The Quacksgiving Newbie Tournament!

Recommended Posts

Announcing the Quacksgiving Newbie Tournament, a unofficial Friendship is Gaming Thanksgiving tournament geared towards getting people's feet wet into competitive TF2, and just having fun. It will be a two day event on the 25th and 26th of November from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm Eastern time (subject to change due to server limitations). There are no entry requirements but there will be restrictions on those with prior competitive TF2 experience.


The format and prized will be announced later, depending on player population. Formats will range from 2v2 (ultiduo) to 9v9 (highlander), depending on how many players, to maintain brevity, all teams will play a maximum of three matches.

The minimum Prize pool will be a minimum of 10 TF2 Keys but will increase from donations, larger formats, and larger player interest.

Experienced players will only be able to play on teams of limited experience and are encouraged to act as the mentor, leader and maincaller.

All players must post in this thread or otherwise contact Duck directly to be confirmed.


  • All players must conduct themselves in a decent and sportsmanlike manner and will not spam, threaten, or harass any other participant. This rule will be enforced.
  • All players must be reviewed before joining and any prior competitive TF2 experience must be declared, regardless of time, league, or format.
  • Main accounts only
  • POV's must be recorded for all matches, failure to do so may result in a forfeit. If you need help just ask in this thread.
  • Teams will be assigned
  • All matches must be started within 15 minutes of the assigned start time.
  • Sub players are to be approved and treated like normal players
  • We will be using the appropriate global 6v6 and UGC 9v9 whitelists
  • Do not apply unless if you can play reasonably well on a NA server, probably Chicago or Dallas

Due to the brief nature of the competition, the main punishments will be warnings, removal from the tournament, and complete forfeiture of the team.

If you would like to join, post in this Google form with your Steam account, and UGC or ETFL accounts if relevant.

Reply here with any questions.

All information here is subject to change, this is our first time doing this so please be patient about any hiccups.

I wouldn't mind participating. But I've nearly accumulated 6,000 hours in TF2 and have been an active Team Fortress player for nearly 20 years, starting when it was a freeware mod for Quake. I definitely don't qualify as a "newbie" and would probably just ruin the experience for newer players.

So I'll say this instead, hope those of you who do attend have an incredible time!
