    Reposting from last thread because timing

    An alternative to TF2Center, TF2stadium, seems to be available starting March 19, i.e. today

    interesting timing what with mm round the corner as well

    I highly recommend players interested in competetive check this out - it offers a lot of improvements and better design than TF2center, and also has a lot of great and talented people on board. With controversy and questionable choices by TF2center staff, I'd say Stadiums the better choice by far

    Finally got to try out some MM and it's much better than I thought in terms of enjoyment

    Just feels nice to have something organized and high skilled after so long, especially coming from playtime exclusively spent in pubs

    This stress test has been going on forever but I don't mind

    Keep bumping into the same few people and it's overall been a really good experience except for when people keep fucking leaving before the game starts

    What's the "best" site where I can trade one of my keys for metal?
    Because I've heard that TF2outpost & Backpack.tf can be pretty scummy.

    They're fine really, especially for smaller things like keys. There's also bazaar.tf and tf2tp.com if you want other trading sites - none of them are the best, it all depends on the specific traders and their prices.

    There's also scrap.tf if you want to do it through bots without any hassle, though the bots pay a bit less than if you find a trader.

    This metal eating bug also exists when building a fresh teleporter. If you build one teleporter and it finishes the construction phase, build the second, then start upgrading the first, it will "heal" the second teleporter to full health before giving metal to upgrade the first teleporter.

    Red cross means you somehow don't meet the requirements to play matchmaking.

    Just went and named myself "manuel.rodriguez6" while playing Matchmaking with some friends, dominated some games as Sniper.

    I just wanted a name that made me seem like a new player, but instead it became a weird social experiment where people went full racist on me and started spouting Trump lines, jeez.

    I like to think I'd be ridiculously good by 2900 hours, but I'm experiencing epically diminishing returns already at 328 hours.

    Wonder if I'll even get that far.

    this is called "smurfing" in other videogames and is generally frowned upon.

    but then again there's this amazing trend where everyone decent at tf2 changes names every 5 minute so I guess we should be used to it.

    Even though it's diminishing returns, there's still a huge amount of playtime between 300 and just 1000 hours that the difference is really noticeable, you don't have much to worry about :P

    He literally just changed his name on steam though??

    It's not like he intentionally deranked or started a new account.

    Smurfing is where a high ranked player creates a new account to play with lower ranked players, not when you change your name to trick people into thinking you're a new player.

    Another case of smurfing is intentionally playing badly to be at a lower rank.

    smurfing is where you to play with players at a lower rank than you and thus a lower skill level than you so that you can win easily

    what they were doing was just making the enemy possibly underestimate them in an otherwise normal game

    Not really, he just took advantage of people's preconceptions. He didn't abuse the system to get matched up with less skilled people.

    Well, a friend invited me to his party in MM and we managed to win 10 of our 11 games, we had a little of team coordination and victory was achieved, and I'm no longer a Carne Fresca. It feels good

    Apparently the only class I manage to get some points with in MM is Medic. After such long break from normal matches my aim went to shit.

    While some comp players are selling beta passes for a quick and senseless profit, others are giving them away to randos in their stream with very little provocation! I'm glad I checked on what Sideshow was up to for a few minutes tonight.



    EDIT: Well, this is interesting. I just booted up the game and found this as a random drop:



    I knew the passes were spreading soon, but I had no idea they would be so viral in nature. My pass literally generated another in less than an hour of existence.

    EDIT 2: It just made another 2!

    A guy was offering to give out passes for keys and I said I'd buy one if he let me wait a week to buy it from the store.
    Then he told me "Hunt, if you get three golds this match, I'll give you the pass for free"
