If you are going to post, please don’t post stuff that you don’t actually mean or is not relevant towards these kinds of threads. I don’t appreciate it nor does anyone else.
This goes to everyone. Thanks.
I am just going to state my opinion, although I do understand wanting to experience maps you haven’t played before.
bad maps are no longer played for good reasons. I would rather us not waste time and resources re-learning lessons we have already learned years ago.
new cascade should be tested because its new and has an active developer willing to work with us. we can find new issues and fix them, and add it into the rotation this season.
None of the other maps will be added back in. because you guys will play them, re-experience the same things as its the same map, and we will repeat this process again in a year.
No, 5cp and HL isnt fun and will never be fun due to the gamemode’s innate issues with the format. 6’s works with 5cp because 6’s was designed around that gamemode. Vanguard was made with HL in mind iirc and we played it a total of 3 times in UGC(?)
ramjam is too big of a map for koth and while yes, we haven’t played it since UGC, the issues that were presented to the map developer were ignored and was not fixed. Also don’t use UGC as an example for anything good.
borneo is a very long map. When your best pick as spy defending last is to sap the teleporter, its a bad map. when your engineer on offence runs full time EE for ez teles, its a bad map. Its the anthesis of vigil with cap times of 10 minutes not being bad.
Anyone remember badwater_pro? I think we are on version 20 of that map.
anyone remember barnblitz_pro???
Again, I understand you guys wanting to experience those maps that you haven’t before, but do them in your in-house pug groups instead.
I Don’t see anything wrong with the forums? everything appears to be working correctly.
Reminder that there is a difference from Free Speech and Consequence Free Speech.
Free speech means the government cant do anything about your saying slurs.
That does not mean that there are not political, social, or cultural repercussions to your actions.
One of the goals of Engineer.tf is to be able to provide adequate resources for aspiring engineer mains to improve. To assist in that function we have created a page on the website that allows you to view, search for, and download STV demos from official Invite RGL Highlander matches. This is a valuable resource that allows mentees to watch and learn how the best play at the highest level of Highlander. Because these are STV demos, anyone can benefit from this resource, even if you don’t play engineer.
you can view our STV Archive on our website at https://engineer.tf/demos.php
Hi this is Mothership. Team “In Da Hoop” (Team name is a work in progress) is looking for skilled and dedicated players for HL season 9!
We are trying to make a mature team with a good atmosphere. We do team map reviews, demo reviews, and of course scrims every week. In addition we will be having an optional non-tf2 related game night every week to take off the edge. Don’t let the fun aspects fool you though, as we are competitive tryhards in nature and will try our best to constantly seek personal improvement. Our hope is to not be a monkey brained team.
Our current focus for classes are subs
The roster is currently as follows:
Scout - Matches_
Soldier - Dubthink
Pyro - Despy
Demoman - Mothership
Heavy - Patches
Engineer - Rekabet
Medic - Ben
Sniper - Jimsgims
Spy - Godo
Sniper - Powerpuker
Thanks for reading! Please ask to tryout if you enjoy a fun, non-toxic, environment!

tbh, you should be LFT advanced/challenger.
hey guys. figured it would be neat to have a poll to see what the most liked HL map is, and the least liked. This is a ranked choice poll, so you should rank all the maps in order from your favorite to your least favorite. I’ll publish the full poll results with round breakdown in a few days.
The archive has been updated with the Week 2 STVs. We also updated it last week as well. A few changes/updates is that for this season is that we will be updating the archive every match day now that we are able to publicly access the match STVs due to the new RGL rules. We have also updated the archive to include the qualifier matches from this season.
basically what everyone else said. The only thing I can really add on is that with these new forums, we can actually develop new features due to the coding language it is based on. The old forums were php based and most of the addons or plugins I would of used on them stop being developed years ago. To put into perspective, the old forums were installed in November of 2018. Since then, the old forums have only had 5 minor updates that we don’t need to push. While these current forums have gone through 2 different major updates just in the past year.
fun person that I recall from the old days. Will make a good teammate.
TL;DR: 5cp should never be played in HL again.
5cp just isn’t suited towards the way highlander plays and how many classes exist. As Wall already stated earlier, its just a stalemate mess regardless of what map you are playing on. I have played on Gullywash, Process, Glassworks, Vanguard, and Sunshine and can tell you with certainty that we are far better off without those maps.
I would highly suggest that people first try to scrim on 5cp before trying to push the idea that we should relearn lessons that we have already suffered through. Take some time and effort to learn why things are the way they are before trying to assert that its a good idea to revert. Unless you take the effort to learn why we don’t play 5cp anymore, your argument is as good as arguing that we should all go back to UGC.
This is not to say that a cp map could be viable for HL. However I am against us trying to force variety by forcing maps and gamemodes we already know are bad. You need to solve the fundamental issues with 5cp before you could even attempt to play it again in HL.
Every time I see an argument for bringing back 5CP, it just makes me cringe. The only 5CP map I could accept coming back is vanguard because it was specifically designed for highlander. Maps like gullywash and process were atrocious to play. Sitting outside a choke for minutes on end waiting for your spy or soldier to be able to get a miraculous pick against a team that is only looking for them save for the demo spamming the choke is terrible. Last pushes are always so hard to complete due to the nature of the last points on those maps allowing for significant kiting and easy control of the last point for the defense. Without 3+ picks prior to exchanging ubers, I would honestly put last push success rate at like 20%. 5CP is an incredibly slow gamemode that doesn’t reward proactive aggression or strategy.
