Official Team Fortress 2 Game Nights (PC)

Who has mod privileges on the servers? I've never been sure who does and who doesn't. Y'all look the same to me.

Walken Dead (pgroce)

Admin list is here. It's not 100% correct as of today, but pretty close.

Tannhausered by notorious JERK above >_<

I'm starting to think I should get someone to change my name on here to Walken Dead, as it seems to have stuck on Steam and it would reduce confusion. Any idea whom I should pester for that, and if it's worth it?

Many people have done it, I don't believe it is much of a hassle. Just PM Certis if you decide you want to change.

For what it's worth, I think we've been kicking people way too quickly / frequently lately, especially on non-full servers. If a person isn't trolling, I see no reason 95% of the time to be kicking people when the server isn't full. Also, I prefer to mess around with people instead of just straight out kicking them. It's funner and it keeps the server population up. Like if someone has an offensive name, I'll use the admin name change ability and force change their name instead of just kicking them :)

I tend to agree with this. I get very frustrated some times when I look at the team, and see two snipers/spys/scouts at the bottom of the list of contributor are realize that is a big reason why we are failing. I don't think I'd mind if those people are kicked for performance after a few warnings, but we should make sure they know why. BrainHz does a great job of letting people know, and tormenting them verbally if they don't rethink their strategy. More of that would be more helpful than just kicking people.

Yeah Certis will take care of it.

Also, when tormented, the real assholes will smart-off back, giving reason for kicking. The good ones (people, not necessarily players) will take the hint, eventually.

It's not the pubbies that we get frustrated with. It's the pubbies that don't listen.

I can see that.

I mostly answered because I didn't want EvilHomer to feel bad about telling us how to do our stuff. It can be helpful. Otherwise I just kind of assume that the Internet has no shortage of people to get angry at.

What, I can be Datin here now instead of a name that confuses people when they try to pronounce it? Well heck I'll get right on that.

Also, more TF2 tonight. Need to get back into the groove after my horrible ping-filled night last night.

Please do! Even though I've finally figured out how to pronounce it, it still doesn't look right. It's Dat Yed Ye-guy! =)

The GWJ Powers That Be said that one-time name changes are okay if it's to conform to your Steam (or other) nickname. Tboon and I have both done it.

I don't know, but I'm glad he's gone. That guys was a world-class jerk.

Fun game to watch. Love the sword Walker uses. Ending of the match is also really funny.

Brian and I are so mad still.

We can check with Dimmer on the replay. Since we rarely use the private any more (thanks to people like Moo) I don't know that we need it on there any longer. The setup isn't too difficult, though.

My hosting account has more capacity than I will ever reasonably use. I should probably hop on that account and wipe the past howeverlongworth of old replays, but I'm fine with the pub pointing to the same spot that the private used, if we'll be disabling it there.

One caveat: the shared server my hosting account is on has unlimited upload/download limits, but not unlimited bandwidth. I remember some folks complaining that the private was a little less responsive when we added replays, and a pub server is likely to be more demanding in that regard.

So, it may be that I don't have a big enough connection on this box to support doing replays on the pub, but I'm game to try.

Also: it was very nice of folks to let me MVP a couple rounds earlier tonight. A kind welcome-back gift, and very appreciated.

Seriously though, when the hell are they going to fix the terrible lung capacity in this game?

Also

I can honestly say that is the first time I've heard complaints about lung capacity in TF2.

SpyXpert let me down last night. I was very sad.

Weird pubby talk from last night.

Bristles is not the hero we deserved, but the hero we needed.

You and Dimmer still owe me. I accepted the trade but it never connected, I'm pretty sure you sabotaged it.

I bristle at that suggestion sir.

Anyone have experience with scripting? I am trying to bind a key to say a lot of text into voice chat. The max characters in text chat is about 125 and What I'm typing is about 200+ characters. Here's what I have so far:

alias "dumbassscout" "dumbassscout1;wait 150;dumbassscout2"
alias "dumbassscout1" "say Hey, SCOUT player. Try pyro/soldier/med. If you MUST play scout then flank or get behind them and go for the medic."
alias "dumbassscout2" "say Harass and run away towards their spawn. Pick off lone players or people retreating. Use Bonk to get behind them then destroy teleports."
bind "]" "dumbassscout"

I can bind both of those to separate keys and they both work. I can switch the order of the first line to run dumbass2 first and that works. The full alias only runs one of them, though. No errors or anything it just ignores the second alias. If I set the alias to "dumbassscout1;wait 150; +attack" it works fine.

I agree.

Hey I just wanted to think Wakim on this thread for gifting me the Strange Festive Huntsman last night.

Spoiler:

Not a euphemism, jerks

I haven't come up with a good name for it yet. Suggestions welcome!

Thanks! I may need to make the avatar more matchy-matchy. OTOH, Ikea TARDIS guy. So conflicted.
