They really messed up the spy with this update. Now you have to worry about which weapon you are showing. Bah, if it wasn't complicated enough already. They really need to get rid of the uber stun. The whole point of the uber is that it can't be stopped. Sure you can push it back with the pyro, but the stun just kills it completely. I usually never complain about updates like these, as they just add another element to the game play, but I think they really messed up the balance this time around. Either way I'm going on a two week TF2 break, as there are just way too many scouts these days.

I agree. Stunning ubers is retarded. Defeats the whole purpose of uber. Having pyro airblast contain ubers is good enough since pyros suck at anything else.

Why not?

I just passworded them so I don't get the general pub idiots.
Anyone with access to NCIX Forums can have access, so why not HWC?

A sticky in the gaming section with all the NCIX server info would be useful, or a link to the NCIX gaming site. Oh, and thanks for running those for us DH, definitely helped me get the scout achievements.

Which reminds me... I gotta update NCIXGaming. I've swapped a bunch of IPs for some of my servers.

I was on a public server yesterday and a few morons set up sentry guns at the respawn area, killing everybody when they respawned.
Took awhile but I finally got rid of them, it was a good map except for those idoits

I've only been playing two weeks. TF2 is my first multiplayer game I've played.
It doesn't take long to figure out how to kick their asses.
