We have for you today, not one, not two, but THREE announcements! OOOOOOH. THREE..., that’s like, already longer that Spammah’s you-know-what.
To start off with, we have the fabulous Caldoran joining us,
as we head our future Highlander operations. He’s going to be a great addition to the AsiaFortress Team!
Secondly, as all of you seem to have been listening to a certain Scorpions song, we’ve got a big change for you. We are removing ALL off-class rules from all 6v6 servers.
This includes the team-mate rule as it is prone to abuse and is as arbitrary as the other two.
As our admins will have a lot more free time on their hands with this move, we will be focusing our efforts on players with bad attitudes.
Happy creativity-induced off-classing! Remember, do what is ‘logical’ and in ‘good spirit’!
Anyways, the rest of this article is devoted to our AsiaFortress MASHED potatoes! So you wanna know which team you’re in? HA. Here’s the schedule!! All jokes aside, make sure you read everything in this article. I have little tolerance for those who choose to skim.
As many of you will remember, the tournament will be run in a Round Robin style. What that means is that every team will play each other, and you’re all going to have SORE BUTTS by the end of this! Surprisingly we have actually grown in participation. Thanks to SPAMMAH and those BEAUTIFUL, HANDSOME DEVILS over at Valve who have featured us on the teamfortress.com website! Thanks! Apologies to those who aren’t in Asia, but who wanted to participate! We didn’t expect such the much-appreciated attention. Next time perhaps!
Here is the schedule for all the matches to be played on Saturday & other related info:
Before we move on, PAY ATTENTION! Here is a list of things that you must must must remember!
Remember the game starts at approximately 1:30 PM, and matches after that will have very strict timings so we don’t go on for too long. So check in at around 1:10, or 12:00 PM and make sure there’s ample time to deal with issues that may arise.
Make sure you’re in the whitelist! Contact Shounic to get invited! If you're in the 'asiafortress pug' group you're fine!
There is a 10 minute break between every game, so you can go piss and all that, just make sure you don’t take too long!
Each delay will have a domino effect on subsequent games and cause everything to be delayed, so for the sake of everyone having a good time, DON’T TAKE TOO LONG! There is also a 15 minute break in the middle of the tournament so you can go walk about and have a stretch.
Please make sure to check in with us when you’re ready! Check below, if you don’t know how to check-in.
I will also have a checklist in the document linked above. This is for my convenience, so that I can quickly grab subs for no-shows at the last minute. I will also explain how to register yourself as a sub below. Nevertheless, please have the decency to show up on time. If not, you can help by getting a sub for yourself, etc.
If you haven’t signed up, but still want to play, you can come join us in the group chat and declare yourself as a standby sub.
Standby subs will be called upon when something crazy happens, like mentioned in the next paragraph.
Please refrain from messaging me when I’m playing unless it’s extremely urgent.
Like if someone has crashed or their internet died and you don’t know what to do. Otherwise, feel free to contact me if anything goes wrong, or if you need help; things must go smoothly!
For the Mentors!
You are responsible for getting your team smoothly from one server to the next!
Keep track of your players and make sure you tell your teammates when you gotta B - R - B! At the same time, teammates please try your best to make the lives of our mentors as easy as possible; they are volunteering their time to teach and have fun with you!
Make sure, somehow, that the results get posted!
Settle it before you all run off for the 10 mins break and forget it! It could be the mentor, it could be the guy everyone hates - it doesn’t matter! Even if you’re just writing it down on a piece of paper, just make sure it’s recorded and added to forums later! In an ideal world, everyone cooperates and it takes some load off me. Thanks!
