Team Fortress 2
is a "Free to Play", Multiplayer, First Person Shooter (FPS), and a Hat (Cosmetic) Simulator.
A very fun game. Especially, very addictive and good for relaxation, but it depends how good you are at the game or on your picked class.Classes & Teams:
There're about 9 classes in the TF2
: [Offensive Classes:] Scout, Soldier, Pyro, [Defensive Classes:] Demoman, Heavy (Weapons Guy), Engineer, [Support Classes:] Medic, Sniper and Spy.
Each class has it's own strength and weakness. For example, Spy has a low health, but he can kill can instantly by backstabbing you.
TF2 has 2 teams: BLU and RED. They hate each other, and they attack each other. Nothing interesting.Maps (Levels) & Gamemodes:
Maps can be different (pretty obvious). But unfortunately, maps can affect the gameplay, because like I said before, each class has it's own weakness. For example, Sniper can kill you pretty easily in a very wide map, and you can get annoyed.
Each map has it's own gamemode. Here is a list of all official
- Capture the Flag (ctf)
- Control Points (cp)
- Territorial Control (tc)
- Payload (pl)
- Payload Race (plr)
- King of the Hill (koth)
- Medieval Mode

- Slender Fortress (sl)
- Prop Hunt (ph)
- Zombie Fortress

- Jail Break
- And many more.
You don't need them to play a game. Players usually care so much about cosmetics, because they want to look good and feel good, while they play a game. Most of them, spend about $500 on the game, only because of the hats. Players also care about the "qualities" of the items. Some qualities can be very expensive, so I don't suggest to spend money on crap. However, hats are not the only ones. Players also waste money on weapons, due different qualities or reskins.IF you really want to get hats, then I suggest you to read this guide: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=248435114&searchtext=Free+Hats
IF you want more hats, then I suggest you to understand, and learn some basics about the TF2 Trading Community, and about trading itself. Here is a guide:
There are 2 different kinds of TF2 updates: Official Updates and Community Created Updates (they're official, too). What's the difference, you ask?
Well, it's pretty simple:Official Updates
- Are created by the main creator/company called VALVe. In their updates, you can find new gamemodes, new weapons (which are usually made in the summer or in the winter), new maps, bug fixes and especially there is a 90% chance that VALVe is going to add new hats, made by the community from the Steam's workshop.Community Created Updates
- VALVe usually cares what community makes, but they don't allow community mess with the balance of the game, meaning VALVe doesn't allow us to create new weapons, which can have different stats, and especially add new maps. (However, VALVe added community maps only in the beginning, when TF2 was still new and fresh. But now everything is different, because in nowadays TF2 became as a very popular game.)
So like I said before, VALVe actually cares what community creates. So VALVe likes to add new hats and new weapons (just models) created by some talented people from the community. But majority of the community hates to see, that every new update has a new hat. And to be honest: It's normal.
If you didn't know, there was a big over hyped update called "End of the Line", and it was actually the most useless update in the TF2. It had tons of cosmetics, a new taunt, a new weapon, which is a actually a reskin with no stats.
Before an update arrived, the community really hoped to see a map called "Snowplow" with the new gamemode, but when the update arrived, the map was canceled by VALVe. VALVe said, that the map is too confusing for new players
. Later, that sentence became as a meme
, because other maps made by VALVe are more confusing, than a "Snowplow". Anyways, let's move on:
Unbalanced Gameplay & Weapons:
TF2 has 2 kinds of players: F2P (Free to Play) players (aka noobs) and P2P (Premium to Play) players (aka experienced players). Imagine BLU team full of noobs, and RED team full of experienced players. Is this a balanced match? Heck no. REDs would win every bloody match.
However, in VALVe servers you may find a voting system, which allows any player to vote something. Here is a list current voting types:
- Kick Player
- Restart the Match
- Change Level/Next Level
- Scramble Teams
- Disable Team Autobalance
- Eternaween (Allow Halloween-restricted items for two hours. Player must have an item to enable this voting choice.)
So imagine again those 2 teams again: Imagine, that you joined the BLU team, and you see that the teams are not balanced at all, and whenever you come out of your base - you always die. So you decide to vote to "Scramble Teams". So what do you think what's going to happen?
The voting will fail, because your enemies are having fun AND because your teammates (noobs) doesn't know how to vote at all, or just completely ignores the voting.Now let's talk about weapons, shall we? Nah, let's not, because VALVe finally fixed all those unbalanced weapons. I could mention them like a long time ago, but now it's not worth it. I will still save this title, just in case.The Story:
Well there is a story in the TF2, but unfortunately you can't find it in-game. You can only find it in the official TF2 comics. You can find comics in the Official TF2 Website, right here.[www.teamfortress.com]The Community:
The community was great, until TF2 became for free. Right now, if you go to any official VALVe server, then you may hear some screaming or crying children with microphones. I hope your ears doesn't explode.
To be honest, TF2 community is still great. It depends where you live. Usually, I really love to play with Americans. I never loved to play with Europeans, because they love judge each other, and sometimes they're so speechless. How cruel!What is a Premium Account?
Premium account means an Upgraded account. In the beginning you can only have 1 backpack slot. If you buy something from the Mann. Co Store
(in-game store), then your account will be upgraded and you will have 6 slots in your backpack. It's very important to have a Premium account, because 1 backpack slot if not enough for you.
I suggest you to buy a Mann Co. Supply Crate Key
. Once you bought something from the Mann Co. Store
- don't use it again. Use it only to buy keys. Once you understand all basics about trading - you will know what to do with your bought key(s). (Just trade your key for the metal, and then buy tons of hats and weapons, as much as you want!)Overall, my rating is 7 out of 10.
Remember: Once you start to love this game, then there is a small chance, that you will leave it.
Everything depends, what you like or love, or how (quickly) do you understand things.
Also, I am very sorry if I was very rude or mad in this review. It's because sometimes, TF2 can make your feelings hurt, especially your sanity. If you don't want to risk your life, then simply don't play this god damm game.Have Fun!
