Season Format
This seasons format will feature 8 regular weeks with 3 weeks of playoffs (2 playoff weeks and Grand Finals). Once again, Asia will not be participating in playoffs. There will be a fulltime rosterlock before the default match day of Week 7.

Team Placements
Team placements are underway. Please be patient, all teams will be placed before the start of the season. Remember that you need 6 people on your roster to be considered for placement! If your team is not yet placed into a skill division please submit a division change request from your leader panel.

Reminder to All New and Returning Teams
After you have been placed into a division and have at least 6 players on your roster, don’t forget to set your team to Ready in your leader panel to be scheduled for matches!

Changes to Division Alignments and Structure
This season Europe will only have one division to compete in.

New Roster Cooldown Features
Season 23 will see the introduction of some new features, as requested by our top players, regarding rosters.
New roster rules (applies to all TF2 formats): Effective Midnight (EST) of Week 1
1.) Players may join 1 team in each format per 8 day period. The 18 hour roster cooldown timer still applies to roster joins.
2.) Teams may accept no more than 3 players to their roster in an 8 day period. A player that left your roster and wants to rejoin will still count against that limit of 3 per 8 days.

1.) Prior to the effective date, players may move around freely and teams can accept as many new players as they want. These new rules will be in effect starting at Midnight (EST) of Week 1 default match day and will remain in effect throughout the active season.
2.) Teams sitting in one of the Regional *New Teams divisions are exempt from all aspects of these rules while they reside in that division.

Map Rotation and Whitelist
We will continue to participate in the global whitelist. Maps will be announced by the time week 1 schedules are released.

Chat Support
Our league's Chat Support is held over the Discord application.
If you are logged in as a player or leader, this support option is on your menu. We've also embedded the Discord widget on this page.
