Its a fast paced game so in large matches like 16 vs 16, the stun is going to get very annoying, very fast. Especially how long it lasts. Its also too easy to aim, imo. if it stuns that long and you're able to do it that often, it should be hard as mess to actually hit them. Its going to get annoying with 10 scouts running around stunning everyone, slowing everything down, and making your run to the other side of the map be like "5 steps, stunned, 5 steps, stunned... if you're not dead after the first one". 3 seconds(or longer) stuns are meant for mmorpgs. A rare one here and there may be alright, but not that often. Or maybe it like... a half second, jus to stop them.

I dunno.. just annoys me and like you said, it might make me dislike playing and I've been having a lot of fun on the game lately.

Also, I haven't encountered any spies yet, so haven't had to deal with that new update yet. I'm about to go play and check it out. I only played for about an hour last night with some friends on an empty server to check out the updates for scout.

Eventually everyone will stop being the scout after the newness wears off.

That comparison is great! Now everyone playing as scouts will be shouting SHAMWOW!

Skier, what do you think Natascha is for? :) the ball long ball reload as well as the loss of double jump balance it fairly well IMO. just think the sandman should do less melee damage than the regular bat

They removed the double jump? That was the main reason that I would ever use the scout!

This explains why I never stop hearing about Shamwow on v-coms while in game... :mrgreen:

It's rather interesting to read the wide disparity of opinions, some of the few regular spies I play against (and fear) love the new update... and others that don't regularly play spy and tried it said the spies got nerfed. I haven't tried spy yet, been to busy with scouts!

The bonk stun will only last a split second when at point blank range, it wears off in the same time it takes to switch weapons. If you get stunned from long range, well then I feel ya deserve what you get! The only time a baseball stuns someone for a long time regardless of range is when it crits.

The Force-A-Nature gun is pretty good but takes some serious getting used to as if you are up in the air it sends you flying off in some other direction when fired. The Sandman is fun, and I do feel the slower swing rate is enough and would say leave the damage as normal. It's a wooden bat, technically it should do significantly more damage than a hollow aluminum can bat!

The energy drink is interesting, but it only has limited applications. It wears off in about four seconds, and it takes one second of not taking damage to even be used. If you bump or move a scout while they're taking a swig they "spill" the drink instead of using it and have to try again.

i have no idea how ANYONE could think the Spy got nerfed, the backstab is just much faster making it much easier to play, if they think it got worse, then they shouldn't even play spy because they don't know what they are doing at all

and the bonk stun is rediculous, if you spam it into a large group of people, someone is gonna get raped. period. Especially as medic(my primary class) this is very bad, i've had to waste two ubers on the same section of one map because of it being spammed at a group of people

I'm lost with the fracking game. What's the deal with sandwiches and stuff? I can't find a list of achievements or anything.
