What are the Staffcups and Gaming with TA?

The Staffcups are tournaments where only admins can participate. There is one Staffcup each month with a different game and an additional cup with a fix game every 2nd month. The cups for the first half of the year will be planned in January and in June for the second one.

The Staffcup will normally be played in the last week of the month. The ones with the fix games every 2nd month in the 2nd week. The games will be announced in an adminnews and all interested admins can vote for their favorite game/day(s) in the selected calenderweek. Around five days before the CW the date and cuplink will be added to the adminnews. All you have to do then is join the cup, check in at the cupdate and have fun ;).


Gaming with TA are hours of joy and fun with your favourite TAs (previously known as CMs)! During which you can meet every member closer, ask what's his favourite food, music or game, maybe you have simillar interests after all!.

There will be one of such nights every few months with different TAs and games. Because TAs are busy people, we will try to find optimal date for their schedule and game that they have, know or enjoy playing. Before any of the nights we will inform about this week prior in our Discord channel.
