New update to pl_marewater with an entire ground texture and environment overhaul. Most of the changes is seen in the first point, everywhere else is still the same other than the ground texture. Changelog:* Textures changed to cp_marebowl's Legends of Equestria and TF2 mix textures I made for that, now with two new blend materials.* Lighting changed to the one from pl_borneo, with a slight brightness increase.+ Added Foliage* Gave Twilight more sandviches.- Removed Competitive Results room, (maps in the official valve competitive map rotation has the results room within the maps themselves and is hidden very far away from the main map, near a corner of the map borders)Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/zonbm0grdt9k6yy/pl_marewater_b6.bsp/file

Two possible alternative modifications to the anonchat plugin that may alleviate shitposting:>The plugin will randomly turn off at any moment in time, without warningor>Every message has a 5% probability of being non-anonymous
>>37527609>alleviate shitpostingit can't be that badany chance of failure of anonymization will result in essentially everyone acting like there wasn't anonymity
Tonight was fun, especially with anon chat being turned on halfway throughYou guys need to stop bullying Ghostmaster though, you're a pussy if you talk shit about him in anon chat but are too cowardly to do it when you're not anonymous
>>37527620They never learn
>>37527633They wont stop, because they are all retarded contrarians.Enjoy your anonchat.
15 is a manlet who takes his aggression out on us with his little baby spoon.
>>37527633I've called him a nigger in public and anonymous chat, I'm good
>>37527633I always thought Ghostmaster was a funny and cool guy so I'm confused by why everyone seems to hate him all of a sudden. Is it just a few anons?
>>37527649It's just a couple of retards who love stirring up drama emboldened by anonymity, it's not a big deal and hopefully Ghost doesn't take it personally
>>37527651>Ghost doesn't take it personallyIt has unironically partially killed my enjoyment playing in the server
>>37527651>calls people bad names>is an ignorant, unfaithful, and impervious faggot in the thread and in-game>expects people to not bash on him publicly and even more anonymously I say he's getting what he deserves
>>37527649Half payback for spamming the thread with pictures of my Scout laughing so that he experiences what it's like to be constantly in the spotlight, half just screwing around.
>>37527657Negative experiences are more easily remembered than positive ones. Don't let them get to you, just remember all the good times you have on the server with the anons who like playing with you
While I think anonchat is a cool plugin to have, judging from the way people behaved tonight I don't think it's a good idea to make it a regular thing. Maybe once a month as a special day, but turning it on every week might even be too much.
>>37527657>killed my enjoyment good, just a but more and you'll go like the dodo
>>37527657I don't think anyone genuinely hates you, don't worry too much about it. It's mostly just people messing around and going a bit too far because of anonymity.
>>37527678This. IDK what he's expecting when behaving like perfect troll bait.

>>37527690wrong flagit needs to be an Argentinian flag with a pink wojak screaming as the sun
>>37527657Be sure to take their heads in the server even harder now, I believe in you Ghost
>>37527680>I don't think anyone genuinely hates youJust watch the majority of replies in this thread and in the anon chat and you will see you're wrong.I know you're a kind anon meaning well, but it's no use, most of people here and in the server are malicious shitposters.Mind you, I'm a huge asshole too, but at least I'm honest and direct about it, unlike many people here.
On another subject, I rolled Degreaser + Flare Gun + Axtinguisher combo pyro tonight and I honestly dont know how people can play like this and actually feel good about themselves.It's so fucking broken it's completely disgusting.
>>37527702Prenerf or postnerf axtinguisher?
>>37527690I don't understand the significance but that spam did give me a hearty kek for some reason.
>>37527706Penerf.God deleting heavies and soldiers in a single blow is just...
>>37527716Youre entire persona revolves around being the most annoying and obnoxious as possible, hence why you taunt every after every kill as Pyro and ScuntYou unironically defend and want the old Reserve Shooter backYou wont stop talking about futa mares and how much you want to get fucked by themYou unironically believe Luna and NMM are different charactersBut your biggest sin is also being Argentinian
>>37526489This actually looks very nice and not like the puke green of the last one
>>37527727>if only you knew how bad things really are
>>37527727>you taunt every after every killBut it's fun.
>>37527702every class has something people could see as bullshit. do you think everyone finds demoknight fun to play against? i think feeder weapons are cancer period because you can prey on less skilled players and then be a cockroach to better players. and then when it isn't that, you have to deal with random crits from both the charge and the inherent weapons properties, and dying from the invisible melee hitbox that extends with the fucking charge momentum. consider that someone going airblast pyro specifically wants to punish players for picking a loadout they themselves dont find fun. and that said i think its the least of potential evil, heavy and mini sentry engineer are absolute controllers of fun and fuck with way more fun loadouts
>>37528037>and dying from the invisible melee hitbox that extends with the fucking charge momentumDidn't they prove that due to a bug, the hitbox reverts to normal the moment you start swinging the melee? I.e. it never actually gets used for hit detection.
