We've known for almost a year that Valve have been planning to add competitive matchmaking to Team Fortress 2 [ official site ] buuut well, I imagine Valve got distracted chasing a squirrel in the park or something. After many months of staring at the tree the squirrel vanished up, Valve have shook off their coating of snow and come back indoors to crack on with TF2's competitive matchmaking. They don't have too much to say about it yet, such as when it'll properly launch, but closed testing is beginning within a week or so and you can sign up. Join this Steam group for a chance to try it early. Valve are prioritising people who have enabled the Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator, who have associated a phone number with their Steam account, and who either bought TF2 before it went free-to-play or who've bought an item from its in-game store. Valveteer Jill explains a little more about how the beta will work:.
Team Fortress 2 Competitive Beta

But how does it work? Players who purchased the game after it went free-to-play, and have not yet made a purchase in the in-game store will apparently not be able to play the beta. There is, however, no mention of whether this restriction, or any of the above restrictions will stay in play once Competitive Matchmaking exits beta and makes it to the full game. Starting next week, random members of the Team Fortress 2 Competitive Beta group will get a Competitive Matchmaking Beta Pass, granting them access to the beta. Valve will also be holding stress-test events, in which group members will be invited to participate without a pass for the duration of the event.
