Team Fortess 2 is the award-winning first person shooter by Valve. Along with the standard maps present in TF2, there are hundreds of custom maps for the game that can be downloaded and installed. This is due to the easily accesible nature of the Source Development Kit which allows the creation of everything from custom mods to maps. This guide will cover where to find TF2 map downloads, as well as how to install them for use manually. There is no shortage of map repositories, and other than the websites listed below, a quick Google search will reveal even more resources for finding and downloading maps. TF2 Maps - As the name implies, this is a site dedicated to the hosting of various custom maps. Game Banana - This site is a general website for custom content in games, and has a large section devoted to TF2 map downloads.
Matchmaking is a completely new experience for TF2. It combines the unfettered and wacky world of public play with some intense competition and small team sizes. From casual pubbers to competitive superstars, everybody will need to be aware of the differences and adapt to reach the top.
Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It only takes a minute to sign up. Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search. Another Valve game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive allows setting the highest allowed ping for connected servers in options, but I haven't found a corresponding option in the Team Fortress 2 settings or a console command for the game.
