Which Came First?
Posted 26 February 2012 - 02:09 PM
In my particular case liked ponies long before playing TF2 for the first time (at least half a year). I can say though that while I probably would have played TF2 for a while without the PF2 severs, they are sort of what keep me playing. Itâ€™s nice to have a regular set of servers to join where you can get to know most of the players.

I was playing TF2 one day and I just so happened to join a Dustbowl server. One this Dustbowl server, people were talking about Ponies. I was like, "Ponies have really been getting popular lately."
I played on this server for a little while, until someone brought up "Cupcakes".After that, I heard so many people saying how horrible it was, how they hated it, and how sickened they were after reading it. Naturally, it peaked my interest and I sought out this "Cupcakes".
I found it, read it, and was all like "Okay, I'm gonna give the show a try". I then looked up the first three episodes on Youtube, and from there on, it's history.
Yes, Cupcakes got me to liking Ponies. Perhapes the most unlikely thing to get someone interested in Ponies.

thread: how do you find bronies in your school = pf2

That out of the way, I had discovered ponies around the same time that I started playing TF2. Both of these startedfrom memebase, when I saw they had added a new section, My Little Brony. There, I saw TF2/MLP crossovers, and started watching episodes and gameplay videos on youtube. By episode 7, I knew there was no turning back, and that I was no longer watching it out of curiosity of it's phenomenal popularity, but because I genuinely enjoyed it.
In that same general time (early-mid august, 2011) the TF2 gameplay videos I was watching were fascinating to me in the fact that it seemed that people weren't so serious and goofed around a lot, unlike certain other games *cough* CoD *cough* and that was just the type of game for me, seeing as whnever I went if to my cousin's house an we played Halo 3 on live (my 360 was borked and I never cared for paying to play games online ) we made it our goal to see how quickly we could get kicked from a server for killing our teammates. The videos that solidified my interest in TF2 were mostly greifing vids, but mainly one in particular. So I downloaded steam and TF2 on August 4, 2011. Played around on random servers for a while, types 'pony' in the server search bar out of boredom, played on a My Little Mercenaries server, wasn't that great, so i went on in my search and found Pony Fortress 2: Appleoosa (I think that's the first one I found... ) on August 17, and the rest is history. I loved the people, the micspam, all of it. I wanted to know what was this place, filled with so many wonders, casting the spell that I was then under. So I joined the forums on October 3. Never having been one for forums, I had no intention of being very active here, but clearly that's not what happened.
oh, here's the main video that got me into TF2, which ironically enough, has beeen sent to me on multiple occasions stating that I was in it.

Sometime in late August 2011, I saw the video of Pinkies no fear song, and then another, and another, and more after that. At some point, I went back to a Youtube channel that I used to like, Masterlinkx, and saw that pretty much everything of his that I enjoyed was replaced by ponies. At that point, I`m thinking to myself "Jeez, what is it with all of this pony stuff? Is it really that good?" I watched the first 6 or so episodes that night, and enjoyed every second of it.
Eventually I just typed pony into the server search bar, saw that there were multiple servers under the name Pony Fortress 2, and decided that this was where I was going to play from now on.

Then around late July, I started seeing pony stuff pop up everywhere, and I just tossed it aside.
Then is mid-August, it came back to me, so I decided to check it out. Enjoyed every part of it.
A couple weeks later I wondered if there were any pony tf2 servers, so I typed "pony" in the search bar, and here I am.

So yeah, 3rd option is best for me. TF2 and Ponies came first, then I found PF2
