had watched the comp 6s scene for a while, but played comp cod4 so only pubbed in tf2. 4 years ago this week, got asked by rapture/flood to play demo for his highlander team after I shafted him in a toyfort pub. for some reason it got casted by Kip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRsDDgxTjwg
5000 lobbies later i still wear the same pink hats and overextend like a twat.

feforI discovered it on 2010 by watching the meatshot movies and some tlr videos, then I started watching moments of glory and extv top10s, on 2011 I was already watching a bit of esea invite matches and then by late 2011 I played my first mix as a medic, it went well but my pc was so shit that I decided I should try comp again when I get a new one, then on january 2012 I got a new pc and started playing mixes/pugs as scout and soldier

almost what happened with me to the letter except I started earlier

I started playing pubs in march or april of 2009. In 2010, I made a team with some friends to play the Highlander Community Challenge and get those shiny medals. Then, in 2011, I finally wanted to try some 6v6 because pubs were too easy. I tried to play some br pugs, but it is kinda hard to play it if you don't know anybody, so I went to play some 150ms lobbies. Later in the year I was invited to play a Pubbers vs. Pros and did well as soldier, so I finally joined the competitive scene.

I kinda always knew TF2 would have a competitive scene and I knew it was 6v6 but I was scared to try because I was 13-14 at the time and I thought I would be ridiculed for my high pitch. But in late 2009 I decided to make a team with irl friends and some good pubbers I knew.

7 years later still playing,

My local community have a 4v4 tournament, decided to create a team and join. Tournament died after, but I got picked up by another 4v4 team as medic and decided to join 6v6. I only played one match at the time due to me taking a break from gaming because my last exam on junior high. Fast forward some months or so I tried to create teams but folded shortly afterwards so I was teamless for some time. My first major game was at the AF MC7 week 1 vs. what would be the winner of the tournament, Club Penguin Crusaders. It did not went well and we folded shortly after our match. Now I am participating in UGC 4v4 lol, and going to play for the next major AF 6v6 cup.

I heard about the ETF2L highlander challenge through my pub community, so I decided to try to organise a team as I was a disgusting spy main. Realise not long afterwards that it was a european thing so decided we probably shouldn't do that. Started up some friendly highlander games with a couple of other pub communities, then my friend said he was starting a 6v6 team so I decided to join it. Somewhere in there I also watched fanom s6 highlights and riverdude'd and said to myself "I want to be able to do that someday"

i went 3 years ago to a computer coding class in NY and during some free time they held a tf2 lan, and whoever had the most points at the end of a dustbowl game won a prize. Pretty cool way into getting tf2 first, then from there I just played pubs untill I decided to make my own team in ugc iron 6s.

my first competitive game was on a mainline cup

I had played with some of these guys on an arena server, I only played because they didn't have anyone else and one of the team members shouted at me

I had no idea what I was doing so I asked them what I was supposed to do as a scout, I was told watch the combos flank, so my response to that was to just stand with the medic and look backwards, I'm an idiot

I saw a Jerma video that basically said the best way to get better at scout was to mge, so that is what I did. Every now and then in mge servers people would type, "do you play comp?" Eventually, out of curiosity I asked, "what is comp?" and then some guys answered my question and introduced me to tf2center.

I heard about TF2lobby and got excited so played a game on cp_fastlane as a medic back in spring 2010. It was a shit experience but it took me a few more games to find and make some friends to play with.

A few members of my clan formed an HL team in early 2012. I watched them a couple of times.

Another person from this clan (may have been on the team, I can't remember) said I should watch the ESEA S10 LAN. I liked what I saw, went to Newbie Mixes, played in Steel for a season and finally made it to Open years later.

How I joined UGC...

Was playing some MGE with friends, then some kid from Europe asked us if we wanted to tryout for a EU HL team in UGC Iron. We ended up joining that team only because he lied to us. He told us he was a Platinum Spy main trying to start an Iron team. That team had 4 NA players and we only won 1 map due to forfeit.

I started playing comp a little bit after I had just started.

I was interested in the game and was looking at youtube videos of it and found extv and started delving deeper and joined an iron hl team and played spy for way longer than I should have. Got into 6s after I stopped playing on a $200 laptop.

Some random dude on my friendlist asked if I wanted to play in his HL open team when I only had 1-2 months of experience in tf2. I didn't know what I was doing but nonetheless I was having a blast. Our team placed 2nd in div 6. Before the next season our team leader cut and replaced everyone on the team without telling us. His team placed last in div 5.

Also, he apparently died in a car crash 5 months later.
