There's a lot of Hydro hate and it was created by Valve.

I think we have two decent one's in play right now (hoodoo or whatever it's called, and dbheights). They are not that polished but it seems the mass agree that they are fun. I know heights doesn't count much since it's just dustbowl on wheels but eh.

top tier:
cp_labour
cp_science/2
ctf_impact2
pl_hoodoo

good:
cp_aqua
cp_redstone
cp_steel (which is official now)
pl_dbheights

But we all know what it's like, no one likes a new thing to learn, been discussed 10,000 times etc.

I'm trying to activate the console, bound to the § key(next to 1), but nothing happens when I press it; why? =(

Also, use the right key. The ` key, not this wacky cast iron wall decoration crap.

This is my current goal text:
D:\Program\Steam\Steam.exe -applaunch 440 -connect 66.150.214.83:27015

And it didn't work when I tried it earlier.

No no, set the parameters in the steam game options, i.e. right-click on the game in steam and set them, when you do the applaunch it will automatically use the settings

edit: oh nevermind, I have it like that for one of my batches and it works, idk

have you tried:
D:\Program\Steam\Steam.exe -applaunch 440 -connect 66.150.214.83:27015 -console

I gotta say, despite the rolls, despite some of the bitching that goes on, when there's just a good fucking match between two well balanced teams, it makes me all warm in tingly inside. The dbheights game I was just in was an absolute blast.

While you don't want to die as any class, not dying as a medic is really important, especially when you're trying to build towards an uber. If the guy you're healing decides to be a moron and run into 3 sentry guns line of sight, don't follow. He'll die, you'll die, and the build you brought towards the uber will disappear. If you're low on health, inform your teammates you have to get a medic pack, retreat, and come back with full health. You're much more valuable to your team if you stay alive to dispense ubers more frequently.

Also, don't run in front of your healee. Especially if it's a heavy, stay behind and keep moving. Never stop. Look behind you frequently for spies. If you see a sniper dot, warn your healee to watch out. A fully charged sniper headshot will kill a fully buffed heavy. Stay behind cover if possible. If your heavy, soldier, demoman, what have you runs from behind a corner, stay behind the corner as long as possible to keep out of the line of fire.

Basically you need to be able to dodge incoming fire while still healing your target, but also be smart enough to know when that target is facing certain death and get the fuck out of there.

So, did my pals Jaster and Smaugsomething that I brought to the server act well or should I be wary to bring them back?

EDIT: I think it was Smauglet.

Jaster was a cool cat (I healed him for a lot of the 3rd round there). Didn't really notice Smaugsomething.

You have the game's largest SHOOT ME sign taped to your back.

Pretend you're playing a 3D SHUMP where you can't shoot and you'll do OK.

Also, taped to your face, your arms, and your chest.

Basically, run around, a lot. Try to keep to cover, and watch behind you. Once you're healing someone, as long as they're in range, you don't actually have to look at them. You can also check an option that allows it to keep healing without you holding down the mouse.

Danke, guys. I'll try to put that into practice next time.

Sorry I'm not on more. I can only do about one full game before I have to do work around the house and other stuff.
