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.

owlI fucking hate that I was never good at this game and EVERY single time I had a chance to be on teams that would have carried me and maybe helped me at least seem decent either real life or some bullshit out of my control stopped me from getting there.

I hate that I wasted 4k+ hours playing this game that I'm not even good at and dont even enjoy that much because my life took a bad turn just as I was getting interested in it.

I hate that I made so many good, real friends through this game that I kept on thinking about playing until like 4 months ago just so I could interact with them instead of the people I know and like less in my offline life

I hate that so many of my good friends either were better naturally or so quickly got better than me to the point where playing seriously with them was no fun for either of us

I hate that I almost did the exact same thing with cs even though I fucking knew better

I hate that I still somehow visit this dumb website like twice a day just to shitpost despite not even recognizing two thirds of the community

same regrets but at least I didn't waste time playing cs because I never enjoyed it enough to bother and I got outpaced by all my tf2 friends so fast I never really got the chance to play on "good" teams for more than half a season before they died/I got cut

i originally wasted too much time in pubs and friendly servers before i got into playing this game competitively, i play on a poor setup despite being able to save up for a decent one if i actually invested time into it

i would be considered an extremely cancerous player if i wasn't a submissive fag who never says anything i mean to other player's faces, i hate some people for the sole reason that they are better than i will ever be because of their natural talent & mindset towards the game

also, i would actually be able to succeed and advance in this game if i took the time to find a mentor & play an actual season of esea, which i have been procrastinating for god knows how long. i really just need someone to guide me & make me do this shit tbh

i decided i wanted a milkshake so decided to walk over and buy 1 from this place nearby on campus
wait in line for like 10 minutes then order it and a burger
burger comes pretty quickly
after like 10 minutes of waiting i get fed up and ask the cashier whats going on and he says they're working on it so i go sit down and finish my cold burger
i get up to throw out my trash and when i come back the dude yells VANILLA SHAKE and holds it up and this dude fucking snatches it before i can even get there
i tell them i ordered one like 20 minutes ago and still haven gotten it so the guy gets up to make another and i get to wait another few minutes (guess this time they didn't forget about it...)
shit triggered me so hard that i waited there for nearly a half hour and this dude just comes by and steals it lmao

I played medic in ETF2L (mostly at mid level in 6s and high in HL) for a while but I had to force myself to quit the game several times and try to stay away. I love the competitive side of the game and I really like the awesome community that plays it.

The problem is that I have some problems with self-confidence and being competitive with /comparing myself to other medics.

No doubt I have improved at the game from when I first started but my progress has been super slow because every time I play in a team for any significant length of time I end up having to quit because it's just too much stress and then that means I take it out on my team which isn't fair on them and it just makes me hate myself more when I do it. I haven't been able to stay in a team for more than a season which sucks and I've tried managing my own teams but I'm just not very good at it. As a medic this is fatal because playing in a team is really the only really reliable way of improving imo.

So I moved on to doing projects and trying to get involved that way. I've done so many different things in so many different orgs I've written articles for thespire.tv, administrated for TF2C, organised casts for maincall.tf (I wanted to get into casting as well but could never pluck up the courage even though my practice casts were well received) and started TF2Stadium. I wanted to start a coaching scheme for up and coming casters to try and encourage more people to get into the casting scene with another famous caster who I won't name but sadly that never happened and I quit the game entirely soon after.

All of this was because I wanted to be involved with this community but ultimately the same personal problems get in the way of everything that I do both in and outside of the game. I couldn't even bring myself to watch i58 streams because I knew that would tempt me back into the game like i52 did and so I went to the extreme lengths of spoiling the outcome for myself...

At the same time all of this was happening, I was going through a really hard time at university and that ended really badly partly because of the issues I mentioned before and partly because the university fucked up really bad and my life and career hasn't really recovered since and it makes me really angry.

I watched the whole of Bojack Horseman for the first time a few weeks ago and there are elements of that show which really sums up how I feel. I would recommend it to anyone by the way the show is amazing regardless of whether you can sympathise with it or not.

But yeah I'm just trying to fill the hole in my life that used to be TF2 and yeah there are other things I can and will do but TF2 was special to me despite all of the bad experiences I had with it. So to see this game in the state that it's in and to see what people are writing on TFTV about the game's state and valve really makes me angry. If only I could bring myself to do something about it. :/

TL:DR - Self-esteem issues fucked up my life and any chance of me ever getting involved in TF2 in any capacity or for that matter get on with my life. Yay, fun times.

i love playing scout in games but i hate practicing dm with a passion, i don't fucking want to spend 3 hours doing scout mge cuz i go full tryhard mode (sit on the edge of my chair and aim with my forearm, when i'm casually playing i sit back and it makes it less painful to aim with my arm)
so i only practice soldier in mge cuz i use 12cm/360 on soldier and its fucking relaxing, like playing a jump map or something
but the problem is i don't want to main soldier because i play with high ping (i live in north africa and play on eu servers, i usually get 90 to 120 ping) and it's gonna be aids to find a team who wants a 100 ping soldier

or you could just mge as scout vs a soldier. which is a lot better for practicing movement than scout v scout

Internet cable isn't working when plugged into the wall and I have to "play" off of wifi. I also get incredibly awful stutters when I do decide to play online.
(Looking for 8 seconds and 18 seconds in the video, the last little bit was most likely a ping spike)

Mind you, my laptop is the closest thing to the router in my apartment. I also think I sent in a support ticket but I have no idea if it even went through. I can deal with a low framerate but I can't deal with a connection that seems to almost time out every 10-20 seconds for a second or 2.

I really just want something else to do other than studies and go to parties (the few that I actually go to) and I'm getting rather burnt out from just doing straight hud editing and practicing demo rollouts

Edit: THIS JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER HOLY SHIT
So apparently in my support ticket, the "length of the message must be between 3 and 500" and I have no idea if that's 3 or 500 letters or 3 and 500 words. I just copied and pasted what I had into a word document and got about 140 words. What the actual fuck tech support

Edit2: Took me long enough but I should not have to go through this much time to send in a simple support ticket

Having a shit rep because I was a cocky asshole who thought I was all that because I played steel medic on a hl team when I first started pugging and not being able to claw myself out of the shit rep even though I actively try to improve and be a better player so I can not be shit like I used to be. And when people assume that i'm the person i was a year ago and assume that I never improve and that if I ever show signs of improvement its always a fluke. And that im a "meme" and that i'll always be bad or that I only play medic because im bad at other classes, or that I act like the leader i was over a year ago.

"i always get beat either 20-4 or 20-17"

"20-17"

Wait, so is this a concern you have? Despite losing, 20-17 is pretty good, especially if you think you're shit at scout v. soldier. If you're losing a lot of sessions where you are so close to winning, I'd think over what it is you're doing each round and try and figure out what you're doing in their favor. I mean, it's MGE and only so much actually carries over to scrims or even pugs, but figuring out why you keep losing to soldiers as a scout despite being so close to winning could easily help you out in general.
