An update to Team Fortress 2 has been released. The update will be applied automatically when you restart Team Fortress 2. The major changes include:

  • Ended the Jungle Inferno Campaign
  • Added a contracts-only pass to allow players who did not participate in the Jungle Inferno Campaign to access the Jungle Inferno contracts. This pass does not grant campaign-specific perks such as the enhanced Casual Badge.

Ready Up: Competitive Team Fortress 2 is a film produced by Marketplace.tf about the competitive Team Fortress 2 esports scene, a scene that has thrived continuously on the community’s support. From pro players and viewers, to casters and producers, as well programmers and designers, the film explores a look into the creation of competitive 6v6 over the past 10 years.

The film will be premiering on February 18th 8:00PM ET / 5:00PM PT, live at ESA Rewind II before the Invite Grand Finals at Esports Arena in Santa Ana, CA. Additionally, you can tune into ESA’s Twitch channel.

The third season of RGL.gg is about to begin! This Pick/Ban Prolander league is broken down into multiple divisions. Paid divisions with a total prize pool of $4,000 for experienced players and completely free divisions for players who want to try out this dynamic, fun and fresh competitive format.

RGL.gg is currently only a North American league, but plans to expand to Europe in the next couple months. New team registration ends on February 20th. Players who are looking for a team can post in the LFT section of the RGL website. Register today at the RGL.gg website.

The Jungle Inferno Campaign will be officially coming to an end this Sunday, February 11th. But don’t despair — Jungle Inferno contracts will continue to be available for existing pass owners. The ConTracker will continue tracking your progress, and you’ll still have access to the exclusive items in the Mercenary Park Gift Shop. You’ll have to say goodbye to the Jungle Inferno main menu theme and the Special Events matchmaking category, but you’ll still be able to play all of the Jungle Inferno maps. Each map will move to the appropriate matchmaking group based on its game mode. Now get back to taunting complete strangers!

So, there was a rule we made about the new Elite dodgeball rockets! The first person to complain about them gets the server deleted!

CONGRATS TO HORSE AND BULL! You winnnnnnn.

As of this day forward, Elite will no longer be as the rockets just aren’t good enough for you. We know you had a hard time reflecting them, and probably blamed your lag as well. However, in reality it was probably just you.

Don’t worry, in reality though… I’ll probably just reset the rockets to there old config!

Happy 2018!
