Would love to play, but unfortunately Competitive Mode just isn't very good, good sir. Would be jolly good if they improved it.

DX8 really needs to die and be removed from the Source Engine. We need to get its usage numbers down so that Valve is more comfortable with removing it and improving DX9.

Robin WalkerWe're also working on bringing over a variety of engine improvements from Left 4 Dead into the TF2 engine, but it won't be a wholesale replacement of the engine. This means we'll get some of L4D's performance improvements, like the better multicore support, but not all of them. For example, we can't bring over some improvements without dropping support for DX8, which we're not prepared to do.

Also, genuinely curious... Doesn't CS:GO also enforce dxlevel and config? Why is it not a problem there?

for most modern systems, DX8 is comparable if not worse
remember, it's always best to benchmark your configs to see if you're actually gaining value in using certain setups versus others
and if you're one of the people that uses DX8 for aesthetic/particle reasons you can always use configs for that too

cs:go is a much newer game with higher requirement and it's never had dx8

A HD 6850 that i got off of craigslist 2 years ago for $15 sees almost no difference in frame rates in TF2 when switching between DX8 and 9.

What GPU? What config? With mastercoms experimental on a R7 2700X and HD 6850 @ 1080p i don't really see any difference between DX 8 and 9 in frame rates. The difference is like 224 to 217 fps.

dx8 just looks better imo

Dropping DX8 support would allow for DX9 to have better performance.

wonderlandcs:go is a much newer game with higher requirement and it's never had dx8

Why can't TF2 also have higher requirements? Is it because we want to hold it back? "New" game based on its initial release date doesn't mean anything with so many updates that you can ship to games nowadays.

its just not worth it in a game of this age.

you will lose more players who have toasters and need dx8 than you will gain by getting a small boost in dx9

Believing in a Robin Walker quote from 2008 is delusional. Not even game breaking bugs get fixed and I wouldn't trust those shit heads at Valve to get it right.

DX9 looks like garbo compared to DX8 (even with all the settings to try and make them look alike)

The biggest joke regarding Valve locking down customization in competitive matchmaking is that you can still do shit like sound cheat, shadow cheat, and remove your sniper scope.
