[FPS] Team Fortress 2
« on: July 06, 2011, 10:14:27 »
Finally, I can make a thread about this game.

DL: http://store.steampowered.com/app/440/

Website: http://www.teamfortress.com/

Spoiler: screenshots (click to show/hide)

TF2 is the world's #1 war-themed hat simulator. Dress up one of the nine classes in stylish headgear while playing capture-the-flag, king of the hill, control point, payload, and arena themed minigames in between!

I'm kidding of course. Hats only make up 50% of actual gameplay.

Steam ID is shawnachu if you want to add me.

Other forums. Everyone here is nice people but there just isn't anywhere to interact with the community beyond forum games

what is that supposed to mean? That because it's multiplayer game it has to be overrated or that it is a bad game because it is multiplayer?

Anyway, getting tf2 for free is kinda sweet, to bad for me I already bought the game (twice even).
In my experience it's a decent multiplayer game. It can be fun and most players are noobs so it's easy too.
But all this focus on hats and whatnot is sorta ruining it for me. I don't like these games where you have to unlock the better weapons so the players who played more get the upper hand. And it's kinda uneven as it is already with the class-based gameplay. I prefer team fortress classic.

Salmoneus is back  C)

I have the same complaint as salmoneus, the items that they have been consistently adding detract from the game.

I used to play it heaps, but then I just stopped, and I barely ever play it any more...

I play it a lot, but my backpack is about 90% crates and 10% useful things. D:

I find myself playing this a bit, but in all dismay, I find myself not getting too many pieces of equipment.  (Low drop rates pain me.)
Also to note, is that I'm not exactly a good player...  The one real irksome detail is that I find myself with a ratio of being dominated 10 times before I dominate one player.  I'm WAY outta practice, and poorly equipped.

I had the problem that it didn't work. I got the message: CD key invalid for internet servers.

After trying lots of things, google told me that I had to restart steam once to fix the issue. I have played the game once since. X) Its a nice game. I used to play Quake 3 Fortress a lot back in the days.

When you're still ill-equipped, stay away from snipers. You'll get killed several hundred times before killing one without better items.

Made some screenshots for this thread by carefully positioning the spectator camera thingy (except the last one, which is a screenshot of me playing). Here they are (hover over to see what they are).

Good work with the screens, but did you resize them on paint or something? Because they look like crap :S

These two statements would appear to be contradictory!
