Playing on Valve servers is SO MUCH FUN.

Most Valve servers I play on have at least 2-3 good-decent players

This is almost always the case, I find. You get these weird stages of competence in Valve servers.

- The guys at the top (usually 2 or 3 of them) are stomping consistently.
- Then in the middle you have the guys that simply understand what they're supposed to do. They attack the guys wearing a different colour and help with the objective. They might not have the best movement or aim, but they get along.
- Then you have the guys consistently at the bottom, barely scraping a couple of points each round (maybe). These are the guys who appear to be playing with their feet. They'll walk into stuff, turn like a turtle, shoot stacks of tires and stare at things in the environment as if to say "What the...what is this? Where am I?"

It's quite bizarre.

By the way, just a quick note: saying that it's fun to own a bunch of bad players isn't the same as saying "I'm an awesome player."

pretty much for this

of course this is offset by those people on your team like those soldiers that just run and shoot straight at nothing, or the heavies that rev their minigun all the way from spawn

Valve servers haven't had playable ping for the entire East coast for a week.

^ LOL! I hate it when they are all on your team, and the only other good players are all on the other team though.

I've noticed that Valve servers are often half full of players with 150+ ping, which usually ruins my fun. I thought matchmaking was supposed to put you in nearby servers, not ones on the other side of the world.

Yeah I don't know what they did to their servers but every valve server that comes up for me has exactly 100 ping. A couple years ago I was getting 30 ping in valve servers. I guess they moved them or allocated the good ones to something else (probably DOTA 2)

whenever i go on valve servers i end up against an entire team of pubstompers while the rest of my team is typical valve server players

edit: actually, on second thought, that's pretty much what happens on almost every server i go on, valve or otherwise.

I find this sort of thing incredibly irritating. I can either be on the pubstomper team and team up on newbies, or join the newbie team and be teamed up on by the pubstompers. It's either too easy or unrealistically difficult.
