  • 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

    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.

  • playing on team spooky season 2, even though it had a sour ending, i played on a strong roster and was friends with more or less everyone on it

    subbing on shroom gang season 3 was a really chill and fun season, also I got to play invite for the first time and it was also when I really began learning how to play demoman in hl

    all of squirtyay season 6, my favorite season + favorite team because i made so many good friends and we got a lot better over the season, honesty is one of my favorite teammates because he is really smart player, getting to know johhny/figsy/reigh

    fridge s7 of course because i got to play a new class, was able to maincall, and basically built a team last minute that had low expectations and able to grow as a team. this is also really significant because i had gone from playing engineer on teams where i was always one of the younger and more inexperienced players, to being thrust into a combo class and surrounded by newer players. suddenly becoming that “experienced” leader was a role that allowed me to really grow as a player and person. watching players like kasper and page get better over the season was a joy that i didnt really expect or think about before the season started, and i like to think that my leadership/calling help develop them as players. and yes the best moment from this season was beating the cuties in an upset win in playoffs.

    any season with jel/jebus
