All the items are available to find/build. You don't have to buy anything if you don't want to (and the new weapons are not overpowered vs stock).

This is just sick. Gives gamers a bad name.

meh, the influx of free players has made for some really shitty rounds. On the other hand there are lots of easy kills.

With the quantity of servers I don't think it is much of an issue.

Well people have to start somewhere, good gamers don't just pop up out of freakin' nowhere. Come on guys.
Also I still find it fun and quite challenging anyway... plus there is a much smaller percentage of jackasses playing TF2 than say COD.

Many players have favourite servers that feature players, cultures and rule sets they enjoy. I rarely play, so it doesn't matter much to me, but I can completely understand the frustration some players have with the change.

I play on about 3 different servers on a regular basis and I haven't really noticed a change other than some easier kills and some sloppy rounds but other than that the game feels the same.

If you play on reliable servers cheating isn't an issue because GOOD admins simply won't let it happen.
