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.
