works
get off your high horse, you're another human just like anyone else
I see two avatars posted. One being a proper reaction image to the discussion, the other one showing "I draw my own shit"
Loadouts aren't avatars, though. They're loadouts. Otherwise, I'd be one of those shitters that uses their loadout as their avatar. That's representative of my Medic. Pyro to Pyro, Engie to Engie. They're not avatars, though. They're loadouts
Except I'm a human with tons of blessings and a wonderful life, so that makes me tons better than most :)
i haven't responded to him in months, might as well go for it now since other people can't seem to follow suit

The time you need to chase a sanic speed DR Spy and kill it.
Use Huntsman? You can't fail that. Honestly.
To use a Sniper rifle you'll need precision and leading. That skill grows in time. Try to use Soldier and Heavy to get ahold of that feeling. If you want to have something to practice; take a peek at the legs of your target to predict their movement before taking the shot. Also remember, panicing and strafing away before taking the shot causes bullet to slightly deviate away from your sights.
Have they fixed pubs yet? Or do you have to use that awful matchmaking system that promotes queues, pubstomping and team stacking?
Why have they done this? I don't remember ever asking
>hmmm I'd love to wait to play any 5cp I like, just to be thrown into an unbalanced team and to have no way of having it balanced because autobalance is gone!
Community servers are full of 32player cancer and instaspawn and other awful shit, they aren't picking the slack left by no more normal pubs.
What was wrong with allowing me to use the server browser and jump on the maps I liked to play? What was wrong with letting people play on the same map for hours on Valve servers? Overwatch truly killed this game, because they went full retard copying shitty ideas that only made pubs worse.
Maybe it's for the best.
>What was wrong with allowing me to use the server browser and jump on the maps I liked to play? What was wrong with letting people play on the same map for hours on Valve servers?
i loves jumping from server to server and sometimes visiting some super obscure map with like 10 people on it and dicking around
now if i pick the obscure map that i wanted it will most likely put me into a 20 minute queue
and why dont we even get to pick our side
i love playing on blue
>people ask for matchmaking
>people ask for autobalance to be removed
>valve adds matchmaking
>valve removes autobalance
>valve keeps community servers working the way they used before just in case people don't like the new thing
>people ask for autobalance
>people want matchmaking removed
wow, surprise, people are fucking retarded
matchmaking was only supposed to be for competitive
why would i want competitive pubs
do you have any idea how retarded that is
maybe the reason people are asking for autobalance and matchmaking removed is because valve completely fucked everything up because they got 3 incompetent fucks working there
>blizzard gives the exact patch day 1 or 2 weeks before
>has a test environment if something really doesn't work
>valve just throws a patch whenever they please, featuring the beheading of the claidhedmor, nerfing heavies melees like the bear fists even more, giving a shove nobody asked for to the shortstop, removing the good sidegrade of having 15 more health for vulnerability to a shitty heal on hit to the pocket pistol, etc
You'd think valve would step their game up after 9 years
Maybe they're being cheap?
With this new system, they don't need to keep the servers up all the time, only when there are enough people to form a match. So it's cheaper upkeep I suppose.
Just my crazy theory.
pretty retarded, that's why it's not in the game
they just gave you a way of easily playing a single match with a fixed team, and probably with friends if you're into that
>maybe the reason people are asking for autobalance and matchmaking removed is because valve completely fucked everything up
there's literally nothing wrong with matchmaking that comes from matchmaking itself, and again, if you don't like it, the server browser and community servers are right there
>add shiny badges to casual play for no reason
>every game becomes a black box+conch soldier with 2 pockets up his ass
>or your average ugc plastic team partying up and shitting on your pablo.fernandez2004 teammates
>people grinding their ass off because of shiny fucking badges that dont even give any rewards
I have literally met no one who plays bb + conch when there's pocket medics on his team. I have met literally no one who grinds ranks in casual. Almost every casual game I have played has been fairly even, though of course there are your rolls and your stomps, but that's just TF2 for you.
But I don't want to :(
Ze pub medic always pockets the guy with the shiny stuff.
>implying someone would accept that trade.