>>37528044not tracking that. anecdotally i would say that is wrong because it definitely seems to extend far beyond the viewmodels
>>37528044there melee hitbox extends when charging, its a feature not a bug. you can actually get two extended swings by swinging right before you charge and then swinging while charging. the double extended hit is a bug, but the hit being extended isnt. i think
>>37527657That's sad to hear. You could always take the nuclear option and mute the offenders.>>37528060That's not true. The extended range WHEN charging never happens. The charge ends immediately when you M1 which turns off the extended range. If it sounds retarded that's because it is, it's just coded improperly.The only way to get the extended range from charging is to swing before you charge. So M1 and then immediately M2, but obviously that only lets you get an extended hit on someone right next to you.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EracjrTrQHE&t=1sAny perceived increased range when a demo charges you is due to lag. Movement is not lag compensated so when you're backpedaling from a demo the server thinks you're X units behind your current screen, and the demo hits that server "ghost".
>>37528066I can confirm this, the extender glitch only happens when swinging BEFORE charging
>>37528066>Movement is not lag compensated so when you're backpedaling from a demo the server thinks you're X units behind your current screen, and the demo hits that server "ghost".thats just as frustrating. playing against a demoknight feels like fighting a lmaobox laggy spy
>>37528142There are much worse things than fighting a nigger with a sword, anonLets not pretend that demoknight is uncounterable either, hell you can shut down them by knocking them in the air with rockets, easier than say, removing a DR spy
>>37528148i wasn't trying to say demoknight doesn't have counters, unless you are trying to say that>a pyro is uncounterablei was giving an example that i think every class has something bullshit you have to learn to deal with. literally switch to hybrid knight for like 5 minutes if pyros airblasting you is such a frustrating experience. similarly if you are trying to play troldier just equip shotgun until the pyro switches to mini engiqueer and then switch to direct hit soldier and focus him until he leaves. adapt
>>37527727>talking about futa mares and how much you want to get fucked by themTo be fair, that's based
>>37527727sounds basedsounds cringesounds basedsounds cringesounds cringetotal score: -1
>>37527727>You wont stop talking about futa mares and how much you want to get fucked by themFalse. I am loyal to my waifu, and that means in cock too>hence why you taunt every after every kill as Pyro and ScuntMostly when I know it's going to get a reaction.
>>37528329Your only sin as far as I'm concerned is playing pyro, defending pyro, and wanting to buff pyro. If not for that, I would consider you extremely based, but as it stands you're my enemy.
>>37527657Have you considered just getting good and killing them^:)
>>37528335I never understood people hating pyro despite there being a very easy way to counter him and even if he does get in range, his dps is too miserable to be a problem for any combat class.
>>37528354So pyro underpowered without the overpowered reserve shooter?
>>37528354Pyro, like any non-6s meta class, makes people seethe because they don't like fighting opponents whose MO is anything other than "run fast, shoot good"
>>37528358Pyro underpowered without the BALANCED weapons like the pre-nerf reserve shooter that turn him into the close-range damage beast he was always supposed to be.
>>37528361>close-range damage beastmeanwhile the scorch shot is an infinite-range no-falloff 100 damage cannon that will instawin any game for you if the enemy doesnt have a medic
>>37528371Scorch shot gives him the long-range damage he always should have had access to.
>>37528354I've spoken about this at length, but it boils down to the fact that pyro is miserably terrible as you say, but it's also miserably easy to play. Let's say I'm a scout on low health, and I come face to face with a soldier. If I'm good enough, I can jump like a madman and dodge every rocket, and put 2-3 meatshots in him till he dies, then run away to heal. If I die, I know I could've just played better and won. Or if the enemy soldier is good enough that they always manage to hit a well-placed rocket at me no matter how hard I try, I can only respect their skill. Exact same story if I meet a scout, or a sniper, or a demoman, or a heavy, or even a spy (discounting facestabs and similar bullshit).On the other hand, when I meet a pyro, there is a minimum of skill required from the pyro to recognise I am an enemy player, face very vaguely in my general direction, and press M1. Any pyro player who is capable of doing it will likelybe able to deal a guaranteed couple dozen damage AND leave me with afterburn - I could kill the pyro, and if there happens to not be a healthpack or medic/dispenser nearby, I might die anyway. Or if some shithead spy grabs the healthpack to heal 3hp.That's it, that's the "skill ceiling" as far as being effective is concerned. There is no difference between a pyro player with 10 hours who can do that, and a pyro player with 800 hours in the class who can also do that. I MIGHT get lucky and evade the fire particles while landing two near-perfect meatshots to kill the pyro as fast as possible, but the amount of skill required from me is incredibly disproportional to the amount of skill required from the pyro.Also just how unpleasant being on fire is, with an overlay across your screen, flinching and audible damage noises every damage tick, only adds insult to injury. I despise being on fire in this game above anything else. Facestab and headshot me from across the map all day long, just don't set me on fire.Pyro, of course, has a much higher skill ceiling than just walking into people's faces to press M1. Epic reflect airshots, reflect jumps into degreaser axtinguish gardens, flare jumps into the same, etc. - all that exists. But it doesn't change the fact that at a basic level, a pyro walking around can just delete like ~40-50 HP with zero effort and zero aim and zero skill, completely unavoidably. All pyros do this regardless of how much skill they actually have, unless they specifically challenge themselves to only go for axtinguisher combos at any cost or something (which is a very rare playstyle, most pyros will still take an opportunistic flamethrower kill on a low-health enemy in their face).No other class has this problem. Even a heavy behind a corner is easier to avoid. Even spy takes a lot more skill and effort to backstab you, especially if you're an experienced and aware player. Pyro is the only class with this problem.
