Preseason Qualifiers are happening afterall!

After our initial post regarding the Premiership Division signups was posted, we have received 2 more signups.
Because of the fact that the signup period for Premiership was particularly short as well as in order to maintain the integrity of the highest division in Europe, we decided to revise our assessment:

We were informed that Algeria PAINT Gaming is “dead” and thus they will be dropped from the season.

International 6ix will play in Premiership for Season 35.

European BOOMERS vs Iceland synonim of perfection will duke out the remaining 8th spot.

Prize Pool and Sponsorship Update

Thanks to our friends at Copenhagen Games we are happy to announce that the winners of the Premiership Division will receive 6 tickets to the upcoming Copenhagen Games LAN event, so [email protected]! The updated prize pool is:

gold medal Place – 6 tickets to Copenhagen Games
silver medal Place – 300 Euros
bronze medal Place – 120 Euros

Rules & Configs 3.0: General, 6s and Highlander Changes

Date January 20, 2020

Rules and Configs Change

After complaints made by our community and some rules being not clear, we decided to review and apply changes in the Rules. Therefore we have removed, added and rewritten some of them.

The rules and configs change will take effect immediately.

Additionally for the future and in order to keep tracks and more transparency for everyone we will implement the Latest Rules Update page with the applications dates.

WARNING: Some minor changes have not been mentioned here because the post is already long enough and those changes are situational.

Highlander Season 20: Playoffs and Tiebreaker Scores

Date January 4, 2020

First off all we like to wish you all a happy new year! Welcome everyone to the conclusion of the 20th season of ETF2L Highlander for Open, Mid, Division 2, Division 1 and Premiership. We hope you enjoyed the matches, and for the teams that made it through, congratulations.

All tiers will have playoffs, all playoff matches will be using the Map Elimination system. Note that all dates are estimates and teams are able to negotiate other days by scheduling with their opponents.

If you find yourself on the list of these teams expect an admin to add you and request your availability, if there is no information or insufficient information given we will have to decide your match dates for you. Keep in mind that we will try and accommodate both teams, but the match date may still vary from your provided days, if for example none of the days match with your opponent, but your opponent offered more days than you did. Deadlines listed for the matches are flexible and may be changed in certain situations if admins are contacted about allowing extensions on these.

Schedule

For Mid and Open tiers, the schedule for the playoff matches will be the following.

  • Quarter final matches will be played from 5th– 11th January.
  • Semi Finals will be played from 12th  – 18th January.
  • Grand Finals will be played from 19th – 26th January.

For Premiership, Division 1 and Division 2 we are going with single elimination bubble bracket, the schedule for the playoff matches will be the following.

  • The Semi Final results must be submitted by 15th of January and the Grand Finals must be played by 26th of January. If you need to play outside of these dates contact an admin.
