Would you happen to know an article or list for the official ages for the mercs? The tf2 wiki currently doesn't show their ages in their bios and I was just curious. I've seen posts around with Scout's age but what about the others? (I've seen some stuff of the mercs such as sniper being 26 years old and spy around 45)
At this point in time, the only actual confirmed age is Scout’s at 27-ish.
Everyone else’s age at this point is just speculation or personal headcanons. However, if you look, there are some well-thought out guesstimates.
Here’s aReddit postanda Tumblr post where two separate estimates have been made (Reddit guesses on left, Tumblr on right):
Soldier: 52, give or take 4 years / 51
Demo: 35-ish / over 30
Heavy: 45 / 38-40
Engineer: 54 / 55
Medic: Late 30s to Mid 50s / ???
Sniper: No older than 40 / 30
Spy: 50s / 50.
Pyro: ???we just don’t know??? / ????
All of these, however, are just guesses, so people are free to come up with their own ideas. My very general guesstimates are:
Soldier: Low-to-Upper 40s Demo: 35-ish works for me Heavy: Mid-40s Engineer: Low-to-Upper 40s (depends how young he started college-level classes) Medic: Mid-to-Upper 40s Sniper: Low-to-Mid 30s Spy: Low-to-Upper 40s Pyro: An immortal lightbulb
But, until word of canon speaks, anyone is free to make their own guesstimates because nothing here except Scout’s age is actually official. So go ahead, headcanon the merc’s ages how you want, and have some fun with that freedom.
Lesson 27: -아/어 봤어요, have tried (something), have experienced (something)
In Lesson 19 we looked at how to ask someone politely to try or attempt to do something using -아/어 보다(보세요). In this post we’re going to learn how to say you already have tried/attempted/experienced something. There are different ways of saying this in Korean, but we’ll do the easiest one today.
-아/어 봤어요 is used to express a past experience. It is used with verbs. If the final vowel before the end of the verb stem is 아 or 오 then -아 봤어요 is added. If the final vowel before the end of the verb stem is anything other than 아 or 오 then -어 봤어요 is added. If the verb ends with -하다, the 하다 becomes -해 봤어요 instead.
