My life has been way better and I have become way more productive. I took about a two month break, and now I play occasionally on weekends.

I end up getting more stuff done and enjoy myself more.

I've been focusing more on my photography, which I do some professional work with.

hellbent, serious question, how do you manage to somehow internalize all this delusion from a team decision that was made in an off-season like five or so months ago? You "apologized" to me via Steam (for whatever reason) and also asked for your LFT to be deleted when it turned out you actually were completely in the wrong in the aftermath of that drama you unfolded, yet somehow you still make asinine posts like this and expect people to take you seriously. It feels very uncharacteristic of myself to make posts like this out in the open, but I honestly hate when bullshit is spread. Even more so when said spreading is done by someone who somehow played on the same team as me.

I think something that you fail to understand, perhaps for the better of your own mental health and to not internally crumble, is that you were cut for a very good reason. You are not very good at roamer, hellbent. You probably never will be with your current mindset either, though I'm certain you refuse to believe that and instead offset the fact with your excessive pride in being a college student (congratulations!) and belief that everyone but yourself is the problem. You somehow managed to transform yourself from a player with great potential due to having some incredible mechanical skills to a player that could just never find their groove on seemingly any team. To top if all off, you actually are an annoying fuck. I don't think there was a single person on -bird noises- who could stand playing with you for another season after S21 because of how painful it was to try to have a conversation with you in mumble (even if unrelated to the game). It's not very fun having to deal with someone who's go-to for conversation is how hard an assignment they are doing is or only idea of breaking a small silence or, god forbid, interrupt someone is making annoying noises and acting like a small child. You just ultimately ended up being someone that nobody on the team wanted to have as a teammate, not just me.

It actually amazes me how low you managed to sink in order to reinforce your vendetta against me. You know what would have been a great way to really get back at me? Beating me. Doing well on another team. Improving as a player and working on any issues people talked to you about. Somehow you managed to ignore all those great options and chose to...

1) Attempt to FFL to us in order to give us less rounds in case our record tied with EVL's last season (off a suggestion from Skye, peculiarly enough)
2) Spread around lies such as linkuser or boomer being cut. Linkuser left because of things he had to take care of pertaining to his family that were very serious. Boomer left because he had a promotion at his job and could not make time to scrim. indust was probably the only person in the history of that team that was cut for a bad reason, but even then he really didn't have any motivation to play more TF2 and likely would have had to bail due to OW eventually. train was a great player who just had a really, really weird emotional spot (maybe it was the whole transition from IM to Invite and getting stomped in scrims against top teams) that ended up with him getting axed.
3) Not get a single win in invite outside of -bird noises-. I see you got your first win in like six months as of earlier this month in Open (https://play.esea.net/index.php?s=stats&d=match&id=7902369), so my hearty congratulations to you.

In all seriousness though, grow up, hellbent. The only injustice in all this is you somehow manage to spark things like this again 5-6 months later in some hilarious attempt to try and bash me.

1. yes, i have more free time, especially in the evenings to be open for short notice plans and generally less pressured with having to play when i dont want to.
2. sometimes i get bored and come back to play (especially when you can do contracts which are fun to casually do with friends) but i rarely played outside of the halloween event.
3. not really hobbies that i spend my time on, rather learning for uni and generally socializing with friends and spend time with my family.
4. i started playing less and less due to incoming finals and uni, lost my interest in playing casual alone and there were not alot of people enjoying casual so i just left it.
5. theres lots of non tf2 related stuff in here and im actually not really reading stuff about tf2 anymore. you know the community and im rather staying in here with people i "know" than going to different forums with unknown pepole just because their name fits the topic im looking for.

i doubt that ill ever really come back to tf2, especially in a competitive sense but i do still enjoy casually playing it sometimes.

tbh even if hellbent is/was an ass I can sympathize with vand making him quit cause seeing other people get mad at tf2 all the time made me realize how much of a dick I was being when I was getting mad at tf2. I realize I have a hard time not being that person and trying to play w/ other people when I couldn't take the game seriously w/o being a dick is pretty unfair to my teammates who want to improve

Has your life improved since you quit?

