Being a F2P doesn't make you a bad player.
Seriously people? You think buying useless virtual hats boosts how good you are? Free 2 Play players are still able to find items, just not hats. Hats. They're not noobs, they're players like the rest of you. In fact, I don't think anyone that's P2P has given an honest reason why F2P's are supposed to be "garbage" or "noobs." Just stop bashing them. Hats don't make you better at a game, they make you look like an idiot for wasting your money on them.

Playing the game, then no.
Trading in the game, then yes.

All I'm gonna say give a Quake veteran an F2P account on TF2 and 15 minutes later he'll be ♥♥♥♥♥♥ shit in his noob gear.

The term "F2P" in the context of an insult is an example of metanymy.
It isn't used in a literal sense; and really you'd have to be a F2P scrub to think you're being insulted because of your lack of funding rather than the numerous elementary mistakes you're making.

If the gibus fits...

I dunno. Fatal1ty streamed playing tf2 once and tbh the only impressive thing he did in tf2 was his aim with the SMG, he could track like crazy but otherwise could not play the game that well, even with something you'd expect he'd be good at like sniping.

usually F2Ps come with the stigma that they're new

people assume hats=skill because most premium players have more experience (unless they're just scrubby kids that stole mommy's credit card and bought weps expecting them to be OP)

I agree, just because you're F2P does not HAVE to mean you automatically suck. Being Premium does not automatically make you a pro too, i'm premium, and i have to admit, i myself is really only decent at the game. However, i have incenitive to improve, escpecially in Mann Vs Machine.

Since 2011, you know how many players are there from that time are still either playing or still F2P? Even after a year, someone would atleast consider paying for the game itself. It's 5 bucks, you people are either really strict with the "Oh I dun' wanna spend moneyz on pixulz" which makes you a *insert-stereotype-here* for being that restraining on yourself for not paying 5 dollars-- or you can't convince your parents to pay for an online game.

By that, a majority of F2P's ARE unexperienced compared to players who have played for more than a year, and most likely more than a thousand hours. I can say that people have a very easy time with Soldier, doesn't mean they all do. Some like to challenge themselves with a Direct Hit and still do incredibly well, while a majority stick to aiming the floor and using conch+Badbox.

TL;DR: F2Ps being newbie is the generalization of them. It doesn't apply to ALL of them.

Tell me again how people that have barely experienced the game are better than those who've had experience but with a fancier hat.

It's not even really $5. It's 10 cents with the rest you can spend on anything else on steam. The only two excuses then are not enjoying the game enough to get that 10 cents (which generally leads to not being that great at it), or never bothering/being able to put money on steam (which is fair enough but for the majority doesn't apply).

people with hats = usually people with experience and 20+ hours. so he knows what hes doing
f2p = you dont know, he could have 3 hours or 100. so you dont know if ubering him over a soldier with a teamcaptain/whatever is worth it

I just hate how they got the game free while we didn't. We should get a refund but...
