Official Team Fortress 2 Game Nights (PC)

Sounds solid so far

Sounds good to me. Has to be better than the Valve method.

Ran into my demo twin this morning. Not a spy, just someone who felt they should also dye their hair the same color...

What is the difference between these two? I don't see a skill ranking in the stats anywhere. As is, rank is going to be somewhat biased toward people that play a lot so if there's a really good player that doesn't play a whole lot, the scramble mod might overlook them. If the skill ranking somehow factors in time played, I'd be in favor of it instead of rank. But, if it's just some nebulous number like the skill ranking in Battlefield, not so much.

I these posted screenshots you might be able to discover a theme. It's not easy, but give it a try anyway...

So.
First post bitching about HLSTATSX?
As a medic, I get three points for an assist.
As a medic, I get one point for deploying an uber.
Discuss.

I think I am going to follow evilseed's advice about HLstatsX. It doesn't yet have me playing any differently but it does have me more pissed off thinking about how poorly I am playing.

5. My rank is embarrassing. How can I opt out?

Say /hlx_hideranking while playing on a participating game server. This will toggle you between being visible on the Player Rankings and being invisible.

Note: You will still be tracked and you can still view your Player Details page. Use the Search page to find yourself.

For those of you not interested in stats.

Sparhawk those are some of the most beautiful screenshots I've ever seen in this thread. It's so beautiful it's bringing a tear to my eye.

+1 for sniper rifle variety.

Also, lol at the demoman in the last screenshot.

Thing is, you dont really play poorly, you're a good part of any team, however you play the class that is most likely to die a lot, just due to overall design (except perhaps a bad scout) so that screws your stats a bunch.

Playing medic you get a lot of points and less deaths, but it screws up your k/D ratio too so... It's just stats, don't let it screw your fun

Funny, until I think about what I've spent on keys......

We're so spoiled.

Thank you, Gumbie, for treating me like a pubbie tonight. I realize I was upset, having a bad night, and playing horribly. But thanks for not taking the time to tell me I was being an ass.

Here I am minding my own business eating a sandvich when a pyro tries to burn me, but then caberman comes to my rescue and jarateman puts me out.

Pink bandannas are cool?

A friend of mine runs a game hosting company (jestservers.com ) and I was asking about the cost of running a TF2 server. He said it's 1$ a spot or .80 a spot if you pay quarterly.

He then went on to say: "I have extra space, let me just give you a server"

So I have this 24 person server hosted in LA.

Your Team Fortress 2 server has been created. Here is your game server's information:
IP: 64.120.10.243
Port: 27015
Slots: 24

I put a trade map on it. Any ideas what I should do with it?

I used to rent a L4D2 server from Jest.

You know what, I agree with Spies only being unlocked at Rank 26 u_u

Maybe snipers at Rank 50, however long it takes

it shall be done, if I can figure out how. Uploading the maps now.

Sweet!

I still have tickets for MvM. Invite me whenever.

Neckroman was Ape sh*te your friend? I'm glad he hung around long enough for me to dominate him after he told me how sh*tty of a sniper I was.

I *think* this prophunt server is up and running. I was able to join a game on it, but it doesn't start if there is just one person.

Also it took like 10 minutes to download the map, even though I made .bz2 versions of the maps and put them on the server

You all might want to just predownload the maps (available here http://gamingmasters.co.uk/prophunt/...)

Had a 17 death streak.
