Yes, TFC is back
Yes there are spots for you to play in our clan system
Yes we'd love to have you onboard - no matter how rusty you are.

Please read Apoc's TFC Pedia for more updated information:

A few things.
TFC has updated to 'steampipe' meaning it redistributes where tfc is installed inside steamapps. When it does this - it deletes your TFC directory and creates a fresh one.
If you have an old TFC directory full of cfgs / models / sprites / xhairs / textures - those will be removed.
SO, back up your TFC directory before you open TFC for the first time.
Then - copy your old TFC directory over the top of the new one (in common\halflife\tfc)

Add these cvars to your autoexec.cfg or userconfig.cfg
cl_mousegrab 1
fps_override 1
developer 1
fps_max 125 ---(or whatever you want)
gl_vsync "0"

You also need to uncheck HD models, and check low gfx. (sometimes you need to join a server first and have the grenade.mdl error show, then you check then uncheck HD models again - sounds funny but it works, gg steampipe)

IF however you've got a new pc, and you're installing a fresh TFC - that's fine.

Here's some helpful threads.

HOW DO I FIND A GAME?:
There are TFC games going every single night, usually in our newly preferred 4v4 format.
Either contact the people above to join one, or just join the server - the pw is usually 4v4.
There are also FIVE(now 8) useable servers, so feel free to create second third or fourth games simultaneously.

HOW DO I USE THE PUGBOT?
Thankfully our lord and savoir (Seraphim) has developed some software which controls pugs, it's called the pugbot!
The pugbot has a database of every player who's played in a pugbot managed game.
This database is updated with a panel of experienced TFC players who give every player a rating. The ratings are then used to create "even/fair" pug teams based on who is participating.
If you're new back to the game, DO NOT WORRY ABOUT LETTING A PUG TEAM DOWN, the pugbot knows you're new back, and will adjust the teams accordingly to ensure that your team has the best chance of a fair match even if you're a rusty old bastard.
Join Delay:
The pugbot has a join delay feature.
The join delay feature allows players who didn't play in the previous pug 10 seconds to join a new pug before the players who played in previous pug are eligible to join.
Wait around for a pug to finish, and when it does you'll have 10 seconds to secure your spot before the people who played in the previous pug can join - giving everyone a chance to play pugs.

Helpful commands for using the pugbot:
Enter these commands by using the say bind (usually default as y, but it's just bind key say)
!j = Join the pug
!teams = pugbot says who's on which team
!map mapname = voting for maps when voting for maps commences
!scores = pugbot says the current score for the pug (great way to check if it's the first half)
timeleft = pugbot says the current timeleft of the map (used in conjunction with !scores this is a great way to know when to be ready to !j the next pug).
!start 4v4 (or 2v2 or 3v3) = starts a pug with you as the admin

I REALLY SUCK NOW, GODDAMN I'M RUSTY:
Who cares? Ego days are gone, we're all older now (I think our youngest player is 25)
We want everyone who would like to play TFC to be involved.
There are some minimum requirements for enjoyment like bhopping, concing etc - but almost all ex-tfcers will have these skills.

I DONT HAVE THE SKILLS NUG JUST MENTIONED:
Spector and myself have offered personal advice or training to anyone who feels they require it. Be it basic TFC skills or updating advanced skills (alot of new concs and movement came about late in the game), we're always happy to help.

PLEASE come back to the game we love, you're welcome whoever you are.
If you're completely new and would like to give it a try - we'll try to train you up as well.

Pro-tip - to minimise effects on wrist damage, wearing something as simple as a sweatband for the wrist while playing pays off - not because of any sweat but because it cushions and compresses.
