So is this server just for the hardest of the hardcore? Can experienced, but not great players take part (like me)?

New players are always welcome, as are experienced-but-not-great players.

Historically, we've limited distribution of the password to folks who are intern or higher, as there'd been some issues in the past.

You'll want to pull down the maps from our map server , since we'll commonly play custom / non-stock maps.

If you have a microphone, I'd strongly encourage you to use it - communication is important for good teamwork.

Don't worry if you die a lot at first - I still have nights where the most help I am for my team is a combination bullet-sponge / distraction.

Spoiler:
Inbound comments that that's every night in 3...2...1...

Maybe it's time to change the password? That old riddle is going to be increasingly difficult for new players to figure out, since pretty much by definition, they weren't around for the original server.

I don't think there's a real problem with it at the moment. The riddle keeps the Google masses from figuring it out. If someone needs it, they can ask one of us in the steam group, or on the boards, and ultimately, we can just give it to them. We have enough admins hanging around to deal with trouble-makers if one slips by.

I have no issues with people giving out the PW in PMs so the riddle isn't necessary. For the summer tourney there's really no reason that captains can't give it out to everyone on their team. I would also suggest all captains PM me with their steam id and we can add them to the admin list.

I see you got my PM, then.

I thought we had some great games last night. Cashworks was just a slog on both sides...no one was able to finish the map. Stag, although far too long in practice, was at least pretty enjoyable for me; that was probably the most fun I've had on that map in a long time.

It was nice to see a couple of the new tourney folks hop on and get their feet wet, too. Admittedly a private server night is probably not the easiest time to jump on (you are guaranteed to get fragged more than usual), but they seemed to get a feel for the place.

Also, I would just like to point out that, as a sniper, I dominated ukick and then pissed on him, earning the achievement "Rode Hard, Put Away Wet". Couldn't have happened against a more fitting player.

And Tempest.......I forgot how good you are. You flipped around and made some headshots I didn't even think possible in no time at all. Wow.

Agreed - and remember that if the private is ever full, you can always check the [ ] Join Automatically box and get folks playing on the pub, as well.

It was very fun (for me, since Tempest was on my team) to hear him snap back into things so quickly, and start chuckling as he pulled off absurd headshots. Also fun to hear him making fun of all the "ridiculous" hats.

Ya that's what happens when all i'm trying to do is taunt kill you. Would have had you too if that damn soldier hadn't showed up and ruined my fun.

That was pretty fun. I went engie to help out Ruki and we managed to stop the next-to-last point.

My personal highlight was a couple maps before that on that one KOTH map. I sticky jumped over the point while blu was capping, dropped a bunch of stickies on top of them, and when I landed, got 5 or so kills at once. Saved the point, and reminded myself why I keep my sticky launcher over that silly shield.

In the future of TF2, there is only cp_stag

BTW I enjoy Ruki branding his teleporters with his avatar, if you take that tele you know it's quality.

I am glad we had a chance to play Stag. It is definitely one of my favorite custom maps. I enjoy the back and forth nature of it, and it is great for spies and demomen.

Hey, I don't care if it's because you had food poisoning, I'll take it.

Is the summer tourney going to be a yearly thing? [size=6](please say yes)[/size]

Arise from the dead private server thread! You have a new IP:8.6.74.206.

Wooo! Hopefully lag will be fixed? What was the change?

Server was moved to St. Louis, MO. (hopefully to a less crowded server)

I hear IP's are in short supply these days. That was nice of them to spare us one.

Hi, could I get an invite to the TF2 Steam group and access to the server? I recently got TF2 and I've been having a blast with it. I think I've gotten the hang of the fundamentals but playing on premium servers where people who buy in can buy five sentry turrets and do five times more damage than you is getting old.

Hannibal, post in the regular TF2 thread with your steam id.

http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/3...

Yes, I already did (... about 200 posts ago or something like that). Thanks though.

Hi! Is this the right place to ask for server access? I've seen the game night announcements and they look like fun, but I mostly lurk here and play on the l4d2 servers.

Thanks!

I don't appear to be in the group anymore. Could some lovely person send me an invite?

Out of interest, is it possible to generate unique passwords and then track who you give them to? That way if idiots show you, you can see who's responsible.

Best place to ask for the pw is the TF2 thread. 1dgaf I don't believe it is possible to generate multiple passwords.

Uhhh... It requires a password...

What is it? Oh and, is coffee grinder some forum rank or something? I only registered to try and join this server, since public ones suck.

Everything you ever needed to know about the community ---> User guide for GWJ

*edit* coffee grinder is entry level rank.

Yes. Otherwise, it wouldn't be private.

You can come and hang out with us on our public server. After you get to know the community and participate in the forums some, later on you can come join us on the private server.

This thread is our main one, it has IPs and steam group and such. Also, we only use the private server 2 nights a week. All other times we use our pub, but it's usually a majority of us on.
