#8709 stream highlights in Videos

The clip in question is taken completely out of context. The person I was speaking to (frogtree) is someone I've dealt with before as a streamsniper/troll and who has had previous reports against them in TF2PL for smurfing/alting, so I was approaching the situation with a bit of a combative demeanor, hoping to discourage them from doing anything disruptive in the game. When I heard them speak and compared it to previous times I had heard them speak, it seemed suspiciously different, so I thought it was a sign that they were trying to hide their voice on purpose. Uncovering alts is something I do regularly as an admin, and I thought this was just another alt to investigate. I can see how it can be misunderstood, and I am sorry about how the confrontation went and the confusion that followed. The next game we played together on the same team with no issues whatsoever. If frogtree is someone that is transitioning I was completely unaware, but would not be bothered by that fact. I have played with countless people in a similar position and have never made it a topic of contention. Everyone knows I'm much more focused on the game itself than on the personal lives of the players. As far as people's identities go, I'm very live and let live.

The person posting all this is a proud member of KAT and the Mireal Fanclub (racist and transphobic harassment groups) and uses plenty of derogatory names on his own, as you can see in these screenshots:

Their attempts to smear me through out of context clips only serve to distract bystanders from their actual stances. I'm not one of your fellow bigots.

Witchhunts based on lies help no one.

#81 cp_propaganda (5cp) in Map Discussion

The biggest issue on the current version of the map lies in the size of the choke points. The connectors between each point are too wide/open so the areas are very difficult to hold in general, and become next to impossible to hold at any sort of disadvantage. Since people can flood through every doorway and there are so many options for skybox walljumps, holding aggressively is impossible, and even holding at midrange is extremely risky. The only way to avoid getting wiped when defending at a disadvantage (by getting surrounded and your exits cut off) is to hold very passively, so points get given up for free when otherwise you might see fights. By making a few of the chokes smaller you would greatly improve this issue. In the following screenshots, green lines are where I would suggest adjusting the choke boundaries to, and any blue lines mark spots where clipping could be smoothed out a bit.

The next biggest issue I'd say would be the health location on middle. In the current position, it is quite awkward to access, especially for any demoman rolling out to mid, injured medics, or for teams after fighting their way through choke. If the health pack was more in the open near the banana stand, I think you'd find fights becoming more spread out across all of mid rather than being so stacked towards the cave/cafe area. Perhaps you could add a small health/ammo in the old spot if it seems necessary.

A clipping spot that should be smoothed. Backing into this room you can easily get caught here next to the stairs.

This perch should be removed. It allows you to see over the wall without being shot.

The majority of this room goes unused since the two passages are right next to each other. The wasted space could be reduced significantly.

The geometry of the points themselves and the immediate surrounding areas are quite nice, so with just the few changes to the chokes bringing the flow of the map to a more reasonable place, I think the map will be in a pretty great spot. Looking forward to the next versions. Good luck.

#60 its back in TF2 General Discussion

the preseason invite meeting that only people you bothered to message knew about

Whatever conspiracy narrative you're trying to weave has no basis in reality. There were representatives from every single potential invite team known at the time, and the entire thing was publicly streamed (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/303159134?t=1h41m04s lasts about 2 hours). If you had wanted to join in, you'd have been more than welcome. I get that your team was formed last minute and was unable to contribute to the discussions while they were still relevant, and that is far from ideal, but to be frank, even if you had been there and planned to contribute anything along the lines of "this item is annoying" I doubt you would have really made much difference in the outcome of the decisions.

#51 its back in TF2 General Discussion

Before you post, please actually look at the S29 whitelist. The only unbans were Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol, Atomizer, Cow Mangler 5000, Mantreads, Dragon's Fury, and Gas Passer. I'm sure tri can chime in on how the decisions were finalized, but it was mostly settled on after discussions during the preseason invite meeting where consensus was that adding this incremental batch of items would be seamless, which I'm confident you'll find that to be the case. Along with the other changes to the league structuring, this is best whitelist yet and should be the new standard that other leagues catch up to. Props to tri and ESEA for pushing for progress this season.

