    Oh yeah, I might as well answer too.

    - I do have a Green Confetti Trilby, but I don't use it in comp games because the effect ruins some hiding spots
    - I've got about 14 in / 360
    - I play Scout in HL, but I'm planning to start playing 6v6 too
    - I kind of like both. In my experience, the EU HL "scene" has less annoying people like shittalkers and whiners and such than 6v6 (of course everyone in 6s isn't like this, just based on people I've met)
    - Don't really have one that's a lot better than the other, nor do I hate any map too much (except maybe Gravelpit). Still, maps I enjoy most are probably Badlands or Snakewater in 6s and pretty much all KOTH and 5CP and Pro Turbine in Highlander (because I can actually do something as a Scout on those).
    - I use a Zowie EC2 eVo and a Puretrak Talent.

    Steam:

    - If you have an unusual, do you wear it in comp? What do you think about people who do and why?
    In 6s it doesn't really matter because there is no sniper, and in HL it doesn't really matter because it's only HL.

    - What's your sensitivity (inches per 360)?
    Like 3? Too lazy to move my wrist.

    - What classes do you play and in what format?
    Engi or medic.

    - 6v6 or Highlander, which do you prefer and wai?
    HL because in 6s you would actually need to be good.

    - WAT R UR FAVORIT MAPS TO PLAY ON AND ON WAT CLAS??????
    Viaduct.

    - Got any special gaming mouse or mat?
    Yes and no.

    Steam:

    - If you have an unusual, do you wear it in comp? What do you think about people who do and why?
    Nope, no unusuals.. they make no difference to gameplay, some say it makes you more vunerable to snipers, but then people use a no hat script to help them with headshots.. so you work it out.

    - What's your sensitivity (inches per 360)?
    About 5 inches, medic doesnt need such low sens imo.

    - What classes do you play and in what format?
    Main Medic, but also play heavy, engy, demoknight for the lulz

    - 6v6 or Highlander, which do you prefer and wai?
    Highlander, I find it more easy going than 6's

    - WAT R UR FAVORIT MAPS TO PLAY ON AND ON WAT CLAS??????
    Favourite maps, Badwater, swiftwater, viaduct_pro, upward


    - Got any special gaming mouse or mat?
    Mouse = razer deathadder
    Mat = Razer Mantis

    - What introduced you to comp tf2
    I used to play comp q3, so after i got used to tf2, it was a natural move for me. I first entered into it by playing lobbys, then progressed by joining 1rw and started entering leagues.
    Comp adds a new level of excitement to the game.




    and another question, what sort of format would you like to see added to the comp scene?
    Me, I would like to see a 7's format, no snipers and no spys.. perhaps this is because I play medic but find these classes are the hardest to counter, kinda unbalanced. just personal opinion.

    Steam:

    - If you have an unusual, do you wear it in comp? What do you think about people who do and why?
    i don't own one and i wouldn't wear it. i don't think much about people who do but for me when scouts have them, they're easier to hit.

    - What's your sensitivity (inches per 360)?
    my sens is 4. i don't pay attention to inches to 360 but it's probably 2.5 inches at most.

    - What classes do you play and in what format?
    i main scout and i play 6v6
    i sometimes play roamer solly and i can play a mean medic

    - 6v6 or Highlander, which do you prefer and wai?
    6v6 is better because it's not a cluster fuck like highlander. it's far more team oriented and imo more fun and rewarding.

    - WAT R UR FAVORIT MAPS TO PLAY ON AND ON WAT CLAS??????
    badlands, granary, and snakewater are my favorites. i liek sc0ut on aLl of ThEM.

    - Got any special gaming mouse or mat?
    for mouses i switch off between the logitech g500 and g400. right now i'm using the g500.
    my mousepad is the rocketfish control hardmat.
    i know you didn't ask but for a keyboard i use the razer blackwidow ultimate mechanical keyboard.

    -What introduced me to comp tf2?
    my sister's boyfriend. in fact he got me into tf2 all together.

    In November, 2011, a friend of mine (one of the TF2 Wiki translators) asked if I want to join the Wiki Highlander team. ETF2L promised medals.
    I played sub Pyro, but nobody got medals in the end. Faggots.

    Steam:

    - If you have an unusual, do you wear it in comp? What do you think about people who do and why?

    I have an unusual stormy Mongolian, but I don't play heavy in comp, so no I don't wear it. I think people that wear it just want to seem imposing. For instance, a roamer with no hat might be a bit more sneaky and better at getting picks, but a roamer with a orbiting fire spartan will catch the eye of the entire enemy team, and therefore better impose his presence. TF2 cosmetics are just a big mind-game in my opinion.

    - What's your sensitivity (inches per 360)?

    4.86 sens, dunno about in per 360. Might check tomorrow.

    - What classes do you play and in what format?

    Engi, sniper, and demo in HL, roamer in 6's. I know a lot of people prefer to roam in hl, but 6's just gives you so much more space to jump and bomb than hl does.

    - 6v6 or Highlander, which do you prefer and wai?

    6's, emphasis on the player is higher, and you can really get down to the nitty gritty of how a team is composed. For instance, shutting down a great demo or protecting your star scout can create an entire playstyle, where as hl just seems so much more concrete. Snipers snipe, spy's get picks/relay info, heavy classes deal damage, light classes pick off kills. Pyro protects the team in general, and there you go, the most successful strategy of any top hl team in the past 3/4 seasons. 6's is just so much more dynamic, from the double roamer strat to double pocket to roaming demo and all sorts of crazy stuff that can end up working if your team plays it right, the game just seems so much more fun when you can play however you want with your team as long as you practice enough with your team and still be good.
    - WAT R UR FAVORIT MAPS TO PLAY ON AND ON WAT CLAS??????

    cp_gravelpit as any non-medic class.

    - Got any special gaming mouse or mat?

    nope

    -I have a question. What introduced you to comp tf2?

    Was watching one of star's early video's and saw a link to a frag vid, went on and looked up commft and watched like, all of seasons 4-6 of ESEA invite. Then I went to my favorite saxton server and a friend by the name of svenphantom approached me about playing hl in ugc, and I said sure. Been playing ever since :D

    - If you have an unusual, do you wear it in comp? What do you think about people who do and why?
    Depends really, i like to wear it but at times its just not possible.
    Like the other day, i was hiding behind some rocks for a medic pick, and a sniper picked me off as soon as i put my head out.
    When i asked, he said he could see my unusual effect above the crate....
    I don't mind others wearing it. If you got it, flaunt it, just don't complain when you are made a target more.

    - What's your sensitivity (inches per 360)? i'm not sure what it is, but i use a 8200 dpi variable gaming mouse.

    - What classes do you play and in what format?
    I play Demo in Highlander, I used to play 6v6 a little bit.

    - 6v6 or Highlander, which do you prefer and wai?
    Atm, Highlander, its more sociable and fun. I i still say 6v6 is the best competitive

    - WAT R UR FAVORIT MAPS TO PLAY ON AND ON WAT CLAS??????
    SWIFTWATER what is there not to love about the map.
    Demo, getting the Charge Caber on Defence is rewarding :P

    - Got any special gaming mouse or mat?
    Gaming Mouse. Gigabyte Aivia Krypton
    Gaming Keyboard, i'm not buying one until i calm down a bit.
    I have a cheap keyboard which has survied everything from food to showers to alcohol to fists. Kinda attached
