International Gaming League is proud to announce our TF2 Highlander Ladder.
With support from great community sites like backpack.tf & teamfortress.tv IGL has gained quite the following! With over 160 teams registered for June’s ladders, it’s sure to be an exciting journey to the top of the ladder!
So… What makes IGL ladders so great?
You’ll always have time for IGL! Matches 24×7 – 365
Play in another league? Don’t think you have time? You’ll always have time for IGL! Teams can register for an hourly match pool where the captains vote for the map of the hour. Once the top of the hour hits, teams are paired against someone of their skill set & the match begins! There’s also the traditional ladder challenge feature available as well, where you can challenge a specific team, date/time & map of your choice. We’re totally flexible!
Awesome ranking system
Each team starts with 100 points. If you beat a team with more points than you, you get 5% of their points. If you beat a team ranked lower than you, you receive 2.5% of their points. We also award teams who go on a hot streak, by providing 1 additional point per win once you’ve reached 5. Want to climb to the top fast? Challenge the big guys! You don’t have much to lose; but they do!
Every 15 days the ladder divisions are re-aligned to ensure you’re always competing versus teams within your own skill & activity level
We provide EVERYTHING!
Don’t have a server? Don’t have a team? That’s no problem at IGL! IGL provides servers in all 4 corners of the continental USA, as well as North & South Central servers. Thats a total of over 60 servers in 6 locations. You’ll always have a great ping! We find the best server location for you & your opponent then reserve it specifically for your match!Our advanced team builder feature allows captains to invite friends via email, or recruit players off of the free agent system. Players can also apply directly to teams from the team profile page, join automatically via password, or a captain can invite a player to their team from the free agent list, or players’ profile. There’s many ways to find a team at IGL!
