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 They have everything from what damage each weapon does to (sometimes outdated) HOW TO PLAY VIDEOS.


Steam Forum : How To Archive - Thanks to TVs_Frank for providing the link.


Servers:

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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 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.

Misc. Questions:
QUESTION: Where did you get that steam signature image?
ANSWER: from http://steamcalculator.com where our forum friend Alabaster "Suds" Slim has done the great service of providing them to us.

QUESTION: How do I make my screenshots a decent format?
ANSWER: Enable developers console in your advanced settings and hit the ~ key. Then type "bind F5 jpeg" and hit enter.

QUESTION: Where do I get news pertaining to TF2?
ANSWER: Valve's TF2 Blog

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.
cp_dustbowl0213.jpg

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.
cp_dustbowl0214.jpg

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.
cp_dustbowl0215.jpg

Meet The Demoman

Always drunk. He enjoys blowing things up in a number of ways. Did I mention he is always drunk?
cp_dustbowl0216.jpg

Meet The Heavy

The best of the team. No offense can succeed without me. Basically, I am awesome.
cp_dustbowl0218.jpg

Meet The Engineer

A credit to the team. Helps me reach the killing faster and provides stuff for me to destroy.
cp_dustbowl0220.jpg

Meet The Sniper

I wish my head was smaller.
cp_dustbowl0221.jpg

Meet The Spy

My back hates this guy. Loves to cloak and disguise and piss me off.
cp_dustbowl0223.jpg

Meet The Medic

I love the Medic. He is the reason most of us stay alive long enough to kill anyone.
cp_dustbowl0224.jpg

Gametypes:

Payload

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.
pl_badwater0229.jpg

Capture Points

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.
cp_dustbowl0226.jpg

cp_dustbowl0227.jpg

Intelligence

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.
ctf_2fort0228.jpg

Arena

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.

    This is the perfect reason to talk more

    I'm playing on my bootcamped mac which for a long time was hilarious because I forgot to turn off the mic, which is built in. And I didn't even know.

    Let's just say - things - happened during a particularly casual game of gravel pit and let's just say - everyone on the server - heard.

    I sometimes "push-to-talk" when I'm making any sort of noise, just out of habit. You might catch parts of phone conversations, sneezing, coughing, farting, burping, and more!

    I'm sorry about all that, by the way.

    It seemingly went away for a time but then people reported it coming back. For myself it has only ever been jumpy stutter lag rather than full blown fire my gun to see bullets come out 5 seconds later.

    hahaha I do this sometimes, but the WORST THING IMAGINABLE, it's unspoken and should NEVER BE DONE BY ANY MAN, WOMAN, OR PRIEST.
