The remainder of the maps will be familiar appearances from Season 14.


Staff Changes



We will have slight staff changes for this upcoming season. Icy will be stepping down from staff and we are welcoming Ta5K onto our Highlander Staff. We have shifted some staff positions to accommodate. We would like to thank Icy for their time and efforts spent volunteering, and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.

The new list of Highlander staff for Season 15 will be as follows:

The staff list is available to view on our website.


Important Info for Invite Teams


Invite will have 8 spots this season, with at least one spot reserved for qualifier teams if needed. Placement of teams in qualifiers or one of the remaining spots will be up to admin discretion but is largely determined by previous experience.

The regular season for Invite will span 7 weeks with an 8-team round-robin.
Invite playoffs will be played as a 4-team double-elimination.

Before the season starts, your division admin will invite you to a discussion group for Invite team leaders. The team leader listed on the roster will be both the point of contact and the one invited to the discussion group to ensure the meeting isn’t overly crowded. If the team leader does not wish to attend, an appointed teammate must take their place.


Qualifiers


Qualifiers would be run from May 27th through May 29th as a 4-team round-robin if necessary. Your admin will keep in touch to ensure that any questions regarding scheduling are answered. As stated above, please contact your division admin if your team would like to be considered for Qualifiers. Teams will be notified if they are in Qualifiers once registration closes; this is to make sure no teams form at the last minute.

Invite Prize Money Distribution and Team Fees (in USD)


Team Fees: $153 ($17 per starter)
1st place will receive $516
2nd place will receive $350
3rd place will receive $158


How to Find a Team to Join



Finding a team is not hard, but it does require you to put in a little effort.

Players New to Competitive:

We encourage you to make a post in the website’s Looking For Team (LFT) section and also post in our Discord server’s #looking-for-team-hl channel.

You should also contact leaders of teams who need a player. You can find them listed in the Teams Looking for Players (LFP) section and also the LFP section of our Discord server’s #looking-for-player-hl channel.

Players Experienced in Competitive:

We particularly encourage you to make a thread on the RGL HL LFT forums section. This will allow you to advertise yourself to higher-profile teams.

Browsing the LFP section of the forums will also present you with many teams that are looking to recruit players.
