Default SOE pwns Valve!

http://www.n4g.com/dev/News-191927.aspx

So valve challanged Sony Online Entertainment to a match of TF2... Sony ended up winning 6-0, and yes the match was played on the PC so no home system advantage.

SOE probably plays TF2 more than their own games. If I worked for Valve I would feel honored.

Goldrush rocks

And 6-0 could just be that SOE ran through and won the rounds twice while blocking Valve on the first level once. Still, not being able to cap a single point on Goldrush == teh suck.
