#21 How do I get better? in TF2 General Discussion
SnackI appreciate the feedback from all of you. One question I have is what is the mindset I need to be in in order to try to get better? Every time I go into a game saying "I'm gonna try my best", I end up not really going anywhere.

The mindset you should have if you want to improve is "I'm gonna stop fucking up in that one way I always do". e.g. popping uber too early on badlands last. it can be something seemingly insignificant, but the aim is to cross items out on the list of things that you are doing wrong, one by one. When you stop making mistakes you can do things better. i don't know if any of this makes sense, i'm just trying to explain my mindset when i was really trying to improve aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Key thing, practise != playing

#11 How do I get better? in TF2 General Discussion

Not gonna lie i've never reviewed my own demo and i know a lot of good players who have never watched their own demos either, i've watched other players demos to see how they deal with certain situations but that's it. I recommend doing this if you know that you're making a mistake consistently but you aren't sure with how to deal with that.

Focus on one thing at a time, fix that mistake and move onto the next one. Change doesn't happen overnight. The truth that a lot of people don't want to admit is that tf2 is VERY mechancially dependent, so work on them. All the gamesense in the world won't save you if you just miss all of your shots or munch two directs because your movement is dogshit.

Android_If you're having trouble applying what you learn to matches, try to come up with simple heuristics. eg "I should play passively if X, Y or Z. I should play further forward if these other conditions." "I should use uber to save my pocket if condition A, B, and C, but not D. Otherwise I should let him die."

I really don't like this way of thinking, there isn't a prem decision making flowchart that if you follow will instantly make you a good player. A lot of this game is based on gut feeling (outside of wider team decisions i.e. where/when/how we will execute)

#11 I sent this to valve in TF2 General Discussion

if valve were to host a tournament it wouldn't be the tf2 that you want to see. them adopting our abstraction of the game, i.e. class limits, whitelist etc., would be them basically admitting that their game is broken.

#43 Growing the tf2 community in TF2 General Discussion

I don't know why people keep throwing around this idea of having a valve sponsored major for tf2. If there was a tournament next month sponsored by Valve with say 100k prize pool it would be fucking awful. Skill level in tf2 is probably at its biggest low point and if we're being honest and viewing tf2 as a game, compared to cs/ow/dota etc. and not through our own biased perspective, is a complete fucking mess. A decent portion of weapons aren't allowed and most of the ones that are just aren't used because they're completely useless. Do you really think if Valve sponsored a major they would ban half of their own weapons from being used and impose class limits?

People here still seem to think of tf2 as our own corrupted version (whitelists, class limits etc.) of it when in reality that's not the case for 90% of people. On top of that TF2 mm is still in it's infancy and tbh doesn't seem to work very well, so imagine we have Joe Bloggs your average twitch user who sees this supposed 100k tournament and decided to jump into matchmaking and gets fucked by the crit a cola while having 20fps after waiting 20 minutes to find a game.

tldr fix the game then worry about tournaments/player base.

#18 Dreamhack Summer Feedback Thread in LAN Discussion
MidnightMickMe & Drackks Mum thought there was to much from a snipers perspective.

That's just down to top teams lack of creativity, can't fault production on that.
