Highlander Season 7
It’s time for our 7th season of Highlander! After an amazing Season 6 it’s time to dust off the weapons, servers and headsets. We have some changes in store for Season 7 to be announced in upcoming newsposts – today we’ll start off with the weapon banlist and provisional map schedule for the season.
Signups & Full Schedule
Signups have opened and close Thursday 23rd October at 23:59 CEST.
- Signups close: October 23
- Publishing of Provisional Divisions: October 24
- Publishing of Final Divisions: October 25
- Schedule Week: October 26 – November 1
- Main Season: November 2 – December 20 (7 weeks)

Make sure to choose your desired division when signing up. If you created a new team or feel you can jump a division, feel free to apply for the division you believe you deserve you should be in. To prove you are capable of the division you applied for, we require you to submit screenshots of results from your recent practice matches or tournaments where you scored decent results against teams that play on the level you aim for. The quantity is not the most important factor in this case, it’s more of a helpful measure for us to figure out if your team will be able to keep up with the pace. There is no magical, minimum or maximum number of screenshots that you have to submit.
Please note that the success of your request also strongly depends on the free slots in the division you aim for. Established teams will be favoured over new teams or teams that request to jump a division. The screenshots have to be uploaded to an online image storage service (for example, you can use imgur or Dropbox). Keep in mind that if you opt for a zipped archives with tons of pictures attached to an e-mail, your application will be ignored. Keep it clean.
If you are applying for Division 6 (which is our entry division), you do not have to provide any proof that you are capable of playing at that level. This only applies to Division 5 or higher.
Because we can only include teams in multiples of eight, signing up really late may not guarantee you a spot in the season. So signing up sooner than later is recommended.
Please send your application to email@example.com. The division assignment request has to include the following information in order to be considered. Incomplete applications will be ignored! Please remember you have to sign up through the site by clicking SIGNUP at the top of this post and selecting the correct team and competition!
- Do not use HTML in your e-mail. If you want to add a link, just paste the link in the e-mail as you would enter it in your browser.

- Team link on ETF2L.org
- Division you apply for
- Link to the online photo album
- Reasons why your team deserves to be placed in the division you applied for (optional)
