Valve Cracking Down On Team Fortress 2 Gambling

Last year, Valve started dropping a hammer on gambling sites selling Counter-Strike items. This week, the same process has begun for Team Fortress 2.

In a short statement released online, Valve say that following the ban on CS stuff in 2016, “some gambling web sites [have] started leveraging TF2 items. Today we began the process of blocking TF2 gambling accounts as well. We recommend you don’t trade with these sites.”

Those sites, like the CS ones, are shady af. It’s a solid recommendation.

Really hoping Valve does something big with Team Fortress soon. TF3, port to source 2, massive overhaul etc

TF2 was my go to game for half a decade but i’ve found it hard to go back to since Overwatch came out.

I would give up all of my hats if it meant a new, amazing Team Fortress.
