Multiplayer shooter Team Fortress 2 is one of the main long-livers of the industry and genre. The action movie premiered in the fall of 2007, and since then it has been alive and well. However, not everything is as smooth as we would like: in recent years, it has become increasingly difficult for its fans to enjoy the gameplay due to the influx of bots. Gamers turned to the developers – and they finally heard them.
Valve released an update that fixed various bugs and exploits, as well as slightly tweaked the voting system. The fans reacted favorably to the patch, but this is not enough – although it has become much easier to kick out unwanted people, the creators of the game have not yet fixed the main problem.
Recall that a few years ago, the source code of the shooter got into the network. After that, his servers began to constantly fill with bots that interfere with ordinary users. Fans sounded the alarm, but until recently, the developers ignored them. The situation changed in May, when Team Fortress fans staged a #SaveTF2 hashtag on Twitter: the company acknowledged the problem and promised to fix it.
