The number one thing that really makes me rage in TF2 is the 'weapon-reload' animation. It's afflicted by a tiny, and incredibly annoying bug, that nobody seems inclined to fix. Put simply, if playing as Medic armed with one of the syringe guns, or as Sniper with the SMG, when you fire off your magazine and then reload, it doesn't always let you empty the magazine again before the reload sequence starts without you telling it to. It's got me killed loads of times because it means I stop fighting to reload a gun that wasn't empty.

And now for some light music.

Can't you just turn auto-reload off in the options? :scratch:

Properly iffy looking spy stabs, facestabs and corner stabs that on your screen look like the spy is nowhere near that huge hitbox on your back but on their screen they've jumped round you and stabbed you or you've looked round or something, something millions of reasons these stabs happen but when they do it's funny but also slightly annoying as you know there is almost nothng you can do about them apart from staying far, far away from any spies, always.

THIS!

Also;
- Constant teamstacking map after map
- Unable to change weapon because of votemap and dying
- Voting for wrong map while changing weapon
- When playing medic: Dying with a full ubercharge, when you know you've actually used it in time
- When playing sniper: Snipers who have a medic glued to them, taunting you after first kill
- When playing pyro: Chasing a spy at a staircase, fully aware of the the backstab tactic, ready to airblast, and still get backstabbed
- Those dodgy backstabs which are actually sidestabs
- When playing red, group of engineers who build in the tunnel at Dustbowl stg1, but don't cover the point. Also when defending at Dustbowl stg3, engineers who get cocky when the team is doing good and moving their sentries from to point to push, leaving it open for spycap.
- Random crits, random crits, random crits!

P.S. About those people who cry medic when there's nothing wrong with them. Well sometimes you just wanna get out of spawn as soon as possible and you accidentally push "E" instead of "W". Sorry... :oops:

Don't know how I missed this one:

Teammates acting like spies and running away from you for miles, without pressing left click a single time.

Why do you do that? Why?

People who sit way way back behind their lines to charge up kritz/uber with medic and then rush in, retreat and keep doing that without actually going for the point but instead trying to gather up points for themselves.

Players who say "2ez", text binds and snipers who taunt when they get a hs while way back in spawn.

I do that a lot, but not to gain points, to keep the uber safe. Sometimes (like the 1st point of dustbowl, stage 2, when playing blu) you get a lot of demo spam and enemy snipers have quite a good view, so it's best to just stay in spawn and overheal everyone until the charge is full.

Just wanted to make that clear :mrgreen:

A proper pocket medic does that, you know? :wink:
Keep everyone buffed and healthy, uber/kritz one person who knows what to do (or more if available) :D


And about a list of things...I might have a looooong one..

Maybe if you'd heal the people in the front lines, that would be more useful?

The first one!!!

I ended up air blasting a regular UKCS player forward into our base because he would retreat as the uber started to run out.
Not playing for his team at all; just going for stats :(
He didn't expect the air blasting though :D

Couple of other things I can add to my first list:

- Having 5 Snipers on my team, especially when you're BLU and supposed to attack. And stop calling for a Medic you idiots. Snipers are the lowest on my priority list. I'm hardly gonna drop a Heavy pushing just to heal your camping ass.
- Medics that don't heal other Medics. Friendly Medics should be highest on your priority list really
- "We need a Medic in our team. Someone go Medic plz"... says the 5th Sniper.

He's technically right. If you can aim with crossbow it's far better than any other primary. There's nothing better than crossbow airshot.

You should be using the Medigun/Quickfix/Kritzkrieg/Vaccinator 95% of the time. Your primary is only to escape quickly.

Nah, you should be using crossbow/kritz/ubersaw 24/7. Anything else and you are not considered to be a medic.

Crossbow is much better as a primary because it's actually useful, unlike the remaining 3 syringe guns. Nothing can beat a healing arrow from across the map.

Normal uber is useless as well unless you're pocketing a heavy or pyro (lol), kritz will always be better than uber. Most of the sentries are build poorly meaning you can solo them as a demo.

My 5p.

When there are admins online here on UKCS and they don't do nothing to the ones who are using the TF2 glitch when players appear doing a taunt while actually playing. Which doesn't allow the other team to see where they aim, which way they are looking at, are they reloading or not, etc. In my opinion it's a cheat and those should be banned.
At the same time those same admins kick/ban people using a spray where there's just an image of a player, just because those admins have made fools of themselves mistakenly shooting at this image.
