    I know it's super early but I will be on for the next hour. I did some invites but people seem to be eating.

    I am at work but no one has come in yet. I don't suspect anyone will considering no one has been in the past week. No one needs music theory tutoring this late in the semester.

    It would be super cool if an admin reads this if they could free us from awful maps and no alltalk.

    Thank you.

    EDIT: Apparently Crashisadumbmill works well for bringing in pubs.

    Good games tonight. I've got some more replays I took, I'll have to edit them later though. This one was my favorite of the night:



    Beta is the one getting his head stomped in.

    I love getting in on Honc shenanigans, but it always reminds me how much I need to improve (read: I am bad at this game). I feel like I'm free points to anyone who remotely knows what they're doing. >.<

    Definitely part of why I generally wander into Valve servers when I feel the itch to play. You get better players wandering around there too, but on the average I'm less likely to feel like I'm dragging my entire team down. I'll sit near or at the top of the board there, but I'm lucky to not be rock bottom when Honc'ing. Speaks to the calibre of player the server attracts, to be sure.

    That said, good times trainsawlaser'ing last night! Also, throwing people off cliffs a stony ridge.

    Walrus had a really good goomba stomp earlier when he accidentally walked off a ledge and fell about a foot onto some poor pub and got the kill.

    I probably have the worst mindset for this game. Every time I'm killed I blame some situational aspect uninvolved with the opponents skill, like walking into a soldier after dealing with another soldier that took half my health. Or the opponent having a medic glued to their ass 24/7, or turning around for no apparent reason at the exact right moment where I can't use any cover.

    Only after the game I realize that I overextend myself all the fucking time looking for a flank. I never stick with another dude, always take an alternate route for that sneak attack.

    Although when I do stick with a group I just become cannon fodder as they ignore all threats to focus down me the pyro behind the medic/heavy combo. I dunno what new playstyle/mindset I should try for improving.

    Also note I don't get the traditional idea of practice. The few times I got Walkway to work it just felt like dicking around and that this was not helping at all. Especially with airblast timings and airshots. Seems I would need a better custom scenario for those things, like a dodgeball server and whatever crap is available for airshots. Kinda hesitant on trying out a training map unless I'm doing it with dudes I know. Might be cool to try that once on HonC when I get back home.

    Valve servers are probably the best "training" out there. Pretty much any regular of the PA server will be a scoreboard topping asshole on a Valve server, which means instead of stressing out about whether you're helping the team, you can screw around with strategies and figure out how they work.

    Granted, when you come up against good players you still won't be great, but at least you'll have some experience under your belt which aids the learning process.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    In my day I was terrible playing on HonC and I just got my ass kicked every night until I learned to not suck.

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    Yeah, well in those days, HonC was full every night.

    These days you have to actually invite people to maybe get the place half full.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
  • Duke 2.0Duke 2.0 Registered User regular
    Like, I can hold my own with the usual guys and sometimes top the scoreboard if I'm lucky and for one brief moment everyone ignores me as I rain explosive death on everyone. But there are many situations where I could be better.

    So with that tale told, I'm off to PUBSTOMP.

    I don't like this game but I reinstalled it so people should play on the PA server.

    They also messed with the crit visual effect. Stickies look like goddamn christmas ornaments now, you can literally see the glow around corners.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    I doubt it was intentional.

    They seem to be doing that a lot lately.

    In about 10 minutes (5PM EST) there will be a map test of Stoneyridge on the TF2Maps server. Join on me or add 70.42.74.31:27015 to your server list.

    Thank you to everyone who came out and tested with us. If you can jump over and raise the roof with your thoughts on the test and map (LIKES, dislikes, LOVES, hates, issues, exploits, etc.) thanks. :)

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    I like how all the tf2maps regulars were getting cranky at the PAers actually using voice chat and having fun.

    Several of them were all 'best command ever is voice_enable 0 smug.gif'.

  • Bear is DrivingBear is Driving Shit, this isn't a bag at allRegistered User regular
    I like that half of us didn't even realize we weren't on honc.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    There shall be no fun had during map tests.

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    Unfortunately for them, having PAers playing probably gave them the best playtesting they've ever had. Some really bad players show up for those test runs.

    Stoneyridge tested the best of all the maps tested yesterday. Granted it's further along in development but we found some serious balance problems on everything.. Croissant was particularly bad.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    And wasn't it billed as RC2?

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    I wasn't paying attention but that's pretty bad if it was. It really looked great, visually it could be an RC, but playwise it needs a bunch of work.
