Team Fortress 2

(Poster by the TFNew artist team: KortexTF, Their Dentist, Virgonaly and Bran)

TFNew is an EU tournament and mentoring program for players new to competitive TF2 (maximum 2 seasons of experience, and nowhere above Open level). You do not need to have a team to play, simply sign up on your own (or with 1 buddy, if you'd rather learn with someone you already know) and you will be put onto a team of 6 main players plus potentially some substitutes.


For the next 2 weeks after you've been put on a team, you will practice with them and receive mentoring from your team's assigned coaches at prearranged times. On the weekend of March 8th-10th, teams will go into a group stage and then a double elimination playoff bracket to see which team will come out on top! Some matches may also be casted!


The goal of the cup is for players to learn the ropes of competitive TF2 while playing in a tournament with other newbies and learning from their coaches in a low-pressure environment, but there are rewards for just participating! Playing will earn you an in-game medal cosmetic as well as raffle entries into a giveaway of TF2 items!


Registration closes on February 22nd and for this cup the number of teams will be limited to 8, so make sure to sign up sooner rather than later!


If you'd like to participate, join the Discord server to find more info on the cup in the #announcements and #cup-dates channels. More general info and rules can also be found in the #rules and #faq channels.

KnightComp is a new competitive game mode designed to give Demoknight players a share of the competitive action! Season 1 of KnightComp will serve as the means to determine who the best team of Demoknights truly is.


If your Eyelander keeps whispering at you to collect some heads, this is the best opportunity for you to do so. Maybe even steal some from an opposing Demoknight?


Season 1 of KnightComp is starting on February the 24th, with sign-ups ending on February the 23rd. If you want to participate, make sure you find a team before the 23rd! You can find teams by joining the KnightComp League Discord server, and join the league itself though the Match.tf page.


If you have any questions about the rules or anything else, check out the KnightComp Steam Guide for more information. Alternatively, you can ask the admins on the support channel in Discord if you still can't find your answer.