Ok I guess
I never asked for matchmaking
Autobalance was a good thing in pubs, where team stacking is an issue.It's annoying to be autobalanced but it was a necessary evil. Now valve servers are literally queue to get 2 pubstomps. That's not fun at all.
>just use community servers
No thank you, I don't wanna play on 32man, insta spawn dustbol, fucking shit.
Valve has killed pubs.
>I never asked for matchmaking
I never asked for hats either.
>Autobalance was a good thing
incredible hindsight, lad
>No thank you, I don't wanna play on 32man, insta spawn dustbol, fucking shit.
Then play in servers with less players, on maps that aren't dustbowl?
I mean, it's not matchmaking's fault you're fucking retarded.
>I never asked for hats either.
nice false dichotomy, dumb shit
Nice to admit that Valve has no clue what they're doing when they removed autobalance from their pubs.
I can't find the 5cp maps that I want, without 32man servers and instant spawn. Are you that fucking dense to not get what I said?
So Valve has effectively killed pubs, because I could find a coldfront with normal settings here and there in Valve pubs, and now I can't. I don't want to play degrootkeep in a pony server with 30 people, and with some retard running at 90 miles per hour with his horsefucker fetish of an avatar.
I can't even start the game anymore. I've tried removing everything from the custom folder, deleting the graphics script, removing launch options, reinstalling the game, completely clearing off any trace of the game on my hard drive and reinstalling again for the second time, and nothing works. It just crashes on start up even with a fresh, vanilla install.
Google doesn't help, anyone have any ideas?
you might want to google that, it doesn't mean what you mean it thinks. my opinion on hats still stands
please stop being mad at video games, son
>no clue what they're doing when they removed autobalance from their pubs.
they removed what the community complained about, that seems sensible to me. They can't cater to every single special snowflakes who thinks is better at game design than them.
>I can't find the 5cp maps that I want, without 32man servers and instant spawn.
Live somewhere better then. Or host your own. I find the maps I want to play all the time using matchmaking, btw.
> Are you that fucking dense to not get what I said?
It's hard to understand retards sometimes, but I'm trying my hardest with you.
I never said anything pro hats, so your response is just retarded, really.
They shouldn't listen to absolutely everything the community says, autobalance was there for a reason, and I appreciated it even before the update that ruined pubs. Shoudl they listen to the retards that would want 32 man players on valve servers? I mean why not? The community always knows it all, right?
>move somewhere else
Yeah sure, I'll just not play the game since they have effectively killed it for me.
I'm not alone in this, I've heard plenty of people who used to enjoy how pubs were before, and the number of TF2 players have declined.
sorry for the late i was trying to get it to work for a while but it was being stubborn and i was finally able to get it working congrats
btw is there something about this i should know or nah
who the h*ck do you take me for? a faggot that skips rolls?
>btw is there something about this i should know or nah
I got a question, why does everyone think the game needs to be made for competitive now?
Seriously, I'm so sick of fun weapons being killed because they're not good for comp, why the fuck does this happen. Why does that whiny little niche get all the attention, they already got one shitty update made for them. Give the traders something other than more stupid hats.
It's true, the game needs pubs to survive, did people who play on competitive started playing competitively? Even those who play comp a lot sometimes play more laid back on pubs. Without pubs the game would just die.
In fact, can any game survive without pubs and only competitive matches? Can any of them hold the interest of the public solely with competitive?
Seems like a lot of people think so. Its sad man, I wish Valve would listen to people saying competitive will kill the game. Or at least cripple the player base and end up with less people buying keys.
>can any game survive without pubs and only competitive matches?
melee does this
the only people interested in melee are comp players and people who want to play comp
>why does everyone think the game needs to be made for competitive now?
it has more to do with standards
if you balance the game around pubs, casual players will be happy but the pro players will hate it
if you balance it around comp, pro players will be happy and casual players will continue to play the game the way they always have
if anything, every weapon being equally viable would be better for the trading scene since, rather than buying strange pro ks versions of about a dozen weapons, you'll want to get flashy expensive versions of every weapon in the game
Ok, I'm pretty sure I'm being memed on.
What is wrong with casual matchmaking?
I enjoy the game way more now that we have it.
