I feel the TF2 community is slowly dieing, my last few gameplays have been rather unpleasant, a lot of other players seem more like pricks now.
Not to mention no one really talks on the servers anymore...

I've been feeling this lately. It seems every server I join has a team with 4 engies, and another team with 4 snipers, 5 snipers or spies, but no matter what team I am on, I'm the only one not camping and actually playing the game.

I'm taking a short break from TF right now, I might get back into a week or two from now, or maybe when competitive ranking comes out.

I'm also tired of having a useless all gibus team. I hope the ranking system fixes this, and I really wish valve servers had class limits on sniper, spy and engie.

It's probably been over a year now since I've last played the actual game. I only play BBall, MGE, and jump servers now. Though those are also the only video games I play at all nowadays so I guess I'm not a very good representative of the "average player".

Yeah, I might as well pitch in on the lack of activity.

Finally decided to set a new goal for myself, which is to track down a certain professional killstreak syringe gun kit for fabricator. And maybe get a fitting scorching flames hat if I feel ballsy enough to unbox something, rich enough to want to buy (read greed out) one, or lucky enough to finally get an australium weapon and slowly work my way up from there.

Oh, and has anyone picked up on the news that there would finally be a matchmaking system in the game?

I heard about it, but not sure when it starts. Do you know?

Looking at multiple articles, all that I'm seeing is that it's a high-priority project (RIP in peace HL3).

We will have to wait and see what happens.

"eh" is right. Valve's main focus has been DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike these days

I think Valve is just slowly putting TF2 to rest, which is a shame. Ever since Kitty passed away, the community has really just been boring, not dickish, not inactive, but boring.


I got Tom to make a sig, bow down to me.

If TF2 comes to an end, it will be a sad day for many players and fans.

Yeah, but the userbase right now is shitty.

Overall, the userbase on online games is shitty. That's no excuse.
