Headlines / [MiT] GOES GOLFING (WITH FRIEN...
Last post by ScooterYDKJ - January 30, 2019, 10:49:59 PM



It's been over six months since we last went golfing for an event, so for this week, I thought we might run it again.

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 / 2FORT PARTY!
Last post by ScooterYDKJ - January 16, 2019, 10:30:32 PM




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!

Welcome to 2019! Had a hard time coming up with a good idea for a map, so I kinda thought just a simple Turbine night to kick off the year with some fun.

So, come join us for Turbine fun!

I'd have gotten those fancy new Winter 2018 keys, but the Mann Co. Store was being dumb at the time, but next time...

With winter fast approaching, it's time to dust off some of our snowy maps for the last two events of the year. And when it comes to snow, you can't go wrong with the classic King of the Hill map: Viaduct!

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

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.

"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!

Headlines / HARVEST PARTY!
Last post by ScooterYDKJ - November 28, 2018, 10:59:50 PM




Did everyone have a good holiday weekend? (I hope so.)

Anyway, I thought for our next event, we'd have one last dose of the Harvest season with TF2's own Harvest! Something simple to ease us back into the schedule.

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