    I realize that this site doesn't seem to like comp players much. HOWEVER this is something even the people on the steam forums enjoyed. It's a game between some good competitive players (team of 6, using standard 6v6 rules), against a team of pubstars (team of 9, using highlander rules). I watched the last one and it was pretty cool, pubstars won on the payload map, comp. players work on the cp maps.

    Figured some of you guys may be interested in it.

    Oh, I wouldn't say that, even though personally some elitists really make me sick. I think we're all generally open to all kinds of players.

    Anyway, I found this really interesting, but it started at 2 am for me. Good thing it was recorded, though, I'll probably have a look at it. :)

    A member of this website organised it! :D

    Well, he's part of it. Cerious, the engineer in the highlander team, planned the event iirc.

    Trying to convince him to make one for Mappers vs Pros XD

    if we could make the level, it would be easy. Indestructible sentries EVERYWHERE.

    hehe my plan for the maps this time is this:

    cp_well - cp_pro_dustbowl - cp_yukon_rc4 as tiebreaker.

    If you guys want I can make a mappers vs. pros, I'll just ask a few people that I know.

    p.s. I have a very special 6v9 thing planned for early august. :O

    Yea, there's no real hate towards competitive players. It's only when the subject of competitive play is used to try and justify a point, that people tend to get a little heated, as this is where the contraversy lies.

    Someone could have clipped the demo's? They're 510000 frames long and nothing happens for the first 400000..

    Lol :/

    tv_autorecord starts recording from map start to map switch. Besides, it wasn't my server, so you'd have to talk to Blackbanjo about that.

    I specced this match the other day, it was super entertaining

    Cerious does engies everywhere proud. Some good shotty/pistol work, and an EPIC gpit cap

    The heavy KGB cap was pretty cool too

    Not surprisingly, pubbers held out on the ledge above Badwater cap 2 for the win on that map, but overall it was pretty close and great fun to watch

    I'd imagine pubbers winning on playload maps seeing that spaming the cart or from the cart is a central part of pl.

    Blasphemy, masterfully picking off players as Spy and Sniper with style and grace is the central part of EVERY Pl map in existence :p

    The pub spy and sniper were both pretty good, imo

    Hell, I bet everyone on both teams would have smoked me

    Poor, poor pubstars.

    Buick is a dashing rogue -- with 800 hours as medic.

    i dunno much about NA TF2 pro scene, but i know quite well EU scene

    and pubstars are gonna be raped very hard (it might not even gonna be funny, for both teams)


    cerious, i guess you can't make the EU weekly spuf to be scheduled one hour later? (next week i mean, i'd like to show my skill and fight some progamers)

    for those who don't know:

    EU side is actually pretty lighthearted about the whole thing - they've all been poking fun of the people on the rosters and saying they're on the wrong side, and they're doing 3 maps even if the comp. players win the first two maps.

    Also, relays have changed for the EU side.

    relay.toaster.fi:27021 (EU, thanks to ReVe)
    relay.toaster.fi:27023 (EU, thanks to ReVe)
    relay.toaster.fi:27025 (EU, thanks to ReVe)
    relay.toaster.fi:27027 (EU, thanks to ReVe)

    Looking at the competitive roster it looks like it's going to be a painful game. Good luck to the pubbers at any rate.
