We are all morbin for Highlander Season 4, but first...

Righto righto, so we were all hoping for it, and congratulations to fuck it we brawl and all that, but come on, a Morb Fortress 2 win would have been history books kind-of-stuff, you know. Anyways, we have the winners and runner-ups for Highlander to congratulate, and awards to hand out. Congratulations to all the winners of Season 3 of Highlander, and we hope to see you in Season 4.

Congratulations Premier winners red pandas!

Another season and another consecutive win for the fellas on the red pandas roster. With their new name and a couple of new pick ups, the roster came in swinging blitz through the season, totaling their third consecutive premier championship. While the score line suggests a dominant performance from red pandas, rascals weren't pushovers. In particular, JP, the newest player to rascals tore up the pandas players on heavy, dropping fantastic stats throughout the entire series. As well as JP, flow, as per usual, was able to help rascals close the gap in kills between the two teams and give ohai a run for his money. Unfortunately it wasn't quite enough to beat red pandas' secret weapon. Sheep came in to the grand final and, round after the round, put up insane numbers getting the most kills over the entire series. Even on payload he managed to top frag in the 2nd round of Cornwater making him well deserving of not only the best scout award, but the Premier MVP that allowed red pandas to finish the season on top.

Congratulations Intermediate winners Patent Pending!

This season of intermediate had the closest competition amongst our entire league. However, only two could make it into the grand final. Patent Pending, who has won open, main and now intermediate took on the The Bakes Team, who climbed their way up from the lower page playoff's to fight in the closest grand final this season. Starting off on Warmtic, The Bakes Team took control early with the flank of fuzz and Pipelin12 providing large quantities of picks, allowing them to swiftly close out map one. However, while they had a strong start on Product for map 2, the end of the 2nd round marked the turning point for Patent Pending. Performing a reverse sweep, Patent Pending managed to narrowly close out the map 3 - 2 with both teams' snipers, Exquizit and var, having a field day dropping 40 and 45 kills respectively. It all came down to Vigil. The final map began with The Bakes Team coming out all cylinders firing holding Patent Pending to an offensive push time of 10:20, allowing themselves to comfortably complete the map with almost 2 minutes left. But that's when it all came crashing down. Patent Pending kicked it into overdrive. Starting on defense for round two, Patent Pending held The Bakes Team to a time of 15:24, on top of locking them out of last, meaning they where unable to capture all four points. Patent Pending then proceeded to capture the first three points in a very swift 3:51 with Berdo, var, hobo, TUX and fennex achieving at least 20 kill each. It all came down to the final round where Patent Pending seemed to be unstoppable. Destined to win, they pushed with a fantastic time of 7:32 and standing their ground on defense, Patent Pending completed the series 2 to 1 and won the grand finals with an incredible showing from both bappo and var dropping a casual 24 kills each with a DPM of 651 and 486 respectively.

Congratulations Open winners fuck it we brawl!

When the name 'fuck it we brawl' comes to mind, the first thought is usually something along the lines of "that team that beat Morb Fortress in the HL grand finals". While they crushed the united dream of the community that was Morb Fortress getting first place, they did so with grace, and proved why they deserved that win. Starting off on the first map of the grand final Ashville, fuck it we brawl came out swinging, securing 2 consecutive rounds. However, Morb didn't go down without a fight, and proceeded to claim a round themselves. But unfortunately for the dreamers, fuck it we brawl came back with a vengeance. Lead by multi and his 31 kill game, fuck it will brawl closed out the map 3-to-1. The ozfortress staff we're so impressed by multi's performance they offered him a spot on the admin team... On to map two, which proved to be one of the closest maps of the season. Fuck it we brawl set the pace, rounding out the map in 7:40 with multi and bobo leading the charge. Despite this, Morb Fortress put their best collective foot forward and came out the gates fuming for a win. Even with all their might, Morb were unable to break the wall that was fuck it we brawl and narrowly lost the map, despite new blood Superevilironman's outstanding performance, top fragging the map with an impressive 23 kill game. Unsuprising, Morb Fortress 2 - Morbheads were graceful in defeat. congratulating the deserving winners fuck it we brawl, and showing to everyone why they deserve not only the Friendliest Team award, but the Most Improved Team, for making it all the way to the grand final after 3 seasons of hard work and dedication, showing to us all that anything is possible if you morb up.
