Everyone that helped me with this is a mega awesome person and I appreciate it a bunch, thanks guys!
Next, here is a rather complete list of people who have helped me in any respect in TF2, and thus are also responsible for this guide and all the content I have released recently for existing in the first place.Overseer, Downpour, Sheep, Huey Lewis, Dashner, Nomadic, cowbeef, Gareth G.C., paradox, and Frank West
: Also known as team Tangerine S6/S7. Overseer is an awesome person who gets a special mention as she got me on Tangerine in the first place which improved my game quite substantially and made me play Spy again after initially giving up on it. I could write many paragraphs about how awesome everyone on this list is, but instead I will cut it short: everyone on this list are great people and rad friends, are responsible for being a part of the most fun I have ever had on TF2, and are all extremely skilled players who I care about a lot.
Also our video is sick because Dashner owns:Blaze, Yz50, SolidSnake, move-, Radio Raheem, and TLR
: This was the team of competitive players that I played against in the Clash of the Steam Titans game. At this point I was just giving competitive TF2 a try but wasn't really sure if it was worth it, and my game with these guys basically sealed the deal and got me to play competitive TF2 in the first place, without them I wouldn't have met most of the people I like or even be writing this guide at all. All really awesome people, and I gotta give a shout out to Blaze and Yz50 especially since they helped me get on my feet as far as competitive goes.Lou Lou (aka Lt. Cyndi Lauper)
: Pretty much the "Huey Lewis of spies" so to speak, Lou Lou was doing everything you see current spies doing (trickstabs, Scout disguise, using Revolver properly) back in the hey days of TF2 and is pretty much the forerunner of what a good Spy should be. Every single well known Spy today from Noko to Stabby Stabby have their playstyles derived from this guy knowingly or not really. He died on Feb. 8th, 2011 and was a great person whose videos made me want to play Spy in the first place. R.I.P.
Here's a great video of him:DLman
: Lou Lou may have been the originator of what a good Spy should be, but DL was at one point one of the most famous spies in the game. He was a good Spy and he pulled it off against Invite level 6v6 TF2 players often. I've barely talked to the guy mind, but the footage of him playing and his experience and some of the advice he gave me early on were all great and he's a pretty big reason for why I wanted to be a great Spy in the first place.People from Team Prokemans, Mission Five, and Just 4 Fame
: You all know who you are I hope. Without you guys I probably would have quit competitive TF2 before I even got to try Highlander, as playing TF2Lobby was starting to get boring.Ozma, Fujimo, Saya, Ninetales, and Neophyte
: You guys got special mentions cause you all rock and are good friends.
