I'm OK, but you should add a question mark onto the end of the thread title. Right now, it looks like you're asking to BE the credit, as opposed to asking others if THEY want to be the credit.

i suck at spy, even in training mode. my normal loadout is: le'tranger, spy-cycle, <the watch that regains cloak when you stand still>, and the ap-sap

Go with the stock knife and try using the dead ringer. The bots in training mode are always fooled by the dead ringer btw. If your using the dead ringer then probably stick with the le'tranger.

like Maximus said use the normal stock knife or the kuni knife what ever is is called with the dead ringer for traning but in multiplayer when you use the dead ringer try to get out of the way asap or your attacker may see you and kill you faster than you can say meard

I do really well with soldier thanks to how he was created to fill any role and at the same time be the easiest class to play. However I much preffer the more skillful characters such as Engineer or Sniper. I can really bing the pain with Engineer when I'm able to get a good position for a sentry and as such Engineer is a close second place to Soldier in my case. I often try to do sniper to give myself a challenge since I always like to test my skill to it's limit, and Sniper along with Spy are a great way to do it. I only wish I could aim better using the sniper rifles, I can't hlp but look like an idiot getting headshotted every ten seconds myself.

I play a mean invulnerability pocket medic. Crusader's crossbow/amputator for the increased health regeneration. Being very cautious, and always putting myself into the safest situation I can while pushing/building uber.
Reading the battlefield and knowing when to push up, or pull back- or even take a specific route to flank and focus the enemy heavy/medic by surprise has become like second nature to me, so I've become much more effective at acting as a leader... but some folks (newbs excluded. They don't know yet.) who are very good will sometimes even disregard when I say pull back, and get themselves killed. I knew that half the enemy team was going to storm through that area, so I get outta' there.
After they die, they go "medic, wtf whered you go?" as if It was my fault because I didn't stay to heal them. It was either we go- and live to get into a better position, or both of us would die. Not so bad- but losing all that built up uber, even at 50%, is crippling and can easily be the reason I don't have an uber ready when we need it.

I don't do it to "bark orders"- and I don't get mad about it, or obnoxiously type into chat saying "LisTEN Toooz meeh!", or insult anybody. I also don't want to tell anyone "how to play the game". Yunno', they can play how they want to. I wouldn't want someone telling me not to do what I want, so I try to stick to that philosophy.
The biggest issue I'm having is from some team-mates thinking I'm taking the game too seriously because I use the quick commands so frequently, and are probably a "tryhard ♥♥♥♥♥♥"- when in reality I'm just sitting here playing the game, having fun win or lose, and trying to be helpful. Some people have even spoken on mic or in chat insultingly at me as a person, when I havn't actually spoken/typed at all, or really even given them a good reason to be so upset.

So that said...My question, Without becoming a regular on a server with other players whom will get to know me, and I them...
Is there anything I can do so people pay attention to the orders I give via the C and X keys, and trust that I'm doing it for us all/both - At the same time, let people know I'm not barking orders with a bad additude, or taking the game too seriously?

eddie, i personally don't think there will be a time when that happens unless people know you're a good leader. everyone perceives things differently, some are understanding, others... not so much, but either way, i think starting a competitive play group would be good, as it keeps you in command, all the while having fun and a good challenge, maybe even a prize at the end. that MY perception of this, anyway :)

Experts know how to act around a good medic. They will defend him and (more or less) stay with him and follow his lead. Noobs, however, will let the medic die with fire. Lol this happened to me an hour ago. I was pocketing a heavy and we had a support pyro (noob). We were attacked by a dive bombing solder and then a suicide pyro. I ended up with 25 health and on fire. The noob pyro just looked at me and stared calling medic as I burned to death. After, I questioned him, asking him why he wouldn't extinguish me. He never responded :/

I am a great Sniper, but almost always get myself lost in the killstreaks and forget to be a vital part to the team.

Offline Training mode bots are.... very weird and very different from people when it comes to detecting spies.

For instance, they're oblivious to scouts moving at 100% speed, heavies wandering around sniper decks, medics never healing... whereas human players can and will twig to this (at least, some of them...). Likewwise, human players may well have damage numbers turned on, be carefully tracking their kill count, and noticing when a dropped weapon doesn't restore ammo -- all related to tells of the dead ringer.

...but their reflexes are unusually good, so clipping can mean death (at least at expert level), and sapping *may* result in being near-instantly detected or headshot for instance. Also, they act as a bit of a hive mind, whereas a lot of human players on lower-skill pubs won't call you out as a spy and won't necessary have a headset, and even if they do other human players will react more slowly than bots.

I wouldn't trust it as good for training spy, just because they're so different.

I'm confused, are you forgetting to take out vital members of the other team? (medic, heavy etc)
