For those of you not totally familiar with TF2, or even online gaming, you may be unaware of the concept of tick rate. In simple terms, a tick is when a server completes an instruction set. This can be collecting and calculating different events caused by players or physics objects, how they’ll cause other parts of the game to react, and then send those calculations back to the players. Every time a server performs that set, it has undergone one tick.
A server’s tick rate is measured in Hertz (Hz), however, most mentions usually just use the number. This means that for each second, a server undergoes a certain amount of ticks. So on a 64-tick server, each second of time the server goes through that entire instruction set 64 times. The more ticks per second each server, the more instruction sets it can go through, providing more accurate physics, movement and hit registration during games.
It’s not only servers that are rated through tick rates. The player’s own PC has a tick rate as well, referred to as a “client-side tick rate.” This is set by the user, and effectively does the opposite of what the server does, by sending out the data, calculations and input performed on the user’s PC
For the purposes of this article, we’ll focus on the differences between the two main values used in TF2, 64 and 128 tick. On the official matchmaking servers hosted by Valve, the servers are exclusively operated on a 64 Hz tick rate. If you compete in tournaments or Pick-Up Game (PUGs) on services like ESEA or FACEIT, then you'll be playing on 128 tick servers. Simply put, 128 tick servers offer double the processing time. With twice the processing time, the accuracy of your weapons will be higher meaning it’s more likely that every bullet will count.
The most noticeable difference between the two server tick rates is when throwing grenades. There’s multiple examples of grenade line-ups that require jumping or running, which don’t work when you move up or down server tick rates. The reason why is that due to the doubled amount of processing time, the server logs the release at a different time meaning the trajectory will be different, so the grenade will land and activate at a different time.
However, the vast majority of people would probably be unable to tell the difference between different server tick rates. In a study performed on the main TF2 subreddit, it revealed that out of 760 unique participants (creating 1165 guesses) only 41.3% of people correctly guessed when they were on a 128-tick server. As with most things in TF2, going up to 128 tick only appears to be more of a psychological difference than having any concrete effect for most players.
This feeling can be revealed in the decision making from other game developers. The only competitive FPS titles that account for servers up to 128 tick are TF2 and VALORANT, with most other big name titles offering much lower tick rate servers. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare runs its main multiplayer servers at either 12 or 22 tick, Overwatch currently runs at 60.25 tick.
While it may sound fantastic to raise the tick rate on every server to as high as they can go, it isn’t that simple. A number of other factors and variables all tie into game performance beyond whatever the tick rate of the server you’re playing on is.
A huge, and very noticeable, variable of server performance is your latency to a server, more commonly referred to as ping. In LAN environments, where professional players tend to ply their trade the majority of the time, the latency to the server is as low as it possibly can be, thus allowing for the most accurate experience in gameplay.
Another more subtle variable is your monitor’s refresh rate. While the player’s PC and the server are communicating either 64 or 128 times per second, the player themselves may not be able to notice any difference. The most popular monitor refresh rates for competitive play are 60 Hz, 120 Hz and 144 Hz, and similarly to the same concept of servers, the higher the value the more times per second your monitor refreshes.
While the server tick rate and monitor refresh rates aren’t directly connected, having the latter higher is still important to your gameplay. This is due to client side animations being smoother, limiting screen tearing and other lag effects, meaning on your end you’d have a more accurate game experience.

First you need to know TF2 utilizes two CPU threads. One is the main game thread and the other is the networking thread. A thread can use about 100% CPU. We advise people start out with the 100% CPU Deal..
This thread does most of the core stuff in the game, including handling all the addons. This will normally be working the hardest of the two. It's common for this thread to be sitting at around ~60% CPU on busy servers.
The networking thread normally uses up about ~15% on a busy server, but if you leverage it correctly it will work pretty hard. To really take advantage of this thread you need a map properly setup with area portals (PVS).

In Team Fortress 2, two teams compete for a combat-based objective. In the game's storyline, the teams are composed of mercenaries hired by two feuding brothers to protect the company assets belonging to one brother while trying to destroy those of the other; the teams are thus represented by the names of these companies: Reliable Excavation & Demolition (RED) and Builders League United (BLU). Players can choose to play as one of nine character classes in these teams, each with his own unique strengths, weaknesses, and weapons. In order to accomplish objectives efficiently, a balance of these classes is required due to how these strengths and weaknesses interact with each other in a team-based environment. Although the abilities of a number of classes have changed from earlier Team Fortress incarnations, the basic elements of each class have remained, that being one primary weapon, one secondary weapon, and one melee weapon. The game was released with six official maps, although over 100 maps have since been included in subsequent updates, including competitive remakes of older maps and community-assembled maps. When players choose a gamemode for the first time, an introductory video shows how to complete its objectives. During matches, the "Administrator", a woman voiced by Ellen McLain, announces various game events over loudspeakers.The player limit is 16 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. On the PC, in 2008 Valve updated the game to include a server variable that allows up to 32 players.
