I'm starting to not like this game.
It's not the game itself, it's the community that's being destroyed. Just like CoD is filled with kids and raging high school students, TF2 is filled with trolls and bronies...

Okay, the bronies don't really bother me. I don't get it, but whatever. What does bother me is the way that it's everywhere, the anti-social behavior and the constant trolling.

It's Lone Wolf Fortress or Hat Fortress, the Team aspect has almost completely been removed. Besides modes like MvM, it's pretty easy not to function as a team anymore.

I know, I know, "welcome to the internet", but this game used to be a nicer place to play.

Exactly. No one tries to contribute, there's always way too many of one class for no reason. Even in MvM, you'll get people that are just a pain to play with.

Yep. A lot of the time the team is just filled with spies, or snipers. Last night even, I played MvM, and we had 2 spies and 2 snipers. Only me and my friend really contributed to it. We couldn't get past wave 2.

And you can't say anything about that, because the people that would do something like that are the same people that would say something like "get better, scrub".

Play on good servers? On the servers I go to, there's plenty of teamwork and never more than 2 snipers/spies. Also no ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. (Mostly)

lol last night we complained at someone for being a sniper and the next round he didn't fire a single shot. Then we were about to vote kick him somehow to get voted into another round where he did nothing at all.

I think you can take a break from it.
It happens encountering almost everytime with that kind of problem.
Or try to search on recommended servers, you can do that as well.

And yeah, there's also the luck fact.

I think poor team play is the reason for a lot of "Pyro is OP" complaints. It's not the Pyro, it's your team not working together!

It's likely the servers you play on. I haven't noticed a decrease in quality in the TF2 community. There are still a lot of friendly and helpful people out there.

Nah, it's the items dude. They ruin the original balance in the gameplay. ♥♥♥♥ty cinnunity members are in every game.

How to find a good team:
Don't go in
valve servers
sikal servers
niaittam severs
Instaed go in clan owned servers
and play mannvsmachine with friends

Addendum:
Look for servers that don't have
mlp
fim
brony
crit
in their tags.

Alternatively, make your own server.

This thread is about the people, not the items. I don't see how items ruin the balance of gameplay at all.

Also, thanks everyone for the advice. I play on lots of servers, some are clan owned, some are not. There are a few in particular that are especially bad. It just seems like everywhere I go now, there is someone complaining/trolling about some thing. If it's not one person, it's the whole server.

It's the internet society as a whole really. I see it in almost every game online I've played lately. Entitlement runs rampant. Same with their ego. Troll and "WTF" style humor is taking over. That one site with the 4 in it is slowly stretching it's boundaries. And it's starting to seep into every portion of the internet and gaming culture.

It kinda sucks. But, best we can do is to actually be pleasnt to other people and contain it as much as possible.
