No.5:

Configs

To execute configurations in serveme servers the server owner types in the developer console "rcon exec CONFIGNAME"
Config names are displayed next to the configs themselves.
5cp maps (etf2l_9v9_5cp)
- Time limit 30 minutes
- The team that has won more rounds (or first to 5 rounds) in 30 mins wins.
koth maps (etf2l_9v9_koth)
- Winlimit 3 (The first team that wins 3 rounds wins.)
Payload maps stopwatch (etf2l_9v9_stopwatch)
- 2 Rounds, both on attack and defense
- Team that had better time wins
If you see a team not playing with the right config try to make them change it, if the team does not want to change configs report the issue to the admin team. If the team is new try to explain how to change it, or ask for permissions.

No.6:

Mercs (Ringers)

Mercs are the players who fill for your team mates if they can’t play.
Mercs are not on your active roster.
Mercs should still obey all skill level rules as other players.
Teams can have up to 3 mercs per match, more than 3 and it’s considered a default loss.

Players of the same skill level as the division they are mercing in are considered as default mercs. 2 default mercs is the maximum amount of default mercs you can have. You're still allowed to have 1 more merc that has to be accepted by the enemy.

No.7:

Cheating

Cheating is strictly forbidden and will be dealt with.
If you suspect a player is cheating it’s best to send the demo to the admin team for analyzing.
If a player has had a VAC ban they can still play if:
1. The VAC was from another game
2.The player has learned from his mistake and has stopped cheating. (we don’t want someone not to be able to play because 3 years ago he thought it would be fun to troll players on casual)

No.8:

Rules during a match

All players should be ready to play within 15 minutes of the agreed on match time, but all of them must be ready within 15 minutes of the enemy team’s ready up.
Maximum of 3 mercs per match.
Having a screenshot of the end result and the demo of a match. (not 100% required for everyone, but we would like to have a demo and a screenshot of the scoreboard for each of the games that’s played).
Offensive language to teammates/enemies is forbidden. (will be dealt with regards of the number of times someone has been offensive and the thing that someone says)

No cheating.
If a team has to pause, use the pause command in the developer console.
A max. pause time of 5 minutes per map only.
By typing “pause” in the developer console the game stops and no unfair advantage could happen. (During season 1 a team didn’t pause properly so the other team built uber during a pause)

No.9:

After a match.

After a match players should contact admins because it’s hard to keep track of all the teams and everything.
We don’t know every player in your team so please send your scores via a screenshot and your team names so we can manually update the site.

If you have anything you wanted to ask about a match, maybe report someone for inappropriate behavior just send it directly to one of the admins or to #match-disputes in the discord server.
If someone forfeits before a match just say it to the admin providing a screenshot of the enemy captain forfeiting.

No.10:

match.tf

match.tf is a site admins use for organizing the tournaments.
All players are required to have a match.tf profile.
match.tf profile is made simply by logging in with your steam account.
After making your match.tf profile the team captain needs to invite all the teammates to the team and when you get a full team apply for the tournament.
