Im joining my first basketball rec league since high school in November and I'm happy it's given me more motivation to get back in the gym and starting relearning about a sport I've always enjoyed playing :)

Respectfully, no :)
After reading this thread up and down for about 30 minutes and bottling some thoughts knowing this log existed, I wanted to share some thoughts. If I get any concrete information wrong regarding the situation, please let me know so I can appropriately correct myself!
First and foremost, racism and transphobia is not cool. I care a lot about this community and love the game, priority number one is making sure we do our best as a community to not harbor hate. The Match Comm chat logs were disgusting, deplorable and a gross reminder that a living human specifically chose those words to cause harm.
Seeing a response like the one Hubida posted in the Match Comms really breaks my heart. This was over a ringer...in a video game? Just now getting an apology 11 months after the fact is suspect, but I'm happy he's starting to take a tiny step towards getting better.
Hubida, you're very lucky b4nny is giving you a chance as a player to prove yourself in the top of Invite and a platform as a person to demonstrate change. I don't know you very well and my limited reference for how you are as a person currently is that Match Comms page, but I currently have zero respect for you and believe you're still getting off way too easy.
You mentioned in your TwitLonger that you're working on it, which is very good! I can respect a person who is actively trying to get better and can admit fault but please don't stop here. Healing and growing is a process and shouldn't stop after 11 months. Don't stop trying to learn and improve because people aren't watching. Don't stop years later when you're not playing this game anymore.
Show the community in positive, constructive ways that you can act like an adult and demonstrate decency.
Show me and others that you're capable of empathy, understanding, and growing up.
Most importantly, show everyone that you're being sincere and serious about getting better as a person.
Hi everyone! I hope you all made it back home safe after LAN and if you were watching from home, had as much fun as we did on staff spectating the event over the course of the weekend.
Firstly, We’d like to open this post by humbly and genuinely thanking everyone who made this event happen:
- Our production crew, for grinding incredibly long hours to make a fantastic show happen.
- Our administrative staff, who worked diligently to ensure the tournament ran as smoothly as possible.
- Competitors who made the trek out to Philly and participated. Without the players, it’s hard to imagine an event even happening in the first place. From the Invite teams to the NC PUG teams, thank you all so much.
- Everyone who took time out of their day to watch live. Your support for our players and teams is a great motivator and drives us to bring you the best viewing experience possible.
- LocalHost and NerdStreet for giving us a wonderful platform and venue to operate this event. The staff was a joy to work with and very helpful in making sure any hardware issues were dealt with as best as their powers would allow.
- Every single person who went the extra mile to donate and support our project. RESUP.gg is a team that works tirelessly to elevate the game we love to higher levels. We strive to give our all to support our community and feeling the warmth of those who similarly believe in us is truthfully humbling, thank you all so much!
- Finally, we’d like to express our gratitude for our event sponsor, Marketplace.tf! Running a business is difficult enough as is, but you went the extra mile and supported RESUP.gg and the greater TF2 community anyway to enable us to make this event truly one of the most memorable ones in North America. Thank you!

