Groups

Everyone knows that TF2 has a wide range of community servers available, but there is a growing problem - many TF2 community groups are making Team Scramble a Premium feature on their servers.

First off, let's talk about Team Scrambling:
Team scrambling is a balancing feature found on many online multiplayer games. What it does is at either the end of a round or after a successful vote, players are randomly assigned to both teams. This is to ensure a more equal playing field, preventing long-time professional players from outright steamrolling novices in an act known as "Team-stacking" (where all the top players agree to stay on the same team). Yes, it may annoy players by denying them a potential killstreak record but it prevents one-sided matches.

Next, let's go over why many tf2 groups require premium features:
Premium features are additional features available on a server accessed by players donating money (or the community-accepted in-game trade currency e.g. Mann Co. Keys in TF2) to keep a server running. Usually these features are related to server entry such as the ability to skip ads, reserve spaces on the server, etc. Some are purely cosmetic such as particle effects on your character while you're on the server. However... there are some features that heavily effect the gameplay. These include, but are not limited to:

-Super-upgraded, overpowered weapons activated on command
-Immunity from Autobalance and scrambling
-Ability to initiate votes to kick and temporarily ban players
and, of course,
-Ability to intiate votes to scramble the teams

So what is the Problem with making votes a premium feature? Well...:
This prevents most normal players from balancing out the teams, which means it's possible that there will be a 20-win deficit between two teams (as seen on www.saigns.de) and as such will make it unfair for most players.

What should you do to avoid being caught on such a server?:
If you do connect to such a server disconnect ASAP and add it to your server blacklist, then post on the game's community hub a warning about the server's group in order to prevent groups like this from getting players.

I primarily role-play on this website and as such, all my main deviations will usually be character bios and Role-play scenarios.

:bulletred: I do not do journal-tags
:bulletred: I do not do chain comments
:bulletred: I do not do commishes, point commishes or Kiribans.
:bulletyellow: I occasionally do gifts, usually depending on inspiration from my role-plays or other user's MLP comics.
:bulletyellow: I do photography for a personal thing that I do on the side using toys, Primarily scale model cars (rallying in particular). My camera, depending on what I have on me and what charge is on my devices are only a Nokia Lumia 625 and a Nintendo 3DS XL, so not really professional equipment (although I am surprised at how high-quality the photos are on the Lumia when focused properly).

No problem. By the way, no offence but you need to work on your English. I have seen multiple times in your comments and art descriptions that when you try to type in English, it is usually broken like a bad dub translation.

But I don´t use the traslator. :lonely:

Anyway, I´ll try, but I don´t promise nothing. :XD: English is not my main language, and most of the things I learned for experience talking with people on internet... so consider lucky I am speaking with you! =P

You're welcome :). I'm a big fan of your Gotta Learn to Say Goodbye comic, which brings me onto something: I know you're bugged many times a day about this, but do you have any future pages planned for the comic at all? I really want to see what happens next but your most recent page was posted almost a year ago :|

Thank you!! I am not sure about it, since I've been really busy with university and my flying lessons, I haven't even had some free time to sit and draw for myself, I have commissions to finish, lots of homework and studying to do *cries* I've been debating with myself whether I should continue with it, or start it all over again (I'm not comfortable with the first pages), maybe in some distant future I'll continue with it, since I once said it was something I wanted to finish, but given the circumstances right now, I don't know ):

So for the time being, GLtSG is on an indefinite hiatus. That really sucks. I was getting into the story too!

No, I have not and that is a pretty dark story involving Bambi's world being consumed by darkness. I guess it makes sense in the context of Kingdom Hearts. 

Seeing that you're a brony and a Kingdom Hearts fan, I encourage you to join :iconkh-fim:
