Tagged: ABC Tuesday arx Beta Comedian crack clan

Beta — Wow Tuesday comes around quickly doesn’t it? Being Tuesday, it means it’s time for our next edition of ABC Tuesday.  Tonight we have some ETF2L Premiership action for you with Crack Clan vs Quarantine.

Crack Clan are currently sitting at the bottom of the division, though are yet to confirm Sunday’s win over Decerto. That said, unless you have been living in a box for the last 4 weeks, you will be already well aware of the roster changes within the team. Players coming in where – p0Le, ReveraL and Tarkus, who all joined from Division 1 team aVenue eSports. The player making the space has been HarryHook, who has already been spotted elsewhere.

Now for Quarantine, another team that is currently sitting very close to the drop zone of the division. With only winning 1 map of the current 6 played, they have also picked up points on a Golden Cap loss against Punchline.

If Quarantine team can win across both maps tonight, they will leapfrog Team Decerto, nonamefound, Punchline and Crack Clan. Of course, they would have played more maps but it’s a pretty prize.

So tonight, please join the ABC Tuesday team nice and early at 20:15 CEST for what could be the first relegation battle of the season

Here’s another one of those interactive posts, where I put things out, and you can fill in the blanks. Let’s rumble!

As we’ve covered before, the last Infused is no more, while they’re said to make a final appearance together at the upcoming Epic lan. Meanwhile, scouting protégé Greg is at work with a new roster to compete in i43. I had the pleasure of having a chat with him earlier, and he confirmed the following preliminary lineup:

Hat (medic)
Boomeh (soldier)
Ghent (soldier, trialling)
Numlocked (demo)
Greg (scout)
” Viqun (scout)

With Numlocked confirmed, this will surely throw some pebbles into the cogs of Epsilon (see below). Furthermore, Mike (soldier, k1ck) is also rumored to be a candidate, but this is unconfirmed.

Announcing VanillaTV


May 26th Announcement
Tagged: cast etf2l radio vanillatf2 VanillaTV vanillatv

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts – Aristotle

Not to beat around the bush, today is the official birth of a collaborative project between TF2tv, VanillaTF2, and a prospected development of the old ETF2L radio – VanillaTV. I don’t have the habit of pulling Dr.Philian greek philosopher quotes outta my ass, but I can’t think of a better wording for the motivation our project. ETF2L radio had a strength in its quality control, and the share spectacle of any cast they did to prove it. TF2tv had a notorious chase for providing a quantity of match coverage to the masses, with consistency in streams and video on demand. With VanillaTV, we want to combine those strengths in one place, together with all the discussions and information surrounding our games. On a foundational level, the decision is a no brainer.

The hard decision, was done by Byte (ETF2L radio), Comedian (TF2tv), and their respective teams. The merger of the 3 services requires forsaking certain liberties and hours of former work hours for structure, for the sake of “the greater (longterm) good”. It’s a mature and noble decision, one deserving recognition.

The project won’t be a revolution, and there’s no intention of patting ourselves on the backs just yet. Like the birth of this very news site, it will be a continuous work in progress – iterative solutions, with hopes of as much help and contributions from anyone interested, as possible.

Editorial: Bon voyage, bros: Part 2


May 19th Announcement

This is Darn. As team leader of the most winning team in TF2, and with a straight shooting charisma superior to most, Darn has been one of the most outspoken voices in the quest to promote our game. -The front of the “VanillaTF2” movement, a champion of “what’s good for TF2”.

Darn is also the guy that would lead Dignitas into dropping out of AFS and, the latest, ESL, once it became clear that all chance for winning were lost. He was the man in charge of (not) ordering plane tickets to get Dignitas to i42, the man who was spotted on IRC arguing how prem is great, only to destroy a perfectly fine game just hours later – Yes, a team game is only as strong as its weakest link, so fragile 1 person can destroy it by ragequitting, fucking about, or event steal another team’s opponents, let alone dropping in an out of leagues at their own leisure.

Darn is in many ways the true personification of our game: Ambitious, but with a severe lack of consistency.

I could chase nerds around, or I could just make a post, and let nerds come fourth. Being lazy, I went with the latter:

Stefan and Bash already left the ETF2L roster, and team leader Marco untagged on steam, as well as confirmed the fold on IRC. Reportedly, some of their players are hoping for the upcoming Brink to catch on. The news comes after several weeks of BB inactivity. Who will stay? Will Numlocked team up with remaining Epsilon players?

Crack Clan
Hykleri is back as scout, and Drosophile says on tf2.europe that he left the team

We already mentioned Codcrille (medic) looking for team mates in an earlier post. The plans seems to get a foothold, as he’s seen playing with former knights players Zebbosai (soldier) and Nor. Destructo (demo), Vadrigar (scout) and  Blade (soldier) has also been seen playing with them. What’s the deal, boys?

Update: Apparently, Zebbozai was a merc, and their main roster includes none other than former wotr player and pickup superhero, Nos.

Missed anything? Gief updates!

Anyone who feels the urge to type “tf2 is dead” in comments, is a vegetarian! – Torden
