#15 what happened to warmfront in Map Discussion

I knew CP ashville was going to be glorious when I saw whatever team ma3la was on the season it was introduced opt never to push off last and just time the round out repeatedly. Then for the only time that I really recall, that became the "meta" for the rest of the season and we all just quietly forgot that map and the horrible things it made us do after its week was done.

#9 what happened to warmfront in Map Discussion

Warmfront was a fun map - particularly the mid. There were attempts to transform it into a sort of KOTH map after it fell out of favor, but I don't think that materialized very effectively. I also really liked the second point.

The main reasons it was removed:

Last was very unpopular. It's huge, so the "tag-bomb" rinse repeat was really hard to execute if impossible to use effectively given the distance you had to close (prolane and freight had a similar issue). On the defending side, if you lost most of your team defending, it was really difficult to push out to second because of how much distance you needed to cover to get to second, and how relatively exposed you were on the point once you got there.

During LAN Enigma held middle by getting a heavy on house which made it extraordinarily difficult to push middle and foiled many pushes, even those with advantage - simply because heavy is pretty good when he has the high ground and is in a defensive setting. Gullywash/Badlands have similarly good heavy spots at mid, but are big enough you can get around him, your options are more limited in on warmfront, but some of its effectiveness is related purely to the LAN environment and how rare heavy play is/was.

Some people complained about the FPS performance loss on the map due to lack of optimization present in the map at the time.

There was a hilarious strategy that was actually used wherein you could have your scouts drink crit-a-cola and stand with the short stop at the top ramp on mids and any soldier that jumped just got instantly vaporized lol.

#104 so are y'all gonna be voting for joe biden now in Off Topic

Hey there Snack, I'll explain some of the stuffs.

Yes, there are third party candidates. In some states they are able to get onto the ballot, but typically they do not and you have to write their name into a blank space below the candidates which got onto the ballot. The difficulty of doing that varies from state to state. In my state, Indiana, the Secretary of State has to approve names which can be written in the blank space, if they are not an approved candidate, your vote is not counted.

Spoiled and null ballots aren't really discussed here, but participation rate definitely is. My personal intention is to show up to vote for several local offices (who generally run as either Republican or Independent) and leave the rest blank. It's also important to do this in Indiana because if you miss an election your name will be purged from the register and you'll have to go re-register to vote in the next election which is a pain.

#12 I want to become a TF2 caster. How do I start? in TF2 General Discussion

You pick a match - doesn't really matter which - and you commentate it solo. Then you record that using some cheapo software, and post it to youtube, then you post to TF.TV and make your thread title something akin to "Casting Advice" and you post a link to your video you made of you casting, and leave an explaination that you'd like some help.

As long as it's not a tire fire, you should be casting in no time. Worked for me anyways ;)

To quote Stalin. Both are worse.

Trump is worse because he is Trump - a disgusting charlatan who represents all of the brokenness of a system which produces such men, whose only real talent is self promotion and filing bankruptcy, and then allows them to be president.

Biden is worse because he actively promises not to change anything when there are very clearly many broken things in the United States.

Biden is in danger not only because he alienates the left-wing of the Democratic party, but also because he is actively ceding the populist furor of our cultural moment to Trump. It also damages the Democratic Party to portray Trump supporters as proto-fascists who are white trash/hicks/hillbillies - because it exposes clearly that American liberals have an especial distaste for the lower class, in particular the rural lower class.

The proper course of action is to refuse to participate at all - withdraw consent.

#52 The TF2 Aimbot Crisis in Videos

The year was 2020, after being inadvertently killed by Valve, the TF2 community servers (lifeblood of the game) rise from the ashes due to lack of maintenance on Valve's part and a bot campaign being carried out for unknown reasons.

I remember a time when, on the SourceOP 24/7 goldrush server, if you were a regular user you could enter a command in chat which would ping the server admins on their phones to summon them into the server's chat to purge cheaters and reprobates immediately - they didn't even have to launch the game.

#46 Any confirmed corona cases in the tf2 community? in Off Topic

No cases where I live, but we had a county wide-meeting via teleconference and our hospital already reported that they're overwhelmed due to people erring on the side of caution and calling in.

We have to run these "simulations" we call Godzilla meetings every month as part of county government. About 2 years ago we had "virulent flu" as one of our issues - every single hospital employee and their families all died and we received a failing grade from the state. Hopefully the lessons we learned from that get put to good use.

#52 iowa caucus in World Events

Caucusing takes a long fucking time so voter turnout is usually really low, also, the Republicans didn't need to Caucus since nobody is really running against Trump. Also if you aren't registered to the party (which most people aren't) you aren't allowed to caucus to begin with.

#29 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

I mean kinda I guess :/ The *real* happy ending is that my electric company has established a 5 year plan to bring fiber optic lines down the power lines and the very day those guys connect to the pole outside my house I'm going to call Frontier and be about as happy as anybody ever could to call them and switch out.

#27 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

Update.

Called back today, I gave them my service ticket and explained the situation and that I had been previously disconnected when talking to customer service.

The first person put me on hold and did something for a while and then transferred me to her supervisor. This guy said:

"It's really good that you called back for this. This sort of thing happens sometimes where customers will notice problems with the lines near their house and then fix them after first calling in and not getting the sort of service time frame they would like. Then, when the tech shows up, he will just mark it completed without doing anything since the homeowner fixed it. So, I'll just add an addendum here for the tech to check the pole and the connection to the house and that it's no longer laying on the ground because you fixed it yourself - and they should do more than just show up and check it as complete."

They then thanked me for being the best part of Frontier - a slogan I've not heard before.

#26 Frontier Internet A Love Story in Off Topic

Update.

I contacted frontier via phone. They seemed in genuine shock that I rehung the phone lines myself. I asked if the tech would still come so they could reassign my router's phone jack (every jack in the house was dead until I decided to fuck with it - I've got the jack I want live, but it's not getting DSL through it) and check my work.

They hung up on me after confirming my details and reading the ticket aloud to me :(

Calling back today see if they'll "lose connection" again lol.
