Thanks for all the Facebook likes

So most of you know we’re got twitter, YouTube and Facebook pages and we do what we can to keep them updated with TF2 type of things. What you may have missed though is that we’re just reached the milestone of 1000 likes on Facebook! This is kind of a big deal for us since we only decided to get into fb properly a while ago and besides everyone likes to be liked. Anyway, by happy co-incidence we’re just back from the Insomnia LAN at Telford (you may have seen our YouTube coverage). We were encouraging the comp players and casters to sign our massive (they are about 2m high) door posters. For you guys this means we’re giving away 100 unique quality Lo-Fi Longwaves and...

KritzKast #235: i49

Multiplay’s Insomnia events earn their name. i49 has left us all in need of a damn good sleep.As always we celebrated the event with a special episode featuring some of the stars of the show. Our editing space was given to us by our friends over at UKCS.We have to thank the newest additions to our team, Comedian and Skyride who produced some of the best coverage including the epic “Land of the Brave” ad-hoc chroma-key video.

KritzKast #234: Better than Pipeline

Hello, my name is Valve and I’m a TF2 updateaholic. It has been 25 days since my last update and I’m getting the shakes. I’ve started to get my young students to push out videos on their “pipeline” to satisfy my urges by proxy. One with Tom Bui, yes that Tom Bui, another with Michael Abrash but they sort of did a rush half-life, sorry half-assed job and I don’t feel fulfilled. Please help.Reddit was the staging point of a three way jump-off between Mr Muselk, tomasazz and Deep4000 from spawn to spawn in Badwater. Muselk takes the win with 7.4 seconds and earns himself our player of the week (and vint. Lo-Fi). The guys over at No Bullcrits have come up...

KritzKast #222: Toppling Toys

Its indigogo all the way this week with both US and Australia/New Zealand reaching their targets to bring teams to i49. While we’re on the topic of the UK’s biggest LAN party, someone is looking to set their friend up for a blind date there. Apparently she’s slim, about 5’6″ and into gaming. No words on how old she is but she is from Wales so take that into consideration before you apply.eXtv are back with their Top10 videos. This will have been the first for quite some months. From the same video factory there’s a round up of the 2nd hundred Moments of Glory. Watch out for the Lo-Fi toting pyro at the end. There have been updates of course as well, but...

KritzKast @ i46 – TF2 Steps

Tempest
The tradition of TF2 players enjoying themselves on the steps of the Telford International Centre continues into i46. Ruskeydoo forces a man to walk a line then instigates a game of gay chicken with VanillaTV’s Admirable. What a cad!...

Kritzkast @ i46 – CM Storm

Tempest
After the great chat we had with them last year, how could I not go back and talk to Cooler Master’s Chris Cough at the Multiplay’s i46 event. I won a hat, so it would be rude of me not to stay to chat about their keyboards, mice and other performance gear. There’s also a sneak look at an ambidextrous mouse (one for the lefties!)...