It's a bug chaser mark
I have no idea where these fucking casuals are coming from, but casual mode is perfectly fine as-is. It's just the same as quickplay, except now you probably won't join matches in progress and are more likely to get a fresh round every time you hit search.
Personal taste, but I really hate playing scout.
Its just really boring for me, he can't do anything cool aside from jumping around and that one cleaver combo. Meanwhile pyro can detonator jump, annoy people with the scorchshot, surprise phlog, and put people to shame with the volcano fragment. And make "Pro" soldiers really sad.
Its more fun than just running around getting kills.
>What is wrong with casual matchmaking?
No autobalance leads to shitty uneven teams often, ragequitters leave a 6vs12 team situation
shitty system that throws you into maps you don't want to play, even if you exclude them from your list
Valve pubs just worked before, what was wrong with them?
Can't keep playing the same map for more than 2 rounds, if it's a stomp, or 2 stomps, you barely get to play the game, and go back to a queue.
Community servers can't pick up the slack of no Valve pubs
I remember someone showing declining TF2 player numbers after the matchmaking, wasn't it true the number of people playing declined? It sure seems like it to me.
>Wait to find a match
>Wait for that one to end because you joined to the rematch screen
>Find a new match
>Can't stay in the server through rounds if not enough people vote to
>Disproportionately high amount of crybaby tryhards
Also I'm not sure but I think they disabled sprays, I haven't seen one on any attempt to use casual.
>Competitive is killing TF2
Nice to know you're just retarded.
>Unironically using the term tryhard
Also, it barely takes 30 seconds to queue into a fresh(most of the time) server.
I actually like joining fresh games, but there wasn't really anything wrong per se with Valve servers. Using the browser did get me into the bad habit of only playing one or two maps on a certain game mode, though.
I don't think competitive is killing TF2, it's Valve with that stupid update. Did comp people asked for casual matchmaking? I'm sure many in the comp arena also hate not having old Valve pubs back, they can see the new system introduced wait times and unbalanced teams. If anything they would realize how dumb it is after playing casual matchmaking and noticing how bad it is.
>No autobalance leads to shitty uneven teams often, ragequitters leave a 6vs12 team situation
It's a small price to pay to get a huge benefit - playing a full match with the same team. And if your team is just bad, just take the lose or disconnect, next match is waiting. Autobalance only makes sense in servers where matches last for 20 minutes. Casual mnatches are short enough that they end if you're getting stomped.
I've never had to wait more than a minute to get connected
>shitty system that throws you into maps you don't want to play, even if you exclude them from your list
Never happened to me so far.
>Valve pubs just worked before, what was wrong with them?
Instead of seeing a pub with a map you don't want to play, you now get matched with people that want the same map as you and the server accomodates, How is that not better?
>Can't keep playing the same map for more than 2 rounds, if it's a stomp, or 2 stomps, you barely get to play the game, and go back to a queue.
>Community servers can't pick up the slack of no Valve pubs
I think they're both coexisting fine, at least where I live.
>Wait to find a match
as opposed to using the server browser to find a server that you like instead of pony rp/ trade/ instarespawn
>Wait for that one to end because you joined to the rematch screen
That's kinda shitty and my only complaint about mm, but it doesn't happen a lot.
>Find a new match
>Can't stay in the server through rounds if not enough people vote to
The rematch vote could be greatly improved if they let you vote to scramble team or not, and to switch map or not.
>Disproportionately high amount of crybaby tryhards
Pubstompers have been a thing since the game inception bruv.
>Also I'm not sure but I think they disabled sprays, I haven't seen one on any attempt to use casual
Yeah, I hope they're not gonna bring paid sprays.
>I actually like joining fresh games
>caring about the score rather how you and your team is playing after you joined
The game is pretty much fresh after a round ends.
>Using the browser did get me into the bad habit of only playing one or two maps on a certain game mode, though
Isn't that your fault? You could always hop into another server in the old system. Or were you enjoying playing those few maps?
hi, i stopped playing tf2 in 2013 due to reasons because military. what'd i miss? also, this still a meme?
My 12 y/o brother understands how to play the maps he wants by simply unchecking boxes. If you're less mentally capable than a 12 year old kid, you can't blame that on matchmaking.
