Has F2P become No one spy checks anymore?
Jesus Fing Christ. It's like people don't realize you can actually spy check.

One game a spy was literally running trains of people because NO ONE SPY CHECKS.

And not only that, has it become NO ONE WARNS ANYONE ELSE of a spy?

If there's a reason to hate F2P, it's that.

Have people become so incompetent/lazy that they can't even do the spy voice command?

What are you talking about?
I check for Spies all the time. Even if I am a different class I still shoot at suspicious characters and sometimes I get lucky.
I'm actually woried that people are neglecting Medics.

Maybe that one game had a bunch of non-spy checking ♥♥♥♥♥s. What is worse is that the #1 person on the other team was a spy but no one was actively spy checking. I cut his point growth down as a pyro but 1 pyro can only do so much.

May be F2P don't know that spy exists.

New players would make mistakes or be unaware of details even if they paid for the game. But if it makes you feel better to use the label, no one can stop you. You should try out racism and sexism while you're at it, those are good excuses to hate people, too.

I'm pretty sure that they know they exist, because I don't think the players are asking them selves, "Who is that smoking man is the corner of the select a class screen?"
And for when I play pyro (Which isn't often), I don't spy check unless I see the spy directly and try to chase him down, but if I see a spy in any class, I use the Spy! voice command.

Actually, I see more people complaining that people spycheck too much, funny that.

I don't see people shooting around the area for a cloaked spy, but I do see people wasting their time shooting teammates that are obviously not a spy. It would be great if they did check for cloaked spies, but just being cautious would allow the spy to not accomplish much.

People don't often communicate unless you're playing on a specific server. It's always been like that. I've hardly seen people telling their team where the spies are located even before the Uber Update.

people spy check to much in my opinion, it is a easy kill

People did this before the Uber Update. There will always be a pocket of players blissfully unaware that spies can turn invisible. Always!

How can one not spy check when everyone is yelling SPY all the time.

Because they are F2P, they even walk like spy and got to waste time spy check every one of them.

If you ACT like a spy, as in running stright at an engie nest disguised, trying to avoid touching teamates or coming from the enemy's direction, anyone with a eyes will get suspicious and come after you.

I see people spycheck all the time, but that's probably just because almost every server I go on, even non-valve servers, has at least 3 spies per team, so evryone checks everywhere to ensure the engies are safe. Not all of the spies are F2P either, just idiots that refuse to be team players and switch classes, despite having like 5 snipers or 4 spies.

And if no one else is warning people of spies, then why don't you warn them? Use a mic or text chat and tell people that a spy is in play. Just because no one else is talking doesn't mean you shouldn't.
