With Season 27 in the playoff stages the season is over for the majority of teams. However there is still over a month to go till the insomnia61 LAN kicks off, but do not worry as here at ETF2L we have a series of summer cups both serious and fun planned over the next month.

There will be a cup run each week. In this post we will have info on the first two of the four cups, the schedule and info for the later pair of cups will be released after the first two have concluded as these cups are still in planning stages. If you have any ideas that you would like to see for a short weekend cup let us know either on discord or in the comments.

prolandscup

Prolands cup powered by serveme.tf

The second cup in this series will be slightly more serious than the BBall one, 6v6 this time but focused around cp_prolands_b2. A rework of the historic map cp_badlands by Sweden Collaide with some small but significant changes all over the map but in particular to last point. Teams will be split into round robin groups of four teams with the top two advancing to playoffs. Teams will be placed in groups according to their skill level.

Sign-ups for Prolands cup will be open until Wednesday 2nd 23:59 CEST. The fixtures will be published on Thursday morning so that teams may play group games on Thursday or Friday if both teams can agree. All group matches without submitted results by Saturday 5th 23:59 CEST will be coinflipped. All matches will be BO1.

Signups are Open Now!

Prizes

But why should you play in this cup, you might ask? That’s where our sponsor, serveme.tf comes to help us to provide a prize pool of 24 keys in total for the top bracket and several codes of 6 month premium for serveme.tf!

Prizes for the top bracket will be spread out like this:

1st place: 12 keys and 6 month serveme.tf premium
2nd place: 6 keys and 6 month serveme.tf premium
3rd place: 6 keys

Prizes for other brackets:

1st and 2nd place: 6 month serveme.tf premium.

Additional rules:
Standard ETF2L 5CP rules will mostly apply for this cup which you can find on our General Rules page. In short: Timelimit 30, Windifference 5. However, if the score is equal after the timelimit of 30 minutes is reached, a Golden Cap with timelimit of 10 minutes will be played. The team that scores a round first during that Golden Cap or, if the time runs out again, whichever team holds the middle, wins the golden cap.

  3. DuMmTm: APEX said:

  4. Divider of Worlds: ReS said:

  5. gaming_messiah2: yeet - EDO said:

  6. Nightmare: SGrill - dab said:

    prolander would be cool, especially the idea of teams banning weapons instead of a general whitelist

  7. Clark: FROG - SDCK said:

    Bball with or without freezecam?

  8. DuMmTm: APEX said:

  9. Bloodis: (League Admin) - (´・ω・`) - NYS said:

    @Clark, without freezecam, forgot to mention it in the post at first but it’s now there.

  13. Collaide: (Anti Cheat Staff) said:

    Well technically the only thing I changed on the last point was the spawn times for both teams, but I’ll let it slide ;)

  14. Collaide: (Anti Cheat Staff) said:

    I forgot the vents

  15. Polarium: -Xe- said:

    will we get medals for bbal cup like we did for the ultiduo cup?

  16. MrBliss: FC - pootis XD said:

    MGE cup. Prolander 7v7. Why are neither of these a thing :(

  17. Jan: (League Admin) - |FV| said:

    @Polarium: There are no bball medals in the game. So unless someone wants to make them there will be none.

  18. TimTum: (ETF2L Donator) - LvG - inv said:

    So the prize is only for the Prolands cup? Not the Bball cup?

  19. Aoshi: (Head Admin) - PrettyGay - Twisted said:

    I dont want to ask valve for additional medals designs to be added only 2 months after the previous addition.

    And yes, prize is prolands cup only.

  20. TimTum: (ETF2L Donator) - LvG - inv said:

    Another Forsaken/Winter Map Cup would be fun again. You can have a lot of maps in the mappool, and for every match you can pick/ban maps or something like that.

  21. Aoshi: (Head Admin) - PrettyGay - Twisted said:

    Sounds too messy for a main map pool tbh. There are a lot of maps with potential though.

  22. silfuckingdeezy said:

    Trying to sign up for bball, but it says I don’t have permissions?

  23. Aoshi: (Head Admin) - PrettyGay - Twisted said:

    You have to be on a 2v2 team and either a deputy or leader.

  24. silfuckingdeezy said:

    Ah, thanks. Does it matter which division I pick? Or is it just one div?

  25. Aoshi: (Head Admin) - PrettyGay - Twisted said:

    Its 1 div.

  26. kKaltUu: R6S - SDCK said:
