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

This statement makes absolutely no sense.

What, you don't know what handicapped (in a video game) means? It means one side is given an unfair advantage in order to keep the game fair, so it always remains balanced. It's a really lame mechanic.

Haven't you played a Racing game before, and it asks you to set the difficulty of the CPU racers to either Handicapped or not? If you set handicapped, then the enemy racers are given an unfair advantage (speed boost) to catch up to you, no matter how fast/good/skilled you are. Essentially taking away your skill, for the sake of balancing the game out for both teams. Really, a lame feeling, indeed.

That's what TF2 is, with all it's mechanics and settings.

That's why Random Crits exists. That's why the Spy class exists(for newb players that couldn't cut it, using a normal class). That's why Ubers exists. That's why it takes 3 rockets for a soldier to kill a spy, instead of 1 rocket. That's why sticky guns exists for Demoman. etc. etc. The list goes on and on; I could list 100+ examples. But, meh.
