The problem is that Valve seems to like it; they have been doing everything they could possibly do to harm the modding scene of their games for some odd reason. Or absolutely stall said scenes at the least.
There were so many changes to the weapon stats, to the classes themselves' stats, to the game's interface, that simply discouraged me to keep training.
Quickplay has been absolutely gone for a while; now you have casual matchmaking and competitive matchmaking, which I feel are rather pointless - everything is literally the same thing as before but with Valve servers being divided between casual and competitive.
Yet for Valve, those changes seem to merit a total change of the main menu's looks and functions, which not only absolutely ruins you if you play on the lowest screen resolutions to save some resources, it also has some severe glitches that even keep you from being able to use the console unless you join a server first. No one seems to complain about this so I assume it only happens if your resolution is low enough.
Lots of classic loadout combos and tactics were killed due to the so-called balance updates and all of the new weapons are simply useless, at least in my personal experience, and only serve to confuse you even further when trying to line up a consistent trio.
All of this without taking away the fact TF2 has always been an unoptimized mess, which is even more noticeable nowa-years.
Basically it got CS:GO'd. TF2 was beautiful but its identity was taken away.
The Steam Community is very glitchy lately; sometimes or more often than not, components like the preview for the friends list on someone's profile or their played games won't display; hell, sometimes it'll even display the page as though you weren't logged in even if you are. That's outright lag.
I still play TF2 from time to time but because of my shitty internet I tend to only launch it when my connection is down and I wanna pass time. Been planning to unrust it tonight though!
What's important is that you *want* to go there. University is about desire. It turns quite difficult eventually. And during those moments you'll want to have your own motivation and desire to push yourself forward.
Yes. 2014 still feels like yesterday for me. So does 2016. I must have a lot of things from the past still having their place in my thoughts. Don't worry, you'll always be older than me if anything. cx
What a beautiful thing to hear, man. You have no idea how much time I've spent lately looking for a PS1 emulator that's light, accurate and able to support Xinput. It's true it's a sin to use an Xbox controller to play on a PS emulator but whatever, I have nothing else available. As for the PS2, my PC isn't strong enough to run the games smoothly. So I'm really happy to see you have the consoles themselves to enjoy yourself.
Tekken 7 seems to be a fantastic game just by looking at it! I also have a friend that's kind of obsessed over it.
As for me, I'm just really enjoying going to university! While I cannot say I've made strict friends yet - I go to a different class on each day with its own set of classmates so yeah, I'm never seeing the same set of classmates twice a week - I still get along with pretty much anybody I talk to. It's as though whatever social anxiety I had is now gone. Obviously doesn't mean I won't tremble a little if the prettiest girl in the world chats me up 1 on 1 naturally.
I caught a pretty nice schedule; Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 14:30 to 18:30, though classes actually end at 17:40 or around. The 18:30 part is just a formality to round things up to 4 hours really. But classes are actually 3 and a half hours at most.
So yes, I am perfectly happy with the things that I'll be doing for the next 5 or 7 years - the idea of becoming a mechanical engineer really seems to resonate with what I want judging from the way I feel when I step into each class. Being an university student and having all the responsibility for my actions fall upon no one but myself, makes me feel really powerful.
I know this post is kinda long, but hey, reading is good for your health! ;P
