Announcing the KOTH Kup
To sustain the momentum generated from the first TF2 6v6 competition and plug the gap before the second TF2 6v6 competition starts, the TF2CSA Team would like to announce sign-ups are currently open for the forthcoming Koth “6v6 v1” Kup. This is a small tournament aimed at introducing new teams and players to competitive 6v6 gaming. The other objective of the competition is to introduce maps that aren’t usually played in the competitive format in South Africa as well as different game styles. We have designs on implementing a “Highlander” competition and other types too, such as “Sniper Wars”, in the future.
The closing date for team sign-ups is 10 May, 2010. This cup will be only be played only on “KOTH Viaduct”. The aim is to introduce this awesome map to those teams and players that have not played 6v6 game play on it yet. The challenge of controlling the central point (where the timer counts down from 3 minutes to 0 for whichever team currently “owns” the point) creates some very challenging battles to capture, hold or regain control of the point.
The tournament will consist of 2 groups with the top 2 teams from each group advancing to the knock out stages (semi-finals / final). The reason for this is to create a balance between the various skill levels that currently exist in competitive TF2 in South Africa. Having 2 groups also affords each team the opportunity to play more matches to get used to KOTH Viaduct. This cup will kick off on 11 May and close on 29 May.
Once the total number of teams is finalised, we can sort how many matches need to be played and will then post the match schedule. Unlike the first 6v6 competition, we are not going to use match days to play, teams will have to play their games before a deadline date.
