    Sure, why not, if we can handle it.

    4.1. Team Roster Size Limit. Teams are allowed a maximum of 16 players per team on your listed roster.

    4.7. Team Roster LOCK for Playoffs. Teams are not allowed to add players during playoff weeks. A roster lock may be instituted during the final weeks of the regular season, but even if rosters are editable, players can not be added during playoff weeks for any team in playoffs brackets.
    It's less than 20 so we would have to trim the ETF2L team. But still, it's 9+7 bonus players, so it MIGHT be possible to complete a squad each time

    I can't find anything about "mercs", unless we would call them "unrostered team members" - but can we assume that every playstuffer outside Roster is an Unrostered Team Member? Hmmm... I don't know :/
    Hey, you can type small, nearly invisible text under your post. (or invisible!) That's great! - I know neat trick isn't it ?
    Hello, Stranger! Nice to have you in my sig! Feel free to leave comments! Any of them will be welcome!
    Some blue text here
    The Sero was heeeeereeee! (although he doesn't even know!) I think it's about time we got some orange text in this.
    I like tomatoes That's true, dear Stranger!I almost forgot to post here. Huh? Someone say my name?

    Mercs are like substitutes that can be anyone I believe.

    That's what it is in 6v6. The other team's usually have to accept that person as merc though

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    We should be alright in terms of number of players. IIRC we had 18 registered on ETF2L, at least 2 of whom were 'non-playing' because they were casting and/or supporting.

    I'd be up for that again, though if someone who didn't play in the last tournament wants a spot on the team then I'll sit out

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    Yep, as noted there are a few differences from the ETF2L ruleset. From what I saw of a quick look at the rules, the main differences are:

    1) smaller roster (16 instead of 20)
    2) different match format resulting in longer matches (for example, pl maps ARE played ABBA in UGC)
    3) different season format resulting in longer season (10 weeks of matches followed by playoffs)
    4) a pre-set default match time (for our timezone, Monday 8pm GMT, or against an "East Euro" team 7pm GMT - can still be changed by mutual consent)
    5) map pool (TBC but last season included more 5cps like Granary and Freight)

    And some boring leadery stuff too.



    Anyway, I have filled out the form to register us, waiting for approval now

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    Nice one, and like I said before, I can run us through 5cp tactics if there's more of a focus in UGC.

    Sounds good, count me in

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    Oh balls... Item sets aren't allowed period in this comp, not just hat sets. Which is a shame, as I used the medieval medic
    (I can see why no hat sets, as hard to get hold of, but I honestly don't see why no just item sets?)
    EDIT: Turns out there are some disallowed weapons as well. Surely a touch hard to keep track of, when certain weapons may just get banned? :S

    - Spring Season 2012 excluded weapons may include;
    1. Reserve Shooter
    2. The Enforcer
    3. Machina
    4. And additional exclusions (pending, to be announced on Jan 16)
    I use the reserve shooter -.-

    It is worth a read of the rules, there are a surprising amount of small changes like that.

    Also, can anyone tell me how 5cp maps work there? It isn't win-diff 5. It looks like first to 5, but not quite.

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    I do welcome the ban on the Enforcer, but I don't understand why in the world would Reserve Shooter be banned. It's a fairly balanced weapons, and not even the airblast+reserve shooter combo as pyro isn't as OP as I expected...

    Re: rules on 5cp, this is my understanding:

    Two rounds:
    - first ends either after a team reaches 4 caps, or after 30 minutes
    - second round ends after a team reaches a total of 5 caps (both round caps count) or after next 30 minutes.

    So in theory, if team A scores 4 caps in the first round and team B scores 0, second round starts, and team A only needs 1 cap to win the match. But team B can theoretically come back and cap 5 times without letting one go and win.

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    Cheers, that was sort of how I was understanding it, I just didn't understand WHY two rounds, but the example makes that clearer.

    almightybob wasn't kidding when he said longer games... xD

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Discussion Thread

    The reserve shooter is probably banned because of how it sometimes crits when it shouldn't.
