literally how? i lose once every 6 games if my board is any indicator. if you don't complain griefers will start playing eventually out of boredom and ironically bots are more useful than most players, who will pocket without leaving as medics, or track scouts with a heavy so well

Also I think I convinced a kid to study engineering.
>if you don't complain griefers will start playing eventually out of boredom
That doesn't sound like a greifer
>ironically bots are more useful than most players
No, bots might as well be AFK. One match I had was me and another player vs 6 bots and we won easily as an engie and sniper. Bots are shit.
6 bots? yes, absolutely fucking shit, this is true.
5 humans and 1 bot? i would suggest you be wary. bots biggest issue is a lack of awareness, which the humans would support the bot (so you couldn't use those braindead strats). if the bot becomes demoman, heavy, or medic he can be a very good asset to the team and maybe get even 30+ points which you cant even rely on most players to hit
I hope they re-roll my secret santa. He just told me "lmao".
Mine was a real poorfag. Like not-even-have-all-weapons-but-somehow-a-shit-hat poorfag.
He told me any gift would be fine, but that was clearly a cry for help. I'm sorry about his giftee tho.
I bought him a hat for each class, the weapons he was missing, and he told me he really liked pyro, so I got him a skinned flamethrower.
I think he'll be happy.
Geel wouldn't let me give more than like 5 things, so I gave him a key and some craft hats. His BP is about the same value as mine, like $150, so it's not that bad. He said he'd be happy with any item signed by me.
No one to organize it, plus no one to really participate since this thread's so dead. Last year was just sad, desu. Mostly 1.33 ref craft hats.
Yeah, the storage limit of 5 should have been increased for this, but I guess storage is not cheap with a million users.
I agreed to send him the items I couldn't fit after the event is done. Sort of like a retarded advent calendar. The "secret" santa stops being secret I guess, but whatever.
Who u? I'm not giving my keys to some who.
I was planning on participating in both the secret santa and making a raffle, but it looks like only the raffle is happening now.

I don't see what you mean, anon
Everytime you post your loadout it's god awful. Go do unboxing or something, your taste is so shit to you be able to have expensive stuff.
Why do you need too shitty scattergun skins? You not even got ebin's own on the first one.
you got me
After a million years playing this game, I just noticed the pyro's flamethrower "trigger" is a part of a gas dispenser.
I just noticed that he uses to fingers to pull the trigger.
God works in mysterious ways.
Puffy vulva don't respond to my post.
why do people invest so much into stranges just to FARM on them
i donnot understand
>only post from my giftee was asking how i got my cool shit
>recipient is a russian that tried to hide his but he has a unique name that has literally one result
I feel like this crimbus is gonna be dumb for me more than normal.
I just noticed that he likely put it together with parts from a gas pump, propane cannister, and a muffler. Secret meaning behind the pyro?????he used to work at a gas station???????????but what does it mean?????????????????
I farm my flamethrower when i was 15yo. Now i just MEH at everyone who have ebin strange digits but don't have any strange parts. Because it's probably just farmed.

Nah, it's always was too late. This game was made for kids who havent touched tf2 in her golden age.

50 levels left. Just 50. And it's over.
Refined are free to get, but you have to spend sheckles to get keys.
Of course they are going to go up in price. And being that keys have been around for damn near 7 years its a shock they are still that low.
how come the cleaver is ranked lowest in owned and equipped for scout secondaries on all the stat sites? every server has 1 throwing a cleaver whether he has a sandman or not
>noisemakers that can be recharged by adding metal into them
>collector's weapons continue to work as chemistry sets after being created and track how many of that weapon you've added to it
>craftable name tags/description tags/mvm tickets
Doesn't matter what scale you want to put on it, it's still a terrible idea.
The bread box seemed to be successful. Shit reskins that nobody wanted, but everybody wanted in strange before the event ended.
Here's my final solution to the problem of inflation.
Remember the golden wrench event? Something like that.
Let's say it's the pyro update, and for whatever reason the writers come up to, engi can't use his crafting table anymore, so all crafting is done in pyro's furnace. (it'll probably be some sort of toy pink oven fused with some industrial looking shit, something that fits lolsowacky pyro)
Every time you try to craft a hat during the event, there's a small chance (i.e. something like the golden wrench thingie that wasn't actually random) that the crafting will fail and instead you'll get a "scrap weapon" which is basically a reskin of the stock melee weapons that looks like a partially melted clump of scrap, vaguely shaped like the weapons they resemble.
