    Re: ETF2L Highlander Season 3

    Div 5 would be good, and I couldn't agree more about having defined roles. It'll help us gel better as a team as people won't be like "...but I'm terrible at class X" then people have to compromise.

    As usual, I can play Demo/Soldier/Heavy/Sniper

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Season 3

    Ok I have updated the roster on the ETF2L website, anyone who was not previously in the team have been sent invites on ETF2L, so please log in and accept

    I have also removed players who are not competing this season, there is one space left in the squad (I think its 20 max?) if anyone is interested.

    Also they released a little more information last night, nothing special just division 1 is now called the premiership and there is prize money available to winners of certain leagues/playoffs quick get the practice in lads *rubs hands*

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Season 3

    Ok here is the first Doodle of the season:

    http://www.doodle.com/e5bd3yvs94gws3nb#table

    Ok, if everyone within the team could please fill this in, to help us decide on which date/time evry week would suit us best to try and have a little get together to discuss that weeks upcoming match. I know it is impossible to say every week right now but if you can roughly guess when each week would suit you best for the coming weeks. We need to try and get one practice a week going. Practices should start roughly in the next two weeks once the highlander fixtures have been confimred.

    Any questions please ask.

    Re: ETF2L Highlander Season 3

    Right this is in no particular order but after reviewing the squad this is the positions I would like everyone to play throughout the season, obviously on occasions you may be asked to play a different position if and when needed, so we have:

    Scout: Krazko, Calump
    Soldier: Khyber, The Sero, Jimmy
    Pyro: Hazo, Goldenrod
    Heavy: Snow, Konflict
    Demo: Spudd, Almightybob
    Engi: Ehdoo, Dances
    Medic: Cowmugger, Vitaminp
    Spy: Seric, Apoc
    Sniper: Sloth, Priest


    Right everyone does have backup positions but you all know roughly what they will be if needed. We will try give this a good go and see how these positions work out for everyone, if anyone has any serious reservations about playing these positions give me a shout. If you have not already please fill out the doodle for practice date/time and that will be announced shortly, we also try and get a practice match ro two roganised maybe starting at the weekend/next week depending on times available etc, I will discuss this on steam or mumble over the coming nights

    2.2.3 All skins are allowed.
    1. Season 3

    1.1 Division System

    All teams will be split in different Divisions according to their skill level, past Season results and stability. Each Division will then be divided into groups of 6. In those groups, every team will play each other over up to 2 maps.

    Three points will be awarded for each map won. No points are given for a loss. In case of a draw a decider round will be played, where 2 points will be given for a win and 1 point for a loss (see general rules 4.1.3 and 4.5.3).

    1.2 Playoffs

    Premiership playoffs will be held after the Season and involve the top 3 teams. The map pick system for all playoff matches is explained in the general rules [Explanation].

    The Premiership playoffs will be structured as follows:

    Round 1: #3 vs. #2
    Round 2: winner of Round 1 vs #1

    Season 3 will feature Secondary, invite-only playoffs to be held alongside Premiership playoffs. These playoffs determine only the winners of the secondary money prizes, and will not affect team promotion/demotion. Teams ranked #4-6 in Premiership and #1-4 in Division 1 will be invited to these playoffs during the last week of the season – should any of these teams refuse the invite or drop before the last week, their invite will be passed on to lower placing teams.

    The Secondary playoffs will be held as a 3-week Single Elimination tournament with the team ranked #4 in Premiership receiving a bye in the first week.

    1.3 Map Schedule

    The map pool consists of 6 maps. Switching maps is not allowed.

    Week 1: pl_badwater
    Week 2: cp_steel
    Week 3: pl_upward
    Week 4: cp_granary + koth_lakeside_final
    Week 5: cp_gravelpit

    1.4 Every team has 1 Wildcard for a Season

    Every team can use one wildcard in a Season. [Explanation]

    Wildcarded matches may not be wildcarded again.

    1.5 One merc allowed by default and up to 3 mercs if the opponent agrees

    One mercenary is allowed by default and up to 3 mercenaries are allowed if the opposing team agrees. In order for your merc to be allowed by default, he cannot be more experienced than your team overall, and have no higher equivalent 6v6 experience (season 7 and earlier excluded). Experience in other leagues is included. Opponents can allow exceptions. To use more than one merc,you will need specific approval from the opponent for each merc.

    Use the match page to present mercs and ask for allowance. Even the default merc has to be presented, so that your opponents can make sure he is not too experienced. If you wish to contest the default allowance of a merc, please contact an admin (support page), so that he may decide whether or not the merc is too experienced.

    All mercs have to be registered on etf2l. Teams caught using an unregistered merc, or a merc without their opponent’s permission, will receive a warning and possibly a default loss.

    1.6 Teams with 2 default losses will be expelled from the season

    If a team receives a second default loss, they will be expelled from the league for the running season.

    1.7 Dropped teams results will be removed if they played less than 4 matches

    Results of a dropped team will be ignored on the tables if the team has played less than 4 matches.

    1.8 Teams are not allowed to use new players after week 4

    Teams may not add new players to their roster from week 4 onwards. If the opponent agrees, the players may be used as mercs.

    1.9 Late matches are not allowed

    Every match has to be played and submitted within its week’s deadline. If the results are not submitted by Sunday, 24:00 CEST, a minor warning will be applied. This warning will not be removed, even if the match has been played.

    Results for wildcarded matches have to be submitted no later than one day after the match deadline at 24:00 CEST.

    Teams may request an extension of the match deadline by 7 days by contacting an admin. An extension is granted if the following requirements are met:

    The match was scheduled by the teams within the schedule deadline or is still unscheduled. Matches that got a default date are not eligible for an extension. This point resets when a wildcard is used as it opens a new schedule timeframe.
    The extension is requested at least 24 hours before the initially scheduled time.
    Both teams must agree to the extension, either in the match comments or by accepting/proposing the new schedule.

    If an extension is approved, the current schedule will be removed. A default date will be set for the match if the match is not scheduled by the following Monday to a day within the following play week’s match deadline. Matches without result one day after the deadline of the extension passed will lead to one minor warning for each team.

    1.10 Premiership only rules

    These rules under 1.10 are for premiership matches only and are in place to improve the professionalism and coverage of the top tier of ETF2L.

    1.10.1 STV demos for premiership matches are mandatory

    For every match in the premiership division it is mandatory to upload STV demos for all maps played. The responsibility to upload the demos is on the team that owns the server or, if the server is owned by neither team, on the team that arranged the server.

    In case of a technical failure of the server, the demo does not have to be uploaded, if it can be proven.

    Failure to upload the demo within 72 hours is punished with a minor warning for the responsible team. The warning can be removed, if the demo is provided until the deadline of the season’s catch up week. Repeated offenses will be punished with a minor warning each.

    1.10.2 Premiership players need to use their real nicknames

    All players who play a match in the premiership division must submit their nickname to the admin staff before they are eligible to play. Players may only play with their “official” nickname, letter by letter. Team tags and sponsorship additions are allowed. If a team uses a player who did not submit his nickname or uses a different nickname the team gets a minor warning. This rule may be enforced even without explicit reports from the opposing team.

    Submitting nicknames is possible via IRC or eMail, and only needs to be done once per Season.
    2. 9v9 Highlander Rules

    2.1.1 Gamemode: 9on9, classlimit 1

    The Highlander gamemode is played 9on9 with a general classlimit of 1. While classlimit 1 is not forced by the config, teams are expected to follow the classlimit at all times during the game. Teams may not have more than one of a class outside the spawn room.

    2.1.2 Rosters must have a minimum of 9 and a maximum of 20 players

    The roster must consist of a minimum of 9 players to be eligible to sign up to competitions. Teams must also adhere to a maximum of 20 players or will risk losing their right to a participation item.

    2.1.3 Minimum of 8 players needed to play a match

    If you are not able to field 9 players you can choose to play 8 vs 9. If you are not able to field 8 players, a default win will be given to the opposing team.

    2.2 Weapon Rules

    2.2.1 Banned Unlocks List. Unlocks released during the season are banned.

    The following unlocks are banned:

    High-Five Taunt
    Bombinomicon
    Bootie Time
    Jingle Belt
    Enforcer
    Holiday Punch
    Pomson
    Phlogistinator
    Vita-Saw
    Cleaner’s Carbine
    Pretty Boy’s Pocket Pistol
    Red-Tape Recorder
    Huo-Long Heater

    2.2.2 Some set hats are not allowed. Other hats and miscs are allowed.

    The following set hats are banned from use:

    Ol’ Snaggletooth
    Familiar Fez

    All other hats and misc items are allowed, including Pyrovision-granting items. If an opponent uses a banned hat during your match, you are to pause the match and ask for the player to remove it. If the opponent refuses to remove the hat, you have the right to stop the match and contact an admin with evidence to claim a default win.

    2.2.3 All skins are allowed.

    If the original weapon is allowed, reskins of that weapon are always allowed too. Pyrovision weapons with new abilities, such as taunts, are not considered reskins.
