  • There was a tftv made about this, but not enough people have signed up still. It literally starts on the 1st of May for invite! Stop playing a terrible game mode like highlander and play a REAL format for a chance to win the prize pool!

    The tftv thread goes as follows:

    This is the event thread for the upcoming North American Community Clash sponsored by DreamHack and organised by EssentialsTF. Details about the event will be posted here when available. Questions about the event should be placed here as well and should be answered promptly. I would encourage any teams interested to check out the tournament pages as that contains all the relevant details about the event, but also keep an eye on our twitter page for updates: https://twitter.com/TF2Essentials

    Here’s the website for signups: https://lan.tf/

    I’m not a part of the staff, but I felt like this could help.

  • Apparently, some people are also confused about how to find a team for this event. I’m sure RGL would be cool with you posting an lfp or lft in the discord or the forums. For those not playing in the invite division, there’s a main and newcomer division. Main is paid newcomer is not, but there’s still a prize pool. Don’t let this event die!

  • this place has a free prize pool comeonnnn

  • @Rene There’s an LFT/LFP channel in essentials.tf/discord

  • @ire there you go, people join the discord!

  • We have accepted our first wave of participants for the open tournament. If you have registered, you should have received an email confirming whether you have been accepted to play. There are 5 days left to sign up to the tournament so I encourage you to get signed up sooner rather than later as there is a limited amount of teams we can allow.

    We have both an open and newcomer tournament which you can sign up to, if you have ever wanted to test out your skills in competitive but didn’t want to play against seasoned veterans theres a place for you (and there are prizes for the winners of the newcomer clash). But if you want a shot at our $2,400 prize pool consider signing up for the open tournament.

    Hope to see you there!

  • Signups for both the Newcomer and Main tournaments have been extended to Thursday 6th May at 18:00 EDT. Make sure that you are registered before then otherwise you will not make it into the tournament. We have enough signups to run the main tournament but we would love to see more teams, especially for the Newcomer tournament. If you know anyone who is new to competitive TF2 I would encourage you to get them to sign up for that.

  • Signups for the NA Community Clash have ended. If you have signed up these are your next steps:

    1. Ensure that your team captain is on the Discord;

    2. Contact an admin letting them know who is your captain for your team, with their Discord Tag (Username#0000);
      a) If you want a member of your team to act as a deputy captain, please let an admin know;

    3. Check-in for the event starts on the 7th at 17:00. All teams must be checked in before the deadline on the 8th 1 hour before the tournament starts;

    4. Keep an eye on the Discord for all updates to the event;

    5. Ensure that you have read the rules on the Tournament Page.

  • Thank you everyone for playing and congrats to our winners!

    If you have ways you’d like to see us change and improve feel free to reach out, or message in #feedback in the Discord.

    For those receiving medals/prizes we’re working on wrapping up the tournament and will work on distribution as we can. Details in the rules:
