ASIA Highlander - Season 8
Before we get started, we’d just like to welcome everybody back, and thank you for returning for this season! We hope you have all enjoyed the small season break, and are ready for another season of Highlander. Respawn would also like to take this chance to thank everyone who has participated in our league thus far, without the support of this incredible community we wouldn't be able to do this. As always, if you've been around a while or are completely new to Competitive TF2, we've got you covered.
This region will feature only one division, Main, but we are open to expanding and further supporting the growth of the Asian Highlander scene going forward. The Regular season will make use of the Swiss System and the Playoffs season will be conducted using the Page Playoffs system. We are no longer making use of the sister seed match pairing system as we have found it doesn't properly solidify our admin-seeded placements the way we intended it to, and have opted to left Swiss to take care of that.
The Regular Season will feature two maps per week yet again, continuing our 9 map pool. This will mean you see more of the maps you like, and less of the ones you don't. However, from this season onwards we are moving playoffs only back to the "ABBA" system, more info on this can be found in our recent news post here - essentially Payload/Stopwatch formats will be a Best of 3 Halves scenario, meaning one team will need to win Two Halves to win.
Please remember that you NEED to be recording POV demos, and holding onto those POV demos for at least 3 months after the season. Failure to present the requested POV/s upon request by an administrator will result in a 6-month ban.
Much of the feedback provided to us via last season's poll has been taken into consideration and much of it implemented in some form. We hope our news post on the overall league changes has clarified how we approach feedback and poll data when approaching a season and why we felt we needed to run an experimental season and how it will change things going forward.
Majority of rule changes for this season can be found here!
Upward Pro will be returning to default Upward and Prowater will be changed to a new pro-orientated version of Badwater if it is ready in time for this season otherwise we will be running Badwater pro v12.
