Ultiduo Cup #6 Banner

Its been a while but here we are again. This time around we’re having our friends over at serveme.tf sponsoring us. So a big thank you to Netherlands Arie. But let us not go on with the small talk for too long and jump straight into the action.

*UPDATE 2*

Another sponsor has appeared. This time around its Malta Snack with a BIG 42 keys!

*UPDATE*

Austria Kuferl is joining in on the sponsor listing as he donated 90 euros to the cup!

We’ve added a rule regarding weapon pickups and swapped out ultiduo_seclusion_b3 for ultiduo_grove_b2.

WHAT IS ULTIDUO

For everyone who never heard the term “Ultiduo” before: One medic and one soldier per team face off on the King of the Hill map. Whoever holds the central capture point for a total of 5 minutes, scores one point. The team that first scores 2 points, wins the map. There are some tactics, such as bombing the enemy medic while the allied medic stays in spawn or suiciding (as medic) if it becomes obvious he is going to die and lose his uber percentage anyway.

League Admins

We are once again looking for more volunteers to help run and maintain the league.

Among other things league admins take admin requests on IRC, deal with match conflicts, handle the setting of Default Dates and the verification of played matches. They also create and oversee cups.

Dealing with match conflicts is a task that has to be addressed in a timely fashion. Additionally providing support during match times is quite important. therefore we cannot really employ admins who have team commitments every four to five times per week. Same goes for creating and overseeing cups. It is always easier said than done, having the idea and setting up a cup is only a small part of actually running a cup. Being there when the cup is under way, providing match support, addressing conflicts, lending out servers, seeding further rounds, verifying finished matches and many more tasks have to be handled, while possibly over 100 matches are going on simultaneously, you may not be alone, but you will be part of it.

Also something we want to address is our interest in self-managed admins, we will not take you by the hand and lead you through everything there is to do. YOU have to show interest, YOU have to ask what you can do, YOU have to prove you really want to be an admin. There are plenty of admins around almost all the time, who are happy to help you and show you the ropes, but at some point routines will have to be dealt with without someone telling you that they need to be done. At the same time, communicating with other admins is very important, to avoid certain tasks being done twice, conflicting results in decisions or even decisions overwriting previous ones.

If you are interested in supporting the administrative backbone for the league, you should also check out the details on the respective application page, this will tell you which information we need from you at the very least.

Season 26 powered by Tt eSPORTS: Premiership Week 4 – Lemmings vs Lowpander & Champ.GG K! vs nunya

Date February 18, 2017

banner-s26-1920x1080

Another double bill, and a chance to see where European Lowpander stand: playoff contenders or just playing to avoid the bottom? They have looked more than decent so far, and with the addition of legendary player Finland cookye (possibly, if ‘internet issues’ don’t strike again), can they make that top 4? Getting six points here over Germany Lemmings will certainly affirm these targets.

Meanwhile, European ChampGG.K! look to hoover up more points versus a lower tier prem side. Despite just being edged in week 2 against top5rocket , they bounced back convincingly last week, and will be favored to gain six points here without a hitch, and inadvertently compound Belarus nunya‘s dire season.

Season 26 powered by Tt eSPORTS: Premiership Week 4 – Arctic Foxes vs Se7en

Date February 16, 2017

banner-s26-1920x1080

Of all its iterations, UnitedKingdom Se7en is the only premiership-winning team to not have featured a German in its roster (excluding Rising, but he only played for half a season) since 2012, such has been the strength of German TF2 over the years. One person who has been there throughout to enjoy all the success is Germany schocky, the International Arctic Foxes leader and the most experienced player prem has at this point. Joining him is Germany CYKAZ, who still doesn’t appear to have fully taken to prem yet, and Germany feeling, who most certainly has, by putting in some amazing performances so far. If he keeps up this level of consistency, he could be a contender for pocket of the season.

Up against them is the team of the season, for five seasons in a row. It would take a big performance to topple Se7en, and every week is another week closer to the season title as far as they’re concerned. Can the Foxes schock the champions out of autopilot, or will this just be another week of the season for them?
