My Goodbye

Aug 28 2015 01:06 AM | Shounic in News

Hello nerds. so i'm leaving for Canada and it means I can't be as involved with the community. I will still be an Admin but Caldoran will be taking on the stuff I used to do from now on. I'll also take this moment to officially recognize the other helpers who are now official Admins too - Andrew, Vetia, and Himari. 


Regardless, remember what we're all here for: to have fun playing TF2 with each other, so don't lose sight of that  :D

[AFC9] Division 3 Playoffs!

Jul 23 2015 07:25 PM | Shounic in News


As indicated in the previous post, three Division 3 teams have been disqualified due to continued ignorance of rules and warnings even when given excessive leniency. But moving on, what an exciting time for Division 3 teams!

You've entered your first season of AsiaFortress Cup,

and it just so happens that the rest of your division have decided to grant you a free ticket to the playoffs! What a time to be alive. Screw the Gun Mettle ticket, this is where the real money is made!

So what happens now?

The match between Backcappers and Beyond Velocity can still be played this Saturday as it can affect Playoff seedings. However, if both teams agree to immediately proceed with Playoffs instead, seeding will take the current standings as is.

But Sir Shounio what does the Playoffs mean?

The Playoffs follow the Round Robin Group Stages because it takes the top 4 from the previous phase and pits them against each other to find who slots into the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placings.

Playoff matches are also different because teams are actually allowed to pick what maps to play! and you called this a dictatorship... That means you'll never have to play Logjam ever again!

One more thing to note is that the Playoffs DO NOT permit Mercenaries. Whether the Regular Season match this Saturday is played or not, Division 3 Playoffs will start NEXT WEEK 27th of July, so if you wish to add more players or substitutes to your team, the rest of this week is your only chance.

Also since they're Playoff Matches, please try not to play at the same time as each other so we can actually cast them.

That's it! Good Luck to you aspiring young nerds in Division 3 - and may the demos upload smoothly!

[AFC9] Division 1 Player Ban

Jul 05 2015 10:22 PM | Shounic in News


As many have noticed, this season of AsiaFortress Cup 9 matches have been posted to Saloon.tf even without the presence of casting. The relationship between AsiaFortress and Saloon is taken seriously, and as such we have to take action when someone violates Saloon.tf's rules and regulations. 
On July 5th, the Round 2 Match between Cute Beast and Bali 9 was played on 8pm GMT+8. The Saloon.tf records indicated that the team leader of Bali 9 had bet in favor of Cute Beasts' victory and thus in violation of AsiaFortress' warnings to team leaders in division 1 in regards to betting on Saloon.tf and Saloon.tf's own rules.
For this infraction, player Gooch is banned from the current tournament (AFC9) until playoffs which means that he is not allowed to participate in any league matches in the group stages. Further investigation indicated that Gooch was the only player who partook in this activity, as a result team Bali 9 will be allowed to finish the AFC9 Season and allowed to add players to their roster if they wish to do so.
I would remind any Division 1 players to not bet on AsiaFortress Saloon.tf matches to avoid bans from the league.

PSA: Current Status

Apr 28 2015 05:54 PM | Shounic in News

Hello community!


It's been a long ride and despite our efforts there's some things that need to be said, so let's get to it.


AsiaFortress will shut down if our servers are not being utilized anymore. We have started a new group for active players who wish to play here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/asiafortresspickupgames Our closing will include the league and anything associated with it.


This decision has been in discussions for a while and it's come to a point where there is nothing left to say. Servers cost money to host, and if nobody uses it, then that's that.


Our stance is always with the community - if people want us around and use the servers we'll keep going, so vote with your actions. Numbers speak more than words and it's up to you now; to show us what the fate of AsiaFortress will be.


Just think about who you're going to be - the one that stands aside, types f and watches? or are you the type who'll actually get something done?

irresponsibly handle your online currency!

Hello! (especially those with money)
Have you ever felt that your money shouldn't be used productively? Ever felt like throwing money into the sea? Then have I got the deal for you. 
On a serious note, hope you all enjoy the little gambling fun to be had, and maybe more will come?

Mercenaries Cup 6 kicks off! (with foot!)

Mar 03 2015 12:24 AM | Shounic in News


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!
