The Highlander Mix-up Match

Date September 2, 2010

Due to suspected DDOS attacks, the match will be postponed to a later date. We will work together with Valve to make sure that the same thing doesn’t happen again. We were thrilled by the number of spectators who showed up, and we hope to see you again next time!

As previously announced, we’re kicking off the Highlander Community Challenge with a fantastic Exhibition game that will hopefully be a glimpse of the great matches to come! Combining the merry forces of the makers of our beloved game Valve, the pub community and the pro players, make sure you tune in to watch what will be simply epic TF2 action. Someone taunt-kill Robin Walker, pretty please?

    Yeah, that’ll help against a ddos.

    “Canceled, waste of 3 hours getting there an hour early to get a spot on the Source TV. Hopping for a reschedule.”

    There will be plenty of slots, no need to get in early.

    A required update to Team Fortress 2 is now available. Please run hldsupdatetool to receive the update. The specific changes include:

    Engine (CS:S, DoD:S, TF2):
    - Fixed a server crash caused by spamming the server with invalid rcon passwords.

    Team Fortress 2:
    - Fixed a bug in the Steamworks internal stats reporting.

    Quick, someone force valve to play the next match with a single core low frequency cpu!

    Next time:

    Server must have lost connetion to steam, this way valve will implement auto reconnect.
