    Quickplay is gone. There are still community servers, but if you want a Valve pub, you have to go into casual matchmaking.

    As an example of how terrible it is, if you play CTF, it's one round and then done. It shows a list of how everyone did with a DISCONNECT button at the bottom. You get... casual matchmaking XP for how well you did.

    If you want to play again, the server doesn't change to the next map. You have to go back to the casual matchmaking menu and wait to be put into another server much like waiting around for Mann vs. Machine server to suck you in.

    Also, friends cannot join you in-game, apparently. You have to get into a party and then join the server all at once, much like MvM. I was sucked into a game that was already going on and it ended as soon as I joined. I got XP for being there for the last ten seconds; then, I was disconnected back to the matchmaking menu.

    I've also been given to servers where my ping is over 200 rather than the previous system where I could see the servers ping and choose to avoid them.

    TL;DR
    Quickplay is ded.

    Seeing as I still very much enjoy the gameplay of TF2 and have concern for the operation of its public servers, that is irrelevant.

    Yeah, seems they did a number on the game. I can only cross my fingers, arms, and legs in hopes that they bring back quickplay pubs.

    Although tf2 will always be my gaming roots and I will never give up on it it just hasn't been the same since they killed community servers. They were the heart and soul of the game and my interest fell off after that.

    Even my friend with over 4000 hours who I thought would play tf2 forever hasn't played in almost a month. I don't think tf2 will ever die but it is way past its prime

    TF2 became an Overwatch ripoff.
