    Hello I am Iceh I have a few good seasons of comp TF2 I wanted to start this thread so people can post their questions from the basics like how do I find a team, to when do comp players practice and when are matches? To more advance like what kind of game modes should I play to get better? We can even talk about what are good TF2 channels or videos to watch to learn more on my own time. I will post slowly to this answers to questions and I will answer any questions asked right away instead of waiting until I get there.

    Q: When are matches?
    A: Monday nights at 9:30pm est *are the default time, the time can be changed to Tuesday, or the Sunday before.*

    Q: What map types should I play?
    A: ALL!!! No one map type is better then the others, the most common types are payload and 5CP *control point*.

    Q: What video's should I watch?
    A: Fatmop does shoutcasts where he is sort of like a TF2 announcer watch him to see plays but nothing beats practice.

    Q: Where can I get a feel for a laid back version of comp?
    A: Try a lobby for starters. Found here ---> www.tf2lobby.com

    Q: Can I join you *Iceh* in a lobby?
    A: I don't usually lobby I PUG *pick-up-game* which is a higher level of lobby, I will lobby with you if you want and you can lobby with other VF4 comp players.

    Q: What is highlander?
    A: 9v9 match mod with weapon restricts and 1 of each class.

    Q: Can I join your highlander team?
    A: In short no sorry. Its not that I don't want you on or think you might not or might be ready, I do not do the tryouts for my highlander team.

    Q: What is 6s?
    A: 2 scouts, 2 soldiers, 1 demo, 1 medic. 1 soldier is known as the pocket and is the medic's main go to for protection. The other is called the roamer who as the name suggests roams.
