Here are a few settings you should change…

Here are a few settings you should change to improve your game of Team Fortress 2.

Also while we’re here, some spy advice, a config to use if your machine is a bit old and some scripts that might help you but I haven’t tried any of ’em myself so YMMV.

Kinda regretting not taking an offer to get weapons in the Reddit armory now. When I had the chance there were a handful of noobs, now there’s all of you lot too! 🙂

How do you know you’re on a TF2…

How do you know you’re on a TF2 team full of noobs? Half of them are snipers, nobody is a medic, and players run past the control point without taking it! ARGH!

Thanks DRMB James for joining me, we made a noticeable difference!

Respect the PC Gamers


(via)

It’s a well known fact that console gamers are scrubs, they’re abusive and unhelpful and rude. They’ll cheat and hack their consoles given half a chance. Isn’t that right?

PC gamers on the other hand are enthusiastic and helpful. They’re mature and civil about their communities. They delight in the strategy and skill required to use a mouse and keyboard. They never call anyone names and accept games as they are, because nobody ever does anything underhand. Isn’t that right?

Oh yes. Gamers everywhere are all the same. No matter what platform they use.

It’s quite impressive how much support Valve give Team Fortress 2. It’s getting a a bit long in the tooth but it continues to get free updates.

This week you can try the game for free through Steam plus there is apparently going to be a big update today, following on the heels of new weapons for the soldier, scout and demoman. Oh, there’s a secret update for the Pyro too.

Now I’m left wondering how do I pick up these weapons? Do they magically appear on the map when playing or are they leveling upgrades? (via)

What makes me a good Demoman?

This is one of the entries for the Team Fortress 2 Saxxy Awards. If you have TF2 you can vote for the best videos in each category here. I can’t wait to watch them later!

This is certainly a step up from many of the TF2 videos I’ve watched which are simply quick replays uploaded directly from the game with minimal editing. They’re not all bad of course, that’s what I did for the 2 TF2 videos I uploaded, but after watching what the Battlefield community do with BfBC2 videos they can’t compete. (via)

TF2: Heavy vs Spy

Just a short clip of me as a brazen spy flanking a hulking heavy, iTimoleagueDuck who was ripping my team apart.

We had some great games tonight though both of us are still noobs at it. We still managed to score highly on the leaderboards and I refuse to credit the fact we were playing with a few bots for that achievement. We rocked! (As much as any noobs will!)

The TF2 Community in a Nutshell

Every community has a defining characteristic. This is from this post on the TF2 sub-reddit. Sorry, I should say the very busy TF2 sub-reddit.

Methinks the big publishers could learn a lot from what Valve did with TF2. It’s not just Reddit either. My last video, a Team Fortress one has already hit 271 views, easily beating the views on the rest of my videos. Impressive.
