Orange box for $7.50....hmm...I already have tf2 and I don't care much for the other games. But to think I payed $20 for one game when it could have been half as much for five.

It's worth every cent. Even not factoring in TF2.

Bought the Orange Box during the Black Friday sales and just got to play TF2 for the first time. I'm such a newb but damn have I been missing out on some fun.

Yay! What's your steam ID?

Furah, is there an update coming out? Does Valve release update schedules beforehand?

It's not worth much, but I can give you a Sergeant's Drill Hat (Soldier.)

It depends which class you like. The only non-default weapon I found useful was Your Eternal Reward, but I got a few weapons from drops and achievements that were really helpful. I wouldn't get anything for the soldier or demoman (the scottish resistance is decent, but not really necessary). Heavy really depends on your playstyle, sniper, medic, and engie are fine with defaults. Scout would be a good one, but you might not enjoy playing as him, and I can't reccommend a weapon because multiple combinations work well. The spy stuff can mostly be gotten from achievements. Backburner is great for pyro.

Max's head is awesome. But what's wrong with the Pillar? I sort of like it, even if it makes you more visible.

 

And update was just a wierd paint patch or something. It's made all my hats look white, but I think they're fixing that.

Arggh noooooo :(

 

Direct hit is great for soldier as is buff banner. Demo is fine with defaults but i like the axe as well. Sandwich is crucial for heavy, and the swift gloves can be great if used properly. For a medic the blutslaugher is great if you know how to use it and the kritz is crucial on defensive. Gotta have jarate on sniper as well. Backburner isn't good for pyros at all unless you want to play an individual game - you're far more useful as a team player with the default thrower or even the degreaser.

Indeed :)

 

Scout is so much fun, my favorite class by far :D

Guys, as far as I know there was no updates today, but remember that if there's a god he's told Telstra to hate me and so I often can't play after updates until I visit a friend.

Not necessarily. I play a lot on Dustbowl, if I'm on defense I could sneak around and ambush attacking parties. If I'm on offense I get a 15% damage bonus.

Especially on that third capture point map. A lot of the fighting takes place in that alley between the two points, but there's a tunnel that leads from the start of it to the canyon area. Just go through that and burn the other guys from behind.

It's not completely useless but imo it doesn't compare to neutralizing ubers, saving sentries from stickies, reflecting rockets, and putting out teammates.

Yup. Same for heavy though, to be honest.

They released plans for the Natascha changes in the little thing about the upcoming beta version.

Backburner isn't good for pyros at all unless you want to play an individual game - you're far more useful as a team player with the default thrower or even the degreaser.

Direct hit is crap. The point of soldier is to be able to fire rockets (especially crits) into tight areas and scatter/destroy enemies with splash damage, DH reduces splash damage. Buff banner - maybe, if you're feeling selfless. I had it when I asked for those gunboats from you, and I've been using them since. It was game-changing for me to be able to rocket jump without worrying about the damage. I have the axe on demo (two actually) and I don't really use it for melee. It's much better to use pipes or stickies at close range. Medics normally heal heavies, and if you can get out of firing range to eat then you can take a minute to find a dispenser or health pack. I don't have GRU or kritz, so I can't judge those, but I haven't used my blutsaugher because I rarely play offensively as a medic, it's much better as a support class. Jarate as sniper is not that great, I crafted two of mine into scrap. I use the razorback instead, as it pretty much prevents backstabs. Backburner on pyro is awesome, with the damage boost and the crit from behind. Since pyro's relatively fast, you can run around behind, especially if it's a group of enemies. With the crits, you can take down a heavy in a few seconds. I scrapped my degreaser, because who wants faster weapon switching and some air thing if it comes with a severe damage reduction?

I've been playing Medic a lot lately, because it's one of the few classes playable on my crappy processor.

 

I'm actually getting pretty decent at Medic too.

 

Still can't wait till Christmas for my i7, then I'll be playing TF2 the right way.

Only if you're not great at soldier. If you're good at it the damage boost is significant if you're getting direct hits.

 

Buff banner - maybe, if you're feeling selfless. I had it when I asked for those gunboats from you, and I've been using them since. It was game-changing for me to be able to rocket jump without worrying about the damage.

 

It really depends whether you want to play individually or as a team. Gunboats are definitely better as an individual, but the buff banner team buff is pretty epic.

 

I have the axe on demo (two actually) and I don't really use it for melee. It's much better to use pipes or stickies at close range.

 

Yeah, but it's better then the bottle for melee, at least as far as i've found.

 

Medics normally heal heavies, and if you can get out of firing range to eat then you can take a minute to find a dispenser or health pack.

 

Yeah, the sandwich is good for when you have a medic at low health. Not so much for yourself.

 

as sniper is not that great, I crafted two of mine into scrap. I use the razorback instead, as it pretty much prevents backstabs.

 

Once again, team vs individual. You can majorly increase damage with jarate, plus coat spies, or put out fire - your team will thank you if you're good with jarate.

 

Backburner on pyro is awesome, with the damage boost and the crit from behind. Since pyro's relatively fast, you can run around behind, especially if it's a group of enemies. With the crits, you can take down a heavy in a few seconds. I scrapped my degreaser, because who wants faster weapon switching and some air thing if it comes with a severe damage reduction?

 

And once again, team vs individual. Backburner is great as an individual player - but it doesn't beat the flexibility of the normal one. Degreaser is meant for flame + axtinguisher players, and can be extremely useful if used correctly.
