Have you missed the Weekly Highlander Mixes? We're sure many of you have! That's why we're bringing them back to kick off 2014 with a bang!
Not sure what Weekly Highlander Mixes are? They are basically two Highlander maps played each week by two teams scrambled against each other in a fight to the end!
Players can post their registrations each week into a sign-up thread starting every Monday, and the staff in charge balance the teams to ensure that games are as close as possible. The Mixes will be played on alternating Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM GMT+8 to ensure that everyone gets a chance to participate. All are welcome!
We are well aware of the issues that plagued the old Mixes, and so we have come up with a whole new set of rules (along with some strict penalties for rulebreakers) to avoid a repeat of the past. Of course, this will only work if everyone cooperates, and so we ask that you carefully read the rules to ensure everyone will have a good time! We'd also deeply appreciate any feedback given after every Mix is played, so we can continually improve how things are run.
Excited already? The first Mix will be on Friday, 10th of January 2014 at 8:00 PM GMT+8, so head on over to the first sign-up thread here to claim your spot if you can make it! Remember, classes are assigned on a first-come-first-served basis!
