First time in a while I've seen Dustbowl held by both teams on 1-1.

Good times tonight!

Hmmm, I was on Red both times. Coincidence?

Spoiler:

Yes.

MY MASTER PLAN HAS FINALLY COME TO FRUITION

Oh, THIS was the plan?

i like how there are 200k crates for sale. Guess they drop a lot and are not opened enough.

Keys are expensive. If they sold them for $1 I think they'd make more money.

I've got a page dedicated to crates I haven't opened when I look in my backpack. I'm tempted to sell them but I have crates with single digits that I'm curious if I should keep and someday open or if they're not worth it.

New pyro hatte! And with it, a new compilation picture of all of them.

You're the TF2 one percent, YOU MONSTER

I think after 1,200+ hours of actually playing TF2 (no idling) and after opening dozens of crates Vavle should just give me a damn unusual hat. Grumble grumble...

I think the odds should increase after opening a bunch of them! But they don't

And I approve of the pyro hatte!!

It's from the 2011 Saxxys. I had a finalist in that.

You and me both, brother.

I think I have figured out a way to get ukick to play medic more. It involves sticky jumping and the quick fix. More news on this disturbing development as it breaks

You noticed it too? I thought it was a fluke.

The guy who's always following you around and you keep sacrificing to get a couple of kills

But if you are ever feeling suicidal, ukick is your man.

I finally got the Faerie Solitaire misc. item. I was getting really worried about that.

I vote 4. But I may have just been changing my weapon at the time.

It all depends on the situation. I usually don't protect a medic on the extremes of play (if I'm just screwing around, or if the teams are incredibly lopsided). If I'm just screwing around, which is at least half the time, I usually warn the medic in advance that he likely won't survive if he follows me. If I am on a team full of mostly pubbies in which we have a slim chance of winning and I think that killing a couple extra people on the other team is worth losing the medic because if I die trying to save the medic and then all he has to heal is the 2nd and 3rd snipers, my death was pointless. Otherwise, if I'm trying and teams aren't incredibly stacked, I'll protect the medic.

A good rule of thumb with me is, if I'm not a heavy, expect to die, but you will either get a lot of assists or be a part of some epic uber pannings before you do.

Part of being a good medic is quickly assessing your patient's ability/desire to keep you alive. There are many types of patients:
1. People who will sacrifice themselves so that you live and are aware of your situation at all times.
2. People who try to keep you alive but aren't very good at it (can be due to the class they pick).
3. People who are slow to react when you are attacked but generally try to keep you alive and are decent at it.
4. People who just don't care if you live or die because they are self absorbed jerk-bags.

ukick is all of them at one time or another.

I don't recall pyros having any gear in the 4 slot... is this the secret in your special sauce?!

Also, I know all of the veterans have seen this discussion-relevant comic from... holy hell, 2007, really?... but just in case any of our newer players missed it:

On a pub server I'll gladly take ukick stage 4 over any other pubbies out there. I don't truly think ukick is a self-absorbed jerk-bag unless he is on the other team.

I have always liked that particular PA comic. Amazing how many people still don't get it, too. I will, though, kill the heavy first if I get the drop on him. The medic is harmless without the heavy and I can usually get both of them. If they are in a group or they get the drop on my I'll take the medic first. A good heavy never wants to hear, "Got your medic."

Sold an item on the market. Worked pretty well but there are extra steps involved for selling multiple items. I am now 48 cents richer.

So, one 48 cent hooker or 48 1 cent hookers?

Just like pubbies, quantity over quality.
