Season 33 Preseason Cup: Fixtures Released & Map Update!

Date May 16, 2019

etf2l-logo-banner_small

The fixtures for the Season 33 Preseason Cup are now released! The fixtures and tables can be seen within the competition tab in the ribbon. cp_mist received an update to rc1d and thus the cup will make use of this updated version.

If you can’t find your team in the tables it means that you are in the waiting list in reserve, this means there were not enough teams to make an additional group in your requested tier. In the case of a team dropping out of the cup, a team from the waiting list may take their spot.

  • Group stage round 1: May 16th 19:00 CEST – cp_kalinka_rc5
  • Group stage round 2: May 16th 20:00 CEST – cp_metalworks
  • Group stage round 3: May 16th 21:00 CEST – cp_mist_rc1d

All maps in the group stage will be played as a best-of-one. If the score is tied after the regular map time is over then a 15 minute golden cap must be played, if neither teams manage to get a round in this time then the team to hold middle point will win the golden cap.

In the high groups all teams will advance to the knockout stage, in all other groups the top two of the group will advance.
The knockout stage is single elimination. The same golden cap rules apply as in the group stage.

  • Quarter Finals: May 19th 19:00 CEST – BO1, Both teams ban 1 map, remaining map will be played
  • Semi-Finals: May 19th 20:00 CEST – BO1, Both teams ban 1 map, remaining map will be played
  • Grand Finals: May 19th 21:00 CEST – BO3, Both teams pick which map they want to play first/second, remaining map will be the decider map

You can leave feedback on the cup here. If you need to request for an admin to help you for anything related to the cup, we recommend reaching out to us in our Discord Server.

Announcing Season 33 Preseason Cup!

Date May 8, 2019

etf2l-logo-banner_small

As we are reaching closer to the closure of Season 32, we are proud to announce a sneak peek of what’s there to possibly come in Season 33! This cup will focus around testing potential maps for the upcoming season.

>>>Signup now!<<<

Maps:

Group Stage:

Each tier is divided into round robin groups of four teams meaning there could be multiple groups for each tier, teams that sign up sooner will be prioritized in getting a spot in the cup, so do not wait until the last minute to sign up!

  • Signups close: May 15th at 21:00 CEST
  • Group stage round 1: May 16th 19:00 CEST – cp_kalinka_rc5
  • Group stage round 2: May 16th 20:00 CEST – cp_metalworks
  • Group stage round 3: May 16th 21:00 CEST – cp_mist_rc1d

If the score on any of these maps is tied after the timelimit has been reached, a decider round (golden cap) will have to be played. Instead of using timelimit 0 for this cup, the golden cap will be played with winlimit 1 and timelimit 15, if neither team wins a round in this time then the team that holds the middle point captured wins the golden cap.

Knockout Stage:

For this stage we aim to have 8 teams in each knockout bracket, if your skill tier in the cup has only 2 groups, all teams will proceed to the knockout stage by default. If your skill tier in the cup has 4 groups, top 2 teams from each skill group will proceed to the knockout stage.

  • Quarter Finals: May 19th 19:00 CEST – BO1, Both teams ban 1 map, remaining map will be played
  • Semi-Finals: May 19th 20:00 CEST – BO1, Both teams ban 1 map, remaining map will be played
  • Grand Finals: May 19th 21:00 CEST – BO3, Both teams pick which map they want to play first/second, remaining map will be the decider map

If the score on any of these maps is tied after the timelimit has been reached, a decider round (golden cap) will have to be played. Instead of using timelimit 0 for this cup, the golden cap will be played with winlimit 1 and timelimit 15, if neither team wins a round in this time then the team that holds the middle point captured wins the golden cap.
