Sixes League Staff Changes
In case you missed it, late last year we welcomed Celph and Hawk to the Sixes team. We now have two new additions to the team, emgee and HUNGRY.4.EGGS. Both players bring with them a wealth of experience, and their inclusions reflects our continued commitment to bolstering the Sixes Admin team in preparation for a big 2024. We do, however, say goodbye to a team of ants in his prime who is stepping down. ants has contributed tremendously to the league, including his stint as the Head Sixes Admin, and we thank him for all his hard work.
The Sixes Autumn ‘24 Admin Team is:
Head Sixes Admin: multi
Upper Division (Premier/High) Admins:
Lower Division (Intermediate/Main/Open) Admins:
Art Team Changes
We would also like to welcome dezi to the Art Team! He has been hard at work on our Spring ‘23 Awards, and we’re excited to show off his hard work soon.
With bigger events planned this year and beyond, expanding our Art Team with talented artists and designers will be crucial. We are blessed to have so many artistic individuals in our community, so if that’s you apply for the Art Team here.
Upper Division Format Changes
Sixes Autumn ‘24 will see significant changes to how our Upper Divisions are run. This includes a shift to regular season pick/ban as well as a complete overhaul of the playoffs system. You can read about these changes in detail here, and provide any feedback through the poll as discussed below.
Sixes Post-Season Poll
This post-season poll is shorter than most, making it easier than ever for you to provide feedback. The poll includes an opportunity for feedback regarding the Upper division format changes, as well as proposed changes for the Lower divisions surrounding the map pool and progressive timer.
Complete the Sixes Spring ‘23 Post-Season Poll here.
Speaking of the map pool, have you done your map vote as described here? Every vote counts, so make sure you get yours in before voting closes on Sunday the 21st of January 2024.
Still to Come
There are several things still to come, including the Highlander Staff Changes and the major ruleset refactor, so keep your eyes peeled!
