    Hey guys some of you know me as the pyro on Orange the names pickles. Just came on to introduce myself. I mainly play pyro but I like to switch to whatever is needed on my team except snipers because they are over played on orange. Snipers especially My biggest pet peeve is finding 5-7 bad snipers who hang out at spawn because heaven forrbid the move and get shot once.

    I play with my dad most of the time most of you know him as Al - Truistic AKA the old fart on orange( he's 50) :lol: :grin: . we started around the same time and he has been trying to become as good as a pyro as me. He is making his way up the charts and should brake 100 soon. although i have just gotten to the 900's.

    Most of my friends play on orange like JClay, Strangelove, Fozzie, Capella, and of course Al - Truistic. Wanted to shout out to all of you guys because you are some of the best I have ever played with.

    My dad says his claim to fame is having no headshots on orange. mine is being able to kill my dad and most other pyros because I am one of the few who uses back burner.

    If you wanna play against me or my friends I suggest playing orange it is the funnest map i've played and if your friends say it is to hard then they must be newbs because all you need is a little practice at the map to get better.

    Welcome to No-Heroes, and

    Having a backburner isn't key in pyro v pyro duels... it's having a shotgun.

    I wish my dad would play TF2 with me, but he constantly wants me to stop playing this game >.>

    Welcome, I've played you a couple of times.

    Total BS, Darth. I killed 2 pyros, 1 soldier, and 3 snipers with the flare gun last night. :grin:
    That 20 initial hit damage is great when they're already dying. :twisted:

    I was specifically refering to pyro v. pyro, where the enemy doesn't get caught on fire. A pyro with a shotgun versus a pyro with a flare gun- shotgun wins everytime.

    Anyways, glad to have you at No Heroes, pickles.

    Well I suppose I should chime in here. :lol:

    Don't tell him, but head to head he can usually take me. That being said I am trying to teach him to be a better TEAM player. He is still a little to obsessed with personal achievements, but we are working on it.

    We can't play opposite teams very often, because he never shuts up, and he gives away his teams strategy. We have 2 desktops back to back in my office (actually more like a large closet) and I can hear everything he says.

    Truth be told, I play a lot more than he does, so there is hope for some of you that you could be doing this when you are old and grey.

    Thanks to all for welcoming him. He is a good kid, and I am proud of him.

    Al

    Al, you are by far the coolest dad ever I've ever seen lol. It's still so amazing to me for a father to play video games with their children, it's very rare for me to see.

    Thanks, Deadpulse.

    Now if you would stop shooting me in the head, we can get along just fine.

    I wish my Dad opened up to technology enough to simply get an e-mail address :cry: , nevermind a Steam account with TF2. That's what I call father-son bonding! I'd probably make my Dad be my medic.
