            zesty manually sent out over 7000 giftapults and checked each individual account they went to
            about 70% were bot accounts

        If I remember correctly, back when teamwork.tf used to be "semi-accurate" and still available, TF2 would always hover around 30K real players. That number would jump to about 100K when some sort of update was released, so yeah the numbers are pretty close. 30K for such an old ass game is impressive tho, shame it's being treated like this.

                Sure go ahead. Though if anything if anything this is evidence they aren't just making the numbers up. You're more likely to fail to read the data and produce a zero if you were actually trying to read the data after all. Why produce a 0 if your website just has to pump out made up numbers?

                Now keep in mind, where it's breaking down is that you're asserting that either they have some entirely nonsensical fetching scheme for two different status viewers that is presenting two different sets of data for the individual status viewers and none of this is stored locally.
                But if their data collection and presentation is done in any sort of standard way this is how they would go about it.
                And keep in mind, Local storage can be updated ANY time a user queries it.
                This wouldn't even mean they kept long term data on hand.
                There is ZERO reasonable explanation for how two outputs for the same data could EVER be desynchronized, unless of course, they don't actually refer to any sort of backend data.
                In addition for the duration that this "error" was happening with the output of the main page player tracker, the statistics page was displaying an entirely different data set, which logically wouldn't be possible unless of course, you believe that ~16k players were hopping on and off in the instant between you switching between the pages back during June through roughly October of 2023.

                Right, so you're saying there was discrepancy in the two pages on the same website, gotcha. Then it looks like it was a website error. Or teamwork.tf is as you say, nonsensically fetching separately instead of using the same local data storage for both pages.

                In any case, you would still have a problem suggesting that the numbers have to be made up, because made up numbers should still be using a local data and therefore wouldn't make sense on the same logic.

                Anon, if there's ANY discrepancy between the referred datasets even on the insane suggestion that the backend fetches arbitrarily from different sources, then yes the numbers are unreliable.
                I.E. they're made up, it's just a matter of who's making them up, whatever hypothetical resource teamwork was pulling from, or teamwork themselves.

                But it's literally just one page failing to produce a value from its local data. It's not like itproduced some completely random number making it seem unreliable. It produced a flat 0, as in "page failed to draw the data.

                Again. If it was made up numbers, they would also be stored on a local data. On your same logic the error still shouldn't be happening.

                No reason they aren't stored in a local data that the page managed to load properly.

                Again. If it was made up numbers, they would also be stored on a local data. On your same logic the error still shouldn't be happening.

      There was a time when people actually wanted matchmaking, then they realized how moronic it was but by then it was too late.
      What nobody understands (Or rather doesn't want to understand) is that Valve didn't let TF2 die, the players did.
      Valve spent millions of dollars and tens of thousands of man hours on Jungle Inferno, only for the playerbase to bump up by 20k (not including bots) for a week or two only to return to the same level it was before. In fact after the update there were LESS people on average playing throughout 2018. It was a massive money sink and a waste of time.
      People wonder why Valve is reluctant to do anything, well guess what, THEY DID. And it accomplished absolutely fricking nothing. These homosexuals had their chance already and they still did nothing. The biggest update in years and the momentum was lost.
      Flash forward years later and TF2gays are STILL pumping hundreds of thousands of dollars into the game buying keys for dogshit community hats in a constantly inflating map pool.

          Valve doesn't just let people matchmake into uncletopia or skial because NOBODY WANTS TO PLAY THOSE, they'd rather chance to get a game with bots than play with those people.

            lol sorry dota is just more fun than tf2, a game that got old back in 2013. if you were still playing post love and war the last real update with any passion and the true finale before the few maintenance mode patches mostly created to steal last minute cash from possibly the competitive community which failed and csgo skins LOL

                And it doesn't matter that it's "money walking out the door". It's fricking Valve.
                The company that is known for scrapping literally 95% of the projects they work on because it's not interesting enough.
                You think Valve doesn't make games? They do. Literally all the time. They just never release them.
                Valve doesn't care about free money. If they did they'd have pumped out 15 more HL2 episodes for FREE MONEY. There'd have been an L4D3 by now because people are starved for coop games.
                Instead they simply don't fricking release anything they don't deem "interesting", and I honestly doubt a single fricking person at Valve finds working on a shitty 17 year old FPS to be interesting.

