#12 Let's discuss about Spy's balance. in TF2 General Discussion

i've made the (poorly received) argument before that a sniper nerf and spy buff would have a positive impact on 6's, because a failed spy pick often results in a spies death and an opportunity to push, whereas a failed sniper pick generally leads to countersniping and gridlock. that being said OP is way off base i think, amby nerf is kinda dumb granted but its a band aid of a weapon that only existed to artificially prop up a class thats not capable of killing good players with its basic skill set well enough, and dead ringer is (imo) just a fundamentally flawed weapon concept.

also i am totally a proponent of the generalists and specialists argument, but there is a difference between a class being a specialist and a class being almost universally a less flexible and less capable version of another class (i.e. spy vs sniper)

#33 Fortnite now mobile in Off Topic

yeah i just went and re-read some stuff and realized i had misunderstood, apparently mobile players will still be able to queue with pc players (same with pc/ps4 and pc/xbox) but only in cases in which they are in the same party, and they'll play on PC servers. mobile players will get their own servers for all mobile players though, so there won't be too much cross contamination of skill levels

#31 Fortnite now mobile in Off Topic

oh all that being said, the mobile thing is really dumb and has pretty terrible consequences for average skill level in a given server, since the phone gamers are cross platform with pc

#30 Fortnite now mobile in Off Topic

idk why self described serious gamers dislike fortnite so much. it's basically as close as you can get to an ideal AAA casual multiplayer game. the devs are super involved, the game gets weekly content updates and balance adjustments. also it actually feels good to play in a lot of the same ways that tf2 does because it stays away from the trappings of modern video games like canned animations, low player mobility and speed while airborne, removal of momentum etc. the only real "problem" with the fundementals of the gameplay is that weapon spread is randomized and bloom based, but they are supposedly working on changes so that's not how the guns work anymore, or at least they were at one point. also, it actually has an artstyle and reads well while you're playing. i don't care if a game looks cartoony or realistic, but it's nice to have some consistency in the visual language of the game instead of just mashing together a bunch of photoreal elements and calling it a day. there are almost no situations that i've been in where i died because i didn't see a player as a result of them blending in with something accidentally.

on top of all that, the games systems are pretty well designed and you generally feel like you made a mistake when you died, not just that you got unlucky. the guns are balanced so that someone with a lower quality gun almost always has an opportunity to catch someone with a higher quality gun off guard and get the kill, and you're rewarded pretty heavily for playing aggressively and knowing how to build well.

#114 what r yr politicals in Off Topic

kev i'll break it down as simply as possible for you here. capitalism is driven by profit. profit, at it's most basic level, is one person taking something from another person for their own gain. this is, in the view of people who are left of liberal, a bad thing for humanity. it would be better if things weren't driven by a need for profit, and if economic inequality wasn't so massive a gap.

marxist's post lays out some specific problems:

-markets deliberately underproducing a good to drive the price of it up (artificial scarcity)
-advertising's negative effect on consumer awareness through manipulation.

and explains how those problems could be solved in a communist state. there are lots of other issues with capitalism, but i don't want to make this post too long. if you want a more comprehensive list i'll try to make one, although i'm less well read on capitalist critique than marxist by a long shot

hrMarxistActually medic in TF2 is the perfect communist - as contrary to the comic book version of "everybody is equal" communism's maxim is based on the biblical quote from Acts (if you're curious 34: Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, 35: And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.). "From each according to ability, to each according to need" (Marx in the Gotha Program) thus the medic, who has the ability to heal, ought to distribute them to where the need is greatest ;) In general doing so should result in a pretty good performance. One could argue poor medic play is often the result of putting heals where they aren't most needed kinda like capitalism ;)What would happen if medics could heal themselves?

because medic is incapable of winning the game alone because of his skillset, he is still reliant on the abilities of each of the other classes in the game. thus, a majority of the medics heals would still be distributed to the team, while each member of the team contributes some portion of their unique abilites back to the survival and success of the medic. now, it's important to realize that not all classes are created with perfectly equivalent worth - most players would agree that a scout pick hurts your team less than a medic pick. however, most players would agree that losing any one piece of a team represents a significant disadvantage. from this, the maxim "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" is borne out.

#51 Florida High School Shooting in World Events

thats a nonsense argument for a lot of reasons. first, this kid got his guns legally, as do most shooters. making guns more difficult to get prevents gun crime - just look at the gun crime and homicide rates of every country in the world that makes it difficult to buy a gun. second, you're still operating on the assumption that having a gun makes you more protected against gun crime - it doesnt. statistically you are much much more likely to be hurt or killed by a gun if you're a gun owner.

the "good guy with a gun" thing is also flat out wrong for a lot of reasons. one, the good guy with a gun just looks like a guy with a gun to a police officer or other first responder. this is something that happens pretty frequently in america; cops show up, shoot the guy with the gun, and it turns out he was trying to shoot the other guy with the gun. two, the good guy with a gun can only be successful if he knows who the bad guy with a gun is. lets take a recent example, the las vegas killings. what in the hell is a guy with a gun supposed to do in that situation? shoot wildly at a hotel building where it seems like the gunshots are coming from? how about the killing this thread is about. you have a person with a gun walking around a school, looking for the kid doing the killing. do you think real life is an action movie, where our hero gets the jump on the shooter and kills him with a headshot? or are we operating in real life, where someone running around a school with a pistol trying to hunt someone else down is extremely likely to hurt and kill innocent bystanders (as often happens in situations where a "good guy with a gun" actually shows up). even police officers only hit something like 20% of their shots on target, do you think an adrenaline pumped civilian with little to no training is going to do much better than that? probably not.

#48 Florida High School Shooting in World Events
ValorousTFStylaxstarkaStylaxWeird how lots of other countries have guns but America is the one with the biweekly shootings

NRA already apparently said that the issue was that the school had no guns to defend itself. wat
Were there no cops/ student resource officers at the school? Normally they have guns.

Duno. But I mean all that would mean is a shootout. Kids can still die very easily. Especially if the shooters are multiple

Isn't a shootout much more favourable to a one-sided slaughter?

Had there been a security guard or someone equipped and trained to respond to such a threat then maybe the outcome would have been better, just a thought though.

the school had a cop/security guard who had a gun. it didn't matter. the good guy with a gun shit is so tired at this point.
