Heres what I use, to good effect

Scout: All stock

Soldier: All stock

Pyro: Flamethrower, Detonator, Homewrecker

Demoman: All stock

Heavy: All stock (substitute Tomislav and Sandvich as needed)

Engineer: All stock, or Eureka Effect when you need it, stay away from jag and sh you will crit frequently and repeatedly one shot people into fits of rage

Medic: Crusaders, Medi or Kritz as needed, ubersaw

Sniper: All stock

Spy: All stock

As you can tell, Im a fan of the stock weapons. Many of them are the best weapons in the game.

For spy, I would recommend using the L'etranger, because it's a great utility device for doing what spy should be doing (stealth and picks, not trickstabs and headshots).

For pubs, my favorite loadout is L'etranger, Conniver's Kunai (heal on backstab is great as it encourages you to get backstabs to heal) and the stock invis watch. Occasionally, I like to use the Cloak and Daggar and stock knife for games where I don't expect to get chainstabs or am trying to get a specific pick. I occasionally like to use the Big Earner as it is a nice balance between the risk of using the Kunai and still having chainstab potential.

I actually use the Red-Tape Recorder because it actually makes an impact if your sapper gets destroyed (there are usually multiple engies in pubs and pyro now has a weapon that destroys sappers). It also pisses off engineers, so it's a great meme weapon.

Don't use the Dead Ringer. It's a crutch that is absolute trash and only useful as a trendy trickstab weapon.

Black Box/Concheror is the "I'm an independent soldier who need no medic" loadout. There's three reasons people use it.

1. They really really don't want to die because "muh killstreak". (These are the reason this loadout is hated).

2. They don't trust the medic to do his job (or even be present) which is an understandable sentiment in pubs.

3. They want to be the mysterious unpredictable roamer getting ebin flank kills.

>>16678658

I came to the same realization. I mean, they might want another melee than the bottle but it really doesnt matter. Of all the classes Demo is the least handicapped when forced to use only stock.

Heavy misses his Sandvich (and those stupid iron fists thingies).

Soldier probably wants to use one of the banners.

Pyro probably wants one of his useful melees (as well as something else than a shotgun)

Medic misses his crossbow and Ubersaw/Vitasaw.

Sniper misses his piss jar.

Scout misses his jizz jar.

Spy misses his L'etranger.

Engie is without his bullshit Wrangler (as well as his bullshit'ish Rescue Ranger and/or Gunslinger).

But Demo, he's fine.

a841b4  No.16679092

>>16679006

My problem with the dead ringer is that I assume the original intent was giving clever spies a way to play dead, but the actual way the dead ringer works it's used more as a get out of jail free card by anyone from clever spies to dumbasses zergrushing your entire team because it can mitigate damage.


3d9bd0  No.16679196

>>16679092

Yeah, because forcing spy into invis with a speed boost from purposefully falling off a ledge is a completely broken mechanic, especially when they've just stabbed a heavy with the kunai and can now run to your spawn with 200+ hp, and you need mad milk/jarate/gas passer to track them since they can just outrun any pyro.

It's gotten to the point where the pompson now is crucial to dealing with spies, but you practically have to be at point blank range to hit them if they've already gotten a speed boost from a stab.

They should get rid of the dead ringer and add a live ringer that:

>when activated spawns a ringer resembling an enemy or team player

>to your own team it appears like one of the wooden targets

>to the enemy team it appears to be another player standing idle/scoped/revved

>spy remains invisible while the ringer is standing

>once destroyed the spy is exposed and the watch must recharge

>if spy decloaks it exposes the ringer as a prop and the watch's recharge time is half as long

>distance from the prop at the time it's destroyed shortens/lengthens recharge time

It would be easy enough to spot to most players, the farther the spy gets from the prop the more he is fucked if it's destroyed, and it doesn't give him any bullshit buffs. He could sneak into the enemy territory easily but if he left his ringer in a corner close to his spawn and another spy breaks it he'll be stuck decloaking unexpectedly in the middle of a swarm of enemies with no way to hide. Alternatively the ringer could be tied to the spy with a leash so that he can't just traverse the entire map away from it, but it follows him at enough of a distance so he can stand behind cover with his ringer standing out as a distraction.

That's a German site, of course they'll show up way more.

You should also remember that map is showing a couple thousand furries, while those countries have literally tens of millions of people.

TF2 lootboxes never really affected how people play the game. They're completely cosmetic, unlike other games where certain weapons have actual buffs that can only be obtained from loot boxes. I have no problem with the first (unless the cosmetics are too flashy/in-your-face), the second can fuck off and die.


f7e7f3  No.16679229

>>16679208

Ever hear the term "straw that broke the camel's back"? TF2 was pretty straight forward too, it said "If you open this box you will get X, Y or Z in Strange Quality or maaaaaaaaaaybe a chance at Ω" X,Y or Z which could be obtained in other ways, just not with a kill counter.

Then other companies took away that transparency, but that was okay since it wasn't usually too big of a gamechanger.

Then you got shit that broke games, that was necessary or as near as necessary to make any advancement, that used insidious and predatory practices to entice and exploit people into buying them, that was what pushed it over the edge.

Pyro mains for the longest time were convinced that he was underpowered, they whined and whined until Valve implemented a whole update for them.

Basically, if Pyro has any hard counters at all, he must be underpowered.