        Valve is the same company that is still to this day giving Tyler free access to their games and insider news. Despite consistently going against NDA like streaming the Half Life Alyx beta and publicly posting the TF2 source code. They have also made multiple poor business decisions for the past decade. They are ran by idiots while Gaben buys yachts. The real talent at Valve is long gone and they're no longer hiring modders that gave them hit after hit. They're coasting off a marketplace that just stole every feature from programs like XFire. As well as the monetization marketplace from the same morons whaling over jpgs on their phones.

        Sadly there's no real alternative beyond GOG Galaxy which even that still feels like it's in the 2003 Steam era stone age.

        They did ban around 10k cheaters around 2019, but it didn't do shit since the bot host would just rewritten their code a bit and march on. Not to mention that they couldn't stop CSGO cheaters either without relying on Pcbros to do it for free.

          Another moron question, but couldn't the botting problem just be solved by having players complete a captcha on the menu screen?

          It feels like there are countless super obvious super simple things they could do to essentially make the game go "does this player smell like a bot" and then just deny them access if they fail to pass muster.

      TF2 is still one of the best games ever made when you can get into a good lobby.
      Problem is good lobbies are getting rarer and rarer and community servers are in a pretty sorry state themselves.
      I don't understand how the game being ruined by bots in any way contradicts the movement for the game to stop being ruined by bots.

      A few that have bought accounts that bought TF2 before it went free to play
      And a VANISHINGLY small proportion of people that ACTUALLY played TF2 pre-f2p.
      This was pretty well known with regards to some of the older Ganker servers from MyM largely being full of people that started playing around 1-2 years from the current year.

      And it doesn't matter that it's "money walking out the door". It's fricking Valve.
      The company that is known for scrapping literally 95% of the projects they work on because it's not interesting enough.
      You think Valve doesn't make games? They do. Literally all the time. They just never release them.
      Valve doesn't care about free money. If they did they'd have pumped out 15 more HL2 episodes for FREE MONEY. There'd have been an L4D3 by now because people are starved for coop games.
      Instead they simply don't fricking release anything they don't deem "interesting", and I honestly doubt a single fricking person at Valve finds working on a shitty 17 year old FPS to be interesting.

      Valve would rather work on Artifact and Underlords. Its filled with trust fund morons who treat it like highschool.

        In the case for TF2, it was because 12v12 was too complicated for competitive players, in general though it's because it's easier to fill up games with lower player counts.
        This is also a problem with counterstrike, too. Since they moved down to 5v5 following the competitive format, when Counterstrike is WAY WAY more fun with 10 on 10.

      The shit is radioactive garbage bro.

    the problem with community servers is its a lot more restrictive, especially for "vanilla tf2"

    this are the following servers i can group just by looking at the browser
    >Uncletopia (24/7 payload)
    >24/7 2fort
    >24/7 Hightower
    >24/7 Turbine
    >custom vanilla mvm
    >modded mvm
    >x100/x1000
    >VSH
    >deathrun
    there are also some outliers that are just one server

    if people actually want a mass migration back into community, make more vanilla tf2 servers

    How about instead of trying to get rid of the bots, you come up with a way to subtly identify and curral them into their own isolated servers?

      Because from every mechanical metric, the bots appear to be players. If they had a way to tell using code they would already be using it to just ban the bots.

          Wrong, sourcemod can only look for names, micspam, and naughty words in text chat. As for detection of hacks or a player being a bot it doesn't do dick and you need a mod.

    I believe Valve NEEDS to create a better anti cheat, not only for TF2, just look what's happening to their main cash cow, it's full of bots and cheaters, and guess what's going to happen when Deadlock enters the market? it's going to be filled with bots on day 0

      So? You're typing English on Ganker. You're not the main target for valve games anymore boy.

      If valve could do that they would accomplish what every other game company can't do. Much less with the games source code leaked.

      Anti cheat don't work in any game bro

        if you have their email but they have authentication enabled, email/call support and say you forgot your pass word, and use their CC as confirmation

      That's the best part, you can't even get the entire concurrent playerbase to care about the game so it has to be done by literal bots
