  1.     TF2 General FAQs
  2.  
  3. >I haven’t played in a while, and I have all these items. How much are they worth?
  4. Backpack.tf is what many TF2 traders and players use to check the value of their items. Some users don’t use it and check the prices of the items by visiting trading sites, including bazaar.tf, tf2outpost.com, and tf2tp.com.
  5. You might be able to make a few pennies selling them on the steam market: https://steamcommunity.com/market/
  6.  
  7.  
  8. >I’ve played enough on TF2 public servers. Where do I go?
  9. Ask around the thread if people are doing a “PUG” or a “pick up game”. A PUG is a fun, semi-serious games in competitive format (usually 6v6). Join the group (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/vgsixes) and receive announcements about upcoming games. And I guess there’s this link about Highlander (HL) and 6’s, so here: http://www.ugcleague.com/
  10. You can also try http://tf2lobby.com

  12. --------
  13.  
  14. >I haven't played for X years and just reinstalled, what have I missed?
  15. Read through the patch notes at http://www.teamfortress.com/?tab=updates but you can probably just jump back in without paying too much attention to changes. Just read the item descriptions of weapons.
  16.  
  17. >Anyone have a spare <weapon>?
  18. Just go to scrap.tf and you can trade the bots 1:1 for any weapon in the game. You can also trial weapons for a week in the mannco store ingame.
  19.  
  20. --------
  21.  
  22. >There seems to be a lot of circlejerking and shitposting going around within the thread.
  23. The best thing you can do is not complain about it and bring up a new topic. The thread is what everyone makes it. If you don’t like it, ignore, filter, move on, and bring something up TF2 related. If it doesn't work? Try a different topic. Whining about it only makes it worse.
  24.  
  25. --------
  26.  
  27. >Are there /vg/ servers?
  28. No.
  29. --------
  30.  
  31. >Rate my Jew.
  32. No. Even if you’re excited that you jewed a Cloudy Moon Dapper Topper or a Sunbeams Desert Marauder, keep it to yourself. There are people who lurk the thread waiting for someone to slip up so they can report you. Just keep it to the Steam Chat, please.
  33.  
  34. >Post ending in X names the Weapon Y.
  35. These are cool posts and all, but if you dont provide pictures of before naming and after, It'll be pretty obvious, or seem obvious, that you're just trying to be a faker.
  36.  
  37. --------
  38.  
  39. >Is there an official group I can join?
  40. steamcommunity.com/groups/vghatsgeneral is the one most of us are in.
  41.  
  42. --------
  43.  
  44. >What happened to X Pastebin?
  45. removed because it contained useless info or hadn't been updated in months.
  46.  
  47. -------
  48.  
  49. >I want to see what a certain loadout look like before I buy the hats, miscs, and paint. What do I do?
  50. Go to loadout.tf
  51.  
  52. >My hat and misc combo I want doesn't work because of equip regions. How do I fix that?
  53. Smissmas patch fixed the ability to glitch conflicting items together.
  54.  
  55. >I want full color on my Flair/signpost. How do I do that?

  57. Watch the video, do as it does.
  58.  
  59. --------
  60.  
  61. >I have all these crates. What ones do I open?
  62. Most crates now don't really have a good profit margin. Consult http://www.trade.tf/crates for a list of most profitable crates to open.
  63.  
  64. --------
  65.  
  66. >How do I get tf2 to run on my toaster?
  67. Since tf2 is so poorly optimised, a lot of people still have trouble running this 9 year old game. Use a maxfps config such as http://www.teamfortress.tv/25328/comanglia-s-config-fps-guide (recommended) or https://chrisdown.name/tf2/ (outdated but still used).
