Essentials.TF has announced the launch of Essentials.TF Season 0.

The first beta season is one of many planned for the future, with monthly tournaments and experimental cups being featured, plus a prize pool of €2000 per season. Season 0 will run between September 13 to December 17. While primarily European-focused, the season is also available to teams within the North American region who wish to participate.

Essentials.TF described the beta format and its goals further on their website:

Splitting the year into seasons gives us a natural break in what we’re doing to review rules, map pool or anything else that might need changing. We will be adopting a system with an active map pool as well as a reserve pool. After each season changes will be made to both pools, and what maps are to be played is decided by looking at feedback from the very best TF2 players, as well as listening to the community as a whole.

Sign-ups have opened for the September Essentials.TF Experimental One Night Cup on Toornament.

Additional information about Essentials.TF Season 0 is available on Essentials.TF's website.

Probably wasn't the best idea to advertise it as a "season" when it looks like just a set of monthly cups.

At least this has actual prize money I guess.

When we get all the tools on our website ready I hope that splitting the year into seasons makes more sense. At the moment it's just a way for us to easily make changes to map pool and rules but still keeping some consistency and with players knowing that it will happen beforehand. It hopefully also gives offline events some context, think ESEA LANish.
