The first Left 4 Dead league has already opened its doors by UGC, known for its alternative gaming leagues such as 7v7 TF2. I think it’s great that a league has already been started for it, because it will make it easier for LAN parties to have Left 4 Dead tournaments in the future by using these rules that have already been established.

My 7v7 TF2 team, Stacked Team, will also be competing in L4D, so I was automatically added to the roster. I had a bit of a chuckle when I saw myself on there today, but I really doubt that I will ever play because L4D will only ever be 4v4, as my roster is quite huge.

TF2 Highlander

October 23, 2008

What is Highlander, anyway? It is competition at its finest- 9v9 matches of TF2 where each person must play a different class.

I play as a part of “Stacked Team” in TWL. I am so happy that I finally got to play my first match last Sunday. Highlander hasn’t gotten very big in North America, so you have to challenge teams in order to schedule matches.

It is a lot more fun to play in this league, because it is far less serious than a real match, and has more teamwork than your average pub. It is really hilarious to see so many people running around in a match! It’s a bit tough trying to buff everyone up before heading outside the gates, but I felt a lot safer playing medic with the amount of people around me, and having a lot of people that I could run to.

I’m excited to play more Highlander matches! Europe really knows where it’s at; it is all the rage over there. Let’s get some more teams started here; the more competition, the better!

Match tonight, w00t!
