For the past eight years, teamfortress.tv has been the self-proclaimed home of competitive TF2, providing news, coverage, and enigma's rent payment. As our writers continue to disappear under suspicious circumstances, we're looking to expand our news coverage with some new faces!
Writers will cover important events in the competitive TF2 scene, including roster changes, league announcements, and LAN events. This typically involves research, contacting relevant individuals for a quote, and compiling all the information together in a concise and entertaining fashion.
Beyond that, we are also looking for some innovative ideas to spice up our news coverage. If anyone has an interesting topic or even an op-ed they are interested in writing about, feel free to reach out!
While we will not be able to compensate you monetarily, teamfortress.tv can provide excellent exposure™, the ability to brag about having top players on your friend's list, and the elusive fifth nerdstar. Long-time staff members may also be invited to the TFTV Illuminati, which ensures the scene is stagnant and Valve doesn't give us Majors.
