What if Team Fortress 2 was published by EA...

Postby alias on Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:18 pm

Someone posted this on the steamforums... And its good to show it because it will make you even more happy that valve made tf2.

Warning, the following images can couse traumatic events. Make sure you you put on your anti origin shield.

People who posted on the games official forums expecting EA to give them money for crates they got for free would have their accounts revoked so there could be some plus points. :P

SPUF are pretty much at the point where they want Valve to pay them to play a game you can get for free and has had a ridiculous level of support over the years.

For further reading on your typical SPUF poster I suggest the following article.

Would they block those b-awful Pinion ads? Also what would their policy be on listing your TF2 account in you last will and testament because Valve won't answer me on this one. Can I leave my collection of virtual silly hats and weapons to somebody to enjoy if I turn my toes up?

I would run hard away! Good post haha.

I still hope 1942 - 44 be a remake! Without EA involved, but unfortunatly DICE is since 2005 i believe in hands of EA. 1942 with expansions was really good.

I stopped taking SPUF seriously a while ago.
Like you say, these brats take everything for granted and just expect Valve to bow to them and jump at their command. They should really realize that Valve is one of the better ones out there and while their purpose is also to make money obviously, they're not nearly as crazy about it as EA.

Its only a small group that spams like hell and usualy ends up being banned.

Many dont post that often or post in topics which have a bit of sense. They want valve to do alot but dont expect it to happen. They only know that if there are enough complaints that valve is going to take care of it.

Sadly, pinion isnt such thing as those are considered a partner... Yet its the thing most flamed at currently.

Just wait another year. I'm sure Valve will introduce some pay to play DLC.

Well, they already did that partialy called mann up.

Valve mentioned before that every player should be able to do everything. they might not have the best experience due to servers something having poor configs or the most crappy system ever invented to compensate for server hosts (pinion comes to mind). But they still havent restricted the gameplay part. I can easily host an mvm game.

When valve would completely restrict 1 element of the game the community will be splitted up too much. And this in the end is a reason why a game dies fast. When everything is F2P and allows custom things to be added you can ensure it doesnt die out.
