UTPL Season 1 – Format and Rules

Playday

On a playday, each team plays a clanwar consisting of 5 matches within a timeslot (1 timeslot per team per playday) in this order:

  1. TDM 4on4 #1
    • Best-of-One & Time Limit 15
  2. TDM 4on4 #2
    • Best-of-One & Time Limit 15
  3. TDM 2on2
    • Best-of-Three & Time Limit 15
  4. Duel #1
    • Best-of-Three & Time Limit 10
  5. Duel #2
    • Best-of-Three & Time Limit 10
  • Each match will provide 1 point to the winner. Hence, on every playday, a team can earn between 0 and 5 points.
  • Every player must not play more than 2 game modes (Duel, 2on2, 4on4) per playday. Additionally, no player is allowed to play more than 1 duel match.

 

Lineups
  • Handing in the lineup must happen before the Tuesday at 21:00 – 21:30 CEST/CET preceding the respective playday (Saturday for Challenger Division; Sunday for the Epic Division).
  • Mapvoting must happen before the Wednesday at 21:00 – 21:30 CEST/CET preceding the respective playday (Saturday for Challenger Division; Sunday for the Epic Division).
  • At least one representative of each team will have to be present. If no representative of a team shows up, the other team can decide on all mappicks.
  • Before map voting , both teams must provide their lineups and internal duel seeds to one of the cup organizers (and remain secretive to the opposing team until mapvoting begins). The #1 seeded duel player of one team will play the #1 seeded duel player of the other team and accordingly with seed #2. Seeds in UTPL season 1 are subjective and can be altered by the teams for every playday.

 

Mapvote
  • For the TDM 4on4 maps/matches combined, the teams use the following map voting rules:
    1. BAN (higher ranked team)
    2. BAN (lower ranked team)
    3. PICK (higher ranked team) = first map/match
    4. PICK (lower ranked team) = second map/match
  • For EACH of the Duel and TDM 2on2 matches, the teams use the following map voting rules:
    1. BAN (higher ranked team)
    2. BAN (lower ranked team)
    3. PICK (higher ranked team) = first map
    4. PICK  lower ranked team) = second map
    5. BAN (higher ranked team)
    6. PICK (lower ranked team) = decider map
  • Each team may consist of a maximum of 6 players. Players can be added during a season until the maximum number is reached. After that, new players (who have not yet played during the current season) may be switched into the team when another one is switched out (and the switched out player cannot enter another team during the season).
