The Weekly Series will feature tournaments for both North America and Europe. Every two weeks, thirty-two teams will compete in a single-elimination bracket for gold and glory.

TFTV EU Weekly Series #1 Powered by FACEIT

The first tournament of the month will be the EU Weekly Series #1 Powered by FACEIT, which will feature a 20,000 FACEIT points prize pool up for grabs.

Registration for the EU Weekly Series #1 is now open on FACEIT’s site, with thirty-two team slots available. Player can sign with either a team or the solo feature to have FACEIT match you up with other players. Sign ups will close on May 18 at 19:00 CEST; check-in will be on May 20 at 18:00 CEST, with the tournament commencing on the same day at 19:00 CEST.

Format

The map pool will feature 5CP maps from the ESEA map pool, with the maps being:

  • cp_badlands
  • cp_snakewater_final1
  • cp_gullywash_final1
  • cp_process_final
  • cp_granary
  • cp_sunshine

The ruleset for the tournament will adopt the ETF2L rules. 5CP maps will have a thirty minute time limit and a five round win difference, with Golden Cap rounds deciding tiebreakers.

Prize Pool

20,000 FACEIT points are up for grabs, with the distribution being as follows:

  • 1st: 10,000 FACEIT points
  • 2nd: 6,000 FACEIT points
  • 3rd-4th: 2,000 FACEIT points

More tournaments will be coming within the next few weeks, and we will keep you updated on when sign ups go live. We'd also like to give a special thank you to FACEIT for their support.

21 cet start for a 5 game tournament? that's quite late for people who want to maintain a sleep schedule especially in eastern europe (doesnt matter for me though xD)

especially if theres a 15 minute break between every game. the tournament could take 3,5 hours, which will result in it ending after 1 am for eastern europeans

The way it's gonna work for the Weekly Series is that there will be a tournament every two weeks, and it will rotate from EU to NA and back.

I am really confused, I was told by Gemm this would start at 19 CEST, but on this post it says it starts at 21 CEST?

Please clear this up, this will effect the quality of the signups.

Hello yes sorry for my incompetence. It was set to 9 pm cest. It is now set to 7 pm cest. It's my first time doing something like this, so bear with me. But, this shows how FACEIT is willing to help us. Thanks to Cristian for this opportunity.

And yes, if you're going solo you'd have to wait until the Check In is open.

timezones strike concor once again

pendaHow long do you think 32 teams every week will sign up to play in this?

we chose 32 since we thought it was a number that should most likely accommodate every team that wanted to play, based on past cups with faceit and razer, and 16 felt too low for a max. im not expecting it to fill up every week, or potentially at all

I think it is possible, according to the FACEIT admins. I'll try to ask them again.
