Reverted the recent stickybomb damage ramp up change. We will continue to evaluate the use of stickybomb air detonations and potential changes to that mechanic.

In what will be the last article of this kind because TF2 is now dead I’m taking a quick look at the immediate impact of the new sticky damage ramp up effect on the EU TF2 rules set. It’s only been a few days but there are some trends appearing on the pickup site logs. The data runs from the 18th to today (20th) from the tf2pickup site logs. This makes a good representation of the great unwashed proletariat TF2 competitive scene that applies to the most players, as opposed to the Olympian heights of the Premiership mix.
infamously long post-i49 article I wrote. Before Highlander-lovers inadvertently engage in an abundant serving copious enough to appease their appetites until the HL Nations Cup, for reference purposes, I wrote a marginally controversial article three months ago (which I would shamelessly implore you to read alongside an article that I was prohibited to publish on ETF2L regarding the start of the season, merely for the purposes of recap), regarding affairs in certain Premiership teams. In it was a graph visualising predictions for Season 6. I caught up with each of the team leaders about how their teams are faring post-season and their plans (if any) for Season 7.In what was originally meant to be an article promoting the Highlander Season 6 Awards Show on Sunday, it became evident, unfortunately, when I broke 3000 words that it was unsuitable as a general news post and was destined to be its own singular entity. Fortunately however, it has allowed me more time to write an article which managed to outdo the
Former EU superteam Epsilon eSports continues to change its lineup. ‘Kicked’ today, Raymon. Joined today WARHURYEAH.
So did WARHURYEAH jump ship for a chance to win an ETFL2L season? Once i52 comes around he’s going to be replaced with numlocked anyway, no? Your thoughts below…
Friend of the site, Mr. X hacked steam chat to get us the logs of Raymon getting his pink slip:
21:23 – Epsilon KnOxXx: hey raymon
21:23 – Epsilon KnOxXx: i’m so sorry man
21:23 – Epsilon KnOxXx: talking with mike atm

21:24 – Epsilon KnOxXx: if you wanna finish the season np
21:31 – Raymon: nah, i think it’s the end of the line for me
21:32 – Raymon: it might be more optimal for you guys anyway, more practice for mike back on soldier, you med, etc
21:32 – Raymon: can just get pockets until seb is back
21:32 – Raymon: could you remove me from etf2l?
21:33 – Epsilon KnOxXx: i don’t wanna remove you on etf2L

21:36 – Epsilon KnOxXx: sorry :/
21:37 – Raymon: it’s cool
With the amount of team members they’ve acquired so far, you’d expect them to play highlander at i52.
Just when the world needed a hero, newly crowned benevolent dictator Hildreth stepped forward to save us from a Highlander world dominated by tyrannical overlord in waiting (and compiler of maimed log files) Bulow. Before we begin this season’s statistical Highlander review let’s pause for a moment to reflect and collectively thank Hildreth for holding back the tide.
In this review I promise to do a better job of examining the Heavy class contribution, revealing which of the myriad new spies came closest to knocking Inso off his perch, and once again shit-talk all Pyros in comparison to Steve by default (apologies to other Pyros in advance).
After the Highlander auto-log detection debacle I can assure concerned readers each log included has been hand-picked with the utmost care. I’ve messed about with the rating player ordering I use as well, but this isn’t really the place to explain it.
So let’s dive into the infinite depths of the statistical vortex and discover why all your votes were wrong.