There's only 900 of them. 100 scrap bats, 100 scrap shovels, and so on. They get some flying nuts and bolts kinda effect when you kill someone with them, or maybe the giblets look like MvM gibs, I don't know.
No devaluation of unusuals, and more rare items for you to circlejerk over
the problem is that no one is going to actually do the first two without any sort of profit incentive
craftable name/description tags would be a godsend and is actually a good idea
craftable mvm tickets is a mixed bag, because it would have to be low enough to actually be viable but would also fuck up the cost of killstreak weapons pretty hard, and valve would also have to increase the rarity of the golden weapons otherwise those would be low cost too
>without any sort of profit incentive
people bought $100 rings just so they could announce to the game that they did
it's another way to show off your wealth, which no autist can pass up even if they can't profit off of it in the future
It's horrible, I miss being able to stay in a server for 1 hour
who the fuck thought casual matchmaking was a good idea? needs to be fired immediately, the current system favors team stacking and waiting in queues
Playing soldier when an idiot Pyro main tries to 1v1 me, I JUST JUMP OUT AND SHOOT DOWN ON HIM. Like I would 1v1 the most aids class in the game. I do the same thing when I see a heavy waddling around with 500 health. NICE CLASS EVERYONE CAN JUST AVOID YOU. daily reminder that Pyro engie and heavy mains are everything wrong with this game.

Why wouldn't they save money on a bunch of empty servers.
>>not nearly identical, except now you can't pick and choose your teams so there's a chance it will actually be fair
>except now you can't pick and choose your teams so there's a chance it will actually be fair
are you retarded
not to mention that you can't join a friend during a match
mym killed any sort of casual vibe valve servers had and that was the only thing going for them
It's literally a free game you idiot. Not to mention its past popularity. It'd be hard for it to die even if Valve actively made the game worse,
oh wait they did and it's still been "alive" for like 5 months
Remember to take it easy
If there are few people playing at a certain moment in the new system, less strain is put on their servers, wouldn't that save money?
I mean why else would they keep this broken mess of a "system"
>I meant the fucking pyro update, not the map
>Also meet the pyro, the backslash was ridicolous
The backlash was ridiculous because in the PYROmania update the PYRO got a single useless weapon while scout got a good weapon and another pistol, sniper got okay weapons, and the soldier got the baddy's bazooka.
Pyro got jack fucking shit in an update that was supposed to be entirely about them
What's really so broken about it? It's a working system for staring a new game, in which you cannot stack on the winning team after you find out your team sucks.
1. But anon, I'm getting rolled and my team is leaving!
This was already a problem before the current system came out.
2. But anon I can't join games in progress and hide in spec until I can join the winning side!
That's great Dennis the Menace, kindly fuck off.
3. But anon I can't join games in progress and help the losing team rout a formerly superior force!
Of course you can, Johnny, and Valvepubs need your help. Just queue up and you'll be sent to a server in need of relief!
I don't really remember any meet the pyro backlash, I don't go on reddit though. Pyrovision was pretty cool, great fun to fuck about with. Scorch shot's one of my favorite pyro secondaries :/
>I don't really remember any meet the pyro backlash
There was some meet the pyro backlash but the video itself wasn't that bad. They were never going to give any in-depth detail of their backstory and it was just a let down after the really great Meet Thes.
>1. But anon, I'm getting rolled and my team is leaving!
>This was already a problem before the current system came out.
Except in the old system if the difference got 2 or worse it'd autobalance the game so that, even if it might make the game slightly worse for those two people, the entire game isn't invalidated for all potential 24 people. Autobalance wasn't a great solution but it was miles better than "Well just wait for more people to show up (and lose until they do)"
>3. But anon I can't join games in progress and help the losing team rout a formerly superior force!
>Of course you can, Johnny, and Valvepubs need your help. Just queue up and you'll be sent to a server in need of relief!
This doesn't happen
Dudes, you all know most Pyro players either trolls, furries or complete tards/kids. So, love your Engineer and locate his deployed Dispenser before going out there and get scorched to death. Recovery is a thing, prevention is another. If you wanna catch Pyros off guard you have to check upper floors more often.
When Pyros don't have height advantage they'll be Sentry or Sniper bait. If you are positively tired of them team up as an Engineer with nest Sniper.
The threat alone will make them switch instead of clutching the fight.
Try to type "over here" at the Teamsay line next time.
