July 28th Lan Coverage
Tagged: i52 i52tf2


Hildreth — As the Summer i-series approaches, European hopes will be laid on the mighty shoulders of Epsilon once more as they attempt to retain their World Champion status versus the might of North America and Australia’s Team Immunity. Epsilon managed to see off Awsomniac on Thursday night in a two map win, they retained their ETF2L crown for the 6th season running. The history books will say it was business as usual for European TF2, the formidable giants of the scene dominated and won – AGAIN. But when you take a closer look at how the past few months have gone for Epsilon, it was their worst season in years.

1 Month to go – #i52tf2

July 22nd Announcement
Tagged: i52


Hildreth – In 4 weeks and 3 days time, on Friday the 22nd August in the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, England the eyes of the TF2 world will be focused on the Insomnia 52 LAN event, the UK’s biggest gaming festival and by extension, TF2′s most coveted prize. The days of top European sides in attendance with multitudes of community teams from UK and mainland Europe are still here, but thanks to some hard work and generous donations for the third summer running, we will have not one, not two but THREE teams from different continents attending this event. North American pride is hurt after Epsilon’s victory last year at i49, so ESEA LAN winners Froyotech and i46 champions Classic Mixup have been sponsored by a HUGE community fundraiser raising over $14,000 to fly in these superstars to compete with the likes of Epsilon and Awsomniac (EU’s top 2 sides). And to add punch into the fruit bowl, it wouldn’t be a true “World Championship” without the attendance of the Australians, Team Immunity who surprised many including myself, finishing 4th in a tournament where they had beaten the 3rd and 2nd placed sides.

All in all this promises to be a truly memorable event and to celebrate the fact we have 1 month leading up, I will be a running a rather long winded, social media campaign, using the hashtag #i52tf2 to raise hype by releasing a series of articles leading up to the event. Not all will be directly related to i52, but they will all be TF2 related and hopefully an interesting read.

 

So for now sit back and countdown, we have only got 31 days to go!

June 21st News



“By the pricking of my thumb,

Something wicked this way comes” – William Shakespeare, MacBeth

Gentleman Jon — In what will be the last article of this kind because TF2 is now dead I’m taking a quick look at the immediate impact of the new sticky damage ramp up effect on the EU TF2 rules set. It’s only been a few days but there are some trends appearing on the pickup site logs. The data runs from the 18th to today (20th) from the tf2pickup site logs. This makes a good representation of the great unwashed proletariat TF2 competitive scene that applies to the most players, as opposed to the Olympian heights of the Premiership mix.

The prospect of Highlander Season 7

June 11th News


SuddenlyStarMia — In what was originally meant to be an article promoting the Highlander Season 6 Awards Show on Sunday, it became evident, unfortunately, when I broke 3000 words that it was unsuitable as a general news post and was destined to be its own singular entity. Fortunately however, it has allowed me more time to write an article which managed to outdo the infamously long post-i49 article I wrote. Before Highlander-lovers inadvertently engage in an abundant serving copious enough to appease their appetites until the HL Nations Cup, for reference purposes, I wrote a marginally controversial article three months ago (which I would shamelessly implore you to read alongside an article that I was prohibited to publish on ETF2L regarding the start of the season, merely for the purposes of recap), regarding affairs in certain Premiership teams. In it was a graph visualising predictions for Season 6. I caught up with each of the team leaders about how their teams are faring post-season and their plans (if any) for Season 7.
