Stats Contest #13 + #15 – Win Keys!

Posted on: October 11th, 2014 by The Jib

Hey Hey, Jib here.. With some updates on the latest Newbs Contest

In September we trialed our new stats contest, awarding 5 players with honorz and their choice of prize from my backpack.

Here are the winners for September:

Top Points: Arthur Digby Sellers 
Time Played: Lindorm 
Dominations: The Infamous Mr. A 
Godlikes: Dam dude 
Deaths: [N] BlueArmadillo 


Last month we kept the stats on #15 plr_hightower. This month we are combining #13 koth_harvest with #15′s plr_hightower stats for the contest (trial basis).

We’re also upping the prize to a KEY (or equal value) for each winner. (You can only win one category)

How to win this month?

Most Kills
Most Kills with Caber (the holy grail)
Time Played
Most Revenges

Stats run from 10/1/14 to 10/31/14. The month is still young, so get out there and kill some mofoz!

Server #15 September Stats Contest!

Posted on: September 2nd, 2014 by Obey

As you may have read on the forums here and here, admin |N| Jib is hosting a Stats Contest on server #15, which is a fast respawn 24/7 Hightower payload race server! You can win prizes and honorz for being the top ranked player at the end of the month, having the most dominations, and more!


This contest will also help push usage of this all-Hightower-all-the-time server.  The following recent changes were also applied:

  1. Engineer sentries are disabled (destroyed when built) when the active player count is less than six players.
  2. Engineer mini-sentries are disabled when the active player count is less than sixteen players. When trying to repopulate a server, playing against sentries without a team tends to cause people to give up and leave the server.
  3. Server #15 is now its own category on our HLStats page.
  4. “Fast respawn” should mean a five-second respawn.
  5. Stats were reset on August 30th.  The contest runs through the end of September.
  6. Prizes! We’ll be giving away prizes for: Most Points – Most Time Played – Dominations – Deaths – Godlikes (12+ killstreaks)

And hey, if you want to be a TF2Newbs admin, this is an opportunity to get involved!

(2nd Annual) Badass TF2 Pumpkin Contest Winners – And an announcement about NewbsMas

Posted on: November 5th, 2009 by octo dhd

As promised I’m posting the results of the 2nd Annual TF2 Newbs Pumpkin Carving Contest – This year we had 7 entries which is down from last year, but the entries were VERY good. I spent a long time evaluating the Pumpkins trying to decide who should win. I decided that in order to reward those who put the time and the dedication into making a pumpkin and submitting them that I would expand the prizes! So instead of one copy of l4d2 I gave away 3 copies! I had Jib send one to each of the three ‘winning’ pumpkins. The final odds of winning a grand prize in this contest ended up being a 3/7 which means that 42% of the entries won a copy of l4d2! You just can’t beat TF2Newbs odds.

A big thank you goes out to Control Point for featuring our little contest on their podcast, I think its really kicked things up a notch – Thanks again!

All people who participated won 1 years worth of reserve on the Newbs servers, a forum honorz (will be added tomorrow hopefully), and 1 year of !hatme access (enables you to wear any classes hat). If you participated and want the Newbs server rewards contact me on steam, most of the participants I couldn’t find in the stats db under their entry name so I don’t know their steamid :) I can be reached @

I would like to take this chance to announce the next Newbs Contest… (drum roll) The next contest is the – Newbs Team Fortess 2 Christmas and other Winter Celebrations Contest. All entries will be TF2 and winter solstice themed. Entries can be winter decorations, confections, other food stuffs, songs, snow sculptures, or any other creative work. I will be announcing further details very shortly. If you want to keep track of the latest Christmas contest news please join I’m not certain on the prizes yet (looking for some sponsors) but I promise that it will be worth your time :)

Back to the Pumpkins…..

The participants (in alphabetical order) -

TF2 Newbs Logo Contest Vote!

Posted on: October 29th, 2008 by Newbs Staff

You have been solicited to make a new TF2 Newbs logo.. I tempted you with everlasting fame, karma, and a reserved slot. This much I can give you.. But wait that’s not all folks! For the extensive participation, I’ll be awarding a special honorz icon to the top 3 entries!

How does this work? I’ll tell you. The anonymity of it all is pretty shot because you can just look at who posted the pics in the thread : ) so rather than making some funky number system to keep this from being a popularity contest.. We’ll just go on the honorz system. (HA.) No really. You guys seem to be pretty non partial and since all the people who posted stuff are badass as it is, it shouldn’t be a problem.

Important: Server changes/Koans Owns

Posted on: September 24th, 2008 by Newbs Staff


WHOA. lotta stuff to cover here. If you havn’t noticed yet theres a lot of big changes coming through with the servers. I’ve been patiently waiting for the situation to fall into place as to not prematurely give the wrong information. Here’s the skinny.. The original servers 2fort #2, 2fort #3, the payload server, and the scrim/rotation server are going to be going away. Deep breath.. Here are the new servers that are replacing them.

24/7 2fort (Octo-land) #4
24/7 2fort (Koans Kingdom) #5
Rotation 1 (Koans Kingdom) #6

A lot of people are seeing better latency, and smoother graphics on these servers. These are machines specifically designed to run TF and are well routed to service nation wide. Previously we did not pay for our servers. Those days are gone : ) We are working on a flexible donation structure to insure the servers stay up. (They cost money!) As the donation money comes in, we’ll be adding additional game servers to meet the needs of the community.

What does this mean to you? Not many changes will be coming about. New ip addresses.. So make sure to favorite the new servers. Same awsh0me admins, stats (once we do the full transfer over), stats free sundays, 12 on 12 heavy melee for no reason battles, and little mods like health and ammo when you capture. If you’re playing on the new servers it’s stats free until October 1st, which is when the new period will start. For the time being we’ll have a rotation server rather than a payload server. There was a big response to the rotation server and right now we only have funds for 3 servers so we’re trying a rotation. If you love the payload like many people do, donate! I’m sure you’ve forked over a few dollars for xbox live or.. WoW *gasp* in your day.. And TF2 is way beyond that stuff. Even if its just a few dollars, it all goes towards getting the servers running for you to play on! Reserved Slots! Think about all the time you wait in cue on auto join, and how much happier you would be making the best of your time available to get right on the servers!

Join the Steam Group! This is a good way to stay in touch with us, and make this transition as smooth as possible.


Now onto other cool things..
Koansrus has been a huge contributor to the community. Adming the servers, running contests.. Well koans stepped up big time with some donations and is currently funding 2 of the new servers (koans kingdom respectively). How do you thank somebody for being such a badass? Well.. a honorz in their honor.

if you see koans. Thank him for helping the community stay strong, and check out his new zombie mod.. it’s pretty fun : )
