The second round of the highlander competition is over.  The round started with 128 teams and is now on its way to the 64 team stage (round 3).

At the moment I've only seen the BoFI STV demos and Team Wiki put a good defence but sadly fell on both Badwater and Steel.  Commisserations to Team Wiki.

BoFIII also move onto the third round stage after winning against Late Night Shinanigans.

The first round of the highlander competition is over.  The round started with 256 teams and is now on its way to the 128 team stage (round 2).

Sadly BoFII were knocked out on Nov 18th.  BoFI and BoFIII are still in it.

BoFI put up a great show and finished Upward in a quick time.  Gravelpit provided a little more of a headache but the came through.

BoFIII started poorly on upward only passing the first cap point and almost made it to the second.  Gravelpit was a different story and saw BoFIII's redemption and created a tie to move onto Viaduct.  They then steamrolled their way to victory and onto the next round.

Commiserations to BoFII.

Well done to BoFI and BoFIII.

So you may have noticed our very own BBloke ran a halloween competition during the scary weekend.  Well the winner is....

Do you think you can find the bug in all of this?!  Took me a little while but then I am slow!.

We first thought one wasn't enough. So we created two.  We soon out grew two and became three.

Festers Place community may well look small but it's packed tight with talent.  Unfortunately we can't speak of it because it would get some of us in serious trouble with our mums.

Check our Highlander forum for more details.

Contrary to popular belief Fester's Place has some pretty decent players.  So many infact they decided to band together and give ETF2L Highlander a go.

We had so many sign ups it felt only proper to create 2 teams.  It's all for laughs and giggles and you can read how unorganised we are here.

First things first though.. we needed a name see what we came up with.

Congratulations to John Freeman for coming 3rd in Valve's Propaganda Poster Contest.  Valve have finally gotten around to issuing the prizes and here it is.


John Freeman's 3rd Prize Hat

Wear it with pride John Freeman.

Valve have started to allow users to offer up custom content to be added into the Team Fortress 2 world.  I'm not going to go into too much detail 'cos you can read all about it on the Team Fortress 2 website.

There's been a lot of talk on the forums and some of us have moan, some of us have come up with a few ideas. One member has sent in his own HUGE contribution.

Smoke Def's Mundschutz

We are hoping Valve add this little gem to the game and keep our fingers-crossed for SmokeDef.  You can see more of his great 3d item artwork in his own Contributions gallery as well as his great Propaganda poster.  He was just missed out being placed for his propaganda poster but our very own John Freeman won 2nd Prize for his depiction.

Good Luck SmokeDef from all at Festers Place. :)
