it is still random, even if ther's a higher chance of occurrence in certain situations.
For example: x means no crit, 0 means crit:


xxxx0xxxxx0xxxxxx000xx00xx0xxx -> x number of shots, y number of crits
00x0x0xx0x0xxx0xxx0xxx00xx0xxx -> x number of shots, y+3 number of crits
or another sequence:
0xxxxxx000x0x00x0x0xx0xxxxxxx0 -> x number of shots, y+3 number of crits

That is what it means to be random, you can't know next shot is going to be a crit, at most you can say that in x number of shots, y will be crits. So yes, it's random, it's the same kind of random like having a dice with 8 facets vs a dice with 10 facets. The one with 8 facets will get more chances of landing number "1" for instance. when you do 'damage and increase your crit chance' you actually exchange a dice for another. It's still random.

we could do more stuff to keep the actual community players happy, such as no crits or no random spread etc, and help cut down on the things that can annoy and give those who've been playing a long time burnout.

random crits \0/. One of the most irksome 'features'. Just last nite on a random crit server, medic-ing ,with a full kritz uber, on goldrush, defense, stage 3, first cap. I barely notice a crit demo pill and narrowly dodge it .. only to have it hit the ground behind me and 1-hit me from full health.
The demoman in question was spamming the choke from far away, near the blu side exit ...

old regulars have left and there just aren't as many to fill the server these days and keep the playing level all that high (though it's pretty good some nights..

Regarding THG servers, from the experience of starting the server from zero, what happens most of the time is that the newbies get siphoned into one team more than the other. The games that follow are not GG's. When the newbies ragequit, some of the ppl that come in are higher skilled, in a few more ragequitting cycles the skill level increases enough for GG"s to happen. That's when Precizion logs on :P

But ye, these days if I'm playing TF2 and want a gg I'm most likely to go to reddit servers. No random crits, autoscramble and much higher skill level on average, too bad they have alltalk on ... Sad
Otherwise skial servers have a good autoscramble that helps keep things more even with more newbies around.

, I am for keeping the server vanilla

I'd be careful about using the word "vanilla". Most ppl associate vanilla with default set of weapons, no unlocks.

I have a theory about random crits. They aren't actually random.

yeah .. I think they are random, it's just this pesky human brain that remembers patterns/things in a certain way as to make it seem like it's not random...

After completing Hell and ending A1 inferno with my wizard, I have to say that:


The difficulty ramps up quite significantly later acts, hell is tough, and inferno is .. well ... difficult.
Up to late hell normal mobs don't pose MUCH threat, and champ packs are more threatening, in inferno however normal mobs start to be a threat  (1-2 lil' cannon fodder weaklings smacking for 10k damage per swing after armor and all on a 30k life char... UUuuh ... )
Champ packs turn even more deadly, and require dedicated builds, kiting and patience to whittle down. And yes, besting a champ pack in inferno is quite a feat.

Here is my impressions after I switched my build around

Overall story

story: nice on the first play through
Later on it becomes annoying, the bad dudes can't seem to effin shut up and do their evul deeds, they NEED to inform me "Ha, I'm too late ... his plan is already in motion, while I was saving X he was already doing y" ... gah ...

Finally one annoying thing is the mobs seem to operate from a "threat" table, some fixate on you right from the get go, some fixate you after you smack them a bit while they are on your merc.

Lastly, bosses, while most bosses are push overs, in inferno the last boss in Act1 is behaving much like a boss in wow raids: enrage timer, scripted events, different phases of the fight, stuff on ground you need to get out off...and of course they fixate you down when you start smacking them

While most mobs in D3, and even champs = similar feel as D2, this inferno boss seems more like "wow 2". I wouldn't be surprised if D3 expansion featured pandas ...!

On a related note, on various servers I've seen more cheats in the last 3 weeks than my last 4 years of TF2 combined.

Speedhacks seem to be most common, then aimbots.

What they commonly do is purchase the haks, then make F2P accounts by the dozen, then they use one account for 1 day (for example) and troll a number of servers, then they swap to a new acc and can troll the same server ... etc. Also, most of the time the accs in question will have their profiles set to private.

PostForum: Servers   Posted: Tue Feb 28, 2012 8:21 am   Subject: Re: TF2 #3 Server - Mods + Modes ? - We need it populated
It needs 10 ppl to GET it going, autoscramble to KEEP it going, and "#3" removed from description. Server is fine otherwise

P.S. don't be fooled into thinking a special game mode, custom map, or wacky mod will "somehow" fill it up. It won't, guaranteed, 100%.

Edit: anatomy of starting up a random server:

1. O look, 0/24 players. What map is on? Wacky_custom_neverPlayed map. Oh ya...totally diggin' it..NOT! next server!
2. O look, 1/24 players. What map is on ? Dustbowl. Nice. tho...1/24 ... stinks of bot/plugin. I bet is really 0/24. Naa...not gonna join
3. O look, 3/24 players. What map is on? propmod? what is that? server
4. O look, 3/24 players. What map is on? Badwater. Nice. *join*.
4.1 We keep getting owned on red, badly. *ragequit* *ragequit*. 2/24...yeah...not gonna do 1v1? ...guess not...server is 1/24 again
4.2. O look, 3/24 players. Godlrush is on. Nice *join*. Good 15 minute round. 5/24 players. Good 10 minutes round. 12/24 players. filling up!
4.3. 20/24 players, gg. New map. Why do we get owned so badly? 15/24. The other team has dominations left and right. 10/24. Autobalance suks, it put me on the  looser team and i can't switch back. 5/24. Server is dieing, should bail. 1/24. 0/24.

meh, it just doesn't tickle my "Oh, this 1's gonna be as good as tf2" sense. I'll continue to be a skeptic 2 months after release. If it's still kicking strong I'll reconsider.

Judging his profile, he's a independent entity from the  "otaku" group the hacker is in.

"Otaku" is a Japanease origin word and it designates a person deeply interested into a non-mainstream field. In Japan it is usually associated with almost pathological addiction to anime and manga (manga = comic strip) going as far as rejecting any social interaction that has no connection to the mentioned areas.
His profile has lots of anime interests and apparently he's making his own manga

Coincidentally, a string search for "otaku" yields 1400+ players with otaku in their name. I think that dude is a preety harmless newb.
