Promotions

The winners of each Division/Tiers will automatically be promoted to the next higher Division/Tier unless their starting roster has changed by half or more of their players.

All promotions are open for admin discretion. This is in order to make sure the tiers are as good as they can possibly be. If you are uncertain about being promoted you can follow the below mentioned sign-up process to give additional information about your team.

Sign-up Process

First and foremost you must sign up your team from there: https://etf2l.org/wp/wp-admin/index.php?page=comps

An email does not count as signing up to the upcoming season and is only meant to give further information regarding your team and its placement.

Please note that the success of your request also strongly depends on the free slots in the tier you aim for. Established teams will be favored over new teams or teams that request to jump a tier.

  • Premiership:

If you intend to sign up for the Premiership Tier we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. Due to the Premiership Qualifiers happening while signups are still open, we will only consider teams for the Premiership Qualifiers that signed up before the scheduled deadline. Additionally, we expect teams without a guaranteed Premiership Division spot to be able to compete on the provided Premiership Qualifier dates.

We expect all aspiring Premiership Tier teams to either send us an email ([email protected]) or directly contact a league admin on Steam or Discord with the following:
– Team name, Division you apply for and ETF2L link
– Roster
– Recent results and logs associated to them
– Reasons why your team deserves to be placed in the tier you applied for (optional)

i.e.
Team BIG EXPLOSION, Premiership, https://etf2l.org/teams/1/
announce the roster with the classes

5-2 vs Team Aoshis All Stars (Prem) : https://logs.tf/012345

Teams that do not send an email or contact admins risk losing their spot in the Premiership Qualifiers.

  • Division 1 and Division 2 (High):

If you intend to sign up for Division 1 or Division 2 you must sign up to “High tier” when signing up for the season. We encourage you to send us an email ([email protected]) with the following:
– Team name, Division you apply for and ETF2L link
– Roster
– Recent results and logs associated to them
– Reasons why your team deserves to be placed in the tier you applied for (optional)

i.e.
Team Blood is back, Division 2, https://etf2l.org/teams/1/
announce the roster with the classes

5-2 vs Team Permzilla (Div2) : https://logs.tf/012345

Teams that do not send an email or contact admins risk not the be put in the division they hoped for.

  • Division 3 (Mid), Division 4 (Mid) and Division 5 (Low):

If you intend to sign up for Division 3 (Mid), Division 4 (Mid) and Division 5 (Low) and wish to be placed in a specific division/tier we encourage you to send us an email ([email protected]) with the following:
– Team name, Division you apply for and ETF2L link
– Roster
– Recent results and logs associated to them
– Reasons why your team deserves to be placed in the tier you applied for (optional)

i.e.
Team Sunny White, Mid, https://etf2l.org/teams/1/
announce the roster with the classes

5-2 vs Team niGhtHeaLeR (Mid) : https://logs.tf/012345

Teams that do not send an email or contact admins risk not the be put in the division they hoped for.

  • Division 6 (Open):

If you are applying for Division 6/Open tier (which is our entry division), you do not have to provide any proof that you are capable of playing at that level.

    Preseason cup should be with maps that arent played in the season. Like badlands and granary. Those maps are practically banned from the community since every team just wants to scrimm the maps in the season.

    there is no such rule, we always use preseason cups for testing changes which may or may not come in the upcoming season and this time we take plugin changes importance over map choices

    The year is 2045, after much deliberation & community feedback, the ETF2L admins have decided to remove koth_cucked_rc1 in favor of koth_product_final for its 86th season in a row. All is well in the world.
