Just so you all know, I will not be showing up on the server again.

I'm giving up on TF2, possibly for good.

I just can't play well enough to match up with the regulars on the server.

You have a higher ranking than me in HL2stats.

You're good enough. :nicework:

But if you ever change your mind, try expert mode in offline practice. Bots are pretty smart. Don't be an obvious spy, they can tell if you do. Stuff like that.

If you are gonna leave forever, give me all your items!

Classy Brush.

Hoopy, in spite of what some people will say, the 'regulars' on OCR do present a slightly higher level of skill than you'll find on any other random pub server. The only way to get better at something is to practice, and to stop being so concerned with what you do. This isn't the Game Olympics, the fate of the country isn't based on how you do. It's just a bunch of friends getting together to kill each other. Take it easy.

In a pub environment where people end up mindlessly going for kills more than trying to work together and accomplish goals, its really easy to tunnel vision and just start mindlessly slamming your head against the opponent.

If you decide to play again Hoopy, next time you play remind yourself that you and every other player are vulnerable and can die easily when outnumbered. Try and work together and stick close to your teammates. Don't run around completely alone, stick with your buddies and look for openings for attack.

I know you play Pyro a lot, which is a class that many would argue is significantly underpowered in a lot of situations.

DUDE

I, like, suck at this game.

I get my arse handed to me on a silver platter every time I play OCR's servers.

Any regular who's seen me can probably attest to that.

But I don't care.

I keep playing anyways.

PLAY ON

oh and don't listen to brush give me all your items :D

@brushfire Just to spite you, I'm gonna craft all my weps to untradable metal and all my hats to hatless ones.

But seriously I'll reconsider leaving permanently. I just feel useless to any team no matter what i do right now.

Oh and powerlord, I wasn't kidding when I said to give the reserved slot to someone else. I really don't need it.

don't worry i'm really not the best either, the nice thing about tf2 is losing isn't really a big deal. unless you're playing competitively in which case it does but no one flames over games at ocr server do they?

if they do things have changed since i've been on

This is about the most casual regular-type server that I've seen. Hell, almost every round we have one or two people doing something goofy, and no one gives it a second thought.

I will confess to being irritated when half our team stops for a Heavy picnic on ctf_well when an enemy Scout continues to cap our intelligence repeatedly, but in general this is true.

It's easy to get that feeling after being thrown onto the side that gets rolled more than once.

The trick is to realize that if it's irritating you, and scrambles aren't happening, take a break and come back in a few hours.

As for classes itself, offline practice vs bots works surprisingly well in getting the kinks out. I've gotten myself pretty good at Sniper by just endless bot practice. Pick a class and see what you can do. Go Soldier and see if you can pop people into the air then nail them again. Go Pyro and practice poofing. Go Scout and practice being an ADHD son of a bitch will you stay fucking STILL FUCK you and your named scattergun.

If you want to test your team's intelligence, go Medic. If they don't protect you, there's no hope for them. Teamswitch or go to another server.

Or if you want, you can be like me and play every class a bit. But then I'm insane (and somehow still in the top 50, sometimes top 30, if anyone counts rank as important, which I don't). I basically just play a class I feel like until I get tired of it and then I switch. Above all, I make sure I"m having fun. If not, I say "eh" and go play Fallout for a week or something.

Everything in moderation, my good Hoopy! (And I was serious before, I think you're awesome and don't want you to go D: )

Personally, I think you have very bad luck. Hoopy. I don't really see you make a lot of mistake, but deaths always find you around the corner for some reason.

Doesn't help that we got insane Heavy like Frogg, Spy like Paranoid, Demo like Jimm on the server to discourage the rest of us.

As for going spy,

Never believe people who tell you Frogg can not be back stabbed. I have done it on numerous occasions. Rather than hate and get discouraged and ragequit with how he turns around all the time, keep trying until you get it right. Strive for the Froggstab and you will feel like you've become a good spy.

Another good thing about playing on a server with really good people is that you can watch their techniques and try to emulate them. I know Frogg has affected how I play Heavy, and while I'll never be a quarter as good as him, it's definitely improved me.

I can't even backstab a bot. >.<

I would say the only thing that annoys me sometimes is seeing a situation where some quick, easy teamwork would make something much easier (Destroying a GM sentry for example) but just no one steps up to the plate to make it happen. I feel like calling it out and saying, "Okay guys, lets do this. We need two medics..." etc. but I get the impression everyone will just ignore me. Instead we beat our heads against whatever is blocking us (GM sentry) for 6-8 minutes when a tiny bit of coordination would have it down in less than 3.

I will second this.

As for getting better on the OCR server, I found it helpful to either spec or just outright stalk the players I thought to be the best in each class. Sniper -> Lumpy, Spy -> Paranoid/Powerlord, Heavy -> Frogg, Demo -> Krug, Scoot -> Necro, etc. Not only did it help to become better at each class, I could avoid getting my ass handed to me as often.

Honestly, I think most people would listen to you. It doesn't even matter who's saying it; just the fact that someone has a plan can get things done.
