As 2017 draws to near we are pleased to announced the ETF2L Season 26 Preseason Cup. The focus of this cup will be to test three maps. yrr‘s new map koth_bagel_b3a that was recently tested in ozfortress, cp_edifice_rc1 an attack defence map by phi, and cp_warmfront a 5cp map was last seen in 6v6 way back in season 9.
Signups are open until Saturday 7th 20:00 CET! Any 6v6 or Fun team that has at least 6 players on the roster at the end of Signups is eligible to play. If the deadline has passed you may still be able to participate if the initial groups have not been published.
A group stage will run on Sunday 8th, followed by knockout stages on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th.
Sunday 8th January.
- 19:00 CET: Round 1 on cp_warmfront
- 20:00 CET: Round 2 on koth_bagel_b3a
- 21:00 CET: Round 3 on cp_edifice_rc1
The knockout rounds will be played on Monday 9th January and Tuesday 10th January with at most two rounds per day depending on how many rounds are needed. All knockout rounds will be played on koth_bagel and cp_edifice with cp_warmfront as the decider. The exact schedule will be announced after all group games have been played.
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 25 rules apply in this cup, the Global Whitelist will be used.
Every 1st team will receive a pixel trophy on their team page and the rights to brag about their achievements.
There is a feedback thread on the forums to leave feedback about any part of the cup be it maps, schedule, etc.
