Map pool

The following maps are already confirmed for the season.

The last two map spots will be decided with a poll after the preseason cup is played.

Whitelist

There are no changes to the whitelist for Season 27 so far. We are going to see how whitelist changes will be seen by the players after the Preseason Cup.

Preseason Cup

The cup will have the format of a 3 matches group stage with a playoff stage, and will be played on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of July.

The map pool will consist of pl_badwater_pro_v12 (especially different than v9 on the third point), koth_cascade, and cp_caldera (that was updated about a month ago).

We’ll also use the preseason cup to try a couple of small whitelist changes:

  • Reserve Shooter – allowed,
  • Air Strike – allowed.

The whitelist can be found here: https://whitelist.tf/etf2l_9v9_s27pre and can be executed with the following command: “rcon tftrue_whitelist_id etf2l_9v9_s27pre”, or “rcon tftrue_whitelist_id 13217”.

Schedule
Signups are open from July 18th until Friday July 29th at 20:00 CEST.

Playoff Stage – Sunday July 31st:

Promotions

Last season’s 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 to 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 here: 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 Division
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 the ETF2L 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 the Premier Division

e.g.

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)

e.g.

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.

Mid (Division 3 and 4) and Low (Division 5)
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)

e.g.

Team Sunny White, Mid, https://etf2l.org/teams/1/
