Highlander Season 13 Preseason Playoffs

Date July 8, 2017


The Highlander Season 13 preseason playoffs have been announced. The following four teams will play through a modified double elimination bracket for two spots, Russia kiti s bakenbardami, Latvia Super Dickmann's JUNIORS!, Sweden Lucrosa, and Croatia Cult of Ivan.

Sweden Lucrosa and Croatia Cult of Ivan will start in the lower bracket. The bracket can be seen here.

Default mercs may only be of high experience, any player with more than three games in prem over the past three seasons cannot default merc and must be approved.

  • Upper Round 1: Sat 8/7 – Tues 11/7
  • Lower Round 1: Sat 8/7 – Tues 11/7
  • Lower Round 2: Wed 12/7 – Sat 15/7

There is a significant amount of flexibility with the scheduling of the games, if you are having any issues with scheduling of your games please contact the admin team.

The map pool for the main and post season will be the same as season 12. For the preseason playoffs a slightly reduced map pool will be used to allow for easy unseeded map elimination.

  • pl_upward
  • cp_gullywash_final1
  • koth_product_rc8
  • cp_steel
  • pl_badwater

The whitelist will remain unchanged from season 12, if the update including the teased rebalances occurs mid season the whitelist will be updated ASAP.

    Last prem playoffs the biggest complaint from the teams competing was not having enough days to schedule causing teams to play with too many mercs. So I imagine this setup was chosen since it only requires 2 rounds instead of 3.
