The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[TF2] is now FREE!! You have no excuse not to play. Meet the Medic in OP!!

    Here's the thing.

    - Coat someone in jarate so others can kill them easier.
    - Just kill that person in the first place

    One of these things is roughly infinitely better than the other.

    And frankly, snipers who stand around at the back slowly full charge body shotting people are shit at sniper. Which is what the sleeper's stats were designed for. Bad snipers.

    Anyone interested in a Strange Shotgun?

    That shotgun still up for grabs?

    http://www.tf2items.com/id/ayrios

    Got quite a few items and would be willing to trade another strange weapon (Natascha / Direct Hit) or some spare items for it.

    Willing to let go of those security shades for it?

    It does not.

    The jarategun cannot bodyshot a medic or sniper, and it cannot headshot anyone.

    And honestly you are going to be more effective with the normal sniper rifle, even if you just body shot them, since it will tear a chunk out of their health and doesn't require other people to shoot them.

    Should make the sleeper not be able to charge but be able to get headshots. Jarate applies on headshot.

    That would basically have to make the jarate effect be contagious and apply without them physically touching in order for it to be even close to being as effective as just one shotting someone. Or just make it a huge AoE cloud when it hits.

    You can still one shot all of the weaker classes, the stronger guys you'll injure but they'll get jarated and killed

    Well this is a weird bug. I'm airblasting but I'm not losing ammo and it's not pushing anyone :(

    Were you on honc?

    Yea I was on HONC. Was happening to all of us: we'd be able to airblast once, then once we respawned it would show us client side airblasting but the ammo counter would immediately go back to full and no-one would get blasted. Disconnecting and reconnecting to the server wouldn't fix it.

    When I played WoW I played Rogue a ton and exclusively hunted down healers and other squishies.

    Now I play TF2 and as just about any class I actively hunt down medics with a passion. They do SO MUCH for their team. Taking them out for 10+ seconds plus run time is an amazing way to help your team out.

    As a scoot, rush in that shit and pop a few meat shots into a medic, you can easily slip in over the heads/ around whoever they are healing. Hell, jump off that fat bastard and take out his medic.

    I decided to open a soldier crate thinking I couldn't get something I didn't want but of course I got a Strange Direct Hit which is awful because Direct Hits are awful. Anything have another strange weapon they want to trade for it? (Not a chargin targe or pain train).

    Actually I'll take almost anything new in trade for it. Looking for Soda Popper or Quick Fix especially.

    I also got the Heavy Jaws for trade since fuck crafting the skull mask for 4 refined.

    Really? 100% charge deals 128-172. So it can't always kill a medic in one hit but snipers only have 125 health.

    No, he's right. HonC always gets bad when it's populated (with over, say, 18 players). I played on Zissou a couple days back with a single other person and there was some jerky teleporting around going on - although it could have been just that one time. HDC has been the best of the bunch in my experience but I think the game has gotten a lot laggier in general in the past few months.

    I account for overcharging since everyone I shoot always has it, which gives snipers between 185/225, which means you plink their chest and they plink your face.

    So, what is up with premium stuff? I was on an orange_x3 map, and there was a dude jumping hundreds of feet through the air at superhuman speeds, raining death from above, and I asked about it, and all I heard was "fucking premium accounts."

    If this is what TF2 is becoming with the advent of F2P, I'd rather go back to when you had to pay to buy the game and you couldn't buy items, considering I did pay for the game. :(

    • The Winger
    • The Market Gardener
    • The Big Earner
    • Nessie's nine iron (eyelander reskin)
    • A ton of crates
    • and anything on the first page

    Also, the Sydney Sleeper is good because you don't have to deal with lag or TF2's crappy headshot detection.

    no, they mean premium features of that server

    some servers have dumb "donate $10 to our server and get 10 sec of god mode a round!" type things, don't play on those kinds of servers, they probably have a million other problems with them
