    Question TF2 Division Event Info




    The Team Fortress 2 Division proudly offers a variety of events: fun ones, competitive ones, and many more besides! The purpose behind these events is to provide people with enjoyable and risible experiences that cannot be found anywhere else.


    Around the World
    Phineas Fogg took 80 days to go around the world. Now you can do it in 45 minutes. Everyone is the same class for five minutes and then changes to the next class until all nine classes have been played. Way more fun than Magellan had circumnavigating the world.

    Dodgeball
    Remember how you used to play this game in gym class? Now relive those moments, only with crockets instead of balls! Two teams compete on special maps to attempt to eliminate each other by airblasting rockets at each other.

    Dog Tag Scrim
    In EdgeGamers, there are 3 ranks:

    =(e)=
    =(eG)=
    =(eGO)=

    Dog Tag Scrims are a three part event. The first match is between members ranked =(e)= and =(eG)=. Everyone with the =(e)= tag will all be on one team, and same goes with the =(eG)= tag. Whoever the winner is will then go on to face =(eGO)= ranked members. Then, for the last match, the winners of the second match will face leadership. Whoever wins the final game, will be the champions and receive unlimited bragging rights until the next Dog Tag Scrim. The winning team will also receive the TF2 Dog Tag Scrim Award!

    Highlander
    There can only be one…of each class! Each team is composed of nine people, with one of each class represented. Prove to your foes that you are the best in your class by besting them on the field of honor.

    Karaoke Night
    It's like The Voice, only without commercials or talent! Join your fellow members in song in pursuit of the special Song of the Seahorse achievement. This event happens only on Team Speak once a month.

    Late Night Fight
    We’re staying up past our curfew and there’s nothing anyone can do about it! During this event we will play custom maps as well as Valve maps, depending on what the players want! This is a community member only time.

    Prophunt
    Pay no attention to that bush over there…it’s just a bush. Don’t even look twice at it. Wait, did it move? Surprise! Pyros are let loose to find all of the scouts disguised as background props. They may even be hiding in plain sight…

    Road Trip
    Road trip’s are when one division heads out to another division, and joins in on the fun in their regular servers, as well as enjoying playing some fun games in their event server.

    Royal Rumble
    Traditionally, uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. On Royal Rumble nights, though, just the opposite applies: sixteen leaders square off against sixteen non-leaders. If Leadership dominates you, you are kicked out and can only come back if there is room. If you dominate Leadership, showcase your skilled kill to the world and claim a terrific bounty!

    Special Map Night
    From the halls of Black Mesa to the sands of Warpath, we merrily tour classic, custom maps. Every night is a trip to another exotic land. Be sure to take a lot of screenshots!

    Worst Event Ever
    Have you ever been ashamed of how you play a particular class? Don’t worry; your secret is safe with me…and everyone else who will be playing their worst class at the same time. After 30 minutes, switch over to your best class and reclaim your self-esteem.