>>37528378>words words words of seethingYou are the fast class. It's your responsibility not to take fights that aren't in your favor.
>>37528378Something I forgot to add - the tl;dr is that getting killed by any class other than pyro generally feels either like a mistake on your end ("darn, I missed my shots giving him an opportunity to kill me" or "darn, didn't check my back") or a show of skill from the enemy ("wow, he airshot me like that!" or "wow, how did he hit that headshot" etc.).Meanwhile dying to a pyro feels like unfortunate circumstance. "Darn, I happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time while he was in the right place at the right time. Guess I'll die because he's physically incapable of missing and I have the misfortune of being low on health at the current time."
>>37528383If I had pyro wallhax that would let me know how to avoid all pyros, that'd be great, thanks.I also don't always run shortstop, and it's not always fun running backwards for 20 seconds dealing 20 damage chipshots to stay out of flame range. Because a soldier at point blank can miss, a heavy at point blank can fail to track, but a pyro within flamethrower range will always set me on fire because it's a huge fucking inavoidable cone.
>>37528378>a pyro walking around can just delete like ~40-50 HP with zero effort and zero aim and zero skill,That's the whole point. He's an area denial class. Being able to put out deterrent damage to a large amount of people quickly and easily is his job. He's not very well suited at doing much more than that, unless if you fix him up with a degreaser/flaregun/etc. combo, but at that point, you may as well just pick soldier or scout, as you've tanked his area denial capabilities in exchange for one on one power.>"Darn, I happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time while he was in the right place at the right time.You're a scout with low health. How the hell are you running into enemy pyros? Get a medpack!
>>37528392>If I had pyro wallhax that would let me know how to avoid all pyrosStart maining spy. You'll soon acquire Pyro-sense. Also, the disproportionality in skill you talked about earlier is a retarded point: TF2 is about class counters beating skill gaps (to an extent), a lesser skilled demoman or soldier can easily take care of a more experienced engineer, for example.>>37528394>soldierSlow. Can rocket jump, but he sacrifices health>scoutWeak.Combo pyro is a walking damage powerhouse that can also support his team and tank a bit of punishment.>>37528371One shot for nearly 100 damage assuming you hit a direct shot and it bounces off. Even the shotguns provide a reliable source of (60-90)x6 damage assuming your aim is decent at close range. Scorch Shot only really shines against snipers, heavies, or in conjunction with the phlog.
>>37528371I don't see the appeal of scorch shot outside of being a nuisance to snipers, but I'm going to use it just to make you sad.
>>37528394>He's an area denial class."Area denial" is not an excuse for requiring no effort. If anything, he's an "automatic area denial class", i.e. he denies an area just by existing, no effort required.Compare the other area denial classes that are demoman and sniper. Demoman can deny chokes with traps (which, by the way, are very easy to scatter with an explosive), or just deny a wider area by carpeting (which can also be shot down or displaced). But in both cases it requires actual skill to at least know where to place the trap, when and why, some skill to aim (especially if you want to deny players by intelligently blocking off their movement, rather than just sticky spam on the ground and hope you get damage), and of course keeping an eye on when to det.Sniper requires a bit less decision-making but a LOT more mechanical skill, in clicking on tiny heads at range. A sniper that misses is completely useless, as in, he literally contributes nothing to his team.Yet I often hear people complaining about "stickyspamming" or "overpowered snipers". But those classes require EFFORT to deny an area. Pyro does not.No role can justify automatic winning. A bloody engineer takes more skill to deny an area because he actually has to choose intelligently where to build and manage his metal. And it's literally ALL his class is capable of, pyro is a generalist compared to engie.>>37528401>lso, the disproportionality in skill you talked about earlier is a retarded point: TF2 is about class counters beating skill gaps (to an extent), a lesser skilled demoman or soldier can easily take care of a more experienced engineer, for example.Those are specific counters, yes. Pyro counters "literally any class that's at less than half health", and it does so with, again, I keep repeating myself, zero effort whatsoever. A demoman or soldier still needs to actually aim to counter the engineer.Realise this. A soldier, the "splash damage shoot feet" class, is a paragon of skill compared to pyro's "I press M1 so everything in front of me is on fire now".>Scorch Shot only really shines against snipers, heavies, or in conjunction with the phlog.Scorch shot isn't the best at getting kills, but again, if the enemy doesn't have an immediate source of healing, what it does is basically instantly knock off about 30-40 HP from everyone on the enemy team. You don't even need to hit double bounces, you just press M1 vaguely in the direction enemies are gonna be coming from and now their entire team is debuffed, damaged, on fire and taking full-duration afterburn. This instantly vastly tips the scales in favour of your team in all fights. Also, all healthpacks are gonna be permanently unavailable.