>24 ammo left
I shiggy diggy
Old system had autobalance, the current system favors teamstacking, people get pissed and 6vs12 is a reality now. I guess it's better for people who want to team up in pubs, but matches are far more one sided now.
I didn't have to wait a second to play in the old system, waiting 2-5mins for a fucking casual pub session is awful. there was always a valve pub with a map I played before, now it's this mess. Can anyone name one benefit of this casual matchmaking compared to how it was before?
It's clear to me it only introduced waiting minutes and worse matches overall.
Autobalance is the bonerkiler that comes before absolute disconnect.
Worst when you're the only good player on your team and now you're unintentionally rolling with a stack of 4 good players vs nobodies.
I was using voice to get his attention as well, and nobody has time to type while still chasing the guy down trying to save his life. Doing that is the same as giving up.
Starting up matches. Before you had to rely on there being a match already, especially painful on unpopular maps or modes.
>Before you had to rely on there being a match already
You say "rely" as if there wasn't several going on at all times.
Now you have an (at the minimum) minute wait time to get into a match
>Now you have an (at the minimum) minute wait time to get into a match
are you guys playing a different game than i am because i never have to wait that long even when i play at like 3 in the morning
once you get good with the pistol you'll wonder why you ever stopped using it in the first place
even better if you get one of these
This one time under the old system I was playing virgina valvepub landfall and I pissed off a hacker. I got votebanned from 5 servers as he followed me around. I didn't get to continue playing landfall on virgina that night.
>he managed to milk 6 minutes out of this
People liked hats more in the omd days, can confirm cuz played regurarly since 07, having clean hats before that update was seen upon as luxury, status and wealth, people with uncraftable hats were looked down upon. Now, all those Mahslows needs are gone, except from just trying to look good, but nothing else.
I hope you're not the guy I replied to, because if you are you've done a 180 on your initial point.
It was kind of funny to me as a person who bought a couple of those hats in the mann co store when they were dirty dirty NoCrafts that the community thought of them as worth less. After all, all you had to do to get hats the "rich" way was to have 20 idling accounts, to buy a hat from the store you had to have money.
The only reason I was kind of excited for casual matchmaking was because I thought there'd be a system to balance teams with equal amounts of decent players and retards instead of it being completely random.
Is there a cool down for the weapon spread? My main issue is I just fire off a whole clip and once and not really aim well because I'm mainly using it to apply some damage and make someone rethink attacking me.
Scout is a pure dm class. Scatter is precision pistol is accuracy. They both are best with tracking. Watch clock works video on scout and soldier 1v1s and you will be 5x better.
So I had the unboxing bug today.

>unbox two strange shooting stars in a row
I feel like I'm close to a nebula hat.
It's a shitty situation, those queues, and then you get a quick stomp, back to queues. There was absolutely nothing wrong with how it was before this messmaker update. There was always a Valve server with a map I liked, now I spend more time alt tabbed doing something else waiting for a fucking game rather than playing.
They took a working car and switched its tires with triangular rocks.
Yeah, and not only that, competitive servers just don't fucking work, ever. Like, casual servers are next to perfect as far as performance, but you're lucky if you're able to get eight fucking people to connect to a comp server for some reason. Coulda just kept the regular servers and added competitive matchmaking (with working servers), would have been perfect.
Two in a row. Then trade up for the shit items gave me a normal one.
just got back from my daily 6s mix, shit was maaaaaad fun
y0, u still trade homeboooy? man that shit is so boring, why u even do it? id be pretty embarassed if das all i did after so long in this shiznit
anyway, me n tyrone gonna play some faceit, hit me up in discord if u want to mann up and play sum sixes
you forgot the part where they complain about the medic "not healing them"
i like making pubbies get used to receiving short crit heals and not having a med up their ass 24/7
but i dont play med in pubs anymore since its not very rewarding
how come the stickybomb launcher says "Alt-Fire: Detonate all Stickybombs" and knife says "Attack an enemy from behind to Backstab them for a one hit kill." but the sniper rifle doesn't say "On Headshot: Deal critical damage." or minigun doesn't say "Alt-Fire: Spin up the barrel."
i mean i know this is redundant for new players but if youre going to add clarifying text to the stickybomb launcher or flamethrower or knife you might as well add clarifying info to every thing that doesnt appear simple at first glance
winner, and lets see what the desc will be.
