Highlander Nations Cup #2: Announcing Captains and Other Updates!

Date June 29, 2013

Highlander Nations Cup #2: Announcing Captains!

As a reminder, only national teams created by chosen Captains will be allowed to sign up for the Highlander Nations cup.

Here is a list of captains chosen to represent their nation!

As for the chosen captains, we want you to use the same team page as last time (if applicable). If you need leader rights for that team, please contact an admin on IRC here. Captains should add the desired roster to the team page as soon as possible, remembering the maximum roster size of 20. Teams without at least 12 players on the team roster (exceptions may apply) by July 7 could be removed from the Cup.

Groups will be announced tomorrow and from then teams should start to try to schedule as many of their group games as possible in the schedule week.

    lol adysky already made a SVK team, why isn’t he a captain?!

  6. Ritalin said:

    if you insist on making people play a broken map like viaduct_pro, please put in some type of bug abuse rule for heavies who like to exploit the boards on mid point.

    and remove barnblitz. read the feedback thread please.

  9. Mista: HDCK! - SDCK! said:

    are the CP and PL maps gonna be played bo1 or bo3 during playoffs?

  10. Limp.: HEHE said:

    Ritaline there is already rule for that.

    “6.1 Bug-Using is not allowed

    Any kind of “Bug-Using” is not allowed. Player using bugs will be punished. If you are unsure about the legality of any sneaky spot on a map, please contact an admin to clarify the situation and prevent complaints from your opponent.”

  14. nibo: elev8 - eerie said:

    @ Mista bo3

  17. uubers: B5. - good said:

    latvia clark xDDDDDDDDDDD

  18. Ununoctium: Gaston - TC said:

    One guy says he enjoyed barnblitz, over 10 ppl said it’s a shitty map. Map is still in the map pool.
    What’s the point of feedback if you ignore it?

  19. irfx: busi said:

    Latvia without atomic makes me smile. Also agree with people about useless feedback and barnblitz case.

  20. Permzilla: (Legend) - nL - WiK? said:

    what is hard to understand that it is feedback and not “whatever is said in this thread is final” ??

  21. AnimaL said:

    makes me smile too, i guess no latvians in this hl cup? :D

  22. uubers: B5. - good said:

    without atomic Latvia probably have better chances but with clark leading the team there cant be much talking about chances

  23. Spycy: HDCK! - XDCK! said:

    Someday we’ll that ol’ Swifwater in ETF2L HL

    (At least that’s what I hope)
