Welcome to our special ETF2L Season 13 page dedicated to our premiere Team Fortress 2 competitive team!

Everything we’ve got to offer about our season is collected here in to one convenient area — please help yourself and share with others as we cheer on our boys in the grand final!

A request: it’s the first time we’ve tried doing this, we know it’s hobbled together and looks a bit ugly but if you’ve got anything else to say we’d really appreciate hearing it – good or bad – in case it could help us make a future version better, thanks so much!

@Admirable – James is an ubernoob. When not standing perfectly still in the crosshairs of snipers, you can find him dropping ubers and missing crossbows. No strafe. Just standing (often in a very poor positions) and healing. @Tviq – Kevyn is a marksman. A relentlessly aggressive scout and a game-changing sniper, at any given moment you can never be entirely sure if you are in this Swede’s sights until it’s too late. @Smzi – Sam is a guardian. A watchful protector. A dark knight. When the scattergun and pistol are empty he’ll show you his bat, man. A ruthless German, he hates to lose to scrubs, which in his eyes is everyone. @Retsh0ck – Asaf is a champion. The most decorated veteran in this Crack Clan roster, his aggressive play style and massive damage output make him a prime target for our opponents, but hey it’s their funeral. @Ippz – Felix is a perfectionist. A passionate student of the game, he has risen to the Premier Division in a short space of time to cement himself as one of the most calculated and creative roamers going. @minimoose – Jack is a sledgehammer. The rookie of the team, his angelic golden locks belie a monster whose damage has been known to hit five figures; if you survive his rockets, his shotgun will find you.

Link Description
ETF2L Biggest league in the world for Team Fortress 2 offering hardware and cash, run by a volunteer staff and offering an environment very unique in Europe. If you’ve been under a rock all this time, you should probably check them out!
VanillaTF2 It was all a very basic idea. The share quantity of TF2 coverage was missing. Not from the lack of interest, but from the barriers that prevented coming or existing authors from providing that sought after coverage. The idea was to lower those barriers. Rather a few bad posts, than none at all.
SalTV It’s SalTV, by Sal — he’s not fat, so not sure why he calls himself fatmop but he sure doers offer a high level of community involvement especially by way of his broadcasts!
The Last Resort The Last Resort (formerly Nitrose) are the dark horses of Season 13, captained by handsome demoman and main caller, HYS. Predicted my many to finish 4th they managed to usurp Crack Clan from 3rd place with a convincing draw versus BFF in the last game of the main season.
BFF BFF represent the last remnants of the Nordic old guard. Combining Finland and Sweden’s best remaining players with a Latvian lunatic and a daring English demoman. Strongly rated as the second best team in Europe despite their most recent result.
Epsilon eSports Epsilon eSports are the Rolls Royce of European Team Fortress 2. They have hand-picked the best players for each position in the aftermath of i46 in August to create Europe’s first superteam, but as the old saying goes “the bigger they come, the harder they fall”.
