Tf2 won't start. Every time I try, it insists on validating the file cache. Whenever I validate the file cache on tf2, it always stops at 100% and won't actually complete. So every time I try to start, it keeps doing that and the game itself will not run.

Based on my googling I have tried:
*Defragmenting the file cache(worked for a while, but doesn't anymore. It just immediately jumps to a full bar and doesn't list the total clusters or anything. 1/ )
*Defragging the entire hard drive (again, worked for a while but now it doesn't)
*Deleting/renaming clientregistry.blob (didn't work)
*Renaming the tf2 folder and doing a fresh reinstall (worked for all of one night, and verification would still halt at 100%)
*Did a disk check to see if anything was wrong with my hard drive, including scanning for and attempting recovery of bad sectors. (nope)
*Completely reinstall Steam as well as ALL of my games, AND move Tf2 to my SSD since fragmentation doesn't mean dick on SSDs (again, worked for all of one night)

I'm at wit's end. The only thing I've done that seems to make it start is play TFC for a little bit. Probably a coincidence and I just have to wait a few minutes... or maybe it just gets jealous and decides to run for me. (I did play half life source for a little bit the other day but that didn't fix it... TFC did. So that's creepy. Then again, I didn't play hl:s for as long as TFC.)

Anyone have any idea what the hell ass balls is going on? Google has failed me.

So today I visited the TF2 Wiki, looking for some information on a map I'm going to use in a fanfiction.

And then this happened: http://tf2wiki.net/wiki/Maps

Um.... So, is this, like, the result of a trollfest gone undetected, or... Yeah, I think that's it.

From what I've read, tf2wiki.net used to be the best, but everyone working on it moved over to the wiki.teamfortress project when it was Valve-sanctioned. Since then the domain got bought out by someone else who just uses it for ad revenue.

If you're a redditor, one of the official wiki mods is doing an Ask Me Anything right now (http://www.reddit.com/r/tf2/comments/l7sil/i_am_a_long_time_moderator_on_the_official_team/), so I guess you can ask for clarification on what happened since everything I know is probably, what, fourth hand information.

I had it bookmarked. Didn't know there were two (started figuring something was up around the Uber Update, but didn't really find out for sure until just now). So, yup.

Think of all the classic 4 simultanious co-op arcade games and add a dash of TF2 and you've got what looks to be quite an interesting game

What are songs you associate with the classes?
Hard mode: Nothing from Tf2 or remixes with their voice clips and such.

Soldier: America Fuck Yeah!
Demoman: Princes of the Universe
Pyro: Living in the Sunlight

Hehe... my father loves that sort of weird old Brit stuff, so I grew up listening to the Bonzos. Still my favoritest band of all time.

And, uh, as for the thread.... my Helmet Party theme is "Better", by Jonathan Coulton, and my Sniper/Spy theme is "Bungle in the Jungle" by Jethro Tull. Despite Medic being my favorite of the team, the only song I've ever found myself associating with him in earnest is "I Want To Break Free" by Queen.

Oh, okay. Well for "MEDIC!", MaxOfS2D put a download link in the description of the video he uploaded with the track. You can just right click the link and save it as an MP3. But for "A Little Heart to Heart" there's nothing else I can recommend.

Whelp gang, it's official, tomorrow I'm graduating from "proverbial scum of the earth" to a competent, fully fuctioning member of Orange society

It's been a long, difficult road getting a feel for this game. I originally started off as a scout but later gravitated towards engineer and later Pyro (where I now have solid footing)

So, what lies ahead for me now in this strange new world of delights?

>Expect to be called out on using OP classes (all of them), called a no-skill nubcaek, trolled, etc.
Also expect to be called "raging" or "mad" (constantly expressed as UMAD LOLOLOL) by people you kill in honest combat.
Notice that these people have never heard of 4chan, or any chan for that matter.

Despite the fact that one moves forward by way of the W key, and shoots their primary weapon's primary fire by way of the left hand mouse button (M1), be prepared for people to hate on you for using both at the same time.
Especially if you're a Pyro.

...and I'm all dressed up in my best camo pants and psyched to play.

...The only problem is that I'm a noob. Worse still, I'm a noob with anxiety issues, making me absolutely terrified of being a noob.

Do you guys have any tips to make me less anxious over this, or any suggestions over servers I should use? It's not like I want, or expect, to be suddenly AWESOME because that's ridiculous, but I just want to be able to actually click on a link without cacking myself from trepidation beforehand. I've practiced offline, and I can play alright if I'm with my friends on a private server, but where's the fun in that?

TL;DR, server suggestions plz

Pic related, automatic assumption of people's reactions to me.

These show up often when people ask for UK servers:
Kritzkast - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/KritzKast
Hampshire Heavies - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/hampshire_heavies
Überium - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/uberiumpublic
Facepunch - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/FPTF2UK

These are UK based with settings that shit all over balance, but they appear to have some mod servers and overpopulation doesn't affect most mods:
UKCS - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/UKCS
Gaming Masters - http://steamcommunity.com/groups/gamingmastersuk
GTFOGaming - http://www.gtfogaming.co.uk/servers/

Since you have friends who play the game, you should ask one of them to coach you. It's fun AND helpful!

>I think my real problem is that I psych myself out too much before I start playing.
When I started out PvPing in WoW I got these awesome adrenaline rushes that often lead to my death (if any of you have had adrenaline rushes you know it completely shuts down your ability to do anything you haven't practiced A LOT).

Same thing with TF2, although I still get it to this day (started 2007), your body and mind works up an immunity to the shit, allowing you to think clearly.

Maybe TF2 is just some hardcore shit, because I didn't get an adrenaline rush when I was playing paintball inna woods, or maybe it's just because I take every death in TF2 with a mindset that I'll never outlive the eternal shame that has been brought upon me.

Just play the game and you'll see what happens.

That's why I can't PvP in WoW, I start getting rushes so my fingers never hit the right buttons and I end up randomly rocket jumping off a ledge or something. TF2 is different for me, though, generally everyone is more laid back and mistakes are funny as opposed to stupid.