I find the less I play tf2 the more time I spend on other hobbies that are probably just as pointless. Reading wikipedia articles about biology or lifting weights is no more or less fulfilling than TF2. The game never interfered with my school work and my social life was always shit because i'm ---------

Do you get bored

I got a job that tends to eat up most of the time I used to spend playing TF2 and I get home around 8 or 9 most days then go to bed. I like my job and I like what I do when I'm not playing tf2. The only time I play TF2 is when I'm bored, but I don't think quitting tf2 has made my life more boring. TF2 was always a symptom of having nothing to do, not a cause

Did you have some other

Sort of. The gym isn't something you can do for 20+ hours a week like tf2 obviously. But I think I stopped playing tf2 seriously because I enjoyed other things more than tf2 even if I wouldn't call them hobbies

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2

most people in the community don't like me and trying to repair my reputation to play more tf2 didnt seem worthwhile. I enjoy playing tf2 casually or semi-casually on a low effort team, but putting in 20+ hours a week of serious practice didn't provide me with the enjoyment that it did when I was 17 and could mge for 8 hours straight

why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play

Has your life improved since you quit?
Eh, not much really. I quit because the game's optimization was going to shit, and the stuff needed to run it at a decent level was going higher and higher, so until I can buy some new parts, I'm on an indefinite hold. For my life, haven't really noticed much of a difference, probably hanging out less with the dudes I met through tf2 which makes me sad :(.

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?
I still itch to play comp 6s, watching streams and matches regularly to fill the void it's left ever since I've stopped
playing. I do get the urge to load up the game, but then I remember the bad frames and decide against it. Soon I will return.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
I've always been a fan of writing and singing, so I've spent a bit more time doing those I suppose. I've also started watching all the big boy TV shows, getting into the walking dead, breaking bad etc that I never finished watching so it's nice to have the free time to no life those lmao.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
Bad frames. Just, I was able to the run the game at like a solid 60 frames at a point, but I have no clue what happened over the years. I never thought I'd spend over 3K hours on a videogame but here we are sitting at 3,758 hrs on record.

Yes, I have more time to devote to other pursuits now that I don't have scrims+matches 3-4 nights a week.

I play jump/surf maps from time to time when I see a cool one on TF2RJ but I don't pug or pub anymore, Daf probably has more hours/2 weeks than i do at this point.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
I work full-time now and it's hard to find the motivation to play videogames for four hours straight. I find more enjoyment in socializing IRL or just relaxing after work rather than tearing my hair out over my idiotic plays.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
To get to the next level i was going to have to put in waaaaaay more time than I had available for a videogame that was starting to feel like a time sink. We were getting on each other in mumble more than was enjoyable and mostly I just lost the motivation / desire to grind. Combined with IRL responsibilities and life decisions it just didn't make sense to put effort into TF2 when I could be advancing myself in areas that will help me in my career / the long run. I still hang out in discord/mumble from time to time with some friends I've made during my time in TF2 though.

Vand...

Of course I apologized I said mean things in the heat of the moment that I didn't mean. Everything after that was an attempt to reconcile so I could play again. I understand and accept what happened I just don't think it's a very good way to go about things. It was against you and not everyone else on the team mostly because you were the leader. I think the same of voll, but indust and linkuser weren't very involved in the team and sigh usually doesn't care. I didn't really speak to them so I didn't have any kind of strong friendship I had with you 2.

There is no spark, there isn't a conflict. It ended a long time ago. Look at the title of the thread, I already quit. I don't want to argue anymore, I just want to make a point on the usual mindset people go into games with and you're a good example of that and have had more success so who am I to judge. I'm sad to see that you really did hate me though, I thought we were pretty chill during; we hung out and talked a lot. Maybe it was just because I was on the team though.

1) I thought of it yes, and I could've very well did it easily. I just didnt have to show up seeing as that team only had 6 paid and I knew it was dead at the end of the season. But I didnt because that's pretty dirty.
2) I know that linkuser was cut, he just agreed to it so he technically 'left'. Iunno about boomer I probably shouldnt have mentioned him.
3) Ya congratulations. I joined the open team because a friend asked me to play and paid everything because they couldnt get 6. I didn't want to play. After that I was offered a spot on 8K, a team I ALWAYS wanted to play with but declined. The teams with the bugs died really quickly, I'm not sure why they didn't do better.

1. My life has improved, but not because of anything having to do with quitting tf2.
2. I don't really have the urge to come back to tf2, every once in a while I'll think about all of the good things about the game, and how it definitely was my favorite game, and I still think that it's a really good game, but I don't really want to play it again.
3. I did have other hobbies, but mostly I just moved on to different games.
4. I left around the time valve initially nerfed demo's stickies. The updates valve pushed out were part of the reason I quit, but mostly I just quit because of the community.
5.I don't browse tf.tv often, but yesterday at lunch I was hanging out with somebody I used to play tf2 with and we started talking about it so I checked out tftv to see if there was anything new.

