The Spycicle is definitely not a crutch. OP maybe, but crutch, no.

If you can evade Pyros well enough already, why would you need the Spy Cicle?

Why would you lose your knife for something that shouldn't be an issue unless you deliberately made a mistake.


It is a crutch, in that only Spies who have that much trouble with Pyros will choose to use it. Those who don't will use another knife, as they rather die backstabbing a Medic, than lose their knife, and immediately die afterward.

I really like how people are making important threads like this when so many others can't even play due to the damn game crashing. Way to tackle the real problems, bucko.

Because everyone here can code and can totally fix that problem.

Also, everyone has the exact same rig and same specs.....

I like the idea of voting for the next weapon - but I believe you should not be able to re-vote existing Stranges... Kinda defeats the point.

And it should only affect one or two of the stranges.

How about this:

Let's say there are 30 droppable items that don't have strange quality yet. We vote on those 30 for our favourite and valve puts every 5th or so in the crate.

This would mix up wanted and unwanted items like it does now but we have a say of what could be in them rather than it being random.

Sorry to go off-topic, but...

-Pyros that come out of nowhere (You can't account for every scenario, especially when you see what looks to be a good pick)
-For an advantage against good Pyros

I get a little more lee-way on my dealing with Pyros in exchange for having no knife WHEN I AM A BIT BUSY BEING CLOAKED TO SNEAK BACK IN/AWAY. Which isn't really a downside.

Worth the loss of Pyro stairstabs/trickstabs really. Especially when you get those moments when you get switched to your gun and just load the Pyro full of lead in the head instead.

I would vote for Overdose so I can stop handicapping my Medic with a strange syringe gun.

Well since I trying to get every single strange to replace it with the weapons I have (only have to get the series 30 ones) I don't mind which ones they put into the crates.
