6v6 Season 42: Config changes

Date June 1, 2022

Banner by UnitedKingdom soda

We know that update is quite late now the season has already started, but we would like to inform you about the poll results regarding potential config changes tested during the S42 Preseason Cup to the win conditions and round timer.

Poll results

There were two decisions to make – one regarding the win conditions, setting up a fixed limit for rounds won on 5CP maps over the previous windifference 5 config. The results are as follows:

The other was with regards to the round timer, if it should be left default or reduced to the 5 minutes per round on 5CP maps as tested in the Preseason cup.

Config changes

As a result of the testing and polls, we have committed a config change last week (4 days ago to be exact) and it can be found here of our configs. You can see the exact changes here in the diff between the previous (1.0.3) and current config version (1.0.4).

  • 5CP maps will now be played to a maximum of 5 rounds (instead of windifference 5)
  • The round timer on 5CP maps will be limited to 5 minutes (from the default 10)

Spring Rule Updates

Date May 29, 2022

Banner by Poland bobair

As it has been a while since some rules were updated we have compiled a good amount of changes into one post. Without further ado, below you can find the rule additions and changes.

Rule Updates

Rule Additions

3.9.1 No Live Coaching allowed
During an ongoing official teams may not receive specific match directions or guidance by third parties who are not directly involved in the match themselves (e.g. with the help of screensharing, voice communication channels, by watching a player’s POV in person etc.). These kind of interactions must be limited to periods before and after a match, during pauses or in-between rounds.

3.9.2 Streaming official matches
Players are free to stream their matches on any streaming service. While we do not condone stream sniping, we will not punish any offenders as it is a risk players willingly take by streaming their matches. Teams are expected to understand this risk. We suggest adding a stream delay of at least two minutes and taking further measures to reduce the possibility of getting stream sniped (e.g. muting the stream during pauses).

5.5. Teams must be able to provide STV demos when requested
Teams must record STV demos for every official. Admins may request STV demo files at any time up until three weeks after the official match was played; admins may request as many files as they require. Only admins can request STV demos.

The responsibility to upload the files is on the team that owns the server or, if the server is owned by neither team, on the team that acquired the server. In case of a technical failure the demo file does not have to be uploaded, provided that evidence for the technical failure exists.
Please be aware that server hosters only keep demo and log files for a limited amount of time. We recommend that you enable automatic uploads to demos.tf or archive all of your team’s official demos until three weeks after the official was played.

Failure to upload a demo file until 72 hours have passed after the request will be punished with a Minor Warning for the responsible team. Repeated offenses will be punished with a Major Warning each. These warnings can be removed if the associated demo files are provided.

Date May 28, 2022

Provisional Tiers

Down below are this season’s provisional tiers. If you can’t find your team it could be due to you recently changing your team name. Teams marked in yellow are more likely to be moved if there is a need to change teams around.

Unhappy about your place? Feel free to contact us over at our Discord Server. These tiers are still subjected to change if teams make a good case as to why they should be moved.
