"listen i know women are getting harassed and threatened on a daily basis in this industry and it gets worse every day and that’s really bad but can we talk about corruption in games journalism" who fucking cares
Any tips for classes you play comp - pyro, Medic w/e else?
Sorry I was taking so long - I had a bunch written down and then GXL was still happening. This is gonna be relatively brief.
Scout - Buffs are life. Live life at 185. Always capture points. That’s the name of the game - but when pushing last, you want to make sure that no one can just obliterate everyone on point because you clumped up. Nono. Kill people Then capture lasts.
Soldier - Buffs are also life. Know when to counterjump / jump - and make sure that you leaving the Medic doesn’t mean the Medic is alone; meet up with a Scout or Demo first.
Pyro - Spycheck; think before overextending; don’t be aggro if you’re on defense, unless it’s a forward hold; don’t be afraid to W+M1 even if people are going to judge you for it; only use flare gun if you’re super sure of your ability - close up shotgun shots can do ~89, 1 flare can do 90. 89*6 > 90.
Demo - Set traps; provide spam; rely on stickies; if you have a trap set or you’re spamming from long-range or at a choke, use pipes; also save pipes for emergency, close-up situations.
Heavy - Prioritize Medic with Sandvich, but you can give it to anyone else; Support a push by providing cover fire. Your long range chip damage will do a lot of 3s, but that’s better than nothing; but don’t try to snipe a sniper pls; you’re a damage sponge, so throw your weight tactfully.
Engineer - Yell at people if you’re not getting the metal you need; don’t put your teleporter or dispenser in highly vulnerable places; use the max range of the mini; don’t leave yourself super vulnerable when placing buildings.
Medic - Know your heal / buff order, spread heals, call your percentages and advantages, call for people to stay with you, learn how to maincall unless you have a pocket to do that - ESPECIALLY WITH PUSHES. POSITIONING IS SO KEY IT HURTS.
Sniper - Learn those sightlines - prioritize the sniper over the Medic (I’m not a great sniper, so that’s about it)
Spy - You don’t have to go for only the big targets. If you take down lower-priority classes, that’s good too because you leave the enemy team with less support. Know your enemy by calling out what the other team’s using (Medigun? Kritz? Quick-fix? Backburner? Phlog? Spycicle?)
That’s about all I got. I’ll answer whatever else comes my way.
