Mercenaries Cup 6 kicks off! (with foot!)

Mar 03 2015 12:24 AM | Shounic in News

AZfdU2P.png


Today marks the start of the tournament! Throw the confetti! Throw the dog! Throw the game! (maybe not, you crazy iBP enthusiast...)


Let's get straight to it. Match threads have been posted, and this year we're trying to make things better as usual. The rules have been updated, and this year we're introducing the ILLUMINATI GROUP. It's not actually the Illuminati and there's no triangles around here I swear. But because of how difficult it was to relay messages to the leaders in the past, I'm going to be inviting the leaders to the Illuminati group where we can discuss secret happenings in Russia, the US ASIAFORTRESS MC6 THINGS and update the team leaders on important happenings during the tournament.

The second thing we gotta talk about is server team tags. If you don't want us to randomly guess what your team tag is you can tell us what it should be in a reply here or an indication in the Illuminati group.

That's it! Throw the confetti again!

UPDATE: AF BACK FROM THE DEAD

Feb 17 2015 12:12 AM | Shounic in News

We're back!
 
If you have noticed, our servers are now back online! Some of you with keen eyes have spotted our servers making it's entry back into the internet tab on the server browser. At the moment, we're still setting up the address we're all used to using, 'pug.asiafortress.com', so it will point to the correct address in the future. 
 
For those who hates words, here, take this picture I illustrated of the situation we're in.

While yes, it's great the servers are back up, we can't celebrate quite yet and the servers may very well have to go offline for some time again. I know exactly what you're thinking. If it's "I want some Pancakes" I'm not sure how to help you... but if you're thinking "golly gee I sure wish I could help!" then HAVE I GOT THE SOLUTION FOR YOU!

 

Here at AF we seriously dislike the idea of asking for donations, but if you feel like you could spare some chump change to support the servers you can make a PayPal payment to shounic @ asiafortress.com (no spaces! & Add your username in the notes) At the moment we don't know how people without PayPal access can try contribute but if you have suggestions please leave us a message!

 

To assist our fundraising efforts, I'll be organizing a showmatch in the coming weeks. Let's remember why we're all here, to play and enjoy TF2, so why not do what we do best, play TF2! Give me your suggestions on what ridiculous things we can get people to participate in. Heavy MGE? Flipped Badlands? Girls vs boys?

 

And finally, Mercenaries Cup 6 Registration will end 1st of March so that people have time to gather their teams and start scrimming again.

 

Hope to see you all on the AF servers!!

PSA: What's been happening?

Feb 12 2015 09:05 AM | Shounic in News

yay cats
 
Hello friends (and family?)!
 
Today I bring you a brief PSA about what's happening over here in AF. The backroom has been busy helping out around our infrastructure upgrades which is the main reason why our servers have been down. Panic (and or picnic) not though, we're making a steady come back and everything will be as it used to be soon!
 
What this means is that MC6's start will be delayed to coincide with the timing of our return, so I hope you all can understand our decision to do this. Until then, if you have questions feel free to drop them in this thread!

AsiaFortress Cup 8 GRAND FINALS HYPEEE!

Nov 05 2014 10:50 AM | Shounic in News

jw8zzSP.png

 
What a tournament it has been! After the grand finals we will be publishing a article about the entire tournament, but screw that, we're not here for that today! We're here for the GRAND FINALS of DIVISION 1!
 
Who would have ever thought w40klife isn't in the top 4? Who would've thought MVP would have a perfect season? THESE ARE RHETORICAL QUESTIONS BUT CAN YOU FEEL THE HYPE YET?
 
SO LET'S GET TO IT. MY CAPS LOCK IS ON, AND IMAGINE I'M SCREAMING THIS INTO YOUR EAR, CAUSE GOD DAMN YOU BETTER BE HYPED FOR THIS.
 
THE TEAM THAT TOOK DOWN MVP TO GET INTO THE FINALS...
 
TEAM DEADLY MOMENTUM
 
THE ALL JAPANESE TEAM SET ON WINNING THE TOURNAMENT, BUT WHO WANTS TO HEAR IT FROM ME. I WENT ONTO STEAM, CLICKED ON NATTO'S NAME, AND ASKED HIM QUESTIONS. LET'S HEAR IT FROM THE MAN HIMSELF...
 
shounic: describe your team in one sentence!
natto: momentum, I decide my team name from playstyle i want.

shounic: who is playing in the finals, and can you give us a comment about each of them? (including yourself)
natto:
  • first, our medic hikoku: He join us for AFL and his positive talking when losing is give us power.
  • demoman firidd: He is first member dmm, and he is sometime say severe opinion [note: he means critical comments of others]. but its necessary for us.
  • pocket pnt: He is my friend from long ago, and i trust his great soldier sense. 1 of best player i have played with!
  • 1 of our scouts, ozr: He play team fortress long time (from TFC), and he is reticence [note: reserved, introverted]  but his advice from his long career is giving us knowledge.
Lastly, me: I feel honored for participation AFC final, I'll do my best, Thank you everyone for everything! But not decided who is last one, so my class in final is roam or scout.
 
