#149 2nd Place B4nny in TF2 General Discussion
GazWhat exactly is the issue?

There isn't really an issue and I think we can all move on without getting hurt. If certain members of nerdRage want to continue being keyboard warriors then so be it, I advise their opponents to just mute them if they become an annoyance. It's not like any of your taunts have any backbone behind them anyway. After the S38 Grand Finals for example, as soon as production invites your team to a post-game interview on stream and politely asks you to be respectful, the players on your team that were either personally attacking the enemy team as a whole or targeting individual players including yourself instantly submitted to their plea and refrained from doing so again during said interview - A point in time where your words would have carried the most weight behind them.

#132 2nd Place B4nny in TF2 General Discussion
clckwrk
You have to pay for the flight there (at this point in time, it's probably at least $1000 from the closest places in NA, hundreds more as you go west), the hotel, the transportation, the food, and lastly, the drinks, who almost everyone will partake in, as you don't just go halfway across the world to not socialize and have fun. If you have all the money settled, and you actually want to attend, you have to take off of work that Monday and likely Thursday/Friday, maybe even Wednesday if you decide you don't want to spend only 3 days at a tournament where you'll be playing for almost 2 entire days. In reality, for those who work regular schedules, you're losing even more money than simply the amount of the flights, travel, and LAN.

I really enjoyed going the first couple of times (the second time only because I met everyone I hadn't met the first time), but any amount more and it becomes kind of tiring. You dread the travel, you dread playing day 1 from like 9 am to midnight the next day on jetlag and minimal sleep, you dread the loss of money. It's not like it's some kind of fucking conspiracy that no one wants to go, as if you're all better people who would die for a chance to go to LAN and you're disappointed that everyone on froyo is missing this deal of a lifetime. Yeah, no shit, it would be your first time there, you're thinking entirely hypothetically, and you have no idea what the process actually entails. Once you've experienced everything, it can become not only overwhelming, but you can easily think of more reasons to not attend than to attend. And as banny says, if one person doesn't want to go, it becomes a domino effect. One person not wanting to go makes the next person, who thinks his presence invaluable, uninterested in attending. If you're going to spend money out of pocket to miss days of work and attend a LAN in Europe, you're going to want to do it correctly, with a real roster.

I don't agree with the idea that b4nny is a LAN dodger though - Given clockwork's insight on attending European TF2 LANs in his time it's pretty understandable as to why b4nny wouldn't want to travel to Europe again to play at insomnia, for instance.

I'm assuming you mean the blocky lighting? Try alias lightmaps_override in your autoexec

#11 Help : Weird bug, frames tanking (only on comp) in Q/A Help

I've also been having stutters similar to that you have just described, audio crackling and frame stuttering. I'm using mastercomfig low. I've recently verified the game files and I think that might have been the cause but we'll see.

#4 rahThread: -dxlevel 81 vs. -dxlevel 100 in TF2 General Discussion

Use whatever you prefer. I personally prefer the look of dx8 and have gotten used to it. I also get higher frame counts in mastercoms' benchmark in dx8 even on a modern high-end PC, though this doesn't mean my game will technically be running "better" compared to if I was playing in dx9 - According to mastercoms dx9 usually has better resource utilization, which consequently gives you a smoother and more responsive game. I've switched between the two many times and don't really feel any noticeable difference other than aesthetics honestly.

#32 MGE: Shotty or Gboats in TF2 General Discussion

As for Soldier vs Scout, it really doesn't matter. If the Scout is always approaching you from mid-range its a winning matchup for the soldier regardless of the map or loadout. If you're playing soldier and are shotgun switching however, you can only lose if you're whiffing like crazy or if the scout decides to play super defensive and is able to outplay you by hiding around corners/chipping at you from a distance, which is not possible on the smaller maps. Shotgun switching in my opinion is super counter-productive for both players, anything else is acceptable and effective practice in my opinion.

#5 i think i have a fear of failure in Off Topic

Everybody fails, though failure is not a bad thing. You can't blame yourself if you've tried your best, that's what really counts. In all the hobbies that I've been recently enjoying, failure never brings me down. In practice, I've become too focused and engrossed in the present to care about all the times that I've messed up. I still have hobbies that I want to try and would enjoy though I still struggle to find my mind in the present when doing these activities. It's difficult - and stress targets the past and the future - reminding you of your failures or pressuring you into thinking that you might fail. My advice is to be mindful of your surroundings, take a step back and absorb the world around you. What gives you responsibility? What makes you want to get up and move forward and do something positive without thinking too much about the possibility of not succeeding? For me at the moment, it's doing low intensity walks instead of going to the gym and doing high intensity strength training. I don't need to worry about my form for instance, or how much weight I'm lifting, or if I should have tried harder on the previous set. Just throwing in my two cents, I hope this helped a little.

#5 EssentialsTF VODs in Videos

Thank you for the response :D

Unfortunately I was not aware of what happened with the i65 VODs until now. However, I'm glad that they weren't lost and that my general feedback has been noted.

#1 EssentialsTF VODs in Videos

Since KritzKast has recently been criticised for being rather tardy with regards to uploading their Twitch VODs on YouTube, I would therefore like to request that the EssentialsTF Twitch channel should also revise their schedule for carrying out such procedures. The VODs for i65 for example, were uploaded about 7 months after the event had taken place and was streamed. I believe the community will greatly appreciate any further efforts concerning Essentials and their YouTube VODs, whether it would be transferring coverage of either online or offline matches from the past. Thanks for reading, I give my respects to the Essentials team and their associates.
