Match procedure
The usual procedure of a match should be like this:

- you challenge your opponent on the ESL page and chose a map
- your opponent confirms the challenge and chooses a map
- you meet in ICQ or IRC (#esl.tf2)
- the teams agree on the server(s) with password
- after the match, mandatory matchmedia are uploaded and the result is entered.

Play 8on8 alternatively
It's possible to play 8on8 if both teams agree on that. You have just to fix this in the matchcomments.

If the teams couldn't agree on playing 6on6 or 8on8, 6on6 has to be played as standard.

All matches have to be played with a classlimit of 2 and a mediclimit of 1. Unlockable weapons are allowed.

You can download an official serverconfig here.

ESL Aequitas
The usage of ESL Aequitas is mandatory. The Aequitas file of every player has to be uploaded within 24 hours after the match and has to be saved for 14 days.

If you fail to upload the files in time, your opponent is allowed to file a protest and request a deletion of the match.

The player(s) and the team will be penalized with 3 penalty points for every missing or incomplete Aequitas file. If it can be proofed, that a player has manipulated a Aequitas file intentionally, he and his team will recieve 6 penalty points. Players, who fail to upload Aequitas files multiple times, can be banned from all Team Fortress 2 leagues.
There must be at least three screenshots uploaded after the match ended (result 1, result 2 and status). Each team has to take care about the screenshots being uploaded.

All players have to record demos from every single round of the match. Demos are recorded with the command 'record demoname'. The recording is stopped with 'stop'. It's necessary to store the demos for at least 14 days.
