#24 Time for Na & Eu to start using the same ruleset ? in TF2 General Discussion

For the people who think it's EU ruleset which is making Crowns play slow, think back to the days of HRG and especially this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OalWDhYfdeg&ab_channel=ggglygy (granted, this was combined with the quick-fix at the time to make it even worse).

Both have pros and cons in different situations, particularly both rulesets encourage passivity in different scenarios. I personally prefer EU ruleset but maybe that's just because I'm used to it. Saam's compromise actually seems quite good (some compromises would just take the worst of both worlds, I don't think this one would), though 30 minute maps are so convenient scheduling-wise for scrims that the timing would be a slight downside.

#91 Everyone thank the production team ITT in TF2 General Discussion

Production was absolutely amazing! Bar some audio issues which got resolved after a while, it seemed to be pretty much flawless (I wouldn't put server issues on production). The analyst desk managed to be both serious enough to be informative and useful, and yet funny and entertaining enough to get the audience through a lot of the delays - I think the combination of getawhale and war worked really well for that dynamic, and CX and admirable seem to fit in no matter what. Extine brought a lot of energy to the interviews, twitch chat loved the YAOOOOO's and it made for a great change in pace after long talks by the analysis desk. Obviously the casters also delivered great stuff as expected, and it's quite impressive their voices didn't die halfway through the event.

What impressed me the most was the smoothness of the transitions between these different sections. It kept the variety of the stream up, and seemed really well done, which contributed so much to the overall professional feel of the broadcast. I'm guessing a lot of behind-the-scenes work went into all of it, but seeing as it's behind-the-scenes, I wouldn't know too much about it. All I can say for sure is that everyone, both on the stream and behind the scenes, seemed to be doing really well, and seemed to be in exactly the right position for what they can bring to the stream. Amazing work by the entire team, hope to see the same quality (or, if somehow this trend of improving each year continues, even better) next year!

#15 kid demoman/spanked AMA #i58 in TF2 General Discussion

Will you have a sick 18th birthday party with the tf2 community featuring representatives from around the world, or is two weeks in advance too much of a stretch for that?

I miss the days of casts going to team mumbles and having the players say politically incorrect things.

#26 Significant FPS increase with dx98 in Customization

i5 6600k, no OC
gtx970
1080p
comanglia config

949 frames 5.935 seconds 159.91 fps ( 6.25 ms/f) 20.742 fps variability
dxlevel 90

949 frames 5.000 seconds 189.79 fps ( 5.27 ms/f) 29.809 fps variability
dxlevel 98

Should be noted I use a random pub demo instead of benchmark1, due to skins and all that jazz. Also I seem to remember reading somewhere dxlevel 90 isn't actually supported by tf2 and whenever you put it in launch options it defaults to something else instead, but it's a big 'citation needed' on that one. Can anyone confirm/deny?

#3 [Stream] Forty-Two in Requests

Sorry for bumping my old thread, but I have made a new twitch account which actually matches my ingame name: twitch.tv/fortytwotf2. Is there any chance of getting my old listing as spinazie switched to this new channel?

#83 how has your tf2 career changed you? in TF2 General Discussion

Surprisingly I've become significantly less shit at social situations by playing competitive TF2. It also made working in a team (beyond the classic 'you do X I do Y' kind of thing) feel a lot more natural. Circlejerks have a very high impact on finding a team, and it actually prepares a bit for networking in general which you might need to do professionally. Leading a team can be incredibly frustrating at times, but is also a useful thing to have experienced.

So I guess I would say playing a videogame helped to teach me some people skills.

#88 The Highlander Open #2 Sponsored in TF2 General Discussion

It's a fair point to say the timing for a Highlander event is awkward when you want to be ready to play into the 6v6 matchmaking official release. I can definitely see the reason in that, and I would say it's an entirely legitimate criticism.

That said, I don't see the reason in people saying that Highlander players in general should stop playing and/or supporting highlander and play 6v6 instead, for the good of TF2 as a whole. Quite possibly it would increase TF2's popularity or 'power' as a whole. But it would also involve players who prefer Highlander to stop playing that, and to instead play something they don't enjoy or enjoy less. Even if you could manage to get people to artificially boost the interest in 6v6 that way, it would be founded on people who don't, truly, enjoy the gamemode that much. People will support the gamemode they like, and if X amount of people prefer Highlander over 6v6, then that's what they should be supporting.
The comparison has been made before, but the same argument could be made for TF2 players to stop playing TF2 and instead support CSGO with all their hearts, so that FPS games can finally get the same amount of publicity as MOBA's. Or everyone should go support MOBA's in order to further solidify e-sports in the entertainment industry. At all levels it would be possible to say 'if group xyz were to join the largest and most influential group, then this would benefit the scene as a whole'. It's entirely possible you're right that that unity would lend the scene more power, but that isn't going to change the players' preferences. I don't think people should support something they don't like, simply for the sake of artificially boosting numbers that ultimately only benefit the thing they support, and not the thing they like themselves.

tl;dr: Bad timing when 6v6 is about to get a lot of promotion from the release of matchmaking, fair point. Guilt tripping highlander players into completely dropping a gamemode they truly enjoy, and instead artificially supporting something they don't genuinely enjoy, not a fair point at all.

#246 Rest In Peace Britian in World Events

It makes sense to not make the new agreements too favorable. Allowing the UK to freeride off the EU's benefits while not having to make any of the investments for it might benefit both economies a bit more in the short term, but it would also encourage other member states to do the same. I'm pretty sure that, once a fair amount of counties try to reap the benefits without sharing in the costs of the EU, the whole system would just fall flat on its face. This is why I think the promised trade agreements are likely to be a significant downgrade from what was there before.
