Welcome to the culmination of the Winter 2024 Season of Highlander!

After five weeks of competition, we are here, entering the playoffs stage once again… (BIG EXPLOSION NOISE). Additional details regarding tiebreaker scores and forthcoming matches can be found below.

If you find yourself on the list of these teams you are expected to be available. If you fail to provide information, or it is insufficient, 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 matches with your opponent’s, 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.

Due to poLANd.tf, teams are allowed to reschedule their Semi-finals and Grand Finals to a later date.


Maps will be decided using the following Map Elimination System:

The Team with the higher seed may pick if they are Team A or B

Team A bans a map
Team B bans a map
Team B picks a map
Team A picks a map
Team B bans a map
Team A bans a map
The remaining map is the decider

Note: In Mid & Open both teams need to agree on who eliminates first. If the two teams cannot agree, they need to perform a heavy fist fight. The winner of this heavy fist fight can decide if he wants to start of if the other team should.


For playoffs we decided to switch to pl_upward_f11 due to improved performance.
