    [Rules] [Unlocks] [Division Administrators] [Map Pool]

    We're back for 2021! Amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that everyone in the community has been staying safe.

    Ready for another season? So are we! This season, we're trying new maps, plugins to make the 6s experience the best it can be.

    Maps: Refresh Project

    The Refresh Project is a competitive take on some of the game's most popular competitive maps. AsiaFortress Cup 17 will be running the refreshed versions of both Process(cp_process_f7) and Gullywash(cp_gullywash_f3)

    Maps: 2 Koth Maps?

    Furthermore, this season, we will be including Clearcut (koth_clearcut_b15d), introducing for the first time ever, a second KOTH map in our rotation.

    Plugins

    We've been behind other league in incorporating these Quality-of-Life plugins into competitive play, but this season AsiaFortress Cup 17 will be providing support for the following plugins:

    - Ramp slides fix: Prevents players from stopping when sliding off ramps
    - Projectiles Collision: Prevent projectiles from being blocked by teammates
    - Consistent Fall Damage: Removes randomness present in TF2's fall damage

    match.tf

    Once again, AsiaFortress Cup 17 will be run through match.tf. We think that the system so far has been rather intuitive and convenient for old and new players alike, and will continue to use it. However, please do make sure to join the AsiaFortress Discord and check the AsiaFortress site as all league news will be posted on both of these platforms.

    Signups, found here, are open until 7th March 2021 2359PM GMT+8, so sign up ASAP!

    Happy New Year everyone! With the new year upon us, we’re back with the 16th installment of the AsiaFortress Cup. This year we’re determined not to start three months late, and thus here we are!

     

    Map Pool and Whitelist

    Each season, the league aims to keep the map pool exciting by rotating and bringing in new maps. Last season, cp_propaganda_b14 was not the most well-received maps. Therefore, this season, we’re letting everyone vote for the last map that will go into the AsiaFortress Cup 16 map pool.

     

    The poll will feature one experimental map that has not been played in AsiaFortress since its initial release during Mercenary Cup 6, cp_logjam, as well as refreshed old maps like cp_prolands and cp_granary_pro. Players vote for the map they would like to see in the AsiaFortress Cup 16 map pool here. Polling with close together with signups.

     

    Pending Rule Updates

    As of this post, the AsiaFortress Administrators are still looking over the ruleset, striving to create a stronger and fairer set of rules. We urge teams, especially team leaders to keep a look out for any changes made, and thank everyone for their patience while we look through them!

     

    Match.tf

    Continuing from last season, AsiaFortress Cup 16 will be run on match.tf. With one season under our belt, the AsiaFortress Administrators aim to provide an even smoother tournament experience this season!

     

    Teams can sign up for the tournament through match.tf here! Signups will end on 2nd February 2020.

    Hi everyone, as the title says, AsiaFortress is looking for willing community members to assist in the upcoming AsiaFortress Cup 16.

     

    For the past 15 seasons, AsiaFortress has continued to rely on the efforts of people who have stepped up to the task of making this community a better place. Before I dive into the recruitment details, I would like to thank every single person who has contributed in some way to put the league where it is today. Unfortunately, this also includes the various AsiaFortress Administrators who have recently departed their duties due to external commitments. For some, despite having long left their competitive Team Fortress 2 days behind, continued to serve as advisors to myself, and stepping up to leadership positions in a community they no longer actively benefited from. Fearing I will leave some people out, I will refrain from naming every single one of them (there are too many to count), but I have the utmost gratitude and respect for all of them.

     

    As such, AsiaFortress is currently facing a shortage of manpower, even more so than before. Therefore, we are once again looking to the community for members whom these past administrators may pass the baton to.

     

    The foundation of the AsiaFortress Cup lies in its Division Adminstrators. These are the people to turn to for any questions regarding the league. During the tournament, they are responsible for enforcing the rules, and ensuring match disputes are judged and dealt with in a fair manner.

     

    We are looking for disciplined individuals who are strong and willing communicators to take up this position.

     

    If you are interested, please fill out the form here.

     

    Applications will close on the 29th of December!

    AsiaFortress Cup 15

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

     

     

    After a painstaking three month delay, we welcome everyone back to the fifteenth installment of the AsiaFortress Cup!

    Having made huge changes, make sure all of you read to the end of the post to ensure you don't miss anything out. With that, let's kick start the list of changes.

    Map Pool and Whitelist Updates
    To keep the map pool fresh season after season, we want to keep experimenting with new maps. Therefore, this season, we are introducing cp_propaganda_b14! We will also be welcoming back to the map pool, an updated cp_reckoner_rc4a which hasn't been played since AFC11. Make sure to start practicing these maps. In their place, cp_sunshine and cp_granary_pro2 have been removed from the mappool.
    Whitelist changes are inclusive of the banning of both The Scorch Shot and the Detonator, in accordance with the global whitelist update. Other than that, there will be no major changes to the whitelist.

    Migration to Match.tf
    We are always trying to improve user experience and with the gracious provision of match.tf services, we are experimenting on doing just that. For AsiaFortress Cup 15, the match system will be ported over to match.tf! We hope this will allow for a smoother registration and score submission process for both present and future seasons.
    To sign up on match.tf:
    1) Ensure all of your team members have a match.tf account
    2) Create a team on match.tf here
    3) Add players to your team
    4) Head over here, to sign your team up
    Signups are open until the 24th of March!

    Roster sizes are still limited to 10 players, with a minimum of 6 players required to sign up. Captain bans and player bans found on the list here still apply.

    Do note that as this is our first season utilizing the match.tf system, technical difficulties are bound to happen. We ask for your understanding as the AsiaFortress Admins learn and fine-tune the system. Thank you.

    So what are all of you waiting for, head over to match.tf to sign up now!

    Happy New Year everyone! As we enter 2019, the AsiaFortress Administrators have big news so make sure to read the entire announcement.

    Firstly, our friends at serveme.tf have graciously provided us their services and you may now visit their site to book servers for scrims/future matches.

    Secondly, a new mumble server is available for everyone to use. The details for the server are as follow:
    IP: fwishy.me
    Port: 64738
    The server is publicly available. However, to request for a private channel, follow the instructions given in the #mumble-queries text channel on our discord. The channel will also serve as a communication point should the server crash.
    The IP (35.198.221.251:27015) is also tied to an MGE server called "The Aquarium". Looking to expand to SOAPDM in the future.

    Finally and most importantly, we have set up a crowd fundraiser to make up for the costs community member Rednexela bore by spearheading the organization of AFLAN18. Make sure to donate if you enjoyed the event and want to make up for the deficit! Donate here.

    The AsiaFortress Administrators would like to thank everyone for another great year of competitive TF2 and we hope to see everyone in 2019. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming AsiaFortress Cup 15 announcement.