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
i attempted suicide earlier and i decided after i got out of inpatient that it was distracting me from focusing on myself too much; it took away from opportunities i had to actually enjoy my life

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?
i still have friends in the community i talk to and i think its interesting to see where the game going, because i do enjoy it even if i dont think its good for me

Honestly yes, I've been doing pretty well in school and am being told ill probably get into grad school

I stopped having fun playing any multiplayer game and dont socialize much so boredom is my main issue atm

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?

School/work i guess

Has your life improved since you quit?
Yes, but TF2 wasn't directly the cause. I decided to make several changes in life, and stopping TF2 was a part of that.

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?
I still play on pubs/casual/DM/MGE, and even backup on teams, but otherwise, not particularly. I would consider being a starter depending on the team, but I really doubt that kind of team will ever appear again. I'd definitely consider it. It's just that in my life, currently, TF2 doesn't align with my own goals.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
Yes, very much. This is where I honestly might consider that I regret my time in TF2. I've always been a multi-level musician (production, violinist, etc.) since before I played video games, but I never truly pushed it until recently (i.e. after I stopped sinking time into TF2). Looking back, if I had a choice, I would highly consider replacing my hours in TF2 with hours in music. But, I think I ultimately don't regret it. I've gotten a lot out of playing this game, and I've picked up skills I otherwise wouldn't have had from being a part of production. Not to mention how many cool (and uncool) people I've met through it. It's a neat experience to meet and hang out with all the different kinds of people who play this game.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
Being in the west coast absolutely sucks for TF2. No doubt. Scrim times are super inconvenient, AND I have a full time career. Playing the game super seriously takes up a lot of time that I would rather put to something else, now.

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?
People I've met still post here. I also intentionally limit how much social media and related stuff I read, so this is just among one of those. I'm not super active anymore but the part that I am doesn't take that much time (or is super enjoyable like LANs). Also, someone has to throw out the garbage into the Dumpster.

Yes, but TF2 wasn't directly the cause. I decided to make several changes in life, and stopping TF2 was a part of that.

[b]Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?[/b]
I still play on pubs/casual/DM/MGE, and even backup on teams, but otherwise, not particularly. I would consider being a starter depending on the team, but I really doubt that kind of team will ever appear again. I'd definitely consider it. It's just that in my life, currently, TF2 doesn't align with my own goals.

[b]Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?[/b]
Yes, very much. This is where I honestly might consider that I regret my time in TF2. I've always been a multi-level musician (production, violinist, etc.) since before I played video games, but I never truly pushed it until recently (i.e. after I stopped sinking time into TF2). Looking back, if I had a choice, I would highly consider replacing my hours in TF2 with hours in music. But, I think I ultimately don't regret it. I've gotten a lot out of playing this game, and I've picked up skills I otherwise wouldn't have had from being a part of production. Not to mention how many cool (and uncool) people I've met through it. It's a neat experience to meet and hang out with all the different kinds of people who play this game.

[b]What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?[/b]
Being in the west coast absolutely sucks for TF2. No doubt. Scrim times are super inconvenient, AND I have a full time career. Playing the game super seriously takes up a lot of time that I would rather put to something else, now.

[b]And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?[/b]
People I've met still post here. I also intentionally limit how much social media and related stuff I read, so this is just among one of those. I'm not super active anymore but the part that I am doesn't take that much time (or is super enjoyable like LANs). Also, someone has to throw out the garbage into the Dumpster.

Has your life improved since you quit?

Sort of. College classes have been keeping me very busy but the little free time that I have can't (and won't unfortunately) be spent entirely on tf2. Thankfully my roommates adopted a puppy so whenever I have time I try and play with him a little bit. His name is Wizard but I call him Wizzy because of the similarity to the smash player Wizzrobe, who also goes by the nickname "Wizzy".

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?

For some reason I've gotten a weird itch for working on huds. Even before I had to stop playing I tried maintaining my own edit of another hud but I just didn't like it after a while. I do really want to maintain a hud in the future though, but I'm unsure of what I'd want to maintain. It'd probably be something that Hypnotize has already updated so the poor guy doesn't have to go about updating 20+ huds when a major update comes out. That being said I've really enjoyed what it has taught me and considering I'm looking into a telecommunications degree, having some knowledge of ui design could really help me land a cool job in the future.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?

