Welcome everyone, to this thread on TeamFortress.TV! This thread was made to promote the still somehow alive (seriously, it's actually incredible to see this) Creative Gaming Association!
To those that are interested in figuring out what this even is in the first place: I'm glad you asked, cause I'm the owner and founder of the CGA!
I plan on going back to the roots of before S32 of ESEA even happened when S31 was considered the last tf2 season for ESEA.
"How?", you may ask?
Well, first I implement TF2 6v6 and CS:GO 5v5 into the CGA to make a full-on season! I'm going to aim for at least 4 teams for both games. No prize pool, no entry fee. This is all experimental and will shape the future of the Creative Gaming Association.
After the first season is complete we will add divisions. The divisions, as listed from weakest to strongest are: Contender, Challenger, and Champion division. These divisions will be based on previous experience in other leagues such as RGL, UGC, ESEA, and even discord leagues, known or unknown!
Contender will still have the no entry, no prize pool for people in Newcomer, or Amateur/open for TF2 RGL along with Open and low IM for CS:GO.
The challenger division will allow experience between IM, main, and div 2 for tf2 RGL as well as having high IM and low main teams in CS:GO, plus it'll have a small entry fee of between $4-8 per player and will have a small prize pool, but since that's a season 2 thing, the prize pool will be determined at a later date.
The Champion division is the strongest division, fitting div 1 and invite players from TF2 and strong main plus advanced players from CS:GO. It'll also have an entry fee of around $13-17 per player, and obviously have a bigger prize pool, but that is also a S2 thing and therefore TBD at a later date.
the season will have between 3-5 weeks of normal BO1 play for season 1, no divisions whatsoever since its experimental. then 2-3 weeks of BO3 playoffs, most likely 2 weeks since we don't want to waste too much energy from our competitors in the CGA.
I hope you have fun reading this thread and I definitely hope you can stop by and check out the CGA sometime!
