#50 TF2 Confirmed dead by Richard Lewis in TF2 General Discussion
mustardoverlordrichard lewis is way more well known than any tf2 player who has ever played

oplaid works for him at the daily dot

get over urselves

Get over yourself, you're an idiot.

I was the first full time esports writer hired by the Daily Dot. I've worked there for months before Richard joined the team. He works alongside me. He's certainly not my boss and he certainly doesn't pay the paychecks.

I wrote that article because believe it or not, I'm interested in competitive TF2. What a surprise!

#639 MAJOR TF2 update for 6/18/14 (6/19/14, Love & War) in TF2 General Discussion
MarxistIf anything I would be in favor of a promod being used for LAN simply for continuity's sake - it's kinda silly to have an entire season played with 1 set of conditions and then an entirely new set being thrown for a championship.

Any major esport wouldn't have to worry about its pinnacle LAN being altered by an update :(.

Except this happens every couple weeks in League of Legends, the biggest esport in the world.

All the pros there adjust to changes all the time. Their favorite champions being nerfed into the ground, item changes completely switching up builds or changing how they have to play the game. And they adapt. Instead of just whining for days.

#35 PC Build Thread in Hardware

I just got a 4770k for $200 from MicroCenter, lol.

PU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($200)
Motherboard: GA Z87-UD4H ($130)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($90)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($170)
Video Card: Gigabyte GV-R797TO-3GD AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3072MB ($305)

Just going to use my Antec 1200 and the Corsair TX power supply I still have lying around, as well as storage drives.

I got a ridiculous deal on the CPU; they still have that price listed online so if you are near one you could grab it and probably sell it on Ebay for more. Or keep it for yourself.

The fuss is that it's gauranteed to have 2 perfect IVs when you catch one in the friend safari so you can grab a bunch for breeding stock much easier than in the wild.

Powder69masterchief1948added all please add 1736 1255 5071 is mine im steel not to sure what they are though.Have you completed the game? All ive found are forretress and magneton

They need to actually log into the internet with PSS while they are playing the game and you are playing the game...

About half the people I've added in this thread have never done that, so their icons in Friend Safari are still question marks and I can't every access their 3rd Pokemon or their Hidden Abilities... making it kind of worthless.

Link_oPlaiDAlso I'd appreciate it if someone would let me know what I have, too.
gloom and garbodor, dunno about the third one

Apparently its Whirlipede, so if you want your Speed Boost Scolipede I'm your man.

Actually, I'd appreciate if someone caught me a male one sometime since I'd like to breed one.

#95 Pokemon Friend Safari - Friend Codes in Other Games
nahkakakkoneThis needs to be said more than once: Please connect online into the PSS (Players Search System) with your 3DS while playing pokemon.

It's required to see your friends online in order to unlock the 3rd pokemon in the Safari.

Someone already said this in the thread but I can't be bothered to look for it.

E: Can someone tell me which pokemon are in my safari?
5343-8148-2024 ingame name riddik.

But your Nintendo friend name is Patse I assume?

You have Ghost with Lampent, Phantump, and Spiritomb... better off than most of the people here, lol.

Also applesauz has both Charmeleon and Braixen, so that's kind of cool I guess.

Also I'd appreciate it if someone would let me know what I have, too.

Cyanidebreloomanyone here have dittos?just GTS for it, I know most of the people there are stupid trying to trade a ditto for Xernas or something but just keep refreshing it and some Japanese dude will be trading a ditto for a ditto

I have two Japanese dittos, a Spanish Ditto, and a German Ditto from like 3 boxes full of Wonder Trades. Maybe I'm lucky, but it doesn't seem like the odds are that bad at getting one if you don't care about the IVs. Though one of them is a Friend Safari Ditto, so it at least has 2 perfects.

Could also be the hour of day I'm wonder trading though too.

I'm adding people...

Don't know what my friend safari has, but I'm sure its AWESOME.

Though TBH I'm not sure all this rigmarole is worth it; when the Pokemon Bank comes out all the hacked perfect IV Pokemon from BW will be back in the system, plus all the stuff we're missing to fill out Pokedex's.

This system would be a lot more meaningful if the Pokemon Bank only inlcuded this gen and future Pokemon... and they actually had some good security implemented.

ShwanPowerofTowerAll this talk of LoL and DOTA, anyone here play Smite?
I would recommend against playing hi-rez games.

Smite is the most fun of the MOBA games for me since you actually have responsive character control, you hit a button and the character goes. It feels way better than the awful sitting around waiting to turn in DotA and LoL while struggling to move the camera to the right spot etc.

The problem is Hi-Rez is awful at balancing their games and designing game systems. They've managed to make fun base gameplay in all of their titles really, but they then mess it up with everything they put on top of that. It's pretty sad.

And I've got TPA Ez, but he's my most played champion so you aren't getting him e

#135 New kind of 6v6? in TF2 General Discussion

Valve wants to dip their toes in the competitive market for the same reason that DotA 2 and League of Legends are so successful as competitive games.

Competitive players are more invested in their game, play the game more, and are more likely to spend money on the game. Casual players who don't enjoy playing competitively but enjoy watching it, fans of the competitive game, are also more invested in the product as a whole, and are less likely to stop playing and more likely to invest in items for it.

If they implement a lobby system that players enjoy, they'll be more invested in the game and more likely to spend money on it if they feel a drive to do well in that system as opposed to just messing around in a pub for an hour here or there.

I'm not sure any of this will have a real big effect considering the TF2 playerbase has already dropped quite a bit

TF2 is honestly set up perfectly to be an FPS esport but it's just gone so long without developer support for competition that the game has grown stale in general since everyone has played it so much. With Valve moving all their development assets to other products the process will just continue, most likely, which is a shame...

There are not any other FPS where you have intuitive concepts like roles (similar to positions on a football team), a visual style that doesn't look cheap or ugly but is easy to understand (over hyperealistic FPS games where you need to be able to discern a couple of pixels to see a guy in a bush), combined use of hitscan and projectile weapons (which is great for spectators since things like airshots are awesome). It's even got a number of easily identifiable objectives (CP points, uber) that allow commentators to break down action into something more understandable for viewers.

Valve spent too much time making the public game different than the competitive game to really salvage that, which annoys me greatly because five years later they seem to have realized the potential of esports when they were developing DotA 2. If they wanted to test some of their stuff, like tournament tickets, they could have done that in TF2 if they had ever stopped to consider since they use TF2 as their testbed anyway. Oh well.

It's true that making the competitive game more similar to pubs will be a net positive. At this point it's probably too late but considering how highlander is growing faster than 6s, maybe there's at least a little hope.

#84 invite rumors round 2 in TF2 General Discussion
TerywjI'm most curious to where these guys will end up: TheFragile, MesR, KBK, YZ50, Tony_Swan, oPlaiD.

kbk will probably med for Don't Trip or something. Rest of those guys probably won't play this season, unless Mesr joins mix to medic, but doesn't seem like that's happening.
