Hello , I am IssGonRain/Reasoner or whatever you want to call me. I don't believe ftm will be continuing to sesaon 12 so I shall post a thread (rip) I'll be looking for any team in gold or a high silver team possibly ( if you intend to go for playoffs / top 8 silver) I'd like more then 2 scrims a week and I'd love a weekly map review.

I am going to give up on pyro for awhile and try either sniper , soldier or demo in that order of preference. I'd only play another class for some special team. Also I intend to consider my options for awhile.




Sniper - Only 1 season of experience, learned a lot though and not a total noob any more. I prefer a gold spot for sniper ( can do silver ). I'll be doing a completely new sensitivity for s12 if I get picked up for it , so I'll prefer tryouts after playoffs so I can adjust to it . I try to use jarate if it is viable. I got 2nd place silver with sniper so who knows.



Soldier - No experience in soldier , I really need to improve how to properly jump honestly. Willing to learn , but I should be fine in gold tbh.



Demo not trying out for demo again.




Experience

HL
Season 8 Iron - The Cuties - 3rd place - Pyro
Season 9 Silver - The Cuties - 2nd place - Sniper
Season 10 Silver - Ev Trained - Pyro
Season 11 Gold - In It for the medal - Pyro


6's
Season ??? Backup ev trained/ Super retro
Season 13 Roster rider Brazzilionaires platinum 7-1 ( ongoing )


Whatever class I get picked up as in hl I'll try to go into steel 6's or something - with a plat 6's medal 8) -


Thanks.

Dedicated player, always shows up to scrims, and is a natural born leader so I can see him being a good main caller if he gets picked up on demo. Would be awesome if he came back on Sniper in Gold. Great personality, likes whale calls, +rep.

Rain is a really great person. A fast learner, has a strong understanding of the game, and performs very well as Sniper and Pyro (despite not wanting to play it anymore). He's very chill and I love playing with him.

Pls give Rain a good home he deserves it.

very cool person. he's dedicated and always wants to know what he can do to improve. he's all about the team and the definition of a good teammate. he also knows how to play tf2 well.

Rain is one of my favorites from the S9 Cuties, he always laughed at my crude jokes and would rarely throw me into the Time-Out Corner. Though his Sniper skills back then were arguably awful (kid couldn't even headshot a Heavy) he progressed really well throughout the entire season. You tend to get better when you have to snipe against Bowswer, Dreadnought, tech and zeroskill. I don't know his Soldier play but he gets mentored by the Monkey66 from the Tin Team so you know he's good. Definitely carries lobbies and mixes as Demoman.

Picking up Rain will grant you a player who knows the struggles of a Leader. This means he'll show up on time and if he can't, he'll inform you so that you'll have time to find a replacement. He won't clog comms and he'll keep his attitude positive. I don't think I've ever seen him rage before, but I'm sure he's gotten pissed off at least once or twice. Highly recommend this player.

One of the earliest diggas. Veteran dynasty member.


Rains a solid sniper who improved a ton during s9 and who im sure could play pretty comfortably in gold. Idk about his other classes but soldiers easy and Reds fucking amazing so maybe some of that talent juice he shoots got caught in rains hair. Anyways rains a really cool guy. Highly recommended.


Plus he likes Arcade Fire so he knows good music.

Don't worry, Penguin, you'll always have me. Er, and uh, Lunchbox (who still hasn't made the switch to Engineer *cough*).

This guy is probably a good pick-up for your team, but be forewarned.

He smells.

Bump , and important notice , THE jpa32 , also known as "jappy" , can roster ride where ever I go . He can also backup for a few classes if we need him and I nag him.

Also I changed my sensitivity by a lot today but my sniping feels fairly fine despite no muscle memory with it I guess. Liking sniper a lot, with soldier behind if I can get tried out for that.

Thanks for the comments

Yeah, I can smell him all the way through mumble. He is good at a lot of classes though, good pickup.

He outsniped me in a lotusclan upward server he's really good. His pyro play is one of the most annoying things to play against and I remember from season 9 the few times we scrimmed the cuties my team hated playing against him because he would stand far back behind his team and bodyshot people for 150 (he didn't even use the machina) and kill all of us. He made our sniper almost ragequit once then again it was snorlax and he goes for 360 quickscopes.

Bottomline is if you want someone to play the gayest as sniper and be the best at it you should pick him up. I can't really comment about any other class (other than pyro but you're not lft pyro) as I haven't seen you play it much.

Rain is my best friend :D He puts so much care and attention into every class that he plays, and is one of the most dedicated, hardworking teammates I've ever had. He never fails to let me down, and continues to be the most supportive awesome bro in the world. He understands the hardships of being a leader, and will make most if not all team events and scrims. His ability to multiclass strengthens his ability as a player, and will undoubtedly only get better the more he plays competitive.
Metawe is completely right. Rain probably plays the gayest most effective sniper you'll see. Never underestimate the power of a bodyshot. (Fun fact, his sniper rifle is named "Rain's Own Bodyshotter" and when he finally retires the weapon, he plans on putting on a headshot part so it looks like all those kills were bodyshots...hue). But that aside, hes actually been working on his sniper in general and is quite capable at playing a high level sniper (he can headshot just fine, it's not a conspiracy).
I've only seen his demo through mix pugs and lobbies (though he rang for cuties once as demo, tru facts), and he really seems to have fun with and enjoy the class. I haven't seen enough to really judge what level hes at, but give him a shot at it! He is mentored by THE monkey66 after all, who before he switched to medic, was one of the best demos I know.

Pick Rain up, and you will have one of THE coolest and most dedicated people gracing your soon-to-be-pro roster.

Has rang for us several times as sniper and soldier. Always been impressed with his play. Very calm and chill dude from the experiences I've had with him and would be a great addition to any gold team. Pick this dude up B)

Due to lack of teams lf snipers, and my hope dying I've decided to try pyro again. I prefer sniper but I don't mind pyro at this point.
