Welcome back!

That’s right, just as we promised we’re back providing you the next season of ozfortress Highlander. Just like last season, we aim to bring you fresh and healthy highlander competition similar to that of the last season with a few quality of life improvements including whitelist modifications, map pool alterations and changes to the playoff system.


You can sign up for Highlander Season 2 from Saturday the 24th of September, up until Thursday the 6th of October. We aim to have seeding out sometime between Friday and Saturday before the season begins, with the season running from Monday the 10th of October to Friday the 2nd of December. When signing up, please ensure you specify which classes each player will be playing, this will aid us in seeding your team and deciding on player restrictions.
