    It has begun!
     
    Sign-ups for AsiaFortress Cup 10 are finally open! The AsiaFortress Cup is our league's primary competition, featuring 3 different divisions for teams of varying skill levels to duke it out!
     
    Division 1: For the battle-hardened veterans of the 6v6 format. Only the cream of the crop will be accepted here!
    Division 2: The intermediate skill level for already experienced teams to prove their mettle.
    Division 3: An open division for newcomers to challenge each other and see where they stand.
     
    The tournament will be played in a two-stage format: Round Robin followed by a Double Elimination.
     
    For the Round Robin stage, every team will play against each other once. After this is done, the top 4 teams of each division will proceed to the Double Elimination stage. Each of these teams will be eliminated after 2 losses, to decide who gets first, second and third place.
     
    The rules have changed significantly since AsiaFortress Cup 9 especially with regards to POV demos, so make sure you familiarize yourselves with them here before participating!
     
    Enough said! Are you hungry for a challenge and to prove yourself in the Asian TF2 scene? Then get a team of at least 6, and sign up here by 16th July!

    Classes 101: FAQ and What To Do

     

    So you've signed up for Classes 101, and you're not sure what to do? Don't worry! Check to see if your question is answered below, and if you're still unsure about anything feel free to ask either erio or Caldoran!

     

    What should I do beforehand?

    You should install and set up Mumble! Not sure how? Check this guide!

     

    What time should I show up?

    You should be in Mumble by 7:30 PM GMT+8 on Saturday11th June! While we are unlikely to reject latecomers, the mentors will not be covering topics already gone through, so try to be on time.

     

    What's going to happen?

    Depending on the turnout on the day, you will be assigned to different "Classrooms" in the Mumble server. In each "Classroom", there will be a mentor.

     

    These experienced mentors will be conducting lessons on how to play the Demoman class, covering things such as rollouts, positioning, game mechanics and more.

     

    At the end of the lesson, you will get the chance to ask the mentors any questions you may have regarding the Demoman class in competitive. Don't be shy! Everyone was new at one point, and it won't hurt to clarify anything you're unsure of.

     

    Due to the high number of people expected to turn up, there will be a large number of questions that the mentors will have to answer, so do wait for your turn! We recommend that you take down your questions somewhere so you do not forget!

     

    After this FAQ session, there will be a short mix scrim session for you to play in a real competitive game. Your mentors will be observing the games, and will give pointers either during or after the game. After that, you may again ask any questions you have to the mentors.

     

    Please understand that while we will try our best to give everyone a chance to play, you may not have the chance to due to an uneven amount of players. Don't be discouraged if you don't get to play - You can learn a lot from watching the games as well!

     

    What happens after everything is over?

    Feel free to add your mentors and ask them anything else you're unsure of! If you made any friends and liked playing with any of your fellow mentees/classmates, feel free to add them as well!

     

    And if you're still hungry to learn more about competitive TF2, why not sign up for next week's classes as well? :)

     

    I'm still unsure about something!

    Well, feel free to add either erio or Caldoran on Steam for any unresolved questions you may have!

    Announcing AsiaFortress Academy: Classes 101!
     
    Are you new to competitive TF2? Interested in joining the ranks of battle-hardened veterans you've seen in online casts, frag-movies and even local pickup games? Well, then we've got the perfect event for you!
     
    We've gathered together a bunch of mentors to guide you in various aspects of competitive play, such as class roles, inter-player co-ordination, and positioning. Our mentors will also provide answers to more technical questions, such as sensitivity, graphics and connection settings. There will be one mentor per session focusing on one class per week and the session will start off with the mentors explaining the basics followed by a short Q&A session. 
     
    After going through various topics, there will be a mix scrim (organized match) at the end of every session. These scrims will feature evenly balanced teams, and will be well suited to your skill level.
     
    These sessions are also well-suited for players who have formed new teams and are in need of help for their roles and how to communicate or work well with teammates.
     
    You are encouraged to keep in touch with your mentor after sessions if you need more help in getting to know your class. You can, by all means, join a pick-up game (PUG) if you are comfortable. You are also welcome to sign up the other class sessions as well.
     
    Mentors are as follows:
     
    Demoman - iridescentFUZZ
    Medic - Sad Katz

    Scout - Starvox

    Soldier - R dot
     
    You will be invited to join a Steam group after signing up. There, you are welcome to share/post demos of your gameplay as any class and ask for help to review them. You are welcome to also organize newbie mixes during your own time, but we do encourage you to play normal PUGs (pickup games) instead!
     
    You can sign up for the first session here, which will focus on the Demoman class!
