    It's okay. I really don't know why it's so popular. The cartoony feel kinda bugs me and it's a little complicated (though I'm sure it's just because I just started playing it). I guess I'm missing something?

    I always thought it was a bit overhyped, but I reckon it's
    pretty good.

    just wait till you start hat collecting [​IMG]

    it depends on what server you play on
    I usually play payload on the official tf2 servers

    I felt the same way. It's one of those games you have to really warm up to. Once you are a Heavy blasting away at enemies trying to take your point THEN you'll learn why it's so popular.

    I forgot
    Ehh. That was my first impression when I played it. Haven't played it since, I've heard people rave about all the cool hats (hurr durr) and shit but none of that really interests me.

    As far as I'm concerned, it's the single best online multiplayer experience of the last decade.

    I find BC2 a better experience, but i'm more into realistic shooters [​IMG]
    Whatever floats your boat (except pop) is acceptable xD

    It's kinda my favorite online FPS (any any online game for that matter)
    Have about almost 700 hours on it. Me and my friends play it all the time.
    And the mods are so fun (Vs. Saxton Hale

    I've had some fun in TF2, such as having the ultimate medic+pyro team where you just tear through an enemy defines line and blow everything up. In one round we chained 5 such ubercharges and racked up a LOT of points. The same could be said with well timed ubercharges on a heavy, but oncenyou see everyone doing it then it's not special anymore.

    In the end however, the fun doesn't really go up from there, so I ended up quitting thinking meh, good for a while but not as good as L4D. And this was before they added trading and materials and all that random minecraft stuff.

    Seriously, go on a team with at least one medic, and be a heavy (they need a medic as their life partner really badly). Once you're blasting away with the Tomislav you created yourself, it's great.

    OR be a soldier, get one of the OP lasers, and blast away away away.

    Fun fun fun fun looking forward to the uuuupdate.

    I loved TF2, but after the gbatemp server went down I stoped playing it.
    The reason is because of these stupid local servers have a terrible community fulled with 10 year olds nagging about spies.
    And my ping is about 300ms.

    Away from you.
    The problem is you're from Ukraine (I think).

    Here in Australia there are great servers (a great example is the GamersUnited servers) that are lag-free and have great players.

    you should try some of the mods.
    Vs. Saxton Hale is so fun.
    Especially since it emphasizes Teamwork.
