What do you think about the new price of keys in refined metal?

Brickinator: I don’t trade keys so I have no idea. aabicus: Sweet, I sold my strange festive Ambassador for 6 keys, and now those keys I’ve ignored are worth eight keys! Or something. I’m not a math major. Now of course I don’t like the rampant inflation, but it’s not like we haven’t seen it coming. This has been a steady uphill climb ever since Halloween 2012 when the keys rose as expected but then didn’t go back down. At this point, I find the most intelligent move is to either eschew key trading entirely or get as many keys… [Continue Reading]

What’s your dream unusual?

Dear Aaby, what’s your dream unusual? Question by one of Medic’s siblings. Medic: Ummm, I’m not sure. While I’ve always gone on about how much I like the Otolaryngologist’s Mirror, my dream unusual would actually be a Das Hazmattenhatten with the Spellbound or Arcadia effect. Out of all the recent Halloween effects, those really stand out. A second choice, which would never exist, is orbiting Medic emblems. I say that though, I love my bubbly mirror, despite me being neither a doctor nor drunk. aabicus: For many of the reasons stated in this article, I like Massed Flies as my… [Continue Reading]

Cross-Updating Announcements: An Apology

A reader and writer of our blog, Sn❽wman, just informed me that because I didn’t update the 10v10 Mirrored Maps blog announcement like I did the SPUF announcement, he had no idea signups had come and gone. I feel really bad about that, I just didn’t know we had readers who weren’t also SPUFers. In the future I will make sure to update both announcements with up-to-date information as to the status of signups and other aspects of events like these. (Note that its unlikely I will ever have people sign up through the blog; you will probably need to… [Continue Reading]

What’s In Your TF>Custom Folder?

This will be a general survey to see what y’all keep in your TF>Custom folder in the way of mods, skins, scripts, or whatnot. Screenshots are encouraged! Medic: I feel bad. I don’t have much in my custom folder at all. I have a custom hitsound, but it’s just a simple ding noise. I do have 3Fort’s SPUF hat as a reskin for the Proof of Purchase. I do love that hat and it’s one of the few I wear often, apart from my unusual. I only have it as a reskin for Medic’s Proof of Purchase recently, I’m not… [Continue Reading]

Why do you hate Snipers so much?

This question was brought to you by Medics’s siblings. I finally did this for you, now shut up. ————————– Aabicus: Snipers can be teeth-gnashingly annoying, but in all honesty they don’t bug me as much as they could. I’ve since learned to be very careful before crossing into territory where a sniper could see me, and unlike most classes, I’ve got a way to turn myself invincible against all damage, for when I finally poke my head out. That’s not to say that sniper’s niche of “deals lethal damage from the other side of the map” isn’t incredibly difficult to… [Continue Reading]

If you could add a weapon of your own design into TF2, what would it be?

The Clear Shot Level 5 Grenade Launcher On hit: +20 health -25% clip size aabicus: As someone who loves the Grenade Launcher but wishes he had more survivability, this very simple setup (that should remind you of a current TF2 weapon) has been my favorite stat concept I’ve come up with. We’re going with Clear Shot for its name only because my suggestion was a little rude. In my opinion, it holds an attraction for all brands of Demoman. Sticky Launcher demos can use it to regain health if they get the opportunity, demoknights and Sticky Jumper demos have to… [Continue Reading]

Please host your article’s images on The Daily SPUF

One of the most common problems with submitted articles is that images are hyperlinked to elsewhere on the internet. The problem with doing this is that if anything happens to this other site, the links will break on The Daily SPUF and the image won’t be visible. For that reason, I’d like to ask that you upload images onto The Daily SPUF and then link to the image that way. Here’s a very simple guide outlining the steps: 1. Save the image onto your computer. 2. When the time comes to add the picture into the article, click the “Add… [Continue Reading]

What is your opinion on each of the Paints in TF2?

Aabicus: I think it’s a cool idea, as I always like further ability to customize. Unfortunately, I’m such a stickler there aren’t many paints I use personally. I’ve got a real thing for White paint, I find it looks good on a lot of loadouts. Other than that very little of my stuff is painted. Instead, I find myself drawn to the default colors of most cosmetics. But I don’t discriminate based on garish hues. As a matter of fact, I’m more likely to heal those people and trust them because they’ve shelled out the dosh for paint and probably… [Continue Reading]

What Weapons did you use in your early days of TF2 that you believed were good but you soon realized they weren’t as good as you thought?

Aabicus: When I first started playing TF2, I didn’t have the patience for regular Pyro, and I was well aware that I sucked at the airblast. So when the Pyro Grordbort set came out, I had my first experience trying to craft with tokens, as they didn’t have proper blueprints and I thought they never would. Several refined metals worth of drops later, and I had enough flare guns and backburners to equip an angry mob. I finally got my Phlogistinator and Manmelter once the normal blueprint came out, and rocked it with my Homewrecker, because I never got melee… [Continue Reading]
