Tf2 has a maturing fanbase that simply has less time to play

Welp TF2 is dying so time to get a hair cut I'll do it Kurt Cobain stye with a shotgun .

With more and more players being very good making it harder for new players to enjoy and in turn fall in love with the game it may well die in the near future. What kills me most is a freaking taunt costs 8 dollars on a 10 year old game. Seriously? Valve is no better than EA.

I lost interest of the game back in 2015 when they nerf one my fav weapons in the gun mettle update. Updates are SUPER rare, I expect valve to do something about the game in every 2 months, its just so long and completely random that they update the game it feels like nothing was new. Everyone kept using stock, I rarely see anyone use other weapons. There are nothing but shotguns, no rifles or anythimg automatic. Unusuals are dead to me, especially weapons (kinda). To me, TF2 was just getting stale at the point, so I just moved on. lol If those numbers are fake, then good for the community, tf2 might live on..........I think. Also, I think the one thing that made tf2 so special were the new weapons, it seems like valve don't give them out ALOT to the 9 classes, recently pyro but how about medic, demo, heavy, soldier, and etc. I always want to see scout with the nailgun, since valve scrapped it for a unknown reason. Valve could try new things (currently new projects, not tf2).....idk.

Dont understand peoples reaction at this! Game is not dead or even changed for anyone. Farming bots on idle servers have been removed, so unless thats where you were spending your time then how does this affect anyones gameplay or longevity of TF2. Real player number is 20-30k average now and guess what? It always was....

Just die tf2! How are we going to get to 3 if 2's just won't die?!
Ralph The Frog (1 month ago)
I think tf2 "lost its magic" as people would say, because they don't make original updates anymore. Ever since gun mettle, tf2 has just been trying to do what csgo is doing, but tf2 isn't csgo. Instead of adding cool original content like mvm, they just add in skins and a few maps. THATS BORING!!!!

in a way i hope the player count drop is from bots because it shows that tf2 isn't gonna die next week

Meet your match update broke the game I came back for the pyro update but it was ok. but if I want multiplayer I go for left for dead or the unreal tournament beta.

the real question to answer here should be: "Why the actual holy *FUCK* is people willing to *PAY* , *REAL* , *MONEY* , for a bunch of pixels!??!?!" more so! PAYING to a third party so they would GET them the items! that is the culmination of stupidity!
JustSmurfinAround (1 month ago)
@Valve News Network, There is currently no way to get marketable or tradable drops from Dota 2, so any item bots would be non-existent.

SlasherLink (2 months ago)
I haven't played Tf2 for probably 2 months at this point. After the spark I got from Jungle Inferno, TF2 just kinda stagnated for me again. I've been pretty adamant about Valve not seeing TF2 as a priority considering the unimproved competitive mode and casual matchmaking which, even after almost 2 years, is still below the standard set by quickplay. After queueing in to matches already over almost every time and incredibly unbalanced matches, I just kinda threw my hands up in the air and got back into playing Overwatch. I'm not about to say "TF2 is dead and sucks while Overwatch is just flat-out better". Not only is that a matter of taste but Overwatch isn't flawless either. Regardless of how you feel about Overwatch though, I don't think anyone can argue that Blizzard doesn't care about Overwatch. The game is getting consistent updates and new content both cosmetic and game changing, almost like how Valve treated TF2 back during it's peak in the early 2010s. Valve has to know that TF2 has been struggling a bit ever since Meet Your Match but doesn't feel the need to hire some extras for the TF2 team so they can help get these things fixed faster. Not to say the current TF2 team isn't doing what they can but they clearly need some extra manpower if they want to make the game better at any kind of decent pace.

AZNwannabe06 (2 months ago)
Or maybe it’s just the super grindy contract bonuses that require you to play the game in a sub-optimum, unintuitive and unfun way? Just sayin’ Poor choices were made on Valve’s part for some of those.

Yeah it's interesting. I've been starting to become more and more familiar with people on the servers I play on, I wouldn't disagree with this video.

I've said it many times across multiple tf2 channels. *TF2 is a dead game. It was a game that shouldn't even get old this quick.*

Really should make a new game or completely refresh it.
opposingforcegamer22 (2 months ago)
I was trying to find new tf2 players and I did! For now 6 friends of mine tried out the tf2 and they like it! I think that everyone needs to help Team fortress 2 to be more alive again. You guys need to help to this game,none of us wants to watch how tf2 ends up like Deathmatch Classic and Half-Life 2 Deathmatch.

MacValent (2 months ago)
Valve just needs to give tf2 a bit of love hiring some new devs that would like to work on tf2, or allowing the community to make their own updates along side valve if valve realized that tf2 despite its age could be a very good e sport and does make them a lot of money could help both tf2s player base incress and make more money for valve (Which is all Gaben really cares about) lol

Honestly. Im gonna miss tf2. Theyre going to most likely take another break before the next update. Ill be happy if we get canon material. Animations, comics, doesnt matter, ill be happy.

Couple things I've noticed on the trading side: - bots haven't gone anywhere, they still dominate trade listings (esp. backpack.tf) - trading price for keys was just under 38 ref a week or two ago. Price slowly dropped to ~37 since then. - real-money price for TF2 keys has been stable, except for a brief 10% dip (Steam Market, Feb. 13 1PM EST) - backpack.tf/cs has not recorded any drop in the # of keys existing. Wouldn't bans mean those items disappear? From the above info, looks like actual humans are MIA. Bots slowly lowering key-ref trade price due to, in economic terms, reduced demand.

I stopped playing tf2 to focus on studies and work. I just quit the game about in December 2017, not long ago. I will be back to playing once I finished college but I hope this is nothing more than minor stumble.

This is. Scary? Is the word I would use, i don't want my most played game to die yet knowing that there are less players then I thought.
Electronium (2 months ago)
I quit TF2, the reasoning behind that was because the Spy received a major nerf, and now is even harder to play. I would be fine if Valve had lowered the accuracy or got rid of the headshot system but they nerfed both and gave the pyro a huge buff. The dead ringer and the eternal reward also received a nerf for some odd reason. Since my favorite spy setup which is already a difficult set up to play as has all been nerfed. I no longer want to play the game. It's not fun anymore. Yes my comment may be nit picking. But I don't find the game fun anymore. My interest started going down when the game added comp and got rid of pub servers. Comp was ok to add for some, but TF2 shouldn't be looked at as game that is competitive. Kill/Death ratios are sickening and levels aren't what we wanted. I do believe this is fixable. The game hasn't lost my interest due to old age, it's lost my interest due to poor decisions.

I've built a friends list with 200+ people from TF2 back in 2011, 2012, 2013. Every single one of them quit the game. At 4500 hours i finally had to quit, myself. Nonexistent matchmaking in "casual matchmaking" and Valve's refusal to fix it already ruined TF2 for me but when they overbuffed pyro with the new, braindead max damage flames it was just too much. Bye.

*insert "funny" tf2 is dead joke here*
Welp stopped tf2 for a year now because well wanted to get the Australium Force-a-Nature then fore some reason lost interest, cause I don't want to play too much nor spend money on an in-game item, where I already have done couple of times and questioning whether was it worth it, I'm not gonna make gaming a career anyway, just playing it to have fun but with the player base being consisted of toxic 12 yr old minded people, I can't see why I should play anymore if people play games too seriously.
