Copenhagen Games 2018 – Highlander & 6v6 BYOC LAN

Date March 5, 2018

When: March 29-31, 2018
Where: Copenhagen, Denmark

Team Fortress 2 has always been a very community driven game, people creating content, players making mods and organizing LANs. So it should not come as a surprise that Esport United and the team behind it stepped up to make Copenhagen Games 2018 happen, with not only one but two TF2 Tournaments! For the first time in history of the game tournaments for both the action packed 6v6 and 9v9 Highlander game modes will be represented to unite and gather players of those communities under one roof in the Bella Center.

The TF2 ticket books you a seat in the BYOC hall an allows you to play in both tournaments, so you can show up with your team to play and meet your ingame friends in the beautiful city of Copenhagen. Games will be scheduled in a way that you can play in both the 6v6 and 9v9 tournaments if you would like to try to get your hands on a share of the prizepool with your team(s). The matches will start on Thursday 29th of March at 10AM (yes, that is in the morning), so make sure to be on time. If you happen to be at the venue on the Wednesday you might even be able to get your hands on some more prizes by playing in a small 2v2 Ultiduo Tournament.

Signing up

Make sure to book your Team Fortress 2 seat on time and check out the LAN Discord to help find or possibly share accommodations, get a team, or find players to fill out your roster.

Team leaders need to sign their team and players up on Toornament:

When booking your ticket on the Copenhagen Games website fill in your team name, or contact support to have it changed later if you don’t have a team yet, to make sure you end up seated with your friends and teammates!

More information (about rentals) and announcements can be found in the thread on and the Discord.

Highlander Season 15 Preseason Cup

Date February 19, 2018


With the dust settled on Season 14, let’s start the preparation for Season 15! This cup will focus around testing maps for the upcoming season to see if they’re still fit to be of same quality as most of the current maps played in Highlander.

Edit: It has been brought to our attention that there is currently a bug with the Gas Passer allowing it to be thrown through walls, because of this it will be kept banned from this cup. The new whitelist can be seen at

>>>Signup now!<<<


Each tier is divided into round robin groups of four teams meaning there could be multiple groups for each tier, teams that sign up sooner will be prioritized in getting a spot in the cup, so do not wait until the last minute to sign up! Keep in mind that there will not be any elimination rounds for this cup.

  • Signups close: March 2nd at 21:00 CET
  • Group stage round 1: March 4th 19:00 CET – pl_borneo
