    So, I'm new. I guess. Some of you may know me from ubercharged.net, and most of you probably have never heard of me. I've been playing TF2 for a while (84 hours as engie, 72 as Spy, LPC is soldier at 28 hours), and I recently (meaning when I saw the swamp pack) decided to properly get into mapping. My last endeavor into mapping was more than two months ago, and the farthest I got was making a halfway working spawn and a broken control point. Needless to say I am very new to this (although I'm extremely perceptive and a fast learner).

    Anyway, I hope to stick around for a while. I love the maps that come out of this place. Glacier in particular is one of my new favorites, along with ctf_orient.

    Yeah, I noticed that. Completely coincidental. Although I do have Pyrit on my friends list. :x

    Hi. I've played on the ubercharged servers. Guys aren't impressive, but they don't suck.

    Although when I read the first article on the front page, I was like "o_O People still think the pyro is OP?" (Totally is, but for different reasons.)

    Well yeah, I mean we aren't a competitive clan...Or a clan at all, really. Just a community.

    I myself maintain a relatively consistant K/D of .75

    Egads Shadow, talk about timing!

    Me and a few others have been trying to get more customs on UC2 (regulars/UK server). UC1 has the most customs out of the 3 servers, though. Redfort was a favourite for a while, but I personally didn't play it much.

    PS: as for the 'Pyro still OP' article, it's really just the opinion of the contributor. There's tons of them now, so you do get a diverse number of opinions at times.