Only problem with the Wrangler is it allows engineer to build sentry nests in places they clearly were never meant to be able to get to. Arguably that's a map problem as opposed to a class problem, but lord knows Valve aren't going to try making changes to the maps in this game.

>How come is the Wrangler bullshit though?

Because you're thinking of it as a weapon instead of a tool. The wrangler and the rescue ranger are not useful because they allow the engineer to do a greater amount of damage or because they let the engineer attack in a way he otherwise couldn't, they're useful because they prevent damage or allow the engineer to cripple a push by inflating the health of his sentry.

The wrangler gives the sentry a 2/3 reduction in damage taken so long as its deployed and for a couple seconds after its put away, this means simply for pressing 2 on the keyboard the engineer can instantly give his sentry three times its normal health in exchange for making it inactive temporarily. For reference a minisentry has effectively 300 health when wrangled, while a level 3 has effectively 648 health, simply because the engineer pressed 2 on his keyboard from a safe location like behind a spawn door or half his team. The biggest threat to a well placed sentry is the short period of time you can either A) distract the sentry with something like bonk, a sapper, or a co-ordinated push, or alternatively B) an ubercharge making you invincible for a few seconds, the problem? You can make the sentry a massive damage sponge for those few seconds with no real downside, trivializing every one of these counters with the exception of the sapper. During an uber or a scout running in with bonk the shooting wouldn't do anything anyway, so being inactive really isn't a problem.

During a push like that a sentry would ordinarily go down very quickly, and with good reason, it's the primary thing that dissuades the enemy team from funneling in through a choke and taking ground most of the time, but giving it so much more health makes it far harder to destroy. In addition, the rescue ranger means the engineer doesn't even need to be anywhere close to his sentry, let alone in view of the player trying to push it so shooting the engineer is not an option in that case. Even if the sentry does go down it doesn't really matter, it served its purpose, the time and ammo waste it took you to dish out 600+ damage to destroy the sentry will already have wasted your uber or allowed the engineer's teammates to take positions to then force you out, allowing him to rebuild.

Just think about it, a soldier has 4 rockets loaded, each will do base damage on direct to a sentry, with the stock launcher that's 360 (4*90) damage. With the direct hit, that's 112*4 for 448, both need to reload just to kill the sentry, let alone kill anything else if the sentry goes down. Under ideal circumstances a sticky will do 120 damage, very likely less since it won't be right on top of the sentry, taking 6 stickies at least to destroy the sentry when wrangled. even if you're fully loaded, firing 6 stickies will take 3.6 seconds, and this is assuming the engie doesn't shoot rockets under his sentry to blast them away or shoot them with his shotgun to remove some

And all you lose for getting these massive advantages is the ability to shoot things with your pistol when you're playing a class that dishes out massive damage with a sentry and is primarily focused on keeping his buildings alive. You are made slightly more vulnerable to spies, but if your team isn't retarded and especially if they're communicating that shouldn't be a problem.


d8ca6f  No.16679636

>>16679587

New airblast takes some getting used to but it definitely has its advantages. The stronger push makes it far more effective for pushing medics into areas away from their teams, amazing for countering ubers or pockets in general. Plus the lack of vertical push means you don't have the problem of them getting caught on doorframes.

can we all agree that soldier mains are the niggers of tf2? Soldier has literal no weakness (unless you really want to count reloading as an excuse) and it can do pretty much anything without effort. Rockets are easily the easiest weapon to use. Just shoot 2 rockets to the ground and that's it. It is not OP by any means but I feel overwhelmed when I try to kill soldier. As a scout I have to use all my movements, and aim really good, with a low health. What does soldier do? Dude just spam rockets to the ground lmao. It mostly works. At least it's not as braindead as pyro. Lots of pyroniggers just use w+m1 in an unironic way and it works most of the time and they assume they are skilled and that's how the game is meant to be played.

When the engi is wrangeling you're supposed to shoot the engi. The 66% damage reduction big fat shiny shield should give it away.

The engi will always be in the area. If he is not, as you mentioned, he's not actually fucking doing anything because he can't aim. That wrangled sentry is just a 650 HP piece p scenery to safely ignore..

Or what, is he going to spin it wildly and hope for the best? Hose down an corner he knows he's aiming at without seeing? Sure, the gun's out of ammo is a few seconds and the rockets do fucking nothing alone. At which point the sentry is once again is useless hunk of HP to ignore.

Meanwhile the engi, if not inside his spawn, has no autotargeting sentry to protect him. He anyone gets to him he's toast.

In fact the ammo is a big problem. When the engi goes to pull away his 0 damage tool to use his meele weapon on the still disabled hunk of HP he has nothing. But he needs to do this to continue shooting. Helll, and if he's just standing there with the wrangler not shooting he's just begging for a backstab. Like a sniper, except you get to sap all buildings with nothing to stop you.

Any finally, a wrangled sentry is only ever engaging one enemy. It can't magically do a 140° turn and engage the next target the frame that scout died. It's suddenly very vulnerable to flanking. And as mentioned, so is the engi himself.

The difference is that tf2 was (originally) designed without lootboxes in mind, so it mostly avoided cancerous design patterns. When you design a game with lootboxes, you make all kinds of concessions in terms of the gameplay loop since it needs a designated point in time to show you lootbox crap, which reduces the amount of time you're actually playing the game.

Well the "no joke" and spoilers give away that you realise how outlandish that claim sounds.

