Finally, after multiple years of problems, Valve seem to be getting back on the horse for Team Fortress 2 development to deal with the big bot problem.
All across Twitter recently there's been a big storm from TF2 fans about the issue, as Valve has seemingly ignored it for quite some time now. It was getting hard to come across posts about anything to do with Steam and Valve that didn't have players complaining about it. Rightly so, it's a huge problem, bots have been ruining the game.
Valve took to Twitter to the official TF2 account to say this:
TF2 community, we hear you! We love this game and know you do, too. We see how large this issue has become and are working to improve things.
That's the first Twitter post from the TF2 team in years, and the official TF2 website hasn't said anything about the issues.
Considering TF2 is one of the games that helped to push Steam's popularity, and continues to this day being one of the most popular games on Steam, hopefully Valve really will actually solve it this time. They tried a few times across 2020 and 2021 to deal with it, but all they did is slow the bots down for a while and they all came back in force.
