    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    I'm very much interested, but I don't think my tf2 skills are up to snuff these days. In 6v6, I'd only feel remotely comfortable playing Scout, but even then I feel like I'm distinctly below average in terms of comp skill level. In HL I'm more comfortable playing Sniper or perhaps Pyro. Basically just saying I'm interested, I'm reinstalling Mumble and configuring IRC atm, and I'll join the Steam group for now if you'll have me, although my comp experience is almost nothing, but I enjoy playing as part of a team.

    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    Is this new group for only 6s, or HL too?

    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    #tf.wars is for searching 6v6.

    Mixes are there for practise, so it isn't very bad if someone hasn't played comp 6v6 yet.
    I played last season main medic, so if anyone has a qestion just ask, i think I know some stuff =P (as well as Spudd and Krazko i guess)

    Highlander would be interesting as well as long as there will be enough people interested in playing^^
    Maybe there will be enough people for double mixes in the group. Would be awesome
    And I think making an announcement would be the best, e.g. "6v6 Mix. join Mumble" or something. and the first 6 who will be there can play then.

    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    skillevel won't really matter in the mixes, we can always mix and match with classes to get a more even team and if me, spudd, calump go mainclass it won't matter to much if you're not up to par with their players, as we'll help you along the way.
    I'm hoping we can start setting up some mixes in the near future.

    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    I deliberatly didn't put 6v6 in the group name, in case people want to use it for HL (don't see why not).

    But I would guess it'll mostly be used for 6v6.

    Yes please Could be a good warm-up for later, for those involved in the HL match later, too. Wonder if we'd have enough for 6v6 within PS. That'd be awesome. I'm down for demo or solly (pocket or roaming).

    I have a mumble channel we could use, so it's not really an issue
    QFT.
    I tend to take a more community focussed approach when considering things like voice server usage for community activities. My concern would be that using two different voice servers does nothing to add community cohesion and fostering an inclusive environment. I've put it to a vote. I can't stop you organising games and turning to mumble for voice comms - but I can appeal to your sense of community and if necessary divert community resources to the most desirable platform for all.

    We took some of the lads for a spin today on a slightly dysfunctional 6v6! Good game tho, drew against a Div6 team with Season experience.

    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    I'm up for a game later for sure, we're in between seasons in the U.S. at the moment...be nice to find out what skill I'm at

    My plan for the steam group is once I revert it back to Invite only, I'll make it so that all members can make an event (in order to get 6 peeps together).

    Definitely a golden cap
    Great pick-ups with you guys earlier Got exams to revise for 'n' all that kinda shit up until the 15th (when Diablo comes out ), but I can always make time for TF2.

    Re: TF2 Pickups/mixes

    Okay guys: I'm gonna start kicking this off a little myself (hopefully when I'm not revising/doing exams/playing Diablo 3/afk and whatnot) soonish, so it'd be good to just have a rough idea of what I'm doing when it comes to #tf.wars.

    My understanding so far is that you'll just say something like "6v6 || server on/off || when || div", and you can just PM people with similar posts/get PM'd and then organise server details/map choice from there? Also, I've seen people go out of their way to say "teams", too; do you have to make that clear? If that's all there is to it then we're grand and I'll make sure to root around in the mixes group for people to make up a 6s team from time to time. Make sure we start off low-. 8D Are non-admins able to make events at the moment? That'd be handy.

    d6 on
    d6 off

    all you need really, people won't really expect it to be HL unless you specify, and now is understood unless you state otherwise and team, no you don't need to, its just if some teams want to practise and want a real team to play on rather than a mix, due to the improved comms, knowledge of playstyle etc...

    Awesome. Cheers.
    I might grab some interested people tomorrow after my exam (clinical/phenomenological psychology, wish me luck 8D).
    At least on a map I know the rollout for.

    I'd love to give my two cents and help people who'd want to get into comp
    I'd like to give it a try! I suspect that my illusions of being any good would quickly be dispelled, though
