the301stspartanI don't see how any 2 invite players have similar personalities tbh.
Everyone is player B at the beginning. Player B could be good at the game with enough dedication and practiceThis is true for almost everyone who knows how to hold a mouse. I really don't see how out of 2 equally talented players starting in open, only the "more likeable" one will be able to improve and make his way to invite. Obviously you shouldn't be an asocial dick if you want to play a team game, but b4nny is living proof that you can make it to the top either way

The types of people who play TF2 are pretty limited idk what you're talking about. Slightly awkward 18-22 year old white guys make up a good 80-90% of the playerbase. Most people here are computer literate, laugh at ironic internet culture, and have a consistent sense of humor. If you enjoy TF2 but don't like memes, anime, or trannies you're not going to fit in well at all.

Unless you're going to argue that the only way to make it into invite is 100% independent work, you're gonna have to admit that the culture of the TF2 community is at least somewhat self-selective when it comes to who it chooses to support

What do you mean by independent? Tf2 is a team game. To make it into invite, you need a team of 6 people who are better at tf2 than the teams they play against in open and IM and nothing else.

Your tf2 demographics argument makes no sense to me.

Slightly awkward 18-22 year old white guys make up a good 80-90% of the playerbase.

Implying that if you are not 18-22, not awkward, or not white, you have a smaller chance of finding a team? Proof?

Most people here are computer literate

online community

Feel free to protest how hard it is for 60 year old aboriginal computer illiterates with no sense of humor to make invite but this does not make tf2 a circlejerk community.

>What do you mean by independent? Tf2 is a team game. To make it into invite, you need a team of 6 people who are better at tf2 than the teams they play against in open and IM and nothing else.

so then you'd agree that a player needs other players to improve correct? This would mean players who are more popular will have more opportunities to improve faster

>Implying that if you are not 18-22, not awkward, or not white, you have a smaller chance of finding a team? Proof?

Unless girls and old people just dont play TF2, the fact that there's only a handful of them in the 6s community seems odd. This could just be selection bias or smthn because older players can't commit to a team

>this does not make tf2 a circlejerk community

it does by definition actually. You can argue the degree, but until a player can make it into invite without speaking to other players or interacting with others, the game will always favor people who are more personable.

95% of the posts in this thread are actually popular opinions and/or people blatantly farming plusfrags

also no one really knows which opinions are popular and which aren't because the newer, mge-born generations has a set of opinions (badlands sucks, for instance) that are popular in that group but not in others

this is not my unpopular opinion btw (idk what that would be, all my opinions are prolly in between popular and unpopular to some extent except for my opinions about myself which are unpopular)

If that's your definition of circlejerk, every team game is a circle jerk and everything else is a circle jerk too, and tf2 being a circle jerk is so utterly unremarkable that I can't see why you would have bothered to write about it in this thread.

I prefer Reddit highlander scrubs to most of the people I end up playing against/talking to here. You have overenthusiastic people who spend half their day on the comp subreddit and on discords, writing novels based on 2 lobby experiences, and then some 4-year veteran scout who never uttered more words to anyone than "mid off pls" between keybinds.

HuckAnyone who complains about circlejerks in tf2 are probably just socially autistic and don't understand the concept of having friends

The problem is it's not about friendship. It's selective catering to people of influence at the off-chance you get to mix with them, only to add more people. Suddenly you're mixing several levels above you, do decent and just accept that you "got good" over the summer and the 20 new friends on your list isn't to do with it. This is the case in all games but 1v1 ones, sure but it's still stupid to imply it doesn't happen often.

kevShooshAlso, getting to high levels in TF2 is no longer about how good you are (to an extent) but rather who you know and what circlejerk you're in.
this is basically life though i can't really back this up

networking IS a skill

I played with some high/prem players +5 years ago, and returning to see all these blatantly hopeless people suddenly be in the top worries me. Sure they could've had an epiphany and busted their balls on DM 4 hours a day but I'm almost convinced they didn't.

Sucking it up to big boys to get places is heaps easier than becoming some sort of DM god. And even then, that just becomes your rep. "Oh yeah he kills shit good that's why he's high".

Weebs ironic or not are horrible. It's one of the most elitist communities within eSports in general and for people who watch shows about slice-of-life titty toddlers, they're incredibly aggressive and spiteful. You can shit talk any one fandom online but chances are they don't got shit on a meme'ing low-highlander anime avatar scout.

I hate hearing words like "retard" and "raped" used so casually in team comms.

Maybe I'm just getting triggered or whatever but some of my cousins have autism and a few of my close friends were sexually assaulted as kids. It just rubs me the wrong way to hear people throwing around stuff like that so lightly.
