Hello, I've last played tf2 in September 2017 and I've recently wanted to start playing again after seeing this video by Funke and a few things caught my eyes like being able to play a casual match while being queued in competitive, and a few other things, but the problem is I haven't heard any news on TF2 since last september and I'm a tad bit outdated on info and I have a few other questions like:

Can I now play with dx81 in Official Comp? Were the viewmodel_fov restrictions removed?(Could not tell from the vid I noted above)

Whats the current best fps config for a mostly competitive player with a potato computer?

Oh and hows the unofficial tf2 comp scene right now?

WhiskerrrCan I now play with dx81 in Official Comp? Were the viewmodel_fov restrictions removed?(Could not tell from the vid I noted above)

The only changes that have been made were the addition of placement match/elo system that CSGO currently utilizes, and unlocking sniper scope ratio. The rest of the forced settings (DX9, viewmodel_fov 70, r_drawviewmodel 1, etc) are still very annoyingly in place.

recently MasterComfig has become one of the most popular sources of fps config/scripts with its relative ease of use and setup.

WhiskerrrOh and hows the unofficial tf2 comp scene right now?

ESEA has actually been doing okay the past 2 seasons. Last season we had no FFLs or team deaths in invite, as well as the return of a healthy intermediate team size and the largest open team pool in ESEA history, thanks to the removal of league fees from open (premium still needed). This season (which is currently in its second week) has seen a bit of a turnback as the prizepools are very poorly balanced among the divisions and encourage sandbagging, however there is still a healthy count of open and IM, and invite teams.

EssentialsTF has been running monthly tournaments with 1000$ prizepools in both EU and NA that have very underwhelming player draw due to long waits between matches and lack of a good tournament platform, which problems will be hopefully fixed in the changes to the june tournaments going onward.

RGB LAN 3 is scheduled for October so if you're looking for some lan action come join us!!

This is a bit of a derail but I'd argue that the biggest issue is really poor promotion of the cups causing most of the community to not be aware of the cups happening until like 3 days before the thing happens

Menachemalso according to the june monthly thread this month is gonna feature a new, good tournament platform and shorter waits between matches

these shorter waits are relying on people actually finishing their matches within 45 minutes which has been an issue in the past

It's already been stated, but I can't stress enough how bad in-game comp is compared with actual 3rd party 6v6 like tf2pl. Avoid like the plague until valve actually fixes it's glaring flaws.
