    Oh I want you, but that's besides the point.

    For the team, it's all in fun. I want people that want to play to have fun.

    [edit] This requires a team of 12-15 people. If anyone that is in has other peeps that are not IC that may be interested, let us know as will will probably need them.

    Each match 9 players will play, one of each class ( =Highlander ). The extra 3-6 players are subs/alts.

    Added more info to OP.

    We've also got LOEI on Wed to practice / recruit.

    I just created an account on etf2l.org (which everyone will need to do eventually). You need to add your SteamID to the account, which you can get by joining any server and typing status into the console.

    I'll play anything but Medic. And even then, I'd play medic if no one else will. I prefer Spy and Sniper and Heavy but how good I am at any of them is debatable.

    Paging Rex and Candle. Need implied interest. Those of you with contact, please send them to this thread.

    I'm sending out some PMs to everyone who has said In so far to aid in set up.
    Go Here and Register: http://etf2l.org/wp-login.php

    You will be emailed a defailt password. I suggest the first thing you do after you you sign in is set your password for easy remembering.

    Log into TF2 and join a server
    Press ~ to being up the consol (If the console window does not come up see here)
    type Status
    You will see information like this

    Highlight the number after STEAM_ It will be in the format of X:X:XXXXXXXX (For example mine is 0:0:17069763)
    Right click on it and click copy

    then go back to your ETF2L profile page, put that number in the SteamID box and save
    Also Everyone throw out ideas for Team Name, I personally think League Of Extraordinary Icrontians has a nice ring to it but we might want to go with something like {IC}Ur B0|\|3R

    Of Note:

    How do I record a demo of our games?

    All players in ETF2L competitions are required to record demos of their games. This means that we can see exactly what each player did in a game, for the purposes of checking for cheating. To record a demo, simply connect to the TF2 server that you are going to play the match on, and when you are ready to start playing the match, open the console by pressing the tilde or ` key, and type “record highlandermatch1′ in the console and press enter. A demo will then be recorded with the name highlandermatch1. You should use a different name for each match. You can use whatever names you wish for the demo. All demos should be kept for at least two weeks after the match has been played. You may be required to upload demos by an admin on the match page, so make sure to check them and check your email account regularly.

    Play with this a bit so you make sure you can do it.

    Everyone interested,

    Thank you to those who have signed up on ETF2L and sent me their user names. To those who have not, please do so at your earliest convenience.

    I would like to get as many members involved as possible on the server this Wednesday for League of Extraordinary Icrontians. Please try to hop on at 10pm EST so we can play and maybe build some strategies. I'll see if I can get an Admin to be there to help us Clan sta... end up on the same team.

    Hope to see you there!

    Bobi,
    My ETF2L username is Preacher; Rex is rexxar95.

    Having learned the VERY HARD way at EPIC 2010, playing organized TF2 requires extensive coordinatio among the group. First Question is...who were the first 9 to respond or do we go with who plays on IC the most?!?!?! I would expect that list to be the primary group.

    However, I would vote for the following primary class layout based on what I know, as in, who owned me and the server when I was playing:

    1. Digi - Engi
    2. Cola - Sniper
    3. _K - Soldier
    4. Beartato - Demo
    5. Canti - Scout
    6. Preacher - Medic
    7. Rexxar - Spy
    8. CannonFodder - Heavy
    9. Portzebie - Pyro
    Backups
    10. Foxy K - ? (Spy / Sniper / Heavy)
    11. Shwaip - Pyro
    12. Koreish - Spy

    As for team name and tag, I concur with the League Of Extraordinary Icrontians and {IC} before our names. Why mess with success?!

    Cuz you f****d with the wrong thread! :mouldy: You half way volunteered yourself. We will again have to assume by this new post that you do not want to play?

    Preach, Thank you for the help. I have been sending out PMs to everyone and recruiting on FB and IRC (soon to Tweet) to make sure anyone that may be interested but doesn't come to the forum very often has a chance to get in. Without Koreish we have room for 3 more peeps to step up and be awesome with us.

    I like that list but I want everyone to understand that we are doing this for fun. I'm going to do my best (as I hope everyone will) but as long as we have fun, I don't mind losing. I want everyone on the team to have a chance to play... earn their Participation Medal. Keeping this train of thought I believe that Foxy K (as he stepped up first) should be our first game Spy and Rex would then step in on the second game. Same sitch with Shwaip and Zebie.

    Per the rules, once we register we will be put into a group of 5 teams and our first round will be playing the other 4 teams in our group. I hope it works out that everyone is able to play in at least 2 games.

