    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.



    It is with great sadness today that the AsiaFortress Administrators are announcing that player 26 of team GlobalClan XIAO has been caught red-handed on a smurf account used to play in AsiaFortress matches.

    This is the 6th AsiaFortress player that has been caught in the act of smurfing in recent history. As such, the AsiaFortress Administrators have decided to take more drastic measures to curb the smurfing problem in future seasons of the league.

    26 is well known for playing the Pocket Soldier role on GlobalClan XIAO, the greatest AsiaFortress team of all time. While a well-respected and competent player, his actions cannot go unpunished,  lest he continue to taint the future generations of AsiaFortress with his influence.

    Thus, he shall be exiled to a new, separate division in AsiaFortress know as the Smurf Division. In light of his achievements as a well-decorated Team Fortress 2 player, 26 shall be granted the eternal punishment as the King of the Smurfs, governing this newly crowned AsiaFortress division.

    From AsiaFortress Cup 20, players caught using smurf accounts will be banished forever to The Land of the Smurfs, where only the horrors of competitive 6s await. Pyros to mid, no weapon restrictions, and of course, the map pool. The Land of the Smurfs hates fun, and only the least fun of the tried and tested Team Fortress 2 maps are played there. cp_propaganda, cp_badlands, cp_granary, you name it. Whether you're perpetually playing on 30 frames, stuck on last for 30 minutes, or getting hit by 30 projectiles all at the same time, The Land of the Smurfs surely has something, to ruin your fun.

    The AsiaFortress Administrators would like to remind everyone to participate in fair competition, to ensure that the game remains fun for everyone. We hope that these new measures put in place will deter the use of smurf accounts across the league.

    Hey everyone, it has been made known to AsiaFortress Administrators that well-known modifications of the HUD to gain in-game advantages have recently resurfaced. Heading into playoffs, the AsiaFortress Administrators would like to remind everyone that the sniper scope removal, and other HUD modifications of that nature are strictly prohibited. Players caught using these modifications to obtain unfair advantages will receive appropriate punishments.