Last year I didn't really have much to do outside of a few things such as ultimate Frisbee and weightlifting. I'm a big guy with not the best knees so running a lot was a bit of a struggle for me. I also didn't have enough inspiration to go to the gym everyday so that basically left me with a lot of free time and outside of homework and not a lot of inspiration to do much else.

However now that I'm at the main campus within my college I have a lot more things to do, such as going to college football games on the weekends and going to parties within my apartment complex that I'm in. But even with those things I'm still a decently quiet guy irl. I enjoy time to myself but complete isolation is utterly awful.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?

The fact that I had to pull really good grades this semester to stay at my university, and something odd has happened with my computer that it can't/won't recognize when an Ethernet jack is connected. I'm going to try a new cable to see if that's the issue since I've been doing at least 5 different things with no success.

And while it wasn't close to the reason why I decided to stop playing, looking back I realize that I've pretty much been on mediocre teams my entire time playing competitively. Without a doubt the best team that I was on was a team that I got cut from halfway during the season, and I completely understand their decision for it. I was getting shit frames and was having a very tough time dealing with the switch from 60+ frames to ~30 frames. There was just so much that was getting changed for me that I was consistently struggling with confidence in myself.

Also depression was a frequent visitor but given that I was at a tiny college campus where half of the people that lived there regularly left on the weekends made it hard to find inspiration to keep going a lot of the time. Hopefully if I can get the connection issues fixed soon, I can maybe play again, but I'd probably focus a lot on overwatch. My school has its own overwatch team and I think it'd be super cool to at least play a little to get a taste of what something different is like. But with that being said I'd really like to go to the eSports Arena LAN in January of next year to get a true tf2 LAN experience. I've also never gotten to play on a 144hz monitor so that would be really cool to experience. Also I could possibly meet some new friends while I'm there, so it would be super sick regardless.

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?

I enjoy keeping up with some of the things that are happening, even though it seems like with time more things end up getting messed up with every update. All that I can hope for this game is that the tf team admits that things aren't going as well as they could be, and instead start a direct line of contact to the people that play the game so much.

Has your life improved since you quit?
Yes, I have way more fun in OW with working matchmaking that mirrors the competitive scene.

Do I ever feel the urge to come back?
No, I left of a pretty sour note but I'm still fine with the fact ive played the game for 5 years since I was 12.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
Nope, more vid games for me.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
Game isnt nearly as fun as it was before for me, and the recent updates do not bode well and I have lots of frustration directed towards valve because if they decided to support the game 2/3 years ago it would be great.

1) Yeah I don't feel angry or tilted at all time anymore and I'm starting to play other games that I enjoy more like Quake, Melee, Catching up on some old Zeldas and playing sports.
2) I may have quit but I do get urges to play and I do, but for the most part I just mute other players I have a history with(everyone) and it's fun. I honestly just want a case to sell for 16 bucks and buy some cheap 15 buck game lol.
3) I'm a pretty good writer and I recently joined my school's newspaper and I'm an editor atm, but I also enjoy eating but let's be real, who doesn't?
4)I decided to take a break or quit(still haven't decided) because I really don't see TF2 ever helping me in the long run. It's super hard to get anywhere with the way Valve is treating the game and the recent decline in players and incline in people leaving for OW. I don't think OW is even that fun tbh, it tilts me more than TF2.
5) I keep up with recent events in ESEA and my other thing I love to do, troll and shitpost. It's like having a 2nd Instagram or twitter to just post retarded shit and not give a damn. Plus I like to give my opinion so that's a plus. And looking in the LFT thread and giving people bumps that deserve them.

Has your life improved since you quit?
Not really it's just as shit as it's always been I just play more Quake and guitar and less TF2.

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?
I haven't played for like a week and I have 0 interest in playing until next season at the earliest if I can play on a team with the few gamers I like. Assuming they're all able to play.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
I play lots of guitar and listen to lots of music. Work doesn't really count as a hobby but getting another job made me realize that spending my limited amount of free time playing TF2 wasn't a good investment.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
I couldn't find a team with gamers I liked to play with (most of this probably has to do with my attitude and the fact that I've only ever genuinely enjoyed playing with like 3 gamers 100% of the time I played with them). All I'd do was DM and Mixchamp and jump maps because I didn't have a team and still wanted to practice but it got really old after about 2 or 3 weeks and I didn't feel the need to play anymore. I also got a job again and quit being a lazy piece of shit.

