    When do we need to be online today and warming up?

    I have no real skill to speak of, so I don't need to warm up. My script is the only reason I can play TF2 without hurting myself and I keep it warm under a blanket.

    Oh, and my lag.

    Agreed, I'm gonna have to kick it into overdrive next time :S

    Also, moving in a group would be a good idea too.

    Well, assuming Rex is playing next time, we'll have a much better spy.

    Well, we had our first official match. I'll quote my tweet from afterwords:
    I am truly proud of The League of Extraordinary Icrontians. To put it lightly, We got owned this morning, but we had fun

    And that was the goal, to have fun. It was exciting, I got an adrenaline rush going. Had a blast. ^5 team, great job. I look forward to the next match.

    I got it also, you either got it because A: I set you as leader when I was having Steam ID issues or B: Everyone on the team got it.

    Either way there is a lightly comical story behind it that I will be sending a PM about shortly.

    That's it for us in the Highlander Challenge. In the group round we were in a group of 3, played each other team once. Simply Impenetrable Defense beat both us and The Ball Blasters and we tied against The Ball Blasters. That puts SID at 4 points and BB and LoEI at 1 point each (Win=2, Loss=-1, Tie=1). SID will be moving on to the round of 256 where they will play in an elimination tree until there is only one team standing.

    We could work out scrimmages against other teams if we have enough interest on the team to continue playing Highlander.

    Also in need of public mention:

    Of the 13 players on our team, Jpparker88 was the only one that didn't play in either game. Planned backup for game one and he went to Disney Land yesterday. In this instance, lynching is acceptable.

    Carry on,

    LOL Josh, He's a coworker of mine. He's been on the team the whole time. I actually played the game yesterday on his rig (due to my vid card fail). He was there in spirit, like a cheerleader.

    The 2nd match page has been corrected to show our tie. http://etf2l.org/matches/21673/ (Foxy K's steam ID is not being recognized, I shot him off a PM to work on that, if anyone has contact with him please bring this to his attn, I fear his participation metal is at stake)

    I was wrong on the way they score the matches. Each map gives you points. So SID will have 8 points (2 x 4 wins), LoEI and BB will both have -1 (-1 x3 losses + 2 x1 win). Ether way SID deserves to move on. They were very well organized. I'll keep this thread updated with their progress.

    Just wanted to throw a quick update to this. I hadn't thought about for a while until a certain McKenzie mentioned it at league last night.

    Looks like they are currently 2 matches away from the round of 32 (then they will play to narrow to 16, then to 8....ect) you can follow the progress here.

    The Team that won our Group, Simply Impenetrable Defense, were penetrated a couple rounds ago. I was rootin for them.

    So once it's over we should be getting our medals.

    Also this is still true:

    And it's finally done! http://etf2l.org/matches/24655/

    Apparently you can watch the matches here if you wish.

    ^5 to all IC team members. Our medals should be here shortly. There are rumors of a major (class update sized) update dropping tonight or tomorrow. It is possible the medals will be included with that.

    Oh hey, remember this guys?

    Go here and you can verify you are eligible for a medal: http://etf2l.org/high/highlander-faq/redeem-medal/

    I don't see anything about us actually getting the medals yet :-P

    There are placeholders in the game for these medals, along with several for other tournaments. You can see them in pages 23 and 24 of the Mann Co Catalog.

    I don't think visiting the page is necessary to get your medal. Its just a nice reminder that they haven't forgotten about us.

    There is hints of a tournament coming up in a recent update for TF2;
    Definitely did not add cheats for upcoming Free-2-Play Invitational Cup.

    Understand this is a Season and not a Tourney like last time. Anyone playing must commit to 5 weeks of games and if you are serious about being more serious this time, practice.

    If it is the will of the group, I can team captain again.
