Hugs.tf will be returning to screens on the 21st/22nd April 2018.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0qc_mV2pnY

Hugs.tf is an annual charity live stream event by members of the European competitive Team Fortress 2 scene. Once again, we are raising money for the gamers charity, Special Effect - who bring inclusion back into the lives of people with disabilities by offering them customised methods of accessing technology.

Events this year include the fan favourite showmatches, alongside the return of the Joy of Painting creative section, and the biggest event in the competitive calendar - the World Championship of MGE X Chess. We’ll also be holding a range of talking events with our friends at Kritzkast, Essentials.tf, and the team behind Pirate Radio - all alongside our range of community figures.

This year we welcome roamer-extraordinaire Drackk, casting big-brain Nuze, and the master of hats Ceejaey to the sofa. They’ll be joining the usual crew at the home of hugs.tf from last year in West London. The full list of hugs.tf talent and crew can be found on our website.

Production is once again brought to you by Essentials.tf, with web work provided by Arrogant Pixel and BlackoutJon.

Donations will be opened one week before the event begins (14th April), and we’ll be announcing large events periodically until the event via our twitter page.

We hope to see you on our twitch channel over the weekend!

Is there any way to attend this in person or is it strictly a streaming thing? I feel like there was something like a meet-up last year, but I wasn’t paying enough attention.

Unfortunately the venue isn’t all that big. We actually had an issue with the amount of people there last year, so we’re cutting back this time around and only having the necessary staff and guests when needed.

Loads of stuff to update people with, so I'll try to be fairly concise.

Our donations went live yesterday at hugs.tf/donate and (with the help of everyone's charity-loving pal Geel) scrap.tf/hugs.

As an incentive to donate, we've worked with XB33, uberchain and Dark Litria to create a brand new medal for this year. Shoutout to Andy Thybo for the beautiful SFM work.
As with last year, the medal will go to everyone who donates a total of £10, either through item or cash donations (and makes sure they're logged in with their steam account).

We also have announced only moments ago our first showmatch, featuring Ascent NA vs Ascent EU taking place at 20:00 BST on Saturday 21st.
We've still got some more announcements to make in the coming days, so expect a couple more updates before we hit the big weekend.

Thanks to everybody who helped break last year's total as well as tuned in! As of writing this, the donation total sits at just over £19,000 raised for Special Effect. Donations close next week, April 29th, so there's still time to get it up to £20,000 by donating directly or using scrap.tf's item donations. That means you can also still get that sweet medal me, XB33, and DarkLitria helped design.

A big shoutout to the Hugs crew for allowing me to come back this year to help yell at people in their chat as well as do concept art. Big shoutout as well to the Hugs crew for taking time out of their schedule to volunteer and attend, staying up 24 hours to put on a show for the people, organizing everything and helping accommodate the online and offline volunteers as best as possible, and eating a whole log cake (happy birthday Permzilla) - all in the name of these kids and these people who no longer have to feel limited or confined, thanks to technology that accommodates for them and their wants & needs from Special Effect's efforts.

As a final update for Hugs.tf 2018:

We've uploaded most of the vods to this playlist. The last couple of vids will be up soon.

We're in the process of giving out the prizes from the raffle. You'll be contacted soon if you haven't been already!

And finally, I can announce that this year's final total was a fantastic £20,055.94, bringing our total raised so far to £42,000 for Special Effect!

I'm so, so thankful for everybody that donated, volunteered, hung out in chat, or otherwise contributed to this event. We wouldn't even try this nuts thing every year if we didn't genuinely love this community.

Thanks again, and see you next year.
