    Important Notes to Team Leaders:

    1.) Schedules for the first match of the season will be posted by May 12th at the very latest. If your team has not been placed, please remember to add at least 9 players to your roster, set your team to Ready status and send us a division request. Only teams that are set to Ready status and have met the aformentioned criteria will be scheduled for matches.

    2.) Teams may ready up at any point, so if you miss Week 1 do not worry. You can still continue to build up your roster and play the next week.

    3.) This seasons maplist and whitelist will be announced following the closing of the Highlander Season 22 Polls and after receiving feedback from experimental maps being tested in the Region Wars event. The polls will be closed out on May 1st. If you haven't participated.. please give us your feedback! See this forum post for more information.

    4.) This seasons format will feature 8 regular weeks with 4 weeks of playoffs (3 playoff weeks and Grand Finals). There will be a fulltime rosterlock after the default match day of Week 7. Participation medals will be awarded to every division, and placement medals will be awarded to Platinum and Silver this season.

    5.) We are updating placement guidelines to include ETF2L experience for our EU region, as outlined below:

    • ETF2L High is considered to be Platinum.
    • ETF2L Mid is considered to be Silver.
    • ETF2L Open is considered to be Steel.

    6.) We are progressively adjusting the placement guidelines for Silver, as outlined below:

    • Silver - Is the intermediate skill division. Rosters are expected to be a mix of players with experience on mid to low Platinum teams, established Silver teams and high Steel teams. Teams are permitted to have no more than 2 Platinum players or 3 Gold players (or 1 Platinum player and 2 Gold players) from teams with established records (3+ legitimate wins) in the past 3 completed seasons and current season. Teams are permitted to have no more than 1 ESEA-I or ETF2L Premiership player rostered. See rule 3.2 for more information.

    7.) Our league's Chat Support is held over the Discord application.
    If you are logged in as a player or leader, this support option is on your menu. We've also embedded the Discord widget on this page.
    For more details please visit this forum thread.

    8.) Alternatively, if you have an issue that requires admin attention, please use our support ticket system. Players who login via Steam can submit a ticket as well as leaders who login with a special leader username/password. The ticket system can be located in the Support Menu once you login as a player or a leader.
