#24 TFCL Weekend Cups in TF2 General Discussion
Console-snip

1. We've made it very clear that this tournament was primarily intended for North American players. As mentioned higher up in this thread itself, we specifically brought up the ping issues, and said how V!s may be at a disadvantage if they were to participate. They joined despite this.

2. The Grand Finals were always scheduled to take place at 8:00 PM Eastern. The schedule was made available the day the cup was announced. We expect for any and all teams, no matter their region, to be available at the scheduled times.

3. To forfeit a grand final match because the team you're facing is known to win, is not a valid reason to forfeit a match. By doing so, you're disrespecting your opponent, the league that's supposed to provide casting, and in general, just wasting everybody's time. Now, if the match was heavily delayed, and the players were unable to play the match due to this delay, then a forfeit or even a reschedule attempt will be justified. However, this is not what happened.

4. In regards to casting. We were live when V!s decided to forfeit the grand finals. He provided zero communication with any of our league administrators. The only reason we knew that he had forfeited his match, was because one of our casters noticed him say so via in-game chat. When we tried to reach out to him, both V!s and Syncing were offline, and unreachable.

5. It is not very sporting to refuse to play a grand final match simply because you're afraid of your opponent. Even more so when you don't even notify the relevant parties, and just leave them hanging with zero communication. What V!s demonstrated tonight was very unsportsmanlike behavior, and cannot be justified in any way, shape, or form, as proper competitive sportsmanship. It's in very poor taste to not show up for a scheduled event, and blame it on "them being better".

It's better to play and lose, than to not play at all.

I'm going to write up an official statement later, and also mention our stance as a league, and why we ruled in the way that we did. I'm also going to modify our rules to make them more clearcut and concise in regards to forfeiting a grand final match. The updated ruleset will be used and enforced for all future cups, tournaments, seasons, and league events.

The final ranking for the ultiduo cup is as follows.

1st. Primary (daffodil, delpo)
2nd. End Game (b4nny, nursey)
3rd. Memes For The Win (v!s, syncing)

#14 TFCL Weekend Cups in TF2 General Discussion

The Ultiduo Cup has been updated.
https://tfcleague.com/bracket/ultiduo-weekend-cup-1-updated

Registration is now closed. Format has been changed from swiss to double elimination. The entire cup will be played today, with nothing set for tomorrow, effectively turning it into a one day cup. Grand finals will be best of three maps.

#13 TFCL Weekend Cups in TF2 General Discussion

We only have 8 teams for the Ultiduo cup right now, and need to get at least 8 more for the bracket tomorrow. If you haven't signed up yet, please do so as soon as you can. The bracket has a max of 32 teams, but we definitely need at least 16 for this thing to go smoothly.

https://tfcleague.com/bracket/ultiduo-weekend-cup-1/

Also to clarify some information.
Each match will have a winlimit of 2, instead of the usual 3 that was used in the main season. Also, Saturday is a Swiss format, so everybody should be able to play at least four games on Saturday. Sunday will be double elimination playoffs between the top 8 or 16 teams, depending on how many teams the cup gets.

Servers will be provided, and are mostly located in Chicago. We may have a few out in LA as well, but that depends on how many west coast teams sign up.

Thanks, and good luck to everyone competing!

#10 TFCL Weekend Cups in TF2 General Discussion
VisGiven that those are weekend cups, shall we consider them being revolved around NA solely?

They're primarily NA, yes. However, if you wish to join from EU or another region, you'll be able to. Just take note that the servers are in Chicago, so you'll be at a ping disadvantage. That could be especially troublesome for something like dodgeball.

#6 New Steam Chat / Friends List Problems in Q/A Help

I have an issue with timestamps. I want it to work in a 12 hour format, but it's stuck on the 24 hour format, even though in settings it's set to 12 hour.

Another thing, is I don't always appear invisible. Like, I'll set it as Invisible, and my status shows as invisible, but sometimes seemingly at random the little chat window will turn blue, indicating that I'm online, even though I am still listed as invisible. Friends see me as online, and the website profile shows me as online. This is the most annoying bug by far imo.

Group chat rooms are basically broken if you have more than 100 members in it. It lags your steam client super hard.

All in all, I really freaking hate this update. It doesn't feel like a full release, but rather a very early beta. My biggest gripe is with the new chat UI. Like, what the hell? I don't care what my 380 friends are playing at every given time, especially when they're games I don't even own. I wish I could disable that, or at least put the active game list thing at the very bottom of the friend list so I can avoid looking at it. Hell, I'd even go so far as to say I love my cat more than I love this new interface, and that's saying something...

Moist_masterdo we get a badge?

Yup. Not sure exactly when the medal is going to be made available, but we're basically designing a new one just for the cups.

#1 TFCL Weekend Cups in TF2 General Discussion

I'm hosting 5 weekend cups from now until October 15th, starting with an Ultiduo cup this weekend. Each one will have a 50 key prize pool, provided by STN Trading. I'm also going to be casting it over on the TFCL Twitch channel, and will have several special guests on the stream to basically talk about their involvement in the TF2 community, and why they love this game, and its community. The most notable guest IMO is a developer from the TF2 demake, Gang Garrison 2. They're about to celebrate their ten year anniversary.

