Hey Ken. Saw you playing yesterday, but it seems like you were having a blast at goldrush or whatever map that was. Are you into any of the DM games (insta-spawn)?

I had a ton of fun at goldrush yesterday. once I have unlocked all of the weapons I go back to playing the normal maps (especially 2fort or goldrush). I think that tf2 is a hard game to make maps for because every class has to be useful in one way or another. I do like insta-spawn but I don't require it. the 20 spawn time is a good incentive to try to stay alive:)

I play the Heavy fairly often, and I do agree that Heavies are fairly weak without a medic and at long range, but I've had some really funny kills where I kill someone from across an arena with the minigun. Those were great...

"Holy crap, that Heavy just killed me from the other side of the arena!" :rofl:

I say this because, it pretty much IS useless without a medic, and even WITH a medic his damage isn't that much compared to lets say a Demo-man.

My basic strategy was just "Uber the heavy, rush in. Total chaos, and take everything out."

Now its changed to: "Uber the Demoman, have him sticky everything in sight, and KABOOM before uber runs out and dies"

Lately, the Demo-man has had huge success.

Valve seems to know the heavy is somewhat of a pussy without a med behind him. On the TF2 blog http://www.teamfortress.com/ they are talking about what they are trying to do with the Heavy update.

Oh, and my steam id is Megapreacher and play under x†Preacher†x usually am on for a little bit every night would love to get some CAG's together to get down and dirty in some Team Fortress

My problem right now is that I'm temporarily in europe (Finland to be specific) so I probably don't play at the same time as most of the people here.

Don't agree. The demo and heavy have distinct roles. A heavy without a medic is kind of screwed, however, you can still contribute to the team.

The prob is as with a lot of classes: people don't know how to play the heavy. You have to not only pick your spots as a heavy, but you've got to think ahead. You can't just leave sasha spinning and stroll around. It's run to where the action will be, spin, kill, retreat. Run to another place you think the action will be, spin, kill, retreat, so on. Yeah, it's slow going, but you get a BFG in return.

When I find a heavy who actually runs to the front when I announce as a medic over voice chat, 'hey, i've got an uber, let's move ahead and take out those sentries', I usually come back to that heavy pretty often. It's amazing how easy it is to play well in TF2 if others around you are playing well. So many people playing heavy would play much better if they just stopped spinning/firing sasha for a second and listened to the team.

I can agree that the Heavy is pretty useless by himself for the most part, he gets hit a lot and is slow to get to the closest medpack, but I'll strongly disagree with him being useless when he has the Medic on him. The Heavy tanks like a bitch unless a crit comes flying, takes out sentries just fine depending on the situation or placement, takes care of most people he gets the jump on, etc. I will say he's situational but most of the classes in TF2 are with the exception of Soldiers, Demoman and Medics.
