I get so side tracked with LFS that I forget I put myself down for the other events and need to read them :) Looking forward to the TF2 action. I sucked hard last time as I was out of my 2Fort comfort zone, will have to practice up this time!

Practice! So much practice

I'm going to get a sports bottle, a sweat band and play everything night for 6 hours.

So much fun last year, hopefully we can get the fraps working this time around.

Very exciting so many more people then last year signed up for TF2 already!

Well with our "issues" we had with our TF2 servers I lost all my GONlympics configs from the servers and had to rebuild them so I am testing them out atm. What I have done so far is set up one server (and will add more) that while it currently isn't in tournament mode it is set to Highlander mode so at least people will have the feel of it for the time being.

games.on.net GONlympics Server 01 - 59.167.241.107:27015

It may still list by it's current name [games.on.net #09 [EC] Koth + Mapvote] but that should change soon, hopefully

Yeah I've got a bit more of a heads up and more access so Source TV will be setup for it and recording all views of the event for each server this time. :D


Edit: Should be no adverts on it either though let me know if they show.

Haven't had a chance to play in a long time. Going to go into this with hopefully 1 hour warm-up beforehand at least.
I GOT DIS!

I'm thinking of assigning captains. Last year one team got rolled as they had all inexperienced players on their side.
Or maybe have randomly assign the experienced players teams and then the newer guys.

I think, the easiest option would be to split it into a experienced and newcommer bracket based on playtime hours, randomize each one half/half then stick them together. Kinda hard to explain...


other news, I'd love to do a casting for it, only trouble is I'd have to record it, voice it, upload it....and I've never done it before nor know if my voice is good. :<

Year, go for it! I was trying to hunt down people to do this last year (like what lucassot did with live for speed) but couldn't find anyone to do it.

I'm sorry! I am terrible with dates and going to have to pull out.

That's the weekend I'm moving out and will probably lack a proper set up for gaming fun. Plus I am booked for recording a podcast right in the middle of the tournament and while I am a master of multitasking, I think that would be pushing my skills.
