TFTV i49 Fundraiser Showmatches
mana
in › News › May 10, 2013

Hello, folks! We have some exciting matches scheduled for pushing the last ~$3k of the official i49 fundraiser. To refresh, TeamFortress.TV is sending one North American team to i49 in England (now decided to be High Rollers Gaming TF2, the winners of the ESEA Season 13 LAN).

To help push some hype and raise money, we’re holding not just one, but TWO incredibly exciting showmatches:

HRG vs. Epsilon

HRG vs. Broder

  • Sunday, May 19 at 21 CET
  • Salamancer and Admirable casting, with huhy on camera


Servers are graciously provided by Tragic of tragicservers.com and Arie of VanillaTF2.org.

Each showmatch will consist of three maps. After each map, there will be a server switch as to make sure every team has a fair shot. On the third map, a coin flip will determine who will get to choose either the server or the map.

HRG play well on NA server: "Epsilon are playing badly"
Epsilon play well on EU server: "HRG have terrible pings"
Seems fair.

not defending the casters -- but i wonder what the difference in ping was from server to server (for both teams)

only think i remember is someone saying b4nny had a 200 ping and i seem to remember someone saying Mike had a 150ish ping? on the first map?

This time around all the pings are very good, so I'm incredibly confident that the matches this time around are going to be much more determined by skill and less ping differences.

That's interesting. I assumed with the location of the broder players that any US server would be terrible for them. Did you find a better EU server for HRG?

broder players are pinging ~100 to the NY server that will be used

Eh, it's more like 120ish, which is just about on the verge of playing without many ping problems. Full server details will be out soon, still finalizing a couple things.

I'd imagine the swedish players of Broder get no more than 110 ping, that's the highest I get to NY anyway. Cookye and Mirelin might be 10 or 20 above that, but considering HRG have a few West Coast players the pings should be very fair.

Everyone on broder withing 100-130 ms probably. HRG probably 90+ on b4nny and lansky and 50ish on the other if I'm not completely confused as to where they live
