Turns out, not everybody was too happy about Valve turning Team Fortress 2 free to play. According to a report from Botchweed, a user-made server plug-in has been implemented in several private servers that effectively locks out players with a free to play account. Once a player has bought the game – getting a Premium account – or an item from the in-game store, they are granted access to any server using the modification. It’s worth nothing that this is a user creation with no official validation – or any word at all so far – from Valve.