#5 ESEA New Prizing Structure in TF2 General Discussion

Great news. Should have really positive effects in the long run to discourage sandbagging, or rather to encourage playing the division you're most capable of. If we get to the point where people are fighting to play in invite rather than avoiding it we'll have done something that's never been achieved before. After this, the next thing I think ESEA should consider is stronger enforcement of professionalism/conduct rules (proper aliases, no forfeits, etc) to continue the strengthening of the community and it's culture of healthy competition. Thanks tri and ESEA for being willing to change structures in a way thats unique to TF2.

Removing badlands and granary for more modern style maps will do so much good for the map pool and flow of matches. Make it happen.

#3 Is Rewind 3 in trouble? in LAN Discussion

#333 TF2 Pro League in Projects

A few changes.

Picking Order Adjusted
Team picking order is now A-BB-AA-B-A-B. This means that the team that gets first pick will also get the last player remaining at the end of the picking process. This is intended to equalize the picking advantage between captains and provide more balanced games.

Amateur/Open Division Changes
The Amateur division has been renamed to the Open division. Open division will allow join of levels 4-10 and queue of levels 1-10. Essentially, anyone who has leveled out of Beginner or been allowed a division moveup may play in the Open division. Open division will be a place for players of all skill levels to mingle. It will be under the same strict behavior enforcement as Beginner division.

Join those divisions here: NA Open, EU Open

New Cooldowns, Bans, Rules
-Abandoner penalty has been increased to 1 week. Don’t leave games. We hope this change will make abandons much more uncommon.
-Permanent bans will be handed to any users that deliberately or repeatedly disrupt the experience of other players and the smooth operation of TF2PL.
-Any live matches with an abandoner (entire 5 minute grace period passed, outcome of match not clearly decided) can and will be canceled if an admin is informed. Any concluded matches with an abandoner that need Elo reverted now can and will be properly handled. We're implementing a new pathway of communication with FACEIT to ensure the reversion of Elo in ruined matches.

Regarding Reports
All reports with no specific evidence will be discarded. It is highly recommended that you provide screenshots, chatlogs or stream VODs of the situations you are reporting. All reports with specific evidence submitted will be evaluated normally.

Medic Prizing Adjustment
Medic prizes for the top 4 medics by ubercharges popped will be delivered in the form of Mann Co keys. Prizes will scale per division, with no ceiling, and no rounding, as follows: Beginner - 1 key/100 ubers, Open - 2 keys/100 ubers, Advanced - 3 keys/100 ubers, Invite - 4 keys/100 ubers

Prizes from S3+4, in accordance with these changes, will be posted tomorrow in the Discord. Be sure to check if you won anything.

#64 froyotech to i63 in TF2 General Discussion

After only 4 days of fundraising, we have met our goal for the i63 LAN campaign! All milestones will be fulfilled. I'm sure some people are still hoping to claim perks, so we will allow a 1 week grace period for final contributions, ending firmly after July 12th at Midnight PST.

Don't forget, to claim all perks please join the froyotech community discord (https://discord.gg/dz2dTz5) and post in the #i63-perk-redemption channel, and I will get in touch with you about coordinating your perks.

Thanks to everyone who supported us on this campaign. Looking forward to a great LAN showing.

#1 froyotech to i63 in TF2 General Discussion

WE MET OUR GOAL AND ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING CONTRIBUTIONS

froyotech will be attending i63 LAN this summer!

Roster:
b4nny
arekk
habib
yomps
garbuglio
cookiejake

Fundraiser:
In order to make this happen, we are fundraising to help cover the costs of travel, lodging, etc. Our team's total expenses come out to $6200, and we are looking to raise $2000. We will be accepting contributions in the form of cash or keys, as well as selling merch. Fundraising will begin today, July 1st, and will conclude on August 15th (or sooner if we meet our goal).

Our fundraiser features two simple bundles with personal perks to claim (raffle entries, weapon signings, demo reviews, interactive events, etc), but the main focus is on 40 milestone events - every $100 raised will unlock 1 event fulfilled by the team as a whole, and 1 event fulfilled by me personally. The milestones mostly center around special streams and videos that everyone in the community can enjoy and partake in. I will update the spreadsheet daily with our current fundraiser progress. An overview of all perks and milestones can be found below, as well as all avenues of contribution.
