    since when do servers mean anything?

    most people look for the best pings and nothing else.
    It's a well known fact that Valve servers are full of new players. And it's very common that more experienced players join these server so that they can fool themselves in to thinking that they are actually good at the game.

    I once went playing there with friends on Hightower. They spent a nice sum of time complaining about their team in Finnish (one almost got kicked), I called them to "be nice boys and complain about your team in a language that people can understand or shut up" and we left after 10 minutes.

    That only means these people will inevitably face players of their own kind, resulting in a hint of balance.

    I would estimate that maybe 90% of all the players that join these server are relatively new to the game, so the more experienced players will still have a rather easy time killing other players on that server. And it's not that uncommon that they also bring friends to help them out.

    I don't walk around with my DR because it always leads to me getting shot exactly one attosecond before I take it down, leading to an emberassing instant decloak and prompt death.
    I mostly walk around with it up when enemies aren't around, because it prevent death from Snipers, backstabs, and random critical projectiles from nowhere.

    I mostly walk around with it when I'm not fully aware what's in my surroundings, if I'm walking around corners, or if manage to fool someone with disguises.

    But recently I've stopped using the Dead Ringer, the normal watch fits my playstyle better.

    I only play on Valve servers when all the servers I normally play on (FUN-Gineers, a private server for a bunch of people I know, etc) are full/empty

    This happens more often than you'd think.

    Well I played a good 15 hours on some Valve servers when I came back to the game after a long period of not playing. And I saw some players with strange weapons/hats/unusuals but they weren't very common at all, I never saw more than 4 of those players in the same game.

    Damn straight, that was the FIRST community I was in!
    Now I'm in CFGU, but I still hang around the FUN-Gineer server whenever the CFGU ones are empty.
    Nice guys there.

    Not necessarily, but some experienced players who play on valve servers are tryhards, and the one that B-Rabbit described sounds like one of them.

    Well, I just went on a server that is the crappiest I've played in my 800 hours of TF2.
    It even surpasses NightTeam and WonkaGaming and Saings.
    Let's just list all the facts about it:

    - 24/7 2fort.
    - Bots.
    - Ads.
    - All donators/admins are invincible against 90 percent off all attacks, damage goes back to the attacker, and gives them a free kill in most cases, unless the kill should have insta-killed the donator.
    - The admin is the biggest douche ever. He keeps bragging about how everyone else without preminum benefits is rubbish because they keep getting slayed upon attacking a donator/admin.
    - Furthermore, he would not shut up ever about his farmed 1 million kills stranges, and is incredibly rasistic against people trying to kill him, calling them out on everything.
    - He talks in 9gag language, because he thinks it actually angers people.
    - He says he is pro because he has clocked more than 6000 hours, yet he still plays only on his server with godmode on because he is a really sore loser. I think even that he is afraid to go to Valve servers.
    - He has an incredible band of kiss-ups. Of course, also all with godmode on.
    - Oh, and he likes to insult others on their profiles.

    So, I went to the epitome of shit in TF2.
    Just remember that for every bad server, there is even a worse one somewhere out there.

    I've played on their servers a few times, I didn't really care for the people playing on it, but that's it.

    Most of the popular submissions in the workshop are "ideas" instead of actual models, and one of the top submissions is a mask from Crash Bandicoot.

    If it's actual fixes they should definitely be acceptable, but there's also plenty of things that are just ideas on how to fix things without any actual content. I really think the Workshop should have some sort of things that prevents people from submitting unless they attach actual content that can be used in the game (if such a thing does not already exist).

    Well, it seems he was still hurt about a TF2 forum ban I may have caused.
    It was about the time of the Great Contributor Hack, and in short, he was being an insensemtive prick in general, laughing about everyone who was hacked because of their fandoms, I told him to gent bent, freaky fish guy, he flipped his shit as usual, and promptly insulted everyone on the forums, he got banned and got never over it. The end.

    Reserving damage is a prick move too, didn't even know it was possible.
    Still, he is not satire, he practically glees with joy everytime he dominates someone, most likely by some admin abuse. You know, the behavior of a sterotypically CoD kiddie, but grown up in the physical sense.
    And even Tommy Wisenau is more audible than him.

    I find people being afk annoying. Especially for the duration of the game and they don't get kicked.
    The lack of team work.
    Or when I've joined a game and the opposite team is kicking ass because the team I've joined had no defense. So I'll go be an engy and set up a nice defense. Then all of a sudden 2 extra people decide to be an engy as well and set up right next to me. And during that time our team still loses because there was no real teamwork and there would be too many spies and snipers that aren't very good. Especially spies who just stay cloaked for the duration of the match. Or people who should be out in the front stay at the back with us and don't really push forward.

    It's a well known fact that Valve servers are full of new players. And it's very common that more experienced players join these server so that they can fool themselves in to thinking that they are actually good at the game.
    They join to pubstomp not think they're good.

    Can't deny some people still get off from pubstomping.

    More relevant; can't stand people who use competitive play terms in pub matchs. Think I've said this before maybe, but it's just irritating.
