Teams decide together which server to play the match on. Server rentals from na.serveme.tf are recommended. Please ensure the correct config/whitelist is used.

If your match is to be casted live on twitch.tv/essentialstf, the server details will be provided to you by the tournament administrators.

All matches are to be played with the Unity Cup Configs and the latest version of the RGL item whitelist.

These configs can be found on NA Serveme and on Qixalite under the names unity_5cp_rgl & unity_koth_rgl. They can also be downloaded here.
