Headlines / NIGHT OF THE STEAMED HAMS!
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on January 31, 2018, 11:18:45 PM »


When it comes to the concept of memes, sometimes you just have to stand back and bear witness to it, for even then there is no rational explanation. And that's what we have with this week's map.

It's called "Steamed Hams," and it's apparently based upon a Simpsons episode. I don't know. This map is a Player Destruction map. In all essence, each player has a steamed ham inside of them, and you have to collect as many as you can and deliver them to the blue house that's on fire.

It's a meme, it doesn't have to make sense. Still, come join us and bear witness to this.

So come join us as we push carts and catch some rays!

I have about 4,300 hours on the game and still play regularly.   I've actually been thinking a lot lately as to why I still play this game, or rather why I still haven't stopped playing after sevenish years.  When I first started playing heavily back in 2012 (although I started playing in 2011),  the main thing that drove me for the first ~200 hours to keep playing was how new and interesting the game was.  I could play solely on 2fort for hours and not get bored.  However, I don't think that the game's mechanics themselves warrant how much time I've put in this game, because after about 800 hours of playing you should know the ins and outs of every weapon and know most of the maps, and there really isn't anything new left to experience after 1,000 hours in-game.  To be honest, what kept me hooked after around 500 hours was two things:  the people I had met through the game and the thought of getting better at the game.  When I came to TF2, I really wasn't in the best place in life, and the connections I made in it were what kept me going, and having something of a hobby gave me something to come home to and unwind with.

But now, seven years later I am in a completely different place in life and in the game.  Nothing in the game is new for me to enjoy.  Many of the communities/teams I've joined, while they hold a place somewhere in my heart, aren't nearly as important to my every day life as they were when I started playing, and at this point I have hit a level of proficiency in the game that I am comfortable with.  Every reason I used to play this game is mostly gone, and when I think about it, the only reason I can come up with for why I still play this game is that when my interest in the communities/getting better/exploring the mechanics started to wane, the pride I felt from how far I've come in the game replaced those things.  I honestly think that this happens with every hobby/activity you might participate in, it's simply natural to get kind of bored just because there's nothing new there for you to learn or get better at, and from there pride takes its place.  Whether you stick with it or not depends on how long that pride can stay strong.  For me, personally, I think that pride is starting to drop off, and as soon as something new for me to latch on to comes along, TF2 will probably no longer be something I play outside of the occasional boot up.

All that said, I'll always love TF2.  It'll always be up there in my favorite games and I will always think of it highly.

General Discussion / And after so long...
« Last post by Endymion on January 18, 2018, 05:03:21 AM »
So, I'm awake at 5 AM. This never happens.

As I'm looking over [MiT]'s forums, I was reminded that I've been out of touch with most of the other group members, save a select few. (I'm also aware that this is a necropost since the last topic was back in 2015. Don't kill me over this.) It also came to light that the game I've put over 3,000 hours into is over 10 years old. That's a long time. And as time passes, interests change. People change.

Which brings me to the reason behind this post. Some people have moved on from this 10-year-old game, but I'd like to know how many of our members still play TF2 today. And if possible, their reasoning behind it. Me? After 3,000 hours and a few bad financial decisions, I've come to love the game for what it is: a timeless masterpiece that made an awesome community. It can never get old or stale to me.

What about you?

Necropost? Don't make me laugh. If Scooter was late then that makes me... what, dead? Way overdue? Honestly, who cares? The system still exists and so does this thread. May as well use it.

Headlines / SHORELEAVE NIGHT
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on January 18, 2018, 12:37:22 AM »


With all the freezing going on, I thought this weekend's event should give us all a warm break from it all with Shoreleave!

From the crazed mind that brought us TrainSawLazer, this Payload map is a relaxing cityscape that is relaxing yet challenging at the same time!

So come join us as we push carts and catch some rays!

Headlines / [MiT] GOES GOLFING (WITH FRIENDS)
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on January 04, 2018, 12:02:18 AM »



Back over the Memorial Day weekend, we ran a Golf With Your Friends outings for our event, and we had a fair enough turnout that we had plenty of good times. And with the new year needing something fun to kick it off, I decided to dust off this game and offer it up as 2018's first event!

So, here's how we'll do this: We'll have our own lobby to start, with [MiT] as part of the lobby name. If we need more spots, we'll create another lobby for people to join. Then we just play. Should be simple, I'd think.

Also, if we can spare the seats, feel free to join us on our Teamspeak channel during the event, since it's more fun to golf and chat with your friends!

So, come join us for some fun and frivolity as we hit the links (and dodge when it hits back)!

Headlines / MEDIEVAL MADNESS NIGHT

It's time to travel back in time and bludgeon one another in Medieval Madness Night! A fan favorite with flying Scotsmen, longbow Snipers and Medics of mercy, among others, this is sure to be one hell of a medieval moot.

At least, for the first half. Probably for the second half, we'll go all "Player's Choice" for the map, but wherever we end up, we should have a good time!

Headlines / BRAZIL NIGHT
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on November 29, 2017, 10:45:17 PM »


Yeah, sorry about last week. Was out of town visiting relatives.

Anyway, I owe everyone an event, and we still have a few maps from the Jungle Inferno we haven't tried out yet, so I figured we'd try out one of the two new King of the Hill maps: Brazil.

Honestly, it was either this or Lazarus, and this one won the coin flip. We might just try out the other one at the halfway point. We'll just have to see.

Anyway, come shake off the turkey coma and join us for some fun!

Headlines / ENCLOSURE NIGHT!
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on November 08, 2017, 11:28:53 PM »


Well, that happened...

Before the final Halloween event, we received the long overdue "Jungle Inferno Update!" (Insert semi-sarcastic Yay here) And with it, five new maps for us to try out.

Since we tried out the Mercenary Park map last time, we'll be trying out Enclosure, which is a 3-stage Payload map that sends us right into the middle of a Jurassic Park knock-off. Figures. Anyway, come join us as we dig up some old fossils and push the cart through pre-history!
