    HackFortress HYBRID MODE

    What is HackFortress
    HackFortress is a unique CTF that smashes together the first person shooter Team Fortress 2 with a jeopardy
    style CTF. Two teams play at a time, gamers battling each other in TF2 while hackers are busy solving puzzles
    in categories like web app security, network security, social engineering, reverse engineering, lock picking and
    some unique challenges completely unrelated to hacking. Teams are made up of 6 TF2 players and 4 hackers,
    teams are permitted one runner to help communication between gamers and hackers.

    What is HYBRID MODE
    Due to the continuing biological nightmare that is covid-19 HackFortress has entered HYBRID MODE.
    Its still the same blend of Team Fortress 2, hacking, and shenanigans that you know and we assume
    love, but now with more cloud.

    How is this different than SAFE MODE
    SAFE MODE was completely online, during HYBRID MODE we will be onsite, megaphone in hand,
    searching for the ultimate team of hackers and gamers. Players will be able to compete either onsite
    or remote.

    How will HYBRID MODE work
    In order to allow all players to compete, we're keeping all of our infrastructure in the cloud, remote players
    will be able to access the game server and puzzles over the internet, onsite players will be able to use
    the official HackFortress wifi to get internet access. Due to virus related concerns gaming will function a little
    differently this year. WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING LAPTOPS, YOU MUST BRING A LAPTOP WITH TF2
    ALREADY INSTALLED
    .

    How many teams will there be
    We're starting with 4 teams, depending on how many people sign up we'll add more as needed

    What do I need to play
    Hackers:
    Laptop with wifi
    Lockpicks (not required but someone on the team should have them)
    Headset (not required but makes communication easier)

    Gamers:
    Laptop with wifi and TF2 already installed (its a free game)
    Whatever mouse and keyboard you want to bring for gaming
    Headset
