Valve’s announced plans to launch a Team Fortress 2 scoring system in an effort to flag and delete poor servers from the game.


  • New servers start with a score of 0 points
  • Each time a player connects to a server, it loses 15 points
  • For each minute the player stays on the server, it earns 1 point (up to a max of 45 points per player)

“In short,” said Valve’s Robin Walker, “servers that have lots of players joining & leaving rapidly will score badly. Servers that consistently have players join and stay on for long periods of time will score well.”

Really bad servers may be deleted.
