The Cup will consist of three rounds and be held in a single elimination manner. Seeding will be done by members of the competitive community who are aware of clan skill levels and match up’s will be announced at least 1 day before the cup starts.

Each round will be 45 minutes long, in the first 15 minutes clans will have the opportunity to do a map elimination. The format of this will be a melee round* where the whole team will only be allowed to utilise their melee weapon, the team who wins the melee round may choose the map to be played. After the map has been selected by the winning melee team players will have only one chance to beat their opponents, i.e. one map. The winning team will be promoted to the next round and the losing team falls out.

*Melee Round: All players from each clan will change their class to Demoman and choose the Bottle.

  • Round 1: 19:00
  • Round 2: 19:45
  • Round 3: 20:30
