#36 Reptile’s team in 2007 vs open team in TF2 General Discussion

Reptile's team would probably lose. There's an undeniable measure of competence and gamesense on Reptile's team that would be useful to reverse the momentum on some modern overtuned DM crackheads looking for flashy picks; but I don't think it would suffice in the long-run against the many years of rollout practice, jump maps, DM and MGE that the open players would be seasoned with. Given they haven't just started playing this season and have achieved generic mechanical mastery. If the open players are still learning the game too, it'd make it a lot more even.

Give the best old-heads a chance to scrim for a month in the current landscape to see what's changed and I think it would turn out to be a great match.

#82 May I ask talk about the current pandemic? in World Events

I agree it's hideous a lot bothers me about it all and I might be a little hangry rn; we might all be terminally online soon tho if that shit keeps mutating so we should get vax'd and avoid each other at all costs and get used to remote functionalities

#79 May I ask talk about the current pandemic? in World Events

I don't bide by the control rhetoric being brought up by covid; govt already control us in way more subtle ways not needing to be delivered intravenously. They're the Amazon of information channels worldwide. They don't need a jab to get you to do anything. Yea there may be a hand tightening it's grip on a mechanic in our life that'll be a law school essay question in the distant future; but right now everyone on every side is to blame in some way shape or form as to why it's still a problem today and not just an extra cozy winter in 2019 leading into 2020.

We went into lockdown because the idea from sensible people that was to just wash your hands some more; that's always been enough, wasn't enough by March and the shadow it was casting was pretty gloomy. Hence the rush right into lockdowns, and given the public issue dominating the time was police brutality; the guise of the uniform coming in to tell you to stay home at the time of historical verdicts wasn't really going to fly. There's a lot of saucy combinations of good and bad why the government would want to recommend you to stay home, while simultaneously fauceting a rhetoric you're going to be gunned down by a deplorable, Godless, America-hating rioter all while needing to construe a plan to defend against a virus so you can keep paying your taxes next year. There were lots of already politically charged reasons why some couldn't stay in lockdown, so naturally the virus developed and along with it and so did the conspiracies surrounding the motivation behind committing to being the the team against it.

Where we're at now is everyone has to sound like an asshole to get a point across due to the anti-humor that's been surgically embedded in our communication patterns. Trolls are winning, hardcore. Algorithmic feedback loops of anti-humor facilitated on social media have overall dominated modern language, effectively pushing the idea of common sense out the door. What used to serve as inside jokes for the introverted to find other like-minded introverts and sometimes little life pro-tips; now serves as a function of communicating broader ideas in short-spurts by hijacking the understanding of what is being delivered from the meme. Instead of typical educational fashion, now simply pointing at two to three concepts and slamming them together is good enough for most to feel comfortably informed. I've always done my group projects, I know first hand the majority is helpless from suffering from learned helplessness so most think why bother doing anything. And memes are pretty damned funny, it's no mystery as to why we're in this state of affairs. Some people just suck, and some people never learned any better. The former being sheltered by the latter.

#24 What do you like and dislike about this community? in TF2 General Discussion

Like: How we've never become an esport backed by Valve, but more like an intramural hobby. Rooted on a unanimous agreement that this game deserves to sit at the roundtable of esport titles. It's a diverse, unique community where no two people are alike in this scene that fights tooth and nail nearly every day to make it felt and known this game deserved it all too even though the game was orphaned by Valve a long, long time ago.

Dislike: How the niche and welcoming aspect of our community has made for attractive grounds for morally bankrupt sociopathic degenerates to abuse trust and exercise malicious intent that's predatory in nature in pursuit of personal satisfaction and we seemingly can't do jack shit about it if it were to ever become endemic again.

#12 Steam has been down for almost 2 hours in TF2 General Discussion

Do this:

visit: https://steamcommunity.com/market/
Right click: inspect
Select Network at the top

and just navigate the market, watch the right go fuckin crazy

That's why maintenance is needed because sometimes that shit on the right pings red as fuck as usually nobody knows why until they turn it off and do a little testing on it to fix it and see if they can deliver a client update to fix it; or a server update to fix it. And if there's a server update required, they don't need to haphazardly bother the whole world by randomly shutting down. So, it's a protocol to see if anything major is happening and they can analyze and patch what's wrong.

There's multiple layers of separation of concerns; EVE is just a database contained within one portal that allows input. Steam database and the way data is stored with Steam, is 50x bigger and more sensitive than a video game. There's way less to a video game to have to store or to have figure out what's going wrong versus a live market and social media platform.

Source: I maintained API tools for an IoT department in a fortune 500 company. Most minor things can be hotfixed without taking anything down, but logic is usually so tight that the server code needs to be adjusted and reinjected for anything above having to change the accuracy of some words.

#20 whats the best scout crosshair and why (help me) in Customization

IIRC the circle crosshair at size 14 or 15 on 1080p was perfect for me to know where the tightest spread of bullets would hit on a medium distanced target to make up for the fixed spread that would bloom up to a distance and miss a portion of the target. I just wanted consistency of pellets at a distance, meatshots don't really need to be visually compensated for. Hit the middle, hit the whole spread. Different story at a distance on a fixed spread. If the target couldn't fill up most the circle, wouldn't have been worth to click.

As for color, open up a color picker and randomize the selection and feel out which color stands out the most to you. Not your favorite color, but one that your eye just can't avoid noticing.

#13 Valve is getting in contact with Mod Devs in TF2 General Discussion

I've played with the maintainers of OF before and got to know them a little bit, they just wanna see more people experience an uncorrupted blend of fortress classic and fortress 2. They're also really talented and exactly who Valve strive for to entrust their production to.

I don't doubt this is gonna yield a really good thing in the future
