yes! Download on Steam Store and pick a pub.

Or come to Quakenet IRC, #ff.pickup for pickups. (Pickup servers still in the upgrade process though I believe.)

Pickups need to take a 2 week vacation, just to let new players get used to things.

Er, do you mean pickups or pickup players? Because pickups don't really affect anyone who doesn't play them, and as for the players, I think since steam release, we've been coexisting in the pubs quite well so far.

What I meant was the players should populate the pub servers for a few weeks, to help introduce new players to the fun. I've been playing as much as I could, but I've got a lot of things going on.

The more we(as a community) welcome new players, and show them "the ropes", the more likely they are to stick around, and keep playing.

Do as the great oats does and play pubs while you wait for pickups to fill.

Also, don't be afraid to bring some newbs you've added to friends (you best be adding noobs and encouraging them to play... Ol' oats already has his own noob army ) into the pickup server to spectate some pickups. All the new players I've showed pugs to have gone crazy, they think its sick, Some have even gone back to the training and tried to get a gold medal... Then I tell them my best time is like 8 seconds

Gotta keep them mystified and inspired, I tell ya... Seeing crazy movement is inspiring to some people, not off putting.

The most inspiring thing about the Steam release is that even only a few days after release there are 202 reviews and the game still has a 9/10 rating.

That's very encouraging.

When I'm on a server, and someone asks a question... I do my best to answer it. We were all "n00bs" once, and we helped each other learn the game. Best way to keep new players, is to help them learn the ropes. Hell, I still do it in TFC. Pass on what we have learned, we must.
