The meet your match update.

I met my match alright, because I can't stand this horrible update.

I've been a long time player, been here since the Replay Update back in may of 2011, and this is my absolute favorite game of all time, but this update might finally be the nail in the coffin for me.

The biggest glaring issue here is the removal of valve servers. Say you want to play a match of sawmill or maybe a map that isn't so popular such as lumberyard, you would normally just bring up the browser, narrow the search to the map you want, find the valve server with a healthy amount of players and good ping, boom! You're done!

Nope, with the newest EPIC CONTENT UPDATE, these servers have since been removed, and replaced with 'casual mode'

Casual mode

Now casual mode is its own can of worms. During the launch of this update, you couldn't even CHOOSE THE MAP YOU WANTED TO PLAY ON. You picked your game mode, pressed a button, and now you're shoved in a que for an extrememly long waiting time. Some things have been fixed since then, though the experience is hardly any better. It goes something like this:

1. Choose the map and mode you wish to play

2. Enter the que and wait up to 5 minutes to get into a game

3. Join a server that is often a one sided stomp that ends faster than the time it took to join the server

4. The map ends, everyone disconnects

5. Repeat steps 1-4 until you die of old age

You might be thinking "just go play on community servers!" If by "community servers" you mean "only 2fort/dustbowl" then sure, you can play that to your hearts content. But for a game with 92 different maps spanning across 15 game modes, I think I'm right in wanting a little bit of diversity here and there.

There are other servers of course, many in fact, so why don't I play on some of them? Mainly because, most of them are garbage custom servers or AMAZING trade servers. I hope you like custom maps/modes (especially minecraft ones), because there are about 9 billion of them to choose from!

I live on the east coast of America and mainly play at night. I can hardly ever find a match with 20 players+, good ping, and stock maps that aren't dustbowl/2fort. This is unnacceptable. Where the hell are all the 50k players at?

Competitive Mode

I don't play competitive, and frankly never ever will. Personally I believe this game isn't competitive and should have never had had this mode added. This is the main point of this update, so it must be amazing right?


As far as I know, this mode has been in beta for half a year, maybe less/more. Plenty of time to polish some of its features up. But yet again, Valve somehow managed to screw it up.

No class restrictions, telephone number REQUIRED or else you have to spend money, no weapon restrictions, no real rewards.

No class restricitions is self explanatory. You can have about 6 engineers/snipers/spies on your team if you wanted. Now this isn't always a bad thing per se, but If you plan on playing competitive solo, half a team full of gibus spies might be an issue.

The telephone number restriction helps combat against trolls and griefers, but then again, what about the people that don't have a telephone number or don't want to give away their personal contact information to Valve?

Cough up that $10 buddy because that's the toll of admission if you want to join the competitive club.

Now to me, the no weapon restrictions would honestly kill the mode for me. Banning some of the more broken weapons would really level the playing field. Instead, you get full access to the mini-crits-on-demand cola and the reserve 130-damage-for-blowbacking-a-target-shooter (which by the way, valve planned on buffing for this update).

Last but not least, no real rewards. Valve should be aware that the vast majority of the playerbase isn't going to play competitive just to win and rank up that badge that no one outside of competitive mode will see. They could have added some fancy new weapon skins or exclusive cosmetics to compensate that gut wrenching grind to level 10 or even level 18. But instead, you get nothing. You upgrade your badge to a different picture and that's your lot.

In conclusion

tldr this update sucks and I advise everyone to stay away from the game until they update casual to feel more like valve servers again

This is my first long review that isn't just a meme sentence, and this game has a special place in my heart, so it deserves something that comes from it.

My advice? Find a community you can call home. Then you'll come to realize just how short 4000 hours can be.

all i care about is the competetive 6s community to grow up ... this game is amazing and hopefully valve will plays its card right.
no comp player played this game for money... we play it ( im not a comp player ) because we love the game not because of the money if one valve tf team can see this then you know what to do.

You made one of the greatest game of all time don't ♥♥♥♥ it up.

I need to say this now with my nearly 3k hours on the game. This game used to be SOOOO fun, until recent years came around. Valve doesn't care anymore (And if they do they sure don't act like it) The "Major" updates they push are always broken. I still love this game to bits and it feels bad to say all this negativity about it but they don't listen to the community, and until they begin caring again, I don't recommend this game.

