but what exactly is a "pub" server? I've heard this term thrown around quite often but I still don't understand what it means. What determines whether a server is a "pub" server or a "non-pub" server? --- Live long and prosper.

Public. Skial and such. Generally characterized by having absolutely no changes (full crits, damage spread on, everything goes, no class limits, etc.) Generally has a lower skill level, but "pub stompers", especially on more popular servers, are common.
Expect to see many Snipers, Spies, w+m1 Pyros, as well as frequent amounts of good player either making themselves feel good for winning (usually a black box/gunboat rocket jumper), or people screwing around (such as me as a Mittens Hoovy). --- My balls do not blend.

Is it a PUG(pick up game) or http://www.tf2lobby.com/ no?

pub = public server. A server you can join by going into the server list --- Gamefaqs removed my signature because it had a naughty word

Pub = Public game, random people, no organization, anything goes PUG = Pick Up Game, people who organize teams that communicate and compete, usually extra rules or limitations exist (weapon restrictions, specific class set ups like 6s or highlander, etc.) Lobby = a pub with more competent people basically, usually has specific class formats as well --- Lost mah sigs ;_;

Are you implying there's a non-public public server? --- "HE are genius, firstly." - ASlaveObeys

if you have 6 snipers, then you're in a pub server --- Girls = Time x Money. Time = Money. Girls = Money x Money = Money sq. Money = sqrt Evil: Girls = sqrt Evil sq. Girls = Evil

Wow. I didn't know there were so many different types of servers. All this time I've just been entering pubs through the in-game sever browser. --- Live long and prosper.
