#99 ban the looser cannon in TF2 General Discussion
eeescout is only OP in one gamemode that almost no one plays and only when the players are close to the top of the skill ceiling

everywhere else he's borderline useless :L

we're talking about banning the loose cannon in 6v6, shifting the discussion to other formats is counter-productive.

also none of your other points make any sense, we have thousands of people playing 6v6, and scout is used effectively in pretty much every competitive format as well as pubs. and open/steel level 6s players still see scouts top frag as often as any other class.

to summarize: wtf are you talking about

#229 Donald Trump in World Events
sacIs this some bizarro world, or the first stage of idiocracy? It's naturally a tenfold better that in any argument both sides explain why they agree or disagree on this or that, and try to use facts, rather than an one liner or paragraph random ad hominems or random nonsense in which the message is : I don't agree with you, you are x.

since you compared him to a flat earth conspiracist on some point you might say where, so you would actually point out where you think something is flawed, rather than a subtle insult to denigrate your opponent.
AvastAlso I'm not comparing whoever this slayer guy is to them(though sometimes i personally find the comparison accurate), just saying that argument does not make sense and the point of frags is to show agreement or disagreement.

Sac did you read the post you quoted? You're calling Avast out for something he specifically said he isn't doing.

#29 ban the looser cannon in TF2 General Discussion
Charles32Tevswhat about reducing ammo from 4 to 3 as a nerf?
Or reduce pushback force

we can't change the game, only the way we play it.

a weapon ban in competitive is like saying "the top 1% of players think this weapon makes the game less fun", and that's about the strongest message we can give Valve tbh.

#14 I need help with scout v soldier in Q/A Help
capnfapn6. play soldier against good scouts and see what they do.

Just wanted to emphasize this right here. Be the guy that pisses you off when you're in their shoes. (that sentence is a bit confusing i know)

I don't believe he is even remotely electable. No moderates will vote for him, and the democrats will vote for their candidate.

#25 Katie/Maqe/Uberace is really creepy. in TF2 General Discussion

Man this is weird drama, but with a cheating accusation involved I wanted to try to get the facts straightened out.

I think I spoke with you directly about this, Pigface. I have it on record that UberAce was cheating in a scrim as late as June 2015, which is when we spoke. So this is way more recent than 2013-2014. I believe that account is now banned because it has a VAC ban on it. That's not even considering the third account, also VAC'd.

Katie's recent play involves a lot of dead-on tracking, and a lot of terrible decisions. I would be avoid playing with him or her, but i fully expect to see another alt show up.

dollarlayersmoboGetting this power supply. If someone finds a better deal for 600W+ with good peformance, please post it here.

XFX TS Series P1-650G-TS3X 650W - $74.99, $39.99 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207034

Probably more than what you need but newegg has an EVGA Super Nova 80+ Platinium (the highest efficiency) modular power supply for $80 shipped after rebate. It has a 10 year warranty and is one of the highest rated power supplies out there. http://slickdeals.net/f/8313787-evga-79-99ar-supernova-850w-80-platinum-certified-10-years-warranty-fully-modular-power-supply

My PC actually failed to boot Wednesday so I ordered something off Amazon already(much cheaper rush shipping than Newegg). That PSU is pretty overkill but it looks like an awesome deal for any major enthusiasts out there.

600w, modular, 80+ bronze, $65, $45 after rebate
modular psus are a great investment if you dont like the inside of your computer to look like unspooled multicolor spaghetti

Both look like great units. Gold 650W vs Bronze 600W + modular is a tough choice. Thanks a lot!

#36 How much of a disadvantage is 60hz vs 120hz? in TF2 General Discussion

Being stuck at 60 is like playing on a non-mechanical keyboard for me. I don't like it nearly as much, but it doesn't really make an impact on how well I play.

Definitely looks nice though.

#63 UGC Sandbagging at its finest. in The Dumpster
I also think a lot of people are skimming over the fact that the main reason these guys are even in silver in the first place is because they have connections with a questionable UGC admin.

Ouch... Not sure anything I can say will be helpful when you've already decided I'm an asshole, so I'll just give it a rest.

#51 UGC Sandbagging at its finest. in The Dumpster

I was the admin in charge of 6v6 placements this season. Just wanted to explain how I saw the situation since I'm being accused of wrongdoing here.

I told Codexa what the guidelines I had been placing with were, and we worked out which players had to be removed to fit the criteria I placed every other team by. It should be obvious that years-old HL experience doesn't carry as much weight as recent 6s experience.

My connection to them helped me understand exactly how good they are (having played with half of them), and it helped them understand what they needed to do to qualify for Silver. Not favoritism, just doing my job.

Sorry this match didn't go your way Gasol. Sandbagging is an issue that requires compromise, and you can't make everyone happy.

#89 Hassassin_ cheat evidence. in TF2 General Discussion

Not trying to argue anything, but this is a complicated issue that I haven't made up my mind about.

It seems inconsistent with the VAC ban policy UGC and ETF2L have to let proven pub cheating go unpunished. It's easy to forgive someone for hacking in a pub months ago, and certainly it doesn't make them ineligible to compete. I just don't think it's fair if someone gets off completely free with admitted cheating. Simply put, cheating in a multiplayer environment is wrong and should be punished in some way.

UGC's rule:

9.5.2 Source Engine VAC Bans - A player with a Source Engine VAC ban (that prevents the player from joining a TF2 VAC secured server) will be banned from the league for a period of 6 months from the date the account is VAC banned. In all cases, the ban period applies to a person and not a single Steam account. Alias accounts created to evade this VAC policy will lengthen the duration of the player ban.

ETF2L has a similar but harsher rule

6.5 VAC Bans

As of March 15, 2012, any player with a VAC ban on the Source engine will be banned for 1 year. Players with VAC bans that do not apply to Team Fortress 2 will not be affected. Players receiving VAC bans before March 15, 2012 will not be affected.

Any proven cheater should be treated as if they're the not-so-proud owner of a VAC ban, otherwise we're saying "go ahead as long as your cheat is undetected". And we all know how common undetected TF2 cheats are. The purpose of the rules is to show that the competitive community of UGC and ETF2L does not tolerate people who cheat in TF2, period. I think it's important for all organizations to be willing to put their foot down against cheaters, since Valve has not been effective at this. UGC is trying to do its part to keep TF2 clean, not just the league itself.

These rules have been in place during the alleged offense, and Hassassin appears to be in violation of the intent of these rules, even without an actual VAC ban. At the same time, there seems to be plenty of reason to believe his competitive career is squeaky clean. Not sure what the appropriate action here is, but doing nothing doesn't sit right with me. Input is appreciated.

He's clearly playing dumb in that ban appeal, but why would you go public with this before you have anything solid? You're just asking for trouble.
