I know the tf_weapon_criticals cvar is on the blacklist for Valve matchmaking (as well as some other really cool ones like fixed spread and damage spread) and therefore is unlikely to get touched for the server configs here.

But how do you guys feel about the randoms?

I personally think, that they are the bane of any good match and make the game for itself a lot worse. I hate getting random crit killed and I even dislike getting them myself for the most time. They feel unfair and disturbing to me. I don't understand why Valve blacklisted the according cvar for matchmaking. Is that even still true? Since that update with the QuickPlay Search, you can QuickSearch for server which have random crits enabled, afaik.
I just don't see the point for why they were put into the game and the algorithm that determines the probability of getting one makes no sense either. It's like "Oh hey, you just killed the entire enemy team? Here, have crits, so you can dominate them even more!".

Hi Faxter,

I like random Critz. I think they  add a random element that increases the emotions you feel during playing. When you get one and kill someone you totally didn't deserve to or whether you get killed 4 times in a row by random crit.

I agree it makes no sense for competitive play but the community is not just about that. If it were we would do all talk or all people to mess about with the holiday punch or ban mini sentries or band sandman on thunder mountain.

I think t hey shoulkd be disabled for competitive play, obviously, but I don't mind them so much. When I first started playing the game I disliked the introduction of a random chance effect that was so powerful, but it is balanced out more or less, and rewards good play - nothing quite so satisfying as getting random crits at the right time, and as frustrating when someone lucks out and kills you with a crit. Such is life!

Yes, most of the TF2 community consider them cheap, and I do agree they should be off for competetive play.
Otherwise I like how they give beginners a chance to wrestle with the old timers, even if it may not be by skill.

Is all we read there, but seriously random crits where put into the game and have not been taken away by the creators, competitive play; sure take them out, otherwise leave it as vanilla

I don't mind them, I've got used to them in non-competitive play, to be honest.

They can help to break stalemate situations (which is the main reason Valve decided to include them in TF2 if I remember correctly, especially after they decided to remove each class' hand grenades during development).

Sure, it can be annoying to die to a random crit, but such is the life of a merc!  Very Happy
