TF2Lobby.com (tf2lb) aims to make it easier for players to arrange pickup games as well as make the format appealing and more accessible to a wider swath of the TF2 player base. Pickup games have traditionally been arranged through inaccessible or otherwise unintuitive methods, and tf2lb attempts to address those issues, giving anyone the ability to organize a game without admin intervention.
Central to tf2lb is its namesake Lobby, where up to 12 players can join, easily specify a match config, and set their teams/classes. tf2lb automatically launches TF2 and connects you to an appropriate server. Whether or not you have access to a server, tf2lb can help. For those without a server, we have a pool of over 40 US and EU servers ready for public use, generously provided by Valve and other communities.
tf2lb has been in development for the past two weeks, and after extensive testing and feedback, we're ready to unroll it to a larger audience. We're providing limited information now to better observe and get feedback on how new users interact with the site. To get started, visit http://tf2lobby.com and click on the "Sign Up" link at the top-right. To learn more about the site, visit http://tf2lobby.com/about .
We're constantly improving the site and welcome any feedback you may have at feedbackATtf2lobbyDOTcom or in this thread. While anything is possible in the future of tf2lb, at the moment we are looking to refine current capabilities rather than to add new ones, so please focus any feedback accordingly.