Heavy isn't really about countering specific enemies, he's more about being an overall powerhouse in games. Also his supposed hard-counters actually work in his favour a lot of the time, considering the two go-to counters for him also happen to be both the two hardest classes in the game and the two classes that contribute most to bad team comps. In other words Heavy is a class who actually encourages his enemies to make poor class choices.

They are also not particularly reliable counters, Sniper can be a good counter but he relies on a vantage point to work, if the Heavy doesn't offer one by sticking to closed spaces, or your team just doesn't have map control (often happens if a heavy+medic combo are giving the rest of their team free reign) then you're kind of fucked.

Meanwhile Spy has possibly the worst method of being a "hard-counter" in the game:

>I know! I'll kill the heavy by entering his insta-kill range! And let's fucking pray that he and his medic aren't doing something as simple as communicating with each other because if they are I'm completely fucked!

Actually on that note I would say Spy is the worst class in the game, so much of his capability is shut down if the enemy team are communicating with each other.

I miss all the old community servers. Lost Continents, Idort's Revenge, Fortress of Fapitude, Spengeboob's, HSR, Teek. All solid community servers with great players. Time moves so fast, but I'm happy I got to experience it at least.

I used the postal pummeler (reskin of axtinguisher) for a longass time, but ultimately switched to the Back Scratcher since it gives an extra health bonus for medkits, and there's never a medic in pubs so the medibeam penalty was rarely an issue. It would actually help patient medics build uber a lot faster.

Soldier mains are usually competitive tryhards that complains every time they get killed by a specific class with a specific weapon and demands Valve to nerf the class or weapon (sometimes both) to the ground so that no other class can out best them. Like holy shit if i had a key for everytime these tryhards have other classes nerfed while Soldier remains the same and still be the broken piece of shit that pretty much anyone can use with barely any effort i could buy a dozen of unusuals.

Sounds like you only run up against new players all the time and not a skilled Soldier that pretty much bombs all the time.

But if we're talking about skilled players that doesn't really matter, any class is good in the hands of somebody who's skilled at them.

I've played against good soldiers. I already addressed that point about the medic in my previous post in case you can't read. Soldier isn't some overpowered all star that you believe. Pubstomper yes, but if you're not a drooling retard and understand terrain and splash then you can easily destroy a soldier as a scout.

>it's a lot harder when they have a medic on their dick though.

Scout versus soldier match up is entirely dependent on terrain and player skill. A soldier that bombs all the time is going to get shit on by a scout because of the scout's mobility. A soldier jumping on a scout is a retard. Not that you'd know this, but hey this is /v/ I guess.

The worst days for medic were right after that scout update that brought the Force of Nature. Everyone was playing scout, and everyone was using that with the baseball. You'd step out of spawn, get stunned, then he would blitz right through your ass and keep right on running. I think they finally nerfed it down, or at least I stopped seeing it on every scout.

>The engi will always be in the area. If he is not, as you mentioned, he's not actually fucking doing anything because he can't aim.

He doesn't need to you absolute retard, during an uber, which is primarily where the wrangler sees so much use, the sentry has nothing to shoot anyway and the knockback is likely not going to do much either, the point is allowing the sentry to survive until it has something to shoot at again when it would otherwise die.

>That wrangled sentry is just a 650 HP piece p scenery to safely ignore..

Until it re-activates again a few seconds later anyway, if you push forward you've now overextended into the enemy team and well into the sightlines of an aimbot capable of doing 128dps before accounting for the rockets, if you don't understand why this is a retarded idea there's no helping you.

>Or what, is he going to spin it wildly and hope for the best? Hose down an corner he knows he's aiming at without seeing? Sure, the gun's out of ammo is a few seconds and the rockets do fucking nothing alone. At which point the sentry is once again is useless hunk of HP to ignore.

This is how I know you have no fucking clue what you're talking about and are still thinking of the wrangler as a weapon instead of a tool. The primary function of the wrangler is the shield, not the shooting, the shooting is always secondary and situational.

>Meanwhile the engi, if not inside his spawn, has no autotargeting sentry to protect him.

But he does have several teammates who aren't just going to ignore you while you walk by to the engineer sitting behind them. The engineer's buildings are always a rally point for the team, the dispenser for health and ammo, the teleporter for mobility, and the sentry for protection, you have to expect the entire team will be gathered around the sentry and using it as a focal point for the hold, taking it down is a big step in allowing your teammates to move in, especially more fragile classes like the scout or allowing the spy to break disguises and attack without instantly getting blown up. Even if the engie was alone, he can very easily simply engage you in combat with his shotgun, distracting you until the sentry reactivates and shoots you in the back because you're so fucking retarded you just walked right up to it.

>In fact the ammo is a big problem. When the engi goes to pull away his 0 damage tool to use his meele weapon on the still disabled hunk of HP he has nothing. But he needs to do this to continue shooting.

He. Has. A. Shotgun.

What you still seem to be far too retarded to understand is you don't need to be standing around holding the wrangler to make use of it, you simply pull it out, the shield goes up, then switch back to your primary or melee to continue fighting. The shield will remain up for 3 seconds after switching away, easily allowing you to continue keeping situational awareness and make decisions about where to go, what to fight, and if you want to hold or retreat. If he has the rescue ranger instead, he still can easily fuck over your whole "rush at the aimbot and die" strategy by keeping line of sight to the sentry while remaining behind his team, you can't get to him without killing his team first, his team is covered by the sentry, and the sentry effectively can triple its health at any time simply because the engineer pressed "2" for half a second and even if you do damage it he can just shoot it from a distance to heal it right back up without ever once exposing himself.

