I have been playing on the servers for many years (under the name of Marjorie Stewart Baxter) and was a life time sponsor. I feel I should post about why I feel the servers died. I know a fair few people will agree with me on this too. A few will not.
The UKCS TF2 servers were dead a long time before matchmaking… Most of this I am afraid was down to the silly plugins that stopped friends playing on the same teams… Yes, it stopped stacking but also was a lot less fun and people moved elsewhere. It is a real shame and the UKCS community disappeared shortly after this.
The servers also had some very heavy handed admins on them towards the end who allowed admin powers to become the better of them which was a real shame… UKCS was a great community back in the days (Kan, Xerxes and unspec) and indeed once you had played on them it was like a second home with many of hours enjoyed playing on the servers, especially dustbowl.
I made lots of friends (I won’t name them but you know who you are) most whom I have met in real life at Insomnia Gaming Festivals and had many LAN’s of fun. Most of these people including myself have moved across to Overwatch and continue to have good games while in Mumble. I have seen a few ex UKCS players on some other TF2 servers and no doubt for the times I get bored of Overwatch I will see some more.
It’s been fun and all good things come to an end… So long UKCS thanks for having me