Edit: Apparently this negative review is causing people to get "triggered" just because i was sharing my opinion, apparently that isn't allowed and i can't say bad things about a game. Shows that the community is Toxic too.

Edit 2: Someone got confused over me thinking the game was "♥♥♥♥" and No. I don't think TF2 is a "♥♥♥♥" game, its still very fun and i play it every now and then. So i felt that i needed to add this here just in case anymore confusion happens :)

The game totally went downhill after they forced Matchmaking into the game and removed all the pub servers. I don't mind them adding Matchmaking, but at least make it an option.

What happened. No seriously, what happened to this game. I feel it all started going downhill after the introducton of promotional and cosmetic items that didn't fit the style. Now it's a wasteland of community models with precisely zero quality control, extremely awful optimization, a billion weapon reskins, the scamm-co store, traders, and an utterly broken menu system. Valve's quickplay devastated custom map servers by not listing them, something that caused many to shut down completely and disband a lot of great communities. The End of the Line update was an inarguable disaster that even the most hardcore valve fanboy couldn't defend with broken promises and no actual content. And finally there's the trainwreck known as meet your match. The only reason I still play is because I have an old bunch of friends I can go back to. To anyone who actually reads this past the idiotic and useless "POOTIS" comments on the front page just know what this game has become, it's been a long time since 2007.

...My oh my how the mighty have fallen.

I... love Team Fortress 2, I really do. If it wasn't for TF2, I would have spent a good year-ish on Xbox playing CoD or Minecraft or some crap instead of the 2007 TF2 that comes with the Console Orange Box. If it wasn't for Team Fortress 2 I wouldn't have gotten into Steam, let alone the beauty we know as PC gaming. Gaming is my... life? As sad as it sounds, it's the only thing I really do. Been gaming since I was like 5, haven't really found another hobby that stuck I guess. Now, I'm not gonna be one of those cancer af kids who says "I wish it was 2007!!!!111!oneone!" because I was FORCED to play it for a year, trust me, you don't want 2007. 2012-ish? Yeah ya want that. What was once a great, genre-defining game is now an abandonment of Valve, now too busy caring for CSGO (which they're dropping the ball with, I give it a good 3, maybe less, years until it falls off the face of the earth) and their cash-cow sugar momma DotA 2. Also they kinda run Steam so yeah.

TF2's fall from grace comes from a lotta things. Greed, a horrid community (for f's sake just look at all the big YouTubers now, even THEY have drama) and rather... stale, gameplay. No new weapons, just more skins. No more maps, well, more maps, but years old community maps, just more unusual effects, cosmetics, a horrible economy, and a horrible way to ruin a game. As a casual shooter, you don't add matchmaking or competitive or appeal to the 2% of people who play UGC or whatever, you appeal to the majority.

Valve isn't doing that.

It disgusts me to play a competitive game and hear someone say "lit 96" like it's CSGO.
It disgusts me to play a casual (in other words, not quick-play, we coulda just had casual AND quickplay, but alrite Valve) game and have everyone worry about "OMG WIN SO I CAN LEVEL UP EVEN THOUGH I'M NOT GETTING ANYTHING FROM I JUST WANNA LOOK COOL MAN!"

After 2,000 hours on PC, and probably a thousand+ more on console, I'm laying my TF2 career to rest. I used to bloody love this game, now I'm just gonna play Overwatch.

Because, yaknow, Blizzard can maintain a f'ing game.


WoW is garbo now but...

Shut up let me have this.

Meet your match was a joke.
Comp♥♥♥♥ sould have just stayed playing UGC and ESEA rather than taking a ♥♥♥♥ on the main game.
Casual mode is a disaster, nobody knows how to play the game or even to have fun.
All my favorite servers and community servers are either dead, or are struggling to stay online because nobody plays community servers anymore and not too many of those that do are willing to help keep them online.
GG Valve. The only reason I still play this is the small hope that my favorite servers eventually getting more than two people on at a time... And even that doesn't look promising anymore.

I'm going to be completely honest, Team Fortress 2 is one of the best free games I have ever played, but Valve just isn't paying enough attention to this game, they just continue to update it because it's a money maker.

I recommend Team Fortress 2 for the game, not for the developers.

Your love of this game will depend on your dedication.

Valve (or the TF2 team) do not care for this game. The last two major updates have broken parts of the game, only for it to be fixed 3 days later. It's a true case of 1 step forward, 2 steps back.

I can only hope that valve pick up their act soon, lest this game be buried.
