#11 Gas Passer in TF2 General Discussion

Gas Passer charges in setup time so it might be worth running to sac on Badwater first.

Also, it goes through some walls.

Also, what's nice about Scorch is that you don't have to hold it out for it to blow up, which means you can have more flamethrower uptime. Detonator is almost always better, but I can see Scorch being useful on certain maps where you don't need to jump or hit people / sticky traps above you that aren't on a sloped surface, like defending Metalworks last. It might also be good on Badlands, but I prefer Detonator so if I'm pushing out, I can jump Spire or hit people on pride rock from low ground.

#137 Please Ban The Crossbow in TF2 General Discussion
cat4812622catid play medic if xbow was banned so i dont have fucking retards say "how u miss that arro!!!" god fuck off bitch
is everyone who wants the crossbow banned someone who can't hit arrows on people standing still or walking in straight lines

coming from someone who said pyro wasnt overpowered i dont really take anything you have to say seriously

You hate playing against JI Pyro flames because they take no aim.

And you're so upset that there is one facet of Medic that takes mechanical skill, one facet of Medic that is mildly difficult, that you want to remove it?

Do you not see the contradiction?

#117 Please Ban The Crossbow in TF2 General Discussion
alamo2914For those saying that when item servers were down they didn't enjoy having no crossbow: you played with it for couple of hours, so you probably didn't have time to develop proper strategies. The entire 6's meta is built around the idea of medic having a crossbow as well, so of course taking it away ain't going be fun at the begining. If you were to play without it for more time you'd probably enjoy it more, maybe much more.

Syringe Gun is fun. It doesn't matter because it is so bad that you should never take it out when you could be healing people, unless you are alone. If you're alone and someone is fighting you, the Crossbow takes more skill to kill them anyway.

And there isn't really much complexity to running stock Medic. You critheal things that are not Scouts and then ignore them until they have critheals again.

i would literally fall asleep playing medic without the crossbow

i actually don't understand how anyone can bear 99.9% uptime on a gun that takes no aim

please don't take away literally the only thing about medic that is mildly difficult

#227 nerf pyro in TF2 General Discussion
funhaver1998everything in the game should be balanced at every level and in every gamemode and its 100% possible and not even hard. like gunboats or scout (i kno a lot of ppl will have trouble understanding that one, but i dont mind explaining)

Yeah, you go right ahead and do that.

in the situation where gink was in house and insta kills thalash, hes outnumbered, has 18 hp and in some retarded situation but still manages to kill someone

even after gink had died

and theres a health pack like right there but it was so fast that despite the scouts move speed he couldnt even reach it, and thats thalash, not some pub scout, hes better than u as well as most of these stupid ass clips happening to the best team in europe but i guess they just lack the skills u do

now thats a cherry picked situation cause its bat shit retarded thats even happening, but the point is that it could happen and some kind of retardation happens all the time now that people are just switching to pyro at random times without any thought usually just because they are bored and then end up reflecting a rocket into a med with uber or killing like 3 people without really understanding what they're doing themselves, they're just bored and walking forward

Do you not see the irony that you're telling me I can't criticize Thalash because he's better than me, while criticizing me, while I'm better than you?

Nobody is perfect and even the best players make mistakes constantly. If you think that top level players don't make mistakes, or they don't make mistakes that people worse than them can recognize, I don't even know what to tell you.

He didn't die because he was too slow, he died because he walked into the flamethrower. It was easily preventable and he fucked up, the end.

these ppl making these vids arent trying to show us how they out brained the other team, gink and dark necrid and all the other ppl making these vids are just showing all the dumb and shitty stuff u can just get away with now

What the video's author intended is irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that they succeeded because the Pyro's victims fucked up incredibly simple things, like, for instance, walking into a Phlog Pyro when he has crits, or not juggling a Pyro who can't airblast and is holding W.

if this update came out in 2009 tf2 wouldn't of got to where it is today, not only because of what its done to 6s but mainly what its done to pubs. the reason why my last post was significant was because pubbers have gotten worse like a lot worse because they rely on this shit a lot more and they end up with like -6 k/ds and struggle and rage in chat when their shit doesn't work. when i was pubbing and shit it wasn't like that at all and ppl were always trying to do new shit like new rocket jumps and trick stabs what have u but now if you pub and u see someone doing that its just a competitive player u recognise from somewhere else.

wat this leads to is no players coming to play comp because they understand that they aren't good enough to despite knowing what comp is now. the average pubber now knows what comp is most likely because as a youtuber and twitch streamer b4nny has pretty much replaced the role star_ had, moreso on twitch, like if u have the word like 'b4nny' in your name or 'lft', a pubber nowadays will know what that is and understand that you are a comp level player and thats how they understand why you're better, but if u don't and you're doing well, you're a hacker, because the skillfloor of the pubber has decreased by that much.

and ofc, the perception of the game changes when people see all this dumb shit happening. people have kind of just accepted that tf2 isn't going anywhere so theres not really any debate, but there used to be, as in ppl from my school would play CS and stuff would say the usual 'this game is for children and its easy' and then u would show them some MGE or shadowburn frag vid and they wouldn't think like that anymore, but if they saw gink's vid they would go back to how they were thinking before.

