    The Multiplay Insomnia Gaming Festival is one of the biggest annual gaming tournaments, not to mention one of the highest profile TF2 competitions in the world. This year boasts being the biggest one yet!

    Just when reddit started complaining like usual, the blog delivered. Also, 64 teams (am I reading that right?)! I haven't watched any previous events but that just sounds immense. Very excited to watch my first Insomnia.

    According to the List of Interstate Highways, there is no Interstate 58.

    Site says MAXIMUM of 64 teams are able to compete. There are actually only 16 teams competing. TF blog got it wrong.
