Mon, Apr 17, 2017 by Kumori

Greetings, Mercenaries!

With Season 21 having drawn to a close, here are some exciting changes to look out for going into Season 22!
 

Highlander Polls for Season 22

We have sent out polls to Team Leaders and active players from seasons 18-21 who have their Steam profiles linked on the forums. Players that meet that criteria will receive the polls through email. Please check your inbox!

If you don't meet the criteria from above or haven't received an email, no worries mate! The polls are open for anybody to participate, so share away!

Highlander Season 22 Polls

The goal of the polls is to give all players a voice in what maps we play next season and in our weapon whitelist. The polls will be our guide to the map list and weapon list for Season 22.

The polls will be closed out on Monday, May 1st, 23:59 EST
 

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.
 

Changes to Silver Placement Guidelines

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

Former Silver guidelines:
Silver - Is the seeding division for Platinum. Rosters are expected to be a mix of players with experience on mid to low Gold teams, established Silver teams and high Steel teams. Teams are permitted to have no more than 3 Gold players (or 2 Gold players and 1 Platinum player) 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.
