Get Ready For Season 25!

Important Dates

Tuesday, Oct 10th - UGC Fulltime Rosterlock
Wednesday, Nov 1st - Playoffs Start

Season Format
This seasons format will feature 8 regular weeks with 2 weeks of playoffs. These playoffs are going to be a little different than we have previously tried. Due to the lack of commitment to our previous playoff format, only the top 4 teams in every division will be participating. The format will be single-elimnation best of three utilizing the map elimination / pickban process. There will be a fulltime lock for rosters and name changes before the default match day of Week 7 to support this.

Team Placements
Regional teams outside of NA are actively being placed. For North America, we are monitoring sign ups and Ready teams. It's no secret that numbers have lowered for our league and TF2 as a whole. There is a chance that we would go down to only two NA divisions this season. This is not set in stone yet, but I wanted to give you all a heads up in case this does happen. This will impact how we do placements this season. If we keep three divisions we will do placements similar to last season. I think overall it was successful, with just a few teams that could have been placed differently. We will try to learn from last season. If we go down to two divisions then placements will have to be a little more creative.

Reminder to All New and Returning Teams
After you have been placed into a division and have at least 6 players on your roster, don't forget to set your team to Ready in your leader panel to be scheduled for matches!

Season Medals
All players will receive a participation medal assuming they were rostered on a team for a majority of the season. Regional divisions and NA Platinum will receive placement medals for top 3 teams.

Map Rotation
Maps have been posted. Due to popular feedback, Granary will be returning to the rotation. We will be using the latest Pro version. We will also be attempting the Pro version of Badlands this season. Both of these Pro versions are actively being worked on, so if there are things you do not like, please reach out to the mapmakers. On that note, our wildcard map for the season will be Kalinka made by Jusa (maker of RamJam). This map has received some really solid feedback so far and we are excited to include it in this season's rotation.

Whitelist
We will continue to participate in the global whitelist. All the leagues decided to postpone any changes to the whitelist until after the update that will refactor a large amount of the weapons. We also feel pretty good about where it is at currently.

Chat Support
Our league's Chat Support is held over the Discord application.
If you are logged in as a player or leader, this support option is on your menu. We have also embedded the Discord widget on this page. For more details please visit this forum thread.

Support Tickets
If you have an issue that requires admin attention, please use our support ticket system. Players who login via Steam can submit a ticket as well as leaders who login with a special leader username/password. The ticket system can be located in the Support Menu once you login as a player or a leader.

Thank You and Good Luck!
