Join Up

To participate in Season 2, simply head on over to the Team Creation page, and create a new Ultiduo team. Once that’s done, and you’ve got two members on your team, set your team as Ready. (note: you must sign in before accessing the page)

PS. We know it’s no longer Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy a little down and dirty Soldier on Medic fun, does it?

  • Sidular

    Just a general reminder for those of you creating your first Ultiduo team.
    You’ll need to sign into TFCL using your Steam account before you are able to access the team creation page. So if you haven’t already, be sure to sign in with Steam by clicking the green button at the very top of every page.

  • Sidular

    Fixed the team creation link. Sorry about that guys.

  • V!s

    When is the deadline for the signups. Also, where are the servers located, on the twitch I saw NA ultiduo.

    • Sidular

      Deadline is March 22nd.
      TFCL will not be providing servers for this tournament, though we require that all servers are based in North America. You’re of course welcome to play and compete from other parts of the world, but you will be at a pretty major ping disadvantage.

  • Sidular

    Hey guys. Remember, if you want to compete in Ultiduo Season 2, you will need to set your team as “Ready” from your team page. If your team isn’t Ready, it will not be entered into the season, and you will not get to compete.

  • lol

    we can make a team until march 24 ?

  • lol

    we will play all on NA servers ? even if im european ?

    • Sidular

      Yes, that is unfortunately how it’ll work for this tournament.
      TFCL still doesn’t officially support EU, though since a lot of teams were signing up from EU, we figured we’d just add EU as a region so they don’t have to lie about their location.
      From the FAQ page – http://tfcleague.com/faq/

      “Q. Where is TFCL available?
      A. Officially, we are available to players from the United States and Canada.

      Q. I don’t live in North America. Can I still play?
      A. Yup, of course you can! Though it’s worth mentioning that not all prizes are available internationally, so if you end up winning a tournament, you may not actually win a prize. Plus, you’ll be playing on NA servers, so you’ll be at a ping disadvantage.”

    • Sidular

      Also, the registration deadline is March 22nd.

  • The Coffee Cup

    how do I change my teams region?

    • Sidular

      Which team would you like to change, and to which region?
      At this time, region changing can only be done by an admin.

      • The Coffee Cup

        TheRagingMedics and I need it to be central North American

        • Sidular

          Done.

          • The Coffee Cup

            another question: can I or you manually add a friend to my team.(team is TheRagingmedics)

          • Sidular

            Nope, team joining can only be done via the join password. You’ll need to give your friend the password, and ask him to join manually.

  • Tonceitoys

    I’m new to this but.. if TFCL doesn’t provide the servers, how do we get to play on match day? Do any of the two teams provide the servers? And if my team needs to get a server, how do we do it?

    • Sidular

      One of the two teams will need to rent or reserve a server for their match. If neither team has a server, you can get one for free from http://serveme.tf/
      TFCL also has 5 servers on reserve, though we only grant them out on a first come, first serve basis. If you need to use one of our servers, just post to the match comms, and we’ll provide you with one, assuming one is available for your time slot.

  • V!s

    Hey, It’s me again 😀 I wonder, since we are from EU, is there a way we can reschedule the matches for 1-2 hours earlier, because it really doesn’t suit us 6 EDT (aka 11 cet, usually the time when we sleep :D) Also, if we get to play against EU team, why is it a problem to play in EU server?

  • The Coffee Cup

    I have to skip out this year, but can I still use my team for season 3?

    • Sidular

      Of course! Once a team is created, it is never deleted. Just get a roster and ready up once the next season starts.

  • V!s

    Also ! 😀 Can I swap my teammate, my old one said he can’t play just a day ago, and I have another guy who can replace him, though our matches are already set with certain teammates? :/

    • Sidular

      Yeah, of course! 😀
      Just tell your new teammate your join pass, and you’re good to go. Just be sure to keep your roster above the minimum of 2 active players, and you shouldn’t run into any conflicts.

