If this makes you feel better, then consider TF2 something totally different, non-related to your beloved QWTF (which BTW is played by a few fellas in a regular basis out there even today and stills free of Valve capitalist claws). Or, you can still grieve and "probably sound fairly doom and gloom".
I do consider TF2 to be basically unrelated to the old school QWTF, and even TFC, and yes some of my old fellow fossils still play QWTF, but it's not the same, obviously. Whining nostalgia aside, TF2 even started out fairly good, and has gradually degraded into the mess we have today.
I'd be angry about it, but I can't have much real hate towards the Valve people when Gabe Newell appears to be eating himself to death. It'd be easier if he was constantly in the news, snorting crystal meth off prostitutes' asses every day or something, laughing uproariously as he rolled around in the millions of dollars he has earned since his freeware mod days.
Oh well, time to play some RTSes and RPGs.
