After the cup has concluded and we collected your feedback we are announcing the Season 29 whitelist. Thanks to everyone for participating and a big shoutout to the cup’s sponsor whitelist.tf.

For more information on the matter, click here.

Map Rotation Update

In order to keep the Map Rotation feeling fresh, it will be changing from season-to-season, starting now! Originally held back due to updates to some of our pro maps, we decided to go with the trusted versions of either map, namely prolands and granary_pro, while keeping the schedule change.

Rule Update

We will be adding a new rule to our 6v6 rules which will be valid for all tiers for their respective Grand Finals. This change was agreed upon in order to ensure that a team fields their main lineup in the final match of the season to prove their strength, while still allowing a single merc in case of any availability issues.

1.4.1 A team can use up to a maximum of 1 merc in Grand Final matches.

A team can use up to a maximum of 1 merc in a Grand Final match of any tier, even if the opponent would allow the use of more than 1 merc.

Premiership Qualifiers

Now to the more exciting news: We have decided on our qualifiers for the Season 29 Premiership division!
With SouthAfrica nunya having superior results in their application and UnitedKingdom Se7en being a returning champion, both of the teams will be joining last season’s prem teams France Ascent.EU and European SVIFT, as well as last season’s winning high team Romania Rakuzan, without partaking in the Qualifiers.

The following teams will be fighting for one of three spots, with the seedings on their starting bracket:

Starting from the Upper Bracket, we have these 4 teams:

As well as these 2 teams starting from the lower bracket:

Here is how the brackets will work: Four teams will be facing off in the upper bracket, whose winners will move directly into Premiership. The losers of the upper bracket matches will drop into the lower bracket where the remaining two teams are waiting. Winners of the lower bracket matches will be fighting over the last available spot in the lower bracket final.
You can find a more visual explanation of the brackets here.

Update: Because of European SVIFT dropping out of the season, we have changed the Qualifier bracket slightly

The playoffs will take place from Sunday 21st to Friday 26th January with each round having only couple days of time to be played.

Announcing Season 29!

Date January 9, 2018

Announcing Season 29!

First of all congratulations once again to Season 28 winners European SVIFT! However, there is going to be only a short break in the TF2 calendar with Season 29 signups open until 26th of January at 21:00 CEST.

Premiership signups will close on the 20th of January at 21:00 CEST.

>>>> Sign up now! <<<<

Prizepool

While we sadly don’t have a sponsor yet, we do have a prize pool thanks to our ad revenue and affiliate programs. This amount is not on the same level as what a sponsorship could have provided but is definitely better than nothing. Meanwhile, we are already starting preparations to make season 30 a great season for all participating teams.

Here are the prizes for next season’s Premiership division.

gold medal – 300 Euros

silver medal – 120 Euros

Unlocks and Map Pool

The whitelist used for this season will be published after our Global Whitelist Test Cup will be wrapped up in order to establish which of the weapons tested will be allowed in the season.

Meanwhile, the map pool is undergoing a few changes compared to Season 28.

Reckoner will not be played in Season 29 anymore, as the map was seen as a new project that we had taken into our map pool for the purpose to improve it further on with community feedback.  However, it had not seen many changes nor updates towards the past seasons that it was played in the league. While in the newest version of the map changes have been implemented, they’ve not been received positively in the off-season, thus leading us to the decision of not choosing the map for Season 29 anymore.

However, with Reckoner going out, we are bringing back Granary for more diversity to the map pool, as the map is less Scout-centered and still retained its original popularity from when we removed it. We couldn’t separate ourselves from Granary for too long anyway.

The Grand Finale of Highlander Season 14

Written by England chando

Here it is ladies and gentlemen. The most important match of what might be considered the most exciting and unpredictable season of European Highlander the community has witnessed in a long time. The ETF2L Highlander Season 14 Grand Final is upon us. European Strong Opinions will face off against debut premiership playoff team Poland Feila eSports finanzieren durch DROPS.

Perhaps surprising the majority, Feila were not only able to make their first playoff appearance, ranking third in the group stages, but also took a clean victory against former premiership 9v9 kingpins, Luxembourg Super Dickmann's KANNONEN! in only two maps! This best of three battleground will feature cp_process, koth_coalplant and koth_product. That’s right, a Grand Finals with NO payload whatsoever! Make of that what you will…

Highlander Season 14 Semifinal: Super Dickmann’s KANNONEN! vs Feila eSports

Date January 14, 2018

Written by Germany Domaytoe

Hot damn! It feels like we haven’t had packing Premiership Level Highlander Action since years! Well, or at least one year. Okay, since last year.

With that mandatory comedic remark off the list we are glad to announce the culminate upcoming clash that is definitely no joke! Culmination? This isn’t the Grand Final! But it IS the final peak for at least one of the teams that will battle it out in a Best of 3 format, taking us onto the grounds of:

  • Ashville’s carbonated derivative Coalplant!
  • The sturdy gangways and ironed chokes wielding Steel!
  • and Upward.

On that note, let’s move forward to the two Highlander titans that will be battling it out for a shot at the Highlander Season 14 Grand Finals.
