General Discussion / Re: So long and thanks for all the games!

It was (and still is) an honor and a privilege, Healz.

You take care of yourself, and we'll be seeing you when our paths cross again.

General Discussion / So long and thanks for all the games!
« Last post by Dr. Healz on December 02, 2018, 09:33:41 PM »
"See ya later!"

When I first started playing on MiT's TF2 servers a number of years ago, I didn't expect to be a part of a community that would be present in my life for years to come.

The year is 2010. Map: Turbine. Game mode: CTF. Just recently moved into my dorm freshman year, and was trying to play on a cheap laptop I purchased in high school. With a low framerate coming from not having a GPU, the best I could do was heal those that could actually contribute to the fight. Which is how I came up with my namesake at the time.

I tried other servers to play on, but they were littered with mandatory ad viewing, paid memberships, and toxic players. I ended up being a regular on MiT servers because mods held players accountable for their behavior and the usual annoyances of other servers weren't present.

After being a regular, I always looked forward to new events. My favorite being dodgeball. They always brought out the best play in our community, and helped build our capability to use teamwork to solve problems. Joining the community helped me build bonds with other members, and having friends to play games with was something that I thoroughly enjoyed while I pursued my degree.

Through my first two years, I struggled in college. I had to exit in 2012 for about a year and a half due to poor performance, and fell into a depression. On top of all that, I had developed medical issues as well. During those times, playing games with MiT members helped keep me afloat despite my surroundings, education/employment status, and medical shortcomings.

I eventually went back to college and finished my degree. Got my medical condition into remission, too. I eventually got my life together, but through the good and the bad, the MiT community was a safe haven for me to have fun.

I just wanted to leave a message to those that still run the community to say one thing. Thank you. This community gave me solace during a very important turning point in my life, and I'm not sure where I'd be if I didn't have you all to spend my time with.

I've moved a lot the last couple of years, and had a lot change. But I still play games! I mostly play fighting games, Street Fighter and Dragonball FighterZ. Occasionally Overwatch too, Smash Ultimate when it comes out. If you want to play, don't be afraid to hit me up.

This isn't a goodbye, so much as a thank you send-off. I'm thankful for what this community gave me over the years, and the people that I got to connect with. And I hope you all find what helps you be happy in life during your most difficult times, like I did here.

Later!

I'm going to be honest, but this weekend, I just felt like we all could use a break from the crazy and just hang out for some good old-fashioned fun on Turbine.

Also, as a forewarning, I'm going to be out of town over the Thanksgiving weekend, which would be our next event per the two-week schedule, so I'm going to postpone that one for a week. Just a heads up.

Headlines / [MiT]'s ANNUAL HALLOWEEN SPOOK-TACULAR, PART 2
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on October 25, 2018, 12:29:38 AM »



Looks like Valve came through again...

For the second of our [MiT]'s Halloween Spook-taculars, we're actually going to do something ground-breaking. This year, Valve finally released some new maps for Halloween, and we're gonna play on one of them!

Our first map is one of the two new KOTH maps: Slasher, and it's a doozy! Why? Underworld portals! Merasmus! The Horsemann! Monoculus! Skeletons... Just about everything!

So come join us for one last hurrah of spooky as we play KOTH: Slasher!

Door Prizes
With the new update, I'm offering 3 Violet Vermin Crate Keys as door prizes for this event. If you want a shot at any of them, be sure to attend!

I'll Steam-chat the link to as many MiT members who attend the night, but if you're not on my friend's list, expect an invite. :)

Map
We'll probably start at Slasher (koth_slasher) and head out from there.

Rules
-Standard MiT Rules apply.
-Members and regulars get first dibs on seats.
-Our Boss Monster Rule will not be in effect this event, because Valve hard-coded TF2 to basically prevent that from happening. Thanks, Valve!

It's that time of the year again...

Yes, once again it's time for [MiT]'s Annual Spook-tacular events! Each event during the month of October will feature some of the numerous Scream Fortress maps (plus any new ones if Valve ever releases another one) so if you're still missing any of those spooky achievements or loot, now's as good a time as any to stop in for some fun.

As usual, we will be enforcing the Boss Monster rule we pride ourselves on, but besides that, come join us in our annual festival of frights!

Door Prizes
Thought I'd change things up a bit this week. This week's door prizes are 3 Mann Co Standard Crate Keys. If you want a shot at any of them, be sure to attend!

I'll Steam-chat the link to as many MiT members who attend the night, but if you're not on my friend's list, expect an invite. :)

Map
We'll probably start at Ghost Fort (koth_lakeside_event) and head out from there.

Rules
-Standard MiT Rules apply.
-Members and regulars get first dibs on seats.
-On maps with Boss Monsters, when said monster arrives, nobody is to kill enemy players while the monster is present, and all weapons fire is to be directed towards the boss monster. We will enforce this rule as Griefing, and you can and will be kicked from the event if you habitually break this rule.

Headlines / 2FORT PARTY!
« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on September 26, 2018, 11:18:34 PM »



So, I was out of town last week for family reasons, which meant I had to postpone our weekly get-together. Truth be told, I would've had to postpone either now or next month when I'll really be incommunicado.

Anyway, our Party series of stock maps have been having some decent enough turnouts, so we'll be heading back to 2Fort for this weekend's event. We might change the map if things get too stale, but we'll figure it out then.

So stop on in and join in on the fun with us!

« Last post by ScooterYDKJ on August 29, 2018, 10:40:43 PM »



Don't let go...

For this week's event, I had to go way into the archives to bring out an old map that we haven't tried in over a year: Facing Worlds. Yes, the floating asteroid CTF map in space. We're going there. There'll also be low gravity (once I can remember the gravity command again)

If people get bored of the high-flying chaos, we'll swap maps to something a little crazier. Trust me, we have some crazy maps in there somewhere...
