Post TF2 Highlander Competition
alright, so PC powerplay is running this team fortress 2 competition between australian forums (hey, we totally count) seems to be very casual, enter at any time stuff.
Basic Format is Highlander, that is 9v9, only one player per class per team. Figure it should be a bit of fun.
So post if you're interested with class preferences.

(Initial post is below, pcpp team bookkeeping removed for brevity)

Since the dawn of time (well, sometime around November 2007) RED and BLUE have undertaken an underground battle for global domination, with 9 brave souls defending their colour, and their forum. Engineers have been backstabbed by enemy combatants, their sentry farms demolished. Soldiers have been sniped with their medic’s left defenceless in the face of soviet firepower. Scouts have been flamed and record levels of sandvich consumption have been reached within the Soviet Union. The world looked on as if to expect years of outright war between these forums, until now where these teams have come together to settle their differences once and for all, to determine which forum will reign supreme as Highlander champion of the World (well Australia). Welcome to the Highlander Aussie Forum Challenge!

I know everyone can play/will want to play as Medic, so I suppose I'll pass on that and say... um... Soldier or Pyro, I suppose?

I'm not oft available for TF2, however.

I'm in. My preferences are as follows:
1) Engineer
2) Pyro
3) Soldier
4) Heavy

I'm fairly crap at everything else, so it would be a bad idea to make me one of them.

Eh, while I suppose I could fill any spot....

My first picks would be Spy or Medic though. I can field scout or sniper if we're desperate because although I can play them okay I only like playing them once in a while, I can do decent Heavy, Soldier or Pyro although you guys seem to want those classes already.

If you are desperate and willing to put up with a player who sucks, let me know.

I already had dibs on medic.

But yeah, I'm fairly unreliable and would likely forget about scheduled matches, etc.

Possible team:

Scout - Hugo?
Soldier - Ale
Pyro - Dave
Demoman - Mark
Heavy - John
Engineer - Jimmy
Medic - Stefan
Sniper - Chris
Spy - Paul

We need a couple more people people to fill the missing spots and we would probably want subs as well.

Also, demomark.

[edit] waitaminute, Hugo what were your preferences? I'm gonna guess Medic/Pyro/Scout so I'mma stick you in as Scout for now.

Yeah, I can play Sniper very marginally. I still think you should consider getting in a few ringers. Back in the day, Nathan and I used to stomp /hard/. And James is just good. Of course it really depends whether we're doing this to win, or just have fun.

I play nothing well except medic. But I can occasionally pull of streaks of... competence with other classes. Demoman... not so much, but I could learn I guess.

got onto the guy running it, it's pretty relaxed timewise, basically sort out when people are available and get back to him with a weeks notice and he'll sort the first game out.

So, what times? I'm fine with weeknights from about 6 (except friday of course :3) and sunday afternoons/evenings, maaaaybe saturday evenings.

I played a fair bit of Demoman today and I enjoyed it (and I'm at least as bad at it as I am at Soldier), so I'd be willing to fill that slot.

I could either swap Soldier with Mark, or we could put Dave on Soldier, Mark on Pyro. (W + m1!)

Right, Ale's prodding me about this, so I guess I'll pop in. Medic, Soldier or Pyro is preferred. A Heavy is fine too.

I can do any evening that isn't monday or friday, and daytime on the weekend. Late night is bad for me.

We should get the team playing together some time, even if not for the PCPP comp.

The CS club/Streetgeek would probably also be interested in having some friendly matches.

is everyone able to do next sunday afternoon? say around 3?
also what map do we want? I'd suggest gravel pit.

playing vs streetgeek/CS club sounds like fun (also they're slightly less likely to destroy us >_>) maybe some casual 6v6 if we can't get all the highlanders at whatever time.

My preferences are for Badwater Basin and CTF Well, but really I'm fine with anything that isn't Goldrush or Junction.

And yeah, I'm fine with 3PM Sunday.

Don't like CTF much, would only play Turbine CTF if any.

Badwater is good, can't think of what else.

Time's okay also.

So, confirmed players are:

Hugo (Scout)
Ale (Demo)
Jimmy (Engie)
John (Heavy)
Dave (Pyro)
Paul (Spy)
Pichu (Medic)
Chris (Sniper)

---

So team at the moment is...

Scout - Hugo
Soldier - Mark
Pyro - Dave
Demoman - Ale
Heavy - John
Engineer - Jimmy
Medic - Pichu
Sniper - Chris
Spy - Paul

Bold is confirmed, italic is otherwise.

I reckon the best way to handle unconfirmed classes is a simple first in first served policy. If your name's there and you want it, you can grab it and it's yours. If you're not listed for it but want to play that class then you should have a word with whoever's reserved it and see if they want it.

Done!

I think I'll pester people if they haven't replied by tomorrow morning. It'd kind of suck to not be able to field a full team.

My calendar currently tells me that Sunday the 3rd should indeed be fine.

I'll keep spy for the meantime.

Clone is interested in participating, don't know what classes he wants. If we can't get Mark for then we can force Clone to Soldieran.

We've been chatting with the CS club and they're interested in a friendly match tomorrow evening, probably around 8 or so. It's not a big deal if we can't get a full 9 together, but it'd be nice to get a chance to duke it out. It's possible they may provide substitute players if we're short of the 9, also.

Dave doesn't have scissors, he's got one of those fancy guilamatine devices.
Never stops raging about it, either.
