Post your rants here! (no rants about other people here)

Recommended Posts

I can't understand why people rant about Pyros and Backburners.. And Whale is right, Pyros are usually W+M1 since they have no choice when they try to attack without using the backdoor.

 

Either you're complaining because you fall victim of it, or you see most newbies using it.

 

You may have not seen me switch Throwers sometimes but I do.

 

Let's just say:

 

STOP THE COMPLAINING ABOUT PYROS AND ITEMS! IF YOU THINK IT SUX THAT MEANS YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE IT THAT EFFECTIVELY

 

It's just like Sandman. Teh 75% thing is just IMBA already. I stun people to avoid getting myself killed while trying to kill something that's not stunned (Medic pairs anyone? Or those spots with a Pyro and another dude sitting near him?).

 

Backburner is well at, well, backburning. They are supposed to be annoying like FaN, but they are effective at pissing you off now are they? Look, the Backburner's job is to make you angry because of backdoors and now people say "OMIGOSH BACKBURNER SUX LIKE T3H SHIT". I could clearly say you suck more for falling victim of it. Look at Lemming (and not Cluster - she's not that hard to kill and dominate :/), he's doing well with it cuz he knows how to use it.

 

FaN? Knockback is just annoying, yes, but scoots are supposed to be. They are not killers, they are itty bitty tiny midgets that hinder you from going on by annoying you like hell.

 

Razorback.. If you have fast reaction and and are a Machete ninja then this is very useful while Jarate is less since you won't be needing it in killing things if you're skilled with the machete. Razor is to persuade Soys (with an O) to shoot you, giving you actual time to go kill 'em with a machete. If you can't then it's either you just looked at the scope too long or he got extremely lucky. I've backstabbed flashy a number of times cuz he has Jarate and shot him with my revolver since he looks very long at his scope. Let's just say try to prevent that when you have Razor and you will be a very effective Sniper with it (but not with Hunts, that's just bad!).

 

I can't support BONK since I never used it, but I'm sure there is some use to it.

 

I'm just trying to imply that you shouldn't start complaining about anything because you're annoyed of it or you don't know how to use it that well. It's really annoying in since it practically pops out more than 5 times in a day, in mic or not..

I used to be an exclusive razorback sniper, and quite a few times it has saved me from certain death from revolver spies. I usually have enough time to turn around and machette them, or more likely turn around and quickscope them, since in my experience it is too difficult to get the two machette hits before the spy gets his three revolver shots. That's changed for two reasons though. The first reason is that most spies are ambassador wielders, and I have never successfully killed a spy after they headshot me. The second reason is that, the more I play, the more I am able to figure out how long I can stay scoped before I should turn around and check for spies. Because of this, I am finding more and more spies before they are able to backstab me, and when I do having jarate makes it so much easier to kill them by removing their ability to cloak. Not to mention the added ability to be able to throw it over a crowd of people for a ton of assists and credit-to-teamness. Now, the only time I use razorback is when I'm in a remote location, very far away from my team, where I need to stay scoped for long periods of time in order to get effective shots.

STOP IDLING! D:

 

I logged onto Steam in the morning to find all my buddies playing Team Fortress 2.

Oh how excited I was to get on the server and bug them! 8D

 

But as I chose my class, I noticed an ominous silence hanging about the lovely server...

 

 

They're all idling.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

I hate high pings

 

I hate FaN Fags

 

I hate persistent twats who keeps on attempting to build a sentry at the same spot 4 times even when they are fully aware that it WILL be destroyed before it can even point it's barrel at someone.

 

And I hate twats that don't whip out their melee weapons when I'm running towards them with my bat.

I love roasting people who think that just because they have out a melee weapon, I should pull out mine. :lol:

I used to rage about the FAN and Sandman until I picked up Scout recently and found out how much fun it is to use those weapons.

You get a real sense of power when you take down a Heavy with full health in 3 shots. :D

Okay, time to go all Francis style.

 

I hate...FaN, m1s, ctf, crits, fighting anyone with over 130 ping and micspam. But worst of all of my hates are

 

bodyshots they do too much damage and prevent new snipers from learning that headshots = better. they also prevent teammates from moving out of bad places because you can escape a headshot all you want with CTRL+space spam - there's no way to escape a single click from 400 feet away. I sincerely apologize for every bodyshot I make because they're often UNDESERVED KILLS that make me feel incredibly cheap. The only way I'll ever accept them is if I see a shimmering spy cloak or a disguised spy, because their hitboxes don't match the model and there's no guarantee it will be a HS. As well, when it would cost me a loss to miss a headshot - a fully ubered medic or something similar that's about to pop it. I just can't go all perfectionist when he's about to help kill a sentry and 4 people.

FYI I'm talking about the charged bodyshots, not noscopes - i use those on demomen after they've stickyjumped. I rarely have a 100% charge anyhow, unless it's obvious something's coming around the corner or I'm edging a sentry

bodyshots

I guess you've experience being in my crosshair already as Sniper. I bodyshot in Sniper wars. It's either they shoot me with 100% charge first or not. I also hit those "too fast" ones with bodyshot.

