    We needed another gaming thread, I know...

    Making this to make notice of the fact that TF2 is F2P on Steam all week. If you haven't played it and you like shooters, try it. Hell, try it even if you don't like shooters. It's not your typical FPS.

    Anyway, am I the only one around here who plays regularly? Been trying to find a nice community to join where I know some of the people on it. I generally play on the same couple of servers, but heck if I know anyone on them.

    What classes do you play? Favorite maps?

    I'm a Pyro mainly, Medic and Engy second, and Spy when I feel like being a shitty asset to my team. Generally enjoy playing 2Fort and Dustbowl.

    Oh yeah, TF2 unleashes the nerd in me. icon_redface.gif

    It's a fun game for everyone. I have met quite a few gays and gals on it. As for my preferred class, I'm pretty much a sniper whore and you would mostly see me on Goldrush servers.

    I don't know what it is about TF2 but it's the only shooter I suck at. I totally own ass at Global Agenda/The killing floor/Monday Night Combat/Left 4 Dead though.

    GET OUT OF HERE NOW. Damn snipers, can't stand them. Mostly because I'm a shitty sniper and can't return to fun of killing someone from miles away.

    And the fact that every sniper I come across taunts me after a headshot. Like really? I don't taunt after axtinguish, maybe I should start, lol.

    But yeah, love the gold rush maps as well, I generally play on Gravity Bong for 2Fort and F7 Lans for Gold rush/CP maps. Big fan of the Steel map.

    I love support classes so naturally I'm a medic. I love hiding around corners and other weird spots to keep my team mates alive.

    Always Pyro or Medic, and when the odd moment hits I play Soldier. Fuck snipers >icon_sad.gif

    Though this video pretty much ruined the game for me because now every time I get sniped or pistol sniped, I have a sinking feeling this is to blame:

    Haha omg I sooooo miss regular TF, and I'd be a medic running around poisoning the other team (talk about rage inducing) and flashbombing myself into hidden spaces and shooting people running in to get my flag. Ah, the good old days!

    Every PC online game has aimbotters and hackers. You're not safe anywhere. TF2 actually has one of the best communities I have seen. I have the game since 2007 and never encountered any abuser. The best way to avoid them is by playing on good servers that are monitored by admins at all times. As a veteran sniper myself, I can assure you it's all about skills. TF2's sniping mechanics are very basic compared to tough competitive games like Battlefield. Many of those snipers come from such games (including myself), therefore they seem to stand out from the rest. Don't worry, we will be gone once Battlefield 3 arrives. icon_razz.gif

    I always play spy when entering a game. The only problem is that within 10 minutes of joining the game, the opposing team gets more pyros all of a sudden and spy checks the fuck out of everyone. icon_mad.gif I also like playing medic.

    Love TF2, haven't had much time to play recently icon_cry.gif

    Scout or Engineer for me, either playing incredibly offensive with the scout just rushing the flag/cap/etc or extremely defensive with the Engineer.

    I was pretty shocked with how low my Engie playtime is. It's one of my favorite classes but I rarely play it. I think it's just that reason, outside of control point and payload maps on the blue side, offensive Engy doesn't happen too often, and I really prefer to be offensive. Turtling is incredibly dull, but on some maps it's just required (2fort, Dustbowl).

    BTW, as much as I miss the Flare's crits, I love the Detonator, mostly use it just for the sound effect. PEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

    I've played it a bit on the new F2P, loving it for the odd jump in match but just got a new PC so i've got tonnes of games to catch up on as well icon_razz.gif

    Loving the Spy and the Sniper so far, nothing like infiltrating behind enemy lines and stabbing 2-3 people in the back before they know what's happening icon_biggrin.gif
