I made a review on TF2 a while ago while all of the Meet your Match drama and hate was still going. I deleted that review and made this one because ♥♥♥♥ it, valve can add casual and remove quickplay, they can kill off a soldier secondary that wasn't even good to begin with but TF2 is still a game I love. Even with all these flaws, I'm still putting a thumbs up for this game. At the end of the day, I love TF2. Yes I have played overwatch but I will side with TF2 in all of these TF2 vs overwatch arguments because it's hard to compare overwatch to TF2. Did overwatch create payload? No TF2 did. Does overwatch have an active community making them content which can be published with a push of a button? No but TF2 does. Has overwatch been thriving for over 9 years? No, it's only been around for few months. As one of my favourite games, it's going to take a lot more than Meet your Match or overwatch to kill off TF2. But before you thumb down this review because I dissed overwatch. Just remember, TF2 has hats.

Some of the idiots in the review section are about as ignorant as there is, claiming that the Meet Your Match update "killed TF2" and that "Valve don't care about the community".

Honestly, after all the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t Valve have been going through, I don't blame them if they couldn't give a ♥♥♥♥ about the community, most of us are a bunch of entitled jerks who overhype at pretty much everything. Ironically, it's the community right now thats making TF2 lesser of what it used to be.

Sure, I'll be honest, I don't prefer the new system. I think it's clunky and tedious, but unless I'm playing with friends, I go on community servers, so it doesn't really affect me. The reason I'm making this review is to address some of the nonsense being thrown at Valve.

Right now you have 3 options. Casual servers which are basically the non-competitive version of competitive, Competitive servers, and Community servers.

People complain that Casual servers are filled with idiots that don't know how to play. So basically they're implying that before this update, the servers weren't filled with idiots.
Team Fortress 2 is still a huge game thats introducing dozens of players all the time, of course you're bound to get people new to the game, but that somehow makes them an idiot?
I do agree however that it can take a while to find a server, whereas the previous system was much quicker.

Competitive gets complains of hackers and cheaters being in every match, and that it's best to play with friends because people you don't know are ♥♥♥♥. First off, I've never seen a single hacker or cheater, and I've played quite a bit of Competitive. I've won many games with people I don't know, and honestly don't see why I'd lose if the people I was with, were actually good. It isn't perfect, but hell it's nowhere near as bad as people say it is.

And Finally Community servers. The servers that people claim are "toxic". Funny thing is, because of this update, Casual and Comp servers are much more toxic than community servers, due to people complaining about the most pathetic of things, blaming their failure on other people and claiming they suck at the game. Most of my playtime is spent on community servers, and I've made some pretty good friends on there. I agree, they're not perfect. Some are absolutely horrible, filled with advertisements, awful admins and some are just the centre of scam, but I'd much rather go on these right now, than even touch Casual or Competitive.

So for people wondering, the Meet Your Match update has NOT killed TF2. Valve isn't killing TF2, Overwatch isn't killing TF2, cheaters and hackers aren't killing TF2, It Is YOU, the community, that is killing it.

This is what happens when people overhype on something that really isn't worth overhyping. It's made people completely bitter and pretty much mock everything Valve does, when Valve are trying to save the game. The game is still unbalanced, you still get jerks on either team calling you a noob, you still get everything you got before but you're just going to have to put up with how you play.

I still play the game today, by myself and with friends, and still get plenty of fun out of it, but this update is one the prime examples of what overhyping can result in. I feel sorry for the new players who have to put with us jerks.

One of the many reasons I love this game:
DEMOMAN(injured):MEDIC!
MEDIC:NO!(and runs in the spawn and starts taunting conga);
SCOUT(on fire):FIRE FIRE FIRE!
MEDIC(still dancing conga):NO!
ENEMY HEAVY:RUN HOME TO MAMA!
SCOUT:AAA THIS NO GOOD HERE UMMMM!
SCOUT(dies)
MEDIC(still dancin conga):OPSS THAT WASN'T MEDICINE!
DEMOMAN(after killing the enemy heavy was still injured and called for the medic again):MEDIC!
MEDIC(still in spawn now dancing roodeo):NO!
DEMOMAN(I wanted to use the voice line JEERS! but I accidently press THANKS and demoman sees):I DIDN't NEED YOUR HELP YOU KNOW
MEDIC(DEMOMAN is killed by ENEMY SPY and MEDIC goes):I AM ZHE WINNER!
10/10-I laugh every time when I remember that moment.

This is a well made, stylised, team based first person shooter. Teamwork is needed to win at higher levels of play. Lone wolfing is fine on lower skill levels such as on most public servers. There are 9 classes (each with his or her own distinct personality) to choose from. The banter between the different classes is entertaining to listen to. Each class has unique weapons and abilities that allow him to fulfil a unique roll as part of a larger team. This provides for a challenging and rewarding experience when faced against opponents of similar or higher skill levels. The game has a somewhat active development team that continues to release updates to the game that add new content such as weapons, skins or game modes.

At the time of this review, there are two official modes of play: player versus player(which consist of Match Making, Casual and Community Servers) and 'Mann Versus Machine'.

Player versus player is a mode where one team of players battles against another team of players. Within this mode, there are different types of maps. Each type of map has it's own objective or objectives for each team to achieve.

'Mann Versus Machine' is a mode where a team of up to 6 players battles against waves of bots. Players collect money from destroyed bots. The money is divided equally among players in the team and can be used to purchase upgrades and abilities for the next wave of bots. The pay to play sub-mode, "Mann Up", gives rewards upon completing a "tour".

In addition to the official modes of play, there are several player made mods that introduce other modes of play such as 'Versus Saxton Hale', where a team of players battles against a player playing as a character named Saxton Hale; 'Dodge Ball', where two teams of players playing as Pyros must airblast rockets and other projectiles back and forth in order to stay alive; 'Zombie Mod', where a team of players must make it to the end of the map without dying to zombies that are played by other players; to name just a few of the many player made mods available.

In addition to game play, players will randomly receive free items from the game. Some of the free items given out are weapons, hats and crates. Hats can be worn by a class to change the appearance of that class. Crates can be opened with a key. Keys can be purchased from the Mann Co Store or from the Steam Community Market or traded for from another player. Most crates will list which items can be found within them. However I DO NOT recommend opening crates!!!

The game has several communities for a player to choose from if a community is what you are looking for. The game is easy to pick up and play, either alone or with friends, yet has a depth of play that will keep you from becoming bored too quickly. The dynamics between the different classes, weapons, play styles, skill levels, modes and maps provides content for many hours of play. I have been playing 2014 and I still return to the game on a regular basis.

Overall TF2 is a classic but will most likely die out in the next few years unless the development team gets their act together.