TF2 is not a deathmatch game, you could legitimately have 100 kills during a match but still lose because you never bothered to do any of the objectives.

The closest I've had to that was when me and 5 of my friends queued up for DeGroot and somehow queued against 6 randoms in hydro, played for like 20min before they all bounced. It was fun, always kept a queue of hydro open since then, haven't had luck finding a match of it for over 3 months.

Loadouts are retarded, but some of the unlockable weapons do add some flair to the game. In my opinion, even if someone decides to remake a TF2 Classic but good, they should keep at least one unlockable weapon per class, and by that I just mean those that actually change the class' mindset without making it into an entirely different class.

For example, Kritzkrieg is a good alternative to the Uber because it trades a defensive tool for an offensive one, but the Medic still retains his support role and isn't crossbowing his way to victory or getting a quarter of uber per swing. The Flare Gun is a good tool to give an otherwise difficult class a way to deal DPS from a distance, trading firepower for the option of being annoying. The Batallion Backup makes sense for a class that is supposed to be a Pivot for the team, trading firepower for an offensive buff to all their allies (but they should remove the option to pop it early and release it later, or keep the sound cue going for as long as the Soldier blows the trumpet).

The biggest problem with TF2 loadouts is how the vast majority of the items negate the effects of dps, have gimmicky combinations that are either broken or change the class too much to respond or flat out let the class self-heal, something that the original devs specifically went out of their way to avoid because it made conflict last too long unless a Medic was involved.

On that note, cosmetics should have been a way to identify the unlockables that class was using, so that you could estimate the level of threat, for instance if the one unlockable rule is kept, I'd like it if the kritz Medic was also forced to wear the Pickhelaube, so that his shape wold be distinct from the Uber Medic.

Fired it up today after a few years of hiatus.

Looks like I still know how to surf. Always a good time cloak-and-daggering at the very end to dispose of the wrong kind of campers, maybe press some annoying button over and over, or going engineer and building shit in wacky places, like a teleporter leading out of bounds.

Never been fond of sentry nests at the ends of maps, but having one on some random ramp that can easily be avoided but might get a few shots off, or in some otherwise worthless secret area, that's going to get someone on the other team riled up to do nothing but try to take it down.

I remember there being one arena-type surf map with a secret room full of furry porn, and that was the only place on the map where it was possible to build. Always worth putting a sentry there, as butthurt will inevitably ensue.

>Not using the Escape Plan, Disciplinary Action, or at least the Meme Gardener

the absolute only single reason to use stock melee on Soldier is for aesthetics. Launch TF2 was a very handsome game, but they stole even that from us by updating the game's lighting and then updating vanilla weapon textures to make room for their epic meme skins, affecting how vanilla looks under normal conditions.

Hydro had by far the most effort put in of any of the original tf2 maps. It had a lot of passion put behind it and yet it and tc are put in the alternative catagory.

Fuck the niggers who hate hydro, it is by far the best showcase of how much effort went into tf2 and how much more balanced vanilia was. The reason why i would say hydro sucks now is because both the weapons and the playstyle of tf2 has changed drastically to the point it's no longer a balanced map.

I used to play a shitton of TF2 back in the day. Me and my girlfriend would play together and it would be glorious. Because she was a NEET she would be on there earlier before me and would farm items for me. And by farm I mean she would talk on mic and people would want to play with her because "OMG GRL" and they would just…give her stuff.

Then she'd trade it all to me, I'd smelt it down and trade it for keys (back when keys were worth 2-3 refined) and we'd do it again.

And then I'd get on voice and say "is my little brother in here pretending to be a girl to get free shit again?" just so I could see the salt. Some of the meltdowns were epic.

We had some great moments though. We'd get on a server and arrange sandman competitions on Turbine. If you got hit you allowed yourself to get killed, first team to kill all the other team (they had to stay in spawn after getting sandman'd) got to cap and then we'd go to the next round.

Good times.

How many scrap per refined was it? 6? 9? Back during that time is when I got into trading. Made about 40$ off crafting Undertale emotes when it came out

Im afraid to see what hyperinflation did to key prices. I'm betting 10-14 ref per key now. Shitters like Geel made a bot army to dominate trades and manipulate prices. He must have made hundreds of dollars per day.

Even people like TheBoogie were trading unusuals back then. I think at peak his backpack gained over 2000$ ,in the span of just one year, from trades alone

Originally it was 3 weapons for a scrap, 3 scrap for a reclaimed, and 3 reclaimed for a refined. That got patched early on though, and it was only two weapons to make a scrap. So 3x(3x2) = 18 weapons for a single refined.

Used to main Spy, not for "le epic backstabs" but because mind-fucking a team was fucking hilarious. Having them chasing shadows in their own base instead of attacking the enemy team was great fun. But of course since a Spy attracts a lot of try-hards and having more than one Spy on a team just makes things harder, I usually went Pyro as secondary because trolling with airblasts and the Backburner was fun too. But then they nerfed everything fun with the Pyro, even the puff'n'sting with the Axtinguisher, and especially the backburner, and I haven't really played in a few years so who knows what sort of whiffle bat the Pyro wields these days.

Hell even Attack/Defense and Payload, game modes built around turtling would probably benefit if there wasn't such a heavy dependency on stacking up Ubers brought about by having to deal with the multiple sentry nests that Red team builds.

