Unlocks and Map Pool

Based on the feedback we have gathered in the offseason and the public poll this week, we have decided that after 30 consecutive seasons of running several iterations of cp_badlands, it is time to bench this iconic map for now and give a new-old face another go: cp_logjam!

This season will feature the following maps:

Map Rotation:

Unlocks

The whitelist can be found here.

Changes are:

  • Scorch Shot – Banned
  • Detonator – Banned

Rule Changes

Rule 1.8.2 will be edited and the nickname section will be edited into a general rule.

1.8.2 Premiership players are not allowed to change their ETF2L nickname while the relevant season is underway.

2.9 Players playing in matches casted by an org must use their real nicknames

All players who play in matches casted by an org must play with their ETF2L nickname. Team tags and sponsorship additions are allowed but the nickname must be the same as the nickname on ETF2L. The nickname should be easily recognizable at a glance. Each incorrect nickname will warrant a separate minor warning; a team can receive this punishment multiple times per game.

Preseason Playoffs

The following 6 teams will automatically get a spot into Premiership.

While these 4 will be battling it out for the remaining 2 spots.

    We really shouldn’t be banning weapons just because they’re annoying to play against. They’re not and breaking at all.

    I mean, Badlands still has the most dynamic middle where all classes can exert fairly similar effects on the outcome of a mid-fight, making it highly individualistic with far less correlation to class. On top of that, it allows the most fluent rotations to occur between the second and midpoint, so the removal seems like one hell of an oversight; when was this decision made anyway.

    there was a vote on etf2l and badlands got voted out

    @treetoon
    Mid and its transitions to second and vise-versa are great. The last point on the map ruins that as a whole because it is made in a way where you spend 50-75% of the gameplay there. Which obviously brings down the whole rating of the map.

    I am looking forward to the changes Collaide is trying to make to prolands based off of feedback though but in its current state it is overly disliked.

    Very nice looking map pool.
