Season 21 powered by Tt eSPORTS: New Schedule
Looking at the current signups we have decided to push the whole season back a week. We are well aware that this is the summer season and the signups seem to generally drop or at least stagnate a litte. But right now we are at only 60% of the signups we had for Season 20, which is something we think can definitely be improved. Therefore we want to give teams an additional week of signups, resulting in the following schedule:
- Signups: April 20 – May 12
- Publishing of Provisional: May 13
- Publishing of Final: May 14
- Schedule Deadline: May 16
- Main Season: May 17 – July 2 (7 Weeks)
- High/Mid/Open Playoffs: July 5 – July 19
- Premiership Playoffs: July 12
Season 21 powered by Tt eSPORTS: Map Poll
We said we would probably never run them again and yet here it is. A map poll! We already gathered the feedback from the Premier Division, but it is not really decisive enough to base a decision on. Therefore we will take the input from the whole community into our considerations. Though there are not a whole lot of new maps, if there are any; instead this poll is going to decide which map will make a comeback or if the map pool will stay as it is. The maps in question are cp_logjam, cp_granary_pro, cp_metalworks and cp_granary. Make sure you check out what has changed in the attached links before voting.
The map with the highest average score will (in case its logjam) stay or (in case its granary, granary_pro, metalworks) replace logjam. Keep in mind logjam is still being actively developed and improved based on your feedback. Same goes for granary_pro who will most likely, based on upcoming feedback, still undergo some changes before the season will start. Metalworks has also seen some changes recently, although those included mainly bug fixes and the map has not changed drastically as a result. We will use the most updated version at the time, if either of the maps will make it into the season.
Be careful with your votes, the order in which the options are displayed is random!

Despite not being German, a group of trials have proven that they are close enough to the high standards by which the German part of the admin team is measured, to now be granted the status of full staff status.
We are welcoming:
- Aoshi – Highlander League Admin
- DeatH_D – 6s League Admin
- DyaWyb – Highlander League Admin

At the same time we also have someone leaving the staff, watering the German/Non-German ratio down even further.
Effective immediately ash will be leaving the staff. We thank him for his commitment and all the time and nerves he invested. He had the following to say:
