    Hi, I'm creating an off topic thread to answer questions thrown at me.

    Seriously, I'll try to answer any question anyone posts here. Related to TF2 or not.

    So get asking >_>.

    Should the backburner should get it's 50 health back, or at least 25?

    Can you describe (in detail and layman's terms) to me the way in which spys and hats work, ever since the addition of hats I've not worked out or been told a clear answer of if and when spies have hats.

    (actually tf2 related = bonus points)

    No, the backburner should not get HP back. It really defeats the purpose of using it for ambushing. Having more HP then a soldier and being able to live through 2 basically direct rockets would make him more of a tank. A solution for it involves an extra mobility move, probably a small leap forward with some speed gain from it during it would work. It could allow him to clear some areas you couldn't normally or get to ambush position with more ease, or catch up to your enemy.

    Never seen a zebra up close in real life, so I don't know! Probably white with black stripes, but I know its used to simulate the look of tall grass for predators.

    I die most often to boolets, so no D:

    These eyes aren't made for crying, they're made to detect enemy heat signatures through walls.

    Depends on what angle you look at it and your current hormone levels. For me the glass is half empty because I always want more more more! If you're talking about glass as a material, its generally full. Never half.

    Neither yes nor no is the answer to the question, as it isn't a yes or no question. Well, it can be, but in my case it is not.

    I'll try, although I'm not quite certain.

    Spies, when disguised, have no hats. So if you disguise as a spy, you won't have a hat period. The other classes I believe you do get the hat in the disguise, but I have not tested this.

    I'll get a friend with a hat and test this, and get back to you with an exact answer.

    I don't give bonus points for tf2 related.

    I think its fixed. I get close to my enemy anyways, so I'm not too concerned by it.

    YES. Its brilliant.

    Because HE wills it that way.

    Done, look up.

    Why does it take me 2+ seconds to torch any enemy player to death regardless of their class and current health level, but less than 0.5 seconds for an enemy Pyro wielding the standard flamethrower to burn me to the ground as any class? (I've tried it with bots, other players - it happens every time. I really don't get it...)

    Why does the Force-a-Nature consistently kill me in one clip when I'm a Heavy, but I have to fire no less than 6 shots from it to even get an enemy Scout down to 50% health? (Seriously, what the heck?)

    Why does TF2 occasionally register an enemy is dominating me after 1 kill or assist kill? (This may be a glitch. I've tested it and determined it really does happen, and behaves strangely - it plays the fanfare, says "X is DOMINATING PL-7764", and shows the "clashing fists" logo on the scoreboard next to the person dominating me, but it doesn't show the medal indicating how many dominations the player has. Revenge registers normally after I kill the dominating player once. This glitch never happens with people who already have 1+ dominations - it's always legit whenever they dominate me, which is all the time. :p)

    Why do I kill myself as soldier if I fire two rockets at a medic directly infront of me, yet if I'm a medic and I bluts a soldier while directly blocking his path, he kills me in two direct rockets and survives with half health?

    Why do I see one sticky fired out of a sticky launcher about 10meters away from me, then it blows me up as heavy, yet I can't kill an afk with 8 stickies surrounding him?

    Why do people call you a w+m1 noob if you kill them with the axe, and nothing else?

    Why do people keep asking so many questions?

    What?

    Where am I?

    Who the hell are you?

    The pyro is probably either very lucky, getting crits with backburner, or attacking you when you have about 150hp.

    You're probably missing with a good bit of the flames, as well as attacking them when they are overhealed.



    Your aiming needs work. That, or your internet may be lagging on it. What is your ping? Also, are you running vista? If you are running vista, a program called Vista Anti-Lag may help you.

    I would guess it deals with the kill tables locally TF2 uses. It may retain some from leavers, I don't know. Maybe the kills are just epic, so it counts it as a domination?

    Probably because you're missing as medic or soldier? I don't know man. I would guess its how you get to the medic in front of you being a rocket jump, whilst when you are blocking his path you're simply blocking a 200hp class. Not a smart move to do that anyways.

    His internet has dropped.


    People don't call me a w+m1 noob, but I would say it's the general hatrid of a pyro unless he reflectkills or longdistance flares someone.

    I don't know, but its hard to keep up.

    Huh?

    On a TF2 forum. Or at your computer.
