Introducing Season Three of the League of Extraordinary Icrontians

Introducing Season Three of the League of Extraordinary Icrontians

League of Extraordinary Icrontians season threeThe League of Extraordinary Icrontians is a scheduled, weekly TF2 game that brings in Icrontians young and old, new and grizzled, to our awesome Team Fortress 2 server for lulz, competition, smack talk, badges, and Good Times™

2013 represents our third year of League play. You don’t have to do anything to join the League other than to show up.

The server holds 24 slots and tends to fill up fast on League nights. “Make room for me” kick privileges are reserved for those who have contributed money to the server (i.e. those who hold the coveted Team Captain badge). If you don’t have the badge and the server is full, even if you have the {IC} tag you may get kicked to make room. No offense! The server costs a lot of money to run and many people have donated to keep it free for everybody.

Those who participated in Season Two can now request the badge for it.

Like we did last year, we’ll have an informal unofficial game tonight to brush the dust off and grease the wheels a bit. The official League games this season will be on Tuesday nights at 10pm EST. That puts the first official game this Tuesday, January 8th, at 10pm EST.

See you there!

    Tim I had a really good game of Halo 4 the other day in Big Team Battle. I went 22-0 in kills/deaths!

    I started off with a sniper rifle, and carefully picked a spot up high near my base. I got some nice headshots until I ran out of bullets, then I went and jumped in a tank and killed a bunch more people, then when the tank caught on fire I bailed out before it blew up, picked up a gravity hammer, and smashed 4-5 more people! Then I hid in their base to hit anyone who came by until the game ended.

    I came in #1 on my team, which doesn't happen often.

    True story.

    primesuspect FAIR WARNING: keep in mind that the server has only 24 slots, and that probably every {IC} player will want in tonight. We will definitely have more people that want/deserve to play than we will have slots. If you get no response to "please kick to make room", IT'S NOTHING PERSONAL. If all 24 slots are filled with 24 donating, active members, there's nothing we can do about it. Please just keep auto-join on and your turn will come! <3

    oni_dels so i've been stuck on the "validating steam cache file" window for the past 20 mins, and since i wasn't gonna be online for long i guess i wont be able to show up tonight. sucks. balls. deeply.

  82. primesuspect
    primesuspect Vaguely. It's mostly American.
  83. Ilriyas
    Ilriyas It started in Mexico, now it's been absorbed by the various fast food empires.
  84. bright
    bright Fast food empires should absorb Tim Hortons. Seriously don't believe Timmies is fast-food, because it looked nice, tasted great, and I'm still breathing normally.
  85. Ilriyas
    Ilriyas Tim Hortons is fast food as far as I suppose you could say Canadian born and raised 'fast food' companies are.

    Harvey's for example is labelled as a fast food restaurant but it's pretty much make your own burger, the patties aren't precooked, reheated, etc. they're made as you place your order, it takes longer but you're getting quality food.

    Tim Hortons is sort of similar, coffee is thrown out if it's been sitting for around 15 minutes I believe and a fresh pot is made (This is corporate policy and as far as I'm concerned it's held true by the franchise owners) bagels and shite are already there but it's made as you ask for it and condiments like lettuce, tomato, etc. are prepared fresh.

    Now if only they were open right now, I've got a craving only Tim Horton's coffee and a bacon breakfast bagel can fix. (Bloody rural town, back in Toronto they're open 24/7)

    Also we're slowly making progress into the States soon enough everyone will be craving Timmies Timbits
  86. JBoogaloo
    JBoogaloo I gotta say, when we were in Montreal last year the wife and I tried some Time Hortons coffee and she had some grilled sandwich. That place is pretty damn good compared to what we'd get anywhere else here in the states as far as convenience food goes. My only fear is that I won't be able to decide who gets my money for coffee any more, Dunkin Donuts or Timmies?
  87. CB
    CB We've got Tim Horton's in Southern Ohio now. Betsy likes their coffee. I think their coffee tastes like coffee, which is to say: terrible.

    The burrito's that most American's are eating were invented in Arizona. Order a Burrito at an authentic Mexican restaurant, and you might be disappointed.

    The most surprising thing to order at a Mexican Restaraunt, if you're used to 'fast' Mexican (Taco Bell) is a Chalupa. A Taco Bell chalupa is basically a taco with a deep fried puffy tortilla for a shell. A real chalupa is basically a corn cracker with bean-paste and lettuce atop.

    Remember that time we went to the Mexican Restaurant and you ordered a Chalupa and when they brought it out you thought they brought out the wrong thing, because it wasn't like Taco Bell?
