    I just played 2 rounds on doublecross map as spy. I managed to cap the first and third intel on first round while also dominating someone. He got his revenge and domionation as the BB Pyro, which gave one of them a reason to taunt me, even though most of the other team had barely 4 or 5 points at the time.

    I finally managed to get my revenge on that bastard with übersaw's crit. And the next time I met him, I critted his ass again!

    Feels good man.
    I'm that sniper. :smug:

    I had a feeling duncan would be with me on this. I'm also 99% sure the backburner isn't even banned in most competitive leagues. It's just a shitty weapon. :geno:

    Leagues ban weapons because they're unbalanced in a 6v6 format. For example, they recently banned bonk, sandvich, and sleeper. In pubs, those are either balanced or considered useless in comparison to their vanilla counter parts or some other unlock for the same slot, but in a 6v6 format, they're unbalanced and just not fun to play against.

    Common misunderstanding: Leagues ban weapons to keep matches FUN and FAST. Weapons that slow the game down and are not fun to play against are banned to keep everything enjoyable for the player and the viewer.

    Don't be so ignorant. :\

    How the hell is Bonk unbalanced?
    Or the ScoRes, a general downgrade in comp when jumping (a pain with the Resistance) and quick spam are so important.
    Or the DH which is useless against people with a spacebar who can avoid just about ALL damage.

    Sleeper is good against heavies when it's a pain to fully charge for one but a 6v6 sniper should be good enough to do better with headshots against the cookie cutter setup.
    Kind of okay with a sleeper ban because it's a travesty of a weapon. NO HEADSHOT SNIPER ugh
    I for one do think Jarate and Milk should be banned, though. It's shenanigoats to throw a jar of piss and take a rocket + two long range shotgun pellets to down a medic.

    Since the pistol is pretty shitty, you really aren't trading much for bonk. What it provides FAR outweighs the pistol. A friend was once dared to list 20 uses for bonk. He listed 32. I kept his list for fun.

    Code:
    checking if they're running a sniper
    checking if they're running a heavy
    checking if they're running an engineer
    seeing if they have two scouts and sollies
    checking for sentries
    distracting sentries
    checking for kritz
    living through kritz
    checking sticky traps
    getting past sticky traps
    checking positions
    looking around corners
    bodyblocking
    distraction
    pushing through a choke without uber
    pushing through a choke with uber
    getting through spam safely
    getting out of a spawncamp
    getting behind a team with impunity and without risk
    timing crit heals
    picking people out of position
    pushing last
    opening doors for snipers with no risk of being picked
    hiding behind a team, picking someone, then bonking out
    bonk as they're pushing mid, free backcap
    escaping from failed flanks
    escaping from failed backcaps
    escaping from bad midfights
    escaping from failed pushes
    escaping from failed holds
    escaping because you blow and were in a terrible position but lived anyways because you have soda that makes you invincible
    making people mad
    Most of these are kind of redundant or just silly, but a lot of them are pretty legitimate uses of bonk in 6v6 and considering the only thing you lose is that piss poor pistol, it's a pretty unbalanced trade off.

    Or the ScoRes, a general downgrade in comp when jumping (a pain with the Resistance) and quick spam are so important.
    Or the DH which is useless against people with a spacebar who can avoid just about ALL damage.
    I didn't even talk about those.

    Sleeper is good against heavies when it's a pain to fully charge for one but a 6v6 sniper should be good enough to do better with headshots against the cookie cutter setup.
    Thanks to the faster charge time, a sniper with the sleeper can quickly charge shots to one shot the scouts and the medic, as well as tag the power classes, leaving them extremely easy to pick off for the scout or whoever happens to be in good position to deal with the poor bastard who is lit up AND takes 33% extra damage. The fact that they don't even have to try for headshots just makes it even worse.

    Oh boy here we go again.
    Yeah, here we go again. Conflict. Don't you just hate when people talk about weapon balance? Let's keep hurp durping about June 21st.

    People need to learn the difference between perfectly civilized weapon balance and drama.

    The scout pistol is the second best finisher in the game (after soldier shotgun).
    12 boolets at 10-15 damage per shot (while escaping at mid range) is perfect for downing a med or demo after two scatter shots.

    That's a good list but escapability and checking for various obstacles an unbalanced weapon does not make.

    I gotta go jerk some chicken, the grill's hawt

    If you can't aim, why are you playing as the bloody Sniper?

    Yeah, but then the pistol's horrible spread makes it miss half the shots, if that few.

    And thirdly:

    The pistol would be good if the spread wasn't so awful.

    And yes, turning a situation where you trade a kill for a death into just getting a pick and running back to your team is unbalanced in 6v6.

    Yeah, because this topic was about the 21st and not funny pictures.

    I suppose it doesn't matter any more now, though. We were overdue for a Weapons Balance: Text edition v2, I suppose...

    I tend to stand firm when I argue. I don't pussyfoot around and say "well, that's, like, how I feel... but whatever you think is fine too." If I come off as an asshole, well, sorry. That's just how I argue.

    Well the general chat thread has degenerated into that. I'll never understand why people get so upset about a minor thread derailing to the point where they decide to shit post as well and complain.

    I can't make headshots is the real problem. Body shots are easy, since that's what you do with 98% of the weapons in the game.

    Yeah, the Sleeper kind of defeats the purpose of being a Snipah ('boom headshot pwnt' part, at least), but I think it's really helpful to a team, since being Jarate'd stops enemies from charging when they usually do, allowing that cart push/cap to happen with little casualties, along with other aspects.

    Plus, I use the Croc-o-Style set (which requires the Sleeper) to give an edge against other Snipers.

    I really think that reaction images are overdone and that last panel would have been better without it.

    but that aside, it's a good story and that is the reason I occasionally roll shotgun heavy.
