Teams decide together which server to play the match on. Server rentals from serveme.tf are recommended. Please ensure the correct config/whitelist is used.
If your match is to be casted live on twitch.tv/essentialstf, the server details will be provided to you by the tournament administrators.
All matches are to be played with the ETF2L Configs (etf2l_6v6_5cp & etf2l_6v6_koth) and the latest version of the ETF2L item whitelist. Golden cap rounds have a different ruleset (see rule 6.3/6.6 on our Toornament pages).
Golden cap is used for all matches in playoffs. Golden cap has a 10 minutes time limit. If no team has captured the last point from the enemy team by 10 minutes the team holding mid wins the golden cap round.
If opponents agree, teams are allowed to use a maximum of 2 mercs who are not on the Toornament roster. (rule 3.5/3.7)
For Newcomers, we have limited the main roster size to 6 as any prize payout will be sent to each individual player. By limiting this to 6, we can ensure fair payouts to the primary players.
