Highlander Season 18 Final Tiers and More!

Date March 9, 2019

Highlander Season 18 Final Tiers are now released!

With European Tourettes Chessclub deciding to drop for the Premiership tier for Season 18, and in order to avoid having to run a 5 team Premiership season, SouthKorea Faketory Road will be moved into the Premiership Tier. We would like to thank SouthKorea Faketory Road for stepping up.

Rule updates and changes!

With the ever declining skill level in the UGC League we are going to be updating the following Highlander rule 1.5 from:

UGC HL Plat is considered to be high and as such players with plat experience are not allowed to default merc in mid, Gold and Silver are considered to be Mid. This applies to all regions of UGC. We do not count UGC 6v6 or 4v4 experience. As there is no way to check UGC player history, as such the three game threshold does not apply for UGC experience. For example, if a player was rostered on a UGC Platinum team in the last three seasons they will be counted as a player with high experience in ETF2L.

To:

Other leagues are included in experience. RGL Highlander Invite is considered to be Premiership and as such players with Invite experience are not allowed to default merc in Division 1 or below, Advanced players are considered to be Division 2, Main players are considered as Mid. This applies to all regions of RGL Highlander

For UGC experience, Premium EU is considered as Mid, and as such players with UGC Premium experience are not allowed to default merc in Open. We do not count UGC 6v6 or 4v4 experience. As there is no way to check UGC player history, as such the three game threshold does not apply for UGC experience. For example, if a player was rostered on a UGC Premium team in the last three seasons they will at least be counted as a player with Mid experience in ETF2L.

We would also like to remind players that abusing being able to change the spy decloak sound will result in a league ban and matches defaulted.

    AlesKee’s correct, we didn’t want to include Prolander in the rule update at all as we just wanted to focus more on shifting the original rule based around UGC HL to the current RGL HL standards.

    We still did keep some of the original UGC rule but so that it’s based more around the EU divisions, as we will make RGL HL the primary league to check experience from first and only then look into UGC skill tiers.

    Probably shouldn’t have linked the tftv thread with spy decloaks. As a spy boy, I feel really bad

    I’m pretty sure those files allow you to change more than just spy decloaks. Stuff like the volume of footsteps, the crackling of the medigun, hell you could probably change the melt sound of the spy-cicle to the mvm tank explosion if you really wanted to. While the latter is rather silly, stuff like the crackling sound would remove any need to track uber like ever, so I hope that if you literally link a thread with step by step instructions + example code on how to alter these things that you also have something in place to prevent people from using this or at the very least have ways to catch people abusing it.

    If we’re going to bank on Valve fixing this asap just because more people know about this now then I’m incredibly worried, because things like mediguns randomly detaching etc took ages to get fixed, not to mention all the stuff that hasn’t been fixed even though people have been complaining about them for years (ex. sticky det delay bug).

    i think that rule restricting players from RGL to def merc in lower tiers is stupid, i have 2 seasons in invite and i have mid/high experience for real andnow i cannot def merc for literally everyone cuz im too bad for prem

  11. AlesKee: (League Admin) - KNOPPER said:

    supra, the RGL rule is about highlander experience, and since EU does not have RGL this only applies to NA players. It does not affect you, read the post carefully before commenting…

    okay, you got the point

  13. Nightmare: inv said:

    How is the league going to find people using the spy decloak exploit? Unless someone is stupid enough to stream his game while clearly having replaced the decloak sound I can’t think of any way to properly bust someone. I can probably name a couple of people who I believe to be using this based on past experience but that would just be a hunch, unless demos from the spy point of view can serve as proof.
