Twenty-seven and a half minute hold on the final point of Dustbowl tonight.

I think I set multiple medic personal bests, thanks to a great hold by my teammates.

I decided to just camp out in the left building as a Heavy and it seamed to really make a difference in holding. It was a meet grinder, but a great one!

BTW, Dimmer, just so you know. You were the first victim of my Goodjer Grinder!

I assume this means you used a name tag on a weapon? I'm happy to have been the inaugural victim, given that final hold we pulled off. Pretty sure that won't be beaten any time soon, since you have to be more or less rolled through all the points until then to have that much time on the clock.

I hope no one thought it was the end times last night when they saw me sniping and yes I know it was UGLY

Just wanted to try something different. I love playing soldier, but I'm getting a little burnt out on it.

Actually you were doing OK although it was tough to harass you too much with the demo spam and continuous wrangle fire we were facing. There as one bizarre moment when I peaked around the corner and had your head in my crosshairs. I pulled the trigger and I died instead. Apparently you pulled the trigger a hair before I did.

Ya, I was confused when I stabbed a sniper and it was you...

That last point was soul draining. I couldn't take it anymore, I had to stop playing. So boring. I may have to add 3rd stage of dustbowl to my list of maps to just not play (thundermountain being the other) because they just aren't any fun.

I just want to say that I appreciate any team willing to throw themselves into a meat grinder for 27 minutes.

ukick was defeated. That is a win for everyone.

It's the worst sound in the world when you pull the trigger, hear the first millisecond of the firing sound, only to have your own head blown off before you actually fire the shot.

Gah Grubber, that feels like my life as a sniper!

Yeah, 20+ minutes of playing and not getting anywhere pretty much ends it for me too.

Also, it seems I was having hella issues last night. I was getting a ton of warping, and it seems that most of the night no one could hear my talking. It felt like someone else was playing my game at points, as I would move around without hitting any keys.

Yeah sure, never mind that you rolled through the other 2 stages in like 30 seconds... That made it even better

I played retard spy (full Saharan Spy set with dead ringer, can't cloak or disguise) on those first 2 stages and the first part of stage 3, so it's not like I was actually helping that much then... That's what I do on maps I don't like, I come up with weird class layouts. That or I just snipe, like on goldrush.

When we came out of spawn at the start of stage 3, I (playing as heavy) received a KK, then an uber + KK, then another KK. It was astounding; I thought we only had 3 medics but I kept getting those KKs/Ubers and we were able to cap that first point in like 30 seconds (so it seemed to me at least).

After that, we never ever could get much of anything going. I think we got to the final point once for about 2 seconds before everyone came out of spawn and killed us off. Very, very frustrating. Around 20 minutes in, I was very close to rage quitting.

And Gumbie, your sniping was pretty ugly. Just probably not the way you intended when you wrote that.

Last night the progress bar at the bottom of the screen disappeared. I couldn't tell how many people are on a pl cart, or if we were capping a point. Not sure why it happened, except that I installed a new video card yesterday. Any ideas?

This has happened to be before. Usually a re-load will fix it. I usually had it happen when I was minimized while in-game. I solved that by running the game in windowed/no border mode. I highly recommend this for everyone, since otherwise TF2 craps itself with rage if you try minimizing.

I tend to love Dustbowl, I think it is a great map and I like the 3rd one too. It used to be no-one ever held that point on a goodjer server. However, one day Mex/Ukick (not sure which) started to master demo man on the corner where attackers usually setup and it became a defense easy map.

Also the other route in isn't very usable for most people (the lower route) and the left building (left from def.) is the only other way to flank that last point, but I have noticed once a good attack gets built up on that left building it is over quickly. However, the corner demo spam kills that off pretty quick! Meaning there is only one entrance to that point. GRIND!

Yes, I renamed Sasha to "Goodjer Grinder" Dimmer was my first test grind a couple of nights ago.

I remember once on that final point we were being held up, and I got into that left building, and then just ran out all the way to behind the point, wondering why on earth it had been so difficult before. Really, I think had we changed up our attack strategy a bit last night we might have had more success, but I spent most of the time wondering if my team could hear me or not.

There's a new hatte for preordering Homefront. Servers rebooting now.

Glad to see that we approve of mic spamming on the pub now. Sigh.

What do you mean we? I hate mic spamming and plan on booting any non-goodjer who does it. If goodjers do it they should be asked to stop. I hope we are all courteous enough to stop when asked.

He was booted.

Yeah, Psych is such a jerk.

Spoiler:

What? I'm really back and forth on the Psych is a jerk issue. He's just too fun not to hate!

Great, I crashed right as I kritzed fuzzybunny on that last part of Cashworks... I hope we won

Yeah, dustbowl last night was enough dustbowl for a few months for me.

Hmm, did I have any fun tonight?

Well, at least I'm getting better at Soldier.

Damn Steam. I was going to wait to pick this up until after April when I actually have time to play video games again.

Yep, we won. Was a good hold on that last point.

Looks boss.

Aparently you get Metro 2033 as well. Wish I had some cash to drop on it. That bandana looks badass.