I'll keep enjoying the game, go play in your pony rp community servers
In a way they did. If they hadn't asked for matchmaking in the first place and just used community servers to do it themselves it wouldn't have existed.
Why don't these people just use community servers by the way? If Skial can exist I'm sure competitive leagues can make their own structured servers en mass without problems. Then Valve could just make that a whole tab in quickplay nice and simple for them, they know these things exist and already make medals for them.
I get screwed by joining into the rematch screen a lot. Hell most days I have deal with it a few times and my internet ain't great so it takes a few minutes before a new match is found. And I wasn't talking about pubstompers, I'm talking about the people who will yell and rant at the team for being bad or scold a medic who won't kill themselves because he wanted to take on the entire enemy team. The worst though are the assholes who will take the time to tell people just making conversation to shut up instead of muting them.
And if paid sprays come out I'm going to Washington and punching everyone at Valve.
I wish, but cosmetics have gotten terrible now. To give a general idea: Weapons have skins, theres way too many unusuals, weapons with shitty skins can be unusual and have visible indicators of being strange, literal cats are a cosmetic, and halloween hats are year round and paid for now.
The whole medals thing is so hilarious because it's what, a shitty experience bar and a worthless "medal"? What's there to gain?
There's that saying that you don't change a winning team. That's what they did to Valve server pubs. I don't remember people complaining how bad they were at all, this new system introduced waiting times, awful matches with zero concept of balance at all, and a worthless medal that everyone gets for playing, along with some shitty ranking system that is utterly meaningless.
Wasn't talking about the weird casual medals, I meant the actual cosmetics that get added for different competitive things.
But the ones in casual do serve a purpose, it strokes the egotistical 'always right' attitude like half of the comp players tend to have that make them feel like they're better than everyone else and can say what the game needs.
For an example look at that benny guy. Boring as fuck to watch but he'll jerk himself off about how great he is and how he knows what the game needs despite being so disconnected from the majority of the player base that he thought soldier needed a buff.
But I mean come on, clearly soldier does. He can't even cloak or build sentries yet!
Soldier is the weakest class in 6s, dude. He's only really strong on pubs because morans don't know how to avoid splash damage. You can't claim a class is OP just because 90% of the playerbase is unskilled.
So instead we should make him stronger so the 10% gets to be happy and the 90% gets to be even more miserable. Great.
Modern game design kids, fuck the average player you make that shit only for the highest skill level and anyone who doesn't have the time or interest to get up there can just fuck themselves. Because who needs a growing player base when you can have a hostile community.
Can Valve at least do something about teams going from 12 players to 5 after a team loses the first round? It might help if new players are funneled in quickly, but the longer the teams are this drastically unbalanced, the harder it'll be for the losing team to win which just perpetuates the cycle.
That 90% will keep crying either way, most of the people who play this game are just plain bad, and buffing an already weak class would barely affect them when they already get ruined by said class. You gotta learn to ignore the majority, because most of them know dick all shit about what they're talking about and listen to the people who are actually invested enough to spend 10k hours playing the game.
>Soldier is the weakest class in 6s
utter bullshit, Soldiers frequently win MGE tournaments vs Scouts, and Demoman was the latest one to receive a nerf and is the real tier 0
soldier is only weaker than scout when you run gboats full-time and utterly refuse to swap to shotgun (and all teams at i58 were running shotgun soldier)
Even then lets just acknowledge that there are more soldier mains than anything else.
People like that is why I say you shouldn't balance for competitive or high skill levels. They're disconnected and think they're always right. I ain't perfect but something seems more right to balance for the people actually playing the game and not for the little niche of high skill players who can't just suck it up and deal with it. They've done it for this long, I don't see why they suddenly have to force their changes on everyone else.
MGE represents how well classes do against each other 1v1
how else are you going to measure which class is stronger anon
saying soldier is the weakest class is disingenuous when he can beat both scouts and demomen 1v1 pretty easily
yeah i don't think the nerf was massive but it was just enough to push him into "weakest class in 6s" position. that said I think he's pretty well balanced and still fulfils a useful role that makes him worth keeping
Medic is the most useful for obvious reasons
Demoman has the highest sustained damage output
Scout has the highest burst damage output
Soldier is sort of a middle ground, where he isn't great at any one role, but he's not bad at anything either. There's a reason when people off-class, it's always a Soldier that changes.
