!Tip Of The Day 59 (3) | Posted on July 9, 2012, 10:30 a.m.
You say that sarcastically, but I've seen engineers that never use their pistol.
!Tip Of The Day 59 (1) | Posted on July 9, 2012, 10:27 a.m.
Do not underestimate the Engineer's pistol. Although each shot only does around 10 damage, the rate of fire is quite high, and can take out many unsuspecting opponents.

Tune in tomorrow.

Soldier + Soldier can bombard the heavy/medic while hardly taking damage so that.

The best feeling with the Sniper is actually headshotting a rocket jumping soldier, reducing him to like 20 health, and then watching him crater.

I don't think it'd be worth the time and effort. I could always just add a single letter or something.

I changed the title because someone posted a topic with the exact same title a couple of days ago. You apparently can't make a topic with the same name as another topic. I didn't know that until a moment ago, hence the title change. This is not going to be a lasting thing.
Authentic Tip Of The Day 58 (1) | Posted on July 8, 2012, 1:26 p.m.
On pl_upward, while defending and in the second spawn point, there is a short cut on the upper right balcony that takes you almost next to red's first spawn point. It closes after the cart has reached the penultimate point.

Tune in tomorrow.

Idea for autobalance (3) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 3:38 p.m.
That's a dumb idea. Bots are terrible at the game, and teamstacking would turn whole teams into bots.

The soldier has guns and can hurt you with his guns. But if you kill him first, he can't.


That's not technically true because you can be hit with a rocket even if the soldier that fired it is dead. Try again.
Tip Of The Day 57 (4) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 11:24 a.m.
What? This tip is for players who might have trouble tackling a sentry, not for the engineer who makes the sentry.
Tip Of The Day 57 (1) | Posted on July 7, 2012, 11:21 a.m.
Although the Engineer's sentry can shred any class in a matter of seconds, remember that it's immobile and can't be healed unless the engineer is right next to it.

Tune in tomorrow.

You're missing the point of tips. They are usually small little bits of information that HELP PEOPLE.


I have seen at least one Engineer place his sentry somewhere incredibly open in the past month. There is a percentage of players that do not know this. Are you claiming otherwise?


Not a single one of those bad Engineers will ever visit this board, or anywhere to help improve themselves.


How do you know that? Do you know how many people "lurk" this board? The answer is no.

It's like being patriotic. If someone was smearing poop all over your country's flag, you would be upset. This board is a country, and the Tip of the Day is poop on the flag.

Actually, I'd just think that whoever's doing the smearing is an idiot.
So yeah, that metaphor still applies here.


Tip is poop. BM is smearing.


SnookiLuvr, I don't know who you are or why you are so indignant towards my tip of the day topics, but I will not cease simply because you don't like them. There will be a tip of the day 57, 58, 59, 60 and so on. Try to take solace in the fact that I am only making 365 of these topics total.

I am optimistic. I know there have been parodies of my threads in the past, but I remained eternally hopeful. I clicked on the topic, realized that it was of low quality, and shot off a quick post. For the third time, I do not see the problem: If the OP of this thread makes another topic similar to this one I will not even click on it.


Wait.... You KNEW this was a spin-off of your thread, that have been just as bad in the past as your threads? I will not refer you to your own argument AGAIN, since it fits even better now.

I knew or at least thought it was a parody of my tips, but I can still expect quality from imitation topics. See: riverdude's Professional Tip Of The Day topics.

Take your own advice. Don't post in topics you don't like.


I didn't know the content of the topic until I clicked it. I can not see the future, for all I knew this was an informative and helpful topic. When I found out that it was just a jab against me, I made a single post. I don't see the problem here: If OP makes another thread like this I won't post in it.

Start naming the topic "Small Tip Of The Day" so people don't enter here thinking they will get impressed. I also get mad when you post senseless things (falling count as a jump), but many people bash more than necessary.


I don't think that level of clarification is necessary. A tip is generally a small tidbit that you may not know. I agree that there were some metaphorical lemons in the bunch, such as the falling counts as a jump tip that you mentioned, but that is the nature of having a daily tip.

If you're coming to the board, you probably have been playing for a while and know not to do this. 9/10 posters on this board know how to play.


My tips are for the 1 person who doesn't know how to play. I have said this multiple times. If you do not like the tips, stop clicking the topic. Easy, I would think, but it seems like every day there's at least one moron who thinks it's his sworn duty to eliminate these topics.

When using the stock Rocket Launcher, do not directly aim at your targets. A quick sidestep can evade most rockets fired this way. Instead, fire at the ground next to them.

Oh. Why were you expecting them? Could it be that you knew you were playing badly?


It was the expectation that some ass-hat would assume that I only ever run slowly and only ever shoot with scatterguns from that distance. It's not even the fact that everybody takes potshots, or, god forbid, slows down with a Scout; it's that such a short clip gives no indication as to what a person does over the course of an average match, and to think so is entirely stupid.

I can assure you I play Scout just fine, especially as he's probably my favourite class, I'd say.

In the case that you were trolling, well done; you got me.

From: CopShow Guy | #011
Best use of the High Five taunt I've seen to date!


Yeah, it was lucky the Spy was there and had the taunt. Makes the clip doubly awesome.


LOL, I wasn't implying that you are a perpetually lousy player: I was just asking why your playing habits were slightly off. I certainly did not interpret it that way.
