Good, but disapponting at some point. It's barely similar to TF2, it's based basically only on ctf mod, four clasess are useless (Pyro, Spy, in some degree, Heavy, however, on non-bhop servers, and Scout, who is totally outclassed by Medic) in comparison to the left five, Medic is not for healing, he's the flag runner and burst damager, a lot more movements, than tactics, are involved, when it comes to 1v1 fights, bunny-hop, grenade-spam and a lot of explosion/jumping/shot timing, hundreds of explosive jump tactics and so on.
Read some aabicus reviews on SPUF, play on some empty servers to feel the movements, try to ask veterans to help you, play on non-bhop servers at the beginning (for example, Drippy's 2Fort, one of the best ones), train on jumping maps (pretty much the sane things, as in TF2) and try to play USABLE and NEEDED classes al the time.
And you need not to play TF2 for a while to get a little bit decent in TFC - the classes and overall metagame are so significantly different, that they could easily kinda... cancel each other. But after some pure practicing you can enjoy game, like I do, even though it's based on skill siginificantly more, than TF2.

Like eugensiman said, they are nothing a like for a start. Unless every player on the server is new, TFC is very fasted paced.

Drippy's 2Fort is abomination to TFC. Anyone that is against bhop is just a sore loser because they're too lazy or just plain rubbish at fast paced games. It doesn't work without bhop. It breaks the game when disabled. Defence becomes way too easy. If you're one of those people then you won't like TFC.

FPS since the xbox360/PS3 era have been slowed and dumbed down massively. Because of the bigger market in consoles, which of course use control pads. As a result most players today want to be good within 15mins, which isn't going to happen in TFC.

Yes, Pyro is useless, Spy is fine but once you're familiar with the game it's usually pretty obvious who is the spy. Heavy is probably the most "useful" class there is for defence.

Thanks people

To answer your question...Yes, it is the best team based FPS multplayer game I have ever played.

And another advice. About here's community. Don't try to blame thier game or compare it with TF2. They're kinda sacrificing it. Why? Because, at the beginning, the original game was so broken, maps and classes weaponry were so bhop-unfriendly, and ongoing updates were ignoring bhop existence in balance so long, that TFC players literally created their own new, pretty balanced, by the way, metagame. That's why they're defending it so much - this is their own child, their own exploration expirience. Drippy's is not AN ABOMINATIONTO THE HOLYNESS, of course, it's good for learning basics of each class in less nervous atmosphere, it's kinda... the lost public server out there, but that's not the TFC, not that famous and great game, that started the whole procces of making new TF-game, balanced on all the level of gameplay, either by developers. either by players.

While Pyro may be useless with the flamethrower, his grenades and incendiary cannon kinda make it up for him, but not as much. Some servers use mods to buff him up.

Nothing quite like a 16v16 match on Dustbowl...trying to break through the bottleneck as Demomen spam the MIRV grenades and spies throw down hallucination gas. I also miss Civilians match and 4 teams custom maps.

Yes it's a grenade fest, but a fun grenade fest. Only thing is: Since most servers have no players, a lot of them use bots. Fighting bots is boring since they just "know" where you are.

I have this game in my inventory and I'm wondering if it's worth to add to my libary or should I trade it away. Is this game dead or are there servers with players playing?

I hope English isn't your first language, kid.

Clearly you were banned (if that's even true) for an attitute problem.

A fair amount of players on public servers are noobs, many have played for years and are still no better than when they first played.

I'm English (UK).

Your immaturity is off the charts.

You are not banned from Royston Vasey. So unless you mistakenly got the server wrong you're spreading lies:

I'm not 100% sure but when you get banned your stats are removed. He is probably lying though, some admins take offense to certain names and give temporary bans out quickly. Only reason I can think you would get a swift ban at royston vasey, anything else takes them much longer to react too.
