5 do’s and don’ts for TF2 matchmaking
IRFaceRig Team Fortress 2 on Steam
The update, which Valve conducted beta testing for earlier this year, will add a ranked competitive mode to the game in addition to quickplay matchmaking with opportunities to rank up from titles like "Fresh Meat" all the way to "Death Merchant. In Competitive Mode, as Valve notes, "every win and every loss counts. It's a serious affair, at least more so than usual, and competitive mode won't simply be open to every single player who downloads the game until you tie your account with a phone number and purchase a special item to earn premium status. But as this is still Team Fortress 2 , one of the silliest multiplayer diversions out there, even the fact that you're playing for keeps sometimes is still a little chilled out. As it should be, since changing up the dynamic like this in a game that's always been about jumping online and wreaking some havoc with friends could be jarring if mishandled.
TF2 is getting competitive matchmaking
Remember the rumors of matchmaking in the works? A few months back a group of us event organizers and production staff began an email exchange with the TF2 team in an attempt to establish a more open channel of communication between the team and the competitive community. We were ultimately granted an opportunity to drop by and chat if we were in the neighborhood, so naturally we scrambled together a group of notable west-coasters myself, extine, mana, b4nny, Seagull to meet with the TF team.
Valve is really making good on their promise of significantly improved communication. Hope this is a trend and not a one-off. TLDR: still nothing for how the hell they're going to deal with the greatly increased power of GTX s, s, and in the not too distant future, RX s. The top post on "that other place with those weird aliens" is literally all about the fact that Valve needs to step their stuff up when it comes to actually taking advantage of people with high-performance systems. You can't just move that shit onto the GPU in most cases.
