Remove Random Crits

I am completely serious. Random crits are a abomination. Controlled crits are fine since they are earned. This game would be way more fun if a player didn't randomly do massive damage from sheer luck.

Random crits are part of the game.

Stop whining

Change random crits into random mini crits. One side gets their stupid randomness luck factor, and the other doesn't get one hit killed cause the other guy had a date with Lady Luck.

Thanks for making another one of these. We all know that now that there are officially 500 threads about this topic, people will change their mind and agree with you.

By this point, everyone has their own opinion of random crits. Valve isn't removing them, and if you don't like that you can play on a no-crit server (that's why they exist)

how can you even compare the two? Crits are not bugs; they are part of the game's balance. They don't need to be fixed.

Fun Fact: Crits are not a part of the games balance, no matter what bad players say. A big reason why many people here joke about the no random crits downside.

OK.

Does it make the game based on skill? No. That doesn't mean it isn't a part of the game's balance. Technically, everything is a part of the game's balance, for better or worse. Saying crits aren't part of the game is like saying it's ok for the spy or sniper to be UP because they aren't used in 6v6 anyway, so only noobs will say it's important.

Random Crits get people to keep playing the game. A game like TF2 has been around long enough that joining the game can be incredibly frustrating because of how good people have gotten through experience. Random Crits allow noobs to enjoy the learning experience by every once in a while helping out those noobs. An experienced player isn't going to quit just cause a noobs randomly crits him a few times, but an inexperienced player might go on a big killing spree with them, and that's what would make him stay with the game long enough to be good enough to not need crits. If you don't like crits, there's no reason to complain. You can easily find a server without them.

JSYK, I play on nocrit servers. I personally am hurt more than helped by crits. That doesn't mean I want crits out of the game. They're a great way to get more people playing the game and that's always a good thing.

So if this game involved getting poop dumped on your face you would tell people not to whine because Valve put it there?

Random crits are pretty stupid, more servers should have them turned off.

I don't really think that when I am about to kill someone because I have better aim than them and them getting a random crit to kill me very balanced.

Look in the server browser. It literally takes me thirty seconds. Then just add them to favorites.

Finding one is easy, finding a good one that's populated? You have a better chance of ting a golden wrench.
