TF2 From An Outsider's Perspective

2021.10.21 01:40 ScienceManTony TF2 From An Outsider's Perspective

My biggest concern with games is how good it is. I know that's extremely subjective and a game I think sucks might be your favorite and vice-versa, but reviews are often pretty indicative of a game's quality.
A month ago I finally decided to purchase the Orange Box (Don't ask me why I didn't buy it earlier, I don't know either). I mostly play single player games, so I gravitated towards Portal and Half-Life, but TF2 was an afterthought. Then I see things like, "This game is the best FPS of the decade" and "The community is one of the most dedicated of any game". Seeing this, I obviously play "God's Gift to Man".
I queue up for a casual match and get sent to 2Fort (Haha funny map go brrrr) and pick spy because of course I would. I step out of spawn onto the battlements and instantly get sniped by a bot. I didn't know it was a bot at the time, because of the aforementioned no prior exposure to the game. Despite these moments, I still had fun that game being a useless noob spy, but that sniper shot bugged me. About 4 or 5 matches after that I join a match halfway through a Payload match of Upward. I see the scoreboard is full of nothing but a few single names and the killfeed is nothing but headshots. This was my first real experience with bot servers. I was upset, but I figured this was pretty uncommon and most servers weren't like that.
I was wrong. I was VERY VERY wrong.
Almost every casual match I played after that had bots. It got to the point where I tried to to a scientific survey but there were so many bots that a tally was pointless. Regardless, I still play almost daily because the actual players are great. You fuckers are some of the best people I've ever seen. TF2 memes really hit different. But those moments only happen on community servers.
What I'm trying to say is, from an outsider's perspective, this game is often unplayable. And being someone who refuses to play broken and unfinished games, TF2 is completely unacceptable in its current state. To me the only reason TF2 is still alive is that the community is so fucking dedicated, and I respect that, I really do. But now that there's DDoS attacks and lag bots invading Scream Fortress, I'm throwing in the towel. I'm probably still going to play this game, the community is too amazing, but I'm not playing on Valve servers anymore that's for fucking sure. Either that or maybe I'll try TF Classic. Whatever I do, my expectations about this game have been obliterated because TF2 is not playable.
If you want to comment how fucking stupid I am and how beating bots is a right of passage then, by all means, call me stupid. I want to hear genuine responses and civil discussions on the current state of the game because if this was under any other developer, the community response would be far more 'torch and pitchfork style.'

TL:DR - I'm a new player who has had nothing but negative experiences with this game because of bots and cheaters and I'm leaving the game for other games because of it.

2021.10.21 01:40 shiitpostmaloner Repeated ear infections

My toy poodle (2 year old female) who has been spayed has had an ear infection about a year ago which we took her to the vet for and was prescribed anti fungal liquid to be rubbed in which did the trick. Now, a year later, she is showing the same symptoms but less severely and I’m thinking it’s another ear infection. Is it worth waiting to see if it progresses further or just buying some anti fungal treatment online. Also we try to dry her as quick as possible after baths to reduce this from happening but it seems she’s found another way to get one. Any recommendations on prevention of ear infections?

This dog inevitably grabs something off the counter when left alone for more than 5 minutes. He even destroyed my new cookbook so non food items aren't safe either.

2021.10.21 01:40 Killer_queen475 Is Kira actually a murderer?

Yoshikage Kira is actually an innocent man and here’s why. First off Kira was not properly taught by his parents especially his dad who encouraged him and his bad behavior. Next Kira was led on by his environment and the people close to him as a kid. There are a lot more reasons why Kira isn’t a murderer but those are only two.
