Spy Help
I really enjoy playing spy, and I'm decent, but I just can NOT seem to manage to learn trickstabs. Are there people who can help out? I've looked up all the videos but I cannot do any stabs consistently. At all. Seriously. Maybe link me to really good videos? I watch Stabby Stabby, and I can't seem to imitate his style, if that helps. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Simple.
Don't try to do things that don't fit your style.

Practice. You're not going to to master Spy over night.
Try to master the easier trick stabs (corner stabs, drop stabs) and work your way up (matador and stair stab).
Also, when you stair stab, make sure you crouch jump. A lot of people forget that.

Thanks. I use both styles of spy (combat and sneaky), but I'd just like to improve the combat.

'Trickstabs' are cancer. All it is is abusing the backstab radius that all knives have.

I know, but they're useful as hell

Also, an FYI: People like stabby have little to nothing in the way of a life and practically play TF2 as a job

Haha, fair enough

Download tr_walkway its just a test map with bots but it has alot of settings for the bots and other options its a good map to pratice aim with weapons or any kinds of tricks.

I've got that, and I practice dropstabs and stairstabs on it a lot

In any event, they're not something to rely on. Always be ready with your revolver, because many people will anticipate such things as stairstabs...

That's true as well. If you know they're of a particular skill level (either higher or otherwise), you can determine what to use.
