Team Fortress 2


Community Clash is coming to North America! EssentialsTF is hosting an online TF2 tournament on the 8th & 9th of May, with a prize pool of $2,400 up for grabs! Partnering with DreamHack, the tournament will feature an open bracket from which teams can progress to compete against the best teams in the world for their chance at glory.


If you're new to competitive or don't have a lot of experience, try their Newcomer Clash! The smaller newcomer tournament is solely for new players to try competitive for their chance at a $90 prize pool.


The event begins on Saturday, May 8th, at 13:00 EDT, and will feature the group stages. Sunday, May 9th, will include the elimination playoffs starting at 13:30 EDT, leading to the grand finals where a champion will be crowned!


Signups for both the main and newcomer tournaments will end on Thursday, May 6th, at 18:00 EDT. You can watch the tournament live on the EssentialsTF Twitch channel, and you can get more information about the event, such as the full schedule, on Clash.TF.

What’s better than shooting mercenaries in the face? Cream donuts? No! Insane riches? You’ve gotta be kidding me. A feeling better than killing mercenaries in cold blood is killing ROBOTS in UBER-filled revenge!

Spring is on its way and you know what that means: Spring cleaning, disposing of your winter ramen collection, and warmer weather flooding your basement with melted snow. Well, throw that to-do list into your overflowing dumpsters because there’s a new April Fools Mann vs Machine tour in town that’s served like heated leftovers fresh out of the microwave!


Operation Starched Silliness is an April Fools MvM charity tour brought to you by Tindall Berry that pits the Mercs against a meme-fueled robotic rampage. Complete all the waves in this intermediate-difficulty community tour and earn an in-game medal! Event servers are available worldwide in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania.


In addition to waging a war against the memes, there is also a charity fundraising campaign for Doctors Without Borders to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations of $5 USD or above will earn an in-game donor medal! Item donations will also be accepted. Click here for instructions on how to donate.


Have fun, but don't delay, or else the meme machines will conquer the world by April 18th, 2021!
