Opinions on the current state of Team Fortress 2?Watch
Seriously when is valve ever going to implement a proper anti cheat.
In every game I will find non-serious players and this ranges to the worst of the worst. You'll have people who want to "be friendly" and if you kill them (they are likely to be a heavy) that person and their friends will try and vote kick you off the server. There are also times when you have a teammate on your team who "tries to be friendly" with the other team and does nothing but talk **** in the chat and piss off your team. Then there are other times when all teams are taunting and no one is playing the ****ing game. Interrupt them in any way by trying to play the game and you'll get kicked. I can understand this stuff being on Trade servers like those Minecraft ones but why the **** are these ***** on casual?
Then you have the bots and glitchers and now is where it just gets worse. Bots are always going to be on a server as sniper, headshotting for 5 mins until they get Vacc'd or kicked (because valve doesn't give a **** about TF2). You may also get a heavy bot who has infinite crits on their minigun and kills everyone and gets vacc'd in 5 mins. Then there are glitchers who do the "civillian glitch" which still hasn't been patched and do the same bs as the "friendlies".
I just don't find the game fun anymore because of this and its just a pain in the ass to deal with all of this bull****. This year Tyler Mckvicker (who is a massive manchild) and his circlejerk friends played a role in leaking a source code for the game. TF2 is dying because of its **** community and the fact that valve doesn't care about it anymore and its sad. I honestly hate Tyler and the people that are killing the game
Don't get me started on those friendlies lmao. What is the point in playing a PvP game only to be friendly? It's really stupid imo. As for casual matchmaking etc, yeah, I agree. The Meet Your Match update is often attributed as the reason why TF2 kinda fell from grace. Casual is full of the same people who circlejerk about crits, W+M1 Pyros etc etc. It's very tiring. The casual matchmaking system also caused a lot of community servers to lose players, with only a few servers having active playerbases. I don't think TF2 will truly die though. It's got a very loyal fanbase that have stood by it for many years.
A benefit to the community servers I was involved with years ago was we could ban all the hackers quite efficiently (this was pre matchmaking though)
although, while writing this I looked up patch/update history, and this came up yesterday:
-Work is ongoing to mitigate the use of new and free accounts for abusive purposes
