Actually (without viewing the clip cuz my "company" has it blocked) I think we should get together and practice like the old CSS days. It was a lot of fun. Course not having our own server or vent will make it difficult. Perhaps what we could do is go by the buddy system for now. What I've seen other successful teams do is not let anyone go rogue. Pack together even if it means waiting a few seconds for our mates to spawn...and then strike points in a bunch.

I've got to get the one for lighting a spy while he's throwing a cigarette.

I want to try the Boobytrap tactic... It's when you play medic and you are fully charged and you tell the guy you are healing to go and just when they shout for uber you leave him. This also can be effective the other way around. This tactic is guaranteed to help your enemies win so they don't become disgruntled and leave. Of course when you charge in you must always say "Come play with Boobie"

Well, the simple setup to do is to have the medic be the center of any group, with a soldier whose main job is medic defense and one other (usually a demo or heavy) who is out to do damage to the other team. If we can work in groups of three, based around a medic, and maybe with a scout or two running around to pick off the stragglers it would probably be pretty effective. The main thing is to have communication - know where the enemy is, who's low on health, when to go forward, back etc - this should be organized by the medic.

Gotta have code words. Like instead of "hit it" say " Got Medicine?"

Instead of "Go now" use "Let's wait 1 more minute"

In todays economy/market, free is very good.
Personally, vent has always been one of the things that made gaming with everyone so much fun for me.

Nice one Makker - this brings back memories of the old CSS vent server we had running.... now all we have to do is get the old sounds going again. Not sure we'll manage that with someone else' server, but I do miss the knife-fight soundtrack! I guess Valve liked the 'praise and scorn' idea so much that they put it into TF2 automatically with the domination etc ;-)

OK, some bad news. Vent on my hoster is out. Evidently they shut down the process when they see it running (it used to work). We have a couple of alternatives that I am exploring, including hosting our own vent server via one of my desktops. I would have to manually start it up every night, but it would work.

I could probably host it on the server at the office, but in the long time since i've logged into the Cisco Pix i can't remember the info. So it may not work without the propper ports being open.
