Map & Matchplay
  • Map: pl_upward
  • Config: ugc_HL_stopwatch.cfg
  • Match Date: Monday May 21st
  • Match Play:­ Stopwatch maps are played in 2 halves where each team attacks once and defends once in each half. The Home team decides ­whether to attack first or defend first in the first half­ only. A team is considered to win the half when they capture the same number of points faster than their opponent or prevent their opponent from capping as many points as they did. Each half won counts as 1 point. For more details and guides on how to play PL maps please see this forum thread.
