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.
 

Team Placements

Team placements are underway. Please be patient, all teams will be placed before the start of the season. Remember that you need 9 people on your roster to be considered for placement! If your team is not yet placed into a skill division please submit a division change request from your leader panel.
 

Reminder to All New and Returning Teams

After you have been placed into a division and have at least 9 players on your roster, don't forget to set your team to Ready in your leader panel to be scheduled for matches!
 

Reminder of Changes to EU Placement Guidelines

We are including experience from ETF2L when considering placements.
ETF2L High is considered to be Platinum. Mid is considered to be Silver and Open is considered to be Steel.
 

Reminder of Changes to Silver Guidelines

We are progressively adjusting the placement guidelines for Silver. The following changes will be amended to the Rules shortly.

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.

 

Map Rotation and Whitelist

The new map rotation 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.
Once our maplist is available it will be posted here. Our new whitelist will be made available to download here.
