Since CEVO|Lange is away this week, I figured I should provide a general update on CEVO TF2 Season 5 as the time to complete registration is quickly running out.
As of this AM there have been 122 payments in Season 5 for a total of $2,494.00. Our s5 prize pool of $8,146.00 isn't affected by this season's slow registration as it's guaranteed and will be given out regardless of how many teams register, but we determine our future season's prize pool based on the league fees from the previous season, so at this rate it doesn't look like we'll be able to sustain this type of prize pool in s6 :(
At the end of the night on Thursday, July 10th we'll be moving all "Ready" teams to the regular season, and after this date, rosters will remain open for players to join/leave teams, but new teams won't be able to register.
So far there are 5/45 "Ready" teams in the Open division, 0/22 "Ready" teams in the Main division, and 0/9 "Ready" teams in the Professional division. If you are on a team that was in the process of applying for Main division moveup, you will need to open a ticket to continue that process.
In an effort to be totally transparent, when the team registration period closes at the end of the night on Thursday, July 10th if there aren't at least 16 "Ready" teams in the Main division we'll be merging the Open/Main divisions and adjusting the prize pool distribution to the following:
Professional Division (75%) - $6,109.50
Open Division (25%) - $2,036.50
Refunds will be available to anyone who requests one through our support system (http://cevo.com/support) until the regular season begins on July 11th.
As always if you have any questions about CEVO or Season 5, feel free to post them below and I'll do my best to get back to you as quickly as I can.
