    AsiaFortress Cup 19

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

    Hey everyone, due to some administrative errors on our end during seeding, team no one down was incorrectly placed in Division 1. This decision has since been altered, with the team being placed in Division 2 instead. However, because of this, there are some scheduling changes that have to be made to accommodate the moving.

    Division 1

    Division 1 will now be played in an 8-week round robin format, with each of the five teams facing each other twice. The maps for the final 8th week will be decided through a pick-ban format. This change primarily affects Division 1, and the Key Dates and Map Pool have been updated to reflect this.

    We apologise if this has caused any unneeded confusion or inconvenience and seek the understanding of all players involved.

    Division Allocations for AsiaFortress Cup 19 have been released! You may confirm the division that your team has been placed in on match.tf. Due to the signup numbers, we were unable to accommodate a Division 4 this season.

    Some final notes to take into account before the season officially starts tomorrow include the following:

    Small adjustment in playoffs Pick-Ban format

    Because of AsiaFortress Cup 19's larger map pool, we have modified the way in which playoff teams pick and ban maps to play. Notably, an additional ban wave is added before teams alternate picks. An example of what this new format looks like is shown below:

    1. Home Team banned cp_badlands
    2. Away Team banned cp_gullywash_final1
    3. Away Team picked cp_process_final
    4. Home Team picked koth_product
    5. Home Team banned cp_snakewater_final1
    6. Away Team banned cp_reckoner
    7. Home Team picked koth_clearcut
    8. Away Team picked cp_propaganda_b14
    9. Away Team picked cp_granary_pro

    8 and 9 only apply to BO5 series

    As always, the order in which teams pick and ban maps will be clearly stated on the match.tf thread when the playoffs come around.

    Division 1 Map Cycle

    Due to Division 1 having only 6 teams, each map in the 10-map pool will only be played once, with matchups going in a round-robin format. Teams in the division are to take note of the altered schedule on the Key Dates and Map Pool thread

    We’re back! Signups for the 19th iteration of the AsiaFortress Cup are now open, with a scheduled early January season opening.


    For the first season of the year, we’ve made some new changes to the map pool to keep both the regular and postseason experience fresh for newbies and veterans alike.


    Expanded Map Pool

    The AsiaFortress Cup 19 map pool will consist of TEN total maps! A blend of familiarity in seasoned AsiaFortress Cup maps like cp_reckoner, as well as new additions, like the recently refreshed cp_metalworks, we hope that the AsiaFortress Cup 19 map pool incentivises the play of maps outside of the staple few.


    The 7-week regular season will, however, still remain as it has been. Check out the Key Dates and Map Pool thread for more information about how the maps will be scheduled!



    Like previous iterations of the league, AsiaFortress Cup 19 will continue to use match.tf as its primary platform for score management.

    On the other hand, both the asiafortress.com website as well as the AsiaFortress Discord will be used for any important announcements throughout the season, so be sure to keep up with both of them!

    Signups will be open here until 31st December 2359PM GMT+8. We look forward to seeing you in AsiaFortress Cup 19!


    The AsiaFortress Administrators would like to notify everyone of a rule change. Specifically Rule 4b, regarding mercenaries:

    • Mercenaries may be chosen without the consent of the other team if they are registered in a team participating in a lower division.

    We have received feedback that this clause written leaves room for it to be utilised in an unintended manner. Therefore, in an effort to police mercenaries employed through this method, we ask that competitors seek administrative approval for mercenaries from lower divisions.

    Rule Change under Rule 4b

    • Mercenaries may be chosen without the consent of the other team if they are registered in a team participating in a lower division. This must be accompanied with the approval of any Division Manager.

    We hope that this change reaffirms our stance on mercenaries in play for teams in the AsiaFortress Cup, and promotes fairer, integral play amongst teams.


    It has come to the attention of the AsiaFortress Administrators that player ikeinn of team Apex Legend is a smurf account used by kosina, a player that has previously played in higher levels of competition. The AsiaFortress Administrators believe that the account was used to conceal the identity of said player, allowing them to participate in a lower division than their team's roster would reflect.


    As stated in Section 5B of the rules, alternate accounts used for the following purposes are strictly prohibited:

    - disguise one's identity to play in a division lower than their actual skill

    - participate on another team in the same competition

    kosina, in violation of Rule 5B, will receive a 1 season ban from AsiaFortress Cup 18.

    Apex Legend, having received an unfair advantage by having player kosina on it, will have their matches involving the banned player overturned.
