KnightComp is a brand new competitive gamemode that capitalizes on TF2's sheer lack of Demoknight gameplay in competitive play. Meant purely for Demoknight players to either goof around in or compete to be the best, KnightComp is meant to allow Demoknight players to finally step foot in some form of competitive TF2 for once.
It is a mode built for fast-paced gameplay, very much like the original 6v6 mode it is based on, but KnightComp is very different in its own way. A lot of classes and some weapons are cut out of the game, leaving you with mostly projectile weapons and swords with few exceptions. This forces players to adapt via changing loadouts. For example, you can counter Splendid Screen Demos by using the Tide Turner to stay out of range and use grenades. Or counter that Tide Turner strategy by using the Targe to absorb explosives. Or counter that Targe strategy by using the Splendid Screen to have an advantage in melee combat.
We've been playtesting the mode and have found it to work very well on standard 6v6 maps. We are running a mini league with two divisions, one for EU and one for NA. We hope to be a home for Demoknights, like how Ready Steady Pan is a home for frying pan enthusiasts.
We have a set of cool medals up for grabs, which were added in the last TF2 update.
