#3085 PC Build Thread in Hardware

So ignoring TF2, GPU upgrade is the main component for increased fps? I feel stupid now. It's amazing what kind of fundamentals you forget when you've been trying to optimize a technical mystery like TF2 for the last 5 years.

Regardless, I recall in a thread I made over a year back to increase TF2 fps that my motherboard didn't support overclocking CPU's, so you suggested I get a new board, ram, CPU and cooler which averaged out to about £550 or so.

In your opinion is the FPS gained worth that £550 to overclock a CPU for any game outside TF2, or is it negligible in comparison to GPU upgrade + monitor and potential SSD upgrade? Would it be a better use of my cash to just upgrade the GPU for most gains (outside TF2)?

Cheers.

#3083 PC Build Thread in Hardware

Yo, looking to upgrade my setup. Got about a £1200 budget with a bit of leeway to go over. Looking to maximize fps and improve general gaming experience, specifically for first person shooters such as TF2, Overwatch and the new CoD (with frequent use of Shadowplay or whatever it's called these days). I don't really have any plans to stream, I just sometimes make some videos with vegas. In retrospect buying the i7 may have been a waste, oh well.

Monitor: BenQ XL2411Z 24" 144 Hz
Main Board: Gigabyte H97-D3H ATX
Processor: Intel i7-4790(Not overclockable) @3.60 GHz 8 CPUs
SSD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB
Hard Drive: 1.5TB SeaGate 5900RPM
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Memory: HyperX FURY Series 16GB 1600MHz
PSU: Corsair CXM 600W Modular 80 Bronze
Windows: W10 64-Bit
Case: Corsair CC-9011077-WW Carbide 100R Mid-Tower ATX

Feel free to use the budget to it's fullest to make the best available rig (if the budget allows, I would love to be able to approach the 240hz/G-Sync area of gaming, if not now at some point in the future). I appreciate any advice, thanks.

#108 It's coming home in World Events

Honestly, mad respect to the squad for getting this far.

We made constant mistakes after conceding and just kinda fell apart, Croatia really stepped it up. In the first half it was our game, but Croatia put their front foot forward and just made shot after shot. We couldn't retaliate at all.

#3 sony uploads entire movie on accident in Music, Movies, TV

There's a scene in the middle of it where the Cartel leader threatens the protag from the back of an SUV, kills and skins a rabbit after petting it like a Bond villain, then throws it at him as a warning.

This movie is fucking amazing.

#33 ETF2L replacing Sunshine with Cardinal (also money in TF2 General Discussion

The philosophy behind introducing new maps is good and I have no problems playing this map in the season (despite the fact I think it looks like a clustered back-cap central).

The problem is that the philosophy is stupid when the team is removing other new maps. Sunshine was for the most part quite well received, and is a common map I see people scrimming/pugging often. It's definitely faired far better than Reckoner in that regard anyhow. If you want long term variance in the map pool, then it would have been in your best interests to keep Sunshine in the pool and instead replace a different map.

Imo Prolands or Granary were ideal candidates to be substituted for Cardinal for this one season, considering that Collaide confirmed that there is no intention for Prolands to be developed further, and you're not going with the newer version of Granary for reasons unknown. Based on Stinson's reasoning, it simply doesn't make sense that you'd remove Sunshine over these two perfectly more valid options.

Alternatively you could just stop making these out of nowhere decisions without consulting your community as Eemes said, but that's probably a preach to the choir based on history.

It's true. The evidence has been there forever but scientists continuously try to debunk it.

#51 TF2 update for 3/28/18 in TF2 General Discussion

Scientists mak and doughy found a bug instantly, probably due to the Atomizer fix.

Scout can't do a double jump and switch weapons without finishing the animation first. Try it, it funny. Jump, swap weapons, then try to jump. It no work.

In the meantime, try not to swap weapons unless you've completed the double jump I guess. Sucks to be a Winger jump bind main right about now.

*edit: seems they fixed it already. nutters.

#111 RGL.gg is coming to Europe with a $1,000 prizepool in TF2 General Discussion
HildrethHad a chuckle at this one, we're still at best a Semi-Professional scene with nothing to offer anyone looking to become a pro-gamer. I am sure a few thousand dollars from Sigafoo will change this(!).

I don't really mean it in that sense. I don't think the scene will grow much more at this stage regardless, but if you're gonna spend money to support comp TF2, why not the main format that's currently being played? At the very least you'll look great in the community, and it will give incentive for players to put on great matches that make vets want to keep playing. I'm more in favor of focusing on player retention rather than growth anyhow, but that's another topic.

"I'm trying to do what the sixes community has never done. Try to evolve our comp tf2 format to try and find the best one, one that sees all class viability and fast pace/dynamic game play

This is the part that angers people, because 6s players are content that has already been accomplished, myself included. You are adamant that you should be leading a revolution to change and improve TF2 by disregarding core fundamentals that we as a community playtested long ago, and are still changing to this day.

But even that alone would have been fine. The problem is that you have forced your idea to the forefront by offering substantial prize pools. It's a complete show of ignorance and ill-respect to what the majority has worked on the last 10 years. 10 years man. If you really wanted to support TF2's comp scene, you would be putting money towards 6s itself, even if you don't agree with it. It has prize pools and consistent LAN tournaments which I found fucking exhilarating to watch on stage. Instead it seems like you deem all of that not good enough, and wish to see your own vision for the game flourish instead. I strongly believe your gamemode existing is in direct opposition to 6s.

In the end we can't tell you what to do with your money, but nobody wants to give you feedback on how to improve your idea because it's YOUR idea. None of us have an existential problem with 6s that is somehow being solved by your vision.

There is no evidence that your league isn't being abused for the money. I have seen nobody scrimming your format. Teams show up to play and that's it. People say it's a Froyo paycheck for a reason.

If you really believed in your idea, you should have kept it completely free. In fact you still could. Keep it free for a couple seasons with no prize pools. You'd get much less flak from the 6s community, real feedback as to whether people would take time out their evenings/comp schedule/whatever to play it, and whether it truly does have any merit.

I'd continue to play 6s for free as long as I still enjoy it, and I'd pay out my pocket to go play at LAN for potentially nothing, same way the Australians did. That love and care has been crafted through 10 years of hard work from insane members in this community. What you're trying to emulate is just not possible this late down the line. For those reasons, what you're doing seems both arrogant and self-serving.
