Highlander Nations Cup #5: Captains Applications
National teams are created and managed by Captains chosen out of submitted applications. Each Captain will pick the best possible roster from among their countrymen and lead their glorious squadron to victory. There are no restrictions on which players you can field in your team, so long as they are of your country’s nationality and are eligible to play in ETF2L.
To apply, send an email to [email protected], explaining why you should be your country’s captain and describe your planned national roster. Applicants who have experience leading successful ETF2L teams and a good reputation in the scene will be given priority. This should be self explanatory but you should include at least your nickname and your ETF2L profile link in the application letter.
Also please use the pre-fix [ETF2L] in your email’s subject, for example [ETF2L] HLNC5 Captain’s Application Germany.
Captain Applications will close on Thursday, June 1st at 20:00 CEST. Only approved Captains and their National Teams will be added to the competition. Up to 32 countries can be represented so if we reach that number before the deadline applications will be closed, however if we do not reach 32 teams we may have to reduce numbers to 16.
