#37 What Would You like to See On: Pyro in TF2 General Discussion

I came in a little late to the discussion on powerjack v. escape plan, so sorry if this has been said somehow.

In TF2, almost every way you can move faster hurts you or makes you take fewer hits to die. Escape plan has the double whammy of minicrits and low hp, GRU has minicrits (definitely a nerf from when they used to do damage), explosive jumping does damage, the fast classes have lower hp... etc.

Powerjack doesn't have this downside.

On the flipside, I don't think "buff the escape plan" is any sort of solution. There's a reason the escape plan was nerfed 3x in a row yet still remains insanely popular. It doesn't need a buff.

Nerf the powerjack is more reasonable. I like the weapon, but I don't see the downside of, say, having pyro take minicrits while using it. Powerjack's a really really solid upgrade, primarily rivaled by the axetinguisher in terms of how often it's used.

That said, I love the powerjack.

---

On a different note, if we're talking pub play, I think QuickFix users should take knockback from airblast during the uber. Pyros with the axetinguisher are one of the easiest ways to kill a popped QF med (sans stickytrap), but knockback would be nice and balance QF a bit more. Also, if they haven't fixed it already, QF meds should be able to detonator jump with their pyros.

#50 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion
kevstrongsuit
You are asking newer players to take one on the chin and like it, though. Open isn't a good deal and it doesn't offer anything except the chance to finance a league that's only particularly beneficial/worthwhile for the higher div players.

i see this posted in a lot of threads and i don't get the logic
why even play a competitive game if you think like this? your money is gonna go to the best players in any league you compete in

I don't have an issue with my money going to the best players in the league I play in - I say that that's all that playing ESEA-O has to offer without sarcasm. I just see playing CEVO-O as a better deal.

#49 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion
blinKStrongsuit i'm not trying to disrespect newer players in any way. Maybe you do understand but some people invested a lot of time and money to compete in this league and move up the ranks. That could be you one day down the road if this situation ever arises again. Put yourself in someone elses shoes. If you're playing competitively you should have some kind of goals in mind. Since ESEA is the highest competition i'd think your goal would be to make it to the top and win. If you were a baseball player would you want to win the minor league trophy or the major league trophy? There's always going to be differences because people value different things. I'm not trying to take shots at anyone in particular just speaking very bluntly and honestly. In whatever it is you decide to do though, all I am saying is think about the big picture and the consequences that could result from your decisions. That's all. Nobody is a bad guy here I just really don't want to see a community fallout over something that is totally avoidable and not even needed.

You're right about this. My biggest worry is actually that CEVO will fold after this season - I don't want to waste another season with my team - I want what we do this season to count.

However, I'm placing my bet. By the time I'm eligible to win any sort of trophy, this whole league dispute will have settled. If CEVO "wins", I win my bet. At that point, winning CEVO won't be winning a minor league trophy, it will be winning the major league trophy.

In the meantime, gambling on CEVO costs us what... at most another season in open, if we have to switch back to ESEA after we've surpassed the typical open skill window.

#39 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion

BlinK, you keep saying "the newer players don't understand".

The thing is, the 6s scene gets most of it's recruitment from people who watch 6s. We do understand. We might not have multiple seasons of ESEA under our belt, but some/many of us have been watching the scene for multiple seasons at least. I don't think you're telling anyone anything they don't know.

You are asking newer players to take one on the chin and like it, though. Open isn't a good deal and it doesn't offer anything except the chance to finance a league that's only particularly beneficial/worthwhile for the higher div players. Saying "you don't understand" is condescending. We just see things differently than you do - personally, I don't want to get fucked and dismissed by a league that I've never seen as anything less than corrupt and a pyramid scheme. You are more or less literally asking me to donate my time and money to a league that I've seen almost nothing but complaints about from it's players.

I'd say "sure, we'll play both leagues", but ESEA has 2 match nights a week, CEVO has 2, UGC 6s has 1, UGC HL has 1... playing both leagues would mean 5/6 match nights a week for most of my team, and it's highly unlikely that we'd improve at that rate.

#23 ESEA's possible demise? in TF2 General Discussion

There is almost no reason for a new team to play in ESEA as opposed to CEVO.

ESEA has a higher price tag and about the same payout/same chance of a payout, ignoring the issues with the client (which HAVEN'T gone away ... there might not be malware anymore but open playoffs were fucked because of the client, RIP HiveMind). The reason I'd play ESEA instead of CEVO is because of the level of competition, but the level of competition that I care most about is that we get in scrims, which really aren't contingent on league. I guess a secondary reason is because of the repute gained by playing in ESEA, but really.... most open players go unknown. I won't lose any rep playing in CEVO instead.

I'm aware that the ESEA admins have done some legwork regarding retention in their league, and I respect that. They seem to have reached out to the top teams in pretty much every division to ensure that most of those teams will still play ESEA next season. However, what you're describing is a problem in recruitment... which they haven't fixed. Open is bare because there is no longer any good reason to sign up for ESEA-O, and the admins HAVEN'T been reaching out to baby teams (which is fair... that's difficult and probably not worthwhile) to try to rectify that.

Personally, my team and I are going CEVO and I haven't seen anything that will change my mind.
