This is the cycle of every Team Fortress 2 player ever:

> Download the game.
> Enter your first match.
> Realize you don't know what you're doing.
> Die repeatedly.
> Just before you rage, you find the Ghastly Gibus hat.
> Since all the pro players have cool-looking hats, you are inspired.
> Die repeatedly in different game modes.
> Discover that you are getting a lot of kills as Pyro.
> Be mentally violated by other players calling you a "f2p gibus pyro".
> Get slightly better at the game.
> Die repeatedly.
> Leave the game.

*6 months later.*

> Start to discover TF2 videos on YouTube.
> Realize that there are more classes than just Pyro and Sniper.
> End up wanting to be a pro non-Pyro like all the cool YouTubers.
> Return to Team Fortress 2.
> Die repeatedly.
> Claim that you 'main' Pyro.
> Walk at people and light them on fire mindlessly for a few weeks. Or months.
> Start getting a good K/D ratio on a different class. (If it's Soldier, you can go die.)
> Succumb to peer-pressure and buy hats.
> Discover the Steam community market and buy more hats for less.
> Feel your skill strangely growing as you get more hats.
> More kills. Less deaths.
> You begin to discover the passive players of TF2. (Sandvich hoovies, spycrabs, box shpees, etc.)
> Develop a kindness and sense of friendship towards your fellow players.
> Start to top-score more often.
> You begin to care about the state of the game.
> Realize that Pyros are overpowered and pointless.
> Start to hate Pyros.
> Start to hate everyone.
> Start to hate the TF2 community.
> You hate everything and everyone, to the point where you start to kill passive players again.
> Ask yourself, "If I hate this game, why do I have ten unusuals and fifteen Australiums? What am I doing?"
> Look at your playtime and begin to hate yourself.
> You dislike yourself more than the game now.
> Contemplate suicide.
> Contemplate religion.
> Question the game.
> Binge-watch STAR_'s 2012-2013 TF2 videos to remind you of a simpler time.
> Sit down and think.
> Realize what you have become.
> Go into a mid-TF2 crisis.
> Except it's not mid-TF2 anymore. You have 1000 hours in-game.
> What is going on?
> WHAT IS TEAM FORTRESS 2?
> WHY DOES THE LIGHT LIE TO ME?
> Quit TF2 forever.
> Come back to it in a week and die to a gibus sniper who taunts after kill.
> Kill yourself.

Or maybe that was just my experience.
Oh well.

10/10

I'm the scout who missed you six times at point blank range. I'm the pyro who couldn't reflect in a mirror. I'm the Soldier who just cannot let W go on a rocket jump. I'm the demoman who does zero damage with the stickies, misses every grenade and then random crits you with a bottle, only to step on my last grenade. I'm the heavy who is dead before the spin up finishes. I'm the engineer who always sentry jumps into the path of the sniper's bullet. I'm the medic you think is going to save the push who ♥♥♥♥s up the uber timing. I'm the sniper who missed that bodyshot on your afk team mate. I'm the spy who missed you six times at point blank range from behind.

I'm the reason the others abandon when I join a MM beta team. I'm kills 30-2500 on your aussie rocket launcher. I'm the pubstompee.

It's been six and a half years for me and I love TF2.

Indulge in the never ending struggle between two groups of players forming two sides in a competitive game of mercenaries battling in honour of two fine gentleman who kin each other. You may engage in a sustained fight between the before mentioned armed forces, as one of nine remarkable gentleman. I shall list them now:

The soldier sent out ahead of the main force and that departs in a specified direction at great speed.

The gentleman that wishes to serve in the military army.

The pyrotechnical specialist person.

The professional of demolitions.

The adult human male that utilizes weaponry of great weight.

The person who designs, builds and maintains engines, machines and structures.

The trained military person responsible for providing medical care to his associates.

The long range combatant whose sole purpose is to take out foes from a far.

And the entrepreneur of sensory shapeshifting with purpose of infiltrationary actions.

If you feel the urge of engaging in activity of enjoyment and recreation other then the aforementioned
battle between these two remarkable armed forces, allow oneself to enjoy the pleasure of fighting against a large group of robots created by the gentleman related to the two previously mentioned brothers by way of sharing the same father and mother, in the game-technique known as "Gentleman versus Machinery".

If these game-techniques do not fulfill your wishes you may engage in the activity designated "Hattoning" where one uses silly headwear to show superiority towards his other colleagues. If you desire to be apart of the community envolving this activity you may have to virtualize your actual medium of exchange in the form of coins and banknotes into virtual articles and units.


I assign this computerised game 5 stars.

The painful cycle of hats:

1. Put money into steam
2. Promise to not spend money on anything worthless
3. See an awesome hat
4. Realize you NEED that hat
5. Buy keys, using all your money in Steam
6. Week later, trade for it
7. Use all your keys for other stuff matching the hat or something that you want
8. Realize you ran out of keys
9. Cry
10. Go back to step 1

10/10
