It's really easy/ The only "reward" that I get from it is the feeling of owning kids, and trying to up my rank in a server.

I just played KOTH Harvest and went 515 to 25.

Aside from Heavy being super OP now, it's pure rocks. You don't find many games that have ongoing support/changes 2.5 years after its release.

I'm not amazing, but I'm certainly above average. I know a few tricks... mua ha ha. (Legit tricks, hacks is babies)

Yes, and for this I tip my hat to Valve. One of the few real PC developers out there. Sadly, they may be moving away from that though...

You should play competitively then. Pub scrubs are a far cry from playing against clans.

They're not OP at all. They're such easy targets for Snipers, Demo's, Soldiers.

this. it's not an uberpro type of game (ie CS1.6) - you just get out there and have fun - kill a few guys, and get out... maybe you're looking for something more serious and competitive - perhaps BF: BC2?

Flame much? TF2 doesn't feel like a twitch shooter to me, the game play feels too slow especially without bunny hopping :/. If you think that bhopping is easy than try hopping on a game like CSS/CS 1.6 and bhopping for a good 20 jumps consecutively. I'd consider myself good at TF2, I've had the game since Beta and my problem is that it just feels too slow, less skill based, too easy, and too casual friendly for me :/.

I already tried that, I played in the CEVO TF2 Beta tournament when the game was in Beta.

Although I agree that's cool and all, there's no competition when it comes to the king of doing that all for free. Enemy Territory. Free + Support 2003 to 2008 then it started to slack badly. Well IMO.

Also, there is a competitive side to TF2 the rivals games such as CS, and CSS. You just need to have a team.
