10 of NA's best TF2 players are coming together to try out Arena:Respawn. In a competitive setting A:R is played 5v5 with class limit 1 and an open white list. Maps are 20 minutes long with rounds in progress allowed to finish at the end of that timer. In addition to that, at the start of each map each team bans a class. The ban applies to both teams.
Arena:Respawn is a spin on traditional Arena with players being able to respawn their teams through capturing the point. Players defending a point they own marks the player for death in order to punish teams attempting to camp the point. When the point is captured a 60 second timer is started, after which the team that owned the point can re-capture to end the round. This is to combat cloak and dagger spies hiding in corners and to promote action.
We will be playing 3 maps for the invite pug. Captain / player pick format is still undecided. Please voice your opinion.

Here we are...the end of the IM playoffs. A long road and long journey, and it all comes down to cp_process_final (second map pending if Blockback wins). Who will take it all and move up to Invite? Join us with yuki, and london calling!, with truktruk on the camera.
At the start of Season 19, I would have had you sectioned if this was your prediction for the 3rd vs 4th seed. Granted, there is a sizeable gap between E-SHOCK ESPORTS and the top 3 - and yes, there are only 2 points separating them from the 6th seed - but that makes this no less of a tense match. These fresh francophones, serendipitously promoted into the Premiership Division, have landed on their feet and proved that they deserved the slot. On the other side of the fixture, Ze Knutsson Rollerbladers have the 2nd place playoff spot firmly in their sights, and it's just inches out of their grasp. They cannot afford to drop any points if they want to beat LBC and claim that important advantageous position - tonight is the biggest test facing them for the rest of Season 19. On one side, a Scandinavian team desperate not to squander their hard work thus far...on the other, a plucky upcoming team with the taste of victory, blood and baguette on their lips. They're hungry for more.