>>37528414>zero effort whatsoeverPyro requires positioning and gamesense. Against decent players (which excludes you for complaining of getting killed by one of the easiest classes to counter), if you're not within your flamethrower's optimal range (or pretty damn close) by the time they see you, you're as good as dead unless you can reflect projectiles consistently. Scorch shot is boring and unsatisfying, but now that I know it pisses people off I will start using it more often.
>>37528401>Slow.While it might affect rollout, soldier's range bonus makes up for his more tanky build, and the splash he can put out compensates for his mediocre DPS from his primary (less than the scattergun and GL).>Weak.That's what his legs are for, letting him sometimes avoid damage in a 1v1 entirely, letting him go toe to toe with more enemies in rapid succession. Admittedly, he's not very good against a combo pyro, but that's not the point. What I'm trying to say is that these classes serve as better 1v1 DPS machines than combo pyro, either through more consistent damage output, or through being able to be more adaptable to a 1v1 situation (put a combo pyro up against even just two scouts, and he's starting to run short on options; double puff 'n' stings are not oft. seen).>>37528414>Pyro counters "literally any class that's at less than half health"Get off the frontlines if you're on less than half health. It might take little effort for him to down a wounded enemy, but he'll need all he can muster if he's taking on enemies with more than that, or with a medic behind them. His DPS is abysmal, remember. All you've got to do is push with more than a half crippled shotgun wielder.>instantly knock off about 30-40 HP from everyone on the enemy team.Minor annoyance and insignificant. A medic can fix that in less than five seconds (or make it not a problem at all with overheal). Also>everyone on the enemy team.Never have I seen a scorch shot hit six players at once, let alone a whole team. God forbid the enemy team have their own pyro as well to cancel afterburn.
>>37528401>One shot for nearly 100 damage assuming you hit a direct shot and it bounces off.Not true. It deals 20 damage on explosion + 80 damage afterburn. If it bounces it deals ~130 damage.And there's no punishment or disincentive to not spam it either because it reloads passively. God I hate this piece of shit.
>>37528441>It deals 20 damage on explosion + 80 damage afterburnThere are 5 quintillion ways of dealing with afterburn, it's nothing.
>>37528441Just throw your cum jar on the floor lol.

>>37528447>what is pyro on your own team
>>37528426>scorch shot has been the #1 most annoying weapon in the entire game for close to 5 years>he only now figures out people dislike ithow slow are you?
>>37528450>how slow are you?I knew it was annoying but not for the people of this server, especially scout mains.
>>37528452Consider that the scorch shot is banned in every comp league it's annoying and overpowered as fuck
>>37528430>His DPS is abysmal, remember. All you've got to do is push with more than a half crippled shotgun wielder.A shotgun/flaregun pyro who abuses weapon switches does more dps than any class in the game except demo and heavy
>>37528447>meanwhile the pyro shoots a flare every 2 seconds. please say again how easy it is to counter scorch.just dodge it
>>3752844160 afterburn. One flare with a bounce does 50 damage, with the 60 of afterburn being spread out over nearly two seconds.110 damage in two seconds. While it can easily be compounded with a quick switch back to the flamethrower to down a solo scout, but almost any other power class (or any combination thereof) can down one easy.
>>37528426>Against decent players (which excludes you for complaining of getting killed by one of the easiest classes to counterNo relation. I don't get killed by pyros often at all. I'm just complaining because the very few times I do get killed, is that many times too many.>but now that I know it pisses people off I will start using it more often.Sure if you want to not get kills - also on this server specifically there are usually enough medics that I don't actually mind it too much. Flamethrower is much worse than scorch shot when there's 1-2 medics on the other team.But if you like, you can go play casual and just do 100% scorch shot, this WILL make people mad.>>37528430>Admittedly, he's not very good against a combo pyroReally? TTK is fast for both, but if the scout can avoid getting his by a flare and doesn't stand directly in axtinguisher range, I don't think combo pyro is very effective. At least, as a scout, I never notice being killed by a combo pyro, except as a "wow he pulled that off!" moment kinda like getting backstabbed as scout.>His DPS is abysmal, remember. I have to stress over and over that I never said pyro is good.Pyro is a shit class and almost never changes the outcome of a game. The issue with pyro is that it's incredibly cheap. MOST of the time, you can "just get off the front lines" lol. But there's not always an organised frontline in pub games. Maybe on payload, sure, but not on any kind of map that isn't just a straight line from A to B - like most 5cp maps for starters, let alone more squarish maps like koth, or god forbid ctf.
>>37528459Mate it does 80 afterburn. Afterburn was buffed 4 years ago.
