    Sometimes it feels good to go back to TF2. Visit a community server and have a laugh with every single person. They can be RED, BLU or the Spectator Micspammer, but hell, this is one of the very, very few games in which you can have a conversation about anything.
    I feel like it's funny how my mindset has changed over the years. I went from killing friendlies because I didn't know what they were, to being friendly because I thought it was funny, to killing friendlies because I wanted to take the game seriously, to acting friendly whenever the chance arises because I only care about playing competitively when in organized play.

    I dont prioritize friendlies, but i wont hesitate to pull the trigger if they get in the way

    Edited:

    usually I just leave them be, maybe give them an acknowledging voiceline and go continue playing

    tf2center requires me to undo my adblock (never happening)
    faceit doesn't accept gmail accounts for whatever reason

    what else is there out there for kind of casual comp-style play that doesn't require me to make a team and commit a fuckton of time

    I usually just leave friendlies alone. 1 potential enemy less to worry about. And they sometimes throw you a sandvich...

    I don't care about friendlies on community/idle/trade/fun servers at all, but in normal matches I don't care for them at all. At first I never really minded it, but when they started to become more common place as well as also started to get nasty about being killed. They are technically griefing the server, as they're purposely putting their team down a person, and throwing sandviches to the enemy is helping their team win. Not as bad as say, Delfy of course, but still bad as a whole.

    Then, even if you ignore them for the most part or kill ( wither it be accidental or not ) them, they often started getting into a little hissy fit about interfering with their way of play, which is hypocritical since telling people what they can or cannot do is interfering with our way of playing lol.

    If people are still waiting more then 30 seconds to get into a server ( can't say myself, I never have issues getting in fast ), there's probably a good chance they don't want to have to deal with friendlies after waiting to play in the first place. More then likely they want to be able to enjoy the match that they finally got into.

    Worst came to worst in quickplay is when there were a bunch and they actively tried to kick players who ended up killing them. This is when I started to draw the line on it. At this point if your that annoyed that others kill you on a normal server you need to start taking your friendly nonsense to community servers. Also, don't give me the nonsense that they don't exist...







    They do, stop being lazy... Took me all but two seconds to find Lazy Purples Silly Servers and they have rules against excessive killing:



    I also get a kick when they act like being friendly is supported by Valve and fine in regular games. I ask them to provide me a video where Valve's official bots allowing you to live, only to see them squirm for excuses why that's not a valid argument lol.

    If they're on your team, switch to spy and disguise as them and pretend to be friendly. Then attack when the enemy's guard is down.

    The enemy team will start killing them every time.

    My issue with B4nny is that he strongly believes that if you don't believe in a competitive TF2 then you don't believe in TF2. At this stage I find it very hard to believe TF2 can remain in any competitive place given the balances and matchmaking we've been given during its lifespan.
    Imo the biggest reason TF2 can never be an Esport is because the tf2 he plays, and the tf2 everyone plays might as well be different games entirely

    Comp tf2 doesn't even resemble tf2.

    Im getting back into playing 2fort and it's pretty fun. Sure matches go on for pretty long, but if anything it gets by pretty good if you got a good medic and engineer moving with you.

    I don't disagree with you that breaking the flow of gameplay by being friendly is really idiotic and people that do it deserve no sympathy if they get killed doing it, but I don't think your point is really a valid argument.

    If "bots don't recognize friendlies, so they aren't supported by Valve" is a valid argument, then "bots don't rocket jump, so doing it isn't supported by Valve." You can say "but Valve has implemented multiple items to encourage rocket jumping" to which can be countered with "but Valve implemented multiple partner taunts and the ability to perform cross-team partner taunts."

    With that being said, I mostly play on servers I moderate. One's a 24/7 Doublecross server, and a lot of regulars tend to avoid fighting other regulars if they're friends. It becomes silly when you're playing Sniper and an enemy Scout comes in and wipes out the other 3 Snipers and leaves you alone because you both are silently agreeing not to target each other.

    Considering how old a game like TF2 is, no three words grant me such an overpowering feeling of Nostalgia then "from another era." Just feels iconic to me.

    I stick to stock scatterguns mostly, preferibly my night terror scattergun. Hell, I don't even use my Aussie Scattergun any more. But if they had made the super shotty from Doom as a promo to TF2, which it more or less would probably have turned up as a Force-of-Nature reskin, I'd probably exclusively use that as my go to scattergun just because of it being the Super Shotty from Doom.

    I don't even care for the Force-of-Nature honestly. I don't like how the knock back effects the scout mostly, as it tends to stop your momentum in fire fights, making it a bit easier to kill you if your not careful.

    I've always wished there was a double barrel shotgun with no gimmicks
    I just want to bam bam


    Also I played this game for over ten minutes for the first time in something like a year
    How is it possible that server quality is worse every time I come back to see how things are
    It's going into the negatives
    (doesn't help that my favourite server finally died to a destroyed box last week)

    edit: in related news can anyone recommend any good community servers, on the off chance i keep playing?

    If you want to stand around spamming voice lines, wasting oxygen and a server slot, then it sounds to me like you'd have more fun playing with dolls, pulling the string on the back and listening to the sound it plays over and over again instead of playing a first person shooter.

       I probably should just leave this alone   

    First off I was making a joke.

    Secondly I never mention that I play as a friendly (I pretty much only do on trade severs), I just think its a dick move to kill them, just let people enjoy the game how they want to enjoy it, its one thing if its in competitive, but in CASUAL just let them be (I mean if their on the other team their just helping you win, also hoovies=sandwiches)
    All in all I feel like being a friendly is one of the things that make tf2, tf2. Like it or not

    stop posting you fucking sperg
    While not a incorrect statement, I do enjoy the irony of it

    What if my way to enjoy the game is by actually killing my enemys and playing the game like it was meant to be played?

    Why the hell would I want the enemy team to help me win? That's making the game less fun for me, there's less of a challenge, and it's sure as fuck making the game less fun for the enemy team.

    Man, going back to tf2 after 4/5 years of not being able to because of a broken computer feels great, it's as fun as always tho there aren't as many servers as before, which is a bit sad but I get it since it's almost 10 years old.
    I remember going around silly custom maps like achievement_turbo too and revisiting them is so nostalgic.

    On that topic, I remember a custom map where you went around on a flying ship capturing points and the other team had to stop you, i remember it being around the engineer update. does anyone have any idea which one could it be? I really need to revisit it

    Even though it would never happen given the sheer amount of cosmetics already in-game, I'd love if they added alternative TFC player models for all classes, though that would probably cause problems with the proportions
