Team Fortress 2sdays: Change

Change brings opportunity

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Change is never easy. Nobody likes it and we all fear it (well, a lot of us do). Sometimes though, change is a necessary evil, something that many people won't realize until well after the change has already happened.

Luckily, some of that changed has already proved positive, as Spencer and Phil's Patreon campaign is well on its way to their 5-days-per-week goal. You people are amazing! So I say we all celebrate and go shoot each other in the face with big, cartoon weapons. Read on for a note about this week's events from TF2 community server admin Shadow.

First, a message from Shadow:

Over the weekend a lot happened around here at Dtoid. A lot of good people were let go, and it's always disappointing to see people get laid off. So instead of my usual quick blog, I'd like to instead give a shout out to all those who are no longer with Destructoid as of this weekend, and tell you lovely folks ways to help continue supporting them in their new endeavors. First and foremost would be Spencer and Phil starting up their new channel, just yesterday they have nearly raised enough to meet their funding goal. Conrad has left, although if you wish to still see more of his masterful mustache you can always catch him on his YouTube channel. While Joshua will be missed, you are more than welcome to support him in his writing over here. Harry can be followed on his Twitter, and Casey Baker will be hanging around in the comments and Cblogs. If I've missed anyone I do apologize. To everyone who was affected by layoffs this weekend, I honestly wish you all the best of luck in whatever you do next and if you ever want to blow off some steam, the TF2 server will always be open and more than happy to help.

Thanks Shadow. It's never easy watching people who we admire move on, regardless of the reasons. This was a very emotional weekend for a lot of us out there, and I think everything that has needed to be said, has been said. Before we get to the "what is TF2sday" section, I'd like to leave everyone with this quote:

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.

-Gilda Radner

So what is TF2sday?

Every Tuesday, a ton of folks from all across Destructoid hop on to the community server to play, talk, and shoot each other. It's usually a pretty crazy good time, and almost always involves various melee only matches between a handful of classes. So feel free to jump on and join us sometime!

New to TF2sday?

Don't worry, you're not alone! Any and all Dtoiders are welcome, so please don't be shy. If there is ever something wrong, or if you need to contact one of the server admins, please see below, all admin names and links to their Steam profile is listed.

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I feel terrible for not reading most of you beautiful people's blogs. Let's just say my passion is writing, not reading :s

People can debate GOTY all they want, but the real question is: D-Horse or Roach?

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

Down with that PAX Pox. Auhhhghghghhhh

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

Tortilla chips: The only food I know and love to betray me by deciding to flip to a bad angle and stab me in the gums.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.
ScreamAid avatarScreamAid
Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

In MGS5: The Phantom Pain, Solid Snake dies from lung cancer from all those years of smoking. #FakeSpoilers

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.
