Valve may be on holiday, But that doesn’t stop us. It sure as hell doesn’t stop the community. So instead of talking about all the updates that happened this week, We’ve brought Comedian from Vanilatf2 along for the ride. Our first stop was talking about how Guild Wars 2 has taken a leaf out of TF2′s book while creating it new classes. Besides crediting Arena-net for this choice, It also [...]
Go on, Show us your Strange Parts. By that I of course mean the strange parts that you can now add onto your Strange weapons. Such Strange weapons as the Sapper and Construction PDA. Yep, they both have strange version now available in creates. But to implement it, Valve added a Sapper and PDA slot to the Spy and Engie. Could this be the start of new types of weapons? [...]
Well this was a week. We thought we’d seen it all, but we are always surprised by some of the things that manage to find their way onto the show. This week the big thing is simply a rumor. We could be talking about something that will never happen. But when that this is a steam console, its worth talking about. Plus with Valves track record, it would not be [...]
The KritzKast Lo-Fi Offclass Cup has evolved from it’s simple beginings. In sheer defiance of the usual 6v6 rules we wanted to bring an occam’s razor solution to the off-classes never getting a look-in on the vibrant competative scene. Said as much in drunken jest as anything, the idea of banning the Solider, Scout and Demoman could have amounted to nothing had it not been for a listener, Trent deciding [...]
Having had my very soul punched and kicked into the ground for days, I was very pleased when the Lo-Fi Offclass Cup came to a dramatic conclusion on Saturday evening and I could sit back with a drink. I commentated on the finals live on VanillaTV alongside Comedian and later Agro, a fitting end to the veritable trial-by-fire that this event has been for me as an organiser and as [...]
With the first night as chaotic as expected but highly successful nonetheless, the final rounds of PubComp and KritzKast‘s inaugural cup have been moved forward to tomorrow evening, Saturday the 24th. Tune in to VanillaTV from 1930 CEST tomorrow with Comedian and Trent for all the action from the most ridiculously pointless form of competitive TF2 you may have ever seen! Huge thanks are in order to both EoReality, whose servers have been [...]
With over 200 teams signed up to the Lo-Fi Offclass cup Trent has his work cut out keeping everyone in order. He’s laid out some ground rules for teams to follow. If you signed up a team to this event, read this post or risk getting disqualified.
We should get drunk and ramble into mics more often. It appears that we when we do we come up with inspirational ideas. Either that or our listeners are already one bonk bat short of a trebble jump and they don’t need much encouragement. Case in point, Trent from PubComp has decided to make real our suggestion of a TF2 Cup where Soldiers, Demomen and Scouts are barred. Give the [...]