 

But I just usually do bodyshot if I know the guy's already injured. I just don't see why this is very bad.

 

Headshot = Better, but bodyshots also do help.

 

Anyway, it is opinon, and you could rant me anytime you want in game and in the forum.

 

Shalom

I myself am a huge proponent of bodyshots. They only kill five classes. Two of them are usually too difficult to headshot, the spy and the scout, so it's nice to be able to have an answer to them. Bodyshots make sniper wars quicker and easier to end, which frees up whichever sniper wins to be more credit to team. I don't like the fact that they can efficiently kill engineers, though it's so rare that I bodyshot engineers because they're usually hiding behind their sentry's hitbox or not enough of a priority for me to compromise my shots trying to target them. I do not like that they kill Medics, but you usually have to be lucky (thanks to varying damage) to actually be able to off them, and their slightly increased speed and their dodging in and out of cover make them surprisingly difficult to hit anyway. Whenever I hit a medic, it's usually a headshot anyway since I don't like the unreliability.

Scouts run in straight lines, and most bad spies walk directly behind teammates before backstabbing them. If the spy's disguised then yes you will have a trouble with HSing but that's why I mentioned that I support bodyshotting them.

Also, when scouts double jump in your scope, they're held for a brief second at the apex before their descent - that is the best time to blow their brains out.

 

Also, if you ever see the hitboxes of sentries, it's possible to HS an engineer behind one - I do it and they FREAK out. Fat construction helmets are easy targets for people that have to stand still when upgrading.

 

 

 

edit: this thread is making me depressed. not only can I not play on nomnom for a while, but I also still haven't gotten back my sniper aiming.

I once made brain salad of an engineer who hid behind his sentry gun by shooting him through the ammo belts when it pivoted to the left.

 

He was so fucking pissed, heehee.

Useless goddamn engineers. So many games we'll have an engi the whole round and I wont see a single sentry gun. I don't know what the hell they're doing, maybe they're putting them way too close to the enemy, maybe they're just idiots. The other day at the end of the round we had an engineer with 1 point. one damn point. and it wasn't a short round either. jesus, at least build a teleporter.

I am so goddamn angry right now. We finally have a weekend scrim, I can actually make it and stay the whole time. and the goddamn server fills up before it starts. what. the. fuck. I thought the whole reason we didn't originally have one on the weekends is because FEWER people could make it. the few partial weekday scrims I was able to make weren't even full. It didn't even occur to me that I'd need to show up way early just to get in. ARGH. I seriously changed a bunch of plans just to make sure I could make it. I've been waiting weeks since we even started doing scrims to participate.

 

but wait! I refresh and there's only 30 people! fuck yeah, at least I can play half! *connect* OH, IT WAS JUST A MAP CHANGE. ARGHHASKLDGHASDGHKLSDGHKLL;ASGDKHAGHKLASDGL;KSDGKLSDGLASDGKL;ASDGHKOEGWHIOWEGIOWEGNVIOEGGIOEEGIOOEGIOEGHIOEGOIDGNIOGONEGAWIOGIOEH

 

goddamnit.

 

[edit] bleh. alright, at least hopefully the immense demand will mean more weekend matches...

ENGIs If I build a sentry here do not build right next to me!! 2 stickies from an ubered demo and it's over!!

 

People who complain about an engi not having a tele up. (1) I have to set up a gun first to defend it!! or it will get destroyed (unless it's hidden) (2) if it gets destroyed by the enemy I have to rebuild and that takes time, DEAL with IT!!

 

People who complain about an engi not having any thing up. (1) when I go into my menu to build I'm a freakin sitting duck! watch my back if you're gonna complain so much!!! (2) I cant build if you take the AMMO. esp during set up. why the heck are you wasting you ammo for?!?!?

 

yeah that's about it for now.

Bolded text = ESPECIALLY THIS! I hate the fact that people keep picking up ammo because they got 2, erh, "bullets" down from their flamethrower!

 

About the tele thing. I only complain about that because I'll use the tele to help you build up the nest :3..

I dislike Demomen a great deal. To me, there seems to be something positively evil about being able to kill several enemies simultaneously from across the map with a three story building in between us.

WHERE do you keep getting these great comics?

 

Anyway...

Scouts! Do you see that heavy/demoman/pyro/medic/basically any other class walking towards the teleport in front of you? DON'T FUCKING TAKE IT. YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE IF YOU DO. At least spycheck the guy first. Let the SLOW (aka all of them) classes use the teleport before you do. THIS is what needs to go through your head first:

1. Is anyone else on my team nearby that looks like they want to take the tele?

Yes --> DON'T TAKE IT

No. --> goto 2

2. Is it a level 3 tele, near the spawn?

Yes --> Go ahead. It'll charge fast enough to let someone else use it.

No --> Go into the spawn, change to engie, and level it up to level three. Then switch back to scout and start back at 1 again.
