  • What are you favorite memories you’ve made during your time playing competitive TF2? I will start.

    • Playing Highlander on Ultiduo maps in lobbies. Shit was hilarious and absolutely chaotic.

    • Winning my first RGL match.

    • Post-season player awards with my Prolander team TAX FRAUD. Basically I decided to give everyone a special award for sticking around that season.

    • Winning my first Highlander match on Swiftwater. Felt amazing afterwards.

    • Davidredface pug, which happened last night.

    • Playing TF2Center with Jimbob the first time.

    • Goomba stomping & killing agb with the jetpack while he was on scout in a cascade pug
    • Getting almost 100 kills in a ready steady pan match
    • Hosting highlander pugs
    • Season 7 detonator & jetpack bombs
    • Season 4 pyro ubers with 1k9k
    • I am reserving the cliche statement of the experiences with friends I’ve made throughout the seasons

  • This is NOT me plugging my own twitch! But these clips highlight what I love most about competitive TF2 the most, and I think that the majority of people that see this will think they’re pretty funny.

    What I’ve found to be the moments that stick out most to me are the funny shenanigans that my team pulls off, or hyping up my players when they make big plays.

    The wins are fun, hanging with my teammates and the community is a great time, but it’s these little moments that make me really happy I’ve stuck with this game this long.

  • -season 25 steel as a whole, more specifically bullying ghost for a whole season
    -med going pan in grand finals
    -burger pugs
    -anything involving bliztank pyro
    -anything involving jimbob doohicky
    -hh brother and ben shapiro allstars exp. cup teams
    -the failed kevinferior esports 7s experiment
    -coming back for a single season to play with my best friend sebbers

    • Entire season of season 1 (6s), too bad it has not aged well.

    • Anything with rock0 and jimbob.

    • NR6s s2, most chaotic and dumb shit ever. However my, teammates and everyone else had somewhat of a blast due to how much of a shitfest it was.

    • Anime movie night with one 6s team.

    • Having had a small rivalry with cyclowns and some spy mains.

    • Jas giving me a craft antlers.

    • Anytime I hanged out in the Pans and Bricks Discord after my scrims.

    I have not been able to find myself committed to any 6s/HL teams ever since after my first teams in RGL comp. I am still grateful for any friendship or rivalry I have formed throughout my time here. I truly wish I could quit this game lol

    • Upsetting the #1 seed as the #8 seed in RGL HL season 6 Main playoffs and hearing people’s reactions to it after the game.

    • On the last map of the 3rd place season 4 6’s Main playoffs, down 0-4 in the second half, and coming back to win the map 5-4 and the series 3-2.

  • pretty much the entirety of ugc s24
    -went undefeated in the HL reg season with a win over dK
    -went undefeated in the 4s reg season with a win over the bo4r team
    -went 4-1 in the concurrent 7s season, sweeping velocity and getting 2 rounds off of froyo
    -started 11-0 in esea open running double pyro and became that season’s Open Villains

    ended up missing placement in HL/6s and only came 2nd in 4s/7s but that span of time might’ve been the most fun i’ve ever had

    some other scattered ones
    -going iron to plat with sleepteiner, and iron-gold with most of the old door guys
    -most of s15 gold and all the crazy drama and twists and rivalries and friendships, personally taking a half off aeiou when we were outmatched on almost every class, and the insane ban paals comeback against dream killers being spectated by like 40 people in the nasty mumble
    -s20 gold door vs jammers rivalry and that insane grand finals that went until like 2am

  • Playing TF2center with firepow
    Playing with We 4fit in S3 Main
    Beating Gods Plan in S2 Open playoffs
    Playing Burger pugs with anyone but kevbad
    getting third in the martbomb newbie prolander cup with r4bbit and Rock0
    Flower and firepow fucking dying in VC when minion sent me porn
    Any of the EXP HL cups (please do another one Exa those are so much fun)
    TyaTheOlive calling me a HA Johnny knock-off
    20-0ing dro (he sucks dick lol)
    ((dro is really bad))
    (((dro fucking sucks)))
    ((((i hate dro))))
    (((((he never hit air pipe)))))
    The incident.

  • None of mine are HL so pardon my ESEA seasons.

    s25, the whole season: that season was a shitshow of having to pay up tons of people and roster issues due to vacations and PC problems. But my god was it fun to do the random bullshit and then barely eek’d into playoffs off of 2 very close wins. Fav memory of that season: the multiple gully last "submarine ubers, those were hilarious at the time and still get a chuckle out of me.

    s29, upsetting hlpugs on product: that win was so satisfying, especially after watching them win open s28 when they had continually lost to my s28 team. Hlpugs had also beaten the ridiculous sandbag/cheater team on product earlier in the season. My team was just a bunch of 6 piece McNobodies who happened to never miss. Saila went nuts that game dropping 80 frags and we ended up beating them 4-3. It also added another tally to my “killed other teams” counter.

    s30, getting 2nd place in IM: probably my best season. We all wanted to do as best as we could and I ended up playing with some boys. Highlights: beating other top teams such as another sandbag team or the pseudo sandbag team. And getting 2nd in the end. Even tho we didn’t win, I was super happy.

  • -Season 23 steel on bringer of ouchies in ugc was my first real fun season with friends.
    -Season 1 of rgl was a not great season but i made good friends from 4loko.
    -During this time, i played in hlpugs and made many more mistakes but i met people that gave good advice as i played.
    -Season 3 of rgl i met the cafeteria milk crew and we went to get 3rd place where i finally got out of main to play adv
    -Season 7 I played with my team that won adv and i was happy with everyone on the team since we did it together.

