The ENSL 10th Season Signups Open

Hello,

As teams have been prepping up and summer is getting closer, we are opening the signups for yet another ENSL Season. You can sign up your existing registered team as usual, by simply going to team menu and ticking the 'Next season candidate' -checkbox. Signups will be open 2 weeks and the first week will start straight after. It will be few days shorter than other weeks. Naturally we are also seeking predictors and referees. Contact staff if you want to participate.

Signup Deadline: 16th April 18CET

The system will be the traditional ENSL league system. Every team plays one game per week against every other team in one's division. After the league stage, the two teams with most points in each division play a division Final. This means a division with size of 6 teams lasts 6 weeks. Division sizes will be adjusted depending on the number of clans signed up but it will 1-2 divisions.

Preliminary maps for the next season are the following:

1st Week: ns_metal & ns_tanith
2nd Week: ns_tanith & ns_veil
3rd Week: ns_veil & ns_origin
4th Week: ns_origin & ns_orbital
5th Week: ns_orbital & ns_eclipse
6th Week: ns_eclipse & ns_metal
Finals: chosen by the teams from the list above

Here are the instructions for signin up just in case you need.

  1. Each team member should register an account for these sites.
  2. The leader should create the team and tick the checkbox called "Next season candidate".
  3. Each team member should then join the team in question.
  4. After this, the leader can accept the members in.


If you have any questions, just drop me a pm on IRC or use other methods. Please be happy to drop the Newplayer Guide to anyone new! Also there is a topic for any improvements or ideas.

Yours,
ENSL Staff

from here on, admins need to have videocamera and d20 dice and list of maps on paper. Every time teams start to play official, admin just records his dicerolling and tells them what maps to play!

Well.. the maps that dont work for clanplay might if we chance the team setup? :)
7v7 could work on eon, hamasaki, lucid etc? Ever tried this stupid idea? :P

Ie Admirable | coolclan

Why would we play 7v7 on a game that was designed and balanced around 6v6 play?

Hamasaki is a hive location on ns_ayumi aka ns_coldturn.
Lucid is a nice fast map like Eclipse, and plays well 6v6 apart from the totally imba junction siege.

As for ns_eon I don't fully understand why people hate it!

eon is too big imo, and all you need to do is turret farm the centre of the map and whore the res around it.

afaik ben was making a more "competetive" friendly ns_nothing which had no lifts and was tweaked a little.

I doubt it was finished and im guessing it was riddled with stuck bugs around every corner.

There was a playable version, that fixed several balance issues, but also killed much of the "spirit" of the map. They even played it in one of the CAL Season 10 preseason weeks, from what I can remember.

I remember testing that, dunno if it was anything to do with ben.. they'd removed the lifts and viaduct hive was just a tall room instead of a deep room, it shit though.

Ben made all the changes, so it has everything to do with him.

For me nothing was just an oversized map with boring corridors. It had its moments tho, in bigger scale matches we had in that galactic NS tournament or whatever it was called. The one where people could choose to play only as aliens or marines during a season, and ofc there were only 2 teams. Very exciting :]

Sex is a process of combining and mixing genetic traits, often resulting in the specialization of organisms into male and female reproductive roles.
