    DigiKid is playing with us tonight. I'm saying this before hand, I will be stacking on the same team as her, focusing more on helping her. Family Stacking?

    btw, she was awesome, only advice i can give: move around... i.e.: don't stand still.... i was sniper for a while i noticed it.

    @RahnalH102 there are lots of pics of you on our Facebook photos page.

    Anybody who isn't tagged, I invite you to tag yourself in those photos.

    Probably need to "Like" the main page, then the option should be on the bottom right side when viewing the picture.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    It doesn't show up for me :( I have fullscreen, download, and report.
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    Family stacking is frowned upon in most countries.

    Also, I didn't see your kid on last night. I assume she jumped ship pretty early? I don't believe in censoring the world for anyone, but I'd at least make an effort to not be too horrid on the mic.

    Also, I never realized how wicked I look with that mask and the Scrap Pack. Thanks for capping that :D
    I decided last night that I'd really like to get my hands on a strange Medigun (the standard healy gun) cause I really do use it more than 50% of the time I'm in game. Maybe a strange Blutslaughter, too. Anyone have any suggestions?


    Lynx got Ily and I dead a few times with this...

    That Rarity...so fabulous. Jeez I got killed four times looking at that, once however I managed to kill 4 of the interlopers before they got me.

    Whoops, it doesn't for me either.

    I was too busy killing people.. So that WAS the most amazing spray was it?
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    There aren't usually many Rarity sprays, and it's a cute one. I had to get a screen-cap. :D

    She wrecked pretty good as a soli:

    But yeah, I am slowly introducing the classes to her. Once she understands what the sniper and spy do, she should hopefully click on how to better avoid them ;-) She did say a few times "I died and I didn't even see anyone!"

    I explained to her how to "push" the cart on Goldrush and she did pretty good at it. Her Stats show she had an almost 2 minute life and one with 3 kills. /me puffs proud gaming Dad chest.
    What was Digikid's name in-game? Did I miss her? Awww!
    She was on a bit early from about 6:30 to 7:30ish I think. She was on as DigiKid most of the time. I tagged her up once the server filled. Her computer had a couple issues so she was in and out and that frustrated her a bit. I plan to get her a headset soon, once we can communicate better (instead of yelling through the house) she will have even more fun.

    I left at about 8 and I don't remember seeing you or Prime. Sounds like we were on a bit early and you guys came on a bit later. Maybe next time.

    Medi Gun is currently going for about 2.66-3 refined. Blutslaughter is pretty cheap, about 1-2 reclaimed. Let me know if you want any help hunting them down.

    Sweet, I'll mess around a bit and see if I can make that with what I've got. I'd love help as I've never really delved into this part of the game before :D

    1st rule if I am going to help: Don't smelt anything you only have one of. I would rather chip in some metal to help and have you keep your weapons then have you sacrifice any to get something else. I'll take a look at your backpack and we'll see what we can make happen.

    yeah even if it's a weapon you don't use. I always keep at least one of each, and try to get one of all of them!

    Yea, you have a bunch of spares. If you are cool with 2-3 refined for the two then I can pick them up and trade ya or if you would rather get your feet wet I can point you in very specific directions on how to find someone to trade with.

    Gotta Catch 'Em All! I don't smelt unique or vintage stuff.

    Digi, it would be so fantastic to just trade with you for them. Is there a way to be more efficient in smelting by choosing certain things over others?

    --edit--

    Okay, I have three refined awaiting further instruction :D

    Cool, I'll grab them soon and let you know.

    Re efficiency... if you mean end result is more, no. A wep's a wep, two weps are a scap. Some newer weps can be sold for a scrap but that takes work. Time wise there is scrap banking bots (allowing you to scrap two weps of different classes) but I have no experience with them. I usually just put my spares on my first page in pairs based on class (as necessary to smelt into scrap). then I bring up the crafting module and craft away. I always always always use the "View entire backpack" option so I know I am specifically selecting the exact item I want to craft. I wish they would make an option to make that default but that is a whole 'nother subject.

    Looks like you have used the in game sort by class at least one time in the past. If you don't plan on smelting/trading on a regular basis, that is a great option to organize. You can then see everything you have easily. There is also an option in the backpack somewhere to show quality colors, vintage = blue, genuine = green, unique = yellow, ect. I like this as it helps me NOT smelt my vintage or genuines.

    You may or may not know that you have some pretty nice vintages in there. Namely the off level ones. If your vintage has a different level than the default level, it is worth at least a refined. That goes up by weapon and specific level (0, 1, 69 and 100 being the big boys).

    Now that I have typed this all out, I see you have already been doin' some work :-P

    -Digi
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    I didn't realize there were differences to my vintages. I know that back a while ago I smelted all my vintage dupes, but I'm leaving those in there. I smelt things that I already have a vintage version of, though.

    I'd never really thought about it before, but it takes a crapton of items to make those refined. People who craft lots of hats must log ludicrous hours. No negativity implied, but wow. In one crafted hat there's 54 items represented.

    Thanks for the tips, and for helping me out with this. I'd never really thought hard about doing "strange" things cause I was pretty sure the only way to get one was to open a box, and that takes irl $. I'm looking forward to having a deadly medigun XD And I'm getting decent enough with my syringe guns that the Blutslaughter might actually get some levels, too. Do they gain xp based on damage or kills?

    Dat Level 99 Sandman. At least he survived :-P

    Your 2nd paragraph there is why it is rare that anyone crafts random hats. Most hats can be traded for between 1 and 3 refined, and you are getting the exact hat you are looking for. To add on to your point, to do a class specific hat takes yet another refined and a class token adding another 21 weps for a total of 75 weapons. To put that in perspective I get between 8-12 wep drops a week and that is capped. Takes about 11-12 hours to get to the cap, playing past that might net you another crate but no more weps until next Wed night (when the cap resets).

    Most strange items count kills. TBH I would have to look up how the medigun counts, maybe assists while healing. Things like Jarate and Mad Milk are based on players 'covered'. It's different per weapon but I don't think any of them are based off of damage.

    I can confirm it took me ages to make my first hat and once I finally did it, I did not really like it. But I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
  • midgamidga "There's so much hot dog in Rome" ~digi (> ^.(> O_o)> Icrontian
    I checked the wiki, apparently it counts Ubers. I also saw that there's a Strange Festive variant? How much more do people ask for one of those?

    Short answer: Lets boil the answer to that down to "A lot".

    Long answer: You may remember the Naughty and Nice crates around Christmas. The Naughty crates had Festive weapons in them. When opened there was a small percentage of the festive weapons that would come up strange. I opened about 20 and got one strange festive (wrench). They are rare and there is demand so prices are pretty high. Quick search shows a couple guys asking 25-27 keys for the medigun (Mannconomy equivalent of about $35).