When the Liberal Party split over support for the National Government in 1931, Murray initially remained with the main section of the party in opposition, but joined the National Liberals in 1936.
fine queer, also winner
thanks for playing
i just had a really cool thought
multiple people (like at least 4) take an image, divide it inbetween themselves, create a spray for each piece, than respray it in game on a wall for one mega-spray
how cool would that be
hmm i moved a bunch of stuff off my drive, guess we'll find out what it ends up as
>just played Sniper for 3 hours and didnt get called a hacker once
i must be losing my touch
I don't want to. Mge and jump maps not fun at all. Studying sucks.
>Mvm is pretty enjoyable with competent people.
And boring. With competent people it's not challenging at all. Even the hardes waves like 666.
>no one EVER votes to kick someone
I do it everytime. But it's hard to kick someone just for being useless piece of shit when 75% of the team are the same kind of shitters.
I guess that's what happens when you let everyone do whatever they want to do as long as they do it.
I hope the VR bandwagon crashes and burns soon enough.
I keep telling myself that if I did land a gig at valve I would work on making tf2 great again but I don't think I'd be able to focus on refactoring 20 years' worth of code while the community cries about me not doing something more flashy like adding new weapons, and the rest of the company is busy watching total immersion porn
focus on competitive
if the game is balanced around the top level of play, there won't be a need for as many bans and restrictions in comp and it will be easier for new players to get into competitive play
plus, casual players don't know shit about balance and hardly know what they want
And i think they let the praise go to thier heads.
And of course making team fortress 3 would be a task unto itself. Let alone half life 3. Regardless of what they make, people would be disappointed and they would have a duke nukem on their hands.
So ibstead they do essentially nothing. Not even doing big community updates.
Though letting everyone know about a jungle theme is promising.
I would at least try to keep the cash cow mooing.
Instead of beating it with a pipe then taking it to the worst vet in the state tbat just gives it a band-aid.
Especially as they have a game that is still pretty successful nearly ten years later. Imagine how much better it would be if they actually forced someone on the team to work on tf2 or accepted the slew of fixes that community people have made.
But thats not how valve works which is bad for us that actually like the game.
>tfw tf2 is going to fade just like arena shooters did
bad feels tbh
Okay desu I wasn't there when arena shooters died because back I didn't have broadband internet until like 2006, but weren't they still in good shape around 2004? Didn't modern warfare and other console shooters take the spotlight by simply being Xbox focused?
>guy on my team in casual got killed with a sticky then, constantly during both rounds, complained about sticky spam and talked shit to the demo that killed him
>someone points out that he's playing demo
>"i only use stickies in mvm"
>he only scored 8 points by the end of the match
The point is people work on what they want and no one is forced to work on something they don't want to work on.
Which means that tf2 will get little attention.
I never said anything negative about their methods or the people that actually made tf2.
I only lamented that, as its the least popular of the three games valve is working on, it gets no attention. Or at least not the attention fans want.
>I only lamented that, as its the least popular of the three games valve is working on, it gets no attention. Or at least not the attention fans want.
Valve doesn't even work on counter strike, that's completely outsourced to a third party developer.
It's arguable they even care about dota. Do they still get shit?
True, valve doesn't even actually do anything with counter strike. Forgot that.
So I guess it takes thier team of however many people, which is moving into new offices soon, to come up with and make what few updates doter gets.
R.i.p. good valve.
I don't know about gameplay wise but I keep on hearing about new cosmetics added to csgo.
Apparently the only cosmetics there though are paint on a knife, which seems a bit silly even for tf2 standards.
That is actually a really good question. If valve really is hiring the best so that they can work on any project they want... Then what the fuck kind of projects are valve working on that we don't have a clue about? I mean it can't be 400 people just sitting on their arses all day can it
Last tf2 video he had was pretty much just saying "The team is only 5 people guys! Them fixing a bunch of random and obscure bugs totally means they still care about this game!"
He made a new video.
I never really paid attention to this shit but apparently robotic boogaloo, end of the line, and invasion were all "headed" by some guy from the community member and just had his circlejerk of friends make everything.
For the jungle thing and onward valve's gonna choose the cosmetics again, which is good I guess?
I finally have all the Gold Diggers.
Yet I still feel empty inside.
You don't. I have this one community server where everyone is a tryhard and plays very seriously and they're very coordinated for a pub and because of that nobody ever plays spy so I can do it when I want. One of my comp-playing victims even unironically said "well played" when I somehow managed to get him while he was distracted
