Team Fortress 2 Finally Gets Competitive Matchmaking
Team Fortress 2 update adding matchmaking, ranked play and more - Polygon
Over a year since it was announced, Team Fortress 2 's matchmaking finally goes live today, after a surprise announcement earlier this week. The update also ushers in the long-awaited Competitive Mode, as well as the replacement of Quickplay with an unranked Casual Mode. If you have Team Fortress 2 installed, the update should be available right now. In addition to these sweeping changes, which Andy detailed earlier this week , the update also introduces three new community maps in the form of Sunshine, Metalworks and Swiftwater. There's also four new taunts, including three community taunts for Pyro, Spy and Soldier, and an official taunt for the Scout.
Team Fortress 2 is finally getting competitive matchmaking
Team Fortress 2 was released nine years ago wow, right? But better late than never, and now that it's on the verge of going live, all the bases appear to be covered. The Competitive Mode FAQ says matches will be six-on-six affairs with no class or weapon restrictions, no random critical hits, no changing teams, and fixed shotgun spreads. Penalties for leaving games before they're over will be harsh: Abandoning a game in progress will count as an automatic loss and result in the deduction of points, which could actually cost you an earned rank.
Ever since the first apes climbed out of the trees, there were apes who did it faster. Some apes just fell out of the tree. It's a sad fact that all apes are not created equal. Presenting our newest tree-climbing-down simulator, matchmaking. Play alone or with your friends against players of similar skill levels.
