Fmapkmn — Ladies and gentlemen, TF2 Connexion, the French TF2 community, would like to present the second edition of our TF2 Connexion Movie Contest powered by ROCCAT, our German Sponsor.


Last year entries from AMS, Saladeauthon & .Cali and Grid were the three chosen from a total of 23 participants.
This year, the TF2C Movie Contest is open for everyone (not only for European moviemakers as last year), aimed at all TF2 communities.

This is why we can count on 7 international judges :
Etats-Unis Salamancer and Etats-Unis Marxist (TeamFortressTV staff)
Portugal Kaneco (Founder of
Huhy (Moviemaker)
– The french trio France Remitche (Caster), France Kustom3 (Prem Medic) and France Twiggy (Caster)

The entries will be graded on the quality of the frags, music and the editing.

First : 150€ + ROCCAT Keyboard Ryos MK Glow
Second : 25€ + ROCCAT Gaming Mouse Kone XTD Optical
Highest placed Frenchman: 25€ + ROCCAT In-ear Headset Syva

The contest begins now and the deadline is fixed at September 30th 2014 on 23:59 CEST (UTC+2).

If you want more information, feel free to check our thread in ETF2L forum or TeamFortressTV forum.

May the airshots be with you!


Frequently Asked Questions :

When does the contest begin ?
Beginning date: Now!
Deadline: Thursday 30th September 2014 on 23:59 CEST (UTC+2).
The results will be announced in October.

What are the competition’s rules regarding content ?
The TF2 Connexion Movie Contest powered by ROCCAT is a TF2-related video contest.
One does not necessarily have to make a fragmovie. It could be a simple fragshow or a jumping movie, however, we do not accept SFM-exclusive movies, although you can still use SFM in your video.
There is a length limit : Under 10 minutes.

How do I make my video eligible for this contest ?
You must use the TF2C/ ROCCAT intro at the beginning of your video.

TF2 Connexion Download link
Mediafire Download link
MEGA Download link

You can edit the intro (music, background) but you need to keep the animation and the visibility of these two logos.
The title of your video on Youtube must include the mention “#TF2Connexion Contest”.
The video submission needs to be in the TF2C thread (french), ETF2L thread (european and others) or TFTV thread (american).

I’m new in editing and I don’t have any contacts to make a democall ?
Last year’s competition saw some beginners have problems with acquiring frags in order to make movies. We have come up with a way to fix that!
Thanks to Beater we now have a demopack from the ESEA Season 16 LAN (link).
Our French winner, Saladeauthon has offered his demopack as well (link).
Of course, it’s not necessary to use these demos but it surely can help some of you to make fragmovies.

Can I do multiple entries ?
You have only one entry for this contest. However, two or more moviemakers can work in one entry.

How will judges evaluate the entries ?
Each of our 7 judges will attempt to grade the movie according to: editing, frag quality, and personal impressions.
Finally, an average mark will be generated for each movie in order to rank them.

Why is there a category for best Frenchman in this contest?
ROCCAT, the german manufacturer of gaming peripherals, is powering this contest instead of on our side. Actually, our partner is focused on the French TF2 community and especially the French league. After discussion with our sponsor, ROCCAT agreed to help us in this international project and this justifies the French place.

What countries are eligible to win ROCCAT gear ?
For this edition, the only countries eligible to win gear from ROCCAT are the following:
– France
– Belgium
– United-Kingdom
– Germany
– Spain
– Italy
– Switzerland
– Austria
If a winner resides outside of these countries, he/ she is not eligible to receive gear from ROCCAT due to the high cost of shipping.
Cash prizes can be won by anyone regardless of your country. Half from the community and the other half from an anonymous donor (who has decided the split of the cashprize especially for the first place). Thus, we will try to renegotiate the intial cash prize. Where currency conversion is an issue, we can renegotiate the cash prize into an equivalent; either games and/or tf2 items.

If a French movie maker takes the first or second place, what happens to the French dedicated place ?
In that case, the highest Frenchman prize will be awarded to the third ranked entry.

TF2 Connexion staff and ROCCAT say good luck to all TF2 moviemakers !

