    Aoshi | ETF2L.org: So the Saturday stays unless if both you and ceejeay can come to a compromise

    The admins and Chess are completely fine with a reschedule to a later date for the sake of making a real grand final happen, instead of Strong Opinions versus a mix team, or eventually just a default win for Strong Opinions to save everyone a Saturday evening.

    Steve pls, don’t be an ass. Else I might have to stand on top of my pedestal again 8)

  5. Khazul: SDCK said:

    Missing too many players on Saturday and SO refuses a rescheduling. Default win for SO

  6. CeeJaey: (The MvM Guy) - Gaston - S-O said:

    All teams were told at the start of January that playoff games had to be played by a certain date. We were told by admins there was no wiggle-room for these dates, in particular, that if we fell into the Lower Bracket, we would be forced to play without alle & Thalash (who were at Rewind). We weren’t happy, but accepted this on the basis of the limitation of the schedule.

    The date for the final, we were told (at the start of January) was to be played before the 29th. People have planned around this (Emilio has a work trip, Steve has exams, others have 6s, etc) and so we’ve organised ourselves based around those dates. It hasn’t been perfect (we were missing multiple people this week ourselves, we don’t have a full lineup any of these days) but we’ve got on with it. We’ve made ourselves available every_single_day this week, as seen in the first post.

    I’m not sure why the admins were prepared to force us to play without our main roster (should we have dropped to the LB), but when it comes to Chess, they are happy to let them delay because they are missing a few players. Why the preferential treatment? Delaying will probably leave us even more short of a full roster; it’s ok to gimp our team in a Grand Final because Chess are threatening to default?

    :thinking:

  7. Steve!: S-O said:

    Thanks for the default see you next season

  8. Khazul: SDCK said:

    Forced to play while missing two players? We’re missing atleast four each day this week, but SO apparently couldn’t fine a single date during next week, the week after, the week after that etc. when they could play.

    See you next season! :)

    Dear teams,

    Sorry for being somewhat late on this. The Final will be one BO3 maps.
    Strong Opinions came from the upper bracket they get to decide who goes first for the map picking and what the decider is.
    Team A bans
    Team B bans
    Team B picks
    Team A picks
    Team A bans
    Team B bans
    Strong Opinion chooses the decider map

    Aids.

    At least let SDCK be finalists then if this is whats being resorted to.

  22. Toast: S-O said:

    Classic chessclub >.<

  23. Clark: FROG - SDCK said:

    I’m cool with letting SDCK play the finals PogChamp.

    Also, according to the rules, Funs is right. Lower bracket winner has to win 2 best-of-threes to be crowned a champion.

  25. ondkaja: antic said:

    This gamemode is so dead lmao

  26. ondkaja: antic said:

    haha this shitty fucking league is so useless it’s insane. clever of the admins to decide the playoffs date AFTER the main season, making it completely impossible to plan around the playoffs. not that it would have changed anything anyway, only fucking idiots plan their lives around fucking highlander anyway.

    fucking shitty teams in this so called PREMIER division who can’t even take on the most unstable fucking team plagued with roster issues. honestly what the fuck is your problem? this shitty division is fucking dead, there are no good players and a team can just pick up a random assortment of old players, have 0 stability and still come 2nd.

    just end this shitty highlander league already, it has been fun for a while but now the fun is over. get the highlander players over to 6v6 so they can finally see go outside their fucking safe space and actually have to be good at more than just one thing

    fuck this shitty gamemode, i’m not playing another season of this shit again.

  27. TimTum: (ETF2L Donator) - LvG - inv said:

    The 6s prem grand finals was delayed by almost 2 weeks as well.

    ‘but the grand final must be played on the 20th of November at the latest.’ But the match was played on the 1st of December.

    But then it wasn’t a problem?

  28. Georgebaii: SCOOPER - SEKS (me) said:

    Defaulting a Grand Final particularly for Prem no matter what gamemode is petty as fuck to be honest.

  29. Just1s: W0LF - CRAZYBWAII said:

    It would be, but they didn’t do that. Did you even read match comms before posting? :)
    SO gave 4 days they can play before the deadline and thats literally any day before deadline, so if the enemy team can’t get their players to play in said Grand Final and then complains how SO doesn’t want to play later now that might be quite petty.

  30. Chronos: BMS said:

    Seems pretty bad that chess can’t play entire week up to Saturday. Also seems bizarre that 6s final can get put off by 2 weeks but hl can’t, I guess in 6s the teams agreed to this. On the whole, an excellent season of highlander! Now everyone go play 6s or ow (can comfirm the latter is much better)

    @Chronos Georgebaii#21122 hmu :)

  32. HartzFartz: (ETF2L Donator) - PrettyGay - lolhl said:

    This is what a strong player would say:
    “It hasn’t been perfect (we were missing multiple people this week ourselves, we don’t have a full lineup any of these days) but we’ve got on with it. We’ve made ourselves available every_single_day this week, as seen in the first post.”

    and then this would be a very fragile player:
    “fucking shitty teams in this so called PREMIER division who can’t even take on the most unstable fucking team plagued with roster issues. honestly what the fuck is your problem? this shitty division is fucking dead,…”

    And I say, well played admins, now that we(as in the whole hl community) dont have to wait for chess to play anymore, we can move on and go play another season of highlander.

