Soldier 1v1 MGE Cup
EDIT: We will also have a special whitelist featured for this cup, link to it can be found here. To enable this whitelist in servers with TFTrue, the command “tftrue_whitelist_id etf2l_mge_soldier” needs to be used.
As the last cup of our Summer Sensation we already let you voice your opinion on which class should take the place of getting to see who is the best 1v1 player in the league, and the polls have told that Soldier is the winner with 57.116% of votes!
The group stage for this cup will be played on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th of August with an unseeded round robin stage followed by a single elimination knockout stage on Sunday 20th and Monday 21st. Signups will close on Thursday 17th, 23:59 CEST.
The group stage schedule will be the following:
Group Stage – Friday 18th and Saturday 19th of August
Group round 1: Friday 18th 19:00 CEST – Badlands Middle arena
Group round 2: Friday 18th 20:00 CEST – Gullywash Middle arena
Group round 3: Saturday 19th 19:00 CEST – Granary Middle arena
Group round 4: Saturday 19th 20:00 CEST – Ammomod (MGE) arena
Group round 5: Saturday 19th 21:00 CEST – Badlands Spire arena
These rounds can be rescheduled to be played at any time during the said days, as long as all results are submitted before Saturday 23:59 CEST. All matches without submitted results at that point will be coinflipped.
For Knockout Stage we will have top 3 teams from each group advancing to the knockout stage. These matches cannot be rescheduled unless if they are played earlier, playing later is not a possibility. The arenas will remain the same from Group Stage with every match being a BO3, every player gets to ban an arena once and pick an arena once, with the last remaining arena being the decider. The ban/pick process will be similar to Case 1 said here, where Team A gets to ban first, Team B to ban second and pick first, and Team A to pick second with the final map being the tiebreaker arena.
Default dates for Knockout Stage matches will begin with round 1 on Sunday 20th at 18:00 CEST, with round 2 played at 19:00 CEST and round 3 played at 20:00 CEST along with round 4 played at 21:00 CEST. Every round after that will be played on Monday starting at 19:00 CEST by default, there will also be a third place match after semi-finals are done.
We highly recommend people joining up for this cup to play their matches in their private MGE servers, however admins can allow players to play their matches in public MGE servers as well if there are no private servers available to give for players to play on.
