Season 27: Provisional Tiers
In case you do not find your team in this list, you were likely removed because you had between 1 and 5 players, in this case you have to gather 6 players in your roster and sign up for Season 27 again or you changed your name during signup process, just check for an old team name. We will try and get as many teams into the season as possible before week 1 starts. This is also a reminder that we will leave the signups open until the start of week 3 for late signups. If your team is not on the list or is in a different tier to what you expected please contact the admin team.
Due to a lack of signups we have not been able to create a fresh meat tier, however all teams that signed up for the fresh meat tier along with some of the less experienced teams that signed up for low have been placed together in the Open division. The remaining teams that signed up for low have been placed in a division together. Prem, High and Mid are unaffected.
These Provisional Tiers are very close to being the final tiers for Season 27. We will only consider making changes to your team’s placement if you can provide strong arguments with supporting screenshots.
If you have not done so already also submit your Preferred days and times for your week 1 fixtures. Teams will be paired on Saturday 23:59, so make sure to do it before.
To submit your availability go to Dashboard > My Teams > Edit Availability. Please also note to submit the time frame in a 24h format, otherwise it will not work (e.g. 20:00 instead of 08:00 p.m.).
Starting from this season we are implementing a Premiership rule restricting the amount of times a Premiership team can change their name, from the start of the season until a team’s last game they may change their name up to three times. Any name changes after the third will be punished with a minor warning.
1.8.6 Premiership teams have a limited amount of team name changes
All Premiership teams are allowed to change their team name to a maximum amount of 3 times per season. This applies from the day the main season starts until the team does not have any upcoming matches to play in the season. If a team has already reached the maximum amount of team name changes in a season and wants to change their team name again they must contact an admin before doing so, otherwise the team will get a separate minor warning for each change done; a team can receive this punishment multiple times per season.
Highlander Nations Cup #5 Update
So far we have had applications for the following national teams
- Czech Republic
- United States of America
If you do not see your country on this list feel free to apply, more information can be found on the initial newspost.
We are also clarifying our stance on players changing nationalities. We are not allowing players to change nationalities, if you have played for a nation’s cup team, 6v6 or Highlander you are locked to that country and may not play for a different nation. If you have any queries please contact the admin team.
