Should The Angry Army Play Team Fortress 2?

 

Leave your vote and your opinion in the Thread Below!
*No Flamewars
*No Council Bashing
*Respect Current Decisions, but know it can be reversed with enough demand from members in The AJSA!

 

(Following was taken from the suggestion thread; not reflective of this poster's opinions)

PROS:

First off, Team Fortress 2 is a free game, meaning alot of people get to play it. Secondly, it is a very varied game, with many gamemodes and ways to play. It also isn't hard to run servers or play, it being an old game. AJSA members can even make items for the game using the community workshop.

CONS:

Alas, no game is flawless: TF2 being a free game CAN feel like a cashgrab at times, trading can ususally elivate this. It also can sometimes be problemsome, being a constantly updated game that it crashes, updates also usually eliviate this. It also has a mic feature, so little kids can sometimes come along with their ear shattering voice, again there is a mute option inside steam. The community is very wide and so of course theres gonna be douches that want to trade, or just spray [REDACTED] (it also has a spray feature, btw).

But if you can get past the douchenozzles and the glitches, TF2 is a fun game, with fun people and REALLY fun gameplay.

 

 

Current Council Decision: FAILED! Game did not accumulate enough votes.

 

 

***Please Remember that even if The Angry Army doesn't Officially Support The Game or Create a Game Division within it, that you can by all means still play the game with your AJSA Tag if you would like to do so! People actively playing in Teamspeak is a good sign of the game's real health.

Should we also give a vote on which gamemode would be best?

And yes the game is good no argument there but it does get boring after a while but its better to play with friends instead of randoms you don't know, better teamwork and such.

 

so little kids can sometimes come along with their ear shattering voice, again there is a mute option inside steam. The community is very wide and so of course theres gonna be douches that want to trade, or just spray [REDACTED] (it also has a spray feature, btw).

That problem can be easily fixed if we had people as in-game servers as moderators and admins of course, I was an admin in Garry's Mod once, between Garry's Mod and Teamfortess 2 administration its not hard to do since both of those games are easy to control, which makes the server clean of plebs coming around and people who scam.

Lets do this. I love playing this game, especially with a well organised team. I'm open to most roles but I tend to prefer engineer, soldier and demo knight (even if I'm especially good overall). Don't ever let me be a spy though.

I like tf2 and i dont think it pay2win since all the weapon have good AND bad point and you can get them all with a non premium account.. (and you can be premium by buying the shittiest low price item in the shop)  yes the weapon drop is random but it fine.

and maybe having a server with a admins would be good and easy to moderate (exemple: Porn spray witch are extremely popular or mic-spammer )

That's what I said in my post too, being an admin or moderator in tf2 is plain easy to do, so at least someone here agrees too :)

I would absolutely love to see this game played. It's fun, highly enjoyable due to its mechanics and characters, competitive as it is very well balanced, and overall a game that in my opinion doesn't get enough light as a competitive game. Regardless, I hope for the best of this game and respect the councils decision regardless. Thanks all!

You should edit the first post to say that "An AJSA member HAS contributed an item to the game" ;3

Anyway, I'm glad you guys finally put up a poll, I of course voted yes on it. I would like to see more support for this game ASAP! TF2 while kinda buggy and very much community driven is a classic and great game that has aged pretty well despite how long it's been out. Also remember that this game does also support competitive game modes, so we can easily set up and start training teams to go out there and win us some tournaments.

I play this game regularly, and the servers I usually go on have great people to play and enjoy the game with.
Having a server for the AJSA would be even greater.

Sure thing. This game is awesome and why would it feel like cashgrabbing? I don't know what i would want to buy to make my winning spree even better I mean, you can basically get any weapon through trading or crafting it ourself by collecting scrap metal.

How is TF2 a cashgrab? I've been playing for years and haven't spent a dime.  I even have a few weapons that are worth around $50 each from running the market. You never have to pay for weapons with cash since they are given to you randomly, and you can turn those weapons you don't like into scrap metal to sell to someone for a weapon you do like. TF2 sort of has it's own forms of currency

Scraps

Reclaimed metal

Refined metal

I'm oblivous as to how TF2 is a cashgrab, besides dirty weapons and hats (items bought on the market) always sell for much less and aren't worth as much.

Oh man it's looking good for TF2! How many votes are actually required for it to be supported???

I don't know why you're asking why it can feel like a cashgrab at times even though I outright said "Trading can usually eliviate this"

Anyvays, I don't feel the need to post with my opinions because the original post is basically a copypaste of mine from the request post. *Holds up a glass of wine* A toast, to Angry Joe, for letting us play tf2 as a community!

We'll need a lot more votes if this is going to get in, especially when there's the option for people to just pop in just to vote no on a game they've never had an interest in, and don't care if others do.

To be fair, the poll states if you're going to be ACTIVELY playing the game with the AJSA. I sincerely doubt "no" votes counteract "yes" votes.
