I am here to show you what I do every day. Kill tiny men.
Team Fortress 2 is a team based multiplayer FPS developed and maintained by Valve. The best resource for questions pertaining to one of the nine classes is either asking in game or TF2 WIKI DOT NET
. They have everything from what damage each weapon does to (sometimes outdated) HOW TO PLAY VIDEOS
These are where you can join my killing time.
How to add a server:
Before you start TF2, right click Steam in your toolbar and click on Servers. Go to the Favorites tab, click Add a Server, and type in the IP. Next time you launch TF2, go to the Favorites tab and select one of the servers that has people in it, type in the password (wang), and you should be good to go. Also make sure "Show map list" is unchecked in the bottom left. It makes finding servers stupid as hell.
Hyperbolic Drama Chamber
Normal server with sourcemod for votes. Recently has had lag problems.
Regular vanilla server. No votes. Significantly less lag. It's a trade off.
House of Non-Conformity
PMAvers picks the good from the bad so we can enjoy the maps that matter.

There is no real PA TF2 Steam Group. The HoNC has a Honc Night group that occasionally announces a custom map night, but that's about it. To get involved and meet people post here and add the servers to your favorites and hop on.

Meet The Babies:
Meet The Scout
The Scout is tiniest of tiny babies. He jumps around like a.. thing that jumps around a lot and he loves to put his balls in our faces.
Meet The Soldier
This man I like. He enjoys killing time almost as much as I do. He jumps around too but does it in a much more manly way.
Meet The Pyro
We can never understand a word this guy says. At least, we think it's a guy. Medic told me a rumor that was going around. He / she loves to burn things.
Meet The Demoman
Always drunk. He enjoys blowing things up in a number of ways. Did I mention he is always drunk?
Meet The Heavy
The best of the team. No offense can succeed without me. Basically, I am awesome.
Meet The Engineer
A credit to the team. Helps me reach the killing faster and provides stuff for me to destroy.
Meet The Sniper
I wish my head was smaller.
Meet The Spy
My back hates this guy. Loves to cloak and disguise and piss me off.
Meet The Medic
I love the Medic. He is the reason most of us stay alive long enough to kill anyone.
In this mode my team has to push this little cart from checkpoint to checkpoint or stop pitiful other team from doing the same. If the cart reaches the final destination then we win.
In this mode my team has to capture key areas around the map until they fall under our control or stop awful other team from doing the same. When all points are captured then it is over.
In this mode my team has to capture dreadful other teams intelligence while preventing them from doing the same. The usual number of captures is 3.
In this mode my team has to kill terrible other team and stop them from killing us. 2 round wins in a row and teams are scrambled. If that happens then worst team becomes best team because I am on it. After a period of time a neutral capture point becomes available. When captured this ends the round.
