The new Team Fortress 2 update was intended to resolve long-standing issues, but so far its failed ...

In recent times, Team Fortress 2 has experienced a surge of new content and significant updates, or even fixes for the games various issues that have plagued it. One of the greatest challenges that the game has faced is the immense number of bots that had infected the games servers.

Fans gathered together to start a social media campaign called #SaveTF2.

The official Twitter of TF 2 fans acknowledged the campaign and promised improvements, putting the fans on the verge of being amazed.

However, these feelings were short-lived. Team Fortress 2 recently released a patch that did nothing to help the games servers, but included a host of additional exploits and bugs, including a bug that occasionally displayed placeholder names for players on stat screens and crappy animations for Halloween villains and skeletons.

The only improvement that might in turn impact the bot situation in the game is the change to the vote kick system, which allows multiple vote kicks to be implemented simultaneously.

This change may help to kick the bots in a game, but as bots continue to thrive in large numbers than actual players, theres little benefit that it brings, particularly since booting real players is a danger now.

The TF2s player base is currently offering the devs the benefit of the doubt, and it''s assumed this is the first of many updates they will release. It''s only time that this is the case.
