Nine mercenaries. Two teams. Guns. And hats. Welcome to Team Fortress 2, where psychopaths fight each other with shotguns, rocket launchers, pistols, baseball bats, surgical equipment, laser guns, and wear fancy hats.
According to webcomics created by Valve, the formation of the Red and Blu teams spawned over a land dispute between two brothers, Redmond and Blutarch, over plots of land bequethed to them by their deceased father, and has since persisted for over 100 years.
Dear Lord! This is Blutarch Mann speaking!
Redmond Mann: And Redmond.
Blutarch Mann: Shut up, Redmond, I'm praying! Lord, please send my brother to hell. Amen.
Redmond Mann: Lord, wait! Whatever he's praying to you for, I'll double it.
Blutarch Mann: No!
Redmond Mann: Ha ha ha ha! I win at praying, brother.
According to the calendars in both the RED and BLU bases, the game is set in June 1968. However, the calendars (which run Monday - Sunday, rather than Sunday - Saturday) show June starting on a Wednesday, when in fact it began on a Saturday that year. The nearest year with June starting on a Wednesday is 1966.
