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!
