(PC) TF2 GWJ 2010 Summer Tournament (There can be... only one. )

Oh i'm all the way in!

I would prefer the World cup style tournament.

I'm voting for world cup style tourney as well.

How conspicuous of you, Pi. My vote's for single elimination. We have less than a dozen 2 man teams in the DoW2 League and it's hard enough getting time commitment from people.

I can tell you right now Team Ukick will not be playing on Trains.

I wholeheartedly agree. Trains are NOT good for tournament matches!
For that matter, they are NOT good for any normal match period!

I vote for double elimination. It'd suck to go through all the logistics just to lose and be done in one game. If that's what we need to do to actually finish the tournament though, it's better than no tournament.

Did anybody make an effort towards getting custom medals from Valve for the winners? Somebody mentioned it, but I didn't notice if it was going to be followed up. I think it's a great idea and has a pretty good chance of happening.

Let me say if it does happen, then I am all the way in.

Yes, if its all the way in, then it has definitely happened.

Emphasis. I'd hate to see this thing all drafted and setup and round robin matches played and then the middle of summer hits and the tournament falls apart into a 8vs8 or god forbid a 5vs5 crapfest of matches. Keep it focused within a month's time so we can get it done.

I've used this event(s) as my excuse to upgrade my Gaming Headset. My PC350's are being delivered tonight so I will (hopefully) log in to see if I still remember which button fires the gun-thingies. This game has guns, right?

Pro TF2 players don't use guns man

If valve wanted us to use guns, they wouldn't have given us a bat and boxing gloves.

Or a Bow and Arrow

Now I want an All-Melee Summer League.

All-Melee Taunt Fortress Summer League. Don't equip the Pickaxe, soldiers.

Are the teams completely random?

BrassMonkey and I are roommates and were thinking it might be fun to be on the same team.

It's supposed to be. There's probably going to be tweaking if some teams look really lopsided.

He probably will, but I will still give him money to shut the router off at a key time.

Ok, randomize away! We want team listings. Go Mex Go!

Well, team captains get to pick a sub-captain so...

Hi everyone,

Tonight is typically a private server night, but I'm anticipating a lot less regulars and a more relaxed atmosphere than usual due to Counter-Strike play-date. It'd be a good time for anyone who hasn't played in a year (or ever) to hop on and join us! Be sure to download the maps from Dimmer's FTP. The private IP is 8.2.0.69:27015. PM me or somebody else you already see playing if you need the password, or if you're a member of the steam group you can probably puzzle it out.

Hugs and kisses,
Minarchist

Ha, one of the teams was randomized like this:
MyBrainHz
Quintin_Stone
Tannhauser
NSMike
Queueball
Nuean
nihilo
Hobbes2099
deftly
TempestBlayze
EriktheRed

No way that's gonna happen... I bet the randomizer wanted ukick too, except he wasn't in the list.

Seems like every team should get at least 4 or 5 regulars, some very strong players, can't avoid having at least 2 veterans on every team.

but... but... I guarantee balancing out that team with my complete lack of skill or of a functioning mic.

Hey, take me off the list. I thought my little laptop could run this game fine, but the video card is garbage. Game keeps crashing, not reliable, too frustrating. Have fun, guys!
