If TF2 were to be shut down, nobody would notice outside of their cliques. It would be pretty funny imagining some of them trying to be regular people after wasting their life and losing social skills to a 13-year-old game.

I also want to see all the rage those players would have, when all of the TF2 cosmetics that they whaled out for, are now worth pretty much $0. (Or would somehow, those cosmetics would retain some sort of value, even if the game for it is dead?)

Just an update on the latest drama right now in TF2: Karma Charger.

Karma Charger was prolific for making educational TF2 videos on the various weapons added to the game, complete with damage numbers and every use possible. He was essentially the TF2 Wikipedia in video form. He recently deleted his YouTube channel out of nowhere because "it was affecting his mental health and social life" instead of acting like any sane person would and just logging out of his account.

TF2 just cannot stop shooting itself in the foot. This game has become a goldmine for mentally unstable people that cannot get a grip and want attention. I don't mind it, though; it is a joy to watch and has some notable lolcows that can undoubtedly get their own thread on the farms.

absolute state of tf2 content.JPG

This is the absolute state of tf2 YouTubers. How the fuck did we go from simple gameplay commentaries to this faggot ass shit? You can't go a single video without finding a Reddit buzzword or a shitty meme in the title. Can't forget about cropped porn or a zoomed-up face of any class in the thumbnail. Regardless, the tf2 playerbase will eat this shit up without any semblance of self-awareness.

And this is just from MediExcalibur2012's video catalogue who (shock and surprise) is a massive aspie.

Apparently he claimed it was a hacker last time? At least this one was honest in some form but he had to go with having "a friend" relay the information, and him wiping his whole content library after already doing it before is an aut move. Seeing the commenters on this topic defend this decision is asinine. Do people really think the only way to drop what you're doing is to go scorched earth on it?

:(
At least their viewcounts are shit even for a tf2 dedicated channel.

Anyways, in other news that I don't think was covered here, a tf2 youtuber who had a decent following and was such a big fan of the game he made a total conversion recreation of another game just to fit the tf2 characters in it

Made a whinefest (after years of decline in viewership)
just like many other people have about the state of the game, which starts off complaining about the bots but then he starts citing "racism, sexism, transphobia" as if they're actual problems with the game not to mention like they're even exclusive to what the game is like in 2021. Valve has for the most part never moderated any offensive speech in in game chats because it's asinine and would take way too much of their resources to do. Look at valve games in any year and you'd see people saying the nigger word or calling someone a faggot. Regardless even this obvious attention grab has failed because it's barely reached half the viewcount of even his less popular videos from yesteryear.

Posting the entire thing from Reddit:

I'm a friend of Karma. Been since the beginning of 2020 and I have been helping him with his CS:GO channel.
Yesterday, he sent me this long message on Discord and he gave me permission to post this here.
"Tell everyone I'm sorry. And I thank everything people have done for me. I never wanted to hurt my audience and my friends feelings.

I just have too much issue because of how much pain and suffering my internet career has caused me.

I get to make money online, so I don't go out at all to meet with other people. Ever since 2014 I do YouTube.

Eventually I developed a lot of mental and physical issues. Lack of discipline, anti-social, social anxiety, depression, fast-food diet.

I've been living in this lifestyle for so long. Many times I'm at the edge of suicide. For people who say "you should have done this, or you could have done that".

Because you're in your comfort zone. You don't know what it's like to be in this situation where you thought of killing yourself.

In 2019, I deleted all of my videos. Just to force myself to go out in the world I avoided for a decade. I literally put my life out in the world like I'm fighting a damn war

just to adapt with society, people, and also talking to girls. Because I know for a fact, If I lost my internet carrer, the one thing that's holding me back in my life so long.

Then I will be forced to face all of my problems at once.

Because If I'm taking my own life anyway. What do I have to lose. Why not just say fuck it and go out and do every damn thing just to see if miracle happens in my miserable life.

And did it work? yes it does. I feel less depress, socially awkward, and less suicidal. So finally I get to breath some fresh air after suffering for so long.

I got a job in real life, friends, and my life got a total reverse. Then I think coming back to YouTube should be fine. Because "I got" my problems under control.

So I reupload all my videos, re-monetize. And then I slowly fall back into my older ways of living. It's like a drug relapse. And a never ending cycle.

Then my channel gets hijacked by some Russian hacker, sold to a vietnamese, then sold to another vietnamese just my channel gets spammed with copyrighted videos.

Which is just perfect, because my suicidal problems and all my other mental issues came back in a week. I lost sleep for 2 weeks straight.

After my channel came back in 58 days. I decided to go back out in the world to recover myself. Then covid-19 comes. And my country gets a full lockdown for 2 years.

Just perfect, because I'm already mentally fucked and drained from all this bullshit happening in such a short amount of time.

If you expect me to deal with these mental health problems while being locked in my house for 2 years. You better shoot me in the head instead. So in these 2 years.

I continue to upload, make money, and living my usual screwed up lifestyle. While being paranoid about the virus. Because my neighbour caught it. My good friend died because of it.

Then I have fucking enough. None of this will happen If I never chosen to be a YouTuber. I would have never developed these mental and health issues. Because I would have gone outside to have a job, meeting with people, and I could also have been in a relationship with a women I care about. Instead I'm being reduced to the mess I am today. All because I gave myself a excuse not to face my life because I get to make so much money online. At the end, it didn't even matter one bit to me.

