Topic: Ballistic / Boost time or possibly rent time suggestion

Because people UAV whore like hell. It breaks stealth on all classes, not to mention stam boost is enough to get a shadow from one side of the mall too the other.

Honestly I hate boosts beyond armor, they’re just addons that take away skill from the game.

I think the 1 day daily is good, because if it times down in matches only, the boost lasts so long, that everybody can afford all boosts.
And then it isn’t a boost, it is something, what everybody has. If everybody can afford that easily you can make it for free as well.

The time would be reduced, mentioned in OP, also it’s still a boost, not everyone might buy one. However it just deters casual players from playing, some people don’t play all day to make full advantage of the boosts, casuals being detered is money going out the window.

Topic: Ballistic / Boost time or possibly rent time suggestion

For the casual player it’s hard to play with everyone running all these 1k boosts, the casual won’t really try to spend 4k running all the boosts that are almost necessary to run in every game.

So here’s the suggestion:
Instead of timing down on a daily basis, have it time down in matches only.

This does incur reduced time for the boosts as 24 hours in match worth of boosts would probably slake people for weeks.

This could also apply to guns as well.

Thoughts?

Who else think the shotgun sidearm for marksman is just so fuggin epic?
Long range primary, close range sidearm for downing shadows.

It’s beautiful.

In order:

That’s either fast hands which is removing accuracy penalties while swapping weapons or the right one is 15% faster knife swings, both sucked.

First skill is instant death knives, never get close to a shadow.

And that last one is shadow step, basically what we have now.

Shadows weren’t always vanishing.


If shadow katanas are being removed, remove UAV and stam boost, seriously, they make classes ridiculous.

If it was a headshot then, yes. If not, they probably have damage increasing skills+Titanium ammo or a hacker.

You mean an SMG can 1 shot through an entire armored tank and through last stand?

All seriousness yes he’s a hacker.

It’s basically crosshairs + view distance, the game actually has good detection on if a player views another without crosshairs lining up.

Topic: Ballistic / Katanadows and Grenade-chuckers Ruined the Game

Best roaming =/= OP.
They can scan fast for kills, low engagement time so they aren’t ambushed often and cloak so they aren’t harassed like other classes.

FFA is solo wins, grenadiers, marksman, or possibly berserkers won’t get the best scores. Wraith, tank, van and shadow are the best canidates due to: sustainability (stealth, damage reduction and regen), searching power (which nowadays is look at the minimap and whore on the uav. Hate that thing), and possibly most important the engagement time, the less time you have to sustain combat the less damage you take and the faster you can move on.

Shadows are great for searching and katanas lower the engagement time, but that doesn’t mean it’s OP, it just means it’s good in FFA.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Class traits: Against heavies

Odd thread title no?
Basically with basic knowledge of each class, you would know what can do what, and what to use against so and so.
Like if you want to prevent assassins from killing all your allies then you would get a shocker or scout to try and counter. For a spam of techs and shockers, you could use a tank to kill the shell from the inside and let your team help lick up the sweet tech center, or snipers; lots of snipers.

The main point here is what would you use to counter the heavies; blaster and tank.
Does it work well?
Is it your go to source of disabling them? (Disable as in stop from performing it’s role or killing)
What if they’re supported?


What would you use to stop blaster and tanks?
I use assassin, commando and bomber. (I suck at scout :c)

Does it work well?
Assassin works the best for me, commando and bomber work pretty decently.

Is it your first pick when you want to stop them?
Not really, I focus on getting the team built up first, if the said unit is being a nuance then I do.

What if they’re supported?
Then I’d try to go bomber or assassin, commando is more or less effective since he can’t easily work around to kill the supporting unit.

Topic: Freefall Tournament / Pros and cons: Money system

Pros:
Motivates team play to a degree
Limits instantaneous alt advancement (Such as a returning hacker or banned player)
Guaranteed money for players participation

Cons:
Stagnation in higher levels of gameplay
Team based loss sharing (one player might play, others might give up)
Motivates last minute afking at the end of a doomed match
Can motivate AFKing in general


While the current system has flaws in it, it seems like it’s trying to control Money flow and prevent people from grinding without any understanding or skill of the class he was grinding with.

Reason I bring this up is to ask, what would you prepose for a new money system while keeping all the factors in mind:
Prevent grinding
Afkers
Skill building
Time
Work per capita

What would you make?

I wouldn’t mind a standalone, it’d cut down on some processes used by browsers, if it’s a good amount of lag gone then I’d totally do it.

White demoman for tf2 and black spy as well, because apparently race matters everywhere.
It’s not a simple “implementation” (instead of the word “issue”) as one would think, it also does not affect gameplay or stats, so cosmetics like this are going to be low priorty. Why was it so important to make a thread out of it?

You mean giving grenadiers long range options while moving, AKA kami + last stand + better weapons. Totes a nerf.
