Medics get speed when beaming scouts, and shotgun pocket is rare since you can just tank scouts.

Dashner revealed to be a shitty person to few's surprise

we got NA iseries-esque events (intercontinental) that died due to failed 2019 event followed by cancelled 2020 event due to said dashner (along with tsc/samiface)

iSeries was taken over by EssentialsTF, i61/63 were aight, i65 slammed

froyo still undefeated after i58 internationally, was a point where they had a multi-season no map drop streak; they now refuse to do LANs outside of b4nny's backyard or invite LAN so unlikely we'll ever see them contest an international title again if the US doesn't see another big boy event

Invite LAN is back sorta but also pandemic so sorta not

How often do people scrim?
How can I start from the absolute bottom?
Is UGC still the goto for HL?
Is scrimming still 9-11 estish?

I know you can move like scouts as a medic, but how did that change the meta?

Normal scrim days are Sunday to Thursday 9:30 EST until midnight EST. This is the schedule for most "serious" teams.

Just go lft and post in either the lft section of tftv or the rgl forums for lower levels team. And I do mean lower level, like main or below. Side note: RGL divs are invite, adv (now div 1 and div 2), main, IM, amateur, and newcomer. Invite, adv, and main line up p easily with esea invite, IM, and open.

RGL has an HL league and a 6s league, so its the go-to for both formats.

So after i55 2 balance changes occurred. 1st was the Crusader's Crossbow buff which let you build uber off of healing via arrows. 2nd was meds got a buff which let them match their movement speed with a faster target no matter the medi-gunn (previously only for quick-fix). These 2 changes shifted the meta towards scout and away from soldier. People also realized that demos do way more with heals than soldiers, especially since double gunboats became the meta too (double gunboats made it so teams could move faster in transitions).

Best way to see the difference in the meta is to watch the i55 UBF of nR vs froyo and compare it to the i65 UBF of Ascent NA vs Se7en. Specifically watching how the soldiers and demos play.

I'd also add that if you're starting from the bottom bottom, a good place to start is Newbie Mixes. They run from around 9 to midnight every Friday night. If you wanna play more than that, there are plenty of newbie-friendly pug groups you can find through pug.tf.

also they nerfed arrow building, it isn't a thing any more

Ghad is correct here, arrow building was nerfed for the most part. Arrows still build uber, but not to the same extent, so the playstyle change that came from them initially stuck around to this day.

The uber you build with arrows is significantly slower than healing now. It is technically less punishing than when arrows built zero uber but when building uber is a priority you still just beam people. The only reason "the playstyle change that came from them initially stuck around to this day." is because arrows have the potential to heal at nearly 400 percent the speed of a medigun without critheals.
