Your Eternal Reward is the best for payload when you're on defence. I've had a medic heal me three different times as I was becoming the other people on the cart. He seemed oblivious to the fact that I was morphing.

YER is great if you know what you're doing. I've seen so many garbage spies using it though.

I'm getting better as a demoman, especially in defense.

Demoman is hard.

 

Not even joking. Can't for the life of me get the hang of where pipes go - I can only seem to hit them at close or extremely long range. Loch-n-Load is a lot easier to aim, but I always feel really cheap when I use it. Actually, I feel cheap when I play any explosive-based class. I would like to actually be passable at soldier or demoman, but I get disheartened when I bottom frag and play scout the next game.

 

Ambossador spy is simply the best class to play in public servers. It's so much better than the normal revolver simply because it doesn't spread in stupid directions if you time it properly. You've got the headshot ability to defend yourself against scouts, backstabs to take out people who are unobservant and cloaking to grief snipers with. What more could you ever want? :3

I think demoman is the class with the biggest learning curve (although soldier and scout are close). I love demo though, I'm not great at it but I'm getting better, and I can usually be pretty effective.

You clearly have no idea how powerful the default revolver is.

I do, but I'm not complaining about its power - "it doesn't spread in stupid directions" - in that regard, the ambassador is a lot better because it actually shoots where you aim instead of, you know, hitting one shot out of 3 even though I'm aiming at them. With no spread, there's no reason not to use the revolver. But with the spread in pubs, the ambassador feels a lot more solid and predictable.

 

And yeah, demo takes quite a lot of brain to make up for missing pipes. Getting good at demo is advisable because the damage output is incredible and one good demo can be a massive factor in a push or defending a cap.

I <3 the ambassador. Two quick shots to a sniper's head = take that razorback!

This. A thousand times, this. God I love it, 'cause they never know what's happened until they're already dead. It's also brilliant for sniping teleports when I can't be bothered to Spy properly. I just lounge around with the C&D, snipe teleports and backstab randomers.

They both have the same spread last time I checked, the only difference is that with the Ambassador you tend to wait for the cooldown period and so don't notice it.

dunno if they changed it but a while ago they made the revolver (and pistols) fully accurate with the first shot just like the ambassador.

The fact that you can hit consistent 102 shots from any distance is another factor for me. It can be difficult to aim at longer ranges though it's just a matter of getting used to it. I'm a silly scout main anyway, what do I know about sniping.

The pistol, revolver/Big Kill, SMG, and Ambassador all have 0 spread for the first shot.

 

If you can consistently get the critical shots as a spy you should be playing sniper. What you're doing shooting from a distance is beyond me in the first place. I'm only shooting when I'm in close quarter fights where the enemy is attacking me, or really low on health. Otherwise I'll avoid the enemy, just like I do when playing pyro with the flare gun and axtinguiser and the enemy is a pyro or near water.

To be honest, the Ambassador was a response to the Razorback, and that's all I really use it for (unless of course I want to get their teleports from a long distance, without sapping them).

 

But I also use it 'cause, if I'm ever in a firefight, there's always a chance I might accidentally hit their head and get that lovely 102 hit. They never know what happened :3

I always use Ambassador, plus I downloaded the matching skin for the knife to go with it. <3

Abassador goes terribly in a firefight. The lower damage and slower firing speed put it at an immediate disadvantage. The off chance that you score a critical (which can only happen on the first shot in the fight, or the first shot after a reload) is so small it's negligible.

But I snipe at close range and spy at long range. 3:

 

I mean, I see your point; though it's more fun and satisfying for me to play spy like sniper w/ disguise and cloak rather than "seriously". The backstab mechanic feels broken (maybe it's my mediocre connection) and headshots seem to be a more reliable and entertaining way to play a class that's, well, usually really boring.

 

Also I love how people complain about pings over 40 or 50. I play with an avg. of 50 to UK servers and 60-90 when I'm playing 6v6 on continental servers. I don't think it's such an issue for the others here since a lot of the TF2 people seem to be from NA or Aus, but seriously, it does not put someone opposing me at a disadvantage. It puts me at a disadvantage. >100 ping is easily playable as scout and sniper up to about 170-180 and maybe even 200 depending on the server. Not all of us live in the middle of cities/have access to internet with enough upload speed to facilitate lower pings. Whiners gonna whine.

 

High ping gaming is fun anyway. I love playing in American lobbies and getting those lagshots.

Haha, oh I know. The other day the server I was playing suddenly lagged like crazy: wouldn't move, couldn't do [cabbage]. People instantly started blaming the guy with 330 ping (half of total players had like 200+) and that his ping was causing everyone else to get screwed over. It's the server people, not the ping. :P Idiots.

Hahaha yeah, it gets silly. ETF2L has considered ping caps but considering "Europe" pretty much extends from Iceland out to Turkey and Israel and thousands of miles into Russia then it would be unfair. Hell, I know a lot of UK players who are far ahead of me that play with well over 70 ping to Germany. There is so much [bleep]ing because countries that do have super internet feel like they are screwed over by people who have higher ping. It's not even the ping that matters - what matters are choke and loss which are factors in people warping. I'm fine with any ping as long as people aren't warping. Someone could have 10-20 ping and still warp like crazy.
