My opinion on that whole Skullcutter argument;

The Skullcutter slows you down, but gives you increased damage.
Move speed is more useful as a sticky bomb Demo than a better melee weapon.
Less move speed means you aren't as agile, and in most cases, you don't even have to engage in melee. You just back pedal with the sticky launcher.

I guess it really just depends on your play style, I personally think move speed is invaluable, so I choose to use the Bottle, or Frying Pan, as they are fine melee weapons when I absolutely have to melee. Plus the Bottle crits like a mad man.

Move speed > Skull Cutter

Bottle crits as much as Skullcutter also you think move speed is invaluable so you choose the Bottle :/


Move speed > Skull Cutter

I have seen countless times when me as skullcutter demo crit kills (or not crit) a Heavy from behind...

To all who might be wondering i just got my account hacked during a trade for metal and crates...
the guy who i traded to was of course had the name Anonymous and he traded me 2 crates for scrap.

when we both accepted it my screen and backpack had a major seizure and then i was booted from tf2, then i later found out that there were 2 emails sent through gmail stating my password was changed.(dont ask for a picture cause i couldn't alt shift print screen)

players beware you can now be hacked through trading systems
i hope i've helped some people with this info cause im still trying to get my damn account back ¬V¬

You do realize that this example is completely unrelated to this discussion?Let's just presume that none of us is insane, yes?

Soldier is ridiculously slow. He makes up for it by being able to rocket jump, which is a very versatile and easy to manouvre movement mechanic, which is pretty much the opposite of sticky jumping. SJing has distance, and that's about it. It may just be that since I mostly play Medic and Scout, I'm used to being a fast class, but to me, Soldier's walking speed is abysmal.

Well, yeah...it takes a short while to get used to Heavy/Soldier after a long Medic/Scout session.
Basically, the thing is that playing Demo got much harder after the WAR! update.
I used to be quite good, and Demo is still my 3rd MPC...but nowadays I barely get some decent points, and I need the 'cutter because players are constantly trying to melee me:
Spies, crazy Powerjack Pyros, Mackerel Scouts, Bushwacka Snipers, Imbalizer Soldiers and of couse Demoknights, they all want to get your ass.

Wat. I'd say a slower running speed makes this playstyle much more valuable, since you're stationary or restricted in movement a lot of the time, while you're camping out somewhere to spam stickies into.

Frankly, I wouldn't know because I never use sticky spam...it makes me feel cheap.

Well, I guess this explains why you inexplicably like the Skullcutter so much, and why you don't think speed is important.
Offence Demo here.

It does indeed...I don't play Offence Demo much anymore because of the aforementioned reasons.

Oh yeah it is. I have to pay US$90 for any of the recent big studio games, such as MW2, BlOps, Civ5, Mafia 2 etc.

90?Lol.Getting someone you trust to gift it to you and then send him the money via PayPal, even with all the fees, is still cheaper.

Nearly double what my US counterparts have to pay.

....or buy unusuals and trade them for games.

I'm hoping I can do enough for the 15-objective hat.

I've got 116 games, hopefully SOME of them should show up. I got 3 of today's. RUSE can fuck off, I'm not paying £20 for a hat.

I would like to buy a hat for £200 thanks Valve!

Wouldn't mind buying Chime, and already got the avatar achievement and will get PNatI's soon, since I got Max's stuff last night.

I'll pass. Not only do I not have R.U.S.E, I have other games to go through such as all the Sam & Max episodes and I don't want to be sidetracked from it. Plus, I have a full-time job. As for the other objectives they'll provide, we'll see.

I dunno, it certainly seems that VALVe has an infinite supply of ideas that "make" people buy games they don't need, or even want....
I'll only buy a Treasure Hunt game if I was planning to anyway and it's on a big sale.
I wonder how the hatte's will look like.
The first one will be worth less than a nv hat, the second one as much as a good vintage hat, and the last..probably as much as an unusual, if you take into consideration how much luck, time and/or money (you either already have all the games and achievements, or you have to buy them and get them all) you gotta have to get it.

Most likely. It'll be up there with the Poker Visors and Ellis' Caps.

the second one as much as a good vintage hat

Hm, fair enough. Difficult to predict that.

and the last..probably as much as an unusual

Actually, I'd go as far as to say it'd be the most valuable hat of all (save for the propaganda test winners). I can't see there being too many of these.

True, but...if..if you think about it...
If its value is around 500$, which is pretty likely....maybe buying the games might be worth it?
But if too many people think like that the value will drop significantly.Who knows?
Also, new objectives in 40 mins.
I hope that they don't have too many "buy X game and get Y achievement" ones, but they probably will.
Although that means more sales.And after that, Christmas sales.Jeez.

Maybe but since one man can buy the games to play them ONCE only for the hat it suxD:

Well, I do hope that too. I would like to see some objectives I can do but since I have really not-so-many steam games I have to be really lucky to get at least 10 objectives so I guess that if its like 17 I will do buy a game so I can at least get the bounty hunter hat in tf2. But I do hope that they have options like be a part of a general steam group, or have X playtime in popular games like tf2.

I just hope that they won't use ancient or games that one will probably just buy for the entry. In fact it was a perfect idea until the tf2 hat issue when it ruined that thing up >:
What if some people just do not buy games they just do not like>: ?

Anyway, time will show more information.

Although that means more sales.And after that, Christmas sales.Jeez.

Well, the first objective was easy enough for me. For AAAAA..., I'll check up on that specific level and see what I can do. I've played most of the game already so I may as well. As for The UnderGarden, may as well play the demo and see what the game is like. If I like it, I'll pick it up.

New Killing Floor DLC containing Pyro as a playable character... as well as an item for TF2. I'm liking the sound of Pyro being in Killing Floor.

Also, for the latest treasure hunt, I did finish the object for AAAAA.... as well as playing UnderGarden. Don't really like that game so I'm glad I just got the demo and tried before buying.

So today this dude says he'll trade Vintage hats for 2 refined metals. So I trade for a vintage Pyro's Beanie.

Next, this dude is asking for any 2 vintage hats for the Grenadiers Softcap or that crocodile head one. So I trade the Beanie and vintage Soldiers Stash for the Softcap.

ITEM SET COMPLETE!

The unlockables are Mr Foster's Hat and his Tie from Killing Floor, they can be seen at the bottom of this link. KF is a great game, anyone who doesn't own it should.

You have to be kidding me, Killing Floor is so dull, boring and absoloutely crap.

"Everyone who owns both Killing Floor and Team Fortress 2 will now get a playable red or blue "The Pyro" character from TF2 recreated in the Killing Floor art style! But wait there's is more - everyone that owns TF2 and either already owns or purchases Killing Floor before the event ends will receive a special item in Team Fortress 2: Mr Fosters Gasmask and Tie equippable on the Pyro! This item is only available until the end of the Twisted Christmas event on January 4th so act now! "

Hopefully this means I wont have to spend any money or even play that hunk of shit again.
