Things that grind your gears in TF2

Postby Snowbat on Wed Jan 29, 2014 8:14 am

First of all, this is a light-hearted topic. Don't take it too seriously and keep it general. Don't be calling names on nobody :)
What are things that really grind your gears when you're playing?

- When being Medic, you follow that little text balloon that comes up when someone calls for one only to find that a fully healed Sniper standing in the background was the one calling you. Y U DO THAT?
- When being Pyro, seeing a teammate on fire calling for a Medic and effectively frantically running away from you. "Stand still you! I'll extinguish you dont run away!"
- When being Medic, having a Sollie asking you to über him... only to see him rocketjump out of reach when you do.
- When being Medic, getting repeatedly backstabbed when you have several Pyro's on your team doing no spychecking whatsoever
- When being Demoman, detonating a sticky trap you placed carefully in a doorway when a teammate comes through. Scumbag reflexes...
- In MvM, being facestabbed by a horde of Spybots
- Sniperbots in MvM. They really seem to hate Demomen (and I'm usually Demo in MvM)
- In MvM, trying to use the Rescue Ranger to teleport a Sentry away from a Sentry Buster but for some reason, it doesn't respond even if you have enough metal

Add yours :)

Arg I hate it when that happens, I also hate it when people stand in your sentry so the retrieve doesn't register :x

My list would be:
    Noticing that your teams only Engie is set up in their own intel room on 2fort.
    Noticing that 50% of your team has changed to sniper just to get revenge on one good sniper.
    Noticing that all the snipers mentioned above have failed and have changed to spy.
    People who insist on playing as scout, without bonk atomic punch, when there are several sentries around.
    Soldiers that camp the battlements on 2fort (in any given situation this is annoying).
    People who continually hit you in the setup period with a weapon that happens to have a comical sound (pan, fish, bottle etc.).
    Anyone who uses the Pomson and/or the mini sentry.
    Medic's that insist on using critz, quick fix or the vaccinator when a normal uber is needed.

The list goes on but I should probably end it there :roll:

Being trickstabbed by a spy-bot in mvm. Some of those stabs couldn't be done by humans. These are normally more funny than annoying.
People who run away at the end of the round as Blu on payload to hide. - Seriously makes my blood boil why people won't just throw themselves at the cart especially when it's close, die like a man, not cowering in a corner!
Anyone who plays to make their stats look good, and as a result let down team-mates.
110 Health snipers taking that health pack when you're a 3hp burning medic without the Kritzkrieg.

Crit Stickies, the sticky bomb launcher shouldn't be allowed to be kritzed. would make for much more interesting play.

- pubstompers (generally one or 2 people joining a low level pub server for the sake of showing off and have some easy kills on new, less experienced players, and who also may happen to have quite a big ego)
- people bragging about being comp players all the time
- disgruntled veterans who blame everything on F2P "noobs"
- spybots on MvM
- showoff Spies who will try every trickstab to get you and brag about it
- players who dictate other players how to play when it's not really needed
- people who take health packs when you are Medic and healing them and you are wounded
- (sticky) spawn camping on maps such as harvest, nucleus etc
- random crits, especially crit stickies
- people who will tell other people to NOT play for the objectives
- players who smash their E key and complain when the team's Medic isn't glued to them
- Medics who think their ubercharges are only worthy of a few mysterious chosen players
- taunts

edit: sorry if I haven't been too general, I just wrote down the first things that came to my mind. I can remove some if needed :)

Vaccinator medic with bullet resistance healing danger shield snipers. Although, that's just too sad and too ridiculous to grind gears.

I'm mostly on 2fort, so some are specific to that map.

  • Danger shield snipers who run away to replenish 40 hp, let alone a headshot. If you already have an extra life, do you need two or more?
  • Pyro flare spam across the map.
  • Soldier cow mangler spam across the map.
  • Friendly engineers building teleporters on the stairs next to spawn.
  • People telling others how to play, and they themselves get 4 points per round as demo.
  • Yelling spy, throwing piss at said spy, yelling spy, chasing said spy, yelling spy. Nobody notices.
  • Noticing nobody is playing a class, switch to that class. 3 lives later, notice 5 people playing that class.
  • Friendly pyros with handicapped mice (congenital lack of a right button). Burned to death with two pyros looking at me the other day.

Noticed that with some cheaters, I guess it might be a feature.

People not standing on the point/cart.

People complaining about how bad their team is without taking action to solve the problem and/or not communicating with their team.

Airblast.
Hats.
Useless weapons.
Snipers.
Airblast.
Huntstman snipers especially.
demoman shield things.
people not completing the objective.
anybody who thinks they're pro.
hats.
items drops.
crates.
keys.
hats.
AIRBLAST.
Most things added since 2010 (I don't know the name of most weapons nowadays...) except backburners, level 3 dispensers & teleporters and kritz. Everything else is a distraction.

As well as many of the ones above...

- When I have a full charge but no one looks like they're interested in using it
- When I use it and my target runs off in the wrong direction
- When my target doesn't instinctively know what I want him or her to do ;)
- Dropping my full charge. Again. For the 4th time in a row
- When I click the button a split second to late, and I'm either dead or left running around shiny on my own
- Medics who don't heal other medics. Personally, other medics are usually my number one priority on the triage list
- Heavies who don't carry & drop sandviches
- Pyros who don't airblast when I'm on fire
- People who open the door and let the enemy in
- When I open the door and let the enemy in, then hope no one noticed it was me ;)

One of the saddest things I've ever done.

Playing Heavy (understand I play Heavy very rarely)
Medic screams for sandwich
Take out sandwich
Press wrong button
Proceed to eat sandwich in front of medic. Nom nom nom.

Fortunately the medic was a friend so all he did was laugh. I felt bad.
