We've switched servers and will be updating the old code over the next couple months, meaning that several things might break. Please report issues here.

HELLO TV TROPES!
Everyone join the EU server now! We got one blind Sniper and a Heavy on a 360 controller!

Sure when steam stops dicking around and lets me find servers.

Okay, but TF 2 is randomly crashing for me.

Sorry for the random disconnect, that was because of TF 2 crashing.

So just checking it out now, and the server list is telling me that I'll have around 450 ping. A shame, but not unexpected, coming from Australia.

Anyway, I'll be able to log on later to playtest it. Lookin' forward to playing with you guys.

Well, I hope I can get back on my regular , functionning computer soon and take revenge on you guys.

Was pretty much playing sitting duck there.
The Great Northern Threadkill.
I gave the server a try earlier, and 250-300 ping wasn't so bad with only 2 people. tongue

I'll try again in a little bit. Steam handle is High Rhulian.

I AM A GOOD SPY

I occasionally hit pockets of lag (as you could probably tell, because I'm pretty sure every time I hit one, Color Printer killed me before I reconnected!), but when it was running it was running really good. Looking forward to the US server.

I love jarate. Almost as much as I love that jarate sniper rifle.

HELLO TV TROPES!
Huntsman + Jarate + Bushwhacka = Win.

I was getting in the area of 160 ping, which isn't bad considering I live about 8000 km from Warsaw. It was mostly playable with just 4-6 people, but there were bits of lag every couple seconds. Granted, the net effect was probably a benefit for me; I doubt I could have been such a Scout-murdering machine had they not repeatedly failed to shoot me even when I was going full W+M1.

Payload Race was more fun than I expected, though it's probably a lot different with more people.

I have a piece of general advice: don't nominate Attack/Defense maps with less than 8 people total. Any less and the asymmetry of the map can really put one side at the disadvantage; generally where most of the other team dying wins BLU the point and only gives RED about 20-60 seconds until it comes again, or defense can easily camp on the last point indefinitely. I know it's balanced out by switching between RED and BLU, but both teams only winning when attacking or defending it boring.

Steel ended up being pretty fun with (for the most part) with 3 vs. 3, but it became clear RED could have won nine times out of ten from that point on by just having an Engineer build a level three Sentry near point C and guard it with two of the bulkier classes (Engineer, Heavy, Pyro). The room was so cramp it was impossible to attack the Sentry outside its range, and the team was so small that a Spy couldn't sap it or get any kills without a large amount of luck or incompetence on the part of the other team. The only thing that could have reasonably gotten through was a very-well planned Uber or an insanely skilled Demoman.

[up][up]I get plenty of mileage from the Sleeper, but when using the Jarate I have a hard time getting over the loss of the SMG. It would probably be easier if I could find people who would actually partner with me to take consistently take advantage of the damage boost and give some close-range protection.

The 4 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 2 games were pretty fun, I can't wait for the American server so we can get less lag and more people!

Edit: Hey everybody, my sister wants to join the server. She browses the site but can't have an account due to the fact that we're on the same IP. Would it be alright if I gave her the password and had her play some games? Her steam name is Fire Crystal.

Also, does the server update on its own? Cause there's an update out.

Throwing my hat in the ring for the server, and casting my vote for Tampa, or Dallas if that fails.

This hat doesn't fit!
So, I heard that Hamachi is needed.

I dunno, the Steam chatroom I'm in right now mentioned that I'll need Hamachi to join the server.
