TF2CC North American Newbie Cup

November 11, 2022 - TF2 Team

TF2 Coaching Central is announcing their third North American Newbie Cup, a learning experience and friendly competition for people who are new to competitive 6v6.

Players with no to minimal competitive experience will sign up to be placed on a team of six, led by a coach who will teach the basics of how to play the 6v6 format and help you learn the maps.

Several former Newbie Cup alumni have gone on to play in RGL, the biggest North American competitive TF2 league.

Sign-ups are open now, and the deadline to apply and be placed on a team is November 23. Team and coach assignments will be made by November 25 and tournament matches will be the weekend of December 17-18.

Fortress Faceoffs presents to you a tale as old as time: A crew of mercs fighting for their lives to escape the grasp of Hell!

Happens to the best of us, of course. In a voyage to uncover a cache of hidden treasure within the murky and treacherous waters of Michiganne, a ship of five drunken savages (that's you!) was caught in the eye of a treacherous storm and cast out to sea. This invoked the presence of a being only spoken of in shanties... Having been fed up with the sudden delivery of dead meat on his doorstep, THE DEVIL!!! himself forced these brutes back onto their boats and had them float across the River Styx so that he could be left in peace. After regaining consciousness and adjusting their one good eye, these men realized they weren't alone on their quest! An amassment of ships was on the same track, all with the goal of claiming bounty! Armed with cannons and ready to charge, these scurvy dogs must defeat all the other swashbucklin' sailors and make it to the treasure alone! With the sound of explosions and slurred screams from every direction, THE DEVIL!!! may never get his rest...

Sign up your shipmates today for Fortress Faceoffs' 6th event and become known as the best crew in history! The departure begins Oct. 14th @ 13:00 CEST (for Europe) / Oct. 21st @ 1:00pm EDT (for the Americas) and will last around 3 days each. For more information about event rules, prizes, and more, join the Fortress Faceoffs Discord and double-donk your way out of the deep sea! The top 8 crews will be broadcasted live, so perform your best or get washed up!