>>37528458>scorch>just dodgelmao good one
>>37528456So is detonator, also.>implying compfags opinions matter
>>37528472I mean, in this specific discussion it does, because it was assumed that the scorch shot is only annoying for bad players or teams with no cohesion. I only brought up comp because I'm saying that it's annoying for everyone.Don't let compfag hate live rent-free
>>37528460>dedicates paragraphs to complaining about pyros>a-a-actually I don't get killed by pyros and he's a shit class>>37528447>please say again how easy it is to counter scorchJust don't get hit
>>37528462My bad.>>37528457>shotgunStock flamethrower afterburn does 8DPS, and the shotgun does 144DPS (152DPS total), while the scattergun does 168DPS), assuming point blank range for both shotty and scattergun. And if he's using the degreaser (prenerf), that 8DPS bonus goes down to 6. Not to mention that he's slower than scout, and has a bigger hitbox. Objectively worse.>flaregun90 damage every two seconds (plus however much from afterburn and direct attack damage), and it can only be used on one target for that interval, whereas every other offensive class can switch their targets for their high DPS primaries on the fly, and need less precision than a flare. He can be good in 1v1s, but has made a big sacrifice to his AoE capability.>>37528460>but if the scout can avoid getting his by a flareAirblast stunlock can make that a challenge, but I generally agree with you there.
>>37528479masterfully crafted, but unfortunately the PL image took it just a tiny bit too far and made it relatively obvioustone it down a bit next time and you've pretty much perfected the art of bait
>>37528522>Stock flamethrower afterburn does 8DPS, and the shotgun does 144DPS (152DPS total), while the scattergun does 168DPS)that's an extremely odd way of thinking. I didn't mean it like that. I meant abusing lingering particles to effectively attack with 2 weapons at once. The way flamethrower works is it does its full damage as long as a single particle is connecting with the enemy. So you shoot at the ground/wall if the enemy is near it and switch to your secondary quickly. If done correctly you can switch back to your primary before the last particle you fired disappears.This works on soldiers too who can fire a rocket, switch to shotgun and back to rocket which bypasses the rocket's firing interval giving you more DPS than if you just held M1. Works better with reserve shooter for extra weapon switch speed.
>>37528386>Guess I'll die because he's physically incapable of missingAs someone who uses pyro situationally to advance/counter advances, I can tell you you're full of shit. I've had several unfortunate experiences where I don't even tap enemies with fire on a full blast. Especially happened often with phlog, which is why I hadn't used it for nearly a year.
>>37528550That's fair; I haven't played enough pyro for it to really click my head how he deals most of his damage.
Anyone want to play mann up mvm in an hour or so?
>>37528652Yeap. Just hope the servers actually work though.
>>37528652I can be there in about three hours but not earlier unfortunately
I finished this a while ago but don’t really like how it turned out so I was debating if I would post it at all. Figured it would be a waste to not at least post it so here, so here, got lazy toward the end as you can probably tell from the background and lighting.
>>37528778kekI like it
>place down level 2 sentry>all scouts, pyros and demoknights in a 5 mile radius spontaneously dieThere, now you can all ruin each others fun and stop complaining in the thread so much.
>>37528778goddarn that Teamplayer-chan on the wall sure is cute!why is twily sniping out on the big roof
>>37528361>BALANCED weapons like the pre-nerf reserve shooterNo.Flare Gun and Axtinguisher still does the job fine, if still better.You just want to have your crutch.
anyone who argues that the old reserve shooter was balanced is a literal retard, end of story
>>37527657I was one of the anons last night spamming, I apologize. It was all in good humor but I now realize that it wouldn't have been funny on your end. I didn't mean any of things I said in chat.
Something I always thought about combo Pyro that, while I agree on the sentiment he should be a close quarters combat powerhouse, it doesnt feel right when you can delete a Heavy in 1 or 2 hits as Pyro.As far as I know, Heavy in paper should counter Pyro, but reallistically is much more of a soft counter that heavily depends on the circumstances.
>>37529043The thing is heavy has about 400 DPS point blank - with the Tomislav, the lowest DPS of the "mainstream" miniguns. (Natasha has about 350, minigun 500.)Standard melee attack speed is about 0.8 seconds I believe, which is enough time for a Natasha to kill a fully overhealed pyro. While this does require near-perfect tracking, that's literally the worst case scenario, and pyro is slow enough that it's not impossible anyway (even discounting Natasha slowdown). A tomi against a full health but not overhealed pyro has almost 50% error margins for his tracking, or alternatively about 0.4s as free reaction time to turn around.tl;dr the heavy can very realistically stop the pyro from ever landing the second swing, as long as said heavy has >200 HP and good reactions and tracking. The pyro then basically becomes a worse spy, since if he tries to walk up in front he'll just die instantly, and if he walks up behind he'll deal about 200 damage and only have a chance to kill the heavy (banking on the heavy not being able to react fast enough) whereas a backstab would just kill the heavy outright.
>>37529043A good heavy will always defeat an Axtinguisher pyro.Against a bad heavy on the other hand the fight can go either way.
>>37529107The few heavies I killed yesterday as Pyro where pretty much because being around the corner, closed the gap and axed the heavy.So in that regard you're right you become kind of a spy.
