ESEA TF2 Open ? KritzKast?s Preseason (S23)

KritzKast | 1550723516

Hello all! My name is Heather, and my alias is feathers. I play Medic for the newly-sponsored KritzKast ESEA 6s team. I’ve been asked by Agro to write about my experiences playing in ESEA in an Open-division team. My awfully secret and diabolically evil agenda for these posts is to help you get into some form of competitive, or at least arouse your curiosity. Preseason has gone very, very well con…

KritzKast #390: FreddieTF2, secretly handsome

KritzKast | 1550723516

What to do when you finally get invited to the party but find everyone has buggered off to PAX West? Find the one guy who’s still around and demand that he podcast with you, of course! It just so happens that I lucked out on that one and managed to snag FreddieTF2 – possibly because he was too short to ride on the plane. Though we will never really know. […]

KritzKast #389: Rydercycle meets his match

KritzKast | 1550723516

You know when you have a podcast and you invite someone on and they are awesome and accept and you tell you you’ll start early for them and then you fall asleep right before you start and then you’re late and you don’t get so much time with them? Just me huh. So we had Rydercycle on (for the start of) the show together with Benjamoose, who up till now […]

Remember these? That's right, it's time for the next installment of our monthly* showcase map inductions! I'm very impressed by how many quality maps have been produced in such a short definitely-30-days span. So many maps that I've probably lost track of a few! Let's cut the intro short and jump in, because we've got a lot of ground to cover....

AsiaFortress Cup 10: Division 3 Roundup



Writeup by cac, Veron, laggerung and sh4dlr, Banner by Cell

 

The 10th rendition of the AsiaFortress Cup brings a record-breaking 16 teams in Division 3; an amount unprecedented in AsiaFortress history. The home of dank twitch memes and mind-bogglingly preposterous plays, Division 3 is certainly a joy to watch.

 

Despite that, the skill gap in Division 3 is h…

KritzKast | 1550723516

Before we go any further I want to give a big shout out to our new 6s ESEA team. Watch out for a blog post on this and where you can follow them. Best to mention that we still don’t have Uberchain’s intro music sorted yet. In our defence it’s been less than 3 years since she joined us; what do you guys want, efficiency?

However, the cost for a fresh wave of n…

"Broken" Downloads

TF2 Maps | 1550723516

Hey guys! Sorry for the downtime. We're experiencing a bit of a blackhole 2.0 situation, so you'll have to bear with us as we try to figure things out.

Long story short: When one staff member tried to organize some the 72HR Jam downloads into their own subforum, an outdated plugin decided that it would take ALL of the downloads on the entire site and remove their metadata. In other words, none of…

AFC 10: Division 2 Roundup

This season of AsiaFortress, Division 1 is tiny and Division 3 is engorged. So where do you go to watch or follow games? Division 2 of course! Division 2 is perfectly sized this season, with eight teams ready to take each other on, and find out which of them is the best of Asia (relatively speaking, since it…

KritzKast #385: Hiding viewmodels in Summer Jam

KritzKast | 1550723516

Over the course of this weekend we recorded this episode of KritzKast, edited and released it. While this is not in the least bit unusual, we did have a little bit more incentive to get it done. As LeSwordfish pointed out. Content created within this period may qualify us for entry into the TF2maps.net Summer 2016 72hr TF2Jam. And who doesn’t like Jam?
