Hello Jamie.

To answer you questions regarding ranks and experience, no. TF2 has none of that. The Holiday Punch are items you found randomly while playing. You can find ANY kind of weapon randomly, all you have to do is keep playing.

To the crates and keys. Yes, you will need keys to open crates, which you can buy or trade for them, but beware. Opening crates are a gamble. The item you find can range anywhere from a $1500 hat to a $.20 weapon.

I hope this helped you out a bit.

By premium servers, do you mean servers like Saign and Nighteam? If so, it's best not to play on those. Those servers are pay-to-win. They let you cheat as long as you pay money. Do not play on those servers. Pretty much 95% of the TF2 population hates those servers.

Now, there are another type of premium servers you need to know about. There's premium servers like Skial, where if you donate, you can have some particle effects to your character, but this in NO WAY give you stats or make you better than anyone else.

I'll give you some examples of those servers.
Saign servers, if you pay, you get unlimited ammo and +50 health per kill. Pretty overpowered, right?

On Skial servers, if you donate, you can glow a different color, just for cosmetic effects.

I hope this helped you. Feel free to ask anymore questions!

Premium servers? Stay away from them. It's not some official thing, it's just some guy's server, they're just called that because they give benefits for those that donate to the owner. Game-breaking benefits.

Actually, there is reserved slots. The different color, that was just an example. You can check up about all the donator's benefits right here.[www.skial.com]

I like Lotus servers. I am a donator, and along with that comes the ability to join servers when full, switch teams, initiate diciplanary votes (usually has to have four people), and end of round invulnerability. These servers do not put up with cheating in the least and many good players.

It tends to kick the person who's been afk the most out of all of the people in the server. I've never been kicked from a server before.

You get exp for every kill you get. If you scroll over your weapons you'll notice it has a level. Once a weapons reaches lvl 100 you'll be able to prestige and your weapon quality upgrades to vintage and so forth.

He's lying to you. The weapon levels are there just for show. They do nothing at all. A level 100 weapon is the same exact thing as a level 1 weapon.
