Team Fortress 2 Community Patch

The Team Fortress 2 Website announces the release of the Robotic Boogaloo Update for Team Fortress 2, a completely community-created update adding 57 new items to the teamplay first-person shooter. Here's word:

This update is 100% created by the TF2 community. And when we say everything, we mean everything—the in-game content, the update hub website, the animated short, the comic, even the splash images in the Steam store. Even better, everything you created avoided the classic trap of using other companies’ intellectual property. (Those of you working on a Darth Vader Pyro mask, we've got some bad news for you.) Plus, in a first for the Team Fortress economy, all the creators of the Robotic Boogaloo Update have decided to share the revenue earned from the sale of RoboCrate Keys. That means that everyone involved will be profiting from this update, not just the people making hats.

This doesn't mark the end of Valve-produced TF2 updates, by the way. As far as we’re concerned, there's plenty of room for both to happily co-exist. We're in uncharted territory here, and it's exciting to be exploring it with you. Amazing work, everyone!

TF2 still sucks, though. It's too balanced, that it's actually handicapped.

Also filled with the current generation of kiddy teens, and servers with emo all-talk enabled, it's just garbage.

Don't waste your time with this one.

Fun, fast-paced, cartoony games... played by KIDS? Yea, don't bother with this trash. Go play one of those other cartoony games that only adults frequent.

Idiot...

I assume you have never played on publics. The play experience is abysmal and what he said is 100% truth. You can mute voice chat by default because every open server is gonna have some kids with the mental capacity of a sea sludge screaming into their mic. Unless you play on clan servers where there are admins, only then it's usually clan people playing, so the play experience is even worse than on public.

I had so many bad experiences in TF2 public play that I stopped playing it entirely. I gave all my crappy items and stupid hats away for free to some random dude. That felt like the best thing I had done in gaming ever. I am free from this bullshit. Hats and TF2 FTL.

And thanks to it being F2P the amount of cheaters (it felt) had multiplied by factor of 50.

I am glad I uninstalled TF2.
