Has anyone started adding info on the new update and expiration date? I'm not really able to edit easily on mobile, just thought I'd bring it up.
09:52:28 PM Dec 10th 2014
More importantly, how does this site cover End of the Line?
03:08:09 AM Dec 11th 2014
Clarify the question, please?
05:49:52 AM Jan 17th 2014

There's speculation of a new update, and a new ARG.
05:44:50 PM Dec 27th 2013
I don't know if it's gone or what, but a while ago there was this really cool Fanfic and sequel told in the First Person of the RED Spy. The medic was addicted to chocolate, the scout hit people in the head with his bat. And there was this really big Conspiracy thing. It used to be on If anyone knows what it was called so I can dig through backlogs to find it, that'd be great.

Maybe it's just on my end, but I can't seem to see the 'Main' button up amongst the other buttons when i'm on any of the sub-pages. Is that normal?
12:47:47 AM May 29th 2013
Yes. The "main" button only shows up when there's a page in the Main/ namespace, e.g. a redirect from Main/ to Videogame/. Here, there is no redirect, so there's nothing in Main/ and no "main" button.

To get back to the central videogame page from the subpages, find the "videogame" link in the subpage list on the left column of the wiki page.

Why is the main page locked instead of being a redirect to the videogame namespace?
02:44:26 AM Nov 20th 2012
Unneeded Main/ redirects are being cut to encourage people not to use them.

This may just be me, but I feel like Mann Vs. Machine is closer to Tower Defense than The War Sequence.
09:52:03 PM Oct 2nd 2012
Tower Defense involves, ya know, a variety of Towers that the players can set up and manage. Two kinds of Sentries (which only certain players can deploy) just isn't enough for that trope

Technically MvM is Hold the Line, but Attack/Defend already potholed to that trope, so I was left with The War Sequence as the closest approximation

Out of curiosity, why is TF2's Tear Jerker page locked?
09:18:11 AM Aug 20th 2012
You can ask in Wiki Talk for an unlock.
08:06:41 AM Sep 26th 2012
I think it's locked because the only examples would be from fan-made material.
08:04:27 PM Jul 5th 2012
I'm not entirely sure where to place it, or if it's even warranted, but TF 2 (well, the TF 2 Team's post announcing the Pyromania update) provides the page quote for Men Without Hats
02:25:20 PM Mar 24th 2012
Unlikely that updates will ever come to PS3. EA owns the rights to it, and the only update it's gotten in the 4 years it's been out is a single patch that was released in 2008. Remove the statement?
09:53:36 AM Jan 30th 2012
Well, I am just fresh from relocating ALL Team Fortress 2 wicks to the VideoGame/ namespace. I'm wondering what to do about the nine others which are either "invisible" or found in locked pages...
11:21:12 PM Feb 13th 2012
Impressive! Guess nothing can be done about archived pages.
10:39:37 PM Oct 8th 2011
Don't like the implications that the fans who enjoy shipping don't play the game- I've seen female fans who have several hundred hours logged on TF 2 and play at near-competitive levels who still proceed to ship the characters together.

Hey, guys! According to this Wikipedia article, a flamethrower with propane has a very limited range.

Could that make Pyro's short-range flamethrowers a Justified Trope? After all, two out of three of them actually have propane tanks...
06:58:22 AM Aug 9th 2011
Do we seriously need the Audience tab any more now that we have a Trivia and a YMMV namespace?
10:22:17 AM Aug 9th 2011

I suggest moving the tropes and Cut Listing the page.
11:04:17 AM Jul 27th 2011
Can I politely ask who removed the mention of the Troper servers why they did it? The old games had a mention on the page and nobody removed that.

Maybe I'm biased because I pay for the servers.
09:33:55 AM Jun 24th 2011 the free version worth it, despite the drawbacks?
01:54:10 PM Jun 27th 2011

The free version doesn't have any "drawbacks", per se - it's pretty much the same as the retail version. There are a grand total of five differences:

  • Free has 50 backpack slots to start with, Paid has 300.
  • Free will only drop "standard" items (i.e., achievement weapons and common drops), Paid drops the rarer items too.
  • Free has limited blueprint access for crafting items (though I'm not sure if the limit is X number of blueprints, Y classes of items, or a mix of both).
  • Free accounts can only receive items (so you can't send someone a gift or exchange items in trades).

As the official FAQ ( ) says:


(By the by, I suspect that the Allegedly Free Game trope is being misused here - they're generally "free to play, pay to win". The free version of TF 2 can be won without shelling out money, providing you define "winning" as "kicking the other team's ass", and not "unlocking every single map and character and getting every single item" - especially as the former is impossible, since they're all already present.)

Confusion Fu is using random, erratic, unpredictable moves and attacks. This isn't that, it's something else. And please read Example Indentation.

  • Confusion Fu: The Spy's primary power lies in his disguises and cloak, which lets him perform some nasty tricks.
    • Also one of the primary uses for the Scout's "Bonk! Atomic Punch" drink, distracting enemy players or sentries.

The fact that just "Team Fortress" redirects to this page Headscratchers. Someone needs to make an article for the original mod for Quake.

Fridge Brilliance: The windows in the Mac release trailer are subtly colored the same way as the Windows logo and even bend the same way providing you compare the XP/Vista/7 logo. (That last part is more obvious.)

From the page:

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Near the end of the new Engineer Comic. Engi's been his usual friendly, quiet self up until he is physically threatened, at which point he calmly dishes out the largest amount of badassery yet seen in the canon, in a single sentence:
    Engineer: I appreciate that you're my employer, and an old man besides... but if you don't take your goddamn hands off me I will break you in HALF.

So threatening the elderly is cool now?
07:34:17 PM Jul 24th 2010
An unlikable, immortal corporate scumbag who as electrocuting him? Its defensible.
12:44:06 PM Oct 1st 2010
Broken Fanbase should be added for the polycount update
08:44:47 AM Oct 2nd 2010
The fanbase isn't just broken- It been downright cut in half with a ubersaw, then covered in jarate.
10:36:47 PM Oct 8th 2011
There's also an apple with a bite taken out of it on the tree beforehand, plus "Jobbs' Orchards". It's a subtle nod to both OS'es.
