#8 What do you wish you had realized/learned sooner? in TF2 General Discussion

it's not a good thing to underrate yourself, don't be emo

you might think you're avoiding people thinking you have an ego, but all you're really doing is removing challenge for yourself, and if you're not challenged you will not improve, if anything it just cements terrible habits in both your mechanics and mindset

remember to always bring it, remember you get better by losing, and remember that someone has to be the worst player on the team. it's not a reason to leave the team. I've left most good teams I've ever been on to 'avoid holding them back' but what I should have been doing was striving to improve instead, be smarter than me

also, the shortcut to getting good is pugchamp

#257 The Mouse/Mousepad Thread v2 in Hardware

hi anyone know decent gamer gaming mouse that is highly ergonomic?

when I try to find one I either find ones with trackballs or just standard 'right hand ergonomic' shapes, I'm looking for one that is sort of highly angled like those vertical mice, but I would like one with a decent sensor, doesn't really have to be perfect because I can't really aim anyway but I'd rather it was

#7 cooking thread in Off Topic

if you're into baking too, try how to cook that, I know she's more well known for the debunking videos on so yummy and blossom, but the actual baking videos are really good. Quite advanced sometimes with decoration but you don't need to do all of that.

I grab most of my dinner recipes from le creuset books/leaflets or bbc good food, the le creuset website has a selection of recipes too which you can sort by main ingredient, which I find is really useful inspiration if you have some meat in the fridge that you don't know what to do with, and you can pick up the leaflets in store for free.
since they're adverts for the cookware there's a lot of single pan recipes which is nice if you're just cooking a daily meal and you don't want to have loads of stuff on the go, or you just have a tiny kitchen :-)

#31 Happy thoughts 2019 in Off Topic

i succeeded my new years resolutions which were to sort my health, sort my university situation, increase flexibility and get back in the gym -> about 2 weeks ago I got the go ahead from my doctor to lift again, I expect to be able to hit the front splits in a few months once I break my plateau, and right now it's looking alright for uni, though I said that 2 years back too

#84 How would you nerf scout? in TF2 General Discussion

the biggest problem is just that scout has the highest skill ceiling and the progression in skill just doesn't really line up

people tend to forget that it was only 5 years back that scouts started to actually leave the ground, when I first started (2009 boomer player) the attitude was 100% that double jumping was shit because it was predictable and you were just dead if you did that. I used to get told off by teamleaders for practicing my movement in surf even in 2012/3 because it was just seen as pointless
2015 there were still plenty of mid level scouts that couldn't even airstrafe in europe, which is completely unimaginable now but that is the reality. It wasn't even considered weird. That's not even to say how much aim has improved.

nowadays I'm shocked regularly the way scouts spin around or stop midair as the rocket comes out, while killing you in 3 shots maximum, purely because the difference between now and when I started is night and day.

meanwhile soldier, although everyone has of course gotten way better, the level of movement of everyone and especially medics and demos has gone up so severely. in about 2015 there were pretty much no medics outside of prem who could even really surf properly and a basic surf nowadays was seen as pretty special stuff
and although the rocket aim has of course gotten much better, the jumps haven't, purely because soldiers always gonna be limited by those 4 rockets. even back then forsaken was doing the speedshot bombs on gully, so because of that it just gets harder and harder to actually get onto the target to use the hard aim action, as the jump map jump progression just isn't real game viable most of the time

just my opinion though

#158 My Story With Dashner: A Thread in TF2 General Discussion
Starkieit's incredibly easy to take this standpoint when it's not you or your friends who'll be affected by information coming out

it takes a lot of trust to tell anyone about this sort of thing. breaking promises you make to someone about something so personal and going public is a great way to make sure no one ever speaks up

yes you have a moral duty to make sure more people don't get hurt but you also have a moral duty to not hurt your friend already in a fragile state. it's up to the victim to speak up

following this, it's incredibly important to watch the other perspective. it's also really easy to make the argument when you're looking through hindsight and you're thinking about all the ways that this could have been avoided.

but then say you go public with this information, without permission, and then you have a situation where the person commits suicide directly because you did that. This can and does happen. You're then going to be taking the moral view that the person who went public and exposed this was directly responsible for the death of a person. Just because tagg feels bad it doesn't necessarily mean going public is correct. He's not going to feel fine with the worst case scenario happening, just because he took the moral stand.

like don't get me wrong it's a massive deal and these people should be expunged from the community and high scrutiny is absolutely warranted. you're right there. The thing I take issue with is the idea that there is a 100% correct way to deal with this kind of thing. In this situation, maybe you're right, maybe you're not. I am not uberchain so I can't say what kind of effects the other route would have had, but the results of this kind of thing can be absolutely catastrophic. There's no way to be sure that the route in any given situation is the right one or will cause the least damage. even if you're right here, you can be wrong next time.
