Seriously? Protf2? Filled with incompetent players who just want to have unusuals. Play something better, like ducksoup.

Well, I suggest tf2lobby.com as a starting out tool. Just know the basics. Don't always try to go for the medic. Crouch at the beginning of the round. Use, Scattergun, Pistol, and Boston Basher.
Also, MGE is great. If you can find somebody who plays tf2lobby, then that's great, I guess I could help you if you add me on steam.

P.S. That was some terrible grammar.

Thanks for the help, I'll play some TF2 Lobby but I have some questions, why would should I crouch and why the Boston Basher? Thanks for the answers so far.

Crouch because you go higher when Rocket or Sticky jumping, can get over higher ledges, and because it makes it easier to do certain trickstabs. Also easier to surf an explosion when juggled and you take less explosive damage from a crouchjump than just a jump, at the cost of being flung farther.

Boston Basher because for the cost of a bit of HP you can do something like a Quintuple jump as Scout. I personally prefer the Atomizer, but the Boston Basher is a good pressure-putter-onner if you use it as a weapon from ambush, and the Atomizer is...not.

That's not really the main reason... main reason is for building uber.

Though I personally MGE more than Lobby, in my experience, it's very rare for a Medic to need to heal a Scout for Uber

That's just a public game. Try playing a pug (pick-up game) which is like a 6v6 but with randoms. You also need to know your role. Knowing who to pick as a scout, covering flanks and dealing with other scouts & protecting your demoman, medic, soldiers & any utility class. You also need to communicate with your team & work with your scout partner.

some websites for comp :
North America : http://esea.net/
http://www.teamwarfare.com/
http://www.ugcleague.com/
http://www.cevo.com/

Europe : http://etf2l.org/

Asia : http://asiafortress.com/

NZ : http://nzfortress.com

Australia/Oceania : http://ozfortress.com/

Go here: http://tf2lobby.com/

Play a random 6v6 match.

If you're not at the bottom of scoreboard, you're ready.

I don't think ONE pug makes you good enough for competitive team fortress 2. You should play a few and get more familiar of your role. As a scout, you may be forced to play an utility (pyro, heavy, engineer, sniper or spy).

You may have to go pyro/heavy when maybe your team got wiped on badlands spire and they have the uber advantage and your whole team gets pushed back to last. You should either go pyro or heavy to stop them from getting past.

As a pyro, you should obviously airblast them away and maybe use the soldier/demoman's rockets/pipes to knock them away. A heavy is good for tanking damage and making them waste a few seconds of their ubercharge. An engineer isn't always a good choice unless you have a good amount of time to set-up. (In this case, your team was wiped so the other team will push quickly)

You should go sniper if their team plays a sniper. Why? If not, the other sniper can have pretty much the time of his life scoping in, charging up & taking a shot.

Spy can be useful to drop their medic's ubercharge. Your team may rebuild at last. Their team may have similar % of uber, so it would be a good time to run a spy to drop their uber to gain uber advantage, which is a HUGE advantage.

Try Tf2lobby. ProTf2 servers show nothing. How many hours have you played OP?
