#21 Is comp tf2 w/ no whitelist plausible? in TF2 General Discussion
Nursay I know I also have bias as I pub frequently still and have been playing highlander for a really long time. I would much rather hear "it's not fun" than someone pulling some stupid theory out of their ass on why a weapon is broken.

ironically(?) I would say for certain things (flamethrowers and detonator/scorch in particular, but there are prob others) it's the hl players/pubbers who complain about them way more for being unfun or braindead. by contrast I don't think I've ever seen pubbers complain about mad milk when that shit is straight busted.

of course it makes sense that those groups complain about them more because you're way more likely to see full time pyro in pubs/hl than in 6's but my point is more that there are some things in this game that a lot of people, no matter how you experience this game, hate solely for being "unfun" or easy/lowskill (think w+m1 complaints)

#116 so uhh.. in TF2 General Discussion
ward3d What other game has restrictions like class limits and weapon whitelists today?

Smash? Hell it has even more restrictions considering literally all items are off lol. Imagine if people in the smash community suggested that they turn items on because it's more familiar to the casual player/outsiders who only see smash as a party game. Turns out that allowing uncompetitive things when you're trying to make a competitive game solely for the reason that "it's part of the base game" is a fucking terrible idea. Not to mention that cs was about to ban the r8 revolver before it got fixed. I really think you're overestimating how complicated the idea of "it's banned because it's broken or uncompetitive" is.

NurseyI'm completely willing to deal with the very minor negatives of unlocks that will barely scratch the meta of our game if it even means it'll help out even the tiniest of bit. It feels like I'm trying to stay optimistic while most of those around on this site are trying to take any enthusiasm away.

People like b4nny always spout this shit about players needing to sacrifice their own enjoyment of the game "for the greater good" but literally what benefits are there at all to unbanning uncompetitive unlocks? You already admit that unbanning these unlocks only brings potential negatives to the game itself, and at best affects nothing. I remember during the initial global whitelist push (which btw NA has totally abandoned, what happened to people like SLIN saying that the communities should have 1 whitelist lmao) the proponents were saying that unbanning unlocks will also attract new players. Unfortunately, that has not been the case and the pattern in player numbers went basically unchanged pre and post global whitelist, so it'd be a little absurd to think that an extra few unlocks would make any sort of change. Where exactly are these supposed benefits, no matter how small?

NurseyI highly doubt there's anyone currently playing this game that thinks there's a miraculous event we can make occur to make us a relevant esport.

The reason people jokingly bring up "Valve major" is because appealing to Valve was a big reason for the mass unbans within the global whitelist, and considering it's been two years since then and the comp tf2 community has absurdly little to show for it, I personally am quite cynical toward that particular line of reasoning.

Kind of a side note, but believe me when I say I've spent a LOT of time talking to tf2 players who have never touched any competitive format, ranging from the average pubber to the casual comp stream viewer to people who vehemently antagonize anything even vaguely related to comp, and I've met maybe 2 people who actually avoided comp because of certain unlocks being banned. Once that unlock got unbanned (gunslinger for both), they still avoided comp because turns out full-time engineer still sucks. The reasons why people don't want to play comp are either because they can't play their main full time viably and/or they hate 5cp (oftentimes these two things are tied together) or they only enjoy the chaos of 12v12 class stacking pub tf2 on maps with infinite sightlines and awful chokes.

800 x 600 res

is there any benefit to using such a low res? Or is it just personal preference

can't speak for the original dude but for potato pc's/laptops it raises fps (probably does nothing if you have a desktop gpu from 2012+ lol)

#801 unpopular tf2 opinions in TF2 General Discussion
Evil_MrMuffinzsomeone above praised the use of arrows in an ultiduo context. personally, i believe that arrows have been an interesting addition to 6s games as well. scout speed is also cool. i'm glad our medic friends have gotten a few more dynamic mechanics, hopefully they feel more like they're playing the same game as the rest of us. i know when i play medic that i love running fast and shooting sick arrows

i don't think ppl really argue that arrows and going fast aren't fun/interesting/engaging/some other adjective, just that it's bad for 6's. personally my biggest gripe was arrows was that i could just rely on them and not learn heal order at all or anything more "medic-like", but i'm open so take that with a grain of salt

anyway unpopular opinion: i like the risk/reward dynamic you actually have to consider when pushing on payload (and koth to a certain smaller extent), the risk being failing the push, reward being better time overall. i find that in 5cp it's really not too punishing if you play overly safe, in fact always playing safe might be the right call because of how the timer/rounds work

overall though i think push/pull dynamic of 5cp overrides other game mode benefits, but man some stalemates can get pretty boring

#8 What should I watch on Netflix? in Music, Movies, TV
_brianMost of the marvel Netflix shows are really good. Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones are my favorites. Agents of Shield is really good too.

daredevil is great except for the fucking ninjas

#156 What do you HATE about TF2? in TF2 General Discussion
Likokoneairblast stun so you cant strafe whatsoever

i'll extend this to generally when the patch notes say one thing but the gameplay is completely different

https://i.imgur.com/5BVSuYz.png

I think the only true statement here is that the angle of airblast is factored in (maybe airblast being a cone, haven't tested), everything else is the opposite of what the patch notes says it should be. somehow made it even worse to play against.

edit: i guess reduced footing meaning turning the map into an ice rink is also true but seems a bit extreme considering how its worded
