Team Fortress 2 - Competitive Formats


What is highlander?

Highlander, in which each team has one of each class for a total of 9, is one of the most popular game formats across competitive TF2’s history. When it came onto the scene in North America it quickly dwarfed all other formats in player count. In Highlander, players mainly play Payload, Attack/Defend, and King of the Hill maps.

Why should I play highlander?

This format is great for you if you enjoy your favourite class being viable at all times and always having something to do. Because of the higher team size, it plays more similarly to Casual than Prolander or Sixes, making the learning curve a little less steep for new players. Some argue that it is the most authentic format because all 9 classes are played at all times.


What is prolander?

Prolander, the newest competitive format in TF2, is a 7v7 one-class-limit format conceived on the idea of minimizing player count while maintaining class diversity and dynamic gameplay. It focuses on Payload, Attack/Defend, and King of the Hill maps.

Why should I play prolander?

If you want to play a format where all classes are viable, but you can change classes to fit how you play, and don’t like being stuck on a single class, Prolander is for you! It allows teams to be dynamic and reactive in their lineups, for example running a Pyro to counter a powerful Spy, running an Engineer on defense for extra tank ability, and other such reasons. Fortunately, there is no strict meta on what classes are run at what times; while certain mainstay classes that are almost always run like Medic or Sniper are there, even the top teams have their own unique lineups and playstyles, using their creativity to its fullest. Due to the lower player count than Highlander, the game plays more smoothly and faster paced.

After a tournament, we did a survey to find out if the people who tried Prolander enjoyed it over 90% of players responded that they enjoyed it, some for the following reasons:

"Yes it was fun to constantly guess which off class they are using."

"Yes! 7s is my favorite format. More dynamic than 6s, less clunky/congested than HL."

"Yes, it as fun to play competitive for the first time, and I liked that you could class switch."

"Prolander is my favorite format to watch competitive TF2, and it was fun to play."

"It was an interesting take on highlander that really mixes it up. There was a lot of discussion on my team on what maps we needed certain clases on for strategy purposes."


What is No Restriction Sixes?

No restriction sixes is exactly what the name sounds like. It is a format of six players on either side and there are no restrictions. No weapons banned, no class restrictions. It's a true free for all. It is basically like a smaller version of the casual mode settings. In the pilot season we will be playing on 5cp, Payload and KOTH maps.

Why should I play No Restriction Sixes?

If you want to try something that is completely different from any other competitive format out there right now.


What is Traditional Sixes?

The staple of the Competitive TF2 scene, Traditional Sixes, takes six players and pits them against each other in an intense battle on 5cp and KoTH maps. Generally Sixes is played with a squad of a two Scouts, two Soldiers, a Demoman, and a Medic, with opportunities to offclass throughout a match.

Why should I play Traditional Sixes?

Sixes is a tight balance of teamplay and aim, and is TF2's main competitive gamemode. If you're looking for a rewarding experience and great competition, you've found the right place.
