How to idle [u]correctly[/u][i](for dummies)[/i].
The current method of idling: 1) Open TF2 2) Join any server 3) Wait.
Allow me to explain: As we all know, the best maps for idling are the ones that have a [b]trigger_hurt[/b] where the players spawn.
But the common party-pooper appears and does his best to annoy idlers. This includes: Pushing them away of the death area. Building healing dispensers next to them. Healing them. Airblasting away.
This will horribly ruin your "most time played" stats.
How to make sure you WILL die: join a server and write this on console:
[b]+attack[/b] This will make you fire your weapon, totally neutralizing auto-kickers.
[b]alias idle "kill; wait 4000; idle"[/b] This is a custom command called "idle". It will make you suicide every 4000 frames in an endless loop.
[b]idle[/b] This activates your custom command
IT CAN BE DONE ON ANY SERVER ON ANY MAP! Our new idling areas include: cpdustbowl plgoldrush
To stop the commands:
-attack alias idle "wait 20" idle
(you must write the custom command's name everytime you update it)
If you can script, you can bind it to a button, so it toggles.
(or you can just join spectate team, but I doubt VALVe will allow spectating idlding for much longer)
I hope it helps! Happy idling.