Back then my Pyro used to be so young and innocent...The only reason why my main Pyro loadout uses Scorch Shot is because it's a strange one, I must confess
>>37529107>The thing is heavy has about 400 DPS point blank - with the Tomislav, the lowest DPS of the "mainstream" miniguns. (Natasha has about 350, minigun 500.)Due to how TF2 tickrate the tomislav's reduction actually isn't applied correctly. Tomislav only fires 13.5% slower than the minigun, not 20% like advertised.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7puuYqq_rgwvalve pls
>>37529142Even so, the stock minigun is still probably the most consistent minigun to use as a Heavy. Tomislav is good but if you're taking on long-range engagements as a Heavy you're not playing that class correctly.(But if you're playing ambush or flank Heavy, then of course the Tomislav is superior.)
This is extremely cursed.

Just saw some poor scout main get obliterated in MGE on all nine classes by 15 (yes, even medic and sniper and spy)Poor guy
>>37529888I don't understand how people can play mge for more than 15 minutes at a time. Whether you're winning or losing it's stressful and boring af.
>>37529888medic vs medic or scout vs medic?
>>37529902the guy was playing scout the whole time while 15 was going through all the classes
>>37529893I like playing MGE against 15 even if I get destroyed because it's good practice.
>>37529888Reporting in, this was painful. I don't know why but I wasn't hitting any shots today.I know I can do better but I have zero consitency, so I'd clean two-shot him one life and then empty my entire scattergun averaging 10 damage per shot the next one.>>37529893What the other guy said, against 15 you kind of expect to lose so there's not that much pressure. You try to set a "high score" but you don't expect to win.Well until I get tilted and he goes sniper and I lose anyway, kek.
>>37529934>Well until I get tilted and he goes sniper and I lose anyway, kek.He pushed my shit as regular sniper me as demoknight in MGEAt some point you stop caring about losing and just try to do your best performanceI swear 15 is a human aimbot
>>37529991if you watch his 3rd person mges as sniper he actually does look like an aimbot its insane
>>37529991You're telling me, demoknight is easy to snipe (source: I snipe you on the regular, especially when you're charging in a straight line). I was being a spastic ADHD scout.Ironically when we later did sniper v sniper I did about as good as scout v sniper. I don't know whether that should make me feel better or worse kek.
>>37530012No you dont understand how much I got wrecked15 headshooted me multiple times using tide turner, doing curve turning charges, doing zig zag charges and once headshooted me mid air doing a completely-planned trimp.On the other hand, if I recall the map was Waste, and he always was on the roof of containers, forcing me to have to go up stairs, in which I was dead meat by then.I also remenber the night in which 15 singlehandely spawncamped red spawn as blu sniper on Swiftmare, second point

>you will never be a neet burger during primetime /mlp/ tf2
>>37529151Agreeing with this, stock is definitely the best minigun for Heavy. Tomislav is in the number 2 spot (tied with the Huo-Long), because you sacrifice DPS for bonuses that only act to shore up the Heavy player's lacking skill.
>>37531716Truly a shame.
>>37531716just become a hyper neet eurofag
>>37531716We just need to start playing during eurohours, anon. We can make the server be 32/32 24/7
>>37531758>come home from work>3/32 playing>help populate>4/32 playing>30 minutes later>3/32 playingi wish it were so easy
>>37531775This, I never understand it. I know for a fact there's a semi-decent amount of euro anons.I know there are some people who "won't join unless there's 10+ players" or something, but surely it's not the case that half the euros are that stupid and just never play because it's never 10+ people during euro hours because they never play? Right?
>>37531824I would be playing but I don't have any internet at home. Should change soon but I simply can't play for now
>>37531824well the problem i imagine is that it isn't euros but asia/au. im going to say that there are three different timezons. the us and the european countries get games going but there are only like 6 asia/au fags. even on nights where we get some players, half of them are european. i cant blame that on other people, its just fucked here. it just fucking sucks
>>37531833I fucking feel you on asia time. As a euro I complain a lot but you guys can basically almost never play. Here in euroland you can often get ~3-4 players in the evening and then quite regularly above 10 players by midnight or so, which kinda sucks if you are a non-neet but nevertheless it's still an active game with 4-10 players throughout the evening, whereas you guys would need to literally coordinate all at once to even have a chance of getting a 3v3.

>>37532357What are you talking about? There used to be flood prevention. Elaborate or shut up. You don't even seem confident in your own argument.
>>37532356>I don't have admin access. I give him the plugin file and he uploads itGoogle dictionary: power>the ability or capacity to do something or act in a particular way.>the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behaviour of others or the course of events.Even if you're working as his code monkey, that means you've got power. The power to have your stuff executing in his server.
>>37532377By that logic I take it you're not a fan of the mare maps then?
>>37532379The volk in the server choose the maps.
>>37532383So you're saying that the mare map makers have power in the server, so you should dislike them as well
>>37532377technically 15 still has the ultimate power, he's basically using the vinylfag as his codemonkey to implement plugins that HE will then install in HIS serverhe has the absolute power to say "no I will not install this feature" or "change it to be like such and such"so if he takes the plugin and installs it that means the himself implicitly wishes to have it installed, with all features as-is, therefore it is ultimately 15 exercising his power in order to add flood preventiontl;dr overthrowing 15 when

Fucking useless valve, there is a bot now that ddos the server when you kick him zebree or something
>>37534405well that was fun while it lasted wapa
I'm sorry I took this server for grantedI need my TF2 fix right fucking now
>>37534217I just fucking remembered that my game is installed on a TRIM-enabled SSD. And all the "recovered" files are just filled with zeros which is why they can't open. It's all gone forever /mlp/
>>37534466maybe steam has the files backed up on the cloud still, you can probably download the cloud save
Made a pic that shows how to re-enable sprays and fix the temp folder.
