#4 S31 Newbie Mix Team Drive in TF2 General Discussion

We've finished building the teams and have 5 teams going in to S31. 3 of the teams (18 players) have no experience outside of pugs and newbie mixes, and two are a mixture of UGC players and a few older mixes participants. All-in-all this will be roughly 32 people we've signed up into the season, and I hope you all will make them feel welcome in their first (and last) season of ESEA.

Teams, if you're curious:

We are also welcoming people who found out about the drive too late to sign up to be a sub or a replacement starter should the need arise:

#191 ESEA to drop tf2 after season 31??? in TF2 General Discussion

Newbie Mixes will continue with both of our Friday Night mixes to get new players into NA 6v6, and will also continue to do seasonal team drives for whatever league holds the premier competition in North America. We've done it for years with the intent of growing competitive 6v6 and empowering new players, and none of us see a reason to stop now, just because one league has dropped support.

We're also interested in doing collaborations with leagues for the events that we run to hopefully make transition from us to the leagues more intuitive.

And on a personal note, yes, thank you tri for putting up with all of that crap for years! You da best.

#1 Newbie Mixes LFP S31 Low Open - Players and Teams! in Recruitment (looking for players)

Hello! Are you a newer 6s player looking to get into ESEA and you perhaps have found yourself lacking in tryouts and/or friends and/or experience, but you really want to play on a team next season? Consider signing up to the NA Newbie Mixes ESEA team drive, and we'll give you a team, friends (hopefully), and experience!

Here's how it works:
- You fill out the application with details about yourself, your goals, your availability and your experience
- We, the newbie mixes admins, will then match you with players who have similar goals (and hopefully personalities) plus a similar level experience, to build complete teams to tackle S31 of ESEA.
- We will also give you an experienced buddy/coach (someone who has been through many seasons of ESEA) to help your new team through the inevitable ups and downs of your season

Interested? Come sign up here:

Please only sign up if you are interested in committing to the team you're placed on - i.e. if you want to do tryouts, you can do them; but please make up your mind by April 15th and either keep your application for the drive, or edit it to say you are no longer interested. Thanks!

If you have any questions you can ask them here or in the Discord. See you all soon!

#1078 Vent your anger in Off Topic

I went to pick something up later at night yesterday and come home to find that someone's taken the spot I was parked in. No big deal, I start looking for some other place to park, and find a spot just big enough for my car in front of this woman who parked her Accord right in the middle of what was most definitely two car's worth of parking space. So I start parking, and the Accord starts wailing its panic siren. It turns off and then on again any time I move, pretty obviously being triggered from somewhere by a fob, because I'm like 5 feet away from the car and the siren is delayed by obvious reaction times any time I move. Eventually I'm like fuck this shit, go park in an even smaller space further away, and then come back to take a photo of the Accord's license plate to send the image to the building manager to tell this woman to either buy her own parking spot or street park like a proper human being.

She starts yelling at me from the balcony, and I'm just basically like, what the fuck is your problem? And she's like "well you were going to hit my car." And I was like bitch, are you for fucking real? First of all, YOU parking like this is why it would have made parking for me difficult in the first place (I still wouldn't have hit her car, but it was a small parking space, and me and one other person in the immediate neighbourhood are probably the only two people with cars small enough to fit the space she left). Second of all, you're not the only one who cares about your car, and I have no interest in hitting your car because it means my pristine, washed-weekly, polished and waxed car has to make contact with your giant piece of shit that's taking up two parking spots. And she's like "well I've been hit before". Oh that's nice, guess what - me too. That's the fucking risk you take when you street park and don't pony up for your own parking stall. I have scratches on my fenders because a few idiots weren't careful. I still fucking park like a considerate individual, leave larger spaces for larger cars, and make sure to try and make as much space near me so that another neighbor can try parking their car there. Nobody actively tries to hit other people's vehicles. Like, are you for fucking real?

And of course she's sitting there chain-smoking, making sure nobody can park their car next to hers.

Maybe if you put the cigarettes down for one second, Betty Boop, you'd be able to afford the insurmountable $25 a month that gives you access to your own ~private~ parking stall away from all of the ~plebeians~.

#1 LF Medic Mentor in Mentoring

Hello, I'm looking for a medic mentor to help me shake off some rust.

I've played a somewhat embarrassing amount of seasons before I had to quit for IRL stuff, but most of them have been on demo, and my medic decisions are frequently questionable. I especially want to work on heal priority in fights, positioning in mid fights and situations where I should commit to a fight even if it looks kinda gross.

I would appreciate a mentor who has played a number of seasons, ideally in at least IM. You can add me here:

#73 what'd you get for christmas? in Off Topic

So my mother, who is a tiny blond Russian woman with a heavy British accent (don't ask why), sits down my whole family in front of the Christmas tree and announces (and I quote) "This year, we decided the theme was 'who will get the most retarded present'!" I just kinda sit there going huh, okay, this is new.

