Season 19 powered by Tt eSPORTS: Rule Updates
With the new Premiership Playoffs schedule needing to follow a strict schedule, some rules are needed to ensure that the night runs smoothly.
1.10.8 Matches in the Premiership Playoffs must start within 15 minutes of the scheduled time
All matches in the Premiership Playoffs must have started within 15 minutes of the scheduled time, or Minor Warnings will be applied to the team/teams responsible. Please note Admin discretion is applied to each individual case.
A rule has been removed since the new playoff schedule deems it not needed.
1.10.6 Default Dates in Premiership Playoffs and Tiebreakers
All teams must submit 3 available days for a playoff match at least 2 days before the start of the match week (i.e. before Friday 23:59). If the days submitted by both teams overlap, the default date is issued to one of the overlapping days based on admin discretion. If the days submitted by teams do not overlap, the default date is issued to the day not submitted by either team.
The version of cp_logjam to be used in the season will now be cp_logjam_b9. We have spoken to map creator Hyce and there will not be an update unless there is a major problem in the Logjam Cup.
There has also been a change to the provisional unlock list for the season. The Buffalo Steak Sandvich has been removed from the allowed unlocks for Season 19. The complete list can be found on the Homepage. An overview of the whitelist can be seen here.
Unfortunately, many of the new taunts Valve added to the game are partner toggleable – similar to the High-Five taunt. To keep consistency within the whitelist we are forced to disable these taunts:
- Flippin’ Awesome
- Rock, Paper, Scissors
- Square Dance
Season 19 powered by Tt eSPORTS: Signups still OPEN!
Make sure to choose your desired division when signing up. If you created a new team or feel you can jump a division, feel free to apply for the division you believe you deserve you should be in. To prove you are capable of the division you applied for, we require you to submit screenshots of results from your recent practice matches or tournaments where you scored decent results against teams that play on the level you aim for. The quantity is not the most important factor in this case, it’s more of a helpful measure for us to figure out if your team will be able to keep up with the pace. There is no magical, minimum or maximum number of screenshots that you have to submit.
Please note that the success of your request also strongly depends on the free slots in the division you aim for. Established teams will be favoured over new teams or teams that request to jump a division. The screenshots have to be uploaded to an online image storage service (for example, you can use imgur or Dropbox). Keep in mind that if you opt for a zipped archives with tons of pictures attached to an e-mail, your application will be ignored. Keep it clean.
Also helpful for us, but not a must however, is adding who the opposing team is in each screenshot (and maybe even the division they played in the last time). That makes it easier for us, because sometimes it can be quite hard (especially in the lower divisions) to figure out who the teams in the screenshots are.
If you are applying for Division 6 (which is our entry division), you do not have to provide any proof that you are capable of playing at that level. This only applies to Division 5 or higher.
Please send your application to email@example.com. The division assignment request has to include the following information in order to be considered. Incomplete applications will be ignored!
- Do not use HTML in your e-mail. If you want to add a link, just paste the link in the e-mail as you would enter it in your browser.
- Team name
- Team link on ETF2L.org
- Division you apply for
- Link to the online photo album
- Reasons why your team deserves to be placed in the division you applied for (optional)
Edit: Applying sooner than later is recommended, signing up on e.g. Tuesday might not guarantee you a spot in Season 19 (despite being in time technically), since we can only fit in teams in groups of eight.
