Season 14 is almost upon us, and as a late Christmas present we’ve decided to announce some details early: the Season Schedule, the Map Pool, and more importantly, the Unlocks. We are also happy to announce that Twitch will support Season 14 as the main sponsor!
Signups: January 2 – 9
Seeding: January 9 – 11
Publishing of Provisional Divisions: January 12
Schedule Week: January 13 – 19
Main Season: January 20 – March 2 (7 weeks)
Catch-up Week: March 10 – 16
Playoffs: March 17 – April 7
You can still sign up your team after January 9. Teams signing up later than January 9 will be placed on the waiting list and have a very high chance of replacing dead or dropping teams during the first three play weeks.
Turbine has proven to be the least popular map of Season 13′s map pool, and thus it has been removed. In Season 14, we will put an emphasis on mastering a smaller pool of maps, all of which are well-known and popular throughout all levels of play.
- Week 1: cp_badlands/cp_gullywash_final1
- Week 2: cp_badlands/cp_snakewater
- Week 3: cp_snakewater/cp_gullywash_final1
- Week 4: cp_gullywash_final1/cp_process_rc2
- Week 5: cp_process_rc2/cp_snakewater
- Week 6: cp_process_rc2/cp_granary
- Week 7: cp_granary/cp_badlands
Based on the feedback from the 6th Cup, we have decided to break the status quo and introduce the Cup’s unlocks into our regular 6v6 League. We believe that these carefully chosen unlocks will add more variety and tactical depth to 6v6 across all skill levels.
The complete list of unlocks allowed in Season 14 is as follows:
- The Kritzkrieg
- The Übersaw
- Crusader’s Crossbow
- The Blutsauger
- The Overdose
- The Gunboats
- The Boston Basher
- The Pain Train
- The Escape Plan
The Season 14 whitelist will be identical to the 6th Cup whitelist.
Season 14 signups, prizes and rule changes will be announced on January 2nd. Enjoy the holidays, and we will see you again in 2013!