  • season 17 of ugc steel highlander. ayy lmao happyBOB decided to not allow my team to ring an iron highlander medic. we proceeded to play 8v9 without a spy of course…we rolled them. gg easy. after the match the sniper on bobs team got banned for cheating. AYY LMAO xD

  • @blake Do not talk about HappyBob in that tone… Shameful

  • I have a lot of really fond memories from playing back in the UGC days.

    • S10 Silver was an interesting one because it started with a three way early dK vs Karl’s team vs Animal Farm rivalry. Where the former two would end up merging together, and Animal Farm would become 7!, setting the stage for the next season.

    • S11 Gold had really fierce matches to determine the top 3, and a really fun dK vs 7! set of match-ups. We ended up winning 1st place in the grand finals vs Cranked Gaming, a straight up full 6s invite team from the time.

    • S12 Plat was the first full round robin season with a cash prize pool. This season had extremely experienced teams bringing their A+++ game, full hype, articles, broadcasts, trash talk, etc. It really had it all. I think most people from the time agree that this season had the best competition the league had ever seen.
      We had heartbreaking losses to murderforce and DRS in the playoffs, where both those teams were really strong and outplayed us.

    • S13 Plat also had really intense competition, and it was a great opportunity to compete in the top 3. We ended up placing third after a very strong win over ET on upward with 3 seconds left, just to get edged out of the playoffs by mTs reverse sweeping us on viaduct and ET crushing us after.

    • S14 Plat started with great top 3 competitors (20b, ET, evil, dK), especially after .knd emerged mid-season as a very strong team and eventually defeated us in a great match on viaduct in the playoffs.

    • S16 Plat had a lot of strong teams returning after the summer season, and a variety of move-ups from Gold which ended up being awesome for the division. This was another season where we ended up placing top 3 after a back-to-back gullywash extravaganza where we lost to .knd and mTs two weeks in a row to end the playoffs.

    Additional good times:

    • #mix.na.hl & #pug.na.hl in the IRC days where Metawe and I held the first and second most played pugs respectively.

    • The TeamfortressTV Highlander Invitational (I think that’s what it was called) during S12 which was a great weekend event with full casting coverage and a prize pool.

    • Winning NA Plat vs EU Prem showmatches.

    My top 3 favorite games:

    • S13 Playoffs: dK vs ET on upward
    • S11 Playoffs: dK vs 7! on upward & ashville
    • S12 Playoffs: dK vs DRS on viaduct (a truly fierce and heartbreaking game)
  • S19 silv/gold getting 3rd. first team I lead for a full season, we worked pretty hard for it and I’d consider that my first time maining on a “good” team

    S20 plat getting to play the 2nd half of the season. it was a lot of fun being thrown in the deep end, even if i had to play dK like two out of the four? games i played

    S21 plat owning snail time was funny, playing w/ paul and andrew was fun

    S22 making GFs was cool 🙂

    S25 playing with carcin and fuzion was an experience. to this day I think my team’s roster this season was the strongest team I ever played on

    rgl S2 rolling the enpire was hilarious

    rgl S7 winning advanced was a lot of fun, and the first time in a while it felt like my team wanted to put in the work to get good

  • @Aegis holy shit aegis please come back to slap up invite and save highlander

  • this was ages ago but the few key memories i had were a bit easy to remember.

    S16 Ugc Gold - Reserve sweeping team wykd with gR (Gibrex/ THE GABEROLLERS) on ashville week. We weren’t feeling too hot by match round but then we started sweeping them and that was probably one of the single most exciting moments i ever had in HL.

    S19 UGC Plat - Making playoffs and the final match of the season vs. dK, we worked really hard that whole season and made it to playoffs. While the match was definitely a stomp for dK, it was the funniest match due to how many times our spy butterknifed b4nny to death causing him to rage on stream.

    2016 Region Wars - Playing with a lot of players from the PNW was really fun. I made a pretty great play and it was the best clip i gotten off of a casted match

    for recent memories
    S7: fridge letting me play a match and being able to take a round off knd with fridge on cascade, hearing perenne after doing that was the most exciting and funniest thing that whole season.

  • S19 - Steel grands was cool

    S20 - I played with uncle Dane very cool

    S21 - sb! Was cool also shout out lunean

    S22 - met a lot of great people this season and also won silver which was very epic

    S24 - didnt feel like a real season but wall^ was still fun

    S25 - beating spu (lol)

    S1 - 3rd place when nobody thought ad would be shit

    S2 - 2nd place + got to play with rain again which was epic

    S3 - 2nd place + playing with ad was epic

    Preach.

    Sorry, ggs.

    • #mix.na.hl & #pug.na.hl in the IRC days where Metawe and I held the first and second most played pugs respectively.

    pug.na.hl had some of the best pick up games of all time

    • The TeamfortressTV Highlander Invitational (I think that’s what it was called) during S12 which was a great weekend event with full casting coverage and a prize pool.

    Nobody ever brings up the TFTV HL Invitational but it was some of the most fun I’ve ever had playing TF2. RGL should look into reviving the concept, I believe it was held on a Saturday and the top teams just battled it out all day in a round robin tournament.

    My top 3 favorite games:

    • S13 Playoffs: dK vs ET on upward
    • S11 Playoffs: dK vs 7! on upward & ashville
      > * S12 Playoffs: dK vs DRS on viaduct (a truly fierce and heartbreaking game)

    Is there a cast of this match? Good to see you around Aegis.

  • S19 Gold: Upsetting RK in the regular season when they were 7-0 (Thanks sb! Gabe)
    S23 Plat: Pulling a huge upset in Plat playoffs against Got$ to get 4th
    S5 Advanced: Winning the division with IHM in one of the closest GFs matches in a long time.
    S7 Advanced: Defeating Blue99 and winning Steel Week after struggling against every team on that map to make playoffs.
