Season 26 powered by Tt eSPORTS: Provisional Tiers

In case you do not find your team in this list, you were likely removed because you had between 1 and 5 players, in this case you have to gather 6 players in your roster and sign up for Season 26 again or you changed your name during signup process, just check for an old team name. We will try and get as many teams into the season as possible before week 1 starts. This is also a reminder that we will leave the signups open until the start of week 3 for late signups.

TF2 Rewind LAN is coming this weekend!

Date January 20, 2017

On Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd, the first major international LAN on American soil will be played, at the eSports Arena in California. Representing Europe is the legendary UnitedKingdom Se7en, who will be looking to be the first TF2 team to be crowned world champions twice in the space of a year. They are the same core as the Crowns team that conquered i58 only a few months ago, with the inclusions of Denmark Thalash (as per season 25), Sweden alle and Finland amppis. With the Street Hoops team of NA recently weakened, with star demoman Duwatna out with appendicitis, can se7en and Jasmine Tea ensure #thirdplaceb4nny and a non-NA final at an NA LAN? Or will we see the FROYO – se7en Grand final people have been anticipating since 2015? Familiar faces and new for European fans await, and eternal bragging rights could be won for EU with victory at this huge LAN. Tune in to eSportsArena to watch all the action go down with the best talent, both in-game and out of it, that TF2 has to offer. This could be emotional – the tournament will not disappoint.

The first match will be Jasmine Tea vs Meat Market at 19:00 CET, closely followed two hours later with se7en’s first game, against NA fan’s favorite team, Street Hoops eSports. Tune in for this historic LAN to tell the gaming world, from the main stage, that WE ARE HERE.
