Very important Updates:
EVERY TEAM HAS UNTIL FRIDAY, 11TH SEPTEMBER, 20:00 CEST TO CKECK-IN TO THE TOURNAMENT.
If you do not check in, you will be replaced by another team.
. 74 teams have signed up and will be split into 3 skill groups:
- 1. 8 Newbie teams, who -for the most part- have no experience in competitive TF2 from what we have been able to gather.
They will play their own little tournament, completely independently (albeit also through the same toornament event).
Newbie teams are:
Bottle o' Scrumpy
Doctor Assisted Homocide
Middle East Beef
Orng Kerbo Gaming
They will play in 2 groups of 4. In groupstage, you will play 1 map using ETF2L rules. After groupstage, the two 2nd placed teams will play a Best-of-3 maps match for 3rd place, the two group winners will play one Best-of-3 maps match for 1st place.
- 2. 60 Open teams, who will be split into 10 groups of 6 teams each.
They will play BO1 matches in the groupstage. The winners of each group will join the Invite single-elimination knockout bracket.
The 50 teams which got knocked out in open, will be able to play a B-Tournament on sunday. Ideally we will create 5 skill groups (all 2nd placed teams, all 3rd placed teams etc....) with 2 groups of 5 teams each.
Now, we realise this is a dream that will not come true due to teams dropping out of the B-tournament on sunday, so that is a subject to change.
3. 6 Invite teams, who will be playing a BO1 maps Round Robin groupstage to determine seeding for the knockouts.
Invite teams are:
karnax le bouquet misère
Signups have been re-opened until saturday, 12th September, 9 am CEST. Everyone signing up from now on will be placed on a waiting list and possibly make it in should teams fold.
The updated schedule will follow in the next post.
