    New Rules, New Format, New AsiaFortress

    Hey everyone, as we gear up for the upcoming season, we would like to inform you about the exciting changes in the format and rules that we have made.

    Team Slot Binding to the Team Captain
    To enhance flexibility and provide teams with options in case of disbandment, we have implemented a new rule where team slots will be transferable to another team. If a team decides to disband, the team captain has the authority to transfer the slot to another eligible team, ensuring that the tournament's competitive spirit remains intact. We understand that circumstances change, and we aim to provide opportunities for teams to continue their journey toward victory.


    Qualifiers Format
    During the qualifiers, the team that loses a map will have the privilege of picking the subsequent map. Qualifiers will take place over two weekends, with Day 1 and Day 2 scheduled on Saturday and Sunday respectively. The format includes a BO1 (Best of 1) set map for the first round, followed by BO3 (Best of 3) matches for the losers in a double-elimination format. For the first season, we will be taking 6 teams from qualifiers to be promoted to invite. Adapt, strategize, and secure your spot in the main event!


    Qualifiers Schedule
    Day 1 (Saturday): BO1 Set Map + Lower Bracket BO3
    Day 2 (Sunday): Upper Bracket BO3 + Lower Bracket BO3
    Day 3 (Saturday, the following week): Upper Bracket BO3 + Lower Bracket BO3
    Day 4 (Sunday, the following week): Upper Bracket BO3 + Lower Bracket BO3


    Invite Format
    For the invite stage, the top seed in the invite stage will have the privilege of picking the first map, and subsequent maps will be chosen by the losing team. The invite stage will feature a double-elimination format throughout. At the end of the season the bottom 4 invite teams will be relegated back into qualifiers.

    Invite Schedule
    Invite will take place the following week upon the qualifying teams being decided. The tournament will run for 6 weeks and games will be played on Friday and Saturday with 2 games being played per day.


    B4nny Config Usage
    Moving into the new season, we will be using the B4nny config for all games in the qualifiers and invite as we feel that it enhances the competitive and viewing experience.


    Match Suspensions for Inappropriate Behavior
    We take sportsmanship and fair play seriously. Any instances of inappropriate behavior will result in match suspensions being issued. Let's keep the competition focused on skill, teamwork, and respect for one another.


    Team Logos, Webcams and Player Pictures
    For teams making it to the invite stage, we kindly request the submission of team logos to enhance the tournament's visual appeal. While webcams are optional, they are preferred for a more immersive viewing experience. Let your team's identity shine and captivate the audience! We are also making it mandatory for players in invite to send shoulder-up pictures to be used for static stream graphics (detailed information will be provided at a later date).


    Every Game Will Be Casted!
    We are delighted to announce that every single game of the tournament in invite will be casted! Our talented casters will provide exciting commentary and analysis, bringing the matches to life for both the participants and the viewers. Prepare to showcase your skills on the grand stage!

    AsiaFortress Cup 20

    [Rules] [Unlocks] [Division Administrators] [Key Dates and Map Pool]

    AsiaFortress is back with the second season of 2022! This season, the AsiaFortress Administrators have in store some new changes to the competing format that will hopefully reinvigorate the upper echelons of the player base. Make sure to read through these changes clearly, especially for teams that are signing up for Divisions 1 and 2.

    Format changes for Divisions 1 and 2
    The AsiaFortress league is built on the shoulders of its top players, and the AsiaFortress Administrators want to continue fostering talent that can play at a high level. However, this has, in the past, come at the cost of pushing teams that sign up for Division 2 into a whole different skill bracket.

    While we want to continue encouraging players to move up the divisional ladder, we want to introduce changes that will hopefully make the transition smoother.

    For AsiaFortress Cup 20, Divisions 1 and 2 will be a combined divisional bracket. However, this will only take place during playoffs.

    Division 1 will continue to remain an invite-only, top-skill division for the best that the region has to offer. These teams are guaranteed a playoff spot, which means that these matches are for seeding purposes.

    Division 2 on the other hand, will play the usual 7-week regular season, at which point the division will conclude, and the divisions standings (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so forth) will be decided. The top 2 teams from the division will be placed into a combined playoffs with Division 1 teams, where they will be given the opportunity to play against the best teams in the region, and earn further accolades.

    Teams in Division 3 are not affected in any way by these changes.

    We hope that these changes will allow teams to play within their margin of skill, whilst continuously allowing better Division 2 teams to test their mettle without disrupting the entirety of a season.

    Signups for AsiaFortress Cup 20 will be open here until 24th June 2022, with seedings and season opening on 26th June and 27th June respectively.


    AsiaFortress Cup 19

    [Rules] [Unlocks] [Division Administrators] [Key Dates and Map Pool]

    It has come to the attention of the AsiaFortress Administrators that Division 2 team no one down has been account sharing. The account in question, flower, has been used by another player, BIRDFLY, in AsiaFortress matches to conceal their identity.


    As stated in Section 5B of the rules, account sharing is strictly prohibited.

    Players flower and BIRDFLY, in violation of Rule 5B, will receive a 1 season ban from AsiaFortress Cup 20.

    Captain of team no one down, Syndrome Legacy, will receive a 1 season captain ban from AsiaFortress Cup 20.

    no one down, having account shared during AsiaFortress matches, are disqualified from AsiaFortress Cup 19, with their previous results invalidated. Placements for Division 2 will be shifted up accordingly, with the final top 3 placements being as such:

    1st: Fight Club

    2nd: taiwangirls

    3rd: wafly


    The AsiaFortress Administrators would like to remind everyone that fair and responsible play keeps the game fun for everyone, and urge players to act in accordance of the AsiaFortress Rules.
