Highlander Season 12 Signups are still open!

Season 26 Powered by Tt eSPORTS Premiership Upper Bracket Round 1 – nerdRage vs Arctic Foxes

Date March 16, 2017

banner-s26-1920x1080

With Lowpander providing Se7en with an unexpectedly close match earlier this week, all bets are off for this encounter between the French squad under sponsor France nerdRage, and the predominantly German Germany Arctic Foxes. The organised and high-fragging combo of France Néo and France blade will look to prove that the consistency they have displayed throughout the season can outgun the mechanically powerful roster they find themselves up against. The winner of this game will find themselves battling the behemoth that is Se7en, so they’ll need all the practise they can get.

Season 26 Powered by Tt eSPORTS Premiership Upper Bracket Round 1 – Se7en vs Lowpander

Date March 14, 2017

banner-s26-1920x1080

With an unexpected playoff berth following the quick demise of champGG.K!, European Lowpander will look to prove they deserve their spot with a strong showing versus the juggernauts of UnitedKingdom Se7en. A harder test in Europe they will not find, but Latvia uubers will try his best to be unerred by this intimidating opponent, instead attempting to drop the huge numbers he’s been dumping on nerds all season. Netherlands kaptain and the boys are probably unconcerned by the change of opponent, and already will have their eyes on the upper bracket game versus either nerdRage or Arctic Foxes . Will this be a casual swatting aside, or can the panders turn heads with a massive upset win?

Highlander Season 12 Announcement and Preseason Cup Structure Update

Date March 13, 2017

 HL_S_12

Announcing Highlander Season 12.

As Season 11 is over with European Strong Opinions claiming the crown once again, we are pleased to announce our next Highlander Season. All the information regarding the coming Season can either be found in this newspost, or will be released shortly!

Due to the slow decline of signups to highlander seasons we are shortening the regular season length from seven weeks to five. Not only will this allow us to return to all three tiers of High, Mid and Open but it will allow for three highlander seasons a year on top of a summer event such as a nations cup. This will mean that the number of teams competing in the Premiership tier will be reduced to six.

The map pool and whitelist for the season are still undecided and will be announced soon

>>>>>SIGN UP NOW<<<<<<

Season Schedule

  • Signups: March 12 – March 24, 21:00 CET  (Premiership signup deadline is March 18)
  • Publishing of Provisional Divisions: March 24
  • Publishing of Final Divisions: March 25
  • Pre-Season Playoffs: March 19 – March 25
  • Main Season: March 26 – April 27 (5 Weeks)
  • High/Mid/Open Playoffs: April 30 – May 14
  • Premiership Playoffs: TBD

The structure of the premiership playoffs will be decided in collaboration with premiership team leaders once the six premiership teams are known.

If you intend to sign up for the Premier Division we encourage you to do so as soon as possible due to the Pre-Season Playoffs. We will only consider teams for the Pre-Season Playoffs that signed up before March 18 21:00 CET. Additionally we expect teams without a guaranteed Premier Division spot to be able to play all of the days mentioned above.

Season 26 Powered by Tt eSPORTS Premiership Week 7 – ChampGG.K! vs Se7en and Lemmings vs nunya and (!) Lowpander vs nerdRage

Date March 11, 2017

banner-s26-1920x1080

Instead of trying to slowly wean you off the drug that is prem TF2, scheduling has led to three matches in one night, something highly unusual and worrying for broadcasters teamfortress.tv. Dusting off teamfortresstv3 on twitch has been considered, and you now have no excuse to be watching some TF2 this sunday. Annoyingly, all the games are scheduled at the same time, but I’m sure they’ll start a fair amount apart come the hour.

Match one: The reigning champions take on the new old-timers. With the addition of UnitedKingdom Silentes and England spudd into the lineup, European ChampGG.K! certainly look like they have the firepower now to go head-to-head with anyone. Getting the whole team to play together in a way that could take apart the incredibly well-drilled UnitedKingdom Se7en is another matter. Don’t bet against someone like Silentes going crazy and dropping huge frags, but it’ll take a stupendous performance to get Se7en to drop points at the final hurdle before playoffs.

Following Arctic Foxes‘s simple victory earlier in the week, European Lowpander‘s quest for playoffs has reached its disappointing conclusion. It is a shame, because they seem to have grown on everybody throughout the season, and would certainly bring some spice to a best-of-three series. But this will be their final contribution to prem this season. The best thing they can achieve now is to try and oust France nerdRage from their second place in the standings. nerdRage would be mightily disappointed with showing any weakness just before playoffs, so expect to see a fully motivated game from both teams (although it’ll be hard to tell if Lowpander are just messing around with offclasses).

And last (and probably least), two of the bottom three have come together to play. Cyprus nunya haven’t even got the chance to surpass their opponents should they win, and the best Germany Lemmings can do is equal Lowpander on 17 points. Although there may not be as much motive to watch this one, if you wanted to watch nunya’s final game and maybe have a laugh, this is your chance.

If you find yourself on the list of these teams expect an admin to add you and request your availability, if there is no information or insufficient information given we will have to decide your match dates for you. Keep in mind that we will try and accommodate both teams, but the match date may still vary from your provided days, if for example none of the days match with your opponent, but your opponent offered more days than you did. Deadlines listed for the matches are flexible and may be changed in certain situations if admins are contacted about allowing extensions on these.
