My lurching attempt to revitalise our YouTube channel brought with it the realisation that creating a video-a-week after editing a podcast-a-week is a lot of additional work. So I did the traditional YouTube thing; I just stopped, and didn’t tell anyone. That’s a really lousy *out* and has weighed heavy on my mind ever since. Up steps former KritzKast audio editor Micah, (fresh from editing Podcast76 the Overwatch podcast) looking […]
I have found a kindred spirit. Another old git who remembers the good old days of Team Fortress, Quake and Wolfenstein from the first time around. His name is MrPaladin and he does the best darn impression of a cassette audio tape being fast forwarded you’ll ever hear.

The Blapature Co. Summer Jam is a 24 Hour Team Fortress 2 charity livestream, featuring a host of personalities from the TF community. Their previous charity livestream raised over $800 for Child's Play, and their work with Rally Call has raised over £4000 for International Animal Rescue. This past weekend, Blapature Co. supported Child's Play again, with a donation target of $2000, which they have absolutely blown away! But don't worry if you missed it! There's still time to donate and show your support. Click here to do just that and here to check out Blapature Co.'s Twitch channel.

It took a while, but we're back with a new website! This update involves around both the functionality aspect as well as the organisation behind the scenes.
The "Yellow Pages of TF2 " returned in the form of "Jarate Pages":
Explore and watch videos from all kind of TF2 YouTube Creators.
Integration with competitive medals and unusuals.
Gameserver support (creators can add their own server to their profile).
Updated Community Quickplay:
SourceCBL and Roll The Dice integration (indication flags).
Searching for a specific map, will now also show related maps that are being played on.
Overall style update.
The website tracks all maps that are running on gameservers (empty/full/Valve/Community gameservers: everything).
View aggregated information about ALL maps on the website (Reviewed by UEAKCrash).
Increased polling rate, news will be added faster.
Announcing Global Radio Network: A discord bot which automatically posts based on your settings (can be found in your user settings).
Added: SourceCBL and Valve News Network to the news section.
Updated Credits page to include all the artist/SFMers that worked on the website.
NyanZak will join our team as "Community Manager", to help us accomodate the extra organisational challenges ahead.
Updated Patreon goals / tiers to reflect future projects/goals.
We will also start representing the casual and community side of TF2 towards Valve, communicating feedback towards Valve on regular intervals. We already had regular contact moments to discuss the current server browser and community side of TF2. Valve employees now seem to visit our website (quickplay/statistics) on a regular basis.
More extensive affilitions with websites such as SourceCBL and user groups such as "The Uprising YouTubers" to stimulate the community.
Improve Community Quickplay - We received a lot of usefull feedback on what can be done better. We will start incorporating those changes.
Proof of Concept projects such as "Story Mode" and "Meet Your Map". More information will follow soon (Valve time might apply here).
Any feedback is welcome! But just like Valve we need to prioritize certain things due to lack of time. If you like our work, don't forget to chip in a few bucks over on Patreon to support our cause!

Suspicions abound over an update to an application that may or may or not be a new version of TF2. Okay, it probably isn’t but you can’t blame me for getting excited. Although some of that is probably because I’ve got obla or flozzlm from ozfortress here.

I don’t get to use superlatives enough anymore. Which is why I’m glad that I can finally say that we had a chance to talk this week with Geel. He is the co-owner of the three largest trading resources in Team Fortress 2; Scrap.tf Marketplace.tf and now finally Backpack.tf. It’s hard to see it any other way. Geel is the most important man in TF2 trading. Also on the show […]
Sigafoo is a man we’ve had on the show before. Yotts is a man who’s things we’ve had on the show before. Freelands is a man no show can hold for very long. Together they form (part of) RGL.GG, the answer to a question no-one asked but everyone was happy to listen to. Also on the show: Proposed Balance Changes SourceCBL the global ban list
YouTuber and hastily assembled potato lover, TRGame joins us this week. A week when Valve breaks their vow of silence to let us know they are still thinking about palm trees, tigers and vines. Not the wine type, though maybe them as well. Also on this week’s show: RTGame YouTube | Twitch | Twitter Update June 16th 2017 TF2 Blog Post on the Jungle Update!
