Sign Ups Galore

Although a few weeks overdue, welcome to a new year at the NSL. For the first time since the Natural Selection 2 World Championships, people outside of the leadership of the NSL or AusNS2 are organizing competitive events for players outside specific communities. Tudy and friends from TAW have been working hard at organizing a tournament for players and teams with little to no experience in competitive play. Also, Schwa has organized a tournament for Division 4 level teams. I want to commend all the people involved in organizing these events. The NSL isn't always able to satisfy the need for more events because of the available manpower and its own schedule. It's refreshing to see players step up, put themselves out there, and contribute to fill a need in the community. More info below.

TAW Newcomer Tournament

WHEN: Sundays, February 1st & 8th at 11AM EST / 16 GMT / 17 CET

You can head over to Tudy's post on the UWE forums for more specific information.

There's also a lot of ways to help out with this tournament. You can be a referee, caster, provide servers, and even provide mentorship for players and teams.