  41. Synrise: (ETF2L Donator) - GIEL - S-O said:

    Hello, sorry that I’m chipping in this late. I went to the USA for pax east but spent the last few days in bed with a fever.

    1)Stop sending hurtful comments towards the league and SO. Rules are there for a reason and we couldn’t propose 3 dates before the deadline. In the end, objectively, chess is wrong in this

    2) most of us honestly don’t care that we weren’t able to play the final. We had a fun season and met our goal to reach the final. Even with a full roster SO were favourites. In the end we would have had to play an official with a minimum of 4 mercs, which everyone is terrible. Even more against the strongest team in Europe.

    3) We always had a good relation with the other teams and SO. And I want it to keep it this way. The hl community is small enough as it is, we don’t need this drama. (Again most of us don’t care)

    4) in the end we are to blame, including myself. Apologies to SO, the admins and my team that we have to end this season on a sour note.

    I hope we can forget about this, we have next season to look forward to.

    Cheers, syn
    Live from my bed in San Antonio :/

    Why did you admit responsibility synrise? Now my memes will be meaningless….

    haha this shitty fucking game is so useless it’s insane. clever of the developers to decide the matchmaking mode AFTER the announce of OW, making it completely impossible to plan around finally becoming big e-sport. not that it would have changed anything anyway, only fucking idiots plan their lives around fucking videogame anyway.

    fucking shitty devs in this so called VALVE company who can’t even take on the most unstable fucking competitive mode plagued with the lack of money involved. honestly what the fuck is your problem? this shitty game is fucking dead, there are no good casters and a production team can just pick up a random assortment of british mid players, have 0 stability and still come with the best lan of the year.

    just end this shitty vedeo game already, it has been fun for a while but now the fun is over. get the TF2 players over to dota so they can finally see go outside their fucking safe space and actually have to be good at more than just one thing

    fuck this shitty game, i’m not playing another 1k hours of this shit again.

    WOw this is a real CRAZY turn of events

  49. cherryrendezvous: nunya - SDCK said:

    From what I understand, SO said its impossible to play after Sunday, and the days before that were not possible for us. The admins said they were totally fine with doing

  50. cherryrendezvous: nunya - SDCK said:

    The finals another date, but SO didn’t want to. So the “classic chess” tone seems a bit misplaced considering it was only SO that didn’t want to delay.

  51. b33p: (ETF2L Donator) - -st- said:

    Sorry for writing on another team’s match page (first time) but only writing as Hildoge mentioned me. The single difference was that CJ was within the rules and got a default, but we were within the rules and did not get a default.

    > it was only SO that didn’t want to delay.

    it was only chess that didn’t want to play before the actual deadline 🤔

  54. Clark: FROG - SDCK said:

    > all prem teams’ leaders were notified in a pre-season meeting about the playoffs schedule;
    > playoffs schedule was changed in the beginning of January, but teams were notified as well;
    > chess was contacted by SO right after their lower bracket final match versus SDCK to schedule a date for grand finals;
    > chess couldn’t play on any of the dates from that point on until the deadline;
    > if you go by the rules, chess were at fault.

    tl;dr: synrise is correct.

  65. Bloodis: (League Admin) - (๑╹ω╹๑ ) - catgirl.tf said:

    @nightmare I don’t suppose that HL elitists such as yourself are any better either, to be defending a gamemode that is struggling to get even 100 teams or teams across all 4 divisions when more people want to jump their way to prem instead of playing in high (where half of current prem hl belongs tbqh)

    The facts here are either that 9v9 is dead or TF2 is dead, since I do see 6v6 being a thing in games that is breathing more now than it ever has done before.

  66. Asaaj: catgirl.tf said:

    How about we don’t rip on either gamemode and try to co-exist? Is it really that complicated to do? LMAO

  67. Anus Stretcher: #TF2Center said:

    obviously there is one gamemode that is flourishing and has ALL the skill with limitless skill ceiling and one that is a dead, putrid corpse for people without skill. lets find out in the comments of this match page because inbetweens do not exist!

    im superior to all of you btw

  68. woolen: catgirl.tf said:

    anyone up for some 4v4?
    i heard its pretty good fun

  69. Bulow: bad said:

    Congratulations to Strong Opinions, a worthy way to match SNSD’s legacy of 3 championship wins in a row! :)

  70. Divider of Worlds: MEMES - R? said:

    It’s a game, we were supposed to have fun, I think it’s not as hard. Idk why it’s so hard to delay match and have that fukn fun. Rules were made to make everyone enjoy the game. Yes, everything made in rules, but now are u feeling good with dignity of winning final without real match?
    That’s why Highlander is dying, everyone stops having fun, coz of people like them.

  71. Kissakala: MUUQ - bad said:

    @Bloodis TF2 is dead. HL is dead. 6v6 is dead. Look at the numbers.
    ~130 teams for 6v6 is around 800 players.
    HL had 71 teams, which means around 640 players.

    20% difference in player bases isn’t really enough to claim that one is dead without the other one being as well.
    So either both are dead or neither is dead, and we both know which one it would be.

  72. 4hp said:

    agreed with Asaaj. Let’s coexist. TF2 playerbase is dwindling as a whole, and it’s now more important than ever that we stop acting toxic to each other. Just enjoy the game

  73. Max: Fusion said:

    Don’t tell me that people still unironically play tf2

    End this meme
