Alright with the latest TF2 update “polycount pack” seems like everyone is lost again and the questions popping out on each pickup game “is this allowed?, and this and that….” is really annoying.
I was reading a Rant by dignitas/dunc at VanillaTF2.org Here that pointed out some stuff that really concerns the future of this game at top competitive level and I really think that our small competitive community with the big gaps of skills levels between the teams we currently have I really think we need to stick a simple weapons & unlocks ruleset that can help us grow in quantity and quality.
It can be fun to use all these new thing on pubs and highlander competitions but for 6vs6 think about it for a second (is all these new stuff popping out now and then taking us away from the original competitive gameplay?) The teamwork, the mastering of the class I really think that the main problem is the new generation will never close the gap with the old school players why? because it will end as personal satisfaction rather than helping the team just to point an example: “woooo I killed the medic with my Mackerel XD” so is a scout risking to get killed and let down the team just to get a lol kill with a fish?
This is the main concern with regards to weapons and unlocks that can unbalance gameplay and take us out of focus. I’m not been negative it’s cool to get new stuff in a game and competitive players should not panic as Valve knows that the comeptitive gamers can always adjust to rules that suit our needs but like Dignitas/dunc said “I don’t like the path they’ve taken our game down recently, but they’re businessmen, not competitive gamers. They need to attract new public players, because that’s how they make their money – there’s no subscription fees”
And that’s about it so for now I will suggest to introduce ( Vanilla + Medlocks ) at TF2CSA compts, pickups and clannies. For our local community a rule set like ESL have at the moment ( Vanilla + Medlocks ) only to be used at competitive play is a good move but I’ll see from the community feedback to discuss this matter properly.
Please guys some feedback…
