League play

First forum post, this Christmas blew my mind. I was a long time TFC player and used to league on UGC. I was heartbroken when TFC went away and super excited for FF. Of course this was like 10 or 11 years ago now and I stumbled across FF again just last week. Very exciting.

I'm nowhere near where I used to be but I've been playing on moto when I can find some people on. I'm hoping it's just the holiday season that has the servers primarily empty.

Are there any leagues or tournaments happening, or did I join the FF party too late? I read UGC had plans for a FF league in 2014, did that happen? Just trying to get a feel for the competitive community, I'd like to find a group of players to compete with but I'd settle for finding a group that just plays regularly. Guys still out there?

No league/clan play going on at the moment because the competitive (and general) population of the game is so small, but you're in luck, there's still some of us who play pickups on IRC. Server Quakenet channel #ff.pickup.

Thanks. I guess I'll go get IRC. Is there a typical time that you get together or do you just play when enough of you are around?

I'd say 6pm est is when we usually start. But it all depends on who's around sometimes it's more like 4pm.

Also, since we're testing the greenlit version, that could bring lots of players in, and give us enough people for leagues. Be patient, and keep playing.

Will definitely keep playing. I was following FF as it was being created, seeing the TFC map remakes and player models. Before it was released though life happened and I just kind of stopped following. I was blown away the first time I played FF because of the nostalgia and the great similarities. TFC was/is such a great game but for me it was the first game that I belonged to, if that makes sense. Played in leagues, belonged to a great online community of players, played with the same group over and over almost daily, it sucked when that ended. It would be great to go back there with FF.

like FDA says, anytime after 6PM EST, especially on the weekends.

Yeah, I know the feeling quite well. In fact, I'm still playing with a TFC Community like that. Sure, it's a pub that only runs 2fort, but it's a damn fun pub.

Anyhow, welcome back to FF, and I hope to see you playing sometime!

no.

When I played TFC I was with [BoPs], who was prevalent early, then a few off shoots from the OWOL community. This was all 9 or 10 years ago though, I would be surprised if anyone knew what that stuff is.

Too soon bro. Too soon.

a lot of these players are still learning to bhop. Was considering getting a training server to teach people how to advance their game. You could totally be apart of this too. (Considering you're already eager to defend a title (which probably shouldn't exist anymore considering new player-base and update.))

Trust me, i'd love to see e0. Revived, but alot of these new players are either asking what grenade does what, or cracking fart jokes about Tf2. They're currently treating it like a tdm. So give it time or help us teach these players how the game works (if you haven't already. )

I know, it should be common sense. But there's potential in some of these guys.

I would love a private server where you could take new players to teach them, with something like one on one mentoring. Taking new players to trimp training or just a normal map, and showing them movement.

Completely agree!

Let's make this a reality starting with :e0: coming back to do this.

I seen the same, and there's lots of help needed on these servers.

Let's chat more about this on the weekend to get the ball rolling.
