I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with the inevitable swarm of snipers and spies that's going to come with this update. I usually play Demoman or Medic, both of which will become pretty obsolete for a while.

I suppose I could go Pyro and set fire to everyone. Or I could just abandon all self-respect and join in the disgusting spy/sniper killfest.

great, now spies have TWO ways to get double points on kills, and along with the sapper, they'll just be generating shitloads of points :P

TF2 is apparently free to play for this weekend. That probably won't make a difference to any of you, but I've been swamped with classwork lately and not been able to justify paying for another timewaster, as awesome as it is. So until now I have been living vicariously through the TF2 blog and all of you. For the next few days, that may change. Why must I be so busy this weekend?  :-(

Me! Played for 3 hours yesterday, got absolutely nothing, had to listen to everyone else whine about getting their 5'th Kritzkreig. Really, there wasn't anything wrong with the old system. At least achievement farmers had to do something to get the new weapons; now all you have to do is park yourself in the spawn of a 24/7 2Fort server and not play the game for a few hours.

I'm more pissed about a nasty bug with Jaratre: it completely blinds you when you're running in DX 8 mode  :x :x. (And my laptop is the only PC I have that runs the game well, and it can only run it in DX 8, so it's the only way I can play the game.  :-( )

See what I did there?

Been playing for quite a few hours since the update came out, and so far I've gotten:

- KGB (already had it)
- Sandvitch (already had it)
- Force-a-Nature (already had it)
- Razorback (actually kinda useful)
- Dead Ringer (but i don't play Spy a lot D:)
- Dead Ringer (WTF Valve I said I don't play Spy a lot)

Already threw away the extra Sandvitch, will probably trade the spare KGB for a spare Ubersaw, and I already have a friend who plays Spy a lot who's willing to trade his extra Huntsman for my extra Dead Ringer. (Now we just have to wait for them to implement that feature.)

You could also look up some instructional videos (by EvilDaedalus for example).
Here's a thread listing guides. Helpful stuff especially for newcomers who just joined the madness of TF2 and might be a bit overwhelmed. I know I was, but you'll get used to grenades, rockets, bullets everywhere.

And damn I want that bow. Got Jarate and Cloak and Dagger watch so far.
Wish we could trade already - the watch is a complete waste in my incapable spy-hands.

Yeah the Cloak and Dagger is awesome. The charge on it runs down really fast when you're moving, so it takes a while to get wherever you want to go. But then you just find a nice spot, cloak forever and stab anyone silly enough to slow down near you.

I really want the Huntsman, though. I saw a Heavy with an arrow through his head stuck to a wall on Pipeline earlier and it was just... epic.

Just logged on to play for the first time today. This is... quite fun. I'm not sure if it's my laptop or the network or the servers or what, but so far all the games I've joined have been... not really laggy. But un-smooth enough to make aiming impossible. I'm sticking with the medic, since healing doesn't require much smooth motion.

Oh, SN is SirJuggles, of course.

It's closer than you'd think, particularly if you think in terms of being effective rather than merely pitching in an odd point of damage here and there. Both classes have very short windows of opportunity to work with if you expect to actually kill anyone worth bothering with rather than simply giving their medic something to do. I mean, yes, the pyro's attack technically affects a cone, so you can do a passable job of smearing scrubs and vulturing kills with one, but against a smart player (particularly soldiers and heavies) you need to roast him with everything you've got and can't really afford to leave damage potential on the table. Even then you probably should be working on your escape route the second they start turning towards you.

Please keep your mindless gamebreaking suggestions to yourself.
No one would be able to stop even a novice winbombing Demoman once they are freed of rotating the scrollwheel right after they spawn.

What I'm trying to say here is: "fuck you".


And when I get more points than I have ever gotten the very first time I play engineer, does this mean that engineers are really good, that I suck at everything else, that I was lucky, or something completely different?

If you play against a team that doesn't know how to coordinate their ubercharges, bonk'd Scouts or Spy/Pyro sap'n'grill frenzies to get rid of sentry-nests, it's just that easy.

Often only one halfway decent Demoman or a bit more decent Spy could be enough to eliminate a lone sentry and its Engineer.
So they are by no means overpowered, but getting rid of two or three sentries at one place requires some teamplay.

But all in all I think the learning curve for playing a defensive Engineer is lower than for playing the other classes.
You know where those pesky turtlers set up their sentries from playing other classes. So when you pack a wrench yourself you're most likely use those same spots for putting up your base.
