    I know people have said this before, but I really hate Lucky Crits.
    I swear I was playing a game on Foundry and 3 times in a row I died because this Demo/Heavy got a lucky Crit on me.

    I also hate the servers where once the map time limit ends one team is randomly picked as the winner.
    On that same game, we just had to capture their final point to win the game and just as we were about to start capping it.

    Did you stick around to hear the story? It may have been the one I wrote.



    loosing: present participle of loose (Verb)
    Verb:

    Set free; release: "the hounds have been loosed".
    Untie; unfasten: "the ropes were loosed"
    I'll recreate it when I remember and have time for the spelling nazis.

    I hate when it seems like every time I play tf2, I start out by ending up on the horribly loosing team, I'm talking about not making half-way to the first point on badwater bad.
    And then bring the team to victory.

    70% of the time, no, but when I'm the losing team I'm usually on the top of the scoreboard, and doing a lot to help complete game objectives.

    I'm the king of the losers!

    I was doing a big crafting spree of all my spare weapons and when I was crafting the spare sydney sleepers I was half asleep and just crafted my Genuine Machina, and I highly doubt Steam support will do anything about it.

    I'm so sad right now ;_;

    Edited:

    Thanks Bazkip for the Genuine Machina.
    If Steam Support gives me mine back I promise to give you it back.

    In order:

    Demo: Shoot the stickies around the sentry or try and go for the Demo while he's distracted.
    Soldier/Sniper sniping at you/your stuff: Wrangler, but if he gets up close to you after destroying your sentry your only choice then is to try and shotgun him to death, but as I said, you're a weak class and will most likely loose to his rockets which is what is supposed to happen.

    Spy: Just be aware of your surroundings and watch your back as he'll most likely try and pull a stab n sap while you are repairing your buildings, if he starts sapping your stuff, go for him first because if you try to unsap your buildings while he's still there he'll try and backstab you while your fixing your stuff, or just repeatedly spam his sappers (which will always win unless a teamamte comes to save you which is highly unlikely at times unless your stuff is set up at a chokepoint)

    But these are really basic counter strategies,
    None of which, of course, take a modicum of effort. Even the Wrangler removes the chance of having to expend effort, what with its prodigious aim-assist and all. The only aspect of the Engineer that takes real exertion is shotgun aim, which is a skill shared by four other classes.

    So do you play 24/7 2fort and turtle engie in the intel? Because that is boring. Playing engineer on a normal map? Fun as shit. Playing combat engie? Don't get me started, boy. If you think all engineer's do is sit and hit their sentry, you need to play more.

    And even if you do sit beside your sentry, it can be ridiculously hard.

    I pulled off quite an amazing roundsaver once.
    I think it was on Badwater, last cap.

    BLU team was putting a lot of pressure on us, I think there were two minutes left or so. I tried playing Demoman but couldn't, and when I noticed we had no engies, I went one and built it down the ramp. 60 seconds of constant pressure on us, I had two ubers nearly destroy my sentry.
    We won the round though.

    let me stop you their, as a master Engineer (I've Main Engineer since I've played TF2)
    It's your and your teams fault that they dont know how to work together and defeat a sentry.
    A Engie nest can be taken out easily by a Heavy and a medic. If there is more sentries a scout can distract while soldiers and Demos spam rockets and grenades. So it's not that sentries are hard to take down its knowing how to take them down is an advantage.
    Haven't played for a few months or so, but a single Engy is somewhat simple to take care of if he's not defended. Having the enemy team around it or multiple Engies makes your strat moot. Especially with a Pyro or two blowing back projectiles and ubers. Sniper probably has the best chance at removing the Engy coupled with a Spy to follow-up sap, but there's the risk of a nearby Pyro running Homewrecker and resorting to whittling it down before mister mad texan returns.

    I hate when you're just goofing around having fun and somebody comes in taking things way too seriously and tries to make you stop.

    Yes, Mr. Soldier, with your pocket Kritz medic, you are doing quite well, thanks for pointing it out to me. No, me and my "idiot medic" friend don't have as many points as you, smacking enemy heavies with our ubersaws and shooting at spastic scouts with our blutsaugers. We are quite aware.

    We still beat him though. Chained ubers and basically killed their entire defense, securing the final point. He refused to acknowledge that maybe we weren't completely incompetent though, just his surprise that our "shit team" won, then said "man I'm so great" (really) before leaving the game.

    Kinda rained on our parade a little.

    Playing Engineer isn't just being a bot and whacking your sentry 24/7, you know. If you really play like this, you should throw in the goggles and get out.

    "I hate people who are better than me."
    Wait, I think I'm realizing this a bit late, but did you just pop into the thread all of a sudden, hate Sentries for being "cheap" and slur at someone who merely contributed to this thread and called Engineer an easymode boring class?

    Maybe it's your opinion, but you're kind of being a dick about it.

    Depends on how you play Engineer. You can set up Level 3 Sentries in hidden places, as if ambushing unsuspecting enemies. You can harass enemies with your shotgun and use yourself as bait to lure them to your sentry. Set up teleporters in uncommon places to lead your team to a surprise assault. Stuff like that. Playing regular Engineer can be fun too if you know how to do it.

    I don't see any fun in it to be honest.
    I mean, I play Jag Engi from time to time, to compensate my team's uselessness. But then, I sit there, hitting my Sentry with my wrench... get bored, run out to kill someone and die.
    Seconds later, Sentry is down.
    I'm far more effective with a Mini-Sentry and my Gunslinger.
    And as we are in the "stuff that annoys you" thread: The Gunslinger is bugged to hell and back.
    Do you know how often I did three consecutive hits with it but yet not getting a crit punch?
    The hit detection in TF2 is generally bullshit.
    Perfect example to prove that is the Boston Basher. Sometimes I hear the sound of the bat hitting someone, yet I'm the one bleeding. I also had it once that I completely missed, neither I was bleeding nor my opponent. But the worst thing was when both me AND my enemy were bleeding.

    That explains why you act like a dick to everyone quite well.


    Anyway, Engineer is a slower and weaker Scout that can build teleports, dispensers and sentries. Seeing that Sentries shut down close-range classes (well, pretty much Scouts, Pyros, and "what the fuck is that enemy engi doing here" stuff), but have a hard time against heavy classes (specially with medic). They hold the line but are not gamebreaking. And Engi is boring if you set up at intel and wait. Engi is not boring if you grab your shotgun and go and set up at THEIR intel. Of course if you play turtle is boring. At least until a spy/demo/soldier/heavy ruins your fun.

    If a sentry is around a corner close range coasses are more effective honestly.

    would you rather they were playing sniper, bumrushing into the enemy base with smgs

    honestly forming a defense like that is better than dying a lot
