Official Team Fortress 2 Game Nights (PC)

I like duels. I only challenge Goodjers and I try not to challenge someone who's either doing well against me or I'm doing well against, although that can happen just because I challenge random people without really paying attention.

So feel free to duel me. I have a few left I need to use up too.

On the plus side, we did have that all heavy offense on Badwater, and apparently some pubbie was trying to teach Mex how to play demo better. Because, you know, he's a noob and all that :D

That was hilarious.

So is there a game tonight? Do we need to try to get a regular game going on the private?

(Also, what's the post-colon IP for the private? 27015 or 27016?)

Two tourney games. But probably be one after we break at 10pm EST

I think if you just don't include the port number and click the "find games at this address" button it'll sort that out automatically.

At this point, I don't even bother entering in the information. There's enough people floating around on my friendslist that I just join that game.

This is how smart and attractive people do it.

For those of us that are less smart or attractive, I used 27015 when I added the server and that worked for me.

I'm about to give up on duels period. Results of my last dueling minigame:

*Draw
*Draw
*Opponent spends more than half the round sniping from spawn - loss
*Draw

So I'm 0-1-3 at this point. It would be nice to get one win out of this stupid thing.

*Challenge pubby, he refuses
*Challenge pubby, he refuses
*Get fed up, what the hell, I'll challenge Mex: lose badly

Stupid dueling minigame. Bleh.

Feel free to challenge me. I've never won one either.

I too, have never won a duel.

It looks like I won't be able to play for the next couple of days as I prepare the second chapter of my thesis. Your heads can rest easy. For now...

You should just shoot him in the head. That's what I do.

He should name his axe the Fxtinguisher

You, sir, have no idea of the sniper skill I posess. I would not want to unleash that terror upon the server.

Spoiler:

The terror is how useless my sniping actually is to my own team.

Actually, I was the one that suggested it. I fully realize that my username is a bit on the difficult side to pronounce (if only because it's origin is me randomly tapping the keyboard over 10 years ago :P), so I try to make it easier for people if I can.

I like to just refer to him as Fx as he burns my cloaked body to the ground, screaming and ashamed.

I'm in Homer's camp. The other night I took like 5 shots in a row as a sniper and didn't hit anything. Not even a body shot. Anyone speccing me would probably burst into laughter. Or maybe tears.

EDIT: Why is it I can consistently lead moving targets as a soldier, where there's an actual projectile involved, but not as a sniper? So weird.

I call him "damn easy button."

I will always call him "fix-any."

Or whatever curse words come to mind.

On dueling, I don't like them. Mostly because it actually makes me pay attention to who I am killing, which I usually don't do. The only time I notice someone is kicking my ass is when they start dominating me, but having the constant reminder usually ends up with me changing how I play, and getting more frustrated.

That having been said, I have gotten two duel games to drop recently, and want to use them. Perhaps if I duel more I will stop getting bent out of shape by them.

Back when I played a lot of L4D, I called him Feh-zee-ni. I think I enjoyed saying it more than he enjoyed hearing it.

So along the lines of sniping, I feel like there's a weird lag to my computer. It might just be showing it's age (it was a mid line like 3 years ago), but I can't really aim at the target directly. For some reason it needs to lead the target a bit. Could be related to the hitbox/lag detection. I don't feel it with other weapons, except the shortstop. Maybe because I haven't see the shortstops default reticule, but it always feels like I miss even if my cursor is over the target.

Also Fxeni, I say "ph-en-ee". The 'x' is silent. But I'd be down for calling him fx (eph-ecks).

You think that's bad?

I've never won a duel, and I lost one to Fedora.

For some stupid reason, I decided to play around with the sniper rifle last night. I had multiple occasions where my little pink dot was sitting directly on someone non-moving head and it didn't hit. Really frustrating. I think I'll stick with the huntsman.

I pronounce his name 'fex-any'

I'm not a big fan of dueling for the same reason that I don't tend to pay much attention to who I'm fighting. Well, okay, that's not entirely true--I make "fight or flight" decisions based on who is shooting at me.

I've done two duels thus far. One where I was challenged by some random pubby after I had just joined and had no points at the end of a round. The next was when Cheeba was dominating me so I challenged him. He switched from spy to heavy while I switched from heavy to pyro. He won. I'd like to duel more but I don't feel like it's a fair fight when I play medic/heavy most of the time.

Yep, it happens. Also a tip when using the sniper rifle, especially when it's lagging: if the target is moving, aim behind his head because the hit box often lags behind the actual graphic.

Yeah, a lot of the time I don't want to duel because it seems silly. If I decide to snipe, then I think it would be fun to duel the other sniper, but I would rather have it last the entire map, not the entire round. If I am heavy or medic, then challenging the other team's heavy or medic would be fun. But some match ups just seem unfair, with obvious results.

I only like duels because you get a random item after every 10 wins.

It's not a crate, is it? Random item= good. Crate = a waste of $2.49. I think I have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting a great item from a crate and I can get 2.5 lottery tickets for the cost of a crate. (I don't buy lottery tickets, either.)

I don't think it drops crates. It's always been a weapon for me. According to the guy that had 13337 wins, you can get hats from it.