ETF2L Season 18 Week 2 Premiership Lazy Pandas vs BFF – VanillaTV


May 22nd Announcement
Tagged: arie Byte e-thug etf2l Season 18

Byte — Tonight BFF will play their first official in Season 18, due to rockit wildcarding week 1. The roster looks weird but also talented and experienced. With the likes of kaidus and Zebbosai dictating the game play and quality with Mirelin and Stark adding more +xp bonus to the team, all eyes will be on fl1p (I coming :3) and Knutsson.




Question is, will they be able to bridge the gap of being or playing for top 4 in ETF2L compared to the other members in the team.

Lazy pandas on the other hand have nothing to lose going into this, the fact that they are competing in prem should give them a hope and try attitude. With them already playing their week 1 official vs 4-25 and losing badlands 5-0 and narrowly losing gullywash 4-3, they’ll be looking to steal some points off BFF.

Having the experienced zoob and Hildreth may not be enough to dent or leave a bad taste with BFF.

ETF2L Season 18 Premiership Week 2 – rockit vs – VanillaTV + prizes to be won!


May 20th Announcement
Tagged: 21:15 arie Byte cp_badlands cp_gullywash_final1

Byte — Second week into the ETF2L Season 18 and it looks to be an exciting match between these two teams. Very contrasting in terms of team semantics. With rockit forming very late before signs up closed, that cheeky Irishman Admirable decided to tally along and be the veteran medic and guide his team to the playoffs.

rockit are yet to play any games, after they wildcarded their week 1 game versus BFF, playing their debut game as a team in prem tonight should set up the scene very well against the russians. who have already played and lost 6-0 against arguably the hardest team in prem this season Epsilon E-sports. While they know it was a long shot to win, I’m sure some of them will be glad they got this game out of the way so the team can build momentum.

Key players to look out for will be Forsak3n and ShaDoWBurn pairing, after hitler Forsak3n learning after me, and kicked msh, he had a few words to say about how he feels going into this match.

“we have no msh, its going to be hard”

Tagged: Admirable Arie Tuesday Byte cup etf2l

ETF2L Season 16 Premiership Week 5 TLR vs Decerto


October 27th Announcement
Tagged: beasly Blackout Gaming cp_badlands cp_gullywash_final1 decerto

byte — Another premiership action packed night, with TLR on a roll, can they make it 3 match wins in a row, or will the ‘desperately needing points’ decerto be able to steal all 6 points!

The subtle difference tonight will be how well the scouts can focus fire on what the demomen do, with big boy Hildreth outputting so much damage on average will the scouts be able to focus fire and destroy the enemy?

A win tonight for decerto will help them dramatically to avoid the relegation playoff’s, and aid them to stay in prem for next season.

Tagged: beasly cp_badlands cp_metalworks_rc5 division 1 etf2l

Byte — An exciting division 1 match between two fine teams competing for premiership next season.

ETF2L Season 16 Week 2 Division 1 LEGO vs Fenneks E-sports


October 6th Announcement
Tagged: arie division 1 etf2l Fenneks E-sports LEGO

Byte — An exciting match for you tonight, with the legendary F2 moving forward with LEGO. They survived their first test against the solid but content Israeli team ahvaT hA neshariM winning in a close fought match on cp_gullywash 5-3 and cp_granary 4-3.

Fenneks e-sports on the other hand secured a draw versus the powerhouse finns The MIPC Organization, narrowly losing out on granary but deservedly winning gullywash, a straight win versus LEGO would overtake LEGO and put Fenneks right back in automatic promotion for Premiership next season.

LEGO’s roster:

Medic – F2
Demoman – Dr.Phil
Soldiers – crizzl and Natural
Scouts – helberg and zen

I caught up with F2 for a few words going into this match tonight:

“I believe it will be a really close match where small mistakes will decide who wins. Their players have more experience at this level, but with our controlled play style, I believe we have a good chance of winning both maps. Also, shoutout to calm

Fenneks E-sports

Medic – skeej
Demoman – kr4tos
Soldiers – Salmon and Killari
Scouts – gf_18 and delzic

kr4tos had a few words to say going into this match:

“After our playoff match and our week 1 match were not that what we really wanted to score in these matches. we are looking forward now to play our week 2 match now. we know LEGO is not an easy opponent since they tried really hard and playing together for a long time, but we are prepared for this match and we feel ready”
