Tino_saamNewbie mixes is more about helping new players conquer imaginary barriers to competitive rather than real ones. You don't need an IM player to explain the basics of 6s to someone who has never played but it makes it seem a lot easier to get into.

That being said I don't have the patience to say the same thing every week and do the same map reviews for players brand new to the game.

You hit the nail on the head, its more about ease of access then actual hard learning. TBH we dont need you to be there every week, even one time a month for 2 or 3 hours would be welcome. The issue we have is that very few people ever actually show up to coach so we have a group of 4 or 5 people that are there every single week. If all the 8-8 open players and above came to coach the mixes just once a month for a couple of hours we would not have this problem. That is what frustrates me, not the fact that we dont get people all the time, but the fact that we dont get people ever. So please even if its only 1 time a month come and help grow this shitty game we all love.

went last week and ended up waiting ~3 hours to just sit in mumble doing my own thing (dont get how u pick captains bc i was one of the first like 4 or something to show up)

I'm having similar frustrations with my tf2 career as well -- after spending some time back in the game this summer it rekindled my interest in competitive. However, I notice there are a lot of people looking and not many teams, and I don't know if I can carry the burden of leading and all the things coming with it. Just having two sides of that coin always puts me on the fence whether it concerning my return to playing the game. I'm just not sure I have the charisma to keep people sitting on their butts practicing for 2 months.

Get a friend to lead the team with you

And if you're thinking of leading a HL team, definitely get someone. It's incredibly hard to organize that alone and in a timely fashion

I never said anything about you playing with lee, I don't know any of what happened. What I do know is neo picked you up regardless of what bwelp wanted which made him leave which killed the team. I had to explain that neo, just like you because he didn't understand lmfao (understanding others is really not a strong point between you two). Also that wasn't the point, you're the type to kill everything you touch so I was just making a suggestion that anybody who is trying to play a full season and get better should attempt to avoid people like you like the plague.

You're actually retarded, what the fuck does neo picking me up have to do with another player leaving the team? If you're implying bwelp left because he didn't want to play with me, even then i wouldn't be the one causing the problems, it would be his personal issues. Just stop talking out of your ass about problems which have nothing to do with you. Bwelp literally never complained about my behavior or gameplay, had he done so then i would have talked to him on finding a solution to it. I'm done with your shitty ass, just another player added to the blocked/muted list. Spend more time improving than creating beef with players you bot. I might not be liked by most but the few who do are real people, that's more than anything i can say about you. Not looking at this thread again, make up more lies as you wish.

i just spent the last 2 weeks forming the remainder of a highlander roster, trying out for teams, playing DM and MGE endlessly, finally finding a team that i'm happy with and then paying up

just to have my dad tell me that he will be shutting off the internet at 10PM(i live on the east coast), which means i will not be able to play highlander nor 6s. and there's literally no way in changing this and i'm so pissed off that i can't play since i feel like i'm fucking over my teams by having to quit last second. and the crazy part is that there's literally no fucking reason as to why he does this. depending on how late scrims/matches get i still get 6-7 hours of sleep daily and can finish my homework before 6PM. it's fucking bullshit like who the fuck does this

Yesterday, I had a movie date with a girl. She really likes me, and I really like her. We watched the movie, didn't have the balls, nothing happened. But, we spent the evening together. We're having a great time, everything is smooth. Then I bring her back home and can notice she's really nervous. I want to do it, I've been waiting for this moment for a long time... we're in front of her door. Drummer, just do it. We're going to kiss, our lips are so close... suddenly, she backs out. "I'm...sorry, I'm too shy... we'll meet again soon, okay?".

Her friends later told me it's been a while she didn't have a boyfriend, she just panicked. Apparently, she feels bad about this, I don't want her to, even though I'm a bit angry (more like disappointed) inside because I waited so long for that, just to be brutally stoped, so fucking close.

2AM, she sends me a message: "Hey, I'm really sorry. :/ I need to think about it...good night :)".

It just worries me. I know she likes me, but when a girl says "I need to think about it", it's generally not really good. Now I'm nervous, I just want her to text me back, I can't stop thinking about this, whether it's "Hey, let's meet in a few days" or "Sorry, it just won't work".

I'm angry at myself for setting my expectations high.

im no master of girls not even close but her friends did say that she sorta panicked since she hasnt had a boyfriend in a while imo "Hey, I'm really sorry. :/ I need to think about it...good night :)" at 2am was possibly just her having a bit of trouble sleeping from being embarrassed about what happened or potentially stressed out and that text was her way of getting it off her mind so she could sleep

I think it will work it out it sounds like she had a fun time and you did 2 <3 gl dude!

also my phone keeps saying that the sd card has unmounted itself so i can listen to 30 seconds of music and then it stops which is really aggravating (plus when i try to listen to music on the yt music app half the time it fails to load -_-)
guess il have to reformat the card and re-copy everything over again

I know getting better at this and other games isn't easy but over the past year or so I think I'm just getting worse and worse. It's like my mouse hand does not obey me.

I rarely get tilted by stuff other players do in-game, but missing easy shots drives me up the wall. The most frustrating thing is knowing what you need to do to win, and completely fail to execute

No anger but regret.

I regret not starting TF2 when all my old Quake friends were begging me to play on the first day of release. I was addicted to WoW at the time and chose that over TF2. Huge mistake.

I also regret not having enough time to devote to TF2 now as I did when I was younger, like playing for hours on end during weekdays and such. It is the single most important factor that has slowed my progression, IMO.
