For those of you not playing in the playoffs or the Highlander challenge there is a nice surprise in the form of the Monday Night Madness Cup #8. This time the one day cup for custom maps will feature cp_snakewater by   Chojje. He spent quite some time on fine-tuning the map for competitive play, so be sure to check out more about his map in this forum thread.

    Hard Drinkers vs colony is also a match to watch.

  11. Exfane: EPA - TWIN said:


    why is this match defaulted, im guessing it is tcm roster problems that didnt get this match played, but from neither side it shows any attempts they have made on the match page itself.
    Most important is that the match decided who was going to be the last team for the playoffs!!!!!
    We were told our match vs tcm wouldve been put on 0-0 points for either team if we didnt play it, that shouldve happened with blight vs tcm so they wouldve played a match for 4th place!

    ctf_turbine_pro for Monday Night Madness #9 please!

  15. Orv: wat? said:

    News post says: Semi final (map elimination)
    HL Rules says: Semi Final: Both teams pick one map, possible Decider Map by Map Elimination Mode

    Personally I read the news post as “All three maps decided by elimination”, which is obviously not what the rules say. Can an admin please clarify this?

    Thank you.

    Was semi-boycotting MNM for terrible bracket placement for my team the last two times we participated, but the rest of my team threatened to write incoherent English if I wouldn’t sign up, so I had no choice!

    All jokes aside though, I hope we get past the first round this time :D
