no one seems to complain about his micspamming

it is kind of hard to hear people complaining when you CANNOT HEAR WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

I complained about his micspamming a lot. There is a difference between good micspam and bad micspam, learn it.

To the people that are learning to play sniper, I wasn't there for any of the shit or whatever made you feel like posting those comments, but there are noob servers where you can learn to play. If you know you are a terrible sniper, and your team is losing, and you just so happen to have 2-3 other snipers on your team, you should not be playing sniper. In the end I really don't care unless you are on my team.

And my god why would you kill sudden death? admin abuse voteban powerlord (only for like 10 minutes because you are a cool dude in my book, or at least, were a cool dude). No sudden death is just stupid. It's pretty much like a super quick version of arena.

Should we get rid of arena now too?

I personally can't stand 90% of spectre's stuff. I find him, and a few others recently, to be very annoying. No one has made a complaint about it ever though, so I've just client side muted him. I often want to start a votemute, but I didn't know how to do that until today when Brush told me in game. I didn't exactly catch how to do it... so if you could post here how to do a custom vote... I'd appreciate it!

And about what ducky said on n00b snipers:

I agree with him. Learning how to play a certain class is all fine and dandy, but if your team is getting massacred because you're the 5th sniper and you're playing sniper to learn... it's a little frustrating.

A LOT frustrating actually. I've found myself getting more and more annoyed at people's lack of interest in playing like a team. So many times I'll have to stop playing sniper, or demo, or scout, or soldier to do something else. For this reason I've been playing alot more medic and engie (which any person with one arm can do.. no offense) and not enjoying myself as we lose dispite already playing a class I don't even want to play in an effort to help the team.

I enjoy playing every class don't get me wrong, but I enjoy not playing a certain class to make up for 3 spies, 4 snipers, and 3 scouts trying to push a cart past a team of engies, heavy medics, and pyros.

I know. TLDR. whatever

Let me know who's interested in some scrims. I only have Black Waltz, and Bardic so far.

Well, one of two things. First, micspam. Spectreshot's especially. Most of the time when he's playing stuff, I can't even hear anyone else. I had to mute him tonight. Just wondering if anyone else felt the same way about him being an annoying ass.

I feel the same way. I mute him as well, mostly because he gives me a headache with his music (and sometimes his talking).

Wait, you mean Engies on opposing teams are teaming up to do that? That's called griefing... definitely bannable.

No, I mean like two engies on the same team doing it. The two doing it tonight were in the same clan, but had sentry guns set up on dustbowl level 3 point 1 up in the doorway. Basically they had a tele entrance and exit right next to each other, and bouncing back and forth. Someone on red complained about it, since they didn't have one of the entrances set up for when point A got taken, and one of them doing it said "well, we don't see a reason to do it cause we don't need it right now" and kept doing it. Of course at the end of the round those two were MVPs.

I might as well jump in. While I find the chant wav he's got amusing, and his library of stuff passable, if predictable, SpectreShot is a drama queen, and a bit of a baby when things don't go his way. I know he's become a regular, occasionally does great things for the community (meatspin), and he's gotten pretty cozy with Brushfire. Despite all that, I still think we'd be better off if the antics were reined in somewhat. If that proves impossible, then I guess it's time to drop the hammer.

Count me in. Assuming standard format, I'm comfortable with scout or medic. Soldier... Ehhh, if you need it, but it's really not my forte.

Agreed. I always have to shake my head and wonder why people think three snipers and three spies, or some variation on those numbers, leads to victory. I understand it's fun when it's not so serious (i.e. everyone switches for the lulz), but when a team is actually trying to win, please pick a more useful class.

I'm up for scrimming at any time as well.

FYI, I leave for Taiwan on July 9th, so if we're going to scrim after that, I won't be able to since my laptop = fail.

Now that you mention it, I should also point out that I'll be out of town from July 19 to August 10th more or less for courses and will be unable to play. I'll also be busy the weekend of July 10th, but only because I'd be killed were I to skip my wedding and ditch family and friends to play TF2 (or so I've been told). Aside from those, any time should work for me as long as we're setting something up a few days in advance.

At long last, Dr. Tiddlywink has been banned. He was cussing Yahoo out pretty nastily, and while that offense in itself is relatively small, he's been a thorn in our collective side for some time.

I won't miss him one iota. He did nothing but complain and troll, and make progressively more terrible versions of downtown. Good riddance.

I've never scrimmed before, I'd be interested in trying it. Also, I got the patch recently. It's amazing!

Third thing, lightning. Fried out modem, then my father went out of town and I was unable to set up a new modem... I'm elsewhere, on my crappy laptop right now, but hopefully when I get back to my gaming pc I'll have the internet again... I don't like not being able to kill you guys :P

yes, everything absolutely low

it might get lucky to get 12, but it always goes to 9 fairly quickly and seems locked there. Never goes under 9 fps

windowed lowest resolution?

that's what I used to do when I played with the laptop, and it was being stupid with me.

Also I used to like tiddly and I thought he was a pretty good guy then something changed and he wasn't anymore. So I'm kind of indifferent about his ban. I guess I'll miss the old him and not the new one?

Also, did you guys make sure to tell him that his doors didn't work? Because they didn't work the last time I played. I kept getting stuck in them and I tried to tell him that they didn't work, but he wouldn't listen. Because the doors didn't work.

Everything low, windowed 640x480, still pretty much locked at 9 fps. I've read through various google searches other people who have this problem (who didn't used to, but through a random game update suddenly did) -- locked at 9 fps as well.

I am wondering if it's a bug

From my experience, programs tend to run better in full screen, not windowed.

BTW, if I may ask, who's this Tiddlywink banhammer victim?

who's this Tiddlywink banhammer victim?

As I understand it, he was a random pub player who showed up one day, enjoyed himself, and started coming back pretty often. At some point(prior to when I started to play here, which was in early March), he turned into a troll who would start arguments just to rile everyone up. Not even good arguments; the stupid 'my opinion is fact, if you disagree with me you are an idiot' kind.

He was trying his hand at mapping around this time as well, and turned out a little number called cp_downtown. I've heard the original was pretty good, though it had some minor technical problems. All the versions I've played were meh or awful. We still have 2 of them on the server, though I can't remember which ones just now.

Have you tried putting:

-dxlevel 80

(or maybe 81) in the startup options? Might help. It should reset your advanced video options so make sure to set those again and then take it out of the startup options next time you play again.

I almost cried. He was being mean! :(

Seriously though, he crossed the line. I've been tolerant of him almost 100% of the time, but today was very different. He turned into an 8 year old with a temper tantrum because the maps he nominated weren't being played. Then when I told him to just chill out and have fun (because playing a "bad" map is better than sitting at more loading screens), the cursing began. I told him that spamming "rock the vote" in voice or text is a kickable offense, and he got even more whiny. I could hear it in his voice that he was getting really personal with his words. garian had enough and banned him. At least I think it was garian.

Re: People complaining about too many Snipers in response to trying to learn sniper.

I can't play Sniper if there are 3 already on my team. Like, my left hand will reach over and beat my right hand against the computer if it tries to select sniper.

Also, am I the only person who just doesn't care what map we're on? Seriously, I play whatever's set in front of me. Some have their pros, some have their cons, but I just have fun wherever I am.