So the Scouts sometimes switch to Pyro and Engineer to defend last, the Pocket will occasionally go Heavy on defense and the Roamer can play Sniper or Spy when he needs a pick, but you'll never see a 6s team switch off Demoman and Medic.
>Soldier is sort of a middle ground, where he isn't great at any one role, but he's not bad at anything either.
but isn't that exactly what he's supposed to be? He's also the best pocket class to have on the go, since demos have the obvious weakness to scouts and scouts can't sustain damage
>team is too trash to deal with the countless foot shooting soldiers on the enemy team
>can barely cap points
>i just want to have fun and dick around
why is so hard to have fun in this game
sometimes i wanna dick around with a huntsman or widowmaker or blutsauger but then i get a retarded team and always end up having to go scout or soldier
>Demoman counters Soldier
>and Soldier is about 50/50 with Scout
as already established soldiers frequently beat scouts in mge
a shotgun soldier with 200HP vs a scattergun scout with 125HP
>Soldier is sort of a middle ground, where he isn't great at any one role, but he's not bad at anything either.
Gee golly, almost like he's supposed to be the jack of all trades. Surely he needs that buff to be a master of all trades.
>you and your friend starts kickin butt in a pub
Anyone know why mods almost never have a backpack icon like pic related anymore?
Also anyone know some servers that allow mods.
mostly all of the community servers allow them
Most mods do come with bp icons now.
I would think more come with bp icons now that valve decided it was too much work for them and they items have to be submitted with bp icons.
Don't trade much atm.
Probably a good amount though as its a "chance at a good effect" item.
Really? I just got done putting on a ton but only really old ones have them. Even then only a couple.
Maybe thats just from gamebanana ones? Is there a new source or something?
Really? I've always used gamebanana, never seemed like a bad place.
Well until Valve decided shitty skins were good and even more fucking people decided that putting random colors up counted as good content.
Gamebanana was the go to place for mods a long time. Its mosty gone unused by the older mod makers. Still some good shit there every once in a while. Modding for tf2 as a whole has died down as of late, especially with valve seemingly trying to kill the game.
Also, try out mods.tf
Only really used for cosmetics, but all the mods are the workshop zip uploaded and then repacked to replace item. all the items have backpack icons.
Guess I'll be checking them out then.
Bit sad that modding has gone to shit too. Its amazing that we got hundred of shitty hats just because Valve might add those (Even though they reek of modders who don't know art styles). Wish they put that energy in to regular old mods, weapons, and maps.
When was the last time a creative map came out like Cyberpunk or a new Mario Kart? Or cp_sandvich.
New version with the new Halloween effects, grouped families, bigger pictures. Figuring this year's halloween unboxing rules are true going forward all ween effects older than 2014 can't be unboxed, so they're stuck in crazies only even if a few of them suck ass.
The Cyberpunk with Jet Set Radio barfed all over everything? Map seems like it was constructed in a vacuum, shops are too small for more than one person to be in.
Most people don't do it because they like to anymore.
Most people that do stuff do it because they want money.
People like neo and void and shit can do whatever they want as they are going to get items in anyway, but most smaller people have either moved on or stick to doing gimicky hats to try to get them in.
In the end it doesn't really matter though as it seems like valve just goes through and picks the highest rated items a couple days before the update is due to drop and adds those.
Which inevitably end up being from the same handful of people that have 400+ followers and get 4k+ votes on most of their uploads.
If valve were to take a more hands on approach again I am sure modding would come back, but they are too busy with doter and Cs:go to do anything with tf2.
Hopefully with 2017 being the 10th anniversary of tf2 it will get better. But I doubt we will get to like 2012-2014 again.
You know what effect I have never seen in game?
I am pretty sure its in game, but have literally never seen a hat with it.
There are supposedly like 200+ hats with according to backpack.tf.
That was part of the charm for me. I have a love for shitty things that have heart or interest behind it and not just memes.
