Why haven't you given up playing this game yet?

For the longest time I found the game fun, the WAR! update being the highlight of that time.

Then the Mannconomy happened.

I still played for fun but I traded ALOT too.

I eventually traded more than I played.

Then I wasn't able to play at all and I was gone for awhile.

Now when I play the game it is nothing like, NOTHING like, the game I played before the Mannconomy update, and I main Demoman (which is still best stock).

I installed the no-cosmetics mod and I still mainly play Demoman, but wow. WOW.

This game just isn't the same, spies are completely fucking useless or overpowered now, no middle ground.

Everything is so damn gimmicky that I don't know who's doing what. The player base certainly took a shit too.

The game is easier much of the time for me now because of the player base, but not anymore fun.

The players that do well do so incomprehensibly. Nothing is clear and concise anymore in what used to be a very beautifully simple and easy to understand game.


And bugs and balances issues that have been around since before the WAR! update are still around, so are most of the new ones from each consecutive update.

Valve shit on this game, the community shit on this game, and if you enjoy it now more than ever you'd probably like War Z, Lead and Gold (which at least didn't destroy its aesthetics), CrimeCraft GangWars, and the abomination Tribes: Ascend became.

I still have TF2 on my PC though. I've just invested so much time in it.

And I keep hoping that one day, Valve will sweep in like the King of Rohan cured of his curse and fix this game.

well it's obvious why you stopped playing.

I'm still here because I actually enjoy the game.
>> No. 13703
I keep playing the game because it's fun. Simple as that.

Go back to SPUF faggot
>> No. 13704
Good for you. Go play on a vanilla server if it bugs you so much. Or start your own.

Another one here playing the game because.. oh, I dunno... it's still fun? Or maybe that's because I play with my friends, 99.9% of which I have met through TF2 even after the f2pocalypse

Lots of angry and defensive posts here.

I wonder why :)

Well, I guess you got about half of the remaining population's jimmies rustled. Good job.
>> No. 13715
I have a love-hate relationship with TF2, but it's with the community, not the devs or the actual content of the game itself. I'm aware Valve can't patch out lag or racist/sexist/homophobic assholes, and that every game online has these same problems, so I deal with it.
>> No. 13722
I'm here because tf2 is a fun game I can play with my friends. Now that TF2 is free to play, I can game with anyone on a mac or pc or linux.
>> No. 13738
If you want a simple, easy-to-understand game that never gets more complicated, go get an N64 and a copy of Mario Kart and have yourself a wank. In the meantime, Valve wants to keep people playing TF2 for more than a few weeks, so it’s got to update.
>> No. 13786

By adding more promo hats & miscs and not adding a reload animation on 3rd person on Pomson or fix the guns wich makes them spill cartidges out from their character's mouth? Yeah.
>> No. 13787
>>13786
Adding more customization options for those who want it, at the expense of not fixing tiny bugs that have no effect on gameplay? Sounds fine to me.

Dude, I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure my gameplay/gameplay experience improved after I got a Battle Bob for the Soldier.

Because I looked so goddamn fabulous the other team couldn't even handle me.
>> No. 13802
I still enjoy it and I have a good group of tf2 friends. Also I love mvm. Problem is, I have satellite internet now and my ping averages 600 so....yeah. I miss tf2.

Admin Edit: Gentlemen Protocol test; Crudely written text replaced with text of a more classy variety. Would you like to see more of this, y/n? For reference this time only, the original text was "what a bunch of nooby faggots."

I still play the game because there are still a lot of idiots who need healing; additionally, there are still too many teleporters not facing the right way.

When those things change, I'll leave and come back the next week to do it again. That or try to get Final Combat to work, lol.

ADMINISTRATOR NOTIFICATION: "WHAT HO, CHAPS! A FAIR LAD HAS UTTERED THE SLUR OF HOMOSEXUALITY WITHIN THEIR POST UPON THIS FINE IMAGEBOARD. I POSIT, IN JEST, THAT MY SENSIBILITIES ARE OFFENDED AT THE SIGHT OF SUCH A WORD, ONE THAT IS CLEARLY UNBEKNOWNST TO THESE PARTS OF THE INTERNET! THUS CONCLUDES MY SARCASTIC SPIEL, WHEREUPON I IMPROVED THE OFFENDING POST WITH ALL DUE HASTE!"

I like the gentlemanly protocol. Seems like a good thing. I only see an issue with it if it were to be employed as a filter, in the fanfiction area. I know a lot of people have characters use slurs within the stories, so it could be an issue there.

But otherwise I like.
>> No. 14026
No thank you.
>> No. 14027
>>14025
To clarify, it's not a filter, it's manual editing. It would never be applied to someone else's fiction posts.
>> No. 14031
I love the voices;
I love cel shaded art.
I love cosmetics;
though they don't push the cart.
I love the whole game.
And all its wacky sights.

Boom De Yada; Boom De Yada!
Boom De Yada; Boom De Yada!

Also, may this be applied to any future abuses now and forever more.

Well, then, old chap, I must say I heartily approve, what ho!
>> No. 14036
I'd be a bigger fan if the goddamn bots would spawn in MvM. I love that mode, as it provides good stress relief from pvp play, but now they're pretty much unplayable.
>> No. 14256
I haven't given up because I have a lot of friends who play and a server group who does things other than TF2, so its a nice cycle. I cannot play serious TF2 anymore to save my life unless I am an Engineer or a Pyro, so I enjoy more casual servers (like the Mantrain).

I don't trade, I toss most of my MvM parts, and I've swapped out a lot of my normal weapons for stranges... but I only visit the same five servers when I do play. I am hoping to actually cycle the Mantrain back into my servers list.... and I plan on donating a good chunk of my tax returns into funding the rest of the server cost.

Let me then preemptively offer you our gratitude!
