…is a pleasure for every project. First of all, I really want to thank everybody for all the positive feedback! Our statistic after the first 7 hours: 16 clans signed, ~100 people voted, ~1200 hits.
That’s already places us in the first and only “bad” news: All slots for the ETF2L Starting Cup are taken. We are very proud of having some of the best Europe clans in already. The nominees for the ETF2L Starting Cup Champion are: Clan United, ColdFusion, CurseD Clan, FoF, Team Jobola, The Last Resort, Xeno-Project.tf2, charge, mamboswing, veil, 9 Men, HerbsArmy (Red Squad), animus, last one alive lock the door, simply iQ and Soldiers at Work.
As we don’t have any results of the clans in our league yet, the first cup will be done with drawings. Any teams can meet each other in every round. For some thrill we will also do live drawings at our IRC channel #etf2l @ QuakeNet. Feel invited for the 1st-Round-Draw next Monday, 3rd December, at 19:30CET! The 1st Round will suppose to be played in the week from 10th till 16th December.
Now we want you to remember that your team, of course, can still sign up for the 1st ETF2L season, which will start in the week of 07.01.2008. Don’t forget signups will close on the 12th December! Some people had problems registering their clan on the site. Some explanation: Only 1 (!) player has to register at our site. When you are logged in, click on “Dashboard”. There you will find a “Register Clan” button. Be sure you got all correct TF2 SteamID from your player. Add the members in the format: “0:1:3343541 TestDummy” (without the “). If you need any more help feel free to contact us by IRC or E-Mail. We will also add a forum to the page soon.
Already over 100 people voted about the loved or hated crits. As it looks like by now, crits will be disabled in the ETF2L. Do you agree with that or you would prefer playing with crits? Give us your opinion, you can still vote till Sunday night. After that the vote will be closed. Also the next votes will start tonight. There are _many_ different opinions about class restrictions so we really hope to get some rules everybody can live with. There will be three votes: Mediclimit, sniperlimit and about all other classes. You will have the possibility to choose between limit of 1, 2, 3 or unlimited. These votes will end on Monday the 3rd, at 23:59CET. Notice: If a vote ends with two very close percentages, there will be a 2nd final vote between these two top answers.
Beside that we are still discussing about a good scoring system for dustbowl and gravelpit, which are pretty unbalanced. We are open for good ideas, which will make these maps more competitive. We will probably have a vote about possible scoring systems next week.
We are also happy to already welcome a new addition to our organization team. Riemu, member of Herbs Army, joined us as admin. Hope you will have a nice time!
All I have to give you for now is the votes; remember you can only vote once:
Total Voters: 140
Total Voters: 135
Classlimits for all other classes?
Total Voters: 136
