Yesterday, Valve began offering Team Fortress 2 for free on Steam. However, a community member has made a server plugin that blocks free players so that only paid "premium" members can access servers with the plugin.
Less noobs :P
Bet none of you even play this game.
Do you guys know what happens when a game becomes free? Let alone a game that contains text chat capabilities? Spamming, shit disturbers, and so fourth. I now invision most games being occupied by people whom only play to piss people off/ glitch (if possible)
A good way to stop the massive influx of cheaters I suppose.
Exactly! And the only people disliking these comments are the poor bastards who were too cheap to buy this amazing game long ago like we did. haha
Everyone of you above me is a no good gamer that is not good for any multi-player community. I have been a player of TF2 for years, I got it only a month or 2 after release and I am glad that now my missus and at least 3 of my mates will now be able to play along side me for FREE! What you all forget is that you where all noobs at some point and if this happened to you you'd be pissed off at the ignorant hicks that did it. Thank good for the 20+ Aussie Internode servers that would touch this crap.
U mad? Yep. U mad.
U mad people are so cliche pathetic. Just like saying "first"
Lu Kim :D
"God damn Noobs breaking down my shitty wall"
It's not about them being noobs, it's about the people who will use the free game to cheat since they can play on multiple accounts without having to really worry about being banned.
die in a fire, tyvm
God this makes me happy. The guy who runs my favorite server was trying to figure out a way to do this. Now, he can. No more nubz for us.
Fine with me, let the elitest's play by themselves and let the noobs play with each other.
It's ok, they can join my server. Anyone is welcome! No private slots 32 players 2Fort or Vote and we even have admins on from around the world all day. You can't just lock players out for being a "noob". If memory serves me correctly we were ALL noobs at one point.
This is why we can't have nice things.
I find it funny of people looking at either the extreme good or the extreme bad of this. This can actually serve in a beneficial way mainly because of a few reasons: 1) Newer people don't get constantly crushed and thus feel like not wanting to play the game as much. 2) It makes people want to create newbie friendly servers. 3) It allows people to keep away from more griefers, spammers, and others who just want to ruin people's days(in the span of the time it started the F2P business, I banned possibly a total of around 200 in the past 2 days on my server) 4)(And I dunno why people feel this is overkill) In order to become a "paid" account, all you need to do is spend $1 at the Mann Co. store anyways to get around this. So I'm trying to see how this is extreme in the sense that people have to be called "elitests" for this, and at the same time, this allows newcomers to at least try the game without getting hit with the heavy stuff.
Exactly! It's more so a way to guarantee people who paid don't have to worry about the hackers/greifers/asshats that a F2P shooter brings.
