Please do something.

Maybe I am taking this a bit too far. Maybe. *Sniff.* Maybe. But I’ve yet to see someone who can outsmart bullet any real progress this year. The only thing of note so far is the Workshop Beta, but that’s peppered with holes and stuff. It’s also like 5 years too late, TF2Maps and Gamebanana have been helping us fine good and bad maps since TF2’s birth. And let’s not get started on Quickplay. Then there’s Mannpower, which was introduced, got some balance patches then got ignored. Before that there was End of the Line, which was probably the first… [Continue Reading]

Stupidly Simple Fixes

There’s a lot of stuff wrong with Team Fortress 2 currently. People are having huge problems with performance. Cheat-users are making new accounts the second they are banned. Everyone still hates Sniper and Engineer. There’s bugs that need fixing. The Betas that Valve made have been ignored and are really just giant failures. Quickplay still hasn’t been removed. These are all complicated things that I can’t fix. Apart from Quickplay being removed. But then there’s weapon balance. Now that’s easy. There’s a few quality of life things we can do just to make people happy. So this article is going… [Continue Reading]

Stop saying I’m a good Medic!

Seriously. Stop saying that. I’m not a good Medic. Please. Seriously. Related posts: Thoughts on my first season of competitive TF2 Why you really, really should not be a Battle Medic.

The Crusader’s Crossbow is overpowered

Not so serious title there. It’s one of those attention-grabbing things that would automatically get you a huge pile of downvotes on any site that uses an upvote / downvote system. But there is some truth to that attention-grabbing title. There is something wrong with the Crusader’s Crossbow. Firstly, a historical thing. Crusaders were bastards. All they did was incite holy war against people with different beliefs. Bastards, the lot of them. Anyway, back to our version of this medieval beauty. The Crusader’s Crossbow is the only non-Syringe Gun Medic primary. The only one. Probably forever, since Medic primaries are… [Continue Reading]

Medic Speculates Again

I’ll be frank here, I’m a little obsessed with the TF Comic series. I really like most of it. I was not a fan of how Sniper ended up as a badly written Superman parody, since his now foster parents were REALLY nice people based on the humans in Courage the Cowardly Dog. I miss that show. But for the longest of time, there has been a lot of silence and speculation based on whatever’s happened in the past. Now we have a few more tidbits coming to light, such as an actual possible release date for issue 5. Come… [Continue Reading]

Daily SPUF’s FAQ Page is Confirmed Gay

Written by aabicus while the Log In Via Steam button is borked. In light of the recent reveal that Miss Pauling is gay, we here at the Daily SPUF thought the time has never been better to make a sobering announcement about a page that we all know and love. Yes. Our Frequently Asked Questions page, viewable here, is gay. We’ve never called it out. None of our readers have ever expressed an interest in knowing, or even reading it, because it’s a horribly outdated page I dashed out back when we were still a buggy mess on Blog.com and… [Continue Reading]

Why do Medics stick to Heavies?

A Heavy is a Medic’s best friend. Always has been. You see, he’s basically a giant wall you can hide behind that moves around. But he’s also slow and painful and all that. Really, people give Heavy a bad name, that he’s fat and stupid and an abomination, that he should be removed or completely reworked or whatever. That’s cruel. Heavy is a simple class, designed for newer players to get in to the game, and for somewhat competent people to play if they need a brick wall or something quickly. He’s not got a high skill ceiling, but you… [Continue Reading]

Why I play League of Legends

When I say I play League of Legends, most people I know roll their eyes and sigh. Despite League of Legends having a literal fuckton of players, it seems that 90% of people I know really dislike the game. They look at me as if I’m some sort of masochist maniac. Well they’re wrong. There’s other reasons why I like League of Legends. The first reason is that I like the art style. Sadly, the style has been changing over the years, going for a more detailed, darker, Dota look. But when I started playing, everything was bright colours and… [Continue Reading]

So Miss Pauling is now gay…

According to the head writer of the TF Comic series, which probably won’t come out for another month or so due to them having been working on other things Valve-related, there’s some actual news. As for what they’ve been working on, it’s probably Dota 2 stuff. Frankly, all of Valve’s other games are getting tired of Dota 2 getting all the attention. It’s not even a proper Valve game. Anyway, as I was saying, they announced that Miss Pauling, the action-packed assistant to the Administrator, is a lesbian. Now, I’m not normally one to complain about these things. As far… [Continue Reading]

Some things you shouldn’t do in a Free To Play game

Today, we turn into some sort of Buzz Feed thingy and talk about a bunch of things that people rally shouldn’t put in their Free to Play games. Yes, I know you make these games to make money, but there’s plenty of ways you can do it without pissing off players. Non-pissed off players are more likely to tell other people about your game and spend money on it than pissed off players will. So let’s begin. Number 1 – Pay To Win This is always number one on any sort of Free To Play checklist. Is there anything in… [Continue Reading]
