#37 RGL S5 Post-Season Survey in TF2 General Discussion
zandastalemate:

stab demo ---> shoot medic for 102

he pretty much has to use because he drops to like one more shot. at least with revolver you have to hit 3-4 shots. if you succeed you have a demo pick AND fully uber ad. if you fail you have a demo pick and the med is 30hp. obviously you wont always get the stab but it's still pretty dumb

I agree with this line of thought but not the conclusion that it's "dumb". Personally I think having shorter stalemates and another option to break them is worth the cost of being mildly annoyed when enemy spies have a little more power to make a big play.

Also worth noting that (at least according to the tf2 wiki) DB only does 34 base damage, you have to be point blank to get the ramp up for a max of 51 damage on a noncrit shot, so medics are not necessarily dead to rights upon getting crit given that health regen exists.

nablawhy would u want to give a spy that gets a sap/stab even more value tho

those things are already crazy good

also ur just incentivizing a spy to stab a roamer or a similar low value pick if the other team is aware so he can try to cheese with the crits

I should probably clarify that I mean 6s specifically here, DB is still too strong in HL IMO because of the abundance of buildings to sap and overall chaos.

Sapping a gun in 6s has very low value honestly, you are both revealing that you are on spy and not actually killing anything. Best case scenario with that is you sap a gun to help your team get in on a last push, but in that case wouldn't you be better off on soldier or scout anyways? Is the ability to do 102 damage once going to make more than a small difference in the resulting teamfight?

If a spy stabs a scout/soldier in a 6s stalemate and gets away that's honestly a failure of the defending team to punish the spy play. Even if that happens, what then? The attackers take a 6v5 teamfight with a spy that can do 102 once and then be next to useless the rest of the fight?

On a different note, my unpopular opinion for the day is that diamondback is fine to unban.

"BUT HE CAN TWO SHOT MY MEDIC!"

Okay, the spy needs a kill or a sap to get the crit though. If your team is not on red alert and melting the spy after the first stab, the diamondback is not the issue here.

Will it make spies a little more effective? Probably, yeah. But when spies are effective they break stalemates. You're telling me a 5 minute sniper duel is better gameplay than that? Personally I wouldn't mind buffing spy a bit.

Anyone know the command for changing round timer? Some of us want to try the 5 min round timer out in scrims so we can have an actual opinion on it

#5 heat wave - a tftv community frag video in Videos

you had great frags and high production quality, thoroughly enjoyed it!

If you want to keep learning and making more videos, my personal recommendation would be to experiment with different Field of View settings for your smooths/cines and with figuring out how to make transitions between clips feel more smooth and natural

alright if my team had shut up when i told them to i would have heard the med walk by!!

could have been better camerawork from me tbh, I'm not sure the viewers understood in the moment that your screen had to be 100% wall to make that spot work

#1 Democall: Main 6s RGL S5 in Videos

Hi there, I'm making a fragmovie of the best plays in Main this season (S5). I've been organizing it mainly through a community discord server but thought I'd crosspost here as well since I know a significant number of players aren't in that server or don't frequent it.

the tl;dr for submission:
-I'm looking for your absolute best plays of the season - in matches or scrims!
-Please rename your demo in the format alias_briefdescription (e.g. habib_blinddet4k)
-Give me the tick number for each play you send
-I heavily prefer POV demos if it's a hitscan clip
-Post a download link here to submit (via google drive, dropbox, meganz, etc.)

More detailed guidelines here if you need clarification on anything:

Show Content
DETAILED SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
-I need a demo of your play so I can record it. I'll accept STV demos but please send me the POV demo if you have it, (especially if it's hitscan!!)

-For each demo, please give me a tick# and brief description of the play (e.g. "scout fast 4k tick 45000" or "sick double airshot tick 60000"). I'm not going to watch through an hour long demo to find your play

-Because of the size of the div, I'm looking for your absolute sickest plays of the season. If every player in the div submits even 1 demo I'll have 144 demos, which is already an insane amount, so be picky! I'll take 5 demos max from any individual, make em count!

-When submitting, please rename your demo file to the format alias_briefdescription (e.g. ikpure_sniper5k) to help me with organization

-You can submit any demo from any 6s scrims or matches with your team(s?) this season. If there's important context - it's from a match, playoff match, golden cap, you literally saved the match, etc. - please mention it in your brief description of the frag!

-Feel free to submit stuff early if you'd like but IMO it makes the most sense for you to go through all your demos and then submit whenever your team's season ends (reg season end or playoffs knockout)

Lastly, if you think I don't mean BUSINESS when I edit, here's a sample of my work: https://youtu.be/FkVNtkHpp3M

#12 Soala LFT in Recruitment (looking for team)

I have now played almost an entire season with Soala and I've yet to see him tilt. He struggled a little early in the season with dying at bad times but was able to take that feedback and mature into an even better player. I can't speak to his medic play personally but at the risk of repeating myself, he's grown a lot this season and is a great pickup for your Main team if you're looking for a soldier.

Not something that'd be useful for me personally but as DanceNumber said, if this is successful and then they add a comp 6s and HL queue it could be a great pipeline to get people into comp