This trauma has happened to me for the third time. I'm not going to let this happen to me ever again in the future. So either I die, or I erase everything to ensure I won't return back just to feel the same way like a never-ending cycle of pain. I don't know what will happen to me after all this. And I don't give a fuck, because anywhere is better than the horseshit I'm dealing with right here.

I know a lot of you care about my content. And I'm sorry for hurting all of your feelings for the second time. If you want to hate me. I accept it. But please understand the reason I'm so done here is because I still have some desires left to live a life. If I still continue to do youtube, I will only keep falling back into my older ways of life, down to the point where I finally take my own life.

Please move on with life. And pretend everything I created never existed. Because none of it actually did any good to me. I'm sorry, but I have to go. "
A couple of hours later, he messaged me again saying:
" You may feel disappointed with me. Which I understand. I wouldn't do this if I have another choice. All this issue were started when I was 13. Until now I'm 25. I'm left with nothing but a mess I created for myself. I just want to put a end to all this, so I don't have to go through all this again. I'm sorry I was hiding all my pain. And it's taking a toll on me."

It really hurts to see him go, honestly. But I hope he'll have a better life out there. I'll post an update in case something else's going on with him.

TL;DR Fuck the internet, it gave me fatass disease.

Basically the entire nonsense story portrayed here doesn't make the situation anything other than entirely his fault. And what about having a job on the internet forces you to do everything else in life solely through the internet, never allowing you to leave your house? Does this guy think the only way other people socialize is at the office? Because the orwellian job overlords don't allow you to do anything other than your job for the entire time you have it?

If this guy comes back a second time to reinstate his channel he's 100% lolcow material.

The dude's melodramatic and rambly, but the stuff he's saying seems fairly sensible to me. He's prone to getting addicted to the Internet and withdrawing from society, so having a job where he's perpetually on the Internet isn't healthy for him. A job that forces him out of the house and provides a bit of structure to his day sounds like exactly what he needs, tbh.

Frag videos are still here, but the modern-day equivalent requires the need to brainlessly edit as many dead memes, loud sound effects, and flashing images as possible to appeal to the masses. Most of these "frag videos" are in casual pubs since the average tf2 player is too scared to join a scrim or PUG. Not to mention that all of them are titled something like "TF2casual.exe" or "Tf2 in 2021 is so cursed XDDDD". And this is thanks to faggots like Soundsmith who singlehandedly made the community more mentally defective with his repetitive "Le epic funny moments" video format.

As shitty as the tf2 competitive scene is, you have to admit that their frags are significantly more impressive.

I think pub frags are more entertaining to watch. They allow for styling and wild wind-ups to the kill. Not to mention that competitive compilations, while also very impressive, are just more of the same because of the strict meta enforced there outside of silly scrims.

There aren't a lot of them left, but I keep a small list of people that make frag compilations without Reddit editing. Outside of those, it's just a cycle. Youtube channel starts, maybe it even produces creative content. I tune in to watch and observe the spiral into usual TF2 autism. As soon as "serious talk" videos, collabs with unfunny retards or face reveals take hold, I unsubscribe. Rinse and repeat.

Acting like it required a nuking of his channel rather than just slapping together a goodbye video or just abandoning the channel doesn't make any sense though. Even considering his supposed addiction to making videos on vidya all that is required to do what he wants was to walk away from the computer.

Is there a way to rapidly save 90+ webpages?
Whoever is in charge of making announcements in TF2 decided it would be a great idea to broadcast to the entire world that a server is doing a charity event for LGBTQ suicide prevention (Which honestly I believe to be a tax writeoff but that's perphaps for another thread).

The thread under this is legitimately one of the biggest and most entertaining flame wars in recent memory that I can recall, however the steam jannies are deleting posts like there's no tomorrow, highly recommend reading it while it's still up, great read.

Some of the past shit listed on the trevor projects page include: https://give.thetrevorproject.org/campaign/Fundraise-for-Trevor/c24399/search?type=team

The last thing before hex horrors was specifically relating to some tranny suicide.
https://give.thetrevorproject.org/team/367108

This is such a massive grift of an organization. They've most likely raised at least 200k plus, and for what, a copy of suicide prevention orgs that already exist just to cater to LGBT? We should definitely archive this site.
Edit: past archives show they've got a worth at least 1mil+.

1634682427686.png

Edit 2: They've existed since at least 2016.
https://web.archive.org/web/2016092...trevorproject.org/checkout/donation?eid=63307

Wikipedo article claims they've been around since '98, though I doubt it was much of a thing then. From it's founding story:

Apparently Trevor isn't even a real person in the vein of other organizations, which seems heavily misleading. They're purely a made up gay child from a short film.

Excellent what the community needs, more troons coming to the game. Thanks, valve.
I like the comments are mad that instead of fixing the game instead they are promoting a scam.

I've been wary of any of these promoted charity things but this takes the cake of obtuse shadiness. Founded by some rando faggot filmmakers in California, the name of the business implying it's a real person who sodokud'd but that's not even true, and the fact they apparently make money off of the "Trevor" likeness through various stageplays and the existing film. Ridiculous. This is the pure concentration of the TF2 teams apathy towards the game.
