We are starting off season 25 with a 6v6 cup featuring two controversial maps made by phi, as well as a new king of the hill map by Tekku. The main focus of the cup is to test allowing all weapon pickups as well as play testing koth_forge_b3!
The ETF2L 6v6 Preseason 25 Cup
Signups are open until Monday 29th August 20:00 CEST! Eligible to participate is any 6v6 or Fun team that has 6 players on the roster at the end of Signups.
The cup will run on one day in a group stage format
Tuesday, August 30th.
- 19:00 CEST: Round 1 on cp_sunshine and koth_forge_b3
- 20:00 CEST: Round 2 on koth_forge_b3 and cp_reckoner_b3
- 21:00 CEST: Round 3 on cp_reckoner_b3 and cp_sunshine
We will create groups of 4 teams, so you’ll be able to prepare screenshots for Season 25, as well as having fun games. Make sure you select the division you’re most likely going to apply for in Season 25 or you think your mix team is capable of handling.
Teams will be seeded first come first serve. Signing up late just before the deadline will not guarantee your team a seed if there aren’t 3 other teams to create a bracket.
The 6v6 Season 24 rules apply in this cup with the exception of the merc rule and weapon pickup rules. We are allowing one default merc per match. Please only present players as default mercs, that meet the experience requirements to prevent time consuming discussions (for clarification see point 1.4 of the HL Season 10 rules). All weapon pickups, including mediguns, are now permitted.
NOTE: Abuse of picking up weapons from ground with a pickup spam bind will result in punishments such as default losses if done during any of the games.
The whitelist that is going to be used is this one (This is a test-whitelist that is not necessarily going to be the exact same for Season 25).
You can also execute the whitelist by typing “rcon tftrue_whitelist_id 6249” if you have TFTRUE installed.
In short, the following weapons have been added to the whitelist of Season 24:
+ Brass Beast
+ Pomson 6000
… and fixed taunts accordingly to be up to date with the newest set of items.
Every 1st team will receive a pixel trophy on their team page and the rights to brag about their achievements.
In any case, there is going to be a newspost before the cup starts. Make sure to check etf2l.org before you play your first round match for all the updates!!
