The way to do this is explained at the bottom of this newspost. Teams looking into playing in either division 1 or 2 will need to sign up to High tier when signing up for the season. If teams would want to specify to which of these Divisions they want to be placed in, we strongly encourage teams to send in an application to us with the said method below.

Bloodis Leaves the Ship, the Search for New Sailors Is On

Date August 27, 2019

1890_Bismarcks_Ruecktritt

In less than two years since I had joined ETF2L in 2013 as a normal player like everyone of us, I had applied myself to a 6v6 League Admin position that was open in 2015, ever since that day I’ve been able to have an unforgettable experience being a part of this league growing up within the current state of TF2. However from this day onward I will be resigning from my duties of being a Head Admin in the league after being involved in the league for over 4 years, more than half of the time I’ve even been able to play TF2 for.

I’ve always wanted to help out everyone in the league with any concern that has come up a discussion whilst still caring about the top level competition that this game also has, however as I have lost the personal interest to keep that up I still do have high hopes for the current ETF2L staff on being capable to still run everything smoothly. If you do not believe that, then I dare everyone who doubts that to apply to an admin themselves! I know >99% of the people who will read this won’t do so, but I will be positively surprised of that <1% that I hope to see in the trial admin position soon, most hopefully as a proper league admin even.

Anyhow, during my time here I want to personally thank Aoshi, DCS, Sonny Black, Permzilla, Menty, Moist, emb, Amaterasu, Lazybear, soda, Morphine and proky for making my time here as an admin enjoyable. Not to mention the other former and current admins I had not mentioned here, you all are valuable for keeping this legendary project up!

Filling in the gap

Finland Bloodis has been a valued member of staff for a very long time and their absence will leave a hole that will need to be filled. So with that said we’re looking to reinforce our staff with some new league admins. An explanation on how to apply can be found here. If you applied before but didn’t get a response, always feel free to apply again!

Season 33 Premiership Grand Finals: Se7en vs. Ascent.EU

Date August 20, 2019

For the third consecutive time, Se7en and Ascent.EU will face off in the ETF2L Premiership Grand Final. Due to the new playoff system, it will also be Se7en’s first appearance since the end of the regular season over a month ago thanks to their 1st place on the scoreboard. It will thus be a cold and collected Se7en side facing off against an Ascent.EU squad that has been on a upward trend, and will surely be eager to prove that third time’s the charm.

If Se7en might not have played in a month, we’ve seen a lot of Ascent.EU in the playoffs so far. Despite coming off a lukewarm regular season where they placed 3rd, amppis’ alpinists have managed to climb their way from the bottom of the playoffs, and have looked nothing but confident on the way. After dispatching a tenacious but ultimately not dangerous Ora Elektro, they faced off against Faint, the only team to beat Se7en this season. A previous clash had seen the two teams walk away in a tie, but this time Ascent.EU looked more prepared, and the affair was over in two, admittedly close, maps.

Catch a preview of i65, a nail-biting game, the clash of two dynasties, and some overall fine TF2 by tuning in !
