We wanted to include maps that are out of alpha somewhat, so ultiduo_obsidian was out of the list. Ultiduo_dan was too big and chaotic so it got out of the list as well.

Prize Pool Update:
The top 16 teams for Europe will receive 3 months of melkor.tf DM reserved slots, generously donated by maly.
10 more keys have been added to the prize pool. The finalists' prizes for Europe start off as following:
1st Place: 25 Keys, 2 x 1 year serveme.tf premium codes, 2 x 3 months melkor.tf DM reserved slots;
2nd Place: 15 Keys, 2 x 6 months serveme.tf premium codes, 2 x 3 months melkor.tf DM reserved slots;
3rd Place: 10 Keys, 2 x 3 months serveme.tf premium codes, 2 x 3 months melkor.tf DM reserved slots;

Since the main region of the tournament is Europe, the prize pool for an existing NA bracket will only consist of donations towards its prize pool.

Website Update:
I have updated the visuals for teams pages and fixed several details within users' pages + several typos.

Is there any way to postpone playing the group stages until Sunday rather than playing Saturday? Unfortunately that one day means I can't play the entire thing.

eskimoIs there any way to postpone playing the group stages until Sunday rather than playing Saturday? Unfortunately that one day means I can't play the entire thing.

This is the reason why we have allowed 3 players on the team. You can still play as long as your sub wins at least 2 games in the Group Stages.

There is a problem with Steam servers making it impossible to log in through steam on any website. I'm certain it will get a fix pretty soon, nothing I can do due to the problem being on their end. Apologies for the inconvenience!

Ultiduo_nicecicles has its spawn times completely broken. I've decided not to even put any play time on this map due to previous experience with it.

Maps Update:
Ultiduo_grove_b4 has been rolled down to a previous version - ultiduo_grove_b2, due to the new version actually having more bugs than the old one + some changes in the surroundings that were not quite liked from the people that gave feedback.

Friday is the final day to vote in the poll, the first 5 maps that have made it until Saturday will be played in the tournament.
