Team Fortress 2 is very encouraging. I haven’t played for years, but it’s good to know that it’s always entertaining a lot of players. Thirteen years after its release, it is still in good shape, and the annual Halloween event “Scream Fortress XII” has appeared and managed to break the player record.
Scream Fortress XII is not a particularly noteworthy event. There are some new creepy community maps and cosmetic items, but you might not think people can get well and reinstall soon, but they’re making a fuss.According to the likes of SteamCharts And SteamDB, The number of simultaneous players has recently exceeded 130,000. This is the highest number ever reported.
It’s a horde of many players, but they aren’t all human. When esports consultant Rob Breslau commented on the surge on Twitter, Team Fortress 2 Still at the mercy of bots..
The bot that will take over Team Fortress 2 Nothing new,Unfortunately. April in particular was a bad time for games, especially casual matchmaking, and urged Valve to release updates that seemed to fix the issue. It didn’t last long. A new bot has arrived. This time, we’ll spam the in-game chat by trolling the player and spitting out racist vitriol. After that, Valve released another update In June to tackle the problem. But now the bot is back enabled.
To Team Fortress 2 subreddit, Players are currently discussing the number of players who are actually bots. The assumption (and that’s pretty reasonable) is that there was a huge surge to cultivate things from the event, but that doesn’t mean that most of these new players are bots. Expired players often return to Halloween. Still, players still often see bots and ruin the game.
Since the Halloween event just started last night, we hope Valve can release an update that removes these nasty intruders. But even if the history of Team Fortress 2 shows us something, they will find a way back.
