So was the Caribou? It was the rarest prize in the Steam Winter Sale crafting. They're both limited, it just so happens that there's only one of each propaganda hat
Did scrap.tf completely stop selling normal stranges? I want to craft a stat clock.
I like how a discussion on hats has eclipsed people asking for comp passes. Guess well all haven't lost sight of the true priorities.
I'd gladly give out comp passes that I get, but I've been playing for hours and I haven't had any multiply.
Anyone up to make a Competitive Team? So far we are 2 in the team.
1. Scout (free)
2. Scout (free)
3. Soldier Roamer (free)
4. Soldier Pocket (sponge7325)
5. Demoman (free)
6. Medic (me, rualdcop)
Ever since this last update, I'm noticing a lot of invisible classes with just floating cosmetics.
man those pass gifts are rolling out like paper.
Guess i might be wrong.
I tried out comp but I just don't think I can enjoy it without being on a team, sucks none of my friends play any more. The result of playing on a team of randoms is mostly getting rolled. Maybe I'll enjoy it more when Valve add 9's.
I don't really know if i'm good or bad considering my play time. I'm usually among the best in a pub (yay, right) , but every now and then somebody is in the server who is just far and away better. I wonder how many hours they have in comparison.
On the plus side my aim has come back since resetting to the vanilla game. Ish
Does anyone know what Medic's "Horrido!" mean?
I know it's a hunting battle cry, but is there some sort of meaning (I.e. USA's "Hooah!") or is it like a cheer (I.e. USSR's "Ura!")
Playing 2fort and received another pass, launched the game an received a pass.
Well, at least I made someone happy today.
Got 3 more invite passes to give away.
Is there any rhyme or reason as to why the key's price fluctuates? It has started falling rapidly and I'm not really sure why.
Does anyone really believe we will get 9vs9 Highlander in competitive matchmaking?
1st time entering competitive and it took quite some time to connect + sent to Stockholm
no love for asia pacific
And then HK server with 1st abandon, dunno why I got 300 ping
I love MM players complain on pomson and pyro, especially when get constantly denied of their ubers.
I don't get what's wrong with pyro in comp, there are plenty of support uses for it.
1. There are always demomen and soldiers, this means plenty of projectiles to deflect everywhere.
2. May slowdown uber deployment or even keep it in track.
3. Works as great area denial for scouts.
4. With accuracy and flare gun it is possible to make life for snipers harder. Flinching from after burn may distract some snipers.
5. Back Burner is amazing for ambushes and it allows to kill several unsuspecting enemies quickly.
6. Decent mobility with power jack.
Also it does certain skill to pull thees things of and not die trying. It's not that easy to deflect rocket at rocket jumping soldier.
MM is pretty low stakes and you should just play whatever you want, but the reason Pyro isn't ran in comp is mostly due to his complete lack of mobility, meaning that the problem isn't that the Pyro can't be useful (he can), but that Demo, Soldier, or Scout just can do the same job but a lot better and faster. Reflects also still don't work well against stickies, which are the main thing you would want to reflect.
pyro gets very easily denied by scouts and demo's stickies, as well as two soldiers spamming them - and since pyro is more of an ambush/utility class they're pretty bad at offence, and terrible range makes them fairly useless at mid.
Of course, in less-organised places outside of scrims and matches (i.e. mm and some lobbies) pyro's still usable, but once you get some organisation going you can't really run pyro full time.
I think the Vita Saw is probably the most forgetable weapon in the game
Might also be the expected drop off, considering how long the keys have been at such high prices (at least 2 years by now?).
Of course I could be completely wrong, and chances are I probably am, since I'm just guessing, but there are a lot of contributing possible factors.
anyone get a problemwith the vanilla hud removing countdown timers?
Well then I got question to you all.
What would pyro, engi, spy would need to be more viable in MM/comp.
Engi I have noticed is usefully on with mini sentries and pomoson.
Pyro have been mentioned above.
I have never seen usefully spy in MM at all. Mostly due people's expirnace and communication.
How do I get a Gibus?
Spy, by design, is sadly less effective the more competent the enemy team is. I'm not sure if you could buff him at all without making him too good in lower levels of play.
Pyro is just... a mess. He's pretty useless by design and even years of buffs have still left him in a weird place where's he's better as a support class with his airblast than as an offensive class. I suppose when 9v9 begins he'll be more useful as you can afford to give up a slot for someone to guard the main classes and sentries from explosives, and watch out for Spies. Again, I honestly don't know what you could do to make Pyro better without running the risk of making him too powerful at lower levels.
