The following plugins will be added on in during season 37.
- Removal of Medic Attach Speed – Medics no longer run at the speed of their heal target.
- Winger Jump Bonus only applies when fully deployed – Similarly to the Atomizer, the jump bonus from the Winger will only apply when fully deployed.
- Gunboats Always Apply – Gunboats currently do not apply the damage resistance when shooting enemies. With this plugin enabled they do.
- Projectiles Ignore Teammates – Projectiles consistently pass through teammates.
A plugin to help with the mercy rule is still being looked at but hasn’t been finalized yet. This will get a final updated before the premiership qualifiers start.
Teams looking into playing in either division 1 or 2 will need to sign up to High tier when signing up for the season. If teams would want to specify to which of these Divisions they want to be placed in, we strongly encourage teams to send in an application to us with the said method below.
Make sure to choose your desired tier when signing up for the season in the sign-up process. If you created a new team, feel free to apply for the tier you believe you deserve you should be in. To prove you are capable of the tier you applied for, we require you to submit screenshots or logs of results from your recent practice matches or tournaments where you scored decent results against teams that play on the level you aim for, send an application to [email protected] (details listed below) with a suitable subject. Emails with subjects like “Hello”, “Hi” or anything else that cannot be identified as a team applying for a tier by mail may be ignored. Teams signing up for the high division are advised to send an email whether they have a preference to either play division 1 or 2. If no email is sent by a team signing up for high they will get placed by admins based on the roster of the team.