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?
I like this community and the majority of them are wonderful people/memers and I love TF2 I just have no interest in playing it. I also enjoy watching streams sometimes.

Has your life improved since you quit?
Both yes and no. In some ways I got better, I'm exercising more and working. I've definitely become less social though, I don't see friends for months. It definitely feels a lot lonelier.

Do I ever feel the urge to come back?
Sometimes, usually after watching events and such. But a lot of games have been starting to give me motion sickness that I didn't have before, which pretty much eliminates playing most classes.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
I started drawing a bit more, mostly personal projects and some event content. I also put more time into my aquarium hobby, now I work in my local aquarium store part time until I find a full-time art career.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
At the point in my life where I quit playing, I entering the deepest low of my depression. There were less and less things I was enjoying and I felt like I had to cut some activities in order to direct my energy to one thing, which was finishing school. Also I did not have that competitive drive that helps when playing on teams, and with living on the West coast scrim times were always cutting into time I would spend with family and friends.

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?
I still like to read about teams and events, and I do enjoy watching casts.

Has your life improved since you quit?
I guess? I'm not forcing myself to play a game I wasn't really having fun with anymore and decided to play other games with my friends outside of this community.

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?
Haven't touched TF2 in two years, and anytime I think I might want to play it again I watch a stream of it or something and am quickly reminded why I quit.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?
I still play games, just not TF2. I played Dota 2 for about two years, sometimes I'll play a game or two every few months. I tried OW for two months and got tired of it. I like Rainbow Six Siege casually, sometimes play fighting games, and I'm playing a lot of the good singleplayer games I missed out on during the 7 years I played TF2. Also I have a good gaming PC now so I can actually play modern games too.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
The game wasn't fun in pubs for me, and most of my friends in the comp community already had teams or were at a higher skill level than me and I didn't really click well with most people that WERE at my skill level at the time.

tonyswedey1) Yeah I don't feel angry or tilted at all time anymore and I'm starting to play other games that I enjoy more like Quake, Melee, Catching up on some old Zeldas and playing sports.
2) I may have quit but I do get urges to play and I do, but for the most part I just mute other players I have a history with(everyone) and it's fun. I honestly just want a case to sell for 16 bucks and buy some cheap 15 buck game lol.
3) I'm a pretty good writer and I recently joined my school's newspaper and I'm an editor atm, but I also enjoy eating but let's be real, who doesn't?
4)I decided to take a break or quit(still haven't decided) because I really don't see TF2 ever helping me in the long run. It's super hard to get anywhere with the way Valve is treating the game and the recent decline in players and incline in people leaving for OW. I don't think OW is even that fun tbh, it tilts me more than TF2.
5) I keep up with recent events in ESEA and my other thing I love to do, troll and shitpost. It's like having a 2nd Instagram or twitter to just post retarded shit and not give a damn. Plus I like to give my opinion so that's a plus. And looking in the LFT thread and giving people bumps that deserve them.

u literally just got here lmao

Has your life improved since you quit?

yeah, my social life got a lot better where i can go hang w friends and just do whatever i want without a video game schedule lol

Do you get bored enough to feel the urge to come back to TF2 often, or are you satisfied enough with where you are (or dissatisfied enough with TF2 when you left) to not even consider it?

i do need more stuff to do so i can procrastinate but i don't mind not playing tf2

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?

i took up some extracurriculars and i really enjoy those, met some really cool people

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?

vac banned, realized there wasn't a point in pretending to be good

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?

im gay & i like men

It's a lot different. I kind of like it personally.

I'm a lot busier now with work and don't feel like I'd have the time to play as much as I'd need to.

Did you have some other, non-videogame hobby to spend your time on, or did you exit into the world with no clear plans for what to do next?

I finished school and got a job.

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?

Well I drifted away at first when all my close friends quit the game. I kept playing on some random teams for a few seasons and then stopped really wanting to.

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?

I love memes and circlejerks.

Yes, but with a lot more stress.

I still like playing TF2 occasionally and I do still have the urge to play. I've just significantly cut the time I play TF2. On the plus side I play more CSGO with some old high school friends now which has been alot of fun.

[redacted]

What was the main reason that you decided to quit TF2?
Not enough time, tired of looking for a team with players I could actually mesh with.

And, of course, why do you browse a forum for a game you no longer play?
Mostly so I can help nerds get more FPS, and keep up on what's going on in Invite.
