this just isn't fun anymore
i started tp play tf2 when it wasn't yet f2p and enjoyed it. But when it came f2p it ruined it for me. All this kids screaming everhyvere and thinking that they are better then you. So it got boring really fast and i havent been playing tf for some time now. Any tips how to make it fun again like it used to be?

It's not every time that someone is being annoying on the mic and you can always just mute someone who is.

You are welcome to the ',..,' monster server, it's my main group and I'm admin, I'm in the top 10 scores on the server and I'm 100% active on it, I mute many mic spammers and what not so if you are interested add me, we got a really friendly community which will make you feel right at home.

well, the problem isn't the mic's because you can mute them, the problem is bad players and those idiots who idle, getting banned for no reason, autobalansed when allmost end of the round and winning...... and the list goes on

Stop being an elitist snob in pubbies and playing in pubbies and go into competitive play.

It really depends, I suppose. Can you recall the names of any particular servers you play on, and/or what type of server you 'would' like to play?
After a good long search one night while pubbing (About 15 minutes) I only came up with 3 maps. 2 were payload, the other payload race. Added to favorites, being a vanilla gametype, but...
not good enough...

You thinking of trying something a little bit more... competetive? eh eh? Nudge nudge wink wink? More serious players, joining together for legitimate matches of the competetive nature, yeah? Wink wink nudge nudge?
Check out TF2Lobby.come some time, best used while using the In-Game browser so you spend no time between games getting into the next- other times, you may spend 15-20 minutes waiting for the game to fill up.
Anyway, if you anything about TF2 competetive gameplay then you know about highlander, 6v6 and other game rules. At Tf2 lobby, once a "lobby" is full, everyone is given a "link" of sorts, that when you click on it gives the command to TF2 to 'load' the server up in game, and input the password automatically. In some cases you may have a disconnection problem before joining with everyone else, but most lobbies will not only post saying the server has started, giving the link to join, AND the temporary password, incase you are unable to join on your first try, manually inputting the password yourself will get you in when asked. :P

Of course, there is a time limit when the game starts, generally it is customary for the 2 team medics to check their team for all their members being present. Double checking with eachother that all members have arrived, and the medics will ready-up. When the medics do, so will the rest. There are cases of course where it may just seem a little funky and people show signs of not being completely sure on the ettiquite of competitive match-ups.

But, if you're getting bored of kids, F2ps, the pony craze or such- and have that yerning for good competetive games, where people actually try, and/or know what they're doing.. Sounds like
Tf2lobby is something you'll really enjoy getting into.

Ya I will always love this game. Not only for the trading system but I played TFC a lot back in the day right after college and loved it. You can mute "the kids" as I like to call them but most of them are in their 20's and obnoxious as hell.

Finally, somebody who notices that about them.

You started TF2 while it was F2P. If you don't enjoy it then don't play no point in forcing yourself to enjoy a game.

I'm sure the OP knows a whole lot about TF2 before it was F2P considering he joined Steam only a month before the uber update...

Hey, if he had it for a month, I'd think he'd have SOME idea what the community was like. Maybe not much, but enough to notice a change.

Yeah, I've been noticing recently that a lot of the adult players aren't too much better than the prepubescents they're always harping on.

well, there's always bot servers to keep you occupied. same as the regular servers for the most part, but without the chatter

The problem is there's a huge skill gap between pubs and competitive play.
