    yeah those people are terrible at what they do.

    I like that the firing noise and blip-beeps of the mini-sentry are so annoying that it triggers something in people's brains that makes the little gun the priority instead of the engineer pumping shotgun shells or pistol rounds into their backs. Hell I've run up and FISTO'D a few pyros and heavies who did that.

    I'm always amused when I place a sentry that catches a rocket jumping soldier high into his jump, pelts him a bit, and then he falls to his death because he never made it up to where he wanted to land.

    i am addicted to cool sticky traps

    like putting them in some props

    or on a lamp

    shit like that gives me bonerz
    there is a part of me that wishes sticky bombs would still occasionally shoot into walls, and slowly seep out again

    I like it when a Engineer risks his ass to knock a sapper off a mini-sentry. Just let it die and rebuild it.

    That's the best thing ever. Hell, the spy just saved you the trouble of blowing it up yourself for glorious FJ master race crits.

    also is it just me or is the pellet spread on the FJ tighter than the normal shotty?

    Bwahaha. Just played on a random server with a medic that had his friends as an escort pyro and... I think heavy. I was also pyro, but once a spy managed to stab him HOLY SHIT the blue streak he swore at me and only me was quite impressive. It was probably for the best I didn't have my headset plugged in, I couldn't stop laughing.

    Some people take random middle-of-the-night matches way too seriously.

    I thought the exact opposite :/

    I seem to get a lot more 3s from the FJ than the normal one

    So what's this line of thinking springing up that Natascha is somehow "underpowered and useless" and only good to use on scouts?

    According to CEVO, natascha should be banned for 6v6.
    http://www.cevo.com/index.php?page=forum&func=viewthread&id=10640&forumID=2

    Personally though, when you have full on 12v12 as we do on the servers, I prefer sasha over natascha, since I like to spend as little time spinning and leaving less chance to being flanked due to tunnel vision.

    the wrangler was banned because it is a new unlock that might have stupid amounts of turtling potential in 6v6

    so options were lower engy amount to 1

    (which is silly because a regular strat on some final points, like gravelpit, is two engies)

    or to ban the potentially gamebreaking (at the 6v6 scale) item for a season and see how it goes

    i do not like the idea that competitive organizations are "fun haters" just because they are trying to keep a competitive metagame have a semblance of balance

    I know the engy isn't supposed to be all the powerful, but on more than one occasion last night I had the FJ charged up and unloaded into someone several times and they turn around and shoot me dead. WTF. I have more success with the pistol. I wish they would change the shotgun to have shorter range and higher damage. It feels worthless even at close range.

    I thought it was Christmas last night. Server starts emptying out and so my last few games before going to sleep, and we don't have a heavy so I hop in that. Not only did the opposing team have 3-4 scouts, but the rest of their team was engineer with maybe 1 soldier.

    So many low HP classes to whittle down with Natascha. Then a sniper showed up and shot me in the face :(

    I want to start a league where it's 11 players on a side plus a coach who tells people what class to be. Maybe even 'call a few plays'.

    Only that way can the true creativity of TF2 come out in competitive form.

    I just hate when I'm running around doing my own thing, pewpeing bad guys, and some medic spots me and pops an uber for no fucking reason.

    It completely wrecks my rhythm and I am 100% guaranteed to waste the entire uber trying to decide what I should be attacking. Invariably I switch targets several times and accomplish nothing.

    Yeah, and usually when I get an uber we turn the corner into 5 sentry guns and I get airblasted and pushed around and then can't do anything anyway.

    I love when engies throw down mini sentries when I'm soldier. Free kill for me.

    My normal sentries are usually free kills for soldiers anyway.

    It's to the point where I'm beginning to think that building a sentry has a hidden side effect of causing a soldier to spawn somewhere in the level, who's only objective is to find the new sentry gun and destroy it.

    Alien swarm has finally become the game to turn me away from my serious tufftoo habit
    I've been gradually losing interest anyway, but never really had anything serious to keep me away

    I'm already a bit tired of Alien swarm, but the mod potential is so ridiculous that it will only be a matter of time

    so in short valve needs to hurry up with that Tankbuster if they still want my tufftoo lovin'. I can't get enough of the art for that soldier pack.

    true, but the version of granary we play now is almost identical to launch

    granary with gates is the map that we have lost to the sands of time

    i'd love to build a sentry under the ground of gravelpit on a pub

    Maybe they banned it so that they can test it in controlled conditions first?

    Or am I giving them too much credit? I don't know much about competitive gaming.
