GAMES Team fortress 2 is free to play...

I didn't see a thread about this which kinda surprises me it's about 10 gigabytes over steam, I have tried repeatedly to get into this one but it seems that there is no real strategy. Everyone just runs around no one ever storms a specific side of the map or gets a squad of important class types together. Maybe the public servers are just that way.

The game gets really high reviews and I'm not sure why it looks nice and feels right but it feels very random to me. Nonetheless if your dsl service doesn't throttle too much of your data bandwidth you might want to give it a try

I haven't played in a long long while, but my primary issue with TF2 (and LFD) was the poorly written netcode. Everyone moved around at different speeds, skipping and teleporting players mixed in with smooth fully-pathed players. Made for really jumpy, crappy gameplay.

Hopefully the latest chaos is just the noob effect. That can go away.

The noobs are just adorable. Their medics often keeps healing me while backstab with the Eternal Reward through tons of their allies and they don't have a clue.
But fresh meat is only nice as long as it's not on your own team.

But the game crashed more often after the update for me and the server browser works like shite sometimes (didn't get a list at all until the last patch but still can't add servers to the backlist).


Just a hint: avoid Saigns and Nighteam server. They both fake their player counts so that is always displays 21-23 of 24 players so that you immediately want to join, just to see that it's only 7 guys playing then (or bots). And they also offers premium accounts to anyone who donates for their servers and those accounts are just something like official cheats and ruin the whole fun for anyone who does not pay:

Not worth the 10 GB. The game itself takes about 3 minutes to launch, and you STILL have to download maps that should've came with the game.

When you join Omni, you also have to download maps "that should've come with the game".


So let me get this straight: Just because some community mappers in TF2 have the skills to create maps that can be confused for official ones in quality and Valve did not make them official maps yet (because, oh surprise, Valve lets players donate for community mappers in the store and the more maps there are, the bigger the financial management effort), although that would force you to download even more than the 10 GB you complain about, you are angry because you don't need to download maps for gametypes you might not even play? Ok…


The Source engine is indeed known for long loading times, but they were already shortened in TF2 in compare to HL2. I have a modern HDD and launching the game doesn't take particularly long, though it tends to crash sometimes when exiting and then it takes forever to get Windows fully responsive again.

I've never had a problem with this game. Must be user error =P

Loading times have always been good, never seen users glitch or anything like that.

Only thing that kind of erks me is it updates a lot.

Ut2004 maps don't take very long to download, what we get is the compressed .uz2 from the server redirect, which gets saved as a a .uxx file.

Valve really should disallow that

You're new so they probably didn't like what ever noobish things you were doing. That's why I played it once and haven't played since.

The game has lost its charm, got bloated by so much items that mess up the game balance just for the sake of adding new content and keep milking the cash cow. The Christmas update was imho the worst so far and I lost pretty much interest in the game. Besides that the netcode became unbearable with all that much different items and customization. Can't play a minute in the game without getting horrible lag and packetloss or even disconnects from the server - with only 18 people on the server!
