Flittzy, the impressive songsmith of TF2 is here with us to treat your eardrums. You may recognise him from such iconic tunes as “Flames” and “Edgy Scout Main“.

There seem to be a big disconnect in the TF2 community, where a large portion of community members only relies on a single source of news (e.g. Reddit / community forum / Steam workshop or the TF2 blog alone). I cannot stress enough; to get most out of the TF2 community: try to join Twitter.

A lot of (big) YouTubers and SFM artists are active on Twitter, and are most of the time very approachable! If you want to get your content (let it be videos, art or whatever) exposed; post it on Twitter. Put some effort into your account: create or commission yourself an Avatar and handle your Twitter account as an artwork, that is being worked on 24/7. Check it once a day and built a follower list of things that you like!

To get you started on Twitter, I recommend you follow these accounts:

check my following list for a gross part of TF2 YouTubers and artists.

And this is just a shot in the wild! If you have any recommendations, be sure to post them below.

Tonight version 1.3.2 of teamwork.tf was released with the following updates:

  • The providers page has been updated. It provides a better overview and filters to search for server communities.
  • Community server providers now validate their servers based on their hostname, which is much easier and helps less technical people to get their community represented.
  • Community quickplay now scans every 5 minutes instead of 10 (thanks to the Patreons and our mascot Dave).
  • Webpages with gameserver information automatically update if the server scanner has completed a new scan.
  • New overview called map explorer which provides an overview of which maps are currently being played in community servers.
  • Added new news sources, such as OzFortress, TFCLeague, RNG Podcast and the FuckYeah tumblr. Also updated the visual styling of the news.
  • Important news is now directly posted onto Discord and/or Twitter.
  • Cleaned up back-end code and updated all frameworks in preparation of the oncoming YouTuber section.

We caught up with two such hardballs, Clayface and The Gentlemann’s Fedora, who have taken hand to face combat into a whole other level by creating the National Heavy Boxing League.

Valve have fiddled with the back end, upgrading and updating TF2 to the very latest SDK; 2013. This may seem like nothing to the layman but it means a great deal. For one thing, it broke Source Mod and for another it broke Macs. So there’s that going for it. Altogether it’s a very important step in the development of TF2, to bring it up to date smartly and allow […]

So a few weeks before launch I posted this:

https://twitter.com/TF2teamwork/status/837244305039306752

And well, 2 days after launch the map alone already has reached 50.000 views! It's great to see the new website is so popular, but even with the great Patreon support we cannot afford a 500,- a month for the map alone. That's why I've just switched the map to Google Maps version, which might looks a bit different (Ctrl + F5 if it doesn't load directly). Anyway, this has flexible pricing, which is affordable.

Another disaster averted!
