    played mostly medic last night and actually found it's really fun. Nothing quite like coming out of an über with your bonesaw flailing. :)

    Thanks for the games last night, I had a lot of fun. I had been playing TF2 A LOT lately, but Halo 3 recently came out, so I've been playing a lot of that too. I'll catch you all on there again soon.

    Yeah news has been a little slow lately :eek3: it's a twofold problem: I've been crazy busy at work (and thus unable to post newsbits from there) and then... Well, yeah... TF2.... :-/

    Joining us = practice = joining us. You can't get good by running around alone on some level. I was trying to dissuade TT of the same thing today - just join in the fragging fun and learn as you go :D It isn't a matter of life and death ;D

    We kicked some major ass tonight, guys :D

    we successfully defended our control point for over 20 minutes - thanks to our well coordinated teamwork.

    Props to Winfrey (Freec), CB Droege (our MVP!), Fatcat (newly a kickass medic), Keebler (patience!), and of course mas0n who pwned faces.

    ya I couldn't believe we held that after we had failed to defend all the other maps so miserably.:sawed:

    That last dash was pretty epic...until Hell's Organs were unleashed!:cool:

    Any room for some fresh blood? I am extremely bad at shooters....But the premise of playing medic seems very tempting. Excuse my ignorance, but how do I join the team?

    EDIT:: http://steamcommunity.com/id/EmbersRed Could anyone add me please whenever they have the time? You'll see me in game after the add running around as the medic that looks like a chicken with its head cut off.

    You can play WoW and TF2. I balance two 70s, a 60, and raiding with work, TF2, and D&D.

    Now all I have to do is figure out what to use to open and edit script files.
    I know I can open it with notepad, but will that work for writing a new file?

    No, they're called scripts, and call game functions to automate tasks. They've been used and encouraged by developers on any game that owes its existence to Quake 1 in any way.

    That is to say, Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, HL, HL2, and any game running those engines have offered this functionality.

    Is a batch file cheating in Windows?

    I've met a couple people over the years who try to tow the "It's cheating" line, and I can't see how it's anything but patently false when the functionality is programmed and encouraged by the game's developers.

    MY online/gaming name for the last 10+ years has been Zuntar. Everything everywhere, always Zuntar.

    My steam identity "link" is now THE-Zuntar. However my login name is zuntar, not Zuntar...... Bastard.

    Side note: Sledge you have the fake Zuntar as a friend, not the real one. Sorry chief!

    So I have a steam account (StainMeNow, of course). And I pre-ordered and started the download last night. It goes painfully slow, so I decide to sleep on it. I wake up, and it's only 61% and has ceased downloading.

    I hate steam :( but I did restart steam and download started up again, so we'll see where it is tonight. I want in!

    Disadvantage to the, otherwise really nice, internal team-speak option:

    Asshats who use it to have lengthy conversations that (I guess) they think the rest of the team wants to hear.

    I was on a server just now, along with Hawk, when these two chuckle-heads started going on to each other about how much better TFC is compared to TF2. A couple of times they talked over important team communication. After a couple of minutes, I asked them nicely to have their conversation off of the team channel, and the started insulting me and cursing at me. One of them even called me a 'construction worker' whatever that's supposed to mean.

    It's too bad there is no way to enforce the channel's use for actual game-play. I just quit that server because they were just too annoying to stay in the same server with... That shouldn't happen...

    OMG! Pyro's are freaking ridiculous now. They gotta fix them somehow and I have a few suggestions

    *Less Ammo
    *slower
    *Less damage
    *Shorter range
    *Shorter burn duration
    *Less health

    I think tweaking the damage is the best of those options because right now 2 sec of flame and your dead and that is just crazy. Pyro's shouldn't be able to kill faster than a heavy. Fix that and they'ed be more balanced. Right now though a **** load of Pyro's will win any game end of story.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    edited Sep 2007
    Okay, so I think the consensus is that the Pyro is now a bit too powerful. Damage is insane, they seem to walk a little faster, and their range has been increased. A team consisting of 3-5 pyros and 3 medics can scythe through basically anything and there's just no stopping them.

    Anyways, some pics:

    The night CB got nominated player of the week. See all the names? Icrontic was pwning:

    I got completely blown apart :D
