My lurching attempt to revitalise our YouTube channel brought with it the realisation that creating a video-a-week after editing a podcast-a-week is a lot of additional work. So I did the traditional YouTube thing; I just stopped, and didn’t tell anyone. That’s a really lousy *out* and has weighed heavy on my mind ever since.

The Blapature Co. Summer Jam is a 24 Hour Team Fortress 2 charity livestream, featuring a host of personalities from the TF community. Their previous charity livestream raised over $800 for Child's Play, and their work with Rally Call has raised over £4000 for International Animal Rescue. This past weekend, Blapature Co. supported Child's Play again, with a donation target of $2000, which they have absolutely blown away! But don't worry if you missed it! There's still time to donate and show your support. Click here to do just that and here to check out Blapature Co.'s Twitch channel.

It took a while, but we're back with a new website! This update involves around both the functionality aspect as well as the organisation behind the scenes.

New functions

  • The "Yellow Pages of TF2 " returned in the form of "Jarate Pages":
    • Explore and watch videos from all kind of TF2 YouTube Creators.
    • Integration with competitive medals and unusuals.
    • Gameserver support (creators can add their own server to their profile).
  • Updated Community Quickplay:
    • SourceCBL and Roll The Dice integration (indication flags).
    • Searching for a specific map, will now also show related maps that are being played on.
    • Overall style update.
  • Released map-statistics:
    • The website tracks all maps that are running on gameservers (empty/full/Valve/Community gameservers: everything).
    • View aggregated information about ALL maps on the website (Reviewed by UEAKCrash).
  • News
    • Increased polling rate, news will be added faster.
    • Announcing Global Radio Network: A discord bot which automatically posts based on your settings (can be found in your user settings).
    • Added: SourceCBL and Valve News Network to the news section.
  • Updated Credits page to include all the artist/SFMers that worked on the website.

Organisational changes

  • NyanZak will join our team as "Community Manager", to help us accomodate the extra organisational challenges ahead.
  • Updated Patreon goals / tiers to reflect future projects/goals.
  • We will also start representing the casual and community side of TF2 towards Valve, communicating feedback towards Valve on regular intervals. We already had regular contact moments to discuss the current server browser and community side of TF2. Valve employees now seem to visit our website (quickplay/statistics) on a regular basis.
  • More extensive affilitions with websites such as SourceCBL and user groups such as "The Uprising YouTubers" to stimulate the community.

Future plans

  • Improve Community Quickplay - We received a lot of usefull feedback on what can be done better. We will start incorporating those changes.
  • Proof of Concept projects such as "Story Mode" and "Meet Your Map". More information will follow soon (Valve time might apply here).

Any feedback is welcome! But just like Valve we need to prioritize certain things due to lack of time. If you like our work, don't forget to chip in a few bucks over on Patreon to support our cause!

Suspicions abound over an update to an application that may or may or not be a new version of TF2. Okay, it probably isn’t but you can’t blame me for getting excited. Although some of that is probably because I’ve got obla or flozzlm from ozfortress here.
