#26 5v5 AR in TF2 General Discussion

the thing with your argument Arx is that those games have public modes which were specifically designed by the game developers to be competitive and they were the ones that set the standard in terms of competition format

TF2 never got anything like that, so the current 6v6 game we have is basically the result of players of the game experimenting for years with different restrictions/maps/game modes until the one that was the most competitive and enjoyable was reached

if valve had come out shortly after TF2's release with this arena respawn format I think 6v6 as we know it probably wouldn't exist

i think this format sans the class bans (which I think are pretty arbitrary and would just mean that some classes never see any play time) is probably the best case scenario for any matchmaking system (if they do end up releasing one) as i cant envisage 6v6 ever getting valve support, ever

#156 Reflex: Arena shooter in development in Other Games
downpouri like a lot about the game, but its really unfun to play without lag compensation
might wait till that gets implemented before really playing it

agreed

playing on 80ms my railgun and lg are projectiles... not really fun at all currently :(

#134 Player skill rating added to the game in TF2 General Discussion

even if its a highlander-style format i hope they have the foresight to realise that requiring 18 players for a matchmaking game to start is going to mean incredibly painful wait times (especially if you pick a class before you queue)

#4 Getting better in TF2 General Discussion

it definitely sounds like your computer is the issue, if you want to improve your decisions in-game you're gonna have to drop at least $3000 on a new setup

#5 Removing/replacing mouse feet in Hardware

thanks for the suggestions guys

ThoxoHow do you not have access to isopropynol? Are disinfectants banned down there or something?

#1 Removing/replacing mouse feet in Hardware

hey guys

i've just bought some replacement skates for my abyssus because the stock ones keep peeling off, what would people recommend as the best way to remove mouse feet without rubbing alcohol? most of my googling points to this as the best solution but I don't have access to it... is just scraping them off with something like a knife or scissors a good or terrible idea?

thanks

#64 How do YOU practice? in TF2 General Discussion
tri_edit: shrugger brought up a really cool way to practice, if it existed. What if you could load up a pov demo and "take over" from a certain tick, so you just play a certain fight out over and over and see if you can hit all your shots or how you can play it differently. I think that'd be really cool but idk if it's possible with the source engine

technical limitations aside, this is pretty much impossible given that if you play a fight differently then your opponents are going to react to your play and themselves play differently, not really something you can replicate even with AI (in terms of high level play anyway). it's kind of a neat idea but ultimately would be impossible to replicate as something that would be a useful/realistic tool

by watching pov demos you can already determine better ways on how to play out a fight/situation anyway... imo you should always just focus on the best way to play each fight/situation rather than worry about hitting all your shots

#605 i52 in TF2 General Discussion

#603 i52 in TF2 General Discussion

how to have the worst possible end to an i52 trip:

-arrive in sydney, go to airport to fly back to perth (other side of australia, where I live)
-get told the flight has been delayed by 2 hours at checkin
-flight gets delayed another hour on top of that, after which it gets cancelled (fortunately was able to stay at termo's place)
-arrive at airport next morning
-new flight gets cancelled, moved to a later one in the day which connects through a different city (melbourne) and not a direct flight (+2 hours travel time)
-arrive in melbourne, flight back to perth gets delayed another 2 hours
-finally get back to perth, get told my luggage (with my screen and all my pc shit) was left at sydney and will arrive tonight
-luggage finally gets couriered out to me at 11:30pm and my 120hz monitor is completely broken and won't turn on

hahahahahahhahaha kill me