Here's my temp folder. I've only played on the server this year (or at the least, 99% of my time), but haven't been on in a month or so - however just picking and choosing it looks like it's overwhelmingly sprays from the server.https://u.smutty.horse/mddxmqsdhrj.rarI have no idea as to what every spray is so there might be some stuff that's non-pony or questionable, but hey, it's something.
>>37534544basedare you the same anon who made the revert plugin pic?
>>37534548>but haven't been on in a month or sowell I better see you online when they undo the fuckup and the serb goes back up
>>37534206>>37534548thanks guys... this lessens the blow a little.>>37534544thanks
If you change the tf/addons folder name you can start the server, it'll work but that disables sourcemod.
>>37534569I've just been busy with work 'n shit. Unfortunately I work a job that doesn't give the weekends off, and is at night, so typically when the server is really rockin' I'm at work.
2/32 in spec in koth_ponyville on >>37534405
Does this disables your spray you already are using?
I'm in a casual game with b4nny rn
>>37534630Proof or didnt happen
>>37534630>playing casual>not exclusively playing on the /mlp/ serverngmi
>>37534644any other time this would be true, but it isn't right now
>>37534544Updated. The cl_playerspraydisable cvar was changed to cl_spraydisable.>>37534581Here are mine, most of it is ponyshit, all is from the server.https://u.smutty.horse/mddxtjaijxn.zip
>>37534602Come play tf2 wit hus >>37534405
I managed to recover MOST of my deleted sprays. Found out that the>tf\download\user_customfolder contains "*.dat" files that are basically just renamed vtfs. copied them all into the temp folder and renamed them in command prompt with the "ren * *.vtf" command to make them all into vtfs, and they all read properly. Not sure how the .dat folder works but it appears to have archived the vast majority of sprays (lost about 250 of them out of 2000)
>>37534362SourceMod have pushed new builds onto both the stable and dev branches. Should only be a matter of time until things get fixed on the server.
>>37534683>are you a yesbrony?nowhat did they mean by this
>>37534687>17k damage>0 healingSounds 'bout right
>>37534677Why you're specifically calling me?
>>37534729because the server needs more pop
>>37534729because he wants to fornicate with you
>>37534687b4nny literally only plays demoman in casualis it because it's the easiest to roll noobs with overpowered demoman and kritz stickybombs?also pyro is his least played classbased or cringe?
Nvm, server is not yet back up
The newest build of SourceMod is still broken – waiting for a newer build to go up.
>>37534795valve niggers and sourcemod niggers are conspiring to kill the best tf2 server
Server is back up
Here’s my raw sprays: https://u.smutty.horse/mddyczyqthd.zipI also found an old python library that was able to convert 553 sprays to pngs: https://u.smutty.horse/mddydaprtdi.zipSome animated and fade sprays worked with it too but obviously aren’t dynamic. I will probably try and get all the sprays converted to png eventually. Right now the VTFEdit CLI exe on github is broken.
>>37534850whoops, put the links in wrong order.
So because of the spray deletion TF2 now freezes for upwards of 1 minute every time you launch teh game or the map changes because its trying to delete all the fucking files.Hot damn what a great update
>>37534884why are you so obsessed with keeping records of everyone's sprays?if they're gone they're gone, no big deal
>>37534916They're a fond memory of the good times. I've already had fun looking through them all before this update.
>>37534687My fellow dashchad
>>37534160kek Catbirdfags on suicide watch
>>37534683They can also be in \tf\downloads. Not all of them work, at least in my case, but most are recoverable.
>>37534916I like browsing through them from time to time, especially when there are pony sprays in the wild.
>>37534669Yo this doesn't work. Everything is blocked from deleting to the point I couldn't even rename files that were in there, and tf2 still wiped the folder when I closed it.
>>37535001VERY based spray
>>37535020Did you click the apply button? I know it's dumb, but during my first test on singleplayer (since tf2 also downloads your own spray, so I used that to check if it deletes my own spray), I forgot to click apply.
>>37535020Worked for me, did you revoke delete permissions from every single entry?
>>37535020Works for me, but TF2 freezes up to one entire minute every time I disconnect from the server, so it isn't really a viable solution.Didn't help that I have 8 years worth of sprays that are occupying 700MB of space.
>>37535049So it tries to delete 700mb worth of files it has no permissons to delete every fucking time? Did Valve actually think people wouldn't try this, are they incompetent, or are they just punishing people for not bending over?
>>37532336>removing one of the few fun things about the pluginYes, having chat completely flooded when it goes into anon mode by one moron with a bind is fun>15 giving other people power over the server was a mistake.He didn't you utter fucking brainlet, it's a plugin we were already using. Use your head for something other than sucking fat cocks, dipshit.
