    Is there a good site that teaches you how to play? The tf2manual.net link in the OP doesn't seem to work and all my googling just leads me back to the wiki.

    Where can I find a site that links to articles/videos about how to rocket jump and things like that?

    i just join a nice pubbie server and occasionally refresh

    has worked for me!

    yeah same, or I tool around with my crafting screen and refresh every so often to see what's happening

    or I message someone in the server to let me know when the map is changing

    that's how I got in earlier today, anyway

    I get requests from multiple people asking me to make people rage quit to make room on the server. :?

    Degreaser: "Spaceballs: The Flamethrower" w/ description text "The kids love this one."

    I named my Mackerel "What did the fish say to the face?", with the description "Slap!".

    I had a Level 10 Vintage Huntsman named "I'm mad", which should've been "I mad" in response to "U mad?", but I screwed it up. Endaro ended up with it after a backpack bug moved my 78 huntsman from its designated slot and I ended up crafting it, because he's a caring soul who minds my well being and traded me his 87 huntsman.

    I once had a high-voiced soldier whine at me that Uber on him would be useless and to find someone else to heal. He was the only teammate around and I was building up my uber and we were on way to point 2.
    It was a special moment when I first wished I could kill a teammate.

    Unless you're not good at it. I've heard people on the PA server bitching about newbie medics.

    If someone has a spare Jarate, Ubersaw, or Sandvich (or all of them) I need at least one to make scraps. Check my back pack in my sig for stuff. I have a number of crates that I will likely not be purchasing a key for as well.

    You know that you can craft any two items from the same class into scrap, right?

    Well, 20 minutes in a random public server reaffirmed that I am rusty as hell at this game and it isn't enjoyable to get curbstomped on a team with no communication.

    Yep.

    But none of those are from the same class.

    OK, is there a trick to getting the escape the heat achievement for a summer sale ticket. I have been lit on fire and jumped in water like 10 times now and no achievement, but I saw six people get it while I was playing in a pub 2fort server just now.

    Pubs on ctf are so easy. We had 6 Engineers and a teleporter in their intel room.

    e: I just got it by getting lit by a pyro for a split second, hopped in the water to get it, went into the pipe and dinged the same pyro in the face with a rocket when he tried to follow me. But killing the pyro was unrelated. You should just hop in while on fire and it should work.

    You are a non-pyro when you try it right?

    I hope they're bitching about Medics who go around syringe gunning or trying to melee people to death (which I've seen exactly once), because if not, my Care-o-Meter is pretty much zero. If I'm the only person who switches classes when there's no Medic about, then I reserve the right to tell anyone who complains about a poorly-timed Uber or bitches about not getting heals when they rocket/sticky/quad jump across half the map away from me, then I reserve the right to tell them to fuck off.

    Yeah I have tried it as both scout and soldier.
    Maybe it's my connection and it's just not getting updated, I have had that happen before now that i think about it.

    edit: bleh i just made a Facebook page i'll never use to get the shades instead. If I get the achievement i'll just put the ticket toward that alien breed 2 game.

    Could be a bug. I swear I had the Combined Fire achievement flash up on my screen while playing today but then I looked at it outside (and later inside) the game and it said I had 6/20 completed.

    Make a local server on 2fort, add a pyro bot and get it.

    You will need to generate a navmesh for the map, the wiki says how to do it.

    Is a local server with bots treated differently from offline practice? Because it didn't work for me when I did it with bots. You can also use lakeside, which already works with bots and has water on it.

    or something like that

    Press the + button next to the find server to create a server. It works, thats how I got the achievement.

    You just need to turn sv_cheats off, exit out, and relaunch it after you make the navmesh.
