April 18th Lan Coverage
Tagged: 2014 Gamers Assembly


Admirable — Hi! King of Potatoes here bringing you news of a poor imitation of a preview article I put together for Gamers Assembly 2014. It goes a little something like this…

France has had an enviable LAN scene for as long as I can remember; an annual circuit of LANs no less! With seasons averaging four events and then culminating in a final event – you guessed it – at LAN. LANs up the wazoo. Bastards! Talk about your embarrassment of riches. In recent years that Gallic wealth of Team Fortress 2 action has proven too enticing for foreign invaders, hungry for nerd blood and hairy women.

Hosted at the impressive Futuroscope just outside Poitiers, nestled away in central France, Gamers Assembly represents the jewel in the crown of this nation of gamers. In 2012 a marauding Epsilon eSports pried it out of Punchline’s cold dead hands, but in 2013 it was the French who prevailed, besting the European all-star mix, Viva La Vida.

This year nine teams have entered the fray, fewer than expected I am told, but never the less cash money is on the line and it’s offline; I’m sold! The language barrier has historically impeded the amount of coverage lavished upon these events outside of France, but then again they are blessed with Pognon. Scarce details again this year, but read on and I’ll tell you what I know.

Read the full thing over on TFTV… or not.

Season 17 Grand Final Preview – TF2 by the Numbers

Gentleman Jon — Firstly let me apologise in advance for an even lower standard of article than usual but it’s a bit of a rush to fit this around real life so I’m putting it out a bit early as well. I know, if I could cancel rl entirely I would. You’ll just have to do the proof reading for me.

Anyway, it couldn’t have been closer but TLR overcame incredible resistance from AWS to make the ETF2L Season 17 grand final. Reflecting briefly on the game, AWS clearly prepared carefully for TLR and radically changed some tactics. TLR played into their hands to an extent picking one of AWS’s go-to maps in Badlands but the combination of KnOxXx and Hys’s experience was able to eventually overturn their initial disadvantage.

AWS were just seconds away from overturning their Granary jinx in spectacular fashion but ultimately their bogey map proved too much to overcome. Hys was downbeat about his performance in the match and statistically he took a hit, and during the match (particularly on Viaduct) he seemed to be the focus for AWS and Flippy. MiG will have been watching closely.

TF2 by the Numbers – Season 17 Playoffs Round 2 AWS vs TLR

April 1st News


Gentleman Jon — The first fallers of the playoff race are Dotter, edged out by a head in a closely contested tie by Awsomniac. The Frenchies had impressive performances all round with most team members buffing their season stats so far, but they’ll need to find even more in the tank going up against the KnOxXx inspired TLR in the semi-final this week.

TLR have had a chaotic season, Hys’s pre season injury resulted in the surprise recruitment and equally ruthless sacking of Gubbins, and the Mais La Moule meltdown coincided with Rising’s injury allowing them to snap up TF2 mastermind KnOxXx. Team leader Hys may reflect on the sequence of events that have led the team to apparently become even stronger as a blessing in disguise, but even so he might want to consider an alternative to the brutal limb-snapping team training regime for next season.

In a final twist this will be Kiler’s last game this season win or lose, so should they make the final the identity of their last scout will remain a mystery and of course will be subject to MIG’s sportsmanship.

But that’s for the future (if they make it), of immediate concern is how the two teams match up. During the regular season TLR won convincingly with a big margin on Granary but only narrowly on Snakewater 3-2. Despite having a talented and experienced soldier pair Awsomniac (in their various guises) have long struggled on Granary and this season was no exception also losing the map to Ayo Gurl.
