In latest instances, Team Fortress 2 has seen a drought of latest content material and significant updates, and even fixes for the sport’s varied points which have been plaguing it. One of many main points that the sport has confronted is the colossal variety of bots that had contaminated the sport’s servers.
The problem bought so dire followers took it upon themselves to result in change within the recreation, banding collectively to begin a social media marketing campaign known as #SaveTF2 on Twitter.
Quickly sufficient, TF 2’s official Twitter acknowledged the followers and their marketing campaign and promised modifications had been on the horizon, to the followers’ pleasure.
These emotions had been sadly short-lived, nevertheless. Staff Fortress 2 lately launched an update that did little to nothing to fight the overwhelming bots nonetheless terrorizing the sport’s servers. The patch included a variety of different exploit and bug fixes, corresponding to a bug that often displayed placeholder names for gamers on stat screens, and laggy animations for the Halloween bosses and skeletons.
The one change that would positively influence the bot state of affairs within the recreation is the change to the vote kick system, which permits a number of vote kicks to be operating on the similar time.