  • Zystem

    How do we know if we sign up in time? , we created and ready up the team yesterday at night

    • Sidular

      Unfortunately, the deadline for registration was set to 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time on March 22nd. Your team, Tacuachines, was created at 2:17 AM on March 23rd.

      I can add you to the current season, but you will have to sit out the first week. Let me know if you want that.

      • Zystem

        That will be great !!,we just want to participate . We need to do something ? or just wait till next week?

        • Sidular

          What is your team name and/or ID?

          • Zystem

            Im kinda not sure what you mean with ID , but i guess this is our team name : Tacuachines , and our team page is http://tfcleague.com/team/ud/tacuachines/

          • Sidular

            Got it. I’ve added you to the Ultiduo season. You won’t be able to compete this week, so your first match will be next Saturday.

            Good luck! 😀

  • Gavin

    hello if i created a team but forgot to ready up, does that mean my team does not enter into this season

    • Sidular

      We’ll allow a limited number of teams into the season. Just tell me your team name, and I’ll throw you into the mix.
      You won’t be able to play this week, but you can for week 2.

      • Gavin

        Thank You So much for the help. My team name is the TheFedoraFellows. Thanks so much

        • Sidular

          Done. Good luck with your season!

  • Brian Mahaffey

    Hey! Me and my friend on the team “dodo-buddies” (http://tfcleague.com/team/ud/dodo-buddies/) didn’t know the deadline and I think we signed up too late. Is it cool if you could add us to the season? We’ll sit out if we need to.

    • Sidular

      Done. You’ll have to sit out round 1 (today) but should be scheduled in for next Saturday.

  • ThePotatoTank

    I was wondering how the streams work, any help?

  • Adam Zlámal

    How do we join our match? We got no instructions.

    • Sidular

      The home team is responsible for providing a match server. If they’re unable to do so, then the away team should try to provide the server.
      If neither team can provide a server, we recommend using serveme.tf to reserve one.

      • Adam Zlámal

        I reserved a server, how do i join?

        • Sidular

          You’ll want to follow the instructions provided by serveme.tf.
          Once you’re on the server, you’ll need to do the following two commands when signed into rcon.

          rcon changelevel ultiduo_baloo_v2
          rcon exec tfcl_ultiduo_standard

          If the level doesn’t automatically reload when you exec the configuration file, you’ll need to enter the first command into the console again.

          • Adam Zlámal

            We already set the server up, but the other team’s members are both offline, so I can’t make them join. They should be disqualified.

          • Sidular

            Alright, sure thing. What is your team and match ID? (the number at the end of the url)

          • Adam Zlámal

            Team name is BUZZIALFONSO and the match ID is 935. I’m pretty disappointed by this… 🙁

          • Adam Zlámal

            Thank you

          • Sidular

            Got it. I gave you guys the ffw.

            And yeah, it’s pretty unfortunate when stuff like this happens. But not much anyone can do. It’s up to the team leaders to properly run and manage their teams, and if they fail to do so, then they’ll be forfeited. It’s pretty straightforward.

  • Adam Zlámal

    Both teams we are supposed to play with are separated, so they don’t have enough players.

    • Sidular

      Please post to the match comms for your two matches. We’ll keep track of it there, and issue a ffw if needed.

  • Zystem

    How do i report a team refusing to play or communicate?

    Match ID : 1109 . http://tfcleague.com/match/1109/

    • Sidular

      Post to the match comms with any relevant information. If the other team makes no effort to play the match, and you’ve recorded that via the match comms, we’ll give you the ffw.

  • Gwalk

    if a team is not responding and dont play at normal time, when i post the match comms and reasoning do i summit a match score as 1-0 or just leave it blank?

  • Adam Zlámal

    Players from other team are both offline… again.

    • Sidular

      Please post to the match comms if you haven’t already. Try to work it out there, and if the other team is unable to play their match, report that in the comms.
      I also recommend adding the other team leaders, if you haven’t already. Work something out privately just in case they need to reschedule the match. If nothing can be worked out between your two teams, you’ll receive the ffw.
