#28 RCADIA FORTRESS HAMBURG: Feedback Thread! in LAN Discussion

I did not catch most of the LAN on the stream. Feedback:
Make the date of the event clearer. In this article https://www.teamfortress.tv/62310/rcadia-fortress-tf2-community-lan the date is first mentioned in the 4th paragraph. I think it should be in the first paragraph.
I saw an interview with 2 swedes. The volume difference between the host and the swedes was massive. Should probably do a sound check before interviews.

#77 i69: Day 3 - Finals in Events

I think most people here are too fast to a conclution. The statement "An agressive strategy is more effective at winning than a passive strategy, because Froyo beat WG" is not sound. Lets say WG executed their passive strategy with a 90% efficiency, and Froyo executed their agressive strategy with 97% efficiency. This can mean that when perfected a passive strategy is better. And the main reason Froyo won is due to that they were better at executing their strategy, not because the strategy it self is better. Froyo is a well established team where multiple members have LAN experience and they have played together for years. Even with the roster mixup they got players who are experienced playing with B4nny and habib. I don't think it is unreasonable to expect Froyo to execute their strategy better than WG.

The idea stated in an earlier post "WG will change their playstyle if they keep loosing" is also a bit questionable in my opinion. In theory it makes sense, however if there is no changes of the value B on a scale from 1 to 10 WG will not lose until next i-series and not change their playstyle. For this to happen WG needs to lose multiple times, losing once a year might not be enough. Between i46 and i49 this happened. We saw the huge ass changes Darn predicted. EU started using gunboats and soldier play started getting more agressive. NA started using quick fix and their playstyle slowed down. I don't think losing i69 will have the same effect on EU tf2 as losing i46 did. I have no idea if WG will think "We lost because we did not execute our gameplan good enough" or "We lost because our gameplan was bad". This will not be an easy question to answer because the dataset is small.

It is really hard to balance the game to make the most effective gameplan the most fun to watch. Maps have to be designed so the team setting up a push can force the defending team to make an opening. However if its to easy its boring. The pushes have to have a success rate high enough for the team to be able to use openings that are given. However the defender also needs to be able to have a successful hold. Failing a push has to be punishing enough for the defendinwever if it isg team to go agressive and gain map control. Ho too punishing teams will wait longer for a better opening before pushing. There are so many elements that have to be balanced. Considering we play a game the developers don't update, and when they do they do not focus on 6vs6, it is hard to make it so that the most effective way to play is the most fun to watch.

#3 TF2 Competitive Trivia Thread in TF2 General Discussion

Multiplay wanted the i49 grand final to be on their twitch stream, considering they were the main sponsor for the event. The stream did not run at all and most of the first map got casted on twitter. The rest of the LAN was casted on vanilla tv without much technical problems. Arguably one of the worst PR atempts in TF2.

#42 iron bombe nerf for etf2l season 41 in TF2 General Discussion
MightyMe
Cool video, thanks for sharing. Learned something new.
So thats the reason everybody has been playing with this weapon instead of stock lately.

Also. I feel like the projectiles fly faster/in a more straight line versus stock, is that true?

Short answer: Yes'nt

Long answer:

Source engine simulates aerodynamic drag on demoman primary weapons. All pipes have the same mass. The size of the loose cannon ball gives it a lot of drag and makes it the slowest ignoring higher projectile speed. For the iron bomber drag is calculated as if the projectile is a stock pipe. The loch-n-load flies like an arrow and have less drag than iron bomber ignoring higher projectile speed.

YeeHaw I can't think of many good players who couldn't go to LAN at least once anyway.

Adamracek is the first one i can think off.

#46 NA Invite Top 100: #5-#1 in News

Good job writing all this, it has been fun looking back at the names from the past. Would be cool to have a bit more clips from multiple players. I would rather have most players with one clip linked than some people with four and the rest with nothing. The argument that clockwork and b4nny have comparable stats on scout i think should favor clockwork more than b4nny. Considering the amount of healing and ubers b4nny takes i think it is even more impressive that clockwork was able to keep up with b4nnys stats. Good job to beater for the legacy videos.

Writing a similar list for other continets i think would be more difficult. Froyo can be used as a reference for all other teams for the past 7(?) years, while in ETF2L winning teams tend to fold or have core players reitre more often making it harder to compare over time.

#38 TF2 Toxicity in TF2 General Discussion

I want to give credit to the jumping community. I have seen people use hours on a tier 3 map, and when they finally finnish multiple people congratulate them on the run. People in the jump community also just likes giving tips for people to improve. Never experienced toxicity in a jump server.

#738 Formula 1 Megathread in Off Topic

I don't like the steward desicions at the austrian grand prix 2019 with verstappen forcing leclerc off the track in turn 3. Defensive driving shoud be about forcing the competetor off the racing line, not off the race track. Over the last couple of years i feel like overtakes are just being slightly ahead of the other driver at the apex, then force them of the track. And if the guy that was forced off the track gets out in front, we hear "He overtook me off the track. He has to give the positon back" at the radio. No way we would see anything like Arnoux vs Villeneuve in France 1979 by modern drivers.

#676 Formula 1 Megathread in Off Topic

Why do race director give message to car in front to let the car behind go by first? If the race director had said to mercedes first "We will tell Max to give the space back" and then tell redbull "Tell Max to give Lewis the space back" there would be no chaos like what happened. The only reasons for not doing this is it might make the gap between the cars a bit bigger than if they are telling the leaders first. They should have safety and clearity prioritized over someone having to slow down for a bit longer to give back a place.

JojolucrativePhantomi mean i'll wait til it's out but alex.exe not being on it sounds incredibly terrible if there's gonna be some pocket soldier from 2009 who could barely rocket jump on it in his place
I still and will always disagree with this take lol any of those players that were good "back then" if continued to play would have adapted and learned new mechanics and new meta, the game wasn't even remotely the same between any of these era's. we have also seen lots of players from super long ago continue to play and continue to be on top and learn new mechanics/metas (people like blaze come to mind)

I disagree with the idea of giving people credit for "if they had continued to play" yeah of course people with 10 years of experience would have an advantage compared to if they only played for a couple years, but they didn't and that's that. Now of course in a list like this we should give people credit for relative to their time skill level which is why old players are going to make it on the list at all. This is sort of what makes this list subjective fun(and therefore not really worth arguing about because tery and the people he consulted might just value things a little differently than other people) rather than something that can be looked at as objective fact.

There have been old top tier players returning and preforming at a competetive level. I think TLR left tf2 for multiple years before joining froyo and playing on international LANs. Alfa has also had long breaks and instantly played in playoffs when returning. Raymon was away from prem for years before joining crowns (or se7en), and when he returned many people considered him the best medic in the world. There are also examples of people returning and not being as good as they used to. i49 Shocky was a beast that, and while he was still a prem playoffs contender when he came back, i can not see a maincaller say "Shocky go on flank and 2 vs 1 their roamer and flank scout" like KnoxXx said back in the day.
