etf2l-logo-banner_small

The One Night Cup is Dead! Long live the One Night Cup!

First congratulations to all the teams that won or took part in the first One Night Cup. However now it is time to focus on the whitelist, for this cup we are going to be testing two changes to the Global Whitelist. We will be unbanning the Solemn Vow and banning the Vaccinator, the cup whitelist can be found here. This cup will be using more conventional maps, cp_process_final, koth_product_rc8, and cp_gullywash_final1. Signups are open until the 28th of April with the cup taking place on Saturday the 29th

This cup will use the same 4 team round robin format of the previous One Night Cup. Season 26 rules will apply unless specified in a news post.

  • 19:00 – cp_process_final
  • 20:00 – koth_product_rc8
  • 21:00 – cp_gullywash_final1

For this cup one mercenary is allowed by default and up to 2 mercenaries are allowed if the opposing team agrees. In order for your mercenary to be allowed by default, he cannot be more experienced than the tier the match is being played in.

A player counts as “experienced” in the tier if, during the last three seasons, they played 3 or more officials in that tier. For this cup, we will look at matches from Season 24, 25 and 26. If a player is on a roster of a team in a higher tier than the match in question, he cannot be claimed as a default merc.

If you have any feedback regarding the maps or whitelist changes please leave it in either the maps or whitelist discussion thread on our forum.
If you have any more general feedback or questions please contact us on our IRC Support Channel or on our Discord.

Announcing a pair of One Night Cups!

Date April 14, 2017

etf2l-logo-banner_small

Instead of a standard preseason cup over a few days we have decided to run two smaller one night cups, one for testing new maps and one for testing new whitelists. First up will be the map testing, followed by the whitelist testing after which the signups for Season 27 will open. Both 6v6 and Fun Teams can signup.

Both cups will consist of 4 team Round Robin groups with all games taking place over one day at 19:00, 20:00, and 21:00 CEST. These groups will consist of teams around a similar skill level, the winner of each group will get a pixel medal on their team profile.

One Night Cup: Episode 1 The Maps will take place on koth_bagel_rc2a, cp_granary_pro_rc8, and cp_sunshine using the same whitelist as Season 26. Signups for the map cup are open until the 21st of April with the cup itself taking place on Saturday the 22nd.

The Whitelist Cup will take place on standard maps however an experimental whitelist will be used. More details such as the exact weapon changes and maps will be released when the signups for this cup open on the 23rd of April with the cup being on Saturday the 29th.

If you have any feedback regarding the maps or whitelist changes please leave it in either the maps or whitelist discussion thread on our forum.

Fresh Meat Challenge Groups Out! And updated rules!

Date April 11, 2017

FreshMeatCup

The groups for the Fresh Meat Challenge sponsored by Scrap.tf and MarketPlace.tf are now out! The groups can be seen here, along with the fixtures here. The fixtures themselves will be generated tonight (11/04/2017) at midnight. Once the fixtures are generated team leaders will receive an email informing them of the date, time and opponent of the fixture, this information is also available on your team profile. Your team leader should add the leader of your opponent’s team to allow easy communication regarding servers, mercs, and other issues. For a more in depth guide on how ETF2L matches work click here.

Make sure you set your teams availability if you want to be able to influence what day your fixtures will be played on. This can be set by team leaders here by clicking Edit Availability for your team. When the fixtures are being generated our system will look at both teams preferred days and times and choose a date that is the best for both teams, this date can be changed if both teams agree.

Teams are free to play on International servers and negotiate times that suit each other however non-EU teams should take note that as this is primarily a European League, teams from Europe will not be forced to play matches on servers outside of Western Europe or at times outside of common European playtimes (19 to 21 CEST) – Unless they agree to do this.

We have checked through every team roster and removed any players that were over experienced, if you have any questions about why a player was removed or anything else do with the competition please contact us on our Support Channel.

Updated rules

We have also updated some rules on our General Rules page, the updated rules are listed below here:

2.2 Only players with correctly entered Steam IDs are eligible

All players need to be registered on ETF2L, with their SteamID linked to their profile. Using a player not registered on ETF2L will result in the match being defaulted in the opponents’ favour.

A player that’s not verified on a team’s roster by the official match start time as listed on the match page (listed as unverified on the roster, or not on the roster at all) count as merc. Players are verified after being rostered for 24 hours. Competition specific rules apply.

4.5 Maps need to be played in the set order

Maps are required to be played in the order as they are mentioned on the match page from left to right. Teams may play already set season/cup maps in a different order if they choose to, but only if both teams agree to it.

6.7 Masking ping is not allowed

It is prohibited to alter or mask your ingame ping. Players found manipulating their ping may be punished by a minor warning in any competition where this is used.
