Bazillion and the Beta

Date December 4, 2010

MNM#7 signups now open! [Link]

Yesterday, the official TF2 beta project started. Naturally, we love this update which focuses on gameplay improvements and we think it would be great to have the ETF2L and its community supporting the project. To start off, we have opened a TF2 Beta Forum Section. This forum section will be heavily moderated and will hopefully provide a good representation of (high level) competitive play. At first the forum will be limited to a select few threads. Remember to add the section to your forum preferences in your profile if you wish for threads in the forum to show up in “recent posts”.

Additionally, we are looking to run The Experimental Ordnance Cup #3 next Wednesday,  8th of December. The exact format of the cup is still being worked out, as beta match servers are still rare. The full details will be published next Tuesday, but we can already say that Granary will definitely be played as (one of the) map(s). The signups will also go public on Tuesday. However, teams who have their own beta server to play on can already sign up here.

Monday Night Madness #7 – Cp_Bazillion

But first it’s time to try out and see the new map created by Arnold, the designer of the popular custom map cp_gullywash. His new map is a 5cp map called bazillion and features even more more mind-boggling originality with capture points. Be sure to check out some screenshots in his forum thread about the map.

The Seventh edition of the Monday Night Madness will be held next Monday, 6 December starting at 20:00 CET. Signups will open tomorrow on Sunday, 5 December at 17:00 CET. We will have several servers (provided by Multiplay) available to play on. Teams will be seeded into groups of 16 according to their skill. When signing up, you will be placed on the waiting list at first, and then seeded into the correct group. The finals of each bracket will be held at 22:15 CET. Be sure to check them out.

Sign up now!

For other map designers looking to get some playtesting and feedback, send a mail to [email protected] and with a little luck (and some mapping skills) you will motivate one of us enough to get a one-day cup hosted for you.

Community Call and the Recruitment section

In other news, some players from the community have recently started a nice petition to get our beloved game  played at the internationally prestigious Dreamhack LAN event. Rally your friends and clanmates and show what the TF2 community is made of. -Sign here-

The ETF2L recruitment section has been updated to work with divisional skill rating. Be sure to have a look and post your future 6v6 recruitment posts through the system. Topics in the old forum recruitment section can still be viewed and receive replies.

    As Ahhhhnold finished up cp_gullywash, he said to himself “I’ll be back”

    And so, a while later, he did.

    The end.

    Shouldn’t you provide us with a b7 download instead of a b5 download?
