6v6 “Conga” Winter Cup

6v6 "Conga" Winter CupIt’s time to Conga like it’s the day the Love and War update was released all over again! Except now there’s an actual reason to be legitimately delirious with happiness, fellow fanatical citizen of TF2 land! Brought to you by your friendly local benevolent overlords at TF2CSA the 6v6 Cup is back and it’s bigger and better than…well than anything – literally ever!

We promised we would do it again and we have! New and improved! This is the tournament you didn’t even realize you were waiting for. But you were. We guarantee it!

At stake for the Cup Grand Final winners in this most prestigious of competitive endeavours is the Rancid Cup of Destiny! Lay claim to its filthy, but utterly fulfilling charms if you dare! Join all of South African TF2-dom in the hunt for this elusive and beguiling prize. Register your team today and join this epic quest. Fame, glory, riches and a sanitarily questionable plastic cup of dubious origins plastered with masking tape awaits you! And if we’re feeling particularly benevolent, some actual prizes could be yours too.

Pool Format

  • Limit of 8 Teams, separated into 2 pools of 4 teams each. Should there not be enough teams for the full 8, the competition format will be changed accordingly.
  • Pool A games start Saturday 16 August from 6pm
  • Pool B games start Sunday 17 August from 6pm
  • The final classification of the teams will be based on the tally of wins, draws and losses across the 8 teams
  • No GC in the pool stage, so a draw is a draw.
  • Based on the set map pool, the captains bottle fight to determine who chooses the first map. No time wasting during the bottle fight! The same map cannot be chosen twice by a team during the course of the pool stage.
  • One map per match, rather than the usual 2 maps. Each team plays 3 matches in the pool stage
  • A full match schedule, including pools and match times will be posted on Thursday 14 August.

Plate Final Knockout Format

  • The 4 bottom placed teams from the two pools will go into the Plate Final knockout competition, starting with the two semi finals on Saturday 23 August at 6pm
  • The Plate Final will be played on Saturday 23 August at 8pm
  • Traditional 2 maps in each match. If the match is tied across the two maps (based on wins/ losses/ draws), the tiebreaker will be a GC round.
  • The first map choice in the match is determined by the bottle fight, with the loser picking the 2nd map.
