Highlander signups open now!
It is an action-packed off-season for Sixes, but no so much for Highlander, however that changes now! Welcome back, Highlander Spring '23 is just around the corner and we hope you are as ready for it as we are.
You can sign up for Highlander Spring '23 from Saturday the 23rd of September, up until Saturday the 7th of October 2023. We aim to have seeding out by Monday the 9th of October at the latest, before the season starts. The season starts Wednesday the 11th of October 2023.
Sixes signups open tomorrow (Sunday 24th September)!
We're back, with a new season naming scheme! There's a bit that we've changed based off of your feedback of Sixes Season 37, and we hope you are excited for Sixes Spring '23 (S38)! In this off-season, we're running our second iteration of the Experimental Cup series, namely Experimental Cup 2. The feedback of the changes being tested in Experimental Cup 2 will directly impact Sixes Spring '23 (S38).
You can sign up for Sixes Spring '23 (S38) from Sunday the 24th of September, up until Wednesday the 4th of October 2023. We aim to have seeding out by Friday the 6th of October, if not Saturday the 7th of October at the latest, before the season starts. The season starts Sunday the 8th of October 2023.
You may have seen our most recent update post bid farewell to three of our league admins; Bakes, frydog and snazzy. While we wish them the best, we have two new league admin pickups. Please welcome wils to the Sixes team, and Kai to the Highlander team! We're excited to see both of them in their respective roles, and hope you are too!
In the coming weeks and months, we'll be simplifying the names of roles throughout the league to be a bit more intuitive, and more in-line with what most of you would expect. We'll let you know when this happens, don't worry.
Season Branding changes
We outlined it in our previous update post that we were making some changes to the season branding, part cosmetic and part utilitarian for players. The focus of the change is to make it easier for players to recognize or recall a season by the time of the year, rather than a season number. We won't be ditching the season number entirely, but just limiting it to headings and whatnot.
We're also moving away from separate season art for both seasonal leagues, allowing a bit more time for our artists to make one design, or perhaps (small spoiler) for us to work on new teaser content outside of the usual promo images.
Global, Sixes & Highlander changes will come later!
With our Experimental Cup 2 tournament running just over the signups period, there will be some changes from the cup that will come later, however most ruleset updates will be coming in the next couple of days, we're just holding off to ensure we haven't missed anything!
Thank you all
Seasons 37 & 4 for the most part went smoothly, but we want to make sure everyone is aware that we are working on gradual changes to both seasonal leagues to address commonly raised issues, be it; division sizes, bye matches, format changes or something else. Over the coming couple of weeks, there will be a few announcements not related to our seasonal leagues or competitions that we feel players will (hopefully) like, and we are excited for Spring '23 and 2024!
