Yes it does
it does but it's hegemonic design has doomed it to die in a ditch
we just happen to be on that ditch
your mom is hegemonic in design
random crits are literally the most hegemonic videogame mechanic to ever exist.
getting a free critical hit the most dps you make.
play tfc or fortress forever
pls i need more people playing these dead games ):
I have more fun playing lobbies.
I've got so many weapons named by old /vg/.
Realistically how long until we get TF3 lads?
I want to see STAR_ and Jerma playing it again
I miss the days of 2014
Chances are I've rolled for one, Did you post on tf2g?
never forget that pootis defense force team made by that really anti-semitic dragon fucker from dota
how much do y'all think valve would sell tf2 for?
(asking incase if i ever become a billionaire accidentally, as one does)
You guys should try TF2 Classic it's comfy
If Pass Time was made by Bad Robot why are there no lens flares???
link? i can't keep up with all these open source variants of tf2
is it easy to find games with players innit?
Literally just a modernized fan version of beta TF2. Now that the download's back it has a sizeable playerbase at all times.
>>20994>no idea what the logic is there.
Blizzard is still kicking themselves over letting DOTA escape their clutches.
I imagine Bethesda's attempt to monetize mods a few years ago also has an influence. From the major studio perspective, letting the little people use THEIR GAME to make and enjoy content FOR FREE without being able to profit from it is tantamount to being robbed.
why is my pc leaking mustard gas after clicking this link
I prefer playing cs1.6
>>20754>reinstall tf2 after years and log into 8 year old f2p account>still have shit on it because i had traded up from a scrap someone gave me in a trade server to a bunch of hats>start bullshit matchmaking process>get put in an empty server full of bots>exit and start matchmaking again>5 min later get put in a server>aimbotting sniper is killing everyone>votekick it>try to use mic>"F2P accounts can't use mic">try to use text chat>"F2P accounts can't use chat">quit
I miss firing up TF2, joining the highest pop Mountainlab or PL upwards server, and trying to demoknight people
try community servers
Good to see at least one guy who tries to get people to fuck around with the game like in the early TF2 rather than use canned strats and obsess over meta.
TF2 is still popular on youtube + good meta-gaming with the title and thumbnail = viral video
SFM TF2 stuff still does gang-busters. I think Elmaxo and others like Dane are the exceptions when it comes to "essay" type videos though.
As an aside, some loser made a video accusing Fatmagic of cheating and after watching both videos they made I wanted to curse them for wasting my time with such pointless shit.
well there hasn't been any interesting mystery/arg/oddity tf2 content or valve content in general in the past years. yeah there was that stupid backrooms thingy but big soy is the only other one I can think of and generally mystery/arg-exploration videos get a lot of views (source: the entire mutahar's career)
What so special or shocking about it? Like everyone knew he's a furry already before. That "cope" stream with him explaining how he did not really use a big booty pyro mod is pretty funny though, I give him that.
Who is this? Why should I care?
Seriously, all of you need to cool it with the e-celebs and their drama. There are few things more trivial.
Pyrocynical picking the funny booty pyro mod that like 5 others tf2 youtubers already showcased (and nobody mocked them for it)
he's also doing "funny" crossdressing because stealing OnlyAfro gimmick is easy.
>>20774>it's hegemonic design <a game that doesn't refer to IRL at all
Better question, how do I get invited to a threesome with these guys?
This is what skill-based matchmaking took from us
Violently advocate for a return to community dedicated servers
im confused by both of your posts
hegemonic means like a supreme power that controls everything
like us is a hegemonic state, TF2 controls what?>>22533
agreed my fav tf2 moent is discovering x10 mario servers from quickplay
is it really not possible for their pic related stuff to happen in the new m*tchmaking mode?
i thought i was being an old coot, but nah i was right, esports and capitalist virutes to turn everything, even an ironically lootbox based game into an e-sports style matchmaking game was horrid
all the twitchoids and e-celebs pushed it so hard for their e-bucks
stay away from seductress
come to me instead 👉€😣👈
>>22537>i thought i was being an old coot, but nah i was right, esports and capitalist virutes to turn everything, even an ironically lootbox based game into an e-sports style matchmaking game was horrid
You're getting it wrong though, the competitive scene in TF2 was born organically long before e-sports were even a thing and Valve half-assedly implemented a matchmaking feature that nobody likes.
