Season VI

Following on from Season V we will once again be running a Premiership Division for the top 6 teams competing in the ESL TF2 League. The Premier Division + Division 1 will also be using a different unlock ruleset as opposed to the other division's. We hope that by separating the top teams from the lower ones with more relaxed rules we can satisfy both sides of the unlock debate.


Premiership + Division 1

After discussing the unlock system for Season VI with many teams we decided that the Premiership + Division 1 would play with only the Medic unlocks available. If both teams agree, the other unlocks can be used as well! Both teams have to confirm this via match comment, report or screenshot.

Division 2 and Below

No Force of Nature / No Sandman / No Wrangler

If both teams agree, these unlocks can be used as well! Both teams have to confirm this via match comment, report or screenshot.


The map pool for season VI will be familiar to most players with the usual popular 5 cp maps in place, This season however there are some noticeable changes:

cp_gravelpit will now be played as a best of 3 so you will no longer be able to tie the map.

ctf_turbine will also be played as a best of 3, with the winner's of each round being the first team to 5 caps or the highest before the round ends. Each round will now only last 10 minutes. We hope that these new rule changes to turbine will revitalise the map within the competitive community and make for a faster and more enjoyable game.

To be clear with those above rule changes both Gravelpit and Turbine can now only end with the following scores 2:0 1:2 2:1 0:2









There will be playoffs at the end of the season between the different divisions of the same level. For example, the top 3 teams of Division 2a and 2b would play in the same playoffs cup. In the same manner, the top 3 premiership and Division 1 teams will play in the same playoffs cup.

The Top3 teams of each playoffs cups will win the following prizes:

  • 1st place will win 6x premium accounts in amount of 2 months.
  • The 2nd place will earn 1 month.
  • The 3rd place will earn 1 month.

Nevertheless each 1st place of a division will get a special place in our Hall of Fame.

But that's not all: The first four places of the Premiership Division will get an exclusive ESL Major Series Season VIII slot. These teams will qualify automatically.
