    But it's turned into a major grind/achievement fest to grab all the upgrades and weapons.

    Just making a thread about it.

    You don't have to have them... I can own shit up with any standard weapons.

    Depends on how good you are. If you can pull off direct hits with the rockets, you're damn wrong since the Direct Hit is a must-have for anyone that can pull off direct hits (compared to the OG RL).

    I fell off the TF2 boat a while back, before most of the major updates...tried playing again a few days ago and there's just too much going on for my tastes. I respect Valve for their continual free content and updates...but it's just too much for me now. I prefer classic, vanilla TF2.

    I'm scared to see how the mid battles will go when I have to take on 2 Scouts, a Demo and 2 Soldiers at the same time. :wtc:

    I think that's pretty much how I feel. I can't really be bothered to start grinding out achievements and kills to earn what feels like recommended items.

    Grind for achievements? :rofl:

    Just play the game, as long as you keep killing people you should just naturally get achievements. There are some that are hard to pull off by accident, but the first ~12 you can stumble upon by just moving around and shooting people.

    There are servers to get all the weapons and stuff if you're too lazy/don't want to do it yourself.

    New patch ruined the gameplay for me. Demomen dont belong zooming around the map, neither do soldiers. No one under any circumstance should ever be faster than a scout IMO.

    Delevopers keep patching games to death, same thing happened to BF2... patches killed it

    yea I stopped playing shortly after the hats and all that. While I think some of them are kinda cool and I see why they did it, I just cant get into it. I liked the original because I could just pick it up and play and everyone was on equal grounds. Once people started bottin and shit for gay ass hats is what really killed it for me. If I wanted to deal with all that I would just go play WOW :rofl:

    so you dont want to play because you dont have items that may or may not be better than what you can get with 20 minutes
