TF2 Revival!

TF2 has just undergone a major overhaul!

Hello everyone!


TF2 has finally received the love that it deserves and over the past week all of our TF2 servers have undergone quite a few changes, some servers more so. Our GFL TF2 servers used to be high profile servers that everyone once used to play. 32/32 players on all servers all the time and it was a struggle to get onto the servers to play. Now, it’s not so much the case. We, the TF2 Staff team, will get us back there eventually.


Me and Mercer Frey have been very busy working on revamping TF2. We’ve been focusing on both the current servers and the current staff we have. The staff is more of an internal thing but our servers have been our biggest focus and have had the biggest changes made to them.


Currently we have 5 servers. Orange X3, Mario Kart 1 plus a new Combat Surf server and two servers that have been completely redone. The latter three will be the main focus of this article.

Our old Mario Kart 2+3 server has been split up! The original maps have been merged with Mario Kart 1 and the server has been repurposed as a TF2 Competitive Pub server. The server will be running a rotation of Valve, Community made and UGC League maps that people can vote on and have some great fun with all the great perks we can offer those who become Members or Donators. Oh, don’t forget the no adverts because who really likes adverts?

Our Combat Surf server was originally a test that Roy had set out to see what sort of popularity game modes such as Surfing could achieve. Over the duration that the server has been up, it has quickly rose the ranks and gained a steady population. It was decided that the server was doing pretty well and that with a bit of work it could achieve far more than it currently is. The server is currently running the map ‘surf_10x_tf2_complete’.


If you’re a fan of both PvP and Surfing then our Combat Surf server is sure to give you a great time either by yourself or with a few friends! Come and give the Combat Surf server a go!

Last but not least. Our old Balloon Race server was completely stripped and built up from scratch into a brand new TF2Ware server. Have you ever heard of WarioWare before? Well, this is what TF2Ware is based on! TF2 Mini Games! A series of 50 fast paced Mini Games along with 10 Special Modes, 10 Boss games and a small competitive atmosphere will keep you entertained for hours upon hours! Join up with all of your friends and have some great fun!


If you haven’t heard of this mod before then I strongly urge you to look into and read the links I will provide below. The game mode is truly something that will amaze you. Come and check it out! Perfect for all skill levels and ages.






And of course we still have our Orange X3 server and Mario Kart 1 server that I strongly urge you to pay a visit too as well!


TF2 Steam Page


GFL has their own Steam Page so why not have one for ourselves? Come and join our TF2 steam group for easy access on all the up-to date information about our TF2 servers! Don’t forget to invite your friends!




Can’t wait to see you all on the battlefield!




TF2Ware coming back is awesome, well done Snoopy and Mercer. 


I suggest all of you guys check it out, its ALOT of fun.

TF2Ware was my favorite community mode from the game, back when I used to play. It really is a ton of fun, and I hope the work you guys have done, as a whole, pays off. 

I am willing to try to help and populate TF2 servers as possible when I can. Great to know about new servers, though

Woot woot. Cannot wait to see TF2 be revived from the dead. I really enjoy playing TF2 with friends. Can be a lot of fun with some people.

You should really see about the TF2 zombie mod it's great gamemode

We've used that mod before, and it hasn't exactly worked as well as we would've hoped. Great suggestion, though. Glad someone remembers it.

TF2 is great and all, but when is valve releasing TF3 on source 2 engine. Then imagine the server possibilities.

That's very unlikely.
If they're going to make any sequel, it's going to be half life 3

I see the TF2 community has been left in the best of care. Great job to Snoopy, Mercer Frey, and the rest of the admin team. Best of luck to you all.

Mostly likely be  the same as it was before

I love team fortress so even more gfl  :help:  :help:  :help:  :help:  :help:  :help:  :help:  :help:  :music:

how do i join the grup

how do i join the grup

how do i join the grup

Instead of spamming and bumping, click the steam group link in the thread. Then click that shiny blue button that says "Join group" or something like that. If it doesn't have that button means that either you're banned from the group or you did not sign onto the browser steam site.
I was a fan of Wario Ware back in the day. Even tho I have not played TF2 in a while I really want to check out the TF2Ware it's sounds pretty fun.

this is great :3

MORE GFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read this, and the server has 0 players? Lmao

The implementation of a thumbs-down button would be good for condescending, negative posts like yours.

Last time I looked there was about 18 people on Combat Surf, 10 people on TF2Ware, 12 people on Orange X3 and 5 people on Mario Kart..

Also rankings say a lot as well since these servers were all 2k-3k when I posted this thread

Orange EU: 1760
TF2Ware: 1688
Combat Surf: 1424

Haven't played TF2 in a while, might have to start again now!