>>22537>is it really not possible for their pic related stuff to happen in the new m*tchmaking mode?
literally yes, i had that same experience
. you make friends by running into the same people in the same shared space repeatedly over a period of time, learning whose sense of humor is similar to your own and sho on. this is just not possible when the experience of hanging out in a voluntarily chosen shared space is replaced with getting automatically matched with randoms who you never see again in order to force a ~50% win rate designed to maximize daily engagement and loot box spending
But community servers are still a thing.
Yeah the comp scene uses lobbies to play together. Nobody who is "into" TF2 uses matchmaking regularly. There's no excuse.
not really, its kind of lame and overrated. its also stale as hell because valve has abandoned it.
community server search engine is absolute ass and extremely tiny
it's very buggy, quickplay was goated>>22563>you make friends by running into the same people in the same shared space repeatedly over a period of time, learning whose sense of humor is similar to your own and sho on
Im gonna dominate my local 24/7 2 fort server community server in hopes of getting a gf 😎
It's not like there's that many servers to search and you can sort them by ping.
Imagine playing TF2 on max settings and getting comp tf2 mode fps…
I love TF2 so much, it's unreal, It's still as beautiful as the first day I saw ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99i8a9PAQ5I
I think the CPU>GPU still rings true based on these benchmarks
>>22703>I think the CPU>GPU still rings true based on these benchmarks
It will always be the case unless Valve reworks the whole engine for the game.
what's your setup? how many frames does it moan out in TF2
The El Maxo "Bing Soy" vid hit like 4 million views
I think it got exposed even to the normie crowd that just likes watching long vids on youtube
I hope he doesn't burn himself out on those 10K kill videos he is pushing out,
It's been a long time since we've had a popular TF2 creator
The last one I can remember was like FUNKe
>100 fps on TF2 stock with a GT 710
TEAM FORTRESS IS THE PEOPLE'S GAME!i know he was using a i7https://www.teamfortress.com/post.php?id=143572WE ALSO GOT 2 UPDATES IN THE SAME DAY!!!
dude tf2 is cpu-bound your graphic card is almost irrelevant in the equation
Maybe explainer vids of "e-history" like IH and Justin Whang are just good evergreen content
Putting aside that Bing Soy isn't "e-history", anyway
Yeah, I'm still surprised at how little it matters lol
I'd say it's good for TF2's popularity as GPU prices soar, but CPUs the main component of PCs keep getting more powerful
We stay goated and accessible still more than any other game in the Top 10>>22809
I actually still haven't watched it lol, I consider stuff like this on youtube be basically documentaries or retrospectives
It's good binge content
Vsync is lag galore.
ALSO SCREAM FORTRESS IS COMING!!>>22929
i'm a tf2 kulak bros.

Wake up babe
It's time to CREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM
No gameplay fixes? No weapons?

what are the best binds to have, i'm not a comp medic
Fixed walkable ledge near mid
Fixed match summary screen for competitive mode
Created some space between spawn points and door trigger in first forward spawn
Minor visual fixes
Make sure to play the game and sell cases to rich kids anon
Ghoulish GAINS case indeed
I've made so much money off tf2. I miss when cashing out was easier.
I keep getting offers for my spelled items to cash out
Is the way to do it still, keys - paypal, 1.50$??
what did you do with your TF2 profits
Paypal is super risky. Chargebacks occur all the time and they will side with the fraudster over digital items. Convert your TF2 items to high value CSGO items and then sell it on a reputable 3rd party site (there's tons).
It's such a huge download. That's the main reason i dont play.
I would send you a cd out of compassion if I could :(
wow, i fucking hate paypal>>23220
it's just 22gs anon-chan, please consider
COD is like 100gigs
you're getting a good deal!

This game sucks now. RIP.
no, they have a few more hats that's it
play community servers if you want, it's fast and no bots
Try and pawn off most of your shitty stocks to some petty bourgeois type. Lie ruthlessly about his chances and keep some of the shit stock for yourself so that when you inveitably lose you lose with him. Dont tell him theyre your stocks, theyre a "friends".
After selling off your shit stocks go and invest in weapons firms and water speculation firms that own most of the American hemisphere's water supply in their pockets. The Amazon's water supply is a fucking goldmine I'm serious. Block the retard you swindled and gaslight any lose ends as best as you can.
