Classes 101: FAQ and What To Do
So you've signed up for Classes 101, and you're not sure what to do? Don't worry! Check to see if your question is answered below, and if you're still unsure about anything feel free to ask either erio or Caldoran!
What should I do beforehand?
You should install and set up Mumble! Not sure how? Check this guide!
What time should I show up?
You should be in Mumble by 7:30 PM GMT+8 on Saturday, 11th June! While we are unlikely to reject latecomers, the mentors will not be covering topics already gone through, so try to be on time.
What's going to happen?
Depending on the turnout on the day, you will be assigned to different "Classrooms" in the Mumble server. In each "Classroom", there will be a mentor.
These experienced mentors will be conducting lessons on how to play the Demoman class, covering things such as rollouts, positioning, game mechanics and more.
At the end of the lesson, you will get the chance to ask the mentors any questions you may have regarding the Demoman class in competitive. Don't be shy! Everyone was new at one point, and it won't hurt to clarify anything you're unsure of.
Due to the high number of people expected to turn up, there will be a large number of questions that the mentors will have to answer, so do wait for your turn! We recommend that you take down your questions somewhere so you do not forget!
After this FAQ session, there will be a short mix scrim session for you to play in a real competitive game. Your mentors will be observing the games, and will give pointers either during or after the game. After that, you may again ask any questions you have to the mentors.
Please understand that while we will try our best to give everyone a chance to play, you may not have the chance to due to an uneven amount of players. Don't be discouraged if you don't get to play - You can learn a lot from watching the games as well!
What happens after everything is over?
Feel free to add your mentors and ask them anything else you're unsure of! If you made any friends and liked playing with any of your fellow mentees/classmates, feel free to add them as well!
And if you're still hungry to learn more about competitive TF2, why not sign up for next week's classes as well?
I'm still unsure about something!

The Match Threads for the Upper Bracket and Lower Bracket matches are officially open, and teams can begin scheduling their matches! Click here for the Match Threads.
Congratulations to the teams Steal Your Job, Fireless, A Motley Crew, Club Penguin Crusaders, PSYCHOS, Kusoyotech and Team Intermediate for winning their first matches to claim their place in the Upper Bracket!

The tournament is far from over yet however, and all participants still have a chance to prove themselves as the Grand Champions of Mercenaries Cup 7!
Best of luck to all participants!
The team Shuffled.tf Inc. has announced their decision to drop out of the tournament to AsiaFortress Administrators, and has been removed from play. As a result, Edelweiss gets a walkover win for this week's matches and has automatically been advanced to Lower Bracket Round 2.
In accordance with the Mercenaries Cup 7 rules, Shuffled.tf Inc.'s leaders Novaroid and Insanity will be barred from leading any more teams in major AsiaFortress competitions until further notice.
A Reminder of the Rules
Following a breach in last week's matches which was met with a stern warning, the AsiaFortress administrators would like to remind all participating teams that mercenaries are allowed under the following conditions:
- It is clearly and honestly communicated to the other team who the mercenary is and why they are being used
- A mercenary cannot be used in place of an available rostered player
- Teams can only use up to 2 mercenaries in total during a regular season match
- No mercenaries are allowed during a playoff match (Semifinals, Lower Bracket Semifinals, Finals)
- The mercenary must be named together with his or her Steam ID when reporting or confirming results in the match thread
- "Alts", "smurfs" and other ways of concealing identity are prohibited and will be dealt with harshly.
The Rules can be found here, and all teams are reminded once again that ignorance of the rules will not be taken as an excuse for a breach.
Teams are also reminded to post in the Match Threads the date, time and server used for the match upon scheduling with the opposing team's leader. Booking a server is recommended to avoid a situation where servers could not be found to play on.
After playing a match, teams are to post the final scores along with screenshots of the final scoreboard or links to the match logs on logs.tf.
Best of luck to all teams!
