    Last night was epic fun as a pyro :thumb:

    Personally i'm not to interested in the scout class or the updates, however from playing last night against scouts, I noticed that scouts using the energy drink could also dodge a flame thrower which I thought was a bit OTT, but we shall see, its just a matter of learning new ways to tackle the changes.

    Already got all 3 new weaps.. the sandman (bat n ball) is probably the best, because it has 100% stun and 5% ragequit ability on the person it hits. xD

    Actually Bonk doesn't increase your speed, it just makes you invulnerable for a while with slow down after words. Think of it as the agents or Neo in the matrix, they don't run faster but they can still dodge bullets.
    But indeed, grand time as pyro right now, though the sandman is less fun when you're on the receiving end.

    Its a shame so many people jsut get the achievements by farming them straight away, i think half the fun is in slowly getting them through genuine play.

    ^ Seriously. I've been maining Scout for the last few months and now it seems I can't play him on any server I frequent because everyone and their brother wants the unlocks, even when they've never played Scout for anything more than mere moments.

    lol refering to its stopping power maybe.

    I got all my achievments prety quick cause of course I want the unlocks, the sandman is really good especially now without any damage reduction to the bat itself, the forceAnature works well and balances out not having a double jump from the sandman perfectly.

    The problem I have with the achievements is that I can only play the game occasionally, in the year that I've got the game I think I haven't gotten more than 20+ hours on it. For me to unlock any of the unlocks would require me to play that class normal for more than I've played the game in total. I'd like it if they gave the weapons for free or just a few achievements so it wouldn't take that long for people who just want to enjoy the occasional game of TF2 without being held back vs. the pro-geeks. It would make the achievements also more meaningful. Maybe give away the unlocks once all classes are updated or just vary the cost based upon how often you play the game. Maybe for every day/week that you played and got at least 1 achievement that you get a few bonus unlock points so you don't have to play a lot and get lot's of achievements to get the unlocks.

    Sound interesting but why are they charging for something that used to be free until Valve bought the rights?

    What used to be free? TFC or rather TF:Quake? I think that Valve has added enough to the whole game and invested enough in development to be allowed to charge for it. TFQ may have been an excellent free mod, but modders couldn't keep putting out this kind of quality content regularly for free, made in their spare time. Just be happy for those modders that Valve has hired so they can improve their skills in a favorable environment and get paid for it.

    Its a completely different game, you can only compare the two on rough idea and name really, i mean all teh calsses style and whole idea behind things is different. Its like comparing fallout 3 to fallout 1, there the 'same' thing in name but completely different experiences.

    i couldn't begin to tell you how many pyro's i killed who came after me thinking they'd get a free kill.

    Many claim the force of nature is broken b/c the reload is way to short or it's too underpowered, let's see you spend more 50% of your time reloading the damn thing, the only thing that probably rivals that is the rocket launcher, except the rocket has that potential to score a kill each shot; maybe but it's enough to kill any class except a heavy, soldier, demo, backburner pyro in one clip. That's another merit it only takes 2 shots instead of 3-4 shots. The knock-back is too underwhelming,almost non-existant,(it stacks tho) to be practical.

    I still need more practice with it, but I love taunt killing snipers just too funny.

    KoenVdd & Vimesey. I thought they were charging for the update (xpak type thing). I didn't know the $9.99 was for the full TF2 game.

    Team Fortress Forever is a fun and quality mod just doesn't have a big name label.