Hello everyone! Can you believe we're nearly 2 weeks away from LAN in Philly? Everyone has been working really hard on our end at RESUP.GG to bring you the most premium, hassle-free LAN experience in NA!
Per tradition, we'd like to make sure everyone is well informed about what we've been working on every one to two weeks. Here's a taste!
LFT/LFP Reminder, Sign up today!
We're currently sitting at 18 confirmed teams for LocalHost Philadelphia, which is already 7 more teams than our previous event in Fullerton! RESUP.GG would like to thank everyone for turning up and expressing eagerness to participate! Currently, our goal is to try and fill out the remaining slots to cap our event at 20 teams. If you're still LFT, we urge you to consider reaching out to others trying to get a taste of their first LAN participation experience. You can find our official LFT/LFP Sheet here, as well as start conversations in our community Discord here.
Our dedicated staff will happily assist with assembling teams for those interested!
Groups, Tournament Structure, Map Pool
For LocalHost Philadelphia, RESUP.GG will be separating teams into a 4 Invite group and two Open groups, all three groups will be facing off in a Round Robin scheduling structure within their respective groups. For the first day of the competition (Group Stages), the smaller Invite group will be playing out their matches on the stage while the Open groups will utilize the floor PCs to complete their matches.
As Group Stages concludes, the top 2 teams from each Open group and all of the Invite teams will continue into a double elimination playoff format.
The format for the group stages and playoffs will be:
- All Day 1 matches (group stages through playoffs round 1) will be Bo1.
- All remaining playoffs matches, including all elimination matches will be Bo3.
- Grand Finals will be a pick/ban Bo5 with a map advantage for the upper bracket finalist.
The RESUP.GG Map Pool will mirror the RGL.GG Map Pool from the current Traditional Sixes season. The list of eligible maps is as follows:
Should be the S9 Invite map pool:
Our event schedule will be jam-packed with some of the best in the country showcasing their skills! Here are some notes regarding what to expect while attending LocalHost Philadelphia:
- Teams will be required to check in no later than 10:30 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
- The venue will run late for our event both Saturday and Sunday, with extended hours up to 12 a.m.
- Saturday will feature a 1-hour long break from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to allow teams time to rest, refresh, and refuel.
RESUP.GG would like to thank everyone for their interest, enthusiasm, and eagerness to bring TF2 LAN back with splendor! Everyone on staff is excited to see you in Philadelphia!
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to DM b4nny or me over on Discord @ b4nny#0323 and Witness#3415
Have a great week, everyone!
Post Edit: Hi everyone! I had made some errors regarding the map pool we'll be using for this event and we had some slight changes to the tournament schedule (specifically Bo1s and Bo3s). Apologies for any misunderstandings this may have caused! I pledge to be better in the future!
6/10/22 Edit: This update comes from a LocalHost PH employee. There is construction going on around the building so please planning accordingly when showing up to the venue!
Starting tomorrow (6/10/22) the Broad & Callowhill street corner will be open to enter The Blocks front doors and the current entry way will be blocked off for the next part of construction. This should make entering the facility a little easier now.
Anyone taking Public Transportation is suggested to get off at the Race and Vine stop.
I'm down, we play Friday?
Hi everyone! I hope you're all well and having a nice start to the week! I'm bringing a beefier update regarding LAN this time around, so I'll try my best to make each segment as digestible as possible! We've been working really hard over at RESUP.gg to bring you the best possible LAN experience and we're beyond excited to share what we have so far!
Team Sign-ups Hard Cap
With the sheer number of potential teams forming and the limited PC space we have reserved, RESUP.gg will be setting a hard 20 team participation cap for this RESUP.gg event. If you haven't already, we urge teams to purchase event tickets as soon as possible for two reasons:
1. Guarantee your spot as an event participant. If you have a team, but fail to register in time (after we reach the 20 team cap) through NerdStreet, you may be disallowed from participating in "The Block" LAN.
2. Allows us over on the RESUP.gg administration side have a more clear, definitive view on who's confirmed attending.
You can purchase tickets here, please make sure everyone on your team is registered on the NerdStreet site so you can add them to the roster inside of the website as soon as possible!
All teams signing up to compete should expect long, busy, and packed schedules from Saturday to Sunday. Check-in will begin at 10:30 a.m. and the venue will remain open until 12 a.m. each day.
For those seeking to go the extra mile and get rewarded, we'd like to remind everyone that our official crowdfunding campaign is still ongoing over on the RESUP.gg site!
Looking for a shout-out for helping on stream or from a favorite player? We got you!
Trying to get an item signed from a player or team or your choice? We can arrange that!
Just want to enjoy a nice cheesesteak with some of NA TF2's finest talent? It can happen!
Bonuses and rewards from a project like this contribute to something bigger. Our grassroots community grows and thrives from the good faith considerations from our community members. Your support goes a long way and all of us from RESUP.gg and the greater TF2 community thank you for your help!
You can also support our efforts with direct donations or picking up some quality apparel in our shop!
As always, updates regarding LAN, future RESUP.gg projects, and general conversations alongside specific planning for RESUP.gg events can be found over in our Discord. For example, did you know we're hosting a Pros vs. Youtubers segment on Friday May 27th @ 5pm PST?!
Please make sure you have a Steam or Twitch account linked to your Discord account for swift verification on our end.
Thanks everyone for the overwhelming interest in our projects! Per usual, we're beyond excited to bring the wonders of LAN back to the community and specifically to the East coast this time around for so many teams!
Happy Monday! I hope you've all had a great weekend! No long(ish) news this week, but we have an update regarding a 'soft deadline' for team registration over on Nerdstreet
June 1st Soft Signup Deadline
Due to the fantastic increase in teams forming and looking to play this LAN event, we'd like to let people know there is potential for a soft deadline for our event and it's recommended that groups purchase event Team Tickets sooner rather than later to reserve your spot in the event that we run out of space! RESUP.GG recommends that all teams planning to attend purchase their event tickets before June 1st to guarantee their spot!
Per usual, you can check the Team Spreadsheet to see how progress is coming along for teams forming!
To stay fully informed on any information updates regarding "The Block" LAN in Philly, or other projects by RESUP.GG, we encourage everyone to join our official Discord!
Hey everyone! I hope you're all excited for LAN in Philly in just about a month! I wanted to make a quick post with some smaller updates, just to keep everyone in the loop. I’m happy to announce that I’ve been brought onto the RESUP LAN staff as one of the Tournament Admins, so you can expect to be hearing a lot from me as the event approaches. I’m really excited to be a part of a project that puts the future of our game and community first :)

Speaking of building teams, I’m happy to share that we’re rolling out an official RESUP LAN Team Sheet for all teams and players LFT for the event.

We’ll answer all of your questions in the discord, additionally, you can add me on Steam here (please leave a comment before adding!) or send me a DM on Discord @ Witness#3415
Probably mechanically better than most of Main on scout, easily good enough to play on a top 4 team in the division. Teams with serious intentions to place or outright win and have the patience to properly teach the format to em have the potential to be greatly rewarded.
I'm not local, but I've been putting together a small travel guide featuring ideas for how to save on flights, some information about the venue and surrounding area, and a great variety of food options around the venue recommended to me by friends and Localhost employees!
This is still a work in progress, but I hope it helps!
he has a 2nd full-time job farming on community harvest servers. Imagine the amount of winning you'll do if he applies his harvest grind to your team...
Incredibly happy to be sponsoring this event, always really exciting to see new ideas push the status quo! Special shoutout to Kaidus, the tournament staff, and everyone planning to do coverage for this event!
Nearly a year in for a bump, I think I'm going to have a good amount of free time for the summer for grinding more and playing!
I'd like to play either Scout role, pretty comfortable wherever your team might need me!
I can offclass pretty well too!