She gifted us a pair of non-matching pink, yellow and green pillows with our names on it, and matching cat-shaped cups that have four very long legs. My little sister gave me a giant bear pillow. My mom's boyfriend gave me a carrot that he wrapped in layers of duct tape and paper towels. I think the best gift was the absolutely amazing dinner beforehand though, which she apparently worked on for 15 hours.

I'm pretty happy with the NON-THEMED presents I gave them. (Model train for my mom, Stuffed dog for the boyfriend because he collects them, and a pack of creative writing/plotting supplies for my sister)

Also TONY is getting me car stuff which I am genuinely excited about. :D

cre-8 edit your post in the sign-up thread, if you think you need help getting paid for. We do not guarantee starter positions to people who cannot pay for themselves.

There's just under a week left, and we totally appreciate any help you can give us, including just shout-outs!

jetzzzzzIts fucking insane how i can achieve impressive feats of hand/eye coordination in vidya and irl sports but if i try to do anything with a pencil it looks like the doodlings of a retarded child despite me putting in my maximum effort and having literally 100s of hours of practice at drawing/writing.

Like holy fuck do i have a disability why cant i write legibly and draw something coherent

If you did not hone your fine motor skills as a child and focused instead on sports and video games, then you simply have not developed that part of your brain. You have the greatest capacity to learn before the age of 7, and after age 12 the unused neurons begin rapid degeneration. My partner is the same - great at sports and video games, but give him a pencil or a needle and it looks like he has Parkinson's. That's why you also feel like you have a "disability" - because you actually do not have enough neural connections to perform the action you expect of yourself.

The good news is adult neural plasticity is a thing and you can very well learn the skill even though you're past the prime nervous development age. The bad news is that it's going to take a concentrated amount of effort on your part - much more than you would have needed to do as a kid. But if you push through and embrace the suck, you will eventually get almost* as good as if you started in your childhood.

*there's a differing consensus on whether you're actually able to recapture the full childhood potential or not via adult neural plasticity. I think the colloquial wisdom is that you can't, but I'm sort of out of touch in that field to speak to it with any certainty. In any case, you can still get very, very respectable at what it is that you want to learn to do. Source: I specialized in neural development in my degree before I became a librarian.

#1013 Vent your anger in Off Topic

My step-father abused me and my mom since I was 7 years old, until she finally found the strength to divorce him when I was 19, and my sister was 7. I'm 27 now. For the past 8 years they have engaged in a war of attrition, with him trying to grind down and control her, and my mother fighting back, me starting my own family and moving away from the mess.

My stupid 14-year-old sister went and told her school councilor that my mother's boyfriend emotionally abuses her. Now I happen to know the boyfriend quite well and I know exactly what he did to provoke my sister into doing that. I hold him responsible for being a stubborn fuck and not recognizing that a teenager mind is not the same as his adult clients (he's a therapist and life coach) and that he pushed her way too far in a direction that she physiologically and psychologically is just incapable of going (he was trying to get her to take responsibility for her emotions in a way that adults can, but teenagers just do not have the mental stability to handle that kind of a request, which obviously seems extremely unfair when you're put in that situation).

The problem? Her actual abusive asshole of a father is putting on a WHOLE fucking show to get back at my mother. He's called every fucking official person he can to get them on his side, because his ultimate goal is to hurt my mother and isolate my sister so that she can be his next target of abuse - which is extremely beneficial, because not only does that give him a new punching bag, but it also hurts my mother in the process. He's now flapping all of his fucking feathers in front of my sister, buying her all kinds of shit, letting her do whatever she wants, just to convince her that he's her saviour the same way he did my mother and me, so he can isolate her enough where she would have nowhere to go. And the 14-year-old is, of course, falling for absolutely every scrap of it, because she's a fucking child and you can't expect a child to be able to identify when they're being groomed.

My mom and my step-dad and the boyfriend are all adults so I honestly could not give one flying piece of shit about any of them because they're big kids and can deal with their own problems. But I am absolutely fucking LIVID that my sister has gotten dragged into it for so long. It's so fucking unfair to her, unfair to her childhood. She has no home because the goddamn morons insist that she travels from one house to another every week just so my step-father can try and groom his next abuse victim and so my mother can get back at her ex-abuser (and also probably protect my sister, but I do notice that she hasn't attempted to fight for full custody).

I'm also honestly mad at myself for not getting involved earlier, for staying quiet and trying to play nice with both sides. I called the fucking asshole yesterday and told him I'd take him out for dinner for his birthday because EIGHT FUCKING YEARS AGO he hurt me for not wishing him a happy birthday. I should've known something was up when I could hear him smiling through his phone and telling me that he'll think about it.

It's on, motherfucker. It's fucking on.

Also, I'm not a huge fan of the Chiron's appearance, nor do I feel a particular need for four digits worth of horsepower, but holy shit what they did with the interior and controls is mega classy:

Also I would already own this little guy... if it wasn't for the 15-year law on imports. :(
