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