United Gaming Clans (UGC) was founded in 2002 as Team Fortress Classic (TFC) and Counter-Strike (CS) league. Currently they are the largest TF2 league in the world with over 10,000 unique players in the current season of their 9v9 (Highlander), 6v6 and 4v4 leagues.

Divisions[edit]

The UGC league separates teams into 5 distinct divisions. These divisions come in the order as follows: Iron, Steel, Silver, Gold, and the highest division; Platinum.

Format[edit]

UGC runs three seasons a year in all TF2 formats. Seasons typically start in January, June and September. Each season is comprised of 8 regular season weeks and 5 playoff weeks. Teams are placed into skill divisions based on the combined experience on the roster. During the regular season, teams will play against opponents with a similar rank win/loss streak. For the playoffs, the Top 8 or Top 16 teams in a division are placed into a title bracket. Platinum and Gold divisions play in a Double Elimination bracket while Silver, Steel and Iron divisions play in a Single Elimination bracket. Grand Finals are played in a Best of 3 Maps format. Each team in the finals map can pick 1 of the 3 maps to be played from the season map pool. The tie breaker map is selected by Admins.

Regular season matches are played on single maps, in 2 halves. Depending on the game type, the win conditions differ:

  • On 5CP maps, the first half is played until the time limit runs out, or one team wins 4 rounds. The second half ends once the time limit runs out, or the other team wins 4 rounds or when one team has won their 5th cumulative round. In case of a tie after both halves, an overtime round is played, which is won by capturing all points once. If overtime is inconclusive, a "sudden death" round is played.
  • On King of the Hill maps, the first half of the map ends only when one team wins 3 rounds. The second half ends if the other team wins 3 rounds or when one team wins their 4th cumulative round.
  • Attack/Defend and Payload maps are played as best of 3 stopwatch rounds. Teams alternate between attacking and defending every round, and each team defends once in a half. The round is won by whichever team captures the most points the fastest.

Highlander[edit]

UGC's Highlander league is the largest of the 3 formats they play in TF2 with just over 8,000 unique players. There are five different regions for their Highlander league: North America (NA), Europe (EU), Asia, Australia/NZ (AUS/NZ) and South America (SA). There are also different skill-based divsions for the NA, EU and AUS/NZ leagues.

Divisions[edit]

In the order of the highest skill division to the lowest:

  • Platinum - Top Tier. This division is for people considered to be at the top of their game. This division arguably requires the most time, dedication, coordination, and skill to compete in.
  • Gold - 2nd Tier. This is for people who have a lot of competitive experience and a high skill level with a desire to get better at the game.
  • Silver - 3rd Tier. This is for people who can list more than a couple seasons of experience and who are more committed to the upward path towards Gold/Platinum.
  • Steel - 4th Tier. The first "skill tier." This is for people with a little competitive experience to people who have at a couple of seasons under their belt.
  • Iron - 5th/Bottom Tier. Entry-level aimed at players with no prior competitive experience. Considered a "special case" division.
