    REBIRTH! SIGNUPS OPEN!

    I got all stuck with school and all that jazz for a while - blame life, not me - but after supertoaster's constant reminders about it (big thanks to him), I've decided to try and get this whole thing over with by 8/10/09. Wish me luck!

    RULES:
    • 6 Competitive Players vs. 9 TF2maps.net mappers (at least 1 map released in alpha form)
    • Competitive players will be playing with class limits of: 1 demo, 1 medic, 2 of everything else
    • TF2maps.net regulars will be playing in the Highlander format - one of each class
    • No crits, no damage spread, mp_tournament 1, no Sandman, no unfair exploits of map design.
    • Automatic Source TV demo recording.
    • Priority order of signups:
      1. People who have made the maps being played
      2. People who have created community maps
      3. TF2maps.net Contest Winners
      4. People who have made finalized maps (like cp_waste_final, preferably of similar quality)
      5. Average Joe Mapmakers who are administrators/moderators on the site.
      6. Average Joe Mapmakers with mics.
      7. Average Joe Mapmakers without mics.
      8. Supertoaster lolololol
    • 1 substitute per class, please do not sign up as a certain class if you're only signing up just to play - sign up as a particular class if you're good at it.
    • Custom maps only


    SIGNUP REQUIRMENTS:
    • Need Ventrilo 3.0 (ventrilo.com) and a microphone is preferred for communication.
    • Need to be U.S. to participate (sorry Europeans! I don't have a server over there and I don't know the competitive players there except for Shintaz).
    • Post an application in the following format:
      -Microphone: <yes or no>
      -Steam Community Page: <needs to work like mine>
      -Class: <what class you want to play>
    • Friend me ASAP so I can contact you easily, and invite you to the group where I put the announcements and server info in.


    MY TODO LIST:
    1. Decide a server location - Dallas or Seattle? I have 2 servers that I can choose from so that isn't an issue.
    2. Get some competitive players. Possibly from Gotfrag although there are people there that don't particularly like me (like Methuselah or Beef).
    3. See if anybody decent would like to shoutcast. Maybe not, if people don't want a shoutcaster at all.
    4. Choose maps. I've got a rough list in mind - cp_waste_final, ctf_something_cool, cp_furnace_b4
    5. Source TV relay. I'll talk to Litany about this one so it won't be too hard for me to get this done.
    6. Download Redirect. My friend has one so it's all cool but I still need to upload the maps.
    7. Set up the server. I'm good at this so it should take me an hour or so.

    Thanks to Supertoaster and anyone else who signs up/shows interest/likes this event.

    I almost didn't approve this because you used comic sans.

    I'm playing Medic. My steam page is in the top right of this post.

    Would love to see Furnace get played.

    im tempted to sign up...
    though I have some questions first,

    1) When is this event intended to start?
    2) Why is sandman still banned after the significant changes, just curious
    3) What exactly is it about your steam page that could be considered...something most people don't already have?
    4) I don't want to friend you! :p

    Other then that...ill tentatively sign up as engineer, my schedule tends to screw over any and all plans I make.

    I'd love to Pyro, Medic, or Soldier, but there's a lot of other people who probably deserve the slot more then I do and I'll willingly let them take the spot. (if not though sign me up!) Steam page in the upper left hand corner. Yes to mic and Vent. (Also has had pervious comp experience as medic.)

    Also, make very very sure there is a Source TV. Regardless if I can play or not I want to get a demo file for recording purposes. I'd love to make a "Highlights of the TF2M69!" film, preferably with a good voice over.

    EDIT: Ah, I see two have already been taken by more prominent members. Pyro it is then.

    This time I can play, but... looks like Sausage already took the soldier spot, so I'll play my other good class: scout.

    I'm good either as soldier or scout, so sign me up for scout.