After that see if you can move whatever assets you have into recession proof (historically) goods like art or whatever, lost 7k yesterday because of some shitty real estate bubble fucking up with my moves
Also crypto, as cringe as it is, still isnt taxed properly, so if you can move into the most stable shitcoins to preserve your value. Food production is also great, as well as overseas shipping. Make sure to invest in staples though, grain is through the roof (thakns putler). Also, the USA has sucessfully destroyed the EUs energy independence it had, so invest into USA's fossil exports. Theyre golden
>>23353>invest in water speculation firms
Risky move, in the long run all water supply will be nationalized.
Once water becomes scarce enough, it becomes a tool for deciding over life and death, and then governments will take control of it. They won't let you have that power, you'll have a stock certificate, and they have men with guns.
The state births the government. Water will be nationalized sure then make sure you are part of that nationalization process, because the state is more likely to turn to fascism than socialism
Don't change the subject, water-speculation is bad investment advice regardless.
ive made my money back
when did keys crash again? i swear they were reach 60 ref
is anybody selling their mutated milk
fucking insane, water really is being traded like gold
so if i invest in stocks it should be food producing companies or import/export companies? thanks
Because of the weak grain shipments from Ukrain im betting on other companies to expand to fill the gaps.
Don't farmers still need potash from Russia and Belarus to make fertilizer? Canada alone doesn't have enough potash production for the whole world and I'm familiar with how the Canadians absolutely fucked over their own potash sector through privatization so I don't expect much long term planning or reserve capacity from them. As long as the companies comply with Western sanctions against Russia and Belarus there's a severe hard cap on how much food production can expand since farmers can't produce as much with fertilizer prices going up and the WEF fucking around with "organic" fertilizers to cripple food production. I mean all glory to based Lukashenko and our anti imperialist allies for inflicting pain on the West, but idk on a personal level how the business model of investing into Western food companies makes sense with farmers handicapped in so many ways.
I agree on investing in weapon companies for american imperialism gainsmaxxing and cryptocurrency for tax evasion; I already knew that. Tbh I'm going to hold onto my Chinese stocks anyways because I think they'll recover since the communists really need FDI inflows especially with zero covid hindering their economy. Outside of a Taiwan war which I don't view as particularly likely I should be gucci long term.
Im betting on soy exporters in Brazil and Paraguay to grow, personally
also I'm betting on that poor supply making prices grow, personally I'd go with Spain
speaking of, I really need to learn mandarin, the peoples stock market seems pretty good to buy up
Massive legends. Such a waste Valve isn't doing anything with the characters.
every day i wake up and there's a new update
what the fuck is there updating to do
this is really spaghetti code>>23555
you said it right wanker, it's sad they're all getting old and those hippies just don't want to do anything with tf2 anymore
>>20754>download the game due to this thread>start playing>can't use chat function>can't use voice function >how the fuck do I do things with the engineer again? Click all the keys, nothing works >change character>next to last place, really sucking balls<get kicked out mid game for "being a bot"
wasnt valve investigated for possible money laundering schemes done by the russian mafia or whatever?
literally all made up prices
After playing this game for over 11 years I have only started really trying out spy outside of some niche applications like terrorizing the engineers in the Doublecross Intel room and I can now say with certainty that I now know true pain. What a horrible class.
Spy is the most frustrating class of them all. Really hard to master and way less fun to play since Valve nerfed the spy's most effective weapons: the dead ringer and the ambassador. You can make a lot of damage if the other team sucks, but if they're pros, it's incredibly challenging.
Spy is a class that only really works in chaotic 24-player pubs with braindead teammates who don't know what the chat function is for.
this, pub servers are basically unplayable due to bots but community servers be going hard, SKIAL isnt too bad
man fuck the deadringer, also im glad spy is hard to play cuz good spys are fucking annoying to play against.
community servers anon, also no clue whats up with the keys not working good luck wit that one anon
after reading this thread Ive come to the conclusion a /leftypol/ tf2 server might not be needed but would be cool af
I just play on pugs nowadays.
Seems like doublecross was a natural choice after all, at least for a dabbling spy like me. Maybe I should try it on Steel since I actually know the map in comparison to everyone else who ends up on it. Kinda sad, since it's just a really good map
A server hosted on weekends with a map rotation we could vote on would be fun. I just doubt that we would get more than ~10 consistent players
