ShadowKirby:
To all of you hating on this right now, I hope you realize that TF2 is basically a freemium game right?

TF2 doesn't let you buy your way to domination. No weapon is clearly superior to any other. I'm still using the stock sniper rifle. And it's level server clearing. That changes nothing in the game. TF2 purchases bascically do nothing to change the game's dynamics. In fact certain weapons are worse then others on many situations so you're wasting money. Plus the game gives you free stuff on a scheduled basis that you wold otherwise buy. Buying doesn't get you ahead in the game. Which is fundamentally different from other Freemium games. TF2's problem is that valve secure is more like valve front door open steal my stuff. The number of blatant hacks is getting out of hand. Obvious aim bots where a guy gets 30 headshots in a row without missing, wall hacks, instant übercharge hacks its all rather ridiculous. Freemium works well on tf2 as the only thing that's gets you ahead aside from cheating is skill and team work.
