The year is now mid 2021. the remnants of a once great game are now in peaces.
Slice Rogue is now an admin of every pug group in existence and he plays only demo.
there are no fat kids anymore, its first 12 to arrive. The medics are chosen randomly and if you dodge med, you get banned until you go through purgatory. Now the mumbles that all the best players choose to pug in are pay to play, subscription only.
Newbie mixes is a relic of things past, only the oldest players remember it and it's only folk lore. nobody remembers who really made tragic servers, and all of the servers now are being permanently dossed.
TF2 lobby has been remade another 5 times, and none of them are alive. Valve (quietly) have shown that they will not release another update to the game, unless it is a cosmetic one.
All the shit posters have been exiled from the community for past things that they have done. The forums have been become an elitist cesspool. where anyone who is new to the community is told to stay away essentially. The only Lans are held at public businesses on touch pad laptops. Rocket-pipe-scatter-god-king-scientist has become considered to be the best player in the world by multiple sources but is known mostly among the tf2 trader community as the most successful tf2 trader in history.
The community is currently looking for a Savior, one who can bring back the nostalgia of the good old days, back when soldiers could use the shotgun, back when scout didn't carry around their med at scout speed. The past where demos stickies where not Nerfed, and finally when the medic's crossbow didn't reload while holstered.
Will this messiah be you?
