That's all from me, hope you all had fun!
It’s time for that thing again! Let’s get to the teams.

1. Join the AsiaFortress PUG Group Chat and let us know you’re ready to start BEFORE 3 pm. 2. Join your respective team mumble channels and help gather subs if necessary.
3. Get ready and join up in the appropriate server at least 2 minutes before the game is supposed to start so we can start in a timely manner!
Anybody on the team is allowed to play any class, it is up to you to adapt and work together as a team!
1. Anyone from the team is allowed to report scores to the group chat, but there should only be one person who report scores for the team.
2. Scores should be reported in this format:
“team 4, 5 - 1”
Team number first, then score. The score on the left should be the amount of points your team scores. E.g. If I played against Team 4, I would type “team 6, 1 - 5”.

WHAT’S THAT? YOU WANT MORE POTATOES? I THOUGHT YOU'D NEVER ASK…
Presenting: The AsiaFortress Academy Mashed Potatoes #2!
Nobody can say no to Solanum Tuberosum, even Bruce Lee agrees!
For those who weren't around for the first mash, this is a 6v6 event we host where we pit you all against each other in random teams. “wow that sounds incredibly boring!” - said nobody. But if you’re nobody, then get this: we're also mixing in the most professional of professional gamers our community has to offer into the fray.
Each team will have two experienced players along with four other newer players to balance it out. Our experienced players have to lead their team to victory and glory! (a.k.a. give me free tf2 items). Before I forget, we should honor the previous mash winners led by RUFUS, here’s a picture of him in real life:
Erectin' a dispenser.....
Now on a more serious note, this event is made for you newer players to learn. If your mentors have reported significant stress and annoyance towards you, you will be considered for being banned from the next mash event. Obviously we will investigate the cases being reported to us, and we hope that we don’t have to ban anyone. But the point is that this is a learning experience, not a time for you to troll.
Listen to your mentors and try your best! We can see the difference between someone who don’t want to listen and someone who is really trying their best to take in the feedback. They have taken the time out of their busy lives to help you play better, that’s something you all should respect. This is all for the purpose of ensuring that the experience is fun and enjoyable for both the mentors and the players.
Regarding Mercenaries, consult the admins in charge of the event to confirm whether or not your mercenary is okay to use. In general, the mercenary should be of the same skill level as the person who is being replaced. If such a requirement absolutely cannot be met, then a higher-level sub is tolerable. All mercenaries must be approved by an admin first.
Having said that, the event takes place this Saturday and Sunday, the 21st and 22nd of June. A schedule is available here with more information.
There will be 15 minutes breaks and we are conservatively expecting 8 teams. If there is more, we have set-up Sunday Afternoon as a buffer so that we don't get overloaded on one day. Schedule may vary to space out the games more and utilize both days depending on how accurate our guess is.
If you do not show up or arrive [way too] late, you WILL be heavily penalized. If you're not sure if you can play or not, please do not waste our time.
Registration will be closed on Thursday Night the 19th of June.
