#1 mech keyboards, what switches and why in Hardware

yo i am going to rant about mechanical keyboards and what u should get and what you should reconsider

WARNING: EVERY SWITCH, BOARD, MATERIAL, AND SOUND IS PREFERENCE! JUST BECAUSE I SAY IT, DOESN'T MEAN YOU'LL LIKE IT!

alright to begin, there are 3 main types of switches.
clicky (produces a click sound when activated)
linear (zero feedback, key goes straight down)
tactile (small bump is felt when activated)

CLICKY:
A lot of people are already familiar with click switches. They're the most marketed switch type there could possibly be. Loud, satisfying, and they don't differ much from any other clicky switch.
So, should I get clicky switches? Not necessarily. If you're a person that likes playing TF2 comp, chances are this might not be the choice for you. Loud, springy switches may annoy your teammates to death, even if you have push-to-talk enabled on whatever VoIP client you use. However, if you don't mind this or your mic is good, then here's some notable clicky switches you should consider and ones you should probably reconsider:

Good Clicks:
Cherry MX Blues
Kalih Box Jades
Kalih Box Navies
Kalih Box Pinks
Kalih Speed Bronze
Kalih Speed Pink
Razer Greens

Reconsiderable Clicks:
Outemu Blues
Gateron MX Blues

The reason Outemu and Gateron are not as quality as Cherry, is because Cherry was the original producer of the blues. Gateron and Outemu made their own versions after that.

LINEAR:
Linear switches are likely the most common switch when dealing with mech enthusiasts. They aren't great for gaming, but they are wonderful for typing. I personally use lubed Gateron Milk Yellows (generic ik) as they're very smooth and don't give me a lot of ping or scratch. So, that being said, what are some good linear switches? Keep in mind, most linears do not sound or feel great if you do not lube them.

Good linears:
Gateron Milk Yellows (cheapest)
Gateron Ink Red/Black/Blue V2s
Silent Linear/Linear Alpacas
Cherry MX Reds
Cherry MX Blacks
NovelKeys Cream
Healios
Tealios
Sakurios
Roselios

Reconsiderables:
any optical gateron linears

TACTILES:
Now for the last category. Tactile switches produce a small feedback when activated. Feedback varies on switch. That being said, here's some considerables.

Good Taccies:
NovelKeys Blueberry
Holy Pandas
Zealios
Durock T1s
Koala Tactiles
Glorious Pandas

Reconsiderables:
Cherry MX Brown
Kalih BOX Brown
Gateron Brown
Outemu Brown

this is basically my thoughts on some popular or unpopular switches, some will disagree and agree as that's just common when getting into mech boards
if u have a question you can ask me or ask r/mechanicalkeyboards or join a mech board discord as theres hundreds of those
or if you want to do your own research here's a switch data chart for tons of switches

#7 Halo vs Cherry Switches in Hardware
xattuuIm looking to buy a new keyboard, and for switches im trying to choose between Cherry Brown and Halo True/Clear. theres only like a $10 difference, does anybody have an opinion either way?

neither are going to give you any type of satisfaction, cherry browns are (popular opinion) scratchy and halo clears only sound good if lubed

#17 Discuss: RGL ignoring 6's? in TF2 General Discussion
mikematWhile we're at it, if no restriction sixes is dead enough to not even be listed under 'our leagues' can we stop calling 6s 'trad 6s'?

Agreed. Let's instead as a compromise call it Chad 6s.

#1 new experimental gamemode pugs in TF2 General Discussion

hi i am running a new pug server after 4s one died, we'll be changing gamemode rotation hopefully weekly to provide something fresh. Right now we're running 3v3 squads but we need more players, so if you wanna join, dm me on discord (you should be able to dm me if you're in the rgl or ugc discord server)

tux#0246

taking pugrunners as well so dm if you wanna do that

why other or unorthodox gamemodes? due to the oversaturation of constant 6s pugs spreading all across the world, i'd like to run a server where there isn't a consistent gamemode throughout it's lifespan.

i'd rather die then be the 543rd person to run a 6s server just for it to die, so come and join us for some epic Experimental Gamemode Pugs©

#1 Introducing 4v4 NA Pugs in TF2 General Discussion

Hey there everyone. I've been told by someone that I should start a pug kind of thing for 4s since TF2center hosts one every once in a blue moon, so I'm here to link an invite to the discord.

https://discord.gg/tvJ7TzKauh

Also, we're having a pug tonight at 8:30 EST. Come join if you'd like, because we need more players right now.

Why 4v4? Well, in all honesty, it's underrated. The gamemode is actually fun, providing a competitive DM type gamemode in a small map, where only your own skill matters. Ultiduo is just not my type, 6s is alright, but I've fallen in love with the 4s type of play. Not only that, but it's a great way to practice team communication and your own aim and movement skills.

"Isn't there already a 4s pug service available?" No. I've searched and searched, and TF2Center was the only option. Unfortunately I don't have enough lobbies to make a 4s match, and when I do find one, nobody ever joins and we all end up leaving.

Don't know how to play 4s? I've listed some guides and more helpful resources in the discord you can check out to familiarize yourself.

How do I organize pugs? I use random team captains to organize their teams.

For now, I will only host NA servers. If we get more pug and server managers, I will be more than happy to branch out into EU as well as such a fun gamemode shouldn't be region restricted.

UGC is the only league that currently supports the gamemode, and to be honest, it may die out soon. This is why I want to bring more light to the dark, and truly show you all how fun this mode is.

When we pug in the hopefully close future, we will run the common koth/cp maps. Offclassing is decided by your own team, there are no restrictions to what you can offclass (except the obvious no heavy-medic combo)

If you'd like to join, all skill levels are welcome. All you need to succeed is a good attitude, and an open mind.
