I fixed my problem and I've started to play online, so much fun and real different from playing against bots! I may still be a bit of a noob but I'm learning a lot from it.
Though until I can get rid of my camper Sniper habit, I have been playing a bit of everything (Usually whatever the team has less of) minus Engineer.

        Well, it's annoying when you lose because everyone on your team is playing Spy and Sniper.

        But that doesn't necessarily mean you should completely shy away from even playing Spy or Sniper. Besides any smart player would know that a good team is a balanced one. It's not common to be playing with a team with filled with just Spies and Snipers. Spies and Snipers are only support and you need basic Attack and Defence. That's the reason I play whatever the team doesn't have. I doubt anyone would stay in a team filled with just Spies and Snipers.

        This. Course there is a huge difference for people who know how to play as a Spy well to those who've just picked it up but hey how will you ever good at playing a particular role if you don't practise it, let alone play it.

        I'd rather have a good spy or sniper than 5 bad Heavies.

        For example, I main Engineer. I sometimes have off days, but usually people complain that I'm playing Engineer on offence, until I end up on the top of the chart through a useful teleport and aggressive Sentry placement. A Spy and Sniper can provide a similar utility.

        Anyways, I'm daigonite on Steam so give me a holler if you want to play with me.

          You must be really, really bad if you can't play Heavy.

          I can play heavy, but not well, and it bores me. I prefer Engineer, because I like to plan out where people are coming and I prefer being an asset that most people would rather not be.

          What I mean are heavies that are not decent at playing heavy and are better used as another class. Heavy isn't just about mowing down the opposition, there is actually a strategy to it.

          Rarely will you ever actually have a team that's all sniper or spy, and if there is, they're probably trolling. Teams lose because of lack of cooperation, not just class problems. I've won games with only 3 people playing a different class than sniper and spy, so it's not impossible.

            Speaking of "trolling", I was on a team with everyone playing Engineer last night... Red pushed us back too much and they got spycapped. Hilarious.

            Yeah, if an Engineer isn't paying attention they can really get fumbled. I hate it when people can't play Engineer worth ****; I like to call them "derpgineers". We all know one. The kind that when you ask them to repair your strategically placed level 3 sentry will instead use their precious metal on building a level 1 right near the front lines.

            All class teams almost never work though, even Engineer on defense, because of that reason... but if someone was smart enough to place a sentry in that area and monitor it, I don't think that would have happened.

                      You can only get one through buying it from the store. So...not very rare...
                      2-3 ref.
                      However, if it is a craftable one, you could sell it for 7-8 ref.

                            I've been meaning to try out Zombie Fortress, but I can't find any servers with the mode.

                            I usually go on Prop Hunt, Control Points, and Saxton Hale-based servers. But my favorite mode is a modded Control Points not sure if it has an official name. Basically, all we do is take a half hour out of our lives to kill each other as much as we can. There aren't any actual control points, as the loading screen would suggest, so it all ends in a stalemate everytime, making it a fun and challenging map also helpful for getting any items because of all the dying.

                                Just put in zf_ and bam. Servers. Also when you join, if you wanna be on Survivor, type !zf and set your team preferences.

                                  Awesome, thanks for the tip!

                                  Also, if anyone's interested in items, I have a few spares that I don't intend to use, so trading or buying is welcomed for the following:

                                  - X2 Dueling Mini-Games
                                  - Eviction Notice
                                  - Fists of Steel

                                  - Sydney Sleeper
                                  - Razorback

                                  All of them craftable and tradable (duh).

                                  Currently seeking:

                                  - Any hats for Pyro, Soldier, Scout, or heavy

                                  If anyone wants to make an offer, feel free to PM me or something. I don't really feel comfortable posting a link to my Steam Community profile in public. I'm somewhat of a shy guy like that. ^///^

                                    I'm disappointed.
                                    I barely got any items last Thursday, and I got crate 41, not 40
                                    40 is worth earbuds!!!!!!
                                    & I have all of those items :/

                                      My loadouts:
                                      Scout: Scattergun, Bonk, Fish
                                      Soldier: Rocket Launcher, Shotgun, Equalizer
                                      Pyro: Degreaser, Shotgun, Axetinguisher
                                      Demo: Stock (with pan)
                                      Heavy: Minigun, Sandvich, GRU
                                      Engie: Shotgun, Wrangler, Southern Hospitality
                                      Medic: Blut, Medigun/Kritz, Ubersaw
                                      Sniper: Sniper Rifle/Pissgun, Jarate, Tribalman's
                                      Spy: Revolver, Big Earner, Invisiwatch

                                      Stats are a bit messed up since I reset after about the first 1k hours (and I idled a bit as scout), but here are my stats for the past year or three: http://tf2stats.net/player/twocows

                                      As for cosmetics like hats and crap, let me put it this way. When you're as good as me, you don't need junk to help you stand out.
