    I'll be installing the game and joining the server tonight after work.

    Let's see if I still know how to play.

    Also: If someone is really really good at seeing the hidden: He may have an older graphics card. The older your card, the easier to spot.

    I just played on a server with four amiable British gentlemen.

    It was like all Flippy, all the time.

    I did pretty well, but the best of them killed me with the bloody paintball gun.

    Except that Flippy is a grizzled Australian man you twit ;)

    I will be joining you all in this. i just redid my computer so I hope to get steam and everything up and running tonight.

    No. The settings don't count it's the hardware.
    There were many people who actually saw the hidden as a completely black model and were always shouting "lolz why is the hidden so easy to spot?"

    Hidden Guide in spoiler (no pics, if someone would get them I'd be thankful)
    THIS IS NOT EVERYTHING
    DO NOT WHINE TO ME ABOUT THIS
    THIS IS ENOUGH TO TELL SOME OF YOU WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHY I CAN'T WIN
    Being The Hidden
    This is a simple guide to being the Hidden, killing the IRIS, not getting spotted, and installing fear in the IRIS.
    The Basics
    Let's go over the basics of what the Hidden has and the IRIS doesn't. First, the Hidden is invisible, but not completely, I will go into this more in a bit. Second, he has pigstick. Third, grenades. Fourth, you can pounce. Fifth, you get AURA VISION. This is the first thing I will go into because none of you fucks use it. Goddamn seriously.
    Aura Vision
    This is one of the most useful things you have, it shows the enemy, and their life left. The only downsides? It drains your Hidden meter and you have to stand still to use it. This is the thing I use to kill a ton of you guys easily.
    Invisibility
    Whether you like it or not, in this game, you have invisibility. Now, this may be the most awesome thing ever, but you need to act visible. Why? otherwise you'll get screwed over because you are visible and can be killed. The way to dodge this is not to get in the way of flashlights, LAMS, or moving in the way of others. The way to avoid having this happen? ACT VISIBLE AND USE AURA VISION! Flashlights may seem useless, but they are something to always avoid. Always. LAMS are the same, you can see them with aura vision.
    Pouncing
    A move that should be used as your number one transportation. Only time you shouldn't be using it is when you are waiting for your energy to go back up. On the subject of pouncing, you can hold onto walls by clicking pounce whilest on a wall.
    Pigstick
    If it isn't banned, use it. It's a one hit kill and it may piss off people, but hey, it works.
    Slashin' Like a true man
    It takes 3 normal hits to take down a person with normal slashing, 100>63>23>0 (that's 3 because you start at 100) Now, you can't do this all at once, use both pouncing AND slashing. Pounce into the air, slash their heads, then run away, see how much life they have with Aura, then either grenade or slash. ALSO, slashing a corpse not killed by pigsticking or grenading results in a corpse you can attack 5 (4?) times for 5 life each.
    Grenades
    Use these AND aura vision to make the most of them, but remember physics and a timer. Also use it to weaken or kill people in large groups. This will help with the fear element.
    FEAR
    This is the way to make yourself successful or unsuccessful in the game as Hidden. First, you need not make TOO much fear or try too hard. Doing that will get you killed. Secondly, pause to think if this is needed. If there is not friendly fire on, I do not completely recommend using fear. Thirdly, use a mix of grenades and slashing random objects to get fear in. Fourth, use taunts, please, they creep the fuck out of everyone.
    Things I will not go into
    Throwing objects to kill in one hit.
    Certain weapon defenses
    Certain map strats
    Things that are too short for their own article
    Use use on a corpse then pigstick to a wall to, well, stick them to a wall.
    You don't regain energy while in the air or being stuck to a wall.

    Repox, I have great success at sitting in a corner, crouched, lying in wait as the Hidden.

    I play like I am invisible and people just seem to stroll on by. :P

    You're pretty bad at this. Ten whole minutes? That's like two rounds of Hiddening.

    I'm waiting.

    That sucks. I'd attempt to run something from here, but I've got voodoo magic firewalls and a DSL modem, so I don't think you fine people would like to play at like 500ping.

    Just downloaded it and played for awhile. Spending 2 minutes looking for my team members and walking into a hallway to find all of their corpses hanging upside down from the ceiling is as scary as hell. Even more so after hearing a splash just behind me.

    Playing as Hidden is amazingly fun, especially with the mindset it puts you in.

    As for the server issue, perhaps we could all join an empty pub sometime tomorrow?

    I hate hate hate those moments where you know the hidden was just there, so you go to a little corner to scope him out, then right when you turn around, you realize you fell directly into his trap.

    Super awesome.
