Euro FNF - TF2 - 29-08-2009 - No PAX for us edition



Welcome to another edition of The European FNF... The place to be on a friday night. (Unless you go out) There is a chance I might not be around this time, if this happens I'll leave you in the capable hands of Budr or Dave. Also note that I'm changing the time of FNF to 19:00 UTC because I have found 18:00 UTC to be very hard to work with personally and I think the British people wouldn't mind starting a little later either. Anyway, let's give the work week a good goodbye with a crit rocket up its arse...

* cp_medieval_siege - A gravel pit A/D map set in a medieval castle... Looks nice...
* cp_inner_city_v3 - Minimal looking map but it seems the author has changed a lot based on feedback.
* cp_dogblu_b3 - The classic beach siege map but then in tf2...

* arena_starship_b2 - Caffeine made the first custom arena map based on starships middle point, it played well during the initials playtests.

Euro FNF - TF2 - 08-08-2008 - Triple eight edition



Welcome to another edition of Euro FNF! Your host of this evening will be ainmosni!!! We have four fun looking maps on the schedule for tonight which we hope you'll enjoy.

The crit rocketing will continue until morale improves.
- The Management

cp_freight_b3 - A sideproject from the maker of cp_steel which gets a lot of good feedback and looks quite good, this one could be quite fun. (Yes this was on the menu a few weeks ago but we never got to it back then.)
tc_atlantic_b3 - ZOMG, another custom tc map and it looks gorgeous!
cp_boulder_v1 - cp_mof went final and we want to see that final product off course, it's a map in the trend of dustbowl so it'll probably be good.
cp_japan_v2 - To fit with cp_egypt last week, here is cp_japan... A very nice looking cp map.

European FNF - Team Fortress 2 - Variety is the Spice of Life Edition



Another Friday, another FNF. This time I'll be here instead of getting totally shitfaced somewhere in the city...

We have a nice varied selection of maps today, all of them look very promising and I'm very curious to see how they will play

The custom maps of today will be:

dom_canalzone_b3 - The second beta of this map was already played in the US TFT and got a lot of positive reactions, now it's time for b3. <3 vilepickle.
tc_spectre - OMGWTFBBQ: A custom tc map... And it looks pretty sweet as well. Let's hope this won't go all hydro on us.
ctf_omega_redux - A very nice looking CTF map, getting a lot of good feedback as well.

The important information:

Map Pack - This has been updated with all the custom maps we play except the new ones linked above, so download it to save yourself from lots of downloading.

Euro FNF - Team Fortress 2: Insomnia is playing real life fps edition.


TF2: The BRB Team from Fail Medic on Vimeo.

Video made by Fail (<3 <3 <3)

As I'll be playing an FPS in real life (paintball) it'll be up to our friendly brit Budr to run the show. But I have all faith that this limey bastard will make it a fun night and I might pop in later if I don't get home too late.

Todays custom maps are all cp maps.

cp_freight_b3 - A sideproject from the maker of cp_steel which gets a lot of good feedback and looks quite good, this one could be quite fun.
cp_bedrooms3 - This map looks good and has its own style, it also gets a lot of a good feedback. TF2 invades your bedroom!
cp_egypt_v2 - A gorgeous egypt style map, the way this map looks warrants a try...

European FNF - Team Fortress 2 - I'm back edition


(Thanks for the pic bloodylip)


After last weeks epic party weekend I'm staying home tonight and ready for another awesome EuroFNF.

I'm still not confident to lock the server up but so far we've been having fun anyway, especially because there are enough admins around.

The custom maps of today will be:

cp_cowpath_b3 - This is a map inspired by warpath... It looks great and hopefully plays great as well.
ctf_face_45 - A port of my favourite map in Unreal Tournament, hopefully it will be as much fun in TF2.

The important information:

European FNF - Team Fortress 2 - Maps Galore edition



And another friday is upon us, this will be just another fun Euro FNF with 3 nice looking maps.

I don't think we'll have enough regulars tonight but we're getting ever closer to locking stuff up.

We have 3 new custom maps today:

pl_cave - This is an update of a map which had much potential when we played it. Back then it only had one stage but now it has 3, let's see how it plays.
ctf_escherhaus - A map inspired by the surrealist M.C. Escher. It looks great and Escher maps used to be a favorite of mine in the old UT.
cp_rocketball - A map recommended by Budr which seems it will make the game feel a little more Counterstrike-ish with it's permanent death thing. I hope this will work out.

Euro FNF - Team Fortress 2: Whores need to learn patience edition



Ah yes, it's the day after the big Pyro update and the first chance most Europeans get a chance to really try it out. Because we don't want to have one eternal fiery hell for the entire FNF we'll whore on the European server when the US FNF starts so that the people who don't want to whore have a place to continue playing as well.

Hopefully we'll have enough regulars this night that I can actually lock the server with a password and do some fun pick ups and other stuff!

The custom map of today will be cp_redstone - This is from the same maker as cp_fastlane which I personally like so far, so let's see how his other map will play.

Euro FNF - Team Fortress 2: Europeans sappin your sentries edition.





Come one, come all to the first ever European Team Fortress 2 Friday Night Fights.

Because this is the first European FNF and I don't know how many people will join I won't be putting a password on the server unless a lot of people say they'll be there and would prefer it passworded.

Like Caffeine, I also will be throwing some custom maps in the mix every week and see which ones we like.

This weeks maps will be:

pl_dustbowl_b3 (I know the US server has done this one already but I haven't had a chance to play it yet and it looks like a pretty fun map to start with)
cp_2skyscraper_b3 (This looks fun and is quite high rated on fpsbanana so let's see how it plays!)
