Hey, I want to get a soldering iron finally. I want to use it for motherboard repairs and other, similar electronics. Do you have any recommendation on a quality soldering iron, and what sorts of tips I might need for common stuff?
Spy is only useful against large teams so he has no hope of being as useful in a comp match as a Soldier. I know the logistics of getting 24 people all to get together on the one server are dire, but the game is not designed for 6v6 matches, which is what most comp games are. That is not TF2's fault.
Decided to take this out of the 2010 games thread. Are you sure the FaN can still do that? I know they reworked its effect a while back, but I don't actually use the thing so I don't know. As for the class balance, I have never played comp but it comes to no surprise to me at all that the class balance in comp is totally broken because the class balance in pubs is also totally broken when you have small teams. TF2 is balanced as a 12v12 game with many of the classes being specialists. When you get down to 6v6 you can't afford to have people play specialist classes any more and everyone has to go to the generalist classes; Soldier, Demoman and Scout (Scout is actually slightly more specialist but his counters are specialist and so he doesn't encounter them in most comp matches so it almost doesn't matter).
