I found it really hard to believe that he's truly sorry when he decided to announce his comeback through an ARG.Well, uh, Sketchek's back!
Yeah, I can kind of understand why he did it (fear of anger from a community that... doesn't let go easy, being a stupid teenager, etc.) and it's cool that he owned up to it instead of taking the easy way and saying "I got better! :)" but between the ARG thing and the whole "virtue-signalling e-celebs" accusation he hasn't really handled the return well.
Obviously it can vary from server to server but I find that a lot of people who play this game are usually pretty chill. I've seen stuff like that happen too.Here’s a long story about what happened to me tonight on a casual server.
Ok so I dived back into tf2 after another year long break and had the strangest experience with an online community in ages.
Started as huntsman sniper on a payload map. Instantly miss a demoman by spawn and get killed, leading to our engineer’s teleporter entrance getting destroyed. My fault to be fair, but I was still rusty to say the least.
Within seconds the engineer is in chat saying “kick shit sniper” to my team, and starts a vote to kick me. I feel a little bit deflated but still try my best despite the looming vote kick. The vote fails and I feel relieved, manage a lucky kill and jarate assist, but my confidence is boosted slightly.
Oh but this Engineer wasn’t done yet. This guy (with a Donald trump profile picture, just an observation) proceeds to say in team chat “if the sniper isn’t kicked then I’m not building teleporters”. He then starts another vote to kick me. Wow, I thought, that is some serious bitterness he has in a casual server.
The best part was when the vote failed again, another person on my team said “you know, we could just kick you instead”. Boom, a vote starts and he gets kicked in seconds. I was just sitting there grinning, I couldn’t believe that just happened. I ended up changing to demo part way through and put up a decent fight.
We lost the game in the end but I didn’t care, I was having fun trying my best for the team who had my back.
We have a small group that still plays TF2 sometimes. I'll send you a discord invite to our group.
Yeah if it was a game like CS:GO or rainbow six siege, I have a feeling I might not have been given the time of day by my team.
I would give marketplace.tf a shot, that's the premier TF2 buying/selling website and they payout through Paypal. They don't just buy from you though, once it sells they pay you minus 10% of the selling price.what is a good site to sell items for cash? I used bitskins for my csgo stuff and for a while I was rocking their smaller niche tf2 side but it isnt big enough. i have a luchadore with sunbeams unusual that needs to pay my bills, not interested in getting a stupid amount of crate keys
If you like the 360 version I would suggest giving the PC version a shot, it's free 2 play so it costs nothing to try and it's quite a bit different, having gotten 10 years of content updates with new weapons, balance changes, new features, new game modes and new maps. My favorite game mode is payload and it wasn't even in the launch version of the game.For the 1st time ever... I played TF2 for the 1st time this weekend. Funny enough, it's on The Orange Box from 360 disc via Xbox One BC.
And, it turns out has a dedicated player base still. Full games constantly. Though, very vanilla, very fun. Little bit of lag from time to time.
Idk why I never played TF2 before now. Esp as I used to love TFC back during early/mid 2000s. Played it an insane amount. Hell, even helped make maps for it (nothing popular or really good, lol)
I wonder if my laptop could even handle the game, probably not.
There have been numerous reports, and sightings in the wild, of an apparent serious economy flaw that is resulting in the guaranteed uncratings of Unusual quality items. As a result, demand for certain types of crates believed to be affected has soared, and supplies of Unusual quality items are flash flooding the market.
Scrap.TF has disabled its Unusual banking feature as a result.
- It is currently not recommended to trade for anything at this time. Real world money trades, although they've never been sanctioned by Valve outside of the Steam Community Market, are especially hazardous at this time.
- It is not yet known how, or even if Valve will clean up any damage caused as a result of this error.
- As well, the fates of those known to be actively partaking in such activities are also unknown.
- DUE TO THE UNCHARTED TERRITORY OF THE AFTERMATH OF SUCH A FLAW'S EXISTENCE IN ANY VALVE MULTIPLAYER GAME WITH ITEMS, THIS IS A PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION! THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY, HOWEVER REMOTE, OF A GLOBAL ROLLBACK OF ALL TEAM FORTRESS ITEM TRADING ACTIVITY
Holy crap, you're right! 5 for 5 for me. I wonder what they will do. I'm guessing an inventory rollback to just before the patch dropped and refunding keys used.
Looks like 20 doesn't actually work, I tried it and it gave me stranges. Everything else worked though. I unboxed a few unusuals.