I wish Valve had come up with a better way of promoting aggressive engineer play than mini-sentries. Building hauling was a good addition to Engie's kit but it's often too inflexible.

I'm not the guy who you're replying to but whatever

>He doesn't need to you absolute retard, during an uber, which is primarily where the wrangler sees so much use, the sentry has nothing to shoot anyway and the knockback is likely not going to do much either, the point is allowing the sentry to survive until it has something to shoot at again when it would otherwise die.

Dafuq? Of course the fucking engineer would be there, i mean his buildings are his lifeline, you'd think he's just going to equip his wrangler indefinitely while fucking off doing god knows what? Also holy fuck that's why i said to aim at the engineer not the sentry dumbass.

>Until it re-activates again a few seconds later anyway, if you push forward you've now overextended into the enemy team and well into the sightlines of an aimbot capable of doing 128dps before accounting for the rockets, if you don't understand why this is a retarded idea there's no helping you.

<What is the stickybomb launcher

<What is a heavy shooting at it well before it turns online

<What is snipers

<What is sappers

<What is the Direct Hit

If he deactivates the wrangler in front of a pocket, the sentry is good as dead if the engineer isn't there. You know, something that you just said above.

>This is how I know you have no fucking clue what you're talking about and are still thinking of the wrangler as a weapon instead of a tool. The primary function of the wrangler is the shield, not the shooting, the shooting is always secondary and situational.

Well you're right, but that doesn't mean that it's OP. The Wrangler merely moves the priority target status to the engineer himself. And if he dies, the whole nest goes down with him.

>But he does have several teammates who aren't just going to ignore you while you walk by to the engineer sitting behind them. The engineer's buildings are always a rally point for the team, the dispenser for health and ammo, the teleporter for mobility, and the sentry for protection, you have to expect the entire team will be gathered around the sentry and using it as a focal point for the hold, taking it down is a big step in allowing your teammates to move in, especially more fragile classes like the scout or allowing the spy to break disguises and attack without instantly getting blown up.

That's why Medics popping ubers after another is a thing, a single engy with a wranger won't hold off the entire fucking team. Wrangling engies also get a hidden debuff that makes them extra vulnerable to spies and snipers anyways. This conjectures are useless anyways since the multiple engineers are magnitudes worse than the wrangler and relies on the notion that this team will actually care about the engineer's well-being.

>He. Has. A. Shotgun.

<One class can fire faster and move faster than him

<The other can fire 4 rockets in his general direction

<Another one can fire 4 grenades and 8 stickies

<Some other guy has a flamethrower that goes through his buildings

<This fat guy can tank his sentry while also shredding his buildings at the same time

<While this guy can insta-kills the engy from afar

<The last guy can stab him and disable his sentry

Oh and if he's using RR then he pretty much gimped himself. By the way switching to your shotgun deactivates the sentry and opening it up for people to plink it to death.

>What you still seem to be far too retarded to understand is you don't need to be standing around holding the wrangler to make use of it, you simply pull it out, the shield goes up, then switch back to your primary or melee to continue fighting.

What if the sentry needs repairs then? A tank needs healers too, but if the sentry is wrangled it only repairs at a rate of ~10 HP per swing.

>If he has the rescue ranger instead, he still can easily fuck over your whole "rush at the aimbot and die" strategy by keeping line of sight to the sentry while remaining behind his team, you can't get to him without killing his team first, his team is covered by the sentry, and the sentry effectively can triple its health at any time simply because the engineer pressed "2" for half a second and even if you do damage it he can just shoot it from a distance to heal it right back up without ever once exposing himself.

<This sheer magnitude of conjecture just to make a point

Lmao i'm done with you faggot, there's no arguing with a deluded fool who thinks the engineer is a defense god (well he is, but even he can fall too). Not to mention some of your points contradicts itself too. I've played 200+ Hours as medic, demo and heavy and i've got no problem with the wrangler. If Valve wanna nerf that weapon then sure, why not ? But really, anyone that is saying that the wrangler OP is really just using the wrong mindset when dealing with this weapon.

Also gee i wonder why only now people is saying the wrangler is OP, totally not related with some Jewtuber am i right guys????

>>16684253

Some fag on Jewtube is saying that one of the spy's revolver can be repurposed into a building-killing niche. I think that's a good idea. Since many classes already have their own anti-engy weapons (nu-Loch'n'Load, Direct Hit, Battalion's Backup, Huntsman, etc) while most of the spies arsenal are centered on the players, it is nice to see it as a niche since they can make a spy into a proper threat instead of a nuisance. Also the Red Tape Recorder can be buffed by topping up it's HP to make it harder to remove by engineer or Pybros.

>Dafuq? Of course the fucking engineer would be there, i mean his buildings are his lifeline

There's no reason the engineer has to be right next to his buildings, especially not now since he can just top their health up from infinitely far away as long as he has line of sight.

>you'd think he's just going to equip his wrangler indefinitely while fucking off doing god knows what?

As I said before, all he needs to do is tap 2 when his building comes under fire to triple its HP for free, if it's getting spammed from long range? It's not shooting anything anyway. If an uber is coming in? it can't do damage anyway. No downside.

>If he deactivates the wrangler in front of a pocket, the sentry is good as dead if the engineer isn't there.

