imageGather round, gather round. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we've got a wonderful announcement to make:

The League of Extraordinary Icrontians is returning for a second season!

The League, if you're not familiar, is a weekly Team Fortress 2 game with Icrontians old and new, pro and noob. Every Tuesday night at 10pm EST we will gather on rad.icrontic.com and play the night away (some nights, the LOEI have played until 3am).

For the second season, we will be announcing participation badges as well as special event badges for those of you who like to buff up your Icrontic user profiles (aka achievement whores).

We'll have a casual, unofficial inaugural run tonight at 10pm EST just to get the band back together, and the first official League session will be next week, the 10th, at 10pm EST.

Welcome back everyone!

    Still in Indiana without a computer to play TF2 on, and then CES next week, but rest assured after that, I'm frigging in.

    May not be able to get on today but next week I'm totally in even if I can only grab 2 hours.

    AWESOME. I recommend we start off simple...maybe with an "I play TC TF2 in a leopard thong" evening...

    Sweet, sounds like my Tuesday nights will be booked for a while! Well, as long as you all can tolerate an Icrontian noob on the league. XD
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Yup! Noob friendly is our middle name.

    Not sure what our last name is....

    Steam has been telling me that it is Preparing to Launch TF2 for about 2 hours now. I do not know what is up (yet to troubleshoot) but I look forward to getting in some ICTF2 on a regular basis.

    The beta session was awesome. Cola, [EA] Marshmellow, and [TR]Farge were driving me nuts on the last few maps—and by driving me nuts I mean they were destroying my face over and over again (even though I led my team to victory in the last payload map, so suck it).

    We've got lots of new IC-curious people that are regularly visiting our server and adding it to their favorites. I sense some new community members will be born of this fiasco :D
  • Good times tonight. :)
  • pigflipperpigflipper The Forgotten Coast Icrontian
    ARG! Now I see why West Coast people are poorly represented in IC gaming events, damn time difference makes things...difficult.

    Hopefully I will be able to play at least a couple times a month because even though I don't enjoy the game like I used to, I do still enjoy tossing jars of pee on people.

    imageThose who participated in Season One of the LOEI, those who showed up last night for the trial run, and those who participate on the 10th are all going to receive this one-time badge:

    The Grizzled League Veteran

    For their Icrontic profiles. Once they're given out, there will never be a chance to earn it again. This is for recognition that you were there in the beginning.

    We'll be emulating the TF2 badge system: Silver and Bronze badges will eventually be given out to those who join us later on, but the Gold grizzled badge will be an exclusive mark of honor.

    In that case, there should also be a retroactive black badge for those who played with the group before it was cool. B)

    The Icrontic hipster award? :D

    Oh sweet! :D
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    I gave out the first round of 72 badges. If you didn't receive it but should have, send me a message. It wasn't intentional; hard to go back over a year and a half of history and find out the right people to give the badge to :D
  • MiracleManSMiracleManS Chambersburg, PA Icrontian
    Oh! Shiny badge!
  • ZaticusZaticus Indianapolis
    Horray! I'm going to be a badge whore. It's like pokemon right? Gotta catch em all!
  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja Mountains Icrontian

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Dallas Icrontian
    @fatcat Am I missing something? You have TF2 Beta selected, though I imagine you wanted TF2 with hours visible
  • SnarkasmSnarkasm 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands Icrontian
    His point is that he is the oldest of old school, in that he was around early enough that he downloaded, played, and even still has the beta.

    Or something. e-peen, etc.

    you had to pre-order the Orange Box to play TF2 beta if I remember correctly
  • SpencerForHireSpencerForHire Clawson, MI
    Sadly, I have the beta and have only been playing TF2 for about a year and some change? Aka you can still download the beta.

    This is true, as I also have it. I did buy the Orange Box originally, so maybe it comes with that.

    I think I'm sitting at 401 or something like that. I played a lot on a the Nemu's servers.

    493 hours is small time. ;)

    They have started using the Beta as a test bed for changes. Which is why sometimes things be crazy in thar.

    Mine is Sept. 28, 2007, I'm not taking a damn screenshot. I've played way less than almost all of you. I still use all default weapons and gear. I still have boatloads of fun when playing with the IC crew.
