Never draw conclusions when you can yet draw blood. As the Invite season comes to a close, you may be taking a step back, scratching your head in disillusion as you add up all the numbers and proclaim the winners and losers. Yes, the season is ending, and with its final whimpering cry goes the last chance to see any high-tier 6v6 action. Doesn't it seem hard to believe? Where is that final LAN implicating grudge-match? Where is the fight for first? The team standings have gone down in the books without so much as a thrown match or a "You're not sorry." Instead, these last days linger, falling away listless and empty, as your malnourished hearts plead, "More. More. More."
More is what you need. More is what you crave. The very best TF2 teams, clashing in meaningful hard-fought, push-n-pull matches is what you deserve. So more of it is what you'll get.
TeamFortressTV, alongside sponsor ZOWIE, is proud to announce the first ever TFTV 8-team Invitational Tournament to take place this Sunday, December 8th at 12:00 PST / 3:00 PM EST. This will be a one day, double-elimination event with a best of three finals, wherein the upper-bracket winners determine the 1st and 3rd map. For your viewing pleasure, eight of North America's very best teams will clash heads on TragicServers for community dominance and your invaluable admiration with the added bonus of 6 ZOWIE FK mice for 1st place, and a consolation prize of 6 ZOWIE GT-F Rough mousepads for second. You are invited to join casters DJC and bLoodSire, alongside cameraman mthsad, as they try and wash that bad Season 15 taste from everyone's mouths.

Too good to be true? I know what you are thinking. "Will I need Pay-Per-View? Is there a fee? Do I need my mom's credit card?" No. You need only a mouse and your butt. Click http://www.twitch.tv/teamfortresstv with your mouse, and get ready to hold on to your butts.
(whatever, so you'll need hands too ...)
