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.

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 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.

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.