shounic: What plays should we watch out for from your team?
natto: Our big aggressive pushes. Just like the name, we love strong aggression even if sometimes it's suicide as a result.

shounic: How confident are you of winning the final match in AFC8?
natto: We many time scrim with KIN Gaming, so we know very well each other. So I try to find the cause of historical lost matches. We are all around the same skill level in terms of players, (which can also be said for the other 4 teams in the playoffs), so it will all come down to our team strategies. [Note: Sentence edited for clarity] So I think very well for win cause i want win! We try as hard as we can and we grab victory!

CAPS LOCK BACK ON, LET'S SEE WHAT CREEP HAS TO SAY ABOUT KIN GAMING, THE SOUTH KOREAN TEAM!

shounic: Describe your team in one sentence:
creep: KIN. KIN means 'enjoy the game' in Korean!

shounic: who is playing in the finals, and can you give us a comment about each of them? (including yourself)
creep: babel: he is funniest guy in team, so he usually makes synergy of team. He is the best pocket soldier in Korea
forcedge: forcedge doesnt plays tf2 that much recently but he is best demo player in Korea
flower: he cant use his microphone while playing cause of his family, Though he is one of best scouts in asia imo
genos: even though he started tf2 5 months ago he is now one of best soldiers in Korea because of his passion. but unfortunately he is playing medic for team
hsk: He teached me when I start playing TF2. He is experienced and the best scout in Asia.

--- at this point of the interview, babel took over to answer the rest of the questions ---

babel: creep plays roam. hmm..... he is kind leader, he always cheers us up when we're losing or arguing for some reason.

shounic: What plays should we watch out for from your team?
babel: hmm... I think our strongest players are scouts, so they should care about flower and hsk!

shounic: How confident are you of winning the final match in AFC8?
babel: I want to say my team as 100%, but players of DMM are strongest enemy now so I cant confidence our winning but i hope so! :)

ARE YOU EXCITED YET? DO YOU FEEL THE HYPE? CAUSE ACTIVATE DAT CAPS LOCK BROTHER, THERE'S MORE!
 

WE ARE GOING TO BE LIVE! ON TEAMFORTRESS.TV!
STARTING AT 9:30 GMT + 8 // 10:30 GMT + 9

IMPORTANT: Changes in AF PUG Servers

Oct 02 2014 09:11 PM | Shounic in News

UUgDkLv.png


Greetings AsiaFortress community!

Today we will be rolling out a new experimental change to the chat system and rules in our PUG servers.

Effective from this post, all text chat will be disabled when the PUG goes live. Text chat will remain enabled during warmup, setup and post-game.

Chat will be fully enabled at all times during Scrim Mode.

Additionally, Mumble is now compulsory for PUGs. Refusal to join the designated Mumble channels may result in a kick from the PUG for someone else to take the player slot, and continual refusal may lead to escalated penalties.

If you are a new player who does not know how to use Mumble, follow this guide to install and set up Mumble.

After you have installed Mumble, you may click on these links to be automatically moved to the server and designated channels.

Server 1 (RED | BLU | SPEC)

Server 2 (RED | BLU | SPEC)

Server 3 (RED | BLU | SPEC)

Server 4 (RED | BLU | SPEC)

Server 5 (RED | BLU | SPEC)


Feedback may be provided as a reply to this thread. We will be evaluating the results of this experimental change, taking all your feedback into account. Lastly, speaking of feedback, I have posted a thread in general discussion about possible future changes to the AsiaFortress Whitelist. You can see it here

Thanks, and happy pugging!

Sep 23 2014 10:50 AM | Shounic in News

Hello again from the dictatorship Admin running AFC8! What's that? You want to hear the good news? Sure thing!
 
Here is our record of POV demos. Teams who are not responsible in submitting all the required demos WILL be completely disqualified.

PUGS: 0 demos submitted except Amphetamine and NSB (Round1 Only)
FCWH: 0 demos submitted except round 1 (cknach and oro)

 

Every team leader is responsible for the missing demos and will be penalized for lack of compliance.

 

What happens if I don't have the demos...?

 

All and every missing demo must be justified for by the team leader. Leniency granted by me is an acceptable justification.  To clarify: Team leaders must >AT LEAST< post a list or record of demos that have been added after this announcement so that I can verify it's on the server.

 

Deadline is Saturday, 27th of September. Do not resolve >ANY< issues with me through Steam chat - I will penalize you for ignoring this warning.
