actually, yeah i thought about that later on, which could compensate for a small 3% reduction in scout speed

i've yet to see it used in a pickup game for the purpose of transporting heavy classes on Offense, i think people are reluctant to using this strategy since they are so used to TFC, obviously, a demoman can be very useful on offense but who knows. seems like people take even pickup games pretty seriously

arc, yes there's an equivalent console command (that you can therefore bind a key to) for everything in the on-screen menus (which we need to improve tbh..), if that's what you mean you want. there's probably a thread somewhere listing the common ones, and most are quite easy to guess using tab to autocomplete in the console if you know roughly what you're after. if there are any specific ones you want that you can't find then just ask and i'm sure someone will help.

lol Spy grenades.

Someone who has the wiki page for gas grenades should probably put it back up. Half the more popular servers have them enabled anyways.

Yeah that freaked me out the other day when I suddenly found myself in a cloud of gas spam.

At least they all had you to bring it to the development teams attention, what do you think will happen now?

Scuzzification will commence. Objections and support will be exchanged. My weiner will be flaccid. You will superfluously sign your posts.

I hate to tell you this, but they were gone for weeks before we testers even noticed.

Well then I guess you weren't testing the right stuff cause the day it was released, many people, including myself, noticed the spy gas grenade gone.

In my opinion the testing team isn't really made for or of public players, it's made for competative players. There also isn't the standard "test all functionality" type of testing you'd expect with software from the beta team, it's more of a "play if you find a bug let us know" direction. Combine those two elements and your observation is not surprising.

IMO bhopping is too easy in FF to warrant teleporters.
