Season 32 is sponsored by… you!

Unfortunately, we are not able to present a title sponsor (yet?) this time around, but that’s okay. Because we already have the best sponsor there is: our beloved community!
ETF2L is able to put up 480 € by itself, thanks to our ad revenue and our affiliate program! So thank you to anyone who has AdBlock disabled and uses our amazon affiliate-link to shop online!
Furthermore, Faint Gaming is chipping in another 220 € to this season, bringing up our total to 700 €!
In addition to disabling AdBlock and shopping on Amazon, you can contribute an extra buck via PayPal to [email protected] and/or donate items to the ETF2L backpack steam account

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:


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.
