They crippled it way too much though. I've played TF throughout many years for one high level reason. It's a fast paced game that can get your heart rate up. TF2 is an abomination in that regard. Pretty graphics on top of shallow gameplay. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, seems gaming in general is going that direction.
After seeing the train wreck that was the ETF community, and the death of the Q3F community, along with the initial games I've had in TF2 & FF, I can only conclude that the TF we played for years will simply not work anymore. The gameplay is fundamentally flawed, and needs drastic changes (removing of nades being the big one) in order to continue going forth, and growing hopefully.
TF2 is much more of a truer sequel than QWTF -> TFC was, changes are to be expected. And even though I miss conc jumps, med infections, and strafejumping, it simply is a recipe to make a niche game with no chance of growth.
