The younger members of the TF2 community
We're all aware that TF2 has attracted an age group somewhat below what many of us think appropriate. Many of us have met these players and, yes, many of us do not like them. But why? Why don't we like them? Many of them are pretty darned good, so why do they not get any respect?

Here's the thing, younger players. I don't think it's your age that ticks many of us off. It's your maturity levels on the servers.

I'm sure many of you are good at this game, but that's not the point. Any player, regardless of age, that swears nonstop into the mic is not appreciated by anyone. The words you're using may be 'adult', but it comes across as painfully juvenile. So we're stuck at a choke point and that can always be frustrating, but whining about it doesn't help anyone.

Younger players don't get a lot of respect, and that can be tough if you're in that age group, but the way to get out of it is to not act like the stereotype. Prove to us you can use the mic in a way beneficial to the team, prove to us you can be mature, and the respect will follow.

It is age. I have nothing against them but playing this gme at a young age increases the chance of the kid going on a shooting rampage when older,

I'm not a fan of kids playing games not meant for their age either.
Sure there are more mature children out there, but still... I think age restrictions happen for a reason.

You lose your respect in the moment they scream into the mic or go 4th Sniper in your team.

they rarely know what thier doing, having 1 little kid on your team in a serious cp or mvm match is a serious detrenent
also thier voices ♥♥♥♥ my ears
if your young but good at the game, pls stay off the mic and pretend your older

They don't have a "grown up" head and most of them keep talking ♥♥♥♥ on the mic rather than helping. THERE ARE good kids out there playing this game, but, i don't know, i don't like a 10 year old kid trying to teach how to play the game or just can't stop talking because he thinks the game is too serios(not playing competitive).

I'm fine with younger players and young gamers in general, AS LONG AS THEY DON'T GO RAMBLING AND RAGING INTO THE MIC! There's only so much squeakyness people can take.

Basically what's been stated above, I dont mind little kids in my game, as long as they act mature and know what they're doing, rather than just swearing and raging into the mic nonstop.

I like the kids don't get me wrong it's just when they spam their voices and also some of them say some stupid stuff like can you here me over and over and over.The first time i reply but then they do it again and again and it gets extremly annoying.

Dude, look at all of the kids who played the original Doom when it first came out. They are now adults. Do you see them shooting people in real life? No, you DON'T.

I like playing with kids.

They usually suck, and get angry when you use "noob tactics" like air blasting and sticky jumping.

i dont think you should play violent video game if you are 14 and under. you become to think killing is ok but is not. it also doesnt use much of yor brain because you are just pushing a button.

Yes you do the new town shooting. The shooter played those kind of games. As you can see it didnt turn out well. if you dont believe me look it up.
