#228 nerf pyro in TF2 General Discussion

Probably about 70% of my playtime was in pubs, but I've given up. Full of retards just walking at you through doorways and dealing 150 damage in about a second by flailing their mouse. If you correctly guess where they are through the blinding flames and hit your shots perfectly then you maybe trade with them.

Stick to your guns, BarryChuckle.

I realised too late it was a videogames opinion thread and not a tf2 opinion thread

#38 Stalin, the greatest Russian leader of all time? in Off Topic

Just to add: he wasn't a great war leader. His ability to delegate and willingness to listen to advice from his Generals was what ultimately won in the Eastern Front.

Infact, most of the blame for the disasterous start to the war for the USSR can be laid at Stalin's feet: He purged Red Army officers in the '30s, he insisted on deploying huge armies right on the border (which were then encircled and effectively wiped out in the first few weeks of war), he refused to believe intel that a German attack was imminent and refused to allow his generals to mobilise for war, and he suffered a total breakdown and sat in his Dacha in a state of complete listless depression afdter the Germans attacked, leaving the country completely leaderless for several days until he pulled himself together.

#37 Stalin, the greatest Russian leader of all time? in Off Topic

Of all Russian leaders, Stalin was the greatest administrator. By far.

Paranoid, bloodthirsty, ruthless, genocidal, power-hungry and traitor to the revolution, sure. But that guy knew how to delegate and how to organize.

If your task is to argue he is the best leader you should probably focus on this as trying to deny he was a monster is a losing battle. Look at his rise to power as general secretary, a post previously thought to be just secretarial (pun intended) but which he used to gradually consolidate power within the party. Look at his various economic plans such as the 5-year plan, his implementation of the GULAG system, restructuring of the Red Army, roadbuilding, canal building, factory development, various economic plans (such as the 5-year plan), the relocation of entire factory complexes to the East of the Urals in the face of the rapid German advance. Also look at the amount of incredible talent that he was able to foster. Molotov is arguably one of the most successful foreign ministers of all time. Zhukov, Rokossovsky, Vasilevsky and Timoshenko could all individually stake a reasonable claim to be the greatest general of all time and the fact they all emerged in that era under that leader may not be a coincidence.

Stalin's genius was ultimately organizational. Your argument should close by looking at the state of the USSR at the time of his rise to power and compare it to the state of the USSR at his death. No single nation in history (except maybe Genghis Khan's empire) has so quickly grown in strength over the tenure of one person's leadership. By this metric it's impossible to argue any other Russian leader as greater than him, not even Muscovy under Ivan the Terrible.

Looking forward to England drawing 2 games, losing to Belgium, then going out in the groups because someone wins the Tunisia vs Panama match.

#683 update is released in TF2 General Discussion

Pessimistic prediction: jetpack bombs from overhealed pyros who are good at airblasting will be too difficult to defend against, as any airshot attempts will involve a huge risk of the pyro dropping your med with minicrits. Community will suggest "reflects do not minicrit while airborne" stat for all flamethrowers. Despite it being a relatively small change to implement, Valve will not rebalance for several months leading to jetpack being banned in 6v6 and we all end up back to square one.

#12 brewing in Off Topic

Assuming you're talking about beer.

The basics of brewing are really, really simple. Tiny variations in this brewing process can result in starkly different flavours in the final brew. Nobody will expect you to know the quirks of their particular "brew", as long as you are familiar with the basic process. Wikipedia should be fine for this. Any brew process is just a variation on the basics: learn these and you should be fine and won't look like an idiot.

Other things to look into are:

The differences between cold fermentation lager brews and traditional ale brews.
The different hop varieties (usually categorised into old-world and new-world hops) and what flavours are associated with them eg: citrus, floral.
What malt is, and how different ways of cooking it affects the flavour, and the colour (eg: burnt/ roasted malts producing dark chocolatey beers and porters)
The difference between fined/unfined (hazy) beers and the techniques used to produce clear beers.
Look into some alternative substrates eg: wheat beers and how these are made.

Again, a quick google search or wikipedia article should be fine. The beauty is that every brewing process is different so you really only need to familiarise yourself with the basics to not come off as a noob, because nobody will expect you to know the eccentricities of their particular process until it is taught to you. In other words, don't worry!

#53 Shade's Perfect Game in TF2 General Discussion

Seeing Sal being toxic to people for flimsy reasons in tftv threads is so familiar now.... it's kinda just become warm and comforting to see.

Time to rethink my life.

#78 Who is the best tf2 caster of all time and why in TF2 General Discussion

Admirable because he is the only caster past and present who has been able to consistently identify and call out cheeky plays.
