Well, the short answer is yes, it's alive, but no one wants short answers right?
Well TF2 has been in development for 9 years! When it came out everyone was being crazy, buying hats, crafting them, trading, it was fun.
Until some updates ruined the game, they reworked some weapons, which the community hates, 'cause they want their beloved weapons to be the same.
TF2 went down after the gun mettle update, where they introduced skins, CS: GO much? And they introduce more!
But TF2 really got shot down when Overwatch came out, Valve took Dota, Blizzard takes away TF2.
Nonetheless, TF2 is a fun game, a great game indeed. I would still play it, collect hats, and do some crazy stuff. TF2 only comes alive when a new update is released, Like the jungle inferno update.
They introduced new pyro weapons, a weapon for our beloved Hoovy too, and MORE SKINS, WTH VOLVO?
Only veterans have stayed in TF2, the ones really devoted to the game, while new players will experience crappy gameplay since they face players who have spent over 1k hours in the game. I've seen a lot of gibus players,
Really sad that they got to play in this day and age of TF2, 2013, TF2 was VERY lively, voice chat was fun, not necessarily competitive, people actually ENJOYED the game.
Hopefully, they release something better than Overwatch (not like overwatch is good, but the hype really pushed it) TF3? Maybe? No...
Gaben hates the number 3.
If I would recommend an FPS game, it would be TF2, its free, lots of gameplay, and easy to learn.
So is TF2 dead? No, not yet, its still coming back to life, it will take over the world again, someday.
I want you guys to help revive TF2, and it's amazing content!
Okay, this is the end folks, hope you enjoyed reading, and see you in the next, ARTICLE!
