The days of two engineers, three spies and six snipers on your team are over. The European Team Fortress 2 League invites you to play TF2 like you've never played it before: competitively. Head-to-head against other communities. In front of hundreds of people. For shiny medals.

A Highlander team is made up of nine players, each playing a different class. So, in other words, your team will be one scout, one soldier, one pyro, one demoman, one heavy, one engineer, one medic, one sniper and one spy.

Highlander is the ultimate red vs blu grudge match, bringing out the very best in the nine classes through teamwork, tactics and skill.

Yes! Thanks to Valve, everyone who takes part in
this contest has a chance to win a medal.

But it's not as simple as just signing up to get a participation medal.
You have to earn it by completing your tournament games.

Potentially, yes. Potentially more!

The competitive community loves to spectate tournament games, and the competition will be covered by ETF2L Radio, PwnageTV and ExTV. Not to mention written about on sites like Community Fortress, Cadred and VanillaTF2. So you better get practicing!

There is no catch. Forget the stereotypes you might have about competitive play. It's not about your kill to death ratios or any of the classes being more important than the others: this is about you and your team working hard together to complete objectives.

We'll be playing a wide variety of maps, all weapons are allowed and there are only a couple of simple rules (like no crits and stopwatch mode) that you might not be familiar with.

This tournament is strictly for people who are new to competitive play. People of all nationalities and skill levels are welcome.

So what are you waiting for? Get eight buddies, pick your classes and sign up now! Medals and glory await!
