Just a heads up regarding Season 8 playoffs. It looks like we are going to have approximately 400 teams signed up for highlander this season. The league is growing like crazy which is a good thing but it does require us to set some limits because we do not have all the time in the world. One of those limits will be on playoffs.
Starting this season, only the top 16 teams per division will make it to playoffs. For steel league only, the top 8 teams in Steel Red will face off against the top 8 teams in Steel Blue. We can only do 16 team playoffs in order for games to be done in 4 weeks. In the past we made playoff brackets to include every team but its to the point now where we would need 25 brackets and it's simply too much work for us.
We will have a specific prize update later.

Sounds awesome, should make for some intense playoffs.

Not even an iron or tin bracket? Should at least sit at the 5 there's usually been.

You're misreading. There's still a steel blu/red so it's the top 8 from each of those. For every other bracket it will be the top 16.

Shouldnt matter tho. Last year medals were only awarded to the top bracket in steel anyway.
