Season 20 powered by Tt eSPORTS – Provisional Tiers

The signup count for Season 20 powered by Tt eSPORTS is 295 teams (we had to remove a couple of teams because they did not have enough players). The divisions may still be subject to change, there is no guarantee for anyone except those teams who earned promotion or stayed comfortably in the middle of their division.

Swiss System Changes: How to prepare for Week 1

The Swiss system has finally hit the main site, and we’re ready for teams to submit their available playing days for Week 1. Usually you would have more time to submit these, but it’s been a squeeze to get this out in time – so bear with it for Week 1 please!

Every team signed up for Season 20 (except for Premiership teams) needs to submit their available playing days by Saturday 23:59. You can do that through this page and selecting Edit Availability for your Season 20 team.

  • Select between 1 and 3 consecutive days through the dropdown.
  • Select a preferred time and time window for each day.
  • Click Save Changes! You’re done!

That’s all there is to it for now, this should get you started for Week 1. There will be a “Swiss System FAQ” page listed on the site sometime when the system is 100% completed and we can guide new players through in-depth.

Premiership Fixtures have been created, please schedule the games as you would normally with the Week starting this Sunday. (Because of the late notice, default dates will be delayed so it would be much appreciated to add the enemy leader asap and get it scheduled fast!)

Final Tiers will be released tomorrow night, and fixtures will be created on Saturday at 23:59! HYPE!

Season 20 powered by Tt eSPORTS – Fundraiser Showmatch

Season 20 powered by Tt eSPORTS – Fundraiser Showmatch

A celebration of quirky European ways like poor personal hygiene and crowd-sourced prize pots is on the cards with Ireland AdmirableUK Sideshow slipping their filthy fingers into your virtual wallets in the name of competitive Team Fortress 2. Every trick in the book will be used to part you from your money for the greater good of the Season 20 Fundraiser.

Title sponsors, Tt eSPORTS, have offered up a Tt eSPORTS SHOCK Headset and a Tt eSPORTS Ventus Mouse which we will be giving away to you, the lucky viewer. All you’ll need to enter is a Twitter Account and to be watching the stream. More details will be announced during the show as to how exactly you can lay your hands on those tasty hardware morsels.

The Teams

The birth of this European Reason Gaming squad marks the return of UK kaidus after taking a season off to rehabilitate his wrist and lurk in the shadows before swooping during the dying days of Season 19 to snatch up Netherlands kaptain, Finland zoob, Sweden wltrs and Iceland Hafficool from the rotting carcasses of Iceland Planet ExpressEuropean coolclan and FinlandSweden Lowpander. Early results in pre-season practise and the Sunshine Cup have confirmed their status as contenders.

FinlandSweden Ze Knutsson Rollerbladers seemed all set after taking silver last season, but the recent surprise departure of Finland zappis for the bright lights of CSGO streamer stardom had left the roster exposed with possible question marks over rookie soldier Finland AMS. and the erratic Sweden Knutsson on medic. A shrewd acquisition in the form of UK Starkie has seen off the decline in their stock and opened up several possible viable roster configurations with both himself and Sweden Zebbosai more than capable of playing scout and soldier to the highest level.

Tune in at 20:20CET to witness a preview of what should prove to be one of the closer matches in Season 20 between these two hot playoff contenders.