Can't argue with that I guess. Wish they'd just hand the game over to some other company already, nobody could fuck it much worse.
Though maybe I should start making shit. Be that one crazy old man reminding creators what making something for fun was.
>nebula will never be on anything but quarantine crates.
At least it looks good on Corona
Why is Tesla Coil crazies only when you can get one for less than 25 keys?
More than 500 tesla coil hats exist. Same with the Starstorms. These things are going to become the new nuts and bolts
I feel like they should just make a team of people that their job is to pick out maps and cosmetics from the workshop to add to the game.
Have an update every month at least thats just some hats and maps, with weapons being at least once a year.
A lot of people don't like a billion hats, but at least it would be something. A sign that they still care about the game in some sense.
I still do most of my shit for fun as well. Working on a mad max type set for sniper right now. Mostly cause making items to try to get them in is a waste of time and I might as well make shit I like.
Yeah, pretty much all of those hats are too sci-fi to actually be worn in any sets, so you won't see the linked effects unless somebody has gone out of their way to make a good set for em . Or is shameless. That works too.
I build trade maps, and systems for those trade maps. Built a fairly nice boxing ring with a sick scoreboard, using only hammer entities:
Tesla's the breakout star of this halloween, Neutron isn't noticable enough, and the stars are kind of ho-hum. If you were unboxing for hat effects Tesla was what you were after. If you want a good hat with tesla on it I advise you to get it while you can, especially if the creepy crawly crates only unbox ween 2016 on the hats that are in that crate. If that is the case tesla may be, outside of that brief window which has already past, limited to case hats like 2014 and 2015.
Eh maybe but honestly I've grown to hate all the hats in tf2. They've gotten way out of hand, seriously you can wear cats, a cardboard pirate hat/beard, and the medic has a hairy bare chest. Just, why?
It needs to be reigned in, its bad enough so many cosmetics and weapons skins make the game run worse but its worse that we have to deal with 800 people's art styles mashing together with a ton of random particles. I can't even remember the last time I saw a set of cosmetics that made me think 'Huh that looks cool' instead of 'Jesus christ thats a lot of particle' or 'Well that must've cost a lot, looks like ass though'.
Literally every hat in the game has at least one tesla coil effect. Not to mention the over 100 for each of the creepy crawly hats. I don't think anyone needs to rush for tesla coil. Its a pretty underwelming effect in person. Poor mans Time Warp really
Most people who own unusuals are trying so hard to cover up their buyers remorse that they'll wear any combination of hats as long as they can get their -3 effect- on, no matter how bad the hats look together, and no matter how bad the effects look together.
Most of the hats aren't nice enough to own unusuals of, I generally don't buy unusuals unless they're very rare or I can use them in a set.
Sounds like a ripe investment market once the next thing to spend money on appears and people move to sell them to get the new hotness.
I hate the gimmicky ones like the cats, or the banana hat. Or the super halloweeny duck cap and balloonicorn mask.
Which are always the rarest too.
Which might be an attempt to keep them rare and unused, but then they are most the most flaunted and sought after because they are rare. Especially as they have tiers now.
If they let a team of community members take the reins hopefully it would fix that.
Of course, it would have to be comprised of people that don't have an interest in hats. And really, in the end I am sure that a committee of community members would be more hassle than its worth, but in a perfect world hats would need to pass a group vote instead of being 1 or 2 guys just picking whatever.
The idea would be though if they added in the same number of hats they have been, but every month, they wouldn't need to add stupid ass ugly gimmicks to get people to open boxes. Not that they wouldn't still add them to get more of your sheckles, but one can dream.
>they waste your invulnerability über by retreating or chasing meaningless targets instead of shooting down sentry or killing enemy medic
>success or not, you will not have a second medic ever.
>break the whole defense single handedly with DR or CnD, while your whole team sits in the spawn getting slaughtered
>now you have 5 spies, have fun pushing cart or capping the points
If they're complaining or doing nothing, best action is to leave the damned server.
Try this first, may be related. Secondly, go through Windows Troubleshooting to see if that fixes the problem because I heard that fixes those pesky DOOM4 crashes.