The goal with these cups is to basically get some activity going while TFCL is being recreated. It's also a bit of a celebration of TF2 itself, sort of like the decade.tf project. I took over that project last year, but never got around to hosting the event. Hopefully these cups are able to capture the spirit of decade.tf, and the spirit of the game we all love. Now more than ever, considering recent events...

Signups for Ultiduo are open now. I'll update this thread once the other schedules have been released.

Ultiduo - August 11th & 12th
https://tfcleague.com/bracket/ultiduo-weekend-cup-1-updated

Bball - August 25th & 26th

Dodgeball -September 8th & 9th

New Map Cup - September 22nd & 23rd

Whitelist Cup - October 6th & 7th

#15 Looking for advise: single player games in Other Games

Planet Coaster - it's similar to Rollercoaster Tycoon, and basically the most modern theme park tycoon you can get right now.

Cities: Skylines - instead of a theme park, it's a city. Like SimCity, but better.

Brutal Legend - it's a "metal" game starring Jack Black. It's just fun to play.

Borderlands - this is basically one of my all-time favs, though if you're going to get into the game for the first time, Borderlands 2 is a solid starting point. The base game is great, but it's definitely better with the DLC.

Stardew Valley - this isn't for everyone, admittedly. It's relaxing, slow, and full of RPG goodness.

Just Cause 3 - someone else on here already recommended Just Cause 2, which is still a great game. However, JC3 is simply bigger. It's a direct upgrade to JC2 in almost every single way. Think of it as GTA, but where your primary objective isn't robbing banks, it's blowing shit up.

Saints Row 2 - this is by far the most comparable game to classic GTA, and the best in the Saints Row series. Controls are dated, and driving mechanics aren't super fluid, but it's still an all around great game.

Saints Row 3 or 4 - unlike the first two games, Saints 3 and 4 take a far more silly approach, and just focuses on mindless fun. It's very silly, stupid, mindless, and absurd, but it's also a fun game, and one that I really enjoy.

LA Noire - if you're looking for a pure story game with you being a detective in 1940's LA, then LA Noire is really the best thing you can get. I own multiple copies of this (alongside other Rockstar games) and really can't recommend it enough. However, it's not for everyone. You're a detective, and sometimes being a detective is slow.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - this is a fantastic story driven game, and a pretty iconic one at that.

Doom - it's just mindless shooting. Super fun.

Mirror's Edge - a modern classic as far as I'm concerned. It's mostly based on movement, and going through levels as fast as you can. Highly stylized, with combat being entirely optional.

#4 Discord overlay? in Q/A Help

Discord has never really been consistent when it comes to its overlay. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes it tries kills your cat for no reason.

Try changing your in-game resolution a few times with discord running. Doing that sometimes fixes the problem for me, but not always. Another thing you could try is to just relaunch the game until it works. This could take a while, but it should work eventually.

There aren't really any sure-fire ways to fix this problem. If it persists, and if you can't fix it for whatever odd reason, just use mumble. It's less resource intensive, is open source, has better sound quality, and it even has a working overlay. It also hasn't tried to kill my cat...yet.

#3 any trusted sites like g2a? in Off Topic

Apparently Kinguin.

If you want an actual game store that pays the developers, https://www.gog.com/ is my go-to.

#19 why did most of tf2's secondary leagues die in TF2 General Discussion
NurseyWhy do people not want to play HL & free 6v6 in TFCL? You still get medals and a free prizepot. It seems very confusing that people never want to make the switch.

TFCL is smaller, and not super welcoming to new players and teams. Smaller size means no divisions, as there aren't enough teams to fill them up. This in turn creates an experience where you'll either roll, or get rolled. I've had people yell at me (like, actually yell, with their voice) because their team got rolled. I've received threats of having their team leave TFCL if we don't introduce a lower division. It's kinda a rock and hard place situation.

Then there's also the clear lack of advertising. Aside from a few mentions here and there on tftv, and a sidebar link to both the league and lan on r/tf2, TFCL isn't really mentioned elsewhere in the community. It's just kinda "that one ultiduo league" at this point, which is fine. But that won't ultimately make existing UGC teams join TFCL HL or 6v6.

#7 Farscape in Music, Movies, TV

Farscape isn't available to stream anywhere legally. You'll either need to buy the series, or find a way to stream or download it through other means. Primewire is what I used to use for things I couldn't otherwise buy or watch legally, so perhaps check that out? Otherwise, torrent it.

edit: apparently primewire was hijacked recently, so perhaps avoid using that site for now. Not sure of any alternatives. I rarely watch TV nowadays.

#154 ESEA Season 28 Open Happenings/Discussion in TF2 General Discussion

Welp, tonight was fun. Ended up playing a 5v6 due to some ESEA issues and one of our starters having a major last minute life thing get in the way. So we ended up just having fun. Did a 1v1 medic battle at mid, only for that battle to end the instant our sniper shot at someone, causing war to break out, and the truce to end.

Tried it again the next round. Our medic won. Then war broke out again, and we all couldn't stop laughing at the stupidity of it. gg