Even if it does die, it wastes 650 damage worth of your ammo loaded as well as your entire uber if you ubered onto it. That's more than enough to make a significant impact on your team's ability to push, and the engie doesn't have to do anything to do this except press 2 and walk into spawn. Now consider that he can spam rescue ranger projectiles at it to heal it while this is happening, making the numbers even worse for you even if the healing is reduced.

>he Wrangler merely moves the priority target status to the engineer himself.

Except the engineer takes less damage than the sentry at longer ranges because players are subject to damage falloff, buildings aren't. Further, there's no reason for the engineer to expose himself to your line of sight in the first place since he can sit at a distance to heal his buildings or simply abandon them and move back out of your range to rebuild while allowing his team to clean you up while you impotently attempt to chase somebody through into the enemy lines like a mouth breathing retard.

>That's why Medics popping ubers after another is a thing, a single engy with a wranger won't hold off the entire fucking team.

He doesn't have to you retard, but the fact that you need to involve several enemy teammates in this equation to explain how you deal with a single engineer and sentry all but proves my point. Also, this is also going to mean you have multiple engineers you retard, imagine a 650 HP sentry with three engineers spamming rescue ranger projectiles at it that's also covered by two other active sentries to prevent you from approaching to "lol just kill the engineer!" like you keep spouting like a retarded broken record.

>What if the sentry needs repairs then?

Nothing prevents you from repairing the sentry while the shield is active, it's slower, but that doesn't really matter when the effective health given is also three times as large since the shield is still up. Since you don't actually feel like looking up the numbers I know they're scary when you're as retarded as you are, healing is reduced by 2/3 as well as damage. This means healing 100 hp per hit normally is reduced to 33, which remains effectively 99 since the sentry has effectively tripled health. If you're curious, the attack speed of the wrench is identical to the rocket launcher, but the damage from one rocket (90) is less than the health healed by one swing of the wrench.

>Not to mention some of your points contradicts itself too.

Name one example then.

You seem to not fucking understand that the engineer is getting all these upsides in exchange for pressing 2 when his sentry gets shot at, something the HUD already tells him about, and not having a pistol, which while it isn't useless, is sure as shit less effective than being able to triple your sentry's health on demand.

>Also gee i wonder why only now people is saying the wrangler is OP

Wanna know how I can tell you've been playing the game for less than a couple years? Maybe even just a few months?

People have been complaining about the wrangler being bullshit since it was released 9 fucking years ago, this is nothing new in the slightest and unrelated to any fucking jewtube cancer you want to try to strawman everything on.

Take a look at the attached video at 2:22 if you want an example of what I'm talking about. It's from before the nerf to healing given while the shield if active, but it's still quite relevant, especially if you account for multiple engineers healing one building or building in the same area.

The biggest problem with Pyro is how he's just not fun to fight against most of the time. puff 'n sting was pure scrubbery you couldn't really counter as most classes. Same goes with the Sniper's piss jugs.

It was a near guaranteed kill most of the time, the only class that could technically survive it was the Heavy.

Non-Pyro mains probably didn't understand how frustrating it was to be instakilled constantly by the same strategy on nearly every server.

It's because Pyro requires a lot of tactics but not much raw skill outside of his flare guns. He's kind of like the opposite of a Sniper.

You can be terrible at playing games but still be a great Pyro if you're smart and plan things out. This is why so many new TF2 players excel at Pyro.

It's also why half of the veteran TF2 players think Pyro is "underpowered", they're used to classes like the Soldier and Scout which don't require a whole lot of forward planning. If you can follow a target and lead your shots, you'll be a great assault class main. If you never put much thought into anything past the next 15 seconds, you'll be a terrible Pyro.

That exact lack of planning is also why other players think Pyro is "overpowered", they run through a hallway without so much as a second thought to whether or not there might be a Pyro waiting for them. It's the people who play TF2 like it's CoD or Halo that really get rekt by Pyro the most, a good Scout can easily defeat a Pyro but a scrub Scout don't keep his distance because "muh ramp up" and get toasted because of it.

My favourite was to randomly potshot a player with the revolver in their own base and go invisible with the C&D and just watch the mayhem.

Do this enough times and they'll either never leave their own base because they're always spy-checking, or they'll eventually ignore you and keep playing. At which point of course you immediately chain-stab the entire team that's sick of your shit.

I was so fucking happy when Valve finally introduced backstab death animations so that when you did try and chain stab you didn't have bodies fly one hundred fucking feet in front of you letting the whole team know that someone had just been backstabbed behind them.

It depends, at least from what I've experienced in casual. Sometimes there's total animosity towards those who say nigger, and sometimes there's those who call out the snowflakes.

You're either playing a combat class or a support class. If you're playing a combat class you had zero fucking excuse for getting axetinguished, soldier/demoman/scout all have the mobility to escape pyro while heavy can outright tank him. If you're playing a support class then guess what, you're playing a class that's supposed to be easily killed when caught in close quarters. It's not different to getting point blank scattershot by a scout or juggle-killed by a soldier.

Well, if you're playing Sniper, it's always a good idea to use the Hitman's Heatmaker since the boost lets you repeatedly hit bots with explosive headshots partially charged, if it's a wave with a tank, and you're down a pyro you can upgrade the swing speed on the bushwhacka and use the Cleaner's Carbine to repeatedly hit the tank apart with crits.

