    Those of you who play spy, do yo usually run around with your knife out or with your revolver out?
    Whenever I have anything anything other than knife out I have urges to switch to knife. So yeah, almost always have the knife out.

    I generally switch to revolver instantly after stabbing and turn around to face anyone who might have seen me from behind, other than that I don't have it out too often.

    Depends on the situation, but something like revolver from spawn until the part where i get stabbing and then revolver again when im running away from something.

    the steam awards just tied up earlier today and tf2 did not win the test of time award.
    i'm not exactly mad about it not winning, im just miffed that it lost to skyrim of all games
    The irony is that while TF2 is barely a decade old, it's the oldest one nominated by a longshot. Most of the "test of time" games are 4-5 years old. I was expecting something more along the lines of Quake or Unreal '99 when I saw there was a "Test of Time award". Hell, I would loved to see Team Fortress Classic on there.

    Usually, I have my knife out for that off chance of a pick out of thin air. But I also have it set up so I hit Q ( quickswitch button to last weapon equipped ) to swap to my revolve if I need to use it to defend myself.

    Although, I generally just cloak everywhere, so if I actually do get caught they'd more then likely kill me before I could even uncloak lol.

    Second oldest. Age of Empires 2 was also a nominee.

    Knife when I know enemies are close and revolver for far off picks when I'm away from the action.

    Age of Empires 2 HD came out in 2013 but is a remaster of the original game which came out in 1999. If we ignore the fact that its technically a re-master TF2 was the oldest game on the list. (2007)

    Both these games are still pretty old compared to most of the list. The third oldest I could find was Civ 5 coming out in 2010. (With Skyrim and Terraria both in 2011, and the remaster of skyrim being 2016.)

    Generally the knife.

    Oh lordy lord casual on the holidays is an adventure.

    4 times in a row half my team was sniper/spy and if we won is was by the hair's back. I've seen spies running around knifing the air undisguised like it's CSGO. Everyone pretty muchs bails at the first sign of losing meaning there's a lot of 4 vs 6 matches because everyone keeps quitting both teams. It's such a shitshow and I don't know if I should find it funny or sad.

    Edited:

    Not to mention a few hours ago I solo killed an entire team as a soldier in a 4v5 and my teammates consisted of (actually pretty good) engineer and two spies who had no idea what they were doing.

    We really do need an Overwatch style "please don't play this class" warning thing. It won't stop everyone but it would help.

    He's playing the long game.

    He'll be your best friend and play games with you for 2-3 years, expose his deepest darkest secrets to you, and then one day he'll take one of your hats and run.

    Its devious.

    Only Custom Hud Element I use is this one titled "Numerical Health Values".



    Makes it easier to read the numbers that appear over teammates heads when you aim at them. Also changes the color of the numbers if they're overhealed or low on health.

    The HUD i have is just some edits on the default HUD's minimal mode so it's some sort of centered mode instead.
    I don't really want massive changes on the HUD, just centering and adjusting some stuff was enough for me.
    It can be seen here

    I'd make a "half full" remark but that's just being a dick.

    Might just be your region isn't very populated at that time of day.

    does anyone know any servers that run vanilla TF2? Aka: No cosmetics, no skins and no unusuals.

    I'm starting to kinda miss this game nowadays.

    The only time I have ever experienced vanilla TF2 is when the item servers are down. That might be your best bet sadly.

    Nothing it seems. Some people think we should receive an update soon/this month due to the lack of "big" updates last december.
    In terms of the actual game: nothing.

    Slow matchmaking, and the biggest patch drought we've ever seen. Things are really unchanged since Summer.

    There was this one server some time around 2014 or 2015 and it was exactly no items allowed ( allowed unique taunts for some reason though ), ran the tf2 launch mapcycle and allowed hldj micspamming AND it DID have quite alot of players when i went there that time.

    So it IS possible, but i don't know if people would play that in current year.

    This is seriously the guy who wrote 6 pages of feedback and sent it to the tf team? Has he really been helping Valve with competitive mode? What happens when the TF team doesn't include his vastly "superior" ideas into the game?

    I don't follow the competitive scene much and seeing this doesn't really encourage me to follow it more. I can totally see how MYM happened if Valve has been getting competitive feedback from people like B4nny. I wouldn't want to listen to his feedback about competitive at all and I can't imagine what it must be like for the TF team to have to deal with him.

    Well, played my first comp match, was on Process.

    We had a guy leave our team within the first two minutes. Even with the bot playing engy on our first point the entire first match and medic not knowing how to leave spawn unless it has a babysitter the second, we actually held out pretty well. We even made it to their last point three times between the two rounds, but ultimately we lost 0-2.

    B4NNY is so stupid, he's a stuck up ass hole (man thats a bad word combination) because he knows he pretty much the most famous tf2 comp player (really not saying much tho), but because hes the face of comp tf2 all the shit that he says in does just make comp tf2 seem like even more of a joke to everyone else, im sure its part of the reason valve doesn't sponsor tf2 either.

    My issue with B4nny is that he strongly believes that if you don't believe in a competitive TF2 then you don't believe in TF2. At this stage I find it very hard to believe TF2 can remain in any competitive place given the balances and matchmaking we've been given during its lifespan.

    Sometimes it feels good to go back to TF2. Visit a community server and have a laugh with every single person. They can be RED, BLU or the Spectator Micspammer, but hell, this is one of the very, very few games in which you can have a conversation about anything.
