Snipes1230
 
Yup I have been playing some fortress forever and unfortunately right now it lacks something the tf2 does have, new blood. Most people that are playing FF right now are the tfc vets, and no matter how good any game is, yous till need fresh blood. Hopefully people start hearing about it through word of mouth, but yea i'm really not all that optimistic.

This game is epic already.

Scout has a great attitude, the taunts are hilarious.

im glad at least for the turrets that they've shortened the range. we may no longer have grenades to take out turrets, but at least in some of the bigger rooms and outdoor maps, you can just stand outside the turret range and pelt them with bullets/rockets/etc.

Cheez-it II
 
finally got to play (download took forever) and holy hell this game is fun.

favorite class so far = pyro, which is odd since i hated the pyro in TFC, but the pyro is a great way to counter spies

i'm also surprised it runs on my shitty system, which is about... 6 years old

I ended up pre-ordering Orange Box because my WoW server was down earlier today, lol.

TF2 is pretty damn fun, havn't really been in the FPS scene in awhile.

Got it to play...........it's a shit ton of fun but really only because it's almost the same TFC fun with updated gfx.

Some things I liked:
Medics uberheal is cool but should last a little longer imo. Also they should've given the bastard a shotgun really

Cloak is awesomealthough i'm not sure how the timing works......when do you disappear completely after initiating it? Someone always sees me in the first few seconds

Didn't like:
They nerfed the soldier bad. He has little splash damage and his ability to rocket jump has become somewhat more useless with the new map layouts.

The sniper has been nerfed as well. The charging w/o scope and lack of being able to hold a charge while jumping makes the class alot less fun. Also in 2fort he's pretty damn useless. Sure this should cut down the amount of people using sniper, but sometimes it was damn fun to just snipe. Also you practically need to headshot for a kill and a charged shot no longer takes out an SG

Demoman is overpowered. His bombs hit too easily because they appear larger and the nature of the slower paced game (people run slower and jump smaller) and cause extreme damage. I can see this becoming the favorite amongst elitist. In tfc demoman was one of my worst classes because it was somewhat difficult to master. In TF2 though i was taking out people with ease with just one or two shots


All in all it's a great game though. Wonder if "the hunted" will come back?

edit- also anyone know if SGs fire faster at second level anymore?

Nah, uberheal lasts too long as it is. I lost a game where I was defending because a medic and a heavy hit uberheal as they were standing on the cap point. They were untouchable and we lost the game.

Agreed, soldiers are weaker but I still enjoy playing one over sniper.

I haven't had much experience going against demomen, but I really appreciate their ability to mine cap points. It's so satisfying to see a space faget scout dash up to the cap point and get gibbed.

Yeah, it wouldn't be half as fun as running in with a medic in tow and taking on five guys and a SG at once, knowing full well you're dead as fuck when uber ends.


But some stats, trivial or not, are better than no stats.

edit: And personally, I enjoy knowing I can fuck around, kamikaze, play for fun and laughs, etc. and not be penalized for it. I think thats just part of the spirit of the game.

edit2: A locked server with two friends and you could pump any stat you want through the roof.

Valve wisely looked at the problems with ranked BF2 servers and removed the stuff that causes stat whores to play like asshats.

Qwell
 
Loving the game, stayed up way too late for my own health last night so its coffee on today. I'll try and parse through the threads and get some Steam ID's cause I currently have one friend, and that moron wanted to chat last night instead of play the game. I think he might be a pedo, but on a serious note, my Steam ID is Qwell.

So far I think its balanced really well, pacing and balancing feels almost like warhawk except for of course the longer respawn time. But in terms of everyone being useful and stuff, I haven't played the scout much though, maybe tonight. I was loving the spy until I kept getting smacked by the 2 sentry guns someone planted in the information room.

I do think the style has a lot to do with the game though, really glad someone made a game with a different style approach instead of always trying to aim for a realistic human model. It just feels like I'm playing an R rated The Incredibles
