GentlemanJonToo late for that.

I've been on the fence about keeping my various bits and pieces going, and it's just not worth it is it? The unchallenged levels of toxic behaviour make it an embarrassment to admit to being involved in comp TF2 now. This seems as good a moment as any to make that decision.

This has been something I've been thinking about myself albeit I'm not on your level of useful and only moderate TrueTF2 on Reddit. I finally joined a plethora of the older HL players I know who primarily stopped playing due to this kind of behavior awhile ago and now the sub is the only real attachment I have left to the game. The only thing that keeps me going is I'm in a position to actually moderate this kind of behavior away even if it's only from a tiny niche part of the community.

sacwhy punish the silent majority of frendly tf2 gamers

The silent majority is a large part of the issue in the first place. This kind of behavior does not go away with being quiet. It goes away by being drowned out and punished. The silence of complicity and the silence of dissent sound the exact same, especially to the victims. If it takes actually important people like Jon to leave to start lgetting people to wake up and speak out/take action then so be it, tbh.

faust_i was more addressing any individuals living in the u.s who agree with the premise that people shouldn't be allowed to say what they want to say,

Freedom of speech only applies to the government restricting citizen speech (even then there are a ton of common law exceptions) and receive information and never has - and hopefully never will - applied to private entities. You have the freedom to say whatever you want, you do not have the freedom to say whatever you want without punishment in a private space.

FuxxAll_Over_RSstop being a victim-blaming chud FuxxI apologize for being passionate about bringing justice to offenders and preventing the suffering of future innocents.

I'm such a horrible person.

It's totally normal and fair to feel that way and stuff and I understand how you feel completely (if you're being sincere), but as long as the couple people known for doing similar stuff to what Uberchain has described are hella watched and kept in check (ie giving warnings to the people they're hanging out with when things look serious and blackmailed into acting normal) from further incidents it really doesn't matter since there would be a safety net.

It's also pretty ideal if those people were in such high roles in the community that if stuff came out and people actually decided to do something about it it'd be extremely big blows to the community.

Hypothetically, of course.

Muukiisocial media platforms and twitch chat are just very poor places to start crying about your personal problems,

Are you for real arguing that social media platforms like twitter and facebook aren't good places to be social through media?

I'm not sure if you're aware but that is in fact one of their main purposes.

it's not like im promoting this kind of behaviour

Yeah thank god you don't actively promote this behavior, you only just see someone who is asian getting called a gook and talking about sexual (and emotional) abuse and have your first instinct be to downplay their feelings by talking about how they're thirsty for attention, tell them to stop using a social media platform as a media platform to be social about their life and experiences, and even going as far as to make fun of them for being "this offended" over racism while also saying literally zero negative things about the people she brought up. (which is incredible considering how easy it is to say bad things about racism and sexual abuse)

So much better.

InternetIntellectualThat's right guys - we'll finally get our major if we make this community a handholding hugbox! (except when we have our triennial b4nny irrational hate threads, we NEED those..)

degu I support her in getting justice and getting her life back on the track after being a victim of the crime.

Even if we take your excuse at face value you support someone getting their life on track by taking their complaining about sexual abuse and making a "comedy" meme about how they shouldn't talk about their problems (or even the abuse) online, then doubled down on it in a comment after (really sticking to the "comedy" I see!) even though social interaction and support is a big part of getting someone's life on track and then liking a "comedic" (boy is this some 5 year old low effort comedy tho) racist post. Because that's totally what someone needs to hear when they're already down.

---

I know way too many people (from all divisions & behind the scenes people) who quit this game over the past 10 years due to stuff like this either directly or as a catalyst for them from leaving, and it sucks that people are willing to find any excuse in the book to defend their bad behavior - I've even had someone argue that them being a dick was OK because they donated to ToTH.

Reerothis community is small enough where someone's reputation being annihilated is punishment enough.

yea ok if a guy can beat his wife and still play, another can scream niggers at lan and not get punished at all and still be idolized, plenty of people can be racist and drive tagg away and still play, and heck others can even do something gameplay affecting like cheat and get caught and still get to play then nothing is gonna happen here either.

i'd go as far as to say that even if uberchain mentioned exactly who sexually abused her that player would still be welcomed by more than enough of the community to play just fine.

if you think people in this game get their reputation "annihilated" for being shitty people you aren't paying attention

#115 $100,000,000 for fortnite esports in e-Sports

Realm Royale seems to be using a way better format for their (community hosted, mind) tournaments so far:

Duos, 30 teams, play 10 games.

Uses a score system like golf (less points = better), your duo gets positive points = to their placement at the end of the game and then loses a point for every kill the duo gets.

Encourages aggressiveness to get kills, hella reduces camping, and Realm Royale is a fast enough game that 10 games doesn't take ages regardless.

#5 any trusted sites like g2a? in Off Topic

https://www.cdkeys.com/ is good, unlike G2A which gets keys provided to them from other people on a marketplace (usually not legitly), CDKeys buys their own keys. Just make sure to check the region and that you get an NA supported key.

e:

Also if you have any qualms buy with Paypal, Paypal will side with you easily in case if anything does go wrong, but they have pretty good support. I've gotten 4 games from them, no problems, and since they buy the keys legit in other regions and re-sell them there's no key revoked worries since the keys aren't stolen etc.

It's still not really as trustworthy as the actual Steam store or something, but ye.

#1489 mastercomfig - fps/customization config in Customization

Whenever you implement no footsteps, I'd recommend letting people know they might not want to use it if they play a format where Spy is prevalent, as you can hear Spy's footsteps while cloaked and in periods of downtime it is really easy to pinpoint them that way.

Loving the simpler exe setup btw. :)

#40 Steam chat redesign beta in Off Topic
ScrewballP shit TBH. Would be better if it let me disable some of the unwanted new "features" or at least move them.

Agreed on the lack of options sucking but even if they don't add the options to change that you can CSS edit them away anyways (just have to re-apply it after every update).

#38 Steam chat redesign beta in Off Topic
HuggesApparently there are multiple reports of getting a mighty increase in fps after installing the redesign beta.
https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/8qn8pd/new_steam_client_beta_update_improves_my_fps_a_lot/

Anyone got any benchmarks?

My FPS increase is only single digits, but I do notice the much lower usage of my CPU while idle.

#31 e3 2018 in Other Games

the only thing out of the pc show yesterday that was exciting was the ridiculous $2000 monitor that seemed basically god tier perfect.

4K + IPS with Adobe RGB + 144 hz + Quantum dots + G-Sync support + HDR support + 4ms response time...

aaa

the rest of the games they showed other than hitman 2 seemed kind of meh, but hitman 2 could be great tho!
