Newbie Mix S28 Team Drive Signup
What this drive is

In the team drive, you and 5 other new-to-ESEA players will get partnered up with an experienced mentor that will help guide you through the season. The mentor won’t be playing on the team, but will help you with everything from registering on ESEA, to finding your first scrims, to demo reviews, and everything in between. ESEA is the best experience you can currently have in TF2. You will have fun, meet new friends, and improve at a relatively rapid pace.

Important information about ESEA and the drive
  • ESEA is a league, with seasons, which means joining is a temporary commitment. Ideally, all signups are already interested in competitive TF2, and are willing to play the 8 week season in June and July.
  • ESEA is always played at night, with teams playing/practicing within the general time window of 9:30 EST to 11:30 EST, sometimes slightly earlier.
  • While it varies from team to team, most teams play 5 days a week, Sunday through Thursday. We do our best to match you with people of similar schedules, but overall you should be able to play at least 4 days a week. If you can't, consider listing yourself as a subsitute instead of a starter.
  • While anyone can submit an application, the drive is catered to people newer to ESEA. If you are new to ESEA, chances are you will learn a lot, but not win very many games. If you are not new to ESEA, you will not join a playoff team by participating in this drive, so don’t expect to.
  • ESEA costs money. 2 months of premium for a non playoff team costs $14. If you can’t pay, we can try to pay for you, but there is no guarantee. The best way to secure a spot on a team is being able to pay for yourself.
  • Toxicity on these drive teams is not tolerated, and will result in you being replaced.
Rules about signing up
  • Do not post anything in this thread other than signup forms. Questions go in the questions thread here: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/na6v6newbiemix/discussions/0/1694917906665175329/
  • If you don’t have an ESEA page, don’t make one yet. Wait until you’re on a team, and have your coach make it with you.
  • Do not apply to classes you aren’t willing to play.
  • Try to use east coast times when telling us your availability, or at least specify.
  • Do not lie about your experience. If you lie, we will replace you.
  • If you want to play with friends, specify in the comments section of the application. Everyone involved in the group has to do this.
  • If you play on an existing team and wish to bring them into ESEA, skip the application format and just post that instead.
  • Subscribe to the following thread for updates about the drive. This is how you will learn if you got on a team: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/na6v6newbiemix/discussions/0/1694917906665181431/
  • Please remember to edit or delete your comment if something changes (availability, classes, ability to pay, ect).

Alias: Solemn Shadow

Classes (in order): Medic primarily, I'm not at all confident in my skills with other classes. If I had to play a different role I suppose I'd prefer pocket scout, then roaming scout.

Starter or Subsitute: Starter
Age: 18

Comments: I'm half decent mechanically, but I'm still new to the overall competitive scene and particularly map callouts - looking to improve there, as well as with general awareness and pressure. Still, hopefully this can be fun.

Comments: I’ve been all over the place these years in terms of teams I play for and classes I play but I would like to settle down and improve at one class. I believe ESEA would be the best place to learn and improve my game sense, aim, and teamwork.

Comments: I've been watching comp TF2 for a while now and just decided to hop on board to the 6s train. Looking to improve game sense, DM, and everything in between. I've only got 350~ hours into the game so I'm looking for a team/mentor that will teach me good habits for 6s as well as mind me not being as experienced. Would love to learn how to main call better as well. I would like to frag with 'x3noxide' (post #2).