    I would like everyone to check into this thread (even a comment "Hey, I'm still in, I understand everything you have stated") at least once every couple of days to keep a line of communication for the team. I need to know that each and every one of you understand what we are expected of on Game Day (ie: you know how to record a demo and email it if needed) All official info will be sent via PMs, you might want to make sure you have email notifications turned on to make sure you are kept in the loop.

    One more Tiny thing: I mentioned this to Canti in IRC yesterday so I figure I'll tell everyone, For being on the team I have a little something for each of you. I'll be asking you to PM me your shipping address so I can send that out once the tourney is over.

    :rockon:Rock On Everyone. I hope to see you all tomorrow for LOEI.

    GAME1 is Sept 12th, Put it on your calendar, add it to your phone, create a reminder, tattoo it to your hand.

    Bobby (and Foxy K),
    My apologies. Foxy K did beat Rex to volunteer so it is only fair that he would be first. I thought I had reserved a spot, but I was unclear and Rex took a while to confirm it. As for Shwaip and Koreish, they seemed less than sure which is why I went with the other names. Whatever is cool...I agree that we are in for style points and fun.

    Few Things:

    1. I'll be honest when I first posted this I did not expect to get the response it has. I am so Freakin' Excited about this you have no idea. I honestly deeply appreciate each and every one of you joining the team. As Preacher mentioned organizing these sort of things is not easy so please forgive me if I give you too much info. I am trying to keep the PM's to a minimum, I'm trying hard not to get annoying.

    2. I'm a bit worried about http://etf2l.org/highlander/ and http://etf2l.org in general giving "502:Bad Gateway" errors. Been this way for the last 48 hours at least. I can't memorize the rules if I can't get to them!

    What I was going on there to look up is their walkthrough of Demo Recording. Turns out Tf2.com has quite a good one in their wiki: http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Help:Recording_demos
    This procedure will create a short demo on a private server.

    1. Start Team Fortress 2.
    2. In options, ensure that the developer console is enabled.
    * On the main menu, choose Options.
    * On the Keyboard tab, click Advanced.
    * Place a checkmark in Enable developer console.
    3. Create a server
    * On the main menu, click Create Server.
    * On the Server tab, choose any desired map such as ctf_2fort.
    * On the Game tab, set the Server password to prevent other players from joining during this test.
    * Click Start.
    4. Once the map loads, recording may begin.
    * Choose a team and character class as normal, such as a Blu Scout.
    * After spawning, open the developer console. The default key is ~ (tilde).
    * On the console's command line, enter record demotest. This will record the demo to a file called demotest.dem.
    * The game is now recording.
    o Close the console.
    o Walk outside of your spawn area and jump and move about.
    o Use a taunt. While taunting, look at the character from different perspectives.
    o If the character is a Soldier or Demoman, use explosives to suicide.
    5. After recording for a suitable period of time, stop recording.
    * Open the console.
    * On the command line, enter stop. Note: disconnecting from a game while recording a demo will also stop recording.
    * The console will return the total time and frames recorded.
    This is great practice, once we are on the server for our matches you will just start at #4 until the end of the match. Tomorrow night at LOEI will be a great time to practice this if you are not familiar with the procedure. Again each and every one of us who plays in the matches will be required to create a demo. This is so if needed, the admins can check for cheating.

    3: What do you guys think of creating a Steam group for us to keep in touch through Steam? If you are not already a member of Icrontic's steam group, make that happen by messaging Primesuspect on IC or on Steam for an invite, tell him Digi sent ya.

    Just a quick update:

    Our friend Shwaip had to bow out gracefully. He's still awesome, no lynching ok guys?

    So our current first game (September 12th) lineup is this:
    1. Digi - Engi
    2. Cola - Sniper
    3. _K - Soldier
    4. Beartato - Demo
    5. Canti - Scout
    6. Preacher - Medic
    7. Foxy K - Spy
    8. CannonFodder - Heavy
    9. Portzebie - Pyro

    Backups
    10. Rexxar
    11. Pacifisto

    If you are available this Sunday at Game Time (11AM-12:30PM Los Angeles Time PDT = 2PM-3:30PM Detroit Time EST) Please hop on the IC server. I'm going to try to be there, but can not guarantee. I would like you guys to play in small groups if possible to get used to playing with each other. For example we should feel out how Preach plays Medic and how everyone else likes their Ãœber popped. If you can't make it, not a big deal, have a great day anyways, maybe we will see you on next Wednesday?

    IMPORTANT: If you have not already registered for a ETF2L account and tied it to your steam account, please do so ASAP. I will be registering our team next week and will need that done. Thanks!

    Finally any further thoughts on a team name? We going with LOEI?
