Having a dedicated anyone may be taxing if your team doesn't want to cooperate, which is why I count on you/X/Sanders/etc. I do ask though.
I don't have the dispenser inside of the intel room because 1) the locker's right down the hall and 2) a 100 metal pack is right outside. Personally, having to go get additional metal isn't a big deal, but I hear your worries. I'm almost never away from the area unless it was like today, where literally everyone was battling in the water/sewers/entryways. Spies couldn't get by because it was such a huge battle, so Sanders and I went out and joined the pandemonium. But yes, standing by near your sentry = critical.
The additional part you added goes without saying for me I can't stay down there forever after all, so I use my teleporters to get around and sniff to make sure everything's chill.

Not much else happened.
A rather humorous situation on the orange map was when I was a Sniper, some people were doing laps around the tower on the outer path, so I would pickemoff and get silly results from the people I shot. I scored lots that day.

And that match on gravelpit was intense I tell ya. Best match I've played, I think, save for one game on a relatively low-latency Orange map with Deep once.

I think the best moment I had was making a medic flip head over heels after he jumped into the air.
Awesome work guys.

And it reminds me, I really need to get into a game with more than one of you guys sometime
EDIT: Oh wait, I did that once, when I was 1vs1ing with a friend and Fire Trucking Sabby and Haku and someone all piled on the server and shot my ping over a thousand. Yeah that sucked.

Couch Online might not be a good server to play on anymore. Sure, the guys are awesome and have the most inspiring conversations; however the lag there is terrible. For the first time in my TF2 gaming experience, I've found myself lagging so badly that I've almost cloned myself by walking.
I have a feeling it's that bad due to the Server's settings.

Regardless, we had an awesome team working with us.

We were almost always cornered to our final two CPs on Orange X3, and if we managed by some stroke of luck [me and another spy wooo] to take down enough of their defenses then people would cap the point only to have it taken away again because of the lack of dedicated people [and a seeming lack of fighting spirit]; if the opposing team clinched our number 2, then our sheer number of engineers [at one point during a rush, there were 5, and scarily enough four of them were level 3] would be able to hold the ubers off then our mixed offensive of pyros and heavies would lay waste to whomever dared to come and then a few moments later we'd take our number 2 again.
Classic example of people not cooperating. Me and this guy were Spies, and we were getting busy with the opposing team's engineers [which were like 3 or 4] because they were setting up camp all over the place. If we weren't doing that, we were taking out Snipers so our team wouldn't have been hampered so much [and luckily there was a respawn time or else laying waste to those snipers would've been in vain]. No one who was engineer wanted to stop being engineer, the one sniper slot was taken by a Hey, that kangaroo just took my ball. sniper who didn't want to give up his spot, and the two spies who would coordinate stuff [me and the other guy] got hammered down almost every time we stepped out because the engies clumped in groups and had one or two dedicated pyros.
It was fun messing with them though. I sneaked into their spawn locker a few times to take out their teleporters.
Speaking of which, those who have played on the orange maps- what's your opinion of entering the spawn room in order to take out teleporters? Personally, I have an honor code thing- go on in and zap the teles, then get out- no killing on your behalf. It's another thing when Engies, Scouts, and other things start making their way in imo.

Anyways, that sounded like a harsh match there mate. It is rather irritating how many players seem to not even care about the fact that the title of the game is "Team Fortress 2" and not "Me Fortress 2".

Sure, it could mean more wins on your belt, but at the same time... it seems like a dishonorable victory.
What say the rest of you?

I was playing a few rounds on Orange X3 until a female player liked my accent so much, she demanded I talk in the mic more. I changed servers, and she apparently ended up in the same server as I did, so I changed again...and again... SHE STALKED ME! GAAHH...
Before this incident, I played real well despite my sprained ankle which hurt like heck. For the first time I was on top of the scoreboards (on a team of 6) doing pickemoffs as a Sniper. It was lots of fun. =D

Today, I hopped onto the couch online, and was presented with a one sided battle in 2Fort. Our team was legit, as far as I could tell. However, the enemy team was once again identified having illegal players.
The usual was running amok... aim bots... constant crits (or he was a very lucky jerk)... and then came the Third Engie. As most of you who have played on this server may know, you may only have two engies at a time, unless you exploit a glitch in the map. They were taking advantage of this by having two SGs on the bridge, and leaving the third in their base.
What really killed it for me, however, was this guy named CowTipper. He came on and started spamming the microphone. Even though he was immediately muted, his spamming choked the server, and disconnected me. It's people like him where I want to know who he is, where he lives, and how accessible his Fire Trucking intestines are so I can pull them out of his bum and feed them to him.
What infuriates me about these people is that if you quit, they win. They win at ruining the game.
I spent the day working on making a TF2 map... it's rather plain and basic, but it works perfectly as a base for future improvements, and learning how to make maps.
Just copy it into your map folder for TF2 and make a server to play it on to take a look. Sprit and I are still hunting for a server to put it on to try it out.
