Intruder

Community Spotlight and more!

Firstly we would like to congratulate team Men With Excellent Hats for winning the Infiltration Inc. community tournament! They defeated Team Raven Shield 2-0 last weekend. It's well deserved, they have been recognized by the community for their strong preparation and use of teamwork throughout the competition. Men With Excellent Hats member Granate is worthy of special accolades for his heroics in a couple particular rounds, overcoming early 1v3 disadvantages for his team. Thanks to all of the participants, teams, casters and streamers for making it possible!

With the holidays and the end of 2014 coming up we'd like to showcase some of the cool stuff going on within the Intruder community. Whether you're new to the game or just haven't spent much time on the forums themselves, here are some fun, and useful, threads to check out. There's the “Introduce yourself thread” which is a great starting place to meet some nice folks. If you're looking to chat, make sure to check out the IRC as well, it's friendly and welcoming to newcomers. Also for newcomers is a wonderful thread created by user Lucien with beginner tips. It has everything from route strategies to vocabulary used by teammates in the game. Another good thread to get game tips is “Post your role” which gives a sense of the different strategies one can take in a round.

If you would like to watch Intruder videos or streams, or if you want to promote your own channels there's a thread for that too over here. Once you're feeling creative, head over to the haiku thread and share your poetic prowess. Finally, we'll have a new patch coming out soon. Hopefully within the month, so make sure to check the site for upcoming patch notes. Happy holidays!

Intruder Tournament Super Final - the Rematch

Don't miss the Intruder Tournament final match today at 5EST, 10GMT! http://twitch.tv/IntruderTournaments

This weekend will see the finale of Infiltration Inc., Intruder's 3v3 community tournament. It's been a long road in this double elimination tourny, with the first matches having been played at the end of September. Thirteen teams signed up, and the two that stand at the end of the bracket are Team Raven Shield and Men with Excellent Hats. Let's take a closer look at the teams themselves and how they've progressed.

In the case of Team Raven Shield, they've had numerous close matches, many of which were saved with come from behind victories. With that challenge they've become attuned to those pressure situations. I briefly spoke with LavaTramp, one of the team's members who stated, “It's been a nice opportunity to play some serious, competitive matches, you really get to develop team specific tactics.” When asked about Men With Excellent Hats and their use of code words throughout the tournament he said, “The 3d voice chat really gives people the opportunity to mess with each other.” I spoke with fellow teammate R3vo who had this to add, “I found out if I take the match too seriously I over think it and end up playing terribly. (It's) better just to take each match as a normal round.”

As for Men with Excellent Hats, it's been a different story. They are undefeated in the tournament, which includes putting Team Raven Shield in the loser bracket, so they are the favorites going into the final. The key to their success thus far has been the development of new code words during the match, to throw off other teams if they watch their matches as well as the enemy team they're playing against. They're said to be taking the competition seriously and that's clearly worked for them so far.

My favorite aspect of this tournament is how it has garnered community interaction, not just between Superboss and the players, but between the players themselves. Teams scheduled their own matches with each other, and have helped make this tournament what it is. Thanks to all the players who participated, we hope you had a blast!

For those who haven't been keeping up with the tournament, there are ample resources to get caught up. You can visit the YouTube channel* which has all of the matches recorded and uploaded with commentary. The final itself will take place Saturday, December 6th and will be streamed on the Twitch page here*. Here's to a great finale of a successful tournament!
