Hm.

Well, I have yet to play Engie in MvM, so I guess I'll have to do some practice along those lines. Expect me to be unavailable for MT team play for a day or two as I experiment with Engie in bootcamp.

Yeah, that one was in fact evil. And to be fair, they managed to destroy us pretty quickly. But it was fun while it lasted (I think I have a screenshot of it somewhere.)

Pfft, experiment with the MT group man. No worries there.

But every time I've tried that, MT or non-MT, it's worked for me. My biggest pain in the *** has always been keeping that sentry up.

I'm going to have to try to duplicate this in a pub game vs. a bad team. That's lulzy.

One of our sillier setups- five sentries in a crossfire formation just outside the intel room:



To be fair, the one at the base of the spiral staircase was un-necessary and probably should have been upstairs. But aside from that, this was a totally unbeatable configuration. I don't think the other team scored a single capture on that round. Lots of ragequits.

How the hell did you sneak 5 engies past to set that up? Unless one of you somehow managed to deploy a level 3 teleporter and everyone went through carrying a level 3 sentry?

Fairly certain his image is of a defensive position around his intel. The other one he mentioned wasn't as elaborate and would have had a red logo on the floor?

you might win the rounds that way, but it's sooooo boring.

Yeah, this was a round where we got just absolutely silly with the defensive sentries, and created a formation that completely denied the enemy access to the area. They kept on nibbling at it with different classes, but nobody was able to get through.

In this screenshot, I am standing behind my own sentry, with the pistol in hand for spy-checking duty. My dispenser is directly behind me, so that I can continuously wrench on the sentry in the event that we are attacked. Note the MiataTurbo.net logo sprayed onto the wall at the right of frame.

So, victory is sometimes boring.

I can deal with that.

Joe, you should post the logo you use for us to spray. It looks so much better than any of the ones I have.

^This. I try to do it, but my logo isn't anywhere as nice as Joe's.

That was one hell of a haul from that game, Split. One hell of a haul! Too bad we didn't have 6 though :(.

I return to my PC to see a bunch of chat invites from Ant. Sorry I missed you guys tonight. On the plus side, my car now has two functional doors, so that's a good thing.

I got bumped off just as the swag screen was loading. I probably got hosed on the swag download. It started to say I got one item before it cut off.

The items are are tracked on Valve's end, so you probably got everything.

Nice game last night guys.

When the time clicked over midnight while we were on the last wave, after like 4 losses all I kept thinking was "Jeff better not say he has to go".

I did learn some useful tactics as the game developed. If I waited off to the side for the heavy that was following the tank to get engaged by you guys, he would then completely ignore me coming right up behind him and lighting him up. Same with the other two or three heavies that come right behind him. Once tehy are engaged from the front none of them will turn around.

I also made good use of the ubercharge and increased speed features once learning how to equip them. I initially didn't know I could change tabs at the top while at the store and upgrade things other than just in the weapon tab. Duh, learning curve.

The Rainblower has no real airblast, btw. I did try to use it a couple of times and it sputtered lightly and made little ripples but did nothing to the bomb. My other level 10 weapon has no airblast either.

Just to clarify, you cannot airblast the bomb as it lays on the ground. You have to airblast an enemy carrying the bomb. This is why sometimes you want to lure the enemy onto a bridge or equivalent to buy us more time. Its risky but if done right really helps.

Do you have The Back Burner? I got one in the haul last night, ill trade you.

As for the error, you should have been given the option to either keep whats on the cloud or push local data. Did you check your back pack and confirm the items are missing?
