A parabola is a set of points that are equidistant from a point and a line. If the sentence in the chart means anything, it means a circle.

… yeah, that’s about right.

Best part of being a Pyro? Being called “W+M1″ epithet after airblasting a crit rocket back into a throng of attackers.

Best part of being a Medic? Overwhelmed in sudden death overtime, alltalk=on, and hearing “There’s only two medics left, let’s rush ‘em!” Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Minecraft is an FPS if you have a bow.

Do you like to play a class when there are way too many of that class on your team already? Sniper or Spy! They’ll never push that bomb when there are 7 spies stabbing them, or 6 Snipers all trying to use the exact same nest point!

Actually, a parabola is the thing that keeps you dry in the rain. Parabola is just the French name for it.

An equation where all points are equidistant from the center is called a ‘circle’. A parabola contains all point equidistant from the focus and the line which is perpendicular to the tangent of the vertex and located the same distance from the vertex as the focus.

There seems to be no option on the flow chart for those who actually do know what a parabola is.

I, too, would like to talk about how this chart that helps you pick an imaginary man to shoot people in a video game got the definition of “parabola” wrong!

No fun… everybody already corrected the parabola thing. :)

It is popular accounting software. You can download it and do accounting things.

You could read TF2 as an account simulation. Engineers create tax shelters, slush funds and diversionary accounts, spies expose these to reduce their effectiveness (but engineers can reconceal them to repair them). Demomen use sudden stock swings to launch themselves ahead of competitors (with some damage to their capital base as a result) and to blow others out of the water. Medics heal by tax breaks and spending cuts. Yes, Tax Fortress 2 is fun for all ages!

As Heavy Accountant Guy might say, “I AM AUUUDIT PROOOOF!”

How about if you have a superhuman ability to get lost while playing FPSs? Or should I go back to Sid Meier games?

I might have phrased my doubts wrong. I’ll rehprase it:

What kind of game is TF2? Is it a MMORPG with a continuing history for your character or is it more like Counter Strike where each game is independent?

ReplyReply

Carlos: Some of both. It’s like CS where each game is independent, however there is an item discovery and crafting system that lets you equip yourself with other-than-standard gear (like swapping out your chaingun for one that does less damage, but has a slowing effect on those who are hit by it) and cosmetic changes (hats!).

Oh, and I should have clarified: your inventory of these items is persistent, so you can take them from game to game and server to server.

Clearly TF2 is the best based Hat simulation game currently on the market (strong seconds include Henry Hatsworth and Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of Light). Also I think there’s a FPS minigame somewhere in there.

You missed out the important fact that the Heavy has all the best lines.

Go ahead. Build your tiny gun.

Prefect: In that case, either play Engineer or Medic. They’re not easy, but Engineer is about building items for your team, so you get to pick one spot and stay there unless your items get destroyed. Medic ranges all over, but they stick with someone else. So you just follow that person, and either they’ll lead you to the right place, or you’ll at least be lost together.

Or, in a good-sized match, play a support pyro. When you spawn, follow an engineer to where he sets up, and stay there and light up everyone that gets close – friend or enemy. You can’t hurt friends this way, but if it’s a disguised spy, excellent! Works even better once you have the sledgehammer, so you can knock off sapper devices.

There’s basically no situation where a pyro is uncalled for. It’s as simple as A-B-C: Always Be Combusting.

Actually, that thing (in French) that keeps you dry from the rain is a parapluie. The word’s actually Greek.

There. I stepped in like a total dick.

Also, this chart is seriously awesome. And Sbloyd’s advice above is pretty much the best where pyro’s concerned, anyway.
