And So It Is

August EU Draft Tournament Canceled

Due to low player turn out, the August edition of the EU Draft Tournament has been canceled. Although 25 players signed up, enough for 4 teams, only half the players showed up on Saturday. If there's enough interest in pushing the dates back a week, we can resume the tournament. Please leave a comment below if that's something you'd like to see. Also leave a comment if you enjoyed the format or not and why.

Competitive Mod Open Forum

An impromptu meeting of the Competitive Mod team is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, August 24th at 1PM EDT / 1900 CEST. It's to discuss a revision of Iteration 3 and make a more solid version before Season 5 starts. Because this meeting was scheduled with short notice, another meeting the following Sunday, August 31st at 1PM EDT / 1900 CEST will also be held for anyone who would like to join us.

Both will be held in the NSL Teamspeak (ip: in the Competitive Mod channel.

Sign Ups - Nations Cup & Season 5

Just a reminder that it's not too late to sign up for the Nations Cup and Season 5. Check the previous post for more info and instructions on how to make teams and sign up for each contest. If we don't get at least 4 national teams for the Nations Cup, it will be canceled.
