    I was faffing about on the Rock Paper Shotgun server, hoping for people to join, and decided to see where I could get to as an engineer. I really like this spot, though it'd take a lot of work to get here in a real game I imagine:

    It turns out that all the roofs in Nucleus are accessible to engineers; there are some other nice nooks to build sentries up there, too.

    Yeah I've seen engies build around those spots (specially teleports), as well as demos, scouts and soldiers up there.


    ... and as a sniper that makes me ever so happy... That people would purposely move up to a spot with no cover... It's like Christmas.

    (Edit: Don't get me wrong, it's a good spot! Just very sniper friendly. But instead of dealing with demos you gotta deal with snipers.)

    I just realised that the rock in the background looks like an enormous nob!

    There is something quite poignant about that image.
