Anyone know a Non-F2P server ?
Hi everybody, anyone know a Non-F2P server ?
No offense to the F2P, there's good f2p players, but the majority is noob and i'm getting tired of this.

I'm just looking for a servir ip where's only Non-F2P players (premium players).

But i'm not talking about servers with "premium system" (servers where you can be a sentry buster, get a robot skin, have almost infinite ammo just because you donate for the server)

Unless there's a plugin that checks for Free to Play status before someone joins, which I figure would be rather difficult, I don't think what you're asking for is possible; I understand your issue, but it's just something that I don't think exists due to how it would need to be programmed. Not to mention that it's a rather closed mentality, which is partially justifiable, but still rather prejudicial.

The best I could recommend would be competitive lobbies, but if they're public, you may or may not run into the same problem; not to mention that it also limits what you can and cannot play, as well as what weapons you can play with. It's the only server type I can think of that would potentially only house a sort of elite, but even then, the only way to ensure a skilled player base is to have a server run privately, rather than run a public server, so there's no guarantee of it being skilled players.

In short, there's probably no server like this, and even if there is, chances are there's going to be unskilled players on it as well; essentially, unless you find a private server, such as a clan server, with a password to keep others out, then you're probably not going to find what you're looking for.

Well said Octavia.

I got a feeling that Valve wants to include everyone in their servers. Not a lot of people play TF2 if F2P plays with F2P and Premium with Premium. Obviously, Valve also wants F2P'S to see how good being "Premium" is. With Unusuals, hats, etc.Valve doesn't want any segragation against F2P.

You act as if this problem is exclusive to F2Ps. The F2Ps have an excuse because they're new, but the other bad players don't.

TBH I've come across many P2P players (most of them wore Proof of Purchase tho) with noob skill. Being bad isn't restricted only to F2Pers. Generally hat-wearing players are actually good, but trading doesn't exclude bad players you know...

If you're going to go by the logic that the team with more Free to Play lose, then by the same logic more Premium players win; if a team has six Free to Play and two Premium players, and they lose to one with three Premium players and five Free to Play, then the majority of Premium players won. So using "us" in that case doesn't work.

That's not even including the fact that you're making an incorrect judgment on skill based on a relatively irrelevant part of the equation, rather than looking at hours played; I've seen Premium players who have no intention of helping the team, don't care about class composition and play badly in many ways. Saying that Free to Play are the reason you lose is a bad excuse for your own lack of skill; if you're that good, play competitively, or don't expect a public game to always allow you to win due to the fact that anyone can join.

You were a noob once too ya know

Anti-F2P servers exist, and there is a plugin that exists that auto-kicks anyone who isn't premium (I even used to know someone who coded one). They're just hard to find, most servers simply auto-mark f2pers with a [F2P] tag next to their name

fix'd for you.

And P2P or F2P if a person is new to the game, they won't be good regardless of if they bought it, or got it F2P.

Blue Bamf, yes, but not so bad than them. I can't tell you how much F2P I saw trying to kill with the Rocket Jumper, or some guys who rush and keep shooting with shotgun as engie like if they don't even know how to make a sentry, a dispenser and teleports.

Before the F2P, I didn't played Spy because that was ♥♥♥♥ing hard to play it, now I play it when I want because it's too easy, you can run to their base disguised and they don't even react...

It's just because most of them are just Casual Gamers / Cod players / Console Players who don't want to learn how to play, thinking that they won't need it.
At least, there's hope, I see some (rare) times F2P who know how to play.

Oh, and, yeah, after 5 months I created that thread, it finally restarted :D

the majority of trade serve

I wouldn't mind a P2P server either. I agree, not all F2P is bad, but I just got back from a server with the worst F2P players. Then when I called them out, they tried acting "cool" and claiming they had "skill" with things that didn't even make sense:/
