The second edition of the TF2CSA Cup Series will be taking place next month and will be played on custom maps only as part of the challenge for this tournament.
The maps that will be used will be the following:
The map cp_coldfront is already an official map and came with an update a while ago but still this map has not been played enough on 6v6 to find out if the TF2 SA community like it or not. Also after this Cup we could make some changes for next year’s 6v6 v3 to include some of these custom maps and remove some of the current 8 maps pool used if requested.
Signups for the TF2CSA Cup v2 Custom Maps are now open.

Signups Open: 22nd August
Signups Close: 31st August
Kick off: 2nd September
Groups Stage: 2nd until 26th September
Finals: 3rd October
For this cup we will have 2 groups (high) & (mid/low) teams and each group will have their own final so after every team had played each team once (from their group) then the top 2 of each group will go to the finals. This method will require less games to be played and will keep motivated both groups as well as a much balanced tournament something like the ESEA Invite and Open divisions kind of groups.
We are aware that exams period will be around the corner and some teams might not be able to take part on this Cup but the structure of the groups and without semi finals means that each team would play around 4 to 6 games (This Cup will be limited to a maximum of 10 teams) in 5 weeks so it will be very flexible.

Group Alpha (High/+Mid)
Group Beta (Mid/Low)