Lastly, I suggest you to tweak graphics card and look into in-game resolution (.ini file) before you try to start it.

There you go.
I know my chart is crap and needs a redone, I'm just fucking lazy.
>collectors for shit weps
now why would someone cripple themselves like this
I'll bust out kekking if someone uses a collectors blutsauger here
I don't regret them, they're worth over sixteen times what I paid for them now.
I owned an aussie blut for a while, I really liked the daffodil sheen rolling over the black parts of the blut, so I plan on getting another at some point, but I do have one better.
soldier has the most health, (40 more than demo when buffed) and can be extremely mobile and have hitscan. basically so perfectly well rounded that a good soldier player can carry way better than a good scout or demo could. also a lot of teams have a scout switch to sniper, not a roamer
Small reminder that there is a raffle you could be rigging right now
>tfw 70€ in steam
>tfw I'm not interesed on any game atm
>tfw I'm just going to spend it all on tf2
Feels good tb h
They forgot they existed, along with rd_asteroid and pl_cactuscanyon(rip). Nice how they didn't forget fucking Hydro or Degroot Keep, though, which should have been forgotten, along with pAss Time and Mannpower.
>suck a cock JUST FOR FUN
You don't focus on the cart unless there's like 20 seconds left and you're the only one up on your team, in which case your best bet is to make a suicide rush for the cart. Alternatively, stop playing Payload. I dunno what it is about that game mode, but it attracts way more shitters than any other game mode, and is even more susceptible to the "one actually good player carries the entire defense" than KOTH or 5CP or even CTF.
Nigga, he currently has a raffle going where he is giving away an engineer loadout.
And just last thread said that he gets items to use for like a week then raffle.
I am fine with him buying shit to raffle, but why even enter raffles if hes just going to give it away in less than a month?
I guess hes entitled to whatever dumb shit he wants as long as hes not hurting other people, but it just makes him a middle man for raffling things.
Entering raffles, to get items to raffle is a waste of time.
And fuck off with your "im being oppressed" bullshit vibri.
Just tell your Pyro to focus on them. They'll get the "signal".
A few options:
1. Leave the damned server.
2. Go Medic and heal DR-spies when they're disguised.
3. Go Scout or Pyro and try to have fun.
Now, as a rebuttal to being asked why you would enter a raffle to get an item that you would then re raffle, you raffle more of said item.
Nigga, I am fucking with you. Jesus christ why are you getting so worked up over 4chan? Its not like we are on reddit where you have to defend your good name. Is it because vib ribbion is a dumb game?
I'm not worked up, I just thought it would be funny
Here's something I don't think we've discussed: What's your hitsound? And by extension, what's your killsound?
Currently my hitsound is star_ calling for jerma in a weird voice and my killsound is star_ saying "oh yeah"
>uncle dane new video
>my fav gunslinger loadout
>with Widowmaker and Pistol
aw yis, i was bored enough already.
download the youtube video with only the sound effect (or cut the video for only the sound)
make sure its a .wav file if not, turn it into one
rename that shid into killsound.wav
bam you got a spicy meatball
>leave to take care of something before checking tf2g
>miss a raffle train with low entries
Demomains BLOWN THE FUCK OUT
>non-leeches don't join raffles
>no matter what's being raffled
youre fooling nobody
you seem to have a very personal interest in how internet strangers see you, why is that?
Must say, Valve always knew how to do events whether it be summer, halloween, christmas, etc. Every class gets a ton of cosmetics, weapons, and a kick-ass gamemode. Godspeed Gaben!
PLEAS SOMEBODY BUY MY GUN (39€) THERE IS 21h and 30min LEFT ON THE Space Hulk: Deathwing PROMOTION!
who are you quoting
giving a shit =/= joining
crying about missing some stupid cheap raffles = giving a shit (making you a leech)
and dont move the goalposts, i could be talking about your strange need of getting free videogame items or your necessity to defend your internet status as a """non-leech""" so stick to the argument or fuck off
>giving a shit (making you a leech)
this definition makes no sense and i pointed out why
then you became very defensive and touchy, is this a sensitive issue for you? im not trying to hurt your feelings, honest
pointing that out technically isn't moving the goalposts either
