#18 #savetf2 article in pcgamer in TF2 General Discussion

I decided to just look at the numbers myself and I'm not sure where the author of the article got "68k in May" from. The average for Jan - May 2022 was around 90k. The average count in 2019 was 68k and has been steadily climbing ever since. But if we change the numbers to what they are:
= May with 90k average
+ June and July with 140k average
- Aug and Sept with 115k average

I didn't include October because of Scream Fortress and since we don't have November yet, it's hard to know if that slight increase in players is purely for the event or if some plan to stick around afterwards. Regardless, we can say there was a definite and consistent increase from May 2022 by at least 25k players. The biggest problem when talking about any of these numbers is that we still don't know how many of the numbers include bots, traders or idlers which always make it really, really hard to refer to Steam Charts when talking about if TF2 is thriving or dying.

TF2 could've gotten a boost because of an update around May that made it harder for bots. TF2 could've also gotten a boost because it was summer and school was out and those numbers were going to rise regardless of an update. Those numbers could also be because 11 new unusual effects were released in summer and a bunch of traders unleashed their idle bots so they could farm and trade for keys and unlock crates. It could be all three, I don't know.

Wild_Rumpus...was like a tweet from valve...

And apparently, that wasn't even a tweet done by someone on the TF2 team. Plus, there's TFClassic's response in trying to get the mod back up and they were unable to get anyone at Valve to respond to them after getting a random request-to-takedown that further confirms they're mostly just ignoring the game and probably it's community outside of workshop submissions.

I'm a bit confused by what the article is claiming. Is it trying to say that the #saveTF2 tag is somehow responsible for getting thousands of bots banned due to increase player awareness or something? Because it feels more like to me that the cheaters got bored and started dwindling in numbers on their own, not because of an increase in reports and moderation.

aieraQueue casual and let us know because I certainly am not gonna get my hopes up.

I queued up the last couple of weeks and pre-Scream Fortress, you would get maybe one or two bots every 8 - 10 minutes. During Scream Fortress. there's been a consistent bot playing Michael Jackson songs every 5 - 7 minutes.

RendoasThe way you're brushing people off and being a smartass when we're trying to hold someone accountable for hate speech directed at marginalized people is really disgusting and disappointing.

we are looking at very different threads if you think this thread is me vs. a group of people trying to have a real discussion. at most, it's three people with everyone else being just as smartass-y, memeing, or shitposting.

ReeroI also usually lead towards forgiving people who have shown to make an actual change, and giving them a second chance.

you might not think so, but obviously some heads in charge of ban appeals thought so considering they lifted a permaban-- something that isn't all that easy to convince RGL admins to do to begin with.

at a point you have to accept that not all the behind-the-scenes details are being told to you, and you'll probably never get them. the number one story here being told is "rgl match comms", because almost no one here interacts with hubida since he's kept to himself for a year and it's the only story people have right now. so the idea that he should be booted out via mob vote over an admin vote because he's a "danger" to a community he doesn't interact with is literal fearmongering.

Wild_Rumpusif you do care about the health of the community then you should be interested in rooting out the elements that make it unwelcoming and unsafe like transphobia, racism, pedophilia, etc.

believing in "no forgiveness" and perma-banning anyone you dislike is how you kill communities and create circlejerks. there are a crazy number of TF2 players who have been redeemed and welcomed back despite their language or past toxicity, quite a few of them in this very thread.

sandblastu say u dont care about the community

point out where i said this.

it's possible to not care about posts on a message board that still uses an upvote system and care about LANs and donating to prize pools, even if you think it's not.

springrollsThat's the absolute insane part to me; if for some god-forsaken reason I wanted to stan a pedo-adjacent individual who very recently went on an n-word laced tirade on a public website (with a dash of transphobia, most of which was targeted at a specific individual) I would not my real name attached especially if i have a job or was in school or some shit...

somehow i don't think my boss is going to care if dafartknocker69 from TFTV e-mailed them a link of this thread and RGL match comms.

RendoasShe's sticking her neck out for a guy who was unapologetically racist and transphobic in 4k. I don't think you need to catch fat people in the crossfire to have ammunition on this one.

that's just brody being brody

wonderoflif u put trash on a pedestal does that change what it is? but that's no longer where i stand. regardless, u are either a bad faith actor or you're only trying to stir the pot. ordinarily if i talk to u i'll either double down or take back what i said. i'll do neither and just say that you don't deserve responses from anyone beyond this one.

oh no i have been owned a frequent user of tftv will not respond to me anymore

i have truly been ostracized from the tf2 community
