not inseperable per se but certainly at the same time or the soda right afterwards and just chillin out on the sofa

This is a hard one, but I think it has to be something that laughter can't give. How about tears? They can bring anyone to a calm and collected state after disaster and bring self growth better than any good time can bring.

Have you ever been pocketed as a pyro in tf2? I'm feelin the urge to play some tf2 soon, so you might be in a good spot to have a pocket in the near future.

I am a kritz fan, but usually wouldn't kritz a pyro. Perhaps we could experiment with that and see if it's worth?

there's a silly pyro bug that i dont know how to do where you can get a ton of velocity and stay in one place so your flames just travel across the map

by brad; ; Report

I know vaguely what you're talking about but also don't know setups. I think it has to do with situations like this where the player's speed and velocity don't match?

By the way, where did you find Frog for your profile picture? You never played Everhood when you were using it so how did you discover and connect with it?

Side note, the site is choppy on my phone with the app relative to my site. Not sure if you care, but in case you want the profile to work well on mobile I'm letting you know so you can improve it if you want.

i had heard of the game many years ago but never bothered with playing it, and then last month i saw someone in a tf2 casual match with the same picture of the frog and i was like "oh its the goober from that game" so i grabbed the highest res version i could find and there ya go. also, frogs r cool i think

i doubt anyone is actually using spacehey on phones other than for the badge (is that still attainable?) so i dont really give a shit if it runs poorly, site is a throwback to early social media on pc anyways, right? should probably put something up about best viewed on pc...

by brad; ; Report

Actually, there is a whole app for SpaceHey. It's featured in the navigation bar under 'App' and has a retro IOS UI. Even if there wasn't an app, I would have probably tried the site on my phone anyway. Mobile first isn't that hard so I thought I would let you know. It's up to you though if you want to fix it.

i know there's an app cause i got the badge, im not gonna fix it anyways

Do you play a decent amount of TF2 brad, or do you mention being a pyro main just because hte game was influential at some point in your life? I keep hard fixating on tf2 only to completely burn out on it for a matter of months.

Report Comment



i could yap about tf2 for hours but i'll try to keep it short, yeah. the whole month or two month long tf2 obsession does strike whenever it pleases, but when it does, its on pyro. i've got weapon switch binds to help use the degreaser's passives better, although i've been gravitating more towards stock as of late

by brad; ; Report

A fellow config freak! I have seperate cfg files per class and have a whole bunch of medic specific macros on my keyboard. Could you explain / find an explanation of the degreaser tech you're talking about. Pyro is one of my less played classes so I don't know a ton about their tech.

by Fawkes; ; Report

it used to be before some updates that equipping the degreaser would just mean a faster switch speed on pyro but has 2 less airblasts than stock and less afterburn damage, but since weapon switch speed was increased slightly to all classes, the tf2 team felt the need to change the degreaser a bit more so it has 60% less time switching TO it and 30% less switching FROM it so you have worse switch speed if you just went from secondary to melee. the weapon switch thing i've got is just mouse5 for primary, q for secondary and e for melee (and mouse4 for medic), this helps a lot in performing axtinguish or flare combos because you're not focusing on scrollwheel or using the number buttons above wasd (which are kinda uncomfortable to press, and even harder in the middle of combat). having dedicated buttons very much helps and is a thing quake players still do, worrying less on what weapon to switch to with numbers and scrollwheel and focusing more on muscle memory and hoping the button you pressed for the rocket launcher was timed well.



pyro combos (especially the flashy ones) has got to be some of the most painful, insanity inducing, unhinged source shenanigans that most of the playerbase in wholly unaware of and really exaggerates how much of an ambush class pyro is meant to be

by brad; ; Report

I was aware of how the degreaser used to work for old combo pyro before everyone else got a switch speed buff, but I thought that combo pyro had mostly died with that.

So, if I understand correctly, you have special binds for going to your secondary and melee that pull out the degreaser first for a faster switch speed overall? Or are you just saying that you use custom keybinds to just hit the switch buttons a bit easier?

Are you the kind of person who knows a whole bunch of the janky flare gun jumps that exist for pyro? I know of them in vague, but couldn't do one if my life depended on it in a crunch.

by Fawkes; ; Report

combo pyro is more niche i think since it got kinda nerfed, but you can still flare crit all classes except pyro without some flame manipulation on stock (you can do it fine on degreaser), the weapon slot binds are just so i find it easier to switch between weapons, but having the degreaser does help

i dont know any of the flare gun jumps, detonator jumping i can do alright, but nothing too cool like setting an enemy on fire, airblasting, det jumping towards them and axtinguishing in that order, or doing that but vertically

side note, i was on an mge server wanting to practice more pyro last month, and won 25:24 against a scout from being able to hit flares and they said i was pretty good which was nice
