my older brother kept showing me meet the team videos when we were younger and our parents wouldn't let us buy tf2 because it was an online transaction

then it went f2p and he didn't really like it as opposed to me

Back in 2009 or 2010 my sister was encouraged by her online friends to play TF2. We shared an account. Through association I built a love for the game, even though I never took it very seriously in those early years. I was a frequenter of idle/trade servers for like 5 years until I started to play the official gamemodes more consistently. Through the acquired skill of pubs and various mge/dueling servers I eventually got picked up by some players in the valve official servers. Late middle school/early high school years were pivotal for me in competitive. I made a few friends but most of them have moved to other things

had been sick for two weeks non stop at home and finished all the games I had back then, figured I'd try out whatever was free on Steam and could run on my mom's laptop, this game looked ok, thought it would keep me occupied for a couple days and I'd forget about it upon returning to school. here we are 8 years later

for comp I just randomly got asked in an upward pub if I was interested in playing comp by a guy who'd seen me hit a baby airshot and suddenly realized I was the chosen one for his UGC Steel team. he wasn't wrong.

Got introduced into tf2 through steam when I couldn’t play on my xbox for a bit, then got into comp tf2 through nislt aka siN from his frag clip of the day series.

Can't remember how but I saw the Fresh Meat tournament advertised.

I was aimlessly spamming chat in a process pub asking if anyone wanted to play. As it happened, Jimb0t was in that pub. He pretty much laughed in my face when I asked him if he fancied being on my team (i think he was in high or some shit which apparently is a bit better than fresh meat), but kindly offered to coach us, as did Cider.

Shortly after, a few of us went to whatever I series was the one where B4nny came and played soldier for an EU team. We got absolutely diddled by pretty much every team and got like 2 rounds total. Our first game in the open bracket was against Zen and Dr Phil for some reason. Overall it was good shit and people we met were cool so I kept on playing.

I saw the minecraft tf2 mod but I couldn't figure out how to play tf2 because I thought all videogames had to be torrented. Later in high school a friend was a mod on lazy purple's friendly servers and taught me how steam works. I was a friendly for like a year and then i played exclusively on a christian community server.

Some dude called linkuser would come by and wipe the floor with everyone so i snooped around on his profile and figured out theres this thing called UGC. valve eventually killed community servers so i figured I might as well do comp

Used to watch my dad play games since I was able to walk (usually sof2 and ut2004) then remember one night him and a few of his old clan mates played this new game TF2. Remember clear as day him playing spy on gravel pit missing a sap on a sentry then dying to said sentry and him drop kicking the nearest object to him which just so happened to be a 3/4 full glass bottle which ended in him having several stitches.

Fast forward 3-4 years I get my first pc I play nothing but orange and prophunt for 500 hours then I find mge and play my dad he then for the next month beats me every single time. A few weeks after my dad gets bored of playing me (beating me) I meet this guy called gabaa who tells me about etf2l and yeah the rest is history.

Just after the last season I played with ascent I tell my dad I won best player/scout/ofclasser and for the first time in about 6-7 years my dad plays mge with me. I finally beat him

my older brother cosplayed as the Heavy in some con around 2014 and some time later when searching for a new game to play, that came to mind and gave it a try

started comp prob because I made some friends and saw they played in pw protected servers, so I started asking around until some Chileans brought me to they HL lobbies, and discovered MGE also by that time. my pubber spark didn't last too long, I always played with a natural competitive focus, and started tryharding pugs at around 700hrs

My father got the orange box for his birthday and I just liked the game from the first time I played. It was also one of the few fps I was allowed to play. I have no idea how I found out about competitive tf2, probably through tf2mid.cz.

played The Orange Box when it came out, then a year or two later asked my parents for a PC and bought TF2 with it.

Played PC only because I looked up videos on how to play, found OMFGNinja's videos and saw it was way smoother and he was doing such cool stuff as spy at the time. My 2nd day browsing the community server list, I found a couple of guys in cp_gravelpit alone that had the XLR8 tag on; I joined and wanted to ask how to play. I mentioned I saw their tags in his videos and that's what drew me in. They picked me up as soldier after playing with them enough and then I cemented my future to being a fucking idiot online.

i played tfc when i was 8 years old. tf2 came out when i was 14. i pubstomped for a couple months. a fellow tryhard pubstomper introduced me to #tf2.gather.us and i started pugging everyday. i enjoyed 6v6 waaaaay more than pubbing and never wanted to pub again so i practiced a shit ton.

i tried finding a team but it was hard to find a team where i felt like the players were at my level. i did not have any positive influences irl so being a 15 year old immature troll with decent dm hindered my networking abilities.

i matured up a little bit and eventually found a team. we won cevo-a without dropping a single map, but it wasn't a big deal at the time since many pros were transitioning from cevo-p to esea-i. my team captain aka tragic kicked me off the team for trolling him after a scrim.

then i played as a backup for many open and im teams throughout the rest of my career since i was doing terrible at school. i only played 3 full seasons as a starter in the 7 years that i played tf2 competitively, but i played a SHIT TON of pugs.

im very thankful for the experience that this community has given me even though i was initially a shithead. i learned how to work with others even though i often had urges to be a dumbass. it taught me the importance of having a good mentality, patience and discipline when it comes to trying to improve at irl stuff, something that i could not learn outside of tf2 due to my life situation. im kinda going off topic here but just wanted to show my appreciation for the game and the community.
