2on2 Special Rules

CTF maps:
These maps are without time limit.
When a team reached the map objective, then they won the round.
Round time is not counted here. Objective can be reached in overtime.
Self kills are disallowed at all as well as Fire Supports and teamkills on purpose.
Doing a self kill/Fire Support results in at least losing the round. In very special cases you even can lose the map.

Objective maps:
All objective maps have a specific time limit.
This is played in the usual stopwatch format.
Self kills are allowed!
