I'm not aware of any North-African TF2 communities, I would assume everyone just plays on ETF2L, you could try doing that as well.
I suggest you start a recruitment post on ETF2L (log in, go to Team Admin, Recruitment, and fill the form) and start playing some lobbies on TF2Center.
82 ping is a bit bad but it's not the worst if it's consistent, you could get used to it.

Good luck

I played with 80 ping when I was starting out. If it's all that you're used to, you'll be fine. Maybe play a hitscan class (scout) instead of projectile classes (solly, demo), but if you're just playing to have fun, I wouldn't sacrifice picking one main over the other solely because of your connection.

in america most of the matches are held on mid west servers, and occasionally east coast servers. I live on the west coast (and I usually play soldier) so I have had more games than not on over 100 ping. It is challenging to get used to initially, but its not impossible. Ping advantage plays a big part in 1v1s, especially between projectile classes, but positioning and timing can still make you a valuable team member. Good luck man.

I would've linked playcomp.tf since it used to be a good resource for people new to this scene but it looks like the domain expired. Does anyone know who owned the site and if this being down is permanent?

Also since your profile sais that you're a spy main you might want to look out for the Highlander format, where teams consist of 9 players on each class. The more popular format 6v6 is usually played with 2 scouts, 2 soldiers, 1 demo and 1 medic on each team, you can obviously try that out as well but if you want to play spy, highlander might be better for you.

80 ping isn't really that great but I've seen plenty of other people play with a somewhat higher ping so it might be a little annoying but shouldn't be that big of a problem as long as you're used to it.

I guess you can check out tf2center.com and play some lobbies to try the different formats out, just be aware that the players joining those games are somewhat random so the quality of the games might be varying.

SnackI played with 80 ping when I was starting out. If it's all that you're used to, you'll be fine.

I would, personally having high ping made it impossible for me to enjoy playing soldier for 2 seasons in a row at any time, I always felt like I needed a break from being at a pretty considerable disadvantage compared to most players (especially vs scouts because of how much control they have over their movement).
even though I consider soldier more fun at it's core scout is at-least tolerable at higher pings.

82 ping isn’t too bad if you’re playing on eu servers.
There’s a few asian tf2ers who have managed to play at the top level of au prem with 100+ ping, playing as scout, such as aishou and teejay.
I believe hsr (another asian tf2er) has also played au prem pocket with 100+ ping.
Harder but not impossible.

Egyptian tf2 team that made it to div2 and harboured some talented players along the way (kos, Raymon, Josh). They were pinging probably similar to you and were absolute beasts

I swear I saw the real Mr.Dr.Venom in a lobby last week, real blast from the past.
