    **TAKING SUGGESTIONS FOR MAPS TO TEST**
    I can also bump the time back 1 hour (7pm EST). But I can only host 2 rounds



    Where? our server (routed through TF2lobby.com)
    When? About 6PM EST (Click for other timezones)
    Who? Anyone who has decent internet ping to NYC, TF2 and hats.


    What is this?
    Highlander is a competitive TF2 Gamemode where teams are restricted to 9 players, and only 1 of each class.

    Do I need competitive experience?
    No, of course not! These events will be open to all. The only experience needed is a basic understanding of how to play Team Fortress 2.

    Are we going to use this to test custom maps?
    Yes! If you have a comp map you'd like to have tested, post its Download and thread here. I will put all the maps up for a vote, assuming that they are good gamemodes for highlander (aka, all the game-modes) and that they aren't too ridiculous. I will also though, not take early alpha maps. Late alpha and beta maps please.

    Can I reserve a class?
    No, but you can request that people don't select a certain class so you can play it. The best thing to do is just get there early.

    Should I have a mic?
    Whilst it is preferred, you do not need one. Having binds though for commands such as "SPY!" or "Move in!" is useful. Medics are highly suggested to have mics as to help coordinate their team.

    How can I join?
    I'll be using Tf2Lobby.com to create a lobby on OUR server. I will then make an event annoucement about the test, with a link to the lobby. Simply click the link, join the lobby, choose a team and class and click "ready".

    You can use this thread to discuss anything about the event, ask for class/team requests, or suggest a map to test for next weeks event.

    Also, I'm looking for what map you guys want to play this week. Vote in the poll, and make a post about what map per the gamemode you posted you'd like to play

    I was thinking that doing a stock, then a custom map. But if I can get a second (late alpha/beta map... not promicott... YET) custom we'd be good.

    So vote, Stoney Ridge, Escarpment or Volcanic?

    Thread links to the different options, I picked StoneyRidge but I have no idea what it even looks like.

    Oh, those maps are all good. The first two look good enough that one could mistake the map for a finished map.

    Escarpment, Volcanic. Highlander. Tonight. Same rules as last time (There will be the whitelist).


    I'm starting the match as a private one. Password will be in the announcement I make at the start of the event.


    I can only do 2 rounds, I have much homework to do.
