If you run a dedicated server, you can set it to tournament mode.

SOunds like you want valve to get the word out that these modes are a thing? Isee no harm in that.

There is a bit of a gap between pubs and even lobbies, let alone full competitive, but what makes them important is that they take a lot of teamwork and because of that they take a fair deal of skill before you can really go in them.

Including them as an official gamemode will make it end up like MvM, full of people who don't know what they're doing. There's already a lot of complaints there for MvM, and that's against bots, imagine against actual players.

I know, but these kind of servers are extremely rare. It'd be great if Valve reserved some of it's servers for servers with tournament mode enabled.
What I meant by that is you should host your own server.

Must be really hard for valve to use +maxplayers 18 and class limit plugin

Valve doesn't give a ♥♥♥♥ about tf2, let's face it

There's a difference between able to and seeing it as beneficial.

Heey! Another discussion? Possibly outside waldos thread? I'm okay with that.

Problem is that lobbies aren't supported or encouraged by Valve. If they would, I'd like them a bit more. Imagining how much people goes pub stomper instead of trying lobbies just because they don't know about them or dislike how they work, if Valve would encourage them the'd go and try them. And by the way they also have hour limit, so people with no clue what is going on couldn't join. Even if I think that's unfair to them, it's probably right.

Now I'm consedering in this still stays a community thing, not a Valve gamemode, okay?

That analogy to MvM is possible, but misunderstood. It's a gamemode, not a match. Restricting it to people who paid for tickets would destroy Valve's reputation. Plus, nobody knew how to play it whe it was new, did they? Taking it MvM's status now, it's a bit better then it used to.

I'd be fine with that, as long as it still stays pretty "do this if you're serious and want to get a higher challenge than pubs, not if you've just played the game for 30 hours and found that you could play engie and get a kill with your sentry sometimes."

I had more of bootcamp in my mind, the serious players usually don't go there (in mvm for mann up, in competitive for well, competitive) and so because it's readily available and anyone can go there, you'll tend to get a long of people that plainly shouldn't be there.

Eeeh... I don't like it, for the following reasons

My 6s team have played with eachother forever. A team that gets picked for me automatically will have no strats, no Skype and probable no knowledge. Even if I'm using a strat my team would recognise, becuase that's what I do, my new "team" would ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ it up.

Also, they might not be able to communicate. TF2 is a multi-lingual game, so, maybe if I got UK'ers and US'ers, it might go well. If I get Russians, French or Spanish, I can't understand them, and they can't understand me.

But this wouldn't stop you from playing with your team.
If I played it with my team we would be matched up against people who don't know how to comp. We would mash them and they would quit comp.

Point of this discussion is something else. Try and go for waldo's thread.

Having it only as a full party gamemode option would be good.
You get get 8 of your friends together to form a team and then start the search, where it matches you up with 9 opponents who have done the same as you.
