This.

aegisfate I'm not an idiot, I played TF2 on the PC for well over a year before quitting. I picked favorite servers at a certain point and stuck to them; I utilized the highly versatile lobby system as much as possible.

But even the decent ones weren't <24 players, as Mogh mentions. Pretty much nobody likes to play in small games on TF2 for some reason. I looked for <24 player servers on numerous occasions and it often yielded no fruit.

Yeah, I don't really understand that either. For me a gamesize of 12 or at most 14-16 players is the way to play TF2, but I guess the masses prefer games with more chaos, spam and a bigger element of chance.
My favorite class is Medic and that can really be difficult to play in 24 player servers. So many enemies to avoid, and so many allies to heal (all of which can turn out to be a Spy too!). As I said before, fortunately there's TF2Lobby, or I likely would never play in a 12-player game.

I think every weapon in TF2 could be the best. It depends if you know how to use it well ...

Why? Have you actually found a server without lag and premium? Also, it would seem you haven't seen what valve has done to the tf2 canon and style.

There is so much more to it.And ive played plenty of servers without lag and premium.The console version has alot more lag because of the hosts.Makes me think of modern warfare.Then if the host quits, the server just gets shut down.I also play alot of cool custom user created maps like saxton hale, balloon race, prop hunt, mario kart.I find that the xbox version gets boring and repetitive.The server list is also getting smaller and smaller.

Never played the PC version , but as someone who has played in most half life 2 maps , I think xbox is still pretty decent . there are 30 something or more HL2 maps . most dont usually work but the ones that do are a nice change of pace from the endless 2fort and dustbowl that has become the 360 TF2 .

Canon: Nothing is worse. The game has a better story now.

Artstyle: Paint is the only thing that stinks. The PC's superior gameplay makes up for that.

Lag: Every game on 360 lags for me, and I have a great connection.
PC is fine if you don't join a game with 300 ping.

Premium: Stay off of Nighteam and Saigns and you're fine.

There we are.

Someone want to go to a discussion. Please then explain why the heavy is wearing a totally non-russian native american hat and the soldier a kabuto?
