    As indicated in the previous post, three Division 3 teams have been disqualified due to continued ignorance of rules and warnings even when given excessive leniency. But moving on, what an exciting time for Division 3 teams!

    You've entered your first season of AsiaFortress Cup,

    and it just so happens that the rest of your division have decided to grant you a free ticket to the playoffs! What a time to be alive. Screw the Gun Mettle ticket, this is where the real money is made!

    So what happens now?

    The match between Backcappers and Beyond Velocity can still be played this Saturday as it can affect Playoff seedings. However, if both teams agree to immediately proceed with Playoffs instead, seeding will take the current standings as is.

    But Sir Shounio what does the Playoffs mean?

    The Playoffs follow the Round Robin Group Stages because it takes the top 4 from the previous phase and pits them against each other to find who slots into the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placings.

    Playoff matches are also different because teams are actually allowed to pick what maps to play! and you called this a dictatorship... That means you'll never have to play Logjam ever again!

    One more thing to note is that the Playoffs DO NOT permit Mercenaries. Whether the Regular Season match this Saturday is played or not, Division 3 Playoffs will start NEXT WEEK 27th of July, so if you wish to add more players or substitutes to your team, the rest of this week is your only chance.

    Also since they're Playoff Matches, please try not to play at the same time as each other so we can actually cast them.

    That's it! Good Luck to you aspiring young nerds in Division 3 - and may the demos upload smoothly!


    As many have noticed, this season of AsiaFortress Cup 9 matches have been posted to Saloon.tf even without the presence of casting. The relationship between AsiaFortress and Saloon is taken seriously, and as such we have to take action when someone violates Saloon.tf's rules and regulations. 
    On July 5th, the Round 2 Match between Cute Beast and Bali 9 was played on 8pm GMT+8. The Saloon.tf records indicated that the team leader of Bali 9 had bet in favor of Cute Beasts' victory and thus in violation of AsiaFortress' warnings to team leaders in division 1 in regards to betting on Saloon.tf and Saloon.tf's own rules.
    For this infraction, player Gooch is banned from the current tournament (AFC9) until playoffs which means that he is not allowed to participate in any league matches in the group stages. Further investigation indicated that Gooch was the only player who partook in this activity, as a result team Bali 9 will be allowed to finish the AFC9 Season and allowed to add players to their roster if they wish to do so.
    I would remind any Division 1 players to not bet on AsiaFortress Saloon.tf matches to avoid bans from the league.
