Don't have a clue what to do with any of it so if I take years to answer friends requests don't blame me.

It'll be a lot easier to just create a group on steam and have people join rather than keeping a list of names. That way you won't need to add everybody as friends, etc and can organize events with reminders and stuff.

Also to the people who are playing for the first time, the learning curve can be steep for some classes and you'll probably run around lost and die a lot at first (especially on CP_Steel).

I actually found that a lot of the traditional FPS skils transferred over, excluding classes specific to class-based FPS'(Medic, engi, and the impossible-to-hit-with scoot)

What's a good beginner class? Just to learn the basics.

Medic. You can learn a lot just by watching what your teammates do.

Are medics not relied on for health or does everyone just die and not give a shit?

Unless you do something really noticeably stupid, they won't care. Besides, no-one cares about dying anymore, as long as they get hats >_>

It should be included with the download.

Medics are really freaking important in any serious game. But then again the game is seldom that serious. Let's just say that they are key players in the game. A good medic and a heavy= madness,

...Again, aren't those relatively the same thing?

I think you're asking along the lines of "Are Medics combat oriented or do people not care about being healed by them?"

If you're fighting, you can't heal. So if they're not relied on for healing, that'd mean people are unconcerned with dying?

I'm so confused
Basically, do people care if they die?

Not particularly, but medics are really helpful for invading enemy bases/areas, and its nice to have at least one on your team. People don't really care if they die, but they'll like you and back you up if you heal them.

It's not about dying. Any number of medics on either team will influence the outcome of a round. That said

Ah. Kind of. A lot of people , particularly newer people who aren't aware that the Medic is the crux of a good team, would rather you die than them. But they're mostly wrong in my opinion.

I, as well as most people who know the value of a Medic and/or play Medic frequently, would rather take a bullet for the Medic, as you don't have a lot of HP, you can heal me faster than you heal, I can fight back, and the ubercharge - In a nutshell, as you heal, you build uber. Once you hit 100%, you can activate a special ability for ten seconds on you and your heal target. These vary between the three mediguns, but the most-loved one and default one is ten seconds of invulnerability. Can slaughter an entire team with a good target, either offensively or defensively. - doesn't respawn with you.

This doesn't mean be timid; the people who need you most are on the front, and that's where you get the most uber from. But if you're under heavy fire and/or low on health, especially if your heal target is a slower class, don't be afraid to fall back, with or without them, especially if you have some charge built up.

I dunno I think that Soldier is better suited as a beginner class. As some of you have already stated medics often carry the responsability of helping to rest of the team "advance" like in Payload maps.

Also medic isn't the best choice because you are probably going to be the target of practically everyone.

Well it died because only the people the gaming thread would play and they were mostly from the UK. If we have a thread for all of UG to join the server we could have a filled server every night especially that the game is free now.

Medic is good for beginners since it's relatively passive. You just click to heal and follow teammates, helping you learn the maps and general gameplay/tactics.

Soldier isn't that good for beginners IMO since it's kinda hard to hit stuff at first and you run out of ammo fast.

A beginner can be a decent Pyro (W+M1) but it does take a while to get good at it. But even a crap Pyro is good for spy checking.
