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.