Below are some of the factors to consider before renting a TF2 server host.
This the sole point of getting a TF2 server in the first place. TF2 can be hard and frustrating! Or what else do you expect it's a post-apocalyptic survival game. Therefore if you are a new TF2 player you have to play the single-player and get the hang of it first before considering the multiplayer mode and renting a server. You get the hang of how to build a decent base, explore the map, and pick up some survival, crafting, and hunting strategies.
you'd need to figure out the best tricks to use in order to survive. So that in case you playing with friends you won't be the laughing stock all the time.
But once you’ve survived your first few challenges and you’ve got some good building ideas, multiplayer makes TF2 a lot more fun! So playing on a public server means you have no control of your stuff when you are offline. people can delete trash or even stealing your lot. so this factors in the need for renting a private TF2 server which you can share with friends and monitor who has access to what by setting rules and permissions.
Before you rent a game server you have to consider the number of players that will join the game server. Most game hosting server providers sell game by game slots. more slots will cost you more money. But this is not the case with us. At Xgamingserver we sale dedicated resources for your game server. The video below would clearly explain our pricing model.
So before you get a server hosting for your TF2 consider the number of players who will join the server you. you can check out our TF2 pricing here. With a 2 day free trial.
Plain vanilla TF2 can be boring. You would need a server hosting provider that will let you add mods to your server. I explained how you can install TF2 Mods to your server in our previous post.
Not all game servers support mods! If you don’t want to restrict your server to Vanilla TF2 in the future, or you know you want to create a modded TF2 server, then you need to check that your potential server host supports mod installation.
Some server control panels offer a one-click mod install system. If you’re sure you want the freedom of adding mods then this is the easiest option. You will be able to install addons from their built-in mod manager or take advantage of the range of mods available through the Steam Workshop. This generally means less messing around with the control panel and more game time. Some game server hosts support mods but you need to use FTP to install the mods yourself. Other companies offer a drop-down menu with a limited number of the most popular mods, like Starvation, Darkness Falls, and War of the Walkers. The ability to add mods sometimes comes at an extra cost.
this is the time it takes to transmit a small data set from your computer to the server and back to your computer. Normally measured in milliseconds. The ping time is a very important indicator for online games. Therefore the location of the gaming servers plays a critical role in the fluidity of your gameplay. Lower pings means that your TF2 game will be smooth.
At Xgamingserver we have tow server locations United states and in Europe. Those are our major client locations currently but we hope to expand to more locations in the next six months.
TF2 servers can run on consoles, PC, and Linux. At the moment console server gaming for TF2 is limited so for the best experience we advise using PC gaming. Which supports both multiplayer: Survival (both randomly generated and standard) and Creative modes.
So running TF2 on a PC? Let's hook you up with server hosting and enjoy multiplayer with you TF2 community
This is an important factor when it comes to choosing your game server control panel. Most gaming server companies use the TCadmin or multicraft panels which are not customized. At Xgamingserver we've based our TF2 game control panel on the Pterodactyl panel.
Which the developers prioritize security, and the control panel includes password hashing, two-factor authentication, and HTTPS as standard. One of the most interesting design and security decisions made by the developers is Docker support. All game servers run in Docker containers, providing excellent control over resources, improved security, and environments tailored to the needs of each game.
The online gaming and e-sports sector is one of the main targets of DDoS attacks. As a result, it is essential for hosting platforms to be permanently protected against these frequent, massive threats. So when choosing your game hosting provider for TF2, It is important to ensure that their servers are protected for DDos attacks. At xgamingserver, all our servers are DDOS protected so you don't have to worry about that.
Price is an important factor when selecting a game server. Expensive servers do not necessarily mean good performance. At Xgamingserver we sell game servers according to dedicated resources. You pay what you get.
Good customer support is essential when choosing a host for your TF2 server. At some point, you're guaranteed to need to contact them with an issue of some kind. Before you sign up with them, it helps to know how responsive they are to customer inquiries. Check their website for contact options to make sure there is a contact method that suits you. In addition to the usual ticket system, do they offer chat services or email support? Maybe they have a Discord server you can join? You could even try contacting them to ask a few questions and judge their professionalism and response time before signing up.
If you’re new to game server hosting, or you're not sure your potential host offers the services you need, it might be worthwhile asking them if they'll create a test server for you to trial. Hosts won't always advertise the possibility of a trial, but if you contact them you might be surprised by their willingness to provide a test service. If a trial isn't possible, you need to be clear on their refund policy (often called “money back guarantee”).
