It's the end of the Enemy Territory EuroCup XXIII qualifier week, and time to announce the groups for this season.
As stated previously the group stage will be composed of 4 teams per group, with 4 groups in total, for 16 participating teams combined.
The top 2 teams from each group will advance to the playoffs which will be played using the double elimination format. The playoff tree will be announced shortly after the group stage is over.
The groups have been officially published and consist of six divisions with 4 groups in the Premiere to Third division and 8 groups in the remaining divisions. All groups have 4 teams, thus resulting in 144 teams this OpenCup.
The group format has been dramatically changed from previous seasons by decreasing the size of the top divisions, thus not only increasing the prestige and skill in each division, but also allowing them to use the double elimination format in the playoffs.
The top 2 teams from each group will advance to the playoffs which will be played using the double elimination format from the Premiere to Third and the single elimination format for the remaining divisions. The playoff tree will be announced shortly after the group stage is over.
11.04.2011 - 18.04.2011 : First Matchweek
18.04.2011 - 25.04.2011 : Second Matchweek
25.04.2011 - 02.05.2011 : Third Matchweek
Be sure to challenge your opponents as soon as possible; not doing so will lead to forced matches.
During each matchweek two different maps will be played:
First matchweek: sw_goldrush_te/bremen_b3
Second matchweek: radar/karsiah_te2
Third matchweek: supply/adlernest
ClanBase Enemy Territory wishes the best of luck to all participating teams!
