The Fox of TF2
The Team Fortress 2 Group offers a variety of events: fun ones, competitive ones, and many more everywhere in between. As our roster of Event Coordinators (ECs) grows, so will the variety of events we offer, along with the frequency of these events!
BlackMesa Sunday is, as the name suggests, held every Sunday. BlackMesa is a 5-CP map (made by one of our community members!) with a Half-Life theme. There are two versions of each map, with it alternating every Sunday.
Remember how you used to play this game in gym class? Now relive those moments, only with crockets instead of balls! Two teams compete on special maps to attempt to eliminate each other by airblasting rockets at each other.
Occasionally, we'll host this event in Discord! In this event, you take the (proverbial) stage and sing a song of your choice! This event lasts anywhere between an hour and two hours; this is one of the more popular events, so the extended length of it lets everyone have their turn at the mic!
Sometimes, an EC wants to host a random event of a random gamemode; this is certainly not frowned upon because sometimes, these impromptu events will draw a large crowd. Be it payload or KOTH, impromptu events are spur-of-the-moment callouts. Keep an eye out, you never know when an EC will want to do some random things!
Pay no attention to that bush over there…it’s just a bush. Don’t even look twice at it. Wait, did it move? Surprise! Pyros are let loose to find all of the scouts disguised as background props. They may even be hiding in plain sight…
By far the most popular event of the TF2 Group, this event is a showdown between the Leadership (managers and above) of the community and its members. An hour is given for this chaos to unfold; if a Leadership member dominates you, you are required to leave the server and rejoin (this rule is flexible and depends on attendance). This event also requires you be in Discord voice chat to attend and to have your community tags! The point of this event (besides winning) is to dominate Leadership to claim prizes. If you dominate a Leadership member, screenshot it to post on a thread to be put into a prize pool! Whichever team wins the Royal Rumble determines the next map to be played.
As the name suggests, this event is primarily Payload maps. An EC may choose to stay on one map for the entire event or call a vote to choose the next map! Generally, this event will be played with the default settings on our servers. Keep an eye out for these for some good ol' fashioned Payload!
'Rat Maps' are unique maps that are large-scaled; players are tiny compared to map props, be it a shower in a bathroom with a shower head being in the skybox or a table being a huge obstacle to play around. These map tend to be wacky and fun to mess around in! Most are built to be control point oriented. These events tend to be casual and fun, so keep an eye out for them for a loose and silly event.
