How do i TF2?

As some of you know i just got steam and found out my compy can run basic 3d games. But I'm nervous to join random places and be totally suckish at the games. I just dunno how to aim in stuff with a mouse and move with a keyboard T3T I was raised on controlers and I guess i'm in an awkward transition phase.

If you have an Xbox 360 controller you can use that on TF2

i go on this one server that is furry friendly. it is good practice and they are really nice. all you have to do is tell them you are new. i can PM you the ip if you like

Probably the easiest thing to do would play as Medic and follow around a Heavy, Soldier or Pyro, at least to get started.

it takes a little bit of practice, and you can custom set your keyboard functions, mebby even to a controller hooked to your computer, but TF2 is alot of fun! an there are a couple of furry servers out there like The Furry Pound or Legion of Ponies, i like to play on those alot.

Random games can be fun or terrible, depending on your team but i tend to use them for trying out new classes or weapon configurations. when you have a team that actually plays as a team [not just all go pyro an see how it goes] you can really dominate!

Hmm, well we could play together if you wanted to add my steam [ add friend: pyro400069 ]  mah name will come up as Hemorrhoy Rogers, not ped0tter ^^;;

TIPS:

TIP 1: do at least one round of the in-game tutorial, there you can see the basics a bit

TIP 2: go to an empty server to get familiar with the maps and moving through it fast

TIP 3: ask friends/ IB-watchers to do some matches with you on a set time

TIP 4: don't take it too serious, a lot of people start out at the bottom but can rise quickly

TIP 5: HAVE FUN!

It comes with a tutorial mode, starts off learning the weapons, then matches against the AI. After that, try a furry friendly server or the like. Thefurrypound and others tend to have mixed skilled players and be less...competitive. I'd also recommend maybe a youtube video or two of the class you want to play with tips on playing it, some have very good advice for tactical heavy classes like spies.

you can use a controller with tf2

however I do not recamend it.

It will feel a little awkward at first but you will find that if you use a mouse and keyboard more it comes very fluid and natural.

im like you I useualy hate mouse and keyboard for games but when it comes to first person shooters, the mouse is actualy allot faster, allost sharper and more fluid in it's controls and allot more  accurate once you are used to it.

Not to mention that if your mouseing you can spin around and attack whats behind you much faster then with a game pad.

the main reason is that with a controller your movement is controled by one thumb and your aim is controlled by the other, and your fireing is controlled by a finger pressing a shoulder button. (on an xbox gamepad.)

With a mouse your movement is controled by the w-a-s-d keys  bbut the importen thing, your aim is controlled by the direction you move the mouse. the targeting reticule is allways locked to the center of your veiw so you dont have to worry about moveing it over the enamy just get them dead center in your screen pretty much XD you will find it's more responsive and faster then with a joystick.

The thing that will be awkward at first is this extra speed.

yeah, source engine games (tf2 is one) support controllers, I have a wired xbox 360 controller and a ps2 controller with usb adapter and they both worked with my source engine games, and anything that doesn't have controller support there is this neat program called xpadder, they are charging $10 for it now though ^..^'

I'm a fairly good TF2 player (playing 2 years and running) and I can give you a few tips, first do some basic training in the start up menu. Next try to learn a power class (Soldier, Demo, Heavy, Pyro) since the most common mistake people do when they play TF2 for the first time is play Sniper, Scout and Spy, classes that are honestly difficult to learn and require a lot of knowledge of the map and a fair amount of luck/skill. The next thing you should know is that there is no upgrades in the game for weapons other then a few melee weapons like the Escape plan (soldier), or the Ubersaw (medic). Next the TF2Wiki ( http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Main_Page ) is a big help when it comes to seeing weapons and how they work along with a few tips, after that it's experimenting on what sorta combinations you like using and which game types you enjoy and have fun. and after a while if you enjoy the game upgrade to a premium account (basically just get a steam card and spend $5 in the mann.co store) since you'll get more weapon drops and possible cosmetic items and a larger backpack and it allows you to trade.

TF2, or Trade Fortress 2, is a wonderful game, but it's Pay-2-Win and F2P are hated

I strongly recommend buying all the weapons from the in-game store, avoid the hats because they create too much drama

my best hint to you is start play as Engenear, they are easiest to play, it will learn you the basicks of the game
