OCR TF2: New Server forthcoming - new server IPs and other stuff


Recommended Posts

I use the Eyelander. I don't necessarily use the Chargin' Targe. Learn the difference, please.

Currently I have the Scottish Resistance equipped, if memory serves.

i never understood why people did this

well theres always the tactic to get 4 heads with the targe then go swap for the sticky launcher and go nuts but i dont see the logic in using the eyelander without the targe

you really shouldnt melee all that much if youre playing regular demo anyway and if you do and youre on a server with crits on part of the aim when meleeing (at least in many of the times id been forced to) is to get a crit melee and do 195 and that will never happen with the sword unless you use the targe too

but hey i dont mind when opposing demos use the eyelander because uncharged headshots do 150 and the sword is the difference between you dying instantly and being able to go heal

Atmuh, you're forgetting I play Spy. I'm already used to my melee not critting and dying when the wind blows the wrong way. Besides, I thought the Blutsauger proved that "No critical hits" is pretty much worthless as a tradeoff? (Granted, melee crit rate > normal crit rate, but still.)

Hell, with the Ambassador, I NEVER get random crits as Spy.

So, was Valve's blog post about the (cut) Engineer Repair Node mentioned yet?

That was a good read. A lot more insight into Valve's process than usual.

If they do offer unlockable buildings, I hope they come as a set in a different PDA. The mixing and matching discussed in the post seems entirely too troublesome.

the blut was different because the lack of crits was replaced with an overwhelming benefit

in the case of the eyelander youre getting no crits and a huge downgrade

with the blut you only wanted to hit the enemy a few times as you were escaping not kill him because thatd still heal you

in the case of the eyelander to get the bonus you need to nail a killing blow with it which is rather difficult when it only does around 50-60 or whatever the damage is

still the nocrits so its balanced thing is pretty annoying especially since i spend the vast majority of my pubbing on a server with crits off

without crits the eyelander is definitely more inviting but i still dont like getting killed by snipers super easy

and yes melee crits are a lot more powerful than regular crits

oh and now i remember why i prefer regular harvest over harvest event (even though i really hate them both)

my framerate on final is 60 and event is 10

So, I heard rumors that the Valve master servers were just restarted after being updated, and removed/readded the master servers to our game servers.

SUPPOSEDLY, this will fix the Linux servers constantly being disconnected and delisted from the masters.

Observations from tonight:

  • I take my Spying seriously.
  • I get angry with myself when I fail repeatedly for several lives in a row. Very angry.
  • Nothing is better for curing this anger than landing some sweet headshots with the Ambassador.

Also apologies to atmuh, who I told to "kindly stfu" if memory serves, but I was a bit testy at the time, for the above reasons.
