funhaver1998everything in the game should be balanced at every level and in every gamemode and its 100% possible and not even hard. like gunboats or scout (i kno a lot of ppl will have trouble understanding that one, but i dont mind explaining)
Yeah, you go right ahead and do that.
in the situation where gink was in house and insta kills thalash, hes outnumbered, has 18 hp and in some retarded situation but still manages to kill someone
even after gink had died
and theres a health pack like right there but it was so fast that despite the scouts move speed he couldnt even reach it, and thats thalash, not some pub scout, hes better than u as well as most of these stupid ass clips happening to the best team in europe but i guess they just lack the skills u do
now thats a cherry picked situation cause its bat shit retarded thats even happening, but the point is that it could happen and some kind of retardation happens all the time now that people are just switching to pyro at random times without any thought usually just because they are bored and then end up reflecting a rocket into a med with uber or killing like 3 people without really understanding what they're doing themselves, they're just bored and walking forward
Do you not see the irony that you're telling me I can't criticize Thalash because he's better than me, while criticizing me, while I'm better than you?
Nobody is perfect and even the best players make mistakes constantly. If you think that top level players don't make mistakes, or they don't make mistakes that people worse than them can recognize, I don't even know what to tell you.
He didn't die because he was too slow, he died because he walked into the flamethrower. It was easily preventable and he fucked up, the end.
these ppl making these vids arent trying to show us how they out brained the other team, gink and dark necrid and all the other ppl making these vids are just showing all the dumb and shitty stuff u can just get away with now
What the video's author intended is irrelevant. The fact of the matter is that they succeeded because the Pyro's victims fucked up incredibly simple things, like, for instance, walking into a Phlog Pyro when he has crits, or not juggling a Pyro who can't airblast and is holding W.
if this update came out in 2009 tf2 wouldn't of got to where it is today, not only because of what its done to 6s but mainly what its done to pubs. the reason why my last post was significant was because pubbers have gotten worse like a lot worse because they rely on this shit a lot more and they end up with like -6 k/ds and struggle and rage in chat when their shit doesn't work. when i was pubbing and shit it wasn't like that at all and ppl were always trying to do new shit like new rocket jumps and trick stabs what have u but now if you pub and u see someone doing that its just a competitive player u recognise from somewhere else.
wat this leads to is no players coming to play comp because they understand that they aren't good enough to despite knowing what comp is now. the average pubber now knows what comp is most likely because as a youtuber and twitch streamer b4nny has pretty much replaced the role star_ had, moreso on twitch, like if u have the word like 'b4nny' in your name or 'lft', a pubber nowadays will know what that is and understand that you are a comp level player and thats how they understand why you're better, but if u don't and you're doing well, you're a hacker, because the skillfloor of the pubber has decreased by that much.
and ofc, the perception of the game changes when people see all this dumb shit happening. people have kind of just accepted that tf2 isn't going anywhere so theres not really any debate, but there used to be, as in ppl from my school would play CS and stuff would say the usual 'this game is for children and its easy' and then u would show them some MGE or shadowburn frag vid and they wouldn't think like that anymore, but if they saw gink's vid they would go back to how they were thinking before.
Here is STAR's most popular video.
Show your friends this and ask them if TF2 looks like a competitive game.
I also don't understand where you're going with this. Iatgink doesn't have the following of Banny or STAR, and if they watched Banny today they'd be far more likely to appreciate competitive TF2 than if they watched STAR's youtube in 2009 or whatever. I can find hundreds of videos that depict TF2 as a silly casual game from 2009 that have at least as many views as that Pyro clip.
As for the argument that there are less competitive players in pubs which leads to less awareness of competitive TF2 in pubs, it's far more likely due to the horribleness of Casual matchmaking and the death of community servers stopping competitive players from pubbing. That's what's deterred me and most people I know who have taken a step back from pubbing.
u can pretend like no one thinks that about TF2 all u want but its very very common that ppl think that way about this game and this pyro shit isn't helping whatsoever, its actually making no part of the game better than it was before the update and 90% of the community as well as myself would much rather be playing the game before the update
I would too. That doesn't equate to banning Pyro.
ya, u can just press s but thats not fun and not needed in the game. its one dimensional as much as it makes the pyro ineffective and awkward that you have to adjust your own play style just to fight this class and that everyone has to adjust it in the same plain and boring way.
ya, u can just press s but thats not fun
I don't think I need to go any further.
