    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! :)

    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!
