TF2 and CSGO are very different games that appeal to different people. It might take away a little from the csgo community but honestly probably not all that much. TF2 had an economy before Gun Mettel (or whatever its called) you could already trade, buy and sell on the marketplace.

I doubt much if anything will change. They are very different games.

Yeah, I really don't think the skins thing is necessary, I don't like it to be honest

TF2 is not dying. The only thing that's dying is the economy. Key prices have skyrocketed since it went free to play.

I don't think anything will change for CSGO. With Source 2 and a redone Nuke coming up, I'd say CSGO is still growing.

Nothing will change. TF2 players will carry on as per usual and CSGO will continue to grow. Behind all the skins, lots of players were drawn in by the skins, but remain because the game is fun as fuck.

I think they're very different games, one centered around class interactions and fast movement and the other around player interactions and information gathering. They're both fun in different ways, but payload and de couldn't be more different.

Excited to see the update, but I'll still be moaning CSGO for the best future.

I think this is a great thing to be honest - considering how similar they have implemented things in TF2 to CS:GO they will learn lessons from one another. So TF2 starts off with all of the things Valve learned from CS but once things get going it's ultimately just more ideas in the pot for the CSGO team to choose from.

Basically - TF2 success is Valve success, and Valve success just helps CSGO grow.

Honestly, I don't think that they care enough about TF2 to develop new features for it then port them into CS:GO. They'd probably just develop them straight for CS:GO or Dota.

Well there is a TF2 team however small they are, and they are capable of coming up with new ideas on their own.

As others have said, they're different games which fill different niches.
The changes to one aren't going to massively affect the others, in fact you'll probably see more people just playing both.
On another note, skins helped the game grow in popularity, but it's not what is keeping it alive, the gameplay and competitive scene does that.