>>37535067>Yes, having chat completely flooded when it goes into anon mode by one moron with a bind is fun
>>37535049Is it only for disconnecting or server changing maps too? If only for disconnects then it's not that big of a deal, unless someone needs to do the retry command due to some bug
>>37535020It works for me. Just got off the server and have 3 new sprays in my temp folder.But yes it did freeze for a solid minute when I disconnected. Genius dev work there.
MGE kind of showed me how fantastically bad I suck at individual combat. I can tell a substantial part of my problem is aim essential tremor may delay progress here and also planning on the fly. I just don't know how to consciously continue improving, since I don't notice much in specific besides being generally outplayed. Has anyone here gone through similar and found anything that helps?
>>37535175>try to delete xxxxx.vtf>permisson denied>hurr let's try the next file in the directory>repeatIs TF2 now an intern project?
>>37535067>Use your head for something other than sucking fat cocks, dipshit.Not him, but YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO
>>37535065I assume that one Valve employee that actually play the game randomly browsing through the tf2 folder, just to find out sheer amount of furry inflation porn inside, then frantically writing codes just to rectify this one issue.
>>37535203Windows file permissions are a big mess, so it's hard to blame them not properly putting in error checking for it. Also, seeing how they seem to have totally overhauled the way the networking backend works, there's probably still hope.
>>37526826holy shit he was right
>>37535194Just keep grinding MGE and play more and install mastercomfig
>>37535224>Also, seeing how they seem to have totally overhauled the way the networking backend works, there's probably still hope.Can you elaborate on this? Is it something to be happy about?
vote for next mare
>>37535194>essential tremorI feel your pain, for I have the same health issue.Sometimes when I get nerveous, angry or overly excited my hands start to shake and sometimes it has unironically ruined my charge sword swings, similar on how rookie snipers flinch their hand sideways and miss their shoots.The good thing is that booze makes the tremors go away, so to play good you must be drunk, it works for me
>>37535240It is something to be happy about. From what I've seen posted on SourceMod's forums, all network traffic from TF2 servers (incl. community servers) is now routed through Valve's own servers around the globe. This seems to help with DDoS mitigation, which has just recently started to become a huge problem for many TF2 servers in the past week.
>>37535040>>37535046>>37535049Oh, it's applied. >>37535272Vinyl!

Whoever makes the next OP, please make sure to mention in the post to re-enable sprays due to the latest update.
>>37535280So... doesn't this mean TF2 is now centralized and when Valve dies you won't even be able to play the game anymore
>>37535415More importantly - warn people about backing up their spray folder and make a smutty link to >>37534669
when DDoS of /mlp/ server?
>>37535435That was already the case, since you could only connect to gameservers and use your items if authenticated with Steam. What they changed now is that the connections themselves are now routed through their network, rather than directly going through whatever route is decided by the many ISPs sitting between your network and the server's.On a side note, you can check out their conference from a few years ago about this topic here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CQ1sxPppV4

>everyone screeching about a new updateCan you give me a quick rundown? I haven't started the game yet. Do I have to do anything specific in order not to fuck up?
>>37536377read through this >>37534669 and make the file permission changes before booting the game
>>37536377If you dont care about saving other peoples sprays on your computer dont worry about it. You will have to reenable sprays in advanced options though as they are turned off by default now.
>>37536377The update:>Deletes local caches of sprays from previous games (guides have been posted already how to fix it)>Broke literally every community server using SourceMod (99.99% of them) due to major networking changes (all server/client network traffic now goes through Valve's datacenters, like CS:GO and DotA, circumventing DDoS attacks (15's fixed this for our server).
>>37536377Taken from /v/.
>>37535394>>37536241Now that we hit limit, I would oral her entire crotch. Cock, sheath, pussy, ponut, teats, all the above. Make her fucking shiver in orgasmic bliss.
>>37536502what is this screenshot meant to convey
>>37536600I think what the player actually saw when loaded in. Could easily be wrong though.
>>37536600They added snakes to snakewater. They're retardedly high poly though, so Valve just made the map fucktons slower (albeit, they are made of map displacements, which aren't very hard for the game to render).
>>37536442>>37536419>>37536406>>37536403Thank you, this sounds pretty awful ngl. Will this kill TF2?
I have never once looked at other people's sprays in my folder, you guys are super overreacting to thisalso is it not expected that every update will break plug-ins? I mean come on guys, you're going all doompaul about something that happens whenever valve does more than update localization files
>>37536797>I have never once looked at other people's sprays in my folder, you guys are super overreacting to thisHonestly I haven't either, and I wouldn't care IF you could download sprays on valve servers.Every since they disabled this, the ONLY way to see any sprays in casual is by "preloading" them in community servers and trying to build up a large cache collection.I would unironically care a lot less if, as part of this change, they suddenly re-enabled casual sprays - since people can now turn them off, there's no more issue with streamers and whatnot. Of course they're not actually going to do that because it would be a good thing and why would they ever add anything good.
>>37536735Breaking sourcemod and disabling sprays by default don't affect valve servers; they have neither already.As for community servers, they'll bounce back. All they have to do is update.
