#29 class with hardest transition from pub to 6s in TF2 General Discussion
DrPloxopweeSo the easiest would be scout?
Why wouldn't be roamer
Roamer requires timing and knowing what to kill.

Becoming a mediocre roamer is pretty easy, which is why lower divs are flooded with mediocre roamers. Learn to bomb medics and BOOM you're a mediocre roamer.

Becoming a good roamer is tough, which is why there are relatively few great roamers. My last season in 6s was sort of a wake up call, since I finally started to understand that the roamer is the "wetworker" of the team, doing all of the ugly stuff that isn't noticeable to the casual eye. Is it time to be the "big brother" on the flank? Is it time to be the vanguard on a push? Is it time to be the clean-up on a push? Is it time to hide, or time to bomb?

The realization basically paralyzed me for a few weeks because I couldn't think and act fast enough to do all of those jobs at the same time, so I was basically doing none of them. By the end of the season I was starting to be able to do some of those jobs more effectively, but by then the team imploded and my personal life went bonkers.

It's similar to the transition for medics. The line of progression I've seen from a bunch of medics is that they go from "bad" to "decent" disproportionately fast, but the transition from "decent" to "good" takes a really long time. I think it would come down to getting the mechanics down, which lifts you into "decent" range, but from that point it becomes more about intangible qualities.

As a low-open shitter, this is one of the few topics I feel I can give insight on.

#5 class with hardest transition from pub to 6s in TF2 General Discussion

Redi, that's an answer to a question that no one asked.

I'm far from an expert, but I'd say demoman would be the hardest transition from my perspective. I can wreck pubs as demo (not much of an achievement), but I'd likely be an embarrassment as a 6s demo on any map where speed is a concern.

Competitive demo opens up it's own little universe of development, and it's a class where previous FPS experience doesn't massively factor in (except for quake players and pipe aim, but even that is a bit of a stretch).

Yeah, that 2 20-minute halves idea is pretty golden. You still get your halftime, and everyone loves a buzzer beater

#62 14 minute short uploaded! in TF2 General Discussion
boulderhype and potential content aside, was anyone else as disappointed as I was with the plot from this short?

I agree with everything you said, but I disagree that it was disappointing. To me it felt like Loony Tunes or something of the sort. If they serialize this then it will be a funny series that I will look forward to, but if they treat this as a one-off sort of thing, then I will share your disappointment.

So I guess I'm sort of agreeing with Osiris, but not with the way he made his point.

Best thread on TFTV in recent memory, really enjoying seeing the different perspectives. Besides dingo's post, that is.

#22 Pub-Stomp Groups? in TF2 General Discussion

If you're a competitive player playing soldier in pubs, the only acceptable thing to do is try to land on snipers' heads, while looking for teleporters to tauntkill with your Escape Plan. Otherwise, go play dm or something, man

Choco is a cool guy and a solid soldier. He's worth a tryout.

#62 YouTube removing TF2 accounts. in TF2 General Discussion

Yeah, my terrible, terrible videos are all still up. I only had like 10, but they're all still there. MasterKuni, I'd advise against doing what you're planning until youtube releases an announcement on the subject. I'm still thinking this is a bug, but with a system as big as theirs, fixes are going to be slow and painful.

#45 YouTube removing TF2 accounts. in TF2 General Discussion

I was permanent suspended, then I waited about 10 minutes, refreshed after I realized I still had the page open, and saw that my account was back to normal. Looks like someone just broke something and took a bit to fix it.

#19 Recent phishing outbreak in TF2 General Discussion

It's nuked. Wasn't expecting to see something like that on steam, especially from another comp player. Live and learn, I guess. I need to get my steam frame of mind to match my email state of mind, for some reason I was trusting steam more than other things.

#17 Recent phishing outbreak in TF2 General Discussion

Son of a bitch. One of the guys I helped find his first team last year got hacked by this and sent that link, had no idea. He has sent me pictures in the past of map overviews and stuff, so I didn't give it a second thought. Going to scour my computer now. Son of a bitch.
