I wonder why...possibly because that's the only class they've developed a training mode for?!

Brb, getting model with bewbies. :3

On another note I hope they release both "Meet the" videos with the Engie update. Don't you think they kind of ruined thesuspence of Meet the Pyro?

Then again, Vavle could be fucking with us, we all know they love doing that.

Well, they ARE fucking with us, since you can only see the "her" message once..every time I looked at the message AFTER taking the snapshot it had "him"...it's like an old blob entry, remember?

Well, as most of us could predict, the first wave of Mac flaming arrived. Fortunately me and HeavyTank found a server which is still PC ruled but I wil tell you some other examples of funny stuff that happened today.

1)The new earbuds leave floating white notes which if you are spy are seen so spies should not wear them.

2)Today I killed a Mac user(among over 10 Mac users I killed I think( the earbuds are hard to see to anyone except heavy)). At the first kill he told me:Windows noob soulkutu you have no social life

At the second kill he told me: omg you are such windows noob and you fail because windows makes it easier and your girlfriend get ^&^% with someone else(which is paranoid because I am too young to have girlfriend but anyway)

I dominated him but because bith me and the admin knew that he will start the flaming, the admin kicked him.
Also, I saw once when another guy told our admin who was playing freaking noob. The admin warned him that he will ban him. The guy told that he is windows influenced admin and that microsoft pays him to ban all mac users and that he hates VALVe (he said nothing about VALVe though) because the did one good act to allow mac users to play tf2. He also said that VALVe allowed macs to play tf2 because they were bored of seeing windows noobs trying to kill each other in a pathetic way.

I say I do not like the new main menu and I feel a bit confused about mac users BUT if they start the fight and I do not respond well it can get annoying.

P.S. of course many mac users were saying their earbuds are cooler, even cooler than my officer's ushanka but my Shascha proved the wrong:)

P.S.(2) after the admin flaming the admin banned the guy and ~ 6 macs told him he is noob admin and that they go to join their fellow mac user and that they will report this admin.

Now what can you calculate or even think of these things that happen to Steam servers.

(Note: this is the first wave of mac users. The second massive wave may be calmer but I bet we will see more problems about this in the future, I just hope that everyone will stop flaming everything and that the menu will change back to the old because I want this HL/CSS character back >: )

Goddamn, you probably joined the wrong server at the wrong time...

Wow, American servers must suck, huh?

I have to say, UKCS servers were pretty decent..one guy tried to start a flame war with a new user (who clearly said that it was his first time ever playing online, and he even has "@Mac" at the end of his name..) and an admin warned him that any discriminating behaviour will get you instabanned.
Game-wise, I discovered how damn useful the shiv is..I actually managed to dominate a spy and not get killed by any spy during my whole sniper session..the bleeding can be seen even throguh cloaking, so it's pretty easy to hunt down spies (maybe even noscope them).
Also had a bit of swinging fun as a Demo and tried actual Ctri-a-Cola tactics..if you use it in the right way, it can be pretty damn useful..I'm just not sure if it's better than the pistol or not.
Apart from that, I found the usual garbage (Cloak and Dagger and Ubersaw).

Meh, I wish there was a Windows version of the earplugs..you know, maybe headphones, or just "normal" earplugs...it's kinda unfair that you can't get an item because of your OS (or maybe there's a way to get them, but it's not clear yet-apparently it's not killing a Mac user, I asked around and nobody confirmed it).

I've been hearing a lot of stories about people getting kicked/banned from servers just because of those earbuds. It's sad how Valve has to make items which only add fuel to the fire. It doesn't help when they make misleading information such as saying you can kill Mac users who are wearing earbuds to get the item yourself. From what I've heard, it doesn't even work so no wonder why there's tons of rage in the Steam forums right now.

Another thing about these exclusive items. I know they're made for special events but within a year or two, I really think some of them should be obtainable through the drop system or crafting three refined metals. It won't be fair on the newer generation when they see all the items they missed out on.

I don't think it's as bad as most make it out to be. Sure, the achievement and record boxes at the top take up a lot of space but besides that, a bit of time to adjust to it and I'll be content.

US servers aren't that bad, though I just stick to my happy place, which would be the Slaughterhouse servers. Lots of nice people play there. But I haven't popped in, in about a week. About to.

I'm more interested about this new Engi shotgun. Looks like it's more focussed on long distance, so perhaps encourages an engi to go about picking people off from a bit of a distance, as opposed to the pistol spam that tends to happen once we finish building a main base.

I agree. It looks like it would fire slower, and use slug rounds instead of buckshots, thus increasing the range. With a damage increase, to compinsate, of course.

I've still yet to see any PC vs Mac fanboyism on any servers. Non-Aussie servers must suck, huh?

I'm betting its going to be something like "improved accuracy for smaller ammo clip" or something like that. I would say a power deduct but then it would just be a shotgun equivalent of the ambassador.

Well, I must say Australian servers are strangely calm. I must warn you though, Center European servers like French, German, Spain ones and even UK at some times are explicably angering. The whole situation going on steam forums is that PCusers stated that they will "hold their ground" versus Mac users who are few to argue now. They are the most fanatics but I fear they will sweep more into the fight. I wonder when the flaming will stop.

About the new main menu, I do not argue about the options and this stuff I argue because it is SOOOO APPLISH. Look at it. Messages popping with the characteristic apple "flop" sound also, white emphasis lines among stats board and the new language of the new tips(e.x. (..) your silhouette can be seen as spy (...) make it sooooo, how to say it.. wanting to be proved cool whatever happens, pretty much like Macs.

About the new engi shotgun it OBVIOUSLY has to do with long range targets although it seems really POW HAHA. I bet its like a Russian Rifle from Battlefield Bad Company 2 that its pretty much like this and throws 2 bullets per shot that are close to each other and travel long distances. If let's say this tf2 bullet pair can deal 50 damage with a direct close hit but 30 from a long hit, the engineer with 4 good shots can clear a pesky sniper.

The tips were actually community submitted - they were updated to deal with stuff like the new weapons etc... >_>

Valve didn't have anything to do with it besides implementation, and I doubt the guy that wrote them really had Macs on his mind when he thought of them.

Today I realised the values of combat engineering. I was on 2fort and managed to build a lv2 sentry outside their spawn. My sentry got only 3 kills because the guys were ULTRA CAREFUL but that allowed me to grabe their intel and do the winning cap. At one point they begged me to remove the sentry because it was harrasing all happy scout who managed to get back to spawn with 3 hp.
So offensive engi is a bit of win if you manage to "do it the right way"=]

I've just come from a game where there were a good few anti-mac comments. When I asked why all the hate on Mac, the reply was "because they are Mac-fags". Some people are just so petty it's unbelievable. I don't understand why someones choice of operating has such negative effects on users of differing systems.

Anyway, that negativity aside, I'm having a really fun time with TF2. I'm enjoying it more than when I played it on my old Windows laptop because it's running smoother now as the other laptop wasn't really meant for games. Found a few servers that I like playing on as well.

I think I want to try and improve how I play with the Spy. I'm not all that great as it stands, but I think it's a really interesting class to play as. I put in some time with Engineer, which I don't normally play, and managed to fully build my sentry gun only for it to get no kills before a spy took it down as a scout was shooting at me. I suppose I need to improve there as well.

Personally, I love the new tips...the old ones were only updated every time a major weapon or gameplay change was implemented...
Also, when people said "because they are MacFags", they probably meant the annoying Mac users, not all of them.
