    I'm a member of the Hampshire Heavies, a European TF2 clan. You might remember that we held some weekly playtests for TF2maps around winter last year (New Map Night).

    This summer we're thinking about holding a few friendly highlander matches with other TF2 communities. The teams are a mix of players who've played in competitive leagues, and those who have barely played an organized game before, and we allow any player in our community to signup to our team. I was wondering if you guys would want to signup for a TF2maps.net team to play against us on a Saturday evening? We can play two WIP maps of your community's choosing and provide feedback to their creators.

    If there is interest I can post more specific details about the potential date/time, server - and, yes, hat-prizes :p.

    edit: This will be an EU event

    I'd play. I'm sure people have maps they'd like to test.

    I'd do this so long as I could make the times. I end up working something like 50 hours a week and that's excluding the 2 hours of travel I do each day. But if the times work out I'd definitely do this.

    I ought to mention that our server is in the UK, so US or Australian players would be too laggy to be competitive.

    As for times, we were thinking of 7pm GMT+1 (British Summer Time) on a Saturday evening. That's 8pm GMT+2 (Central European Summer Time).

    Couple of other things: each team would have a team leader whose job it is to herd people onto the server and set out a basic strategy. Microphones are recommended. The match would be broadcast live on SourceTV and justin.tv with commentary. Players of any skill level would be encouraged to signup. It is possible for players to gamble items - if you win, you get your item back as well as an opponents item.

    I'm up for this, is it Highlander or standard 6v6?

    Highlander is a lot more interesting, and I have experience playing as a Soldier in a Highlander environment.

    Yeah, it's highlander. We'd need 9 of you guys to signup for this to go ahead.

    By the way, this isn't the 'proper' signup thread yet - still got to confirm that there's real interest and that this is going ahead, and the date, and then I'll make a post with full info.

    Doesn't look like there's much interest so this might not go ahead after all :(

    Too many pointless contests which people get hooked to.

    I have no mic, no skill, no hand-eye coordination and there is a good chance that I wont have the time either.

    LETS DO THIS

    You can still play even if you don't have a mic, because you'll be able to hear the commands of other players.
