1) How are any of those things different from getting hit in the face by an AWP the instant you step your toe around a corner?

2) This really is an insight into the pretension of the self-proclaimed pro gamer. "OMFGBBQ that nubcaek just got a lucky killlll with dat lucky crit lcuk rocket!!!1"

Crap man, so the noob got one kill. It probably made his day. I guess that's some sort of gamer crime against humanity.

I like...(d) it. The hats, and all that is just to much for me. And the Demo updated killed it, that was an annoyance of a class long before they started charging me with a sword.

Any answer but "nothing" is wrong I think.

This sums up what I hate about competitive players.

lol Natascha negates that charge entirely. I've frustrated many a Targe-wierdling demoman with that thing. They end up stalling about 15-20 feet away, and they can't strafe when charging, so they just stand there and get slaughtered. It's hilarious. The hats don't bother me. I simply don't use any of them.

[edit] Never played TF2, but L4D is similar in this regard.
L4D is just a ripoff from an alraedy excisting mod on css in the first place imo.
Even garry's mod has a mod samiliar to L4d (where you can play as different type of zombies)

As for TF2. I had a trial key once and when I joined a server I had no idea what i was doing.

I guess if i could try it again and have more time to figure some things out I could judge about it more. But as of now i'm not really temped to buy it anyway.

I just don't understand how anyone can dislike the game because of the class updates and hats. It just absolutely boggles me how new weapons that lead to different and more varied, yet still balanced, gameplay mechanics and HATS can cause people to dislike it. Honestly? Hats? A purely cosmetic change contributes to your dislike? /facepalm

I tend to stick with Heavy but occasionally change to Medic, Soldier or Demo. I tend to stay away from the Scout.
Add me on steam if you want: pelirrojo173. I'll watch you and see what's going wrong. Soldier and demo are the easiest classes to score a few kills with (not saying they're "easy", but any noob should be able to go soldier or demo and kill a few people pretty easily). They are also pretty resistant to high ping, since their weapons do splash damage.

Also, you should turn on the option to show damage above people's heads when you hit them. That might shed some light on this.

I have a feeling that what's happening (with soldier and demo) is that you're shooting relatively close to people and saying "hey I hit him!", but not hitting close enough to do serious damage.

Although, if you enjoy heavy, the recent buff made him pretty viable... Plus he has by far the best saying IMO

...but if you only play 32-man gold rush then you are correct... those servers are just total spamfests. The game wasn't designed for such large teams.
