edit: alright, looks like this is pretty popular. here are a few guidelines and rules for when we do this:

- listen to your team captain
- don't argue with teammates. if they piss you off just mute them and listen to the captain
- if you don't get in the game when we start, you will be replaced by an able player
- pick the class that you sign up as
- have fun and kick ass

---

hey guys i wanted to try an experiment. i've been hearing (actually i just heard it from rtil) that some people are interested in trying highlander mode for the tf2 server one of these days so i had an idea.

explanation: highlander mode is a mode in which 9 people per team can play, and there can only be 1 person per class. in other words, no doubles, no triples, no teams full of snipers or kamikaze pyros, just people playing their favorite classes and playing the roles in each team they were meant to play.

due to the tactical nature of this mode, i was thinking it'd be a cool idea to have a full game sometime with designated leaders, alltalk off, maybe some reserved slots and some of the coolest maps out there (i'm thinking frontier). off the top of my head i was thinking some good possible captains could be ropesnake, ashington, isabella or zappy-tan because well they all kill everything and people kind of follow them already anyway. don't take it too seriously, i'm just recommending them because they're good, im not obliging anyone to doing anything here

a lot of people are good at certain classes and really cling to specific ones or can only play them, so i thought this would be pretty fun for people. it'd rely specifically on good teamwork and not as much on which team is stacked full of spies or which team had more medic heavy combos. our only hangup is that we don't have an 18-slot server, but i heard the cost difference was only like $2 and admins were considering this anyway, so if we do this, i'd totally donate $2 if people wanted me to so we can see how it went. who knows, it might be fun to have this occasionally, just as a thing we do sometimes if it works out. i'm all for it, i personally love strategy and maybe some of you guys do too

now that that textwall is out of the way, in the event that people want to give it a try, here's a potential signup list. lemme know what you guys think/want. if we do this routinely, each week should have a different signup so people can sign up for different classes and the leaders can change

RED
Captain: Spite
Co-Captain: Billy


1. Scout = Jeinu
2. Soldier = J_Seed // Fuzz
3. Pyro = Dilly
4. Demoman = Spite // Kott
5. Heavy = Billy
6. Engineer = eman
7. Medic = karmakaze
8. Sniper = Crabarms
9. Spy = BP7


BLU
Captain: Zappy-tan
Co-Captain: Isabella


1. Scout = joeybang
2. Soldier = Taokaka
3. Pyro = iinnkk
4. Demoman = REDM // Bang Shishigami
5. Heavy = Comrade Commissar
6. Engineer = Zappy-tan // SHADOWFOX2
7. Medic = rtil
8. Sniper = Isabella
9. Spy = anigen

BACKUP POOL
Some people may not be able to play during the event if it goes down, so it's a good idea to have people who would willingly join in as backups. Mainly for people who didn't make it to the list in time. Attributed in color or preferred classes based on what they'd sub in for in-case anyone can't attend.

1. RobHalford (BLU, any class)

Quote from: ropesnake
word of warning i belong to a goon group that has over 2000 members and 5 separate servers and when they do calls for highlander they just barely get enough people to play it could be next to impossible to organize this cuz despite what jseed says ive only seen the server full 2 times total.

edit: competitive players do 6v6 because its much easier to organise and the class rotation is something like 1 demo 1 medic 2 sollys and 2 scouts if this highlander doesnt work we could try that instead

it might be hard to organize but let\\\'s give it a shot anyway. also i agree with your edit, 6v6 might be a good idea if this doesn\\\'t work out.

also the list is updated guys

it seems like around 7/8pm eastern the server is most busy, and i have probably seen it full maybe half a dozen times or more for a few rounds. this is usually on weekend nights