As pyro, depending on whether or not there's a tank you'll probably want to use either Backburner or Phlog, as long as basic bots are distracted it's incredibly easy to spray crit fire all over them with the backburner, and you still have the option of airblast, however for the DPS on the tank which unfortunately doesn't have a "back" you're going to want to use the phlog, additionally, the Homewrecker/Maul can be somewhat useful when there are engineers but don't make the mistake of thinking "damage vs buildings" applies to the tank. Otherwise, you might want to use the backscratcher it'll help you help the medic build uber and health kits are pretty easy to come by.

From my year old memory as a medic main, here's Scout:

Your job is to grab cash. If you have time to spare, kill snipers and engies. But focus ont he cash. You need to have a good eye to know where people kill things.

If they do so in a weird spot or if your line got overrun, they can't blame you for missing some. You should still try to get the bonus on overruns but others can collect cash when it's obvious you're not coming.

>Soda Popper

You want the mobility on demand to survive/collect cash. Even without upgrades, it charges almost instantly

>Mad Milk

Pistol won't do shit, Bonk can collect cash but isn't needed, Cola is suicide for no gain as you're not supposed to do damage, Milk slows (upgrade, get it) and heals everyone while the Medic is busy sucking off the Heavy shielding

>Fan O'War

Tag every single big mob with it that doesn't have piss on it. Don't bother with small ones, those you just shoot. Doesn't work on tanks.

UPGRADES

>Focus on maxing the defense upgrades. Start with Blast and Bullet, max out crit by wave 3, get jump height and speed as needed but they should not be. Ignore HP regen, use milk, dispenser or preferably a good medic that overcharges you when you visit him. Fire resist depends on you and the map.

>Get slowing Milk in due time, when you feel survival is granted.

Very rarely is stock not the optimal choice. Also, the TF2 system is designed to slowly introduce players to new unlockeable weapons, rather than just dropping the hundreds of unlockeables on them.

>Very rarely is stock not the optimal choice.

most classes have at least one weapon that is basically a straight upgrade. its usually a melee. Basically 1/3 of all weapon slots across all classes (except demoman) have some form of improvement available.

some classes (like soldier) dont have an individual best option, but there's really no reason to use stock-melee at all when the Escape Plan, Disciplinary Action, and even Meme Gardener exist.

At the very least, with so many weapons now there's bound to be one for every class (except demoman (maybe)) that you personally would prefer.

And yet they're still expected to fight against these weapons.

Also not only are there plenty of slots with upgrades or sidegrades available, there are also a lot of unlockables which are ideal for players new to the class. So it doesn't even make sense to lock them out of using them.

>>cosmetic shit only, anything gameplay-related is available to all players at the start

Nigger-tier response, anyone with a brain would know that visuals ARE important and need to convey information to the play in an easy, non-clashing way.

Overwatch fails horribly in this regard, as hero/skins/wtf ever tend to both not convey what the class is about in a quick manor, and they aren't consistent. The only consistent part of overwatch is it's HUD which is where most information is given to the player, everything else is a over saturated eye-sore.

Contrast to TF2, which has very recognizable classes that you can tell mostly what they are about just from a quick glance, and can plan out the way you approach the situation easily with little hassle, there isn't any eye-sore because unlike Overwatch, TF2 uses mostly low contrast warm and cool colours for it's classes, ranging from an industrial look to a wooden look.

The style of tf2 doesn't give detail to things players don't need to look at, this is similar to how a painter would use "negative space" to trick the viewer's eyes into look where they want.

Overwatch gives details to minor and pointless shit that doesn't need it. (this is partly also why i hate the fucking jungle maps)

To give an example, back when it first came out and i played overwatch, there was this map that had a little ledge next to the enemy spawn room. Now, being someone who has played lots of arena shooters i assumed i would be able to gain a height advantage to splash damage my opponents from it. Well, i couldn't.. why? BECAUSE THEY PUT A FUCKING INVISIBLE WALL THERE.

Yep, no clear "hey you can't go here" or atleast removing detail so i wouldn't try like how tf2 does.. They just straight up put a fuck you invisible wall there.

On the subject of Skins, they detract heavily from the readability of a situation, tf2 also has this problem with hats but tf2 also has hammar and heavy mod support coming from it being a source game overwatch doesn't.

The big thing though is, Hat's will still let you see what the original class was because the silhouette is mostly the same because it's basically just a layer ontop of the original.

Overwatch's skins have no rules it's not a layer you put ontop of a pre-existing model, it is a whole model of it's own so they can do anything and this can break EVERYTHING! although it's not like overwatch's characters have that recognizable of a silhouette anyway

Extremely.

Vaccinator outclasses everything when used right, practically any class can survive a counter being kritz'd if they've got the right resistance, or if the medic just hits all resists.

I got royally fucked by a heavy/medic with explosion resistance while I was kritz'd, they outlasted my medic's charge and they took barely any damage from all crocket meatshots. They likely would not survive if they were using quickfix, but the resistance buffs on vacc is fucking ridiculous.

It's because there is a somewhat fair tradeoff to it. With the stock and any other medigun you don't have to be as aware to what is going on around you.

It's the skill level that balances off this weapon, that and even with all the powerful resistences.. 9/10 times the person you pop them on won't push up because they don't understand the resistences they just got.


d8ca6f  No.16691482

>>16689139

Visuals are important, that doesn't mean that shit that impacts gameplay isn't worse.

