    Spies
    Snipers
    Teammates who refuse to push up
    AFKs

    That is all.

    Edit: bullet points don't work?

    Yeah, snipers keep me from playing Orange.

    Just go scout and piss them off, they'll then go offense to try and kill you, then you can really fight them. :grin:

    I've given up on orange being anything but a stat whoring frag fest. You would be wise to do the same.

    It was fun for a little while. Then when you get ~7 snipers on the other team (with about half of them actually decent) it gets annoying really, really quickly. I've started playing Warpath now. Then again warpath is full of demos, annoying as well.

    And it's not like you can really join the game and say "do we really need 5 Snipers?" because the "stat whoring fragfest" is why most players play that map. Take a look at the NH TF2 stats: 2 of the top 3 players play Orange almost exclusively (greater than 95% of their points). *shrug*

    Do this:
    Code:
    [list]
    [*]Spies
    [*]Snipers
    [*]AFKs
    [/list]

    Nah. Orange is soooo fun. It's rare that a custom map will have such longevity with me. This map is the exception to the rule.

    Also, I just got out of a game: 105 backstabs, 35 deaths. Not bad. Just passed 200 hours on Spy.

    well the way i see it is orange is the kind of map u go to when u're bored with other maps, or if u want to practice your sniping, spying, or scouting.

    Virtually every map has it's core group of hardcore fans. Believe it or not, I actually hated Warpath when I first played it. 18 months later, I probably have 2000+ hours on that map.

    Where does my claim of statwhoreing fall short on this? :wink: So, yeah, it's good for practice if you can translate low-grav to reg-grav. Other than that, it's a stat whoring frag fest.

    I had never played Orange before today. I became a total stat whore. 150 headshots in just over an hour, i think, feels pretty good. But it did get old.

    It's an oddly satisfying map. Very simple, but at the same time, very playable and fun. I do wish there were more corners and spots where people like myself can take advantage of and hide in :p.

    I hate it when,

    Newb pyros/heavies spam their weapons through the walls.

    There are a lot of good snipers on the other team. (Cuz then I have to go spy and stab the shit out of them)

    THISS!!! I hate that so much! Especially in the sniper server. There's ones who seem like robots who just never say -anything-, they just head shot.

    Hell yeah!!! Even when you try to talk to them, they don't respond. I'm tempted at times to do a little !swapteam and then "," and then "9" and then go over there and stab the shit out of them. :lol:

    It pisses me off that we may need them to cover a point, instead there off doing whatever. AHHH!