Here is STAR's most popular video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGr18BHG4ak&ab_channel=STAR_

Show your friends this and ask them if TF2 looks like a competitive game.

I also don't understand where you're going with this. Iatgink doesn't have the following of Banny or STAR, and if they watched Banny today they'd be far more likely to appreciate competitive TF2 than if they watched STAR's youtube in 2009 or whatever. I can find hundreds of videos that depict TF2 as a silly casual game from 2009 that have at least as many views as that Pyro clip.

As for the argument that there are less competitive players in pubs which leads to less awareness of competitive TF2 in pubs, it's far more likely due to the horribleness of Casual matchmaking and the death of community servers stopping competitive players from pubbing. That's what's deterred me and most people I know who have taken a step back from pubbing.

u can pretend like no one thinks that about TF2 all u want but its very very common that ppl think that way about this game and this pyro shit isn't helping whatsoever, its actually making no part of the game better than it was before the update and 90% of the community as well as myself would much rather be playing the game before the update

I would too. That doesn't equate to banning Pyro.

ya, u can just press s but thats not fun and not needed in the game. its one dimensional as much as it makes the pyro ineffective and awkward that you have to adjust your own play style just to fight this class and that everyone has to adjust it in the same plain and boring way.

...What?

ya, u can just press s but thats not fun

I don't think I need to go any further.

#225 nerf pyro in TF2 General Discussion
JynxiiI am by no means a low level player, medic requires brain > pyro doesnt.

Pyro takes significantly more thought than Medic. Pyro has to make difficult decisions constantly because you are leading pushes or alone, and is punished harder for positioning errors because of the opportunity cost of not running Pyro and slower speed. Meanwhile, everything a Medic needs to think about can be microd for him, and he can brainlessly follow whoever is leading the push like a dog on a leash. I guarantee every player who reads tftv can play Medic at the same or higher level than they can their combat class main after a few weeks of practice. I would not say the same of Pyro.

spy dies after getting one kill > pyro doesnt. Sentry guns cant get ubered and run into an entire enemy team > pyro can.

If your team has lost multiple people to a Pyro Uber, or worse, a Pyro sac, then I have no sympathy for you and you deserve to lose. He has shit approach tools and walks too slow to catch any 6s class. How the fuck do you ever let that happen? Your argument was that Pyro should be banned because killing people doesn't take mechanical skill. Surely, any person to die to something that takes no mechanical skill is a tragedy that we must never allow to happen again, since this is an FPS, and aim is sacred, right?

Competitive tf2 is balanced around keeping the players' skills as the focal point and removing aspects of the game that give large advantages with little to no effort or counterplay (i.e wrangler, Sydney sleeper). Pyro gets rewarded for being within 5ft of an enemy that isnt invulnerable.

Yes, but the difference is there's quite a bit of counterplay. For example, staying five feet away, and/or being invulnerable.

I know that it does get used as a scapegoat for things going poorly in game quite often, but when almost every single tf2 player that has any understanding of the game (even pubbers) complain about it being too easy and unfun to play against, simply saying 'git gud press S XD' isnt enough to quell the frustrations that it will continue to bring.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argumentum_ad_populum

Pubbers think Sniper and Scout are bad, that Heavy is mandatory, and that Soldier is overpowered. They've also been bitching about Pyro as long as Pyro has existed, even when it was utter garbage.

If you have to stoop as low as saying that you're right because the lowest common denominator of X category agrees with you, your argument is lacking.

I guarantee you do not want to play the version of 6v6 that pubbers imagine to be ideal. Seriously.

#222 nerf pyro in TF2 General Discussion

It does not take skill to press S and check corners. This is not a technique exclusive to high level players, anyone can do it.

Are we balancing for the skill floor now? Medic is significantly easier than Pyro with a much lower skill ceiling. Building Sentry Guns also takes zero skill. And Spy is capable of instagibbing any class with no mechanical skill, if they don't play around Spy existing.

Competitive 6v6 has never balanced with the mindset of protecting low level players from their idiocy. I hope that will never change.

Also, you said this:

Jynxiiif a class it at the point at which a team has to have an 8 second solo uber (on the same class i.e pyro vs pyro) to counter it, then it has to be considered quite absurd

Implying that the only way to counter [Phlog] Pyro is with another Pyro. This is what I am disproving.

#220 nerf pyro in TF2 General Discussion
Jynxiisolo ubering a standard class against a pyro means you lose once the uber has ended because he can obliterate anyone but another pyro who kills him first. Fun.

No, because the Phlog Pyro's Medic popped much earlier.

If you take it a step forward and say, "well, what if the defending team lets the Pyro walk onto point uncontested?" And the answer to that would be, "Then they would have a much better chance of capping last if the Pyro had airblast, and that defending team would have lost the cap to pre-JI Pyro anyway."
