Team Fortress 2 Competitive Beta

Team Fortress 2 Competitive Beta was revealed by Valve Corporation a couple of weeks ago where the highly anticipated competitive mode is to be tested. Now, the developers have started sharing details on exactly what they plan to do with it.

The developers say that although everyone wants to get in on the testing, they are just at the stage one of the whole thing which means a selection of people will get through and participate in the beta.

More testers will be added with the passage of time but for now, a number of group members will be randomly selected and given the Competitive Matchmaking Beta Pass, if you get the pass now, you get to play Team Fortress 2 Competitive Beta now!

Our plan is to start small and increase participation as we go. For this initial phase of testing – which will begin in the next week or so – we’ll be gradually granting random members from this group an in-game item called a Competitive Matchmaking Beta Pass. Once you’ve been granted a pass you will have ongoing access to the beta.

Other than that, scheduled and unscheduled stress-tests will also be held during which a larger number of people will be brought onboard for a temporary period of time.

Although the selection of beta testers is going to be random, Valve Corporation says that everyone should meet the following requirements in order to be eligible for participation:

  • Have either purchased a copy of Team Fortress 2 prior to June 23, 2011, or have made a purchase from the Mann Co. Store. (AKA premium accounts)
  • Have Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator enabled. ( https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8625-WRAH-9030 )
  • Have a phone number associated with your Steam account ( https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8625-WRAH-9030#addphone )

This is all good, but right now we don’t know if they are talking about adding people to the Team Fortress 2 Competitive Beta in dozens, hundreds or thousands. Check back for more on that later.
