Post-Event Notes:
Thank you for stopping by to watch our segment and once again show that the community can come together to raise money for a great cause!
Special thanks to ridge tev firestabber Gentle Puppet JoinedSenses Xbmann & Nolem for joining us behind the scenes and providing their expertise to make the segment even better. And of course thanks to TFConnect for having us again this year. Appreciate you all!
If you missed it watch the vod here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1675326249?t=3h27m1s

PvP Servers:
If you weren't around for the event, you may have missed that we're remaking the Hightower servers into rotational PvP Servers, running maps that have been edited so jumping feel less restrictive. For those that have grown accustomed to the Hightower map, the servers will default to Hightower on server start-up, and can be rtv'd.
We hope you'll come on and try how the maps play, and report any feedback you may have in the new PvP Discord: https://discord.gg/CTvBmDdUD3
Here’s a Teaser video: https://youtu.be/WcL0qBTztLI
Credit to Gentle Puppet for the map work!

Mapping Discord:
We’ve created a dedicated discord for Jump Mapping, if you would like to learn how to map or be around to answer questions aspiring mappers may have we’d love to have you, there’s already a lot of resources there for you to delve into- or you can contribute your own!
Note that we're still working on it, more will come later. Feel free to give us suggestions and ideas.

PayPal Donations:
After PayPal updating their policies we lost access to our old PayPal, luckily no funds were lost. We've now made a new one, and PayPal donations are an option again!
