CEVO Team Fortress 2 Season 6 Registration Opens

CEVO is pleased to announce the opening of registration for the next season of Team Fortress 2. Season 6 features three skill divisions: Professional, Main, and Amateur. Each has different entry parameters, competitive expectations, and prizes.


The regular event membership fee for the Professional and Main Divisions is $20 USD per player. However, any player who registers by midnight CST Friday, July 23rd will receive a discounted early bird rate of only $15 USD. Players may register for Season 6 without already being on a team.

Paid teams will be able to reserve premium quality game servers for their matches, courtesy of NuclearFallout!

Registration for CEVO Team Fortress 2 Season 6 opens on Sunday, July 11th at 7 PM CST and will remain open until Sunday, August 8th at midnight CST.

How To Register:

All players will need to register a personal CEVO user account to participate in CEVO events. If you do not already have one, click "register now" under the CEVO Members section of the website and follow the instructions.

Team Captains:

The Team Captain or Manager is responsible for registering their team for the event. Captains who have already created a team for another CEVO Team Fortress 2 event do not need to create a new team - you can simply join this event with your current team. To sign your current team up for this event, login to your personal user account then go to "teams"->"view my teams" (or click "Manage My Teams" on the main account page). Click on the "manage" link corresponding to your team and then click "Sign Team Up for a CEVO Event".

If you are a Team Captain needing to create a team, login to your personal user account then go to "teams"->"create a team" (or click "Create a Team" on the main account page).

Once the team is created/registered for the event, each team member may join the roster by logging into their personal user account on the website and clicking “Join A Roster”.

Team Players:

In order to join a roster, your team captain must have already registered your team for this event. Once that is done, to join the roster, login to your personal user account and click "teams"->"Join a Roster" (or simply click "Join a Roster" on the main account page).

On the Join Roster page, choose this event from the drop-down menu, then type all or part of the team name and click "Find Team". When the search finishes, click the "join" button corresponding to your team.

When you join a roster for a paid event, if you have not already paid your event membership fee, you will be prompted for payment. CEVO accepts VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, e-Check, or PayPal payments. All online payments are processed through PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay with a credit card through PayPal. If you would like to pay with a money order, please contact CEVO support for instructions.

To pay for a teammate’s account, please do so by logging into their personal account, or contact support for help.

Paying in Advance:

Players wishing to pay their event membership fee prior to joining a roster may do so at any time. Simply log into your personal user account and choose "join event" from the menu, or click "Register for an Event" on the main account page. From there you may choose the desired game and event from the options listed. Once your payment has been processed, you may join a roster any time prior to the start of the season as well as during roster unlock periods once the season has started.

Event Details:

The event will consist of three skill divisions, Professional (CEVO-P), Main (CEVO-M), and Amateur (CEVO-A).

The Professional Division (CEVO-P) will consist of the 16 most talented teams in North America. The teams for this division will consist of the top 4 teams from CEVO-P Season 5 in addition to the top 2 teams from CEVO-M Season 5 (if all 6 accept CEVO's invitation to compete). The other 10 spots be decided through a Professional Placement tournament. The teams competing in this tournament will be invited by CEVO to participate or can apply for a spot. More information regarding this tournament can be found at cevo.com in the TF2 event section.

The Professional Division has only one National region. Teams will be competing for at least $2,000.00 in guaranteed cash if the division is full. This prize pot may be supplemented by additional prizes and additional money from a full Main division.

Professional teams will play two matches per week on Monday and Thursday nights.

NOTE: If Exultance TF2 and Just 4 Fame decide to compete in this division, they will not have to pay entry fees. This is a consequence of their 1st and 2nd place finishes in CEVO-M S5 (payment of entry fees were their prizes).

The Main Division (CEVO-M) is also now a paid division with the same entry fee as Professional. It is open to teams on an invitation/application basis. The top 4 teams from CEVO-M Season 5 are invited to this division in addition to the top 3 teams of CEVO-A Season 5 (they are named as they were during the previous season):

Exultance TF2
Just 4 Fame
Focus Gaming TF2
United Gamers
22d
Knockout gaming
Mainline Gaming

If you feel that your team is of the caliber necessary to play in the Main division, you need to submit a Main application. If you are unfamiliar with this process, you need to follow these steps:

• Sign up your team in CEVO-Amateur
• Get a minimum of 5 roster players (@ready).
• Captains will then see a Main application under their Control Panel.
• Simply fill out the application and submit.
