    Ashkan fired us an email with some info on a couple of upcoming matches:
    </br>
    • We've got some exciting matches waiting for you! In the competitive community, there are only a handful of Grand Finals played each year, but this week, we happen to have three of them in two days! As you already know, we had UK and Germany duking it out in the ESL Country Championship Finals yesterday. Today, we have the ESL Finals between team SG-1 and team K1ck. We've got something for everyone though, as you can catch the CommFT European Highlander Finals today as well. Head over to VanillaTF2 for more info on that.
    • Maybe even more noteworthy, the first Free-2-Play Invitational Cup – challenging top teams from other shooters to battle it out in TF2 – will be played today. We've got competitive teams from Counter-Strike Source, Left 4 Dead 2, Brink and Call of Duty 4, all meeting on the battlefield of Team Fortress 2 to try their luck in an exciting clash. The winner of this cup will go on to play a show match at a later date against a Valve/All-Star team joined by TotalBiscuit himself. Make sure you don’t miss it, check out Cadred for more information.
    Since a couple of us at Valve will soon be playing the winners of the Free-2-Play Invitational Cup, we've also started ramping up the amount of time we spend thinking about ways to cheat win creatively. In completely unrelated news, if you see any TF2 updates in the future that have no changelist, don't worry, there's absolutely nothing going on.

    the grand finals with walker and totalbiscuit are at a later date, the finals just now still had to happen and just finished (determining the team to play the valve team)

    so the finals just now were delayed by about 30 minutes because of that update

    about the tournament?
    oh you know, just the comp communities of brink, cod4, l4d2 and css that only watch it to see their team
    or the f2p players that never heard of comp tf2 and are introduced to the scene
    or later the random people that watch every totalbiscuit video

    you know, sane new players instead of the jaded idiots like me that played tf2 for too long

    about the downtime?
    the players and their comp communities that watched the finals just now and did not get a good first impression from the 30 minute downtime due to a random minor update

    no it wasn't a huge deal, point is there was absolutely no need for valve to update during these matches they specifically posted on their blog too for a minor thing
