It’s a week of announcements in the 4v4 world.
You might remember Herty, who gave a helping hand with the One Night Cups in the past.
Herty has spent his time since then playtesting new maps and talking to UGC about a potential UGC 4v4 League.
He’s filled me in where he can, but it’s all been hush-hush up until…JANUARY IT IS.
Ladies and gentlemen, I’m happy to announce not just one but two 4v4 leagues!
For the first time, I’m offering up an All-American-League! The NA 4v4 League (as run as Saam) will feature as one big division running similar to UGC/ESEA. Every week, teams will be scheduled to play against a team next to them in the rankings.
After the regular season, there will be standard-bracket knockout playoffs to determine the best 4v4 team in North America!
Things change for the Europeans though, as the Andyvich EU 4v4 League will bear more resemblance to ETF2L, featuring several divisions of 6 teams. At the end, the 3rd/4th-placed teams will play each other, the winner will play off against the 2nd-placed team for the right to challenge 1st place for the title of 4v4 Champion.
Both leagues will play out over 5 weeks with the following maplist:
- Week 1 – December 12th – Pro Viaduct
- Week 2 – December 19th – Lakeside
- Week 3 – December 26th – BYE WEEK
- Week 4 – January 2nd- Railbridge
- Week 5 – January 9th – Coalplant
- Week 6 – January 16th – Arctic
Signups are open now, so check out your 4v4 league near you and get playing!
Hello again! Haven’t posted in a while.
If you’re on this site, you probably remember the 4v4 cups I was hosting a while ago.
I would have liked to do a bit more with them, but I got my new job, wanted to make a good impression and cut down on late-night-TF2-time a bunch.
Impressions made, I’d like to get back and start doing something fun again.
Quite a few people suggested some sort of ladder system or a small-scale league (something similar to Round Robin size) so people who enjoyed the format could continue playing it.
If you’re interested, let me know! I haven’t got anything concrete set out, so it’s all up to you.
PS – If you’re playing 4v4 in mixes or whatever, try these maps! I’ve kept my eye on new custom maps but I haven’t had chance to try these ones out yet.

Scrapping Bonk’d. Making a serious podcast/DJ hour mashup with Tetrix.
Okay, but really. Me and Nana got Phantom (Equipe – Silver) and Macroverb (Particle Psychics – Steel) to come hang out a bit. Nana died of embarrassment, but we were joined by yak404 (Digital Alliance – Platinum) to round the show out.
Kitanamonk, Tizzel & I will be covering Fenneks eSports vs Saints for FenneksTV, getting ready for one of the most exciting games Division 1 has to offer!
Saints were tipped to be a strong competitor for this season, but we’ll see how Skeej & co. handle it.
The results have been available here but now I finally have a minute to make it official.
The winners are:
Division 1 - Jewnited States of America
Division 2 - whitelist.tf
Division 3 - Team-Awesome!
Division 4 – 1771cuntdestroyer
Well done guys!
Hopefully the next cup won’t take as long to be announced. Me and Herty are going to hit the drawing board and we’ll let you know what we come up with!
After a controversial season so far, it seems like Lazybear is going to be the hero that Gotham deserves and prepare a “serious” podcast for TF2 Highlander!
Having more content is always a good thing, especially if it helps the community scratch an itch in places I’m not interested in going. All the best!
