    I've met quite a few comp players, and it seems like the TRUE professionals are usually not douches, but the lower tiers of comp players have a serious case of unwarranted self importance.

    Basically the same as people on console that feel like the master race because they play gamebattles. It doesn't matter if they lose, they play comp so they are better than you by default!
    That annoys me. People who probably get destroyed on tf2lobby that act like every match is some sort of ESEA-I match and makes excuses for every damn death or loss they get in a pub, and is very often seen with a personal buttmedic that refuses to heal anyone else because they're scrubz!!!

    It's kind of ironic to see someone go all "lolol u pub scrubz r so bad stop playing" while struggling to stay afloat in that very same pub

    Please note I personally never implied all comp players are dicks.
    It's a vocal minority that gives them the reputation of being NO FUN ALLOWED people and it would be ignorant to not acknowledge that.

    My point at least was: That vocal minority annoys me, partially because I simply despise vocal minorities that gives groups a bad name

    Tbh, comp players are fine with me

    Gives me a nice challenge, feels REWARDING when I kill them!

    Reminds me of the time I was playing a mario cart server, for old times sake. There was this one wanna-be pro soldier on the enemy team, and I was scout (Dont play scout often, like i've said before) So I was running around, killing snipers/everything, doing pretty good, when I dominate this soldier and he grabs his little microphone. "Oh yeah, running around shooting people takes lots of skill" (Says the soldier ). He continues accusing me of being horrible at the game even though Ive been dominating him for the past 15 minutes.

    Then he left and I laughed.

    if you see a "comp player" that is nothing but a sack of trouble and gets wiped all over the floor, it's not actually a "comp player". There are other names for these people.

    most of the actually good folk don't say a word and probably won't even play on your favorite server anyway.

    A fair number of skilled players play on the servers I frequent. Besides, even pro comp. players enjoy a good pubstomp every now and again.

    that's pretty reasonable if you have autoreload on because some weapons literally take up the entire screen in their animation (cough revolver cough)

    Well, if I were to disable viewmodels, I'd also make all world textures plain grey, and use custom player models that would be practically visualised hitboxes. If I'm shooting an invisible gun, screw common sense, we're going full tryhard.

    I like playing with viewmodels off.

    Whenever I hit somebody with my melee I feel like I've punched them out.

    I also prefer it when I use the Direct Hit.

    Did not know that, thanks. Fun Fact: In that picture, there was a third sentry just out of view. If I remember correctly, it was right next to the other two until its engineer picked it up.

    I hate how some of the paint is just a TINY bit off from what I want.

    Like, I really want them to have a purple paint that is halfway between the Purple we have and Pink as Hell, just so I can paint my Professor's Pineapple. Shit'd look amazing all glowy and bright purple, but the color looks so muted, I'm afraid it'd just blend into everything else.

    Gotta say, it looks pretty good in Lime though (and it makes sense, considering it's meant to be radioactive glowing science fluid).

    Depends, there are good competitive players and there are bad ones too. The medic in my team played his first competitive match after just one hour of playing TF2, and by that point he most likely wasn't that good.

    It would be equally rewarding to kill a good pub player. Sometimes I meet pub players that completely dominates me, and when I check if they play competitively, it turns out they don't.

    No one will trade me a rocket jumper, even if I have two reclaimed for it, and I have already tried trade servers.

    Trade servers are god awful. I joined one that was trade_minecraft_b38(?), and they said "No killing friendlies in the nether room or kick" and anybody with a half of a brain followed it. And even though like 3 people wouldn't follow, they didn't kick them at all after people had repeatedly said to kick the people who didn't follow what the admin said. Since I was fed up with it, I said it was a horrible server with idiot admins that didn't fuck all about the people killing "friendlies", and left.

    So yeah, fuck trade servers

    He then proceeded to abuse me non stop in the server over the mic to either give him my BMOC or trade it for a saxton hale mask. Eventually 5 mins in (well after I muted him) he was perma-banned. Still pretty annoying though, I ain't selling my sexy spy outfit. (Bmoc, white spats + Dr Whoa)

    Peeve #1: Lazy Engineers who leave their Dispensers right at the spawns.

    They sit there with their Sentries, which also happen to be at the spawns expecting every Harry Heavy and Sally Spy to waltz by dead. Clearly, the concept of placing Dispensers somewhere useful is out of the question.

Well, as a powerhouse of melee, how will I do this! I know! I'll get into a position where I might be able to taunt kill them around a corner! LOL!