If you're gonna go that route though you really shouldn't overlook how badly Valve has fucked the game visually. The fact you can still recognise what class you're up against despite their cosmetics is just about the only positive thing that can be said. Meanwhile it's possible to wear cosmetics that distort color scheme so much that the color that's meant to denote the team they're on isn't even the dominant color of the character model anymore. Then there are weapon skins that completely fuck the readability of the weapon being used. And of course they would allow orange to be a weapon skin when they had established orange to be the color of weapons that do no damage. Overwatch is definitely pushing a slippery slope there, but at the moment the different character's are distinguished enough that you can recognise them despite their skins.

>>16690847

>Why did VALVe add this weapon to the game?

Valve clearly wanted a medigun in the game which had Medic do more than hold M1 and they went the worst way about it.

>>16690847

Why is it better than the base medigun? the main difference is the uber bar split in 4 parts, the vaccinator can be easily countered by people who know how to play, even if you pop the 2 most common incoming damage types a surprise phog/backburner can fuck you up while ubering, after poping the 3 damage types you still can get killed by mele, the mother fucking mele that has gets 50% random crit chance

The explosive resistant bubble is easily countered by headshots, sneaky Heavy (+random crits), even a random crit from a Scout can fuck you up (or lvl2 sentry if the players are not playing attention) and bulled resistant bubbles are countered by any kind of random crit explosive, the stock medigun is still better

Metafaggotry and ways to vary it. I'll give some advice that is useful when playing regular MvM outside of farmville.

>scout

Soda Popper; Mad Milk; Fan-o-War. Feel free to swap your primary for whatever is comfortable (or niche, like pushing bots with Shortstop or Force-a-Nature). In a bad team, you'll need to max out your resistances and movespeed and balance getting heals from money and your milk (with upgraded recharge) to tank and aggro bots. In a good team, you can skip on higher tiers of resistances and go for more damage.

>soldier

Beggar's Bazooka; Buff Banner; Escape Plan. Primary is controversial, since any launcher apart from shit like Liberty Launcher can do. Banner depends on the situation. In most cases, Buff is good because bots die faster. Batallion's is good against crits (but buying resistances is better) and excessive damage, Conch is good for when you have no Medic. Launchers depend on your team comp as well. No Medic? Black Box. No Engineer/he's retarded? Cow Mangler. Don't want to destroy your mouse by abusing the tap reload on the Beggar's? Stock. Nobody to buff and the mission seems easy enough? Air Strike with/without parachute.

>pyro

Adaptable; Gas Passer; Powerjack. Secondary breaks MvM completely and you can carry almost any team with it. It's like a portable Demo. If you find that it saps your fun, equip anything else (usually Scorch Shot/Jetpack). Primary depends. Tanks or no need for airblast? Phlog. Mild airblast and the best way to charge the gas passer? Dragon's Fury. If you know how to navigate bot AI, Backburner's good too. Anything else is mostly for airblast and bomb pushing if your team happens to be struggling.

>demo

Booties; Scottish Resistance; Skullcutter. Bots are predictable, so the damage buff and more stickies is useful. You can swap melee to Eyelander for more health and speed, just make sure not to die too much. Place stickies more conservatively and a bit further back, so you have enough time before bots walk over them. Or just swap to stock stickies. Alternatives are full Demoknight (only gets good with more money), hybrid or just equipping Loose Cannon for utility pushing.

>sniper

Hitman's Heatmaker; Jarate; Stock. Metafaggotry assumes that you're not the one killing tanks. Jarate for giants or slowing down a stray giant scout, Heatmaker lets you be an AoE cleanup crew and damage dealer. Adjust Explosive Headshot to the amount of bots/medics spawning, there's usually no need for tier 3 on a map with tight paths. Swap to Bazaar Bargain for faster charge time without spending money, letting you kill giants faster. Cleaner's Carbine (unupgraded) and Bushwacka (attack speed as much as possible) is used to kill tanks.

>spy

Diamondback; Dead Ringer; Kunai. Kunai lets you get away with shit you aren't supposed to, useful since they nerfed the DR. Stock is an option when you can't seem to get in stabs and instead die to stray damage because of the base 70HP, but you need at least some HP regen then. Don't skip out on resistances and movespeed, because you're most likely the one collecting money. Diamondback is just for utility like picking off snipers/emptying it at a tank or giant. You could equip L'Etranger to get cloak back from bots, but that just means you're in combat longer and may miss money. Try to learn how much time it takes for the bots to reset their behavior towards you, as sometimes you get bullshit like redisguising, coming out back from a corner and bots randomly shoot in your direction. Same bullshit also makes you a great aggro puller, even if you're just pelting a bot with pistol shots.

I think the biggest issue with the Vacc is how fast you can use a 25% charge and how it negates nearly all damage+crits while in duration for all types except melee if you spam R. It's way, way more versatile than stock could ever be, faster than Kritz could ever hope while countering it and it only falters when the medic is a bumbling retard that can't react to the situation fast enough or his teammates are overextending to the point that a sentry nest, a pyro and a demoman are shooting at them at the same time.

It sure isn't full 99% foolproof invulnerability, but the amount of resist+regen for actually countering an entire set of classes, depending on the type, and how frequently you can actually make people have these resistances, might as well spell gameover for the enemy team if they don't work together.

In pubs, it's OP.

In 6s, it's banned.

In highlander, you have to counter with über if you want to even have a chance at beating it. God help you if you don't cause they can steamroll with it quickly on CP and Payload easily without Spy picks (and forget about sniper picks because he can just use a charge to become invuln to headshots), even more so than with Kritz.
