Season 4 Starts!

After a long and painfully long delay we have finally started Season 4 of the ENSL!

Due to some issues with updating the site and exam periods we have been unable to start the league until now and we’re not going to waste any time, the 1st default match time is TOMORROW at 20cet! You may play this match between Sunday and Wednesday.

I will explain some changes to this season that will hopefully improve this season.


Divisions
We have opted for 3 larger divisions this season with our main division holds the 8 top clans and divisions 2 and 3 both holding 9 clans each.

Each clan is to be scheduled to play every other team in their division once.

We will be asking each clan to play 2 other clans in their division each week according to our schedule. Each of these games will also be played on 2 maps.

We recognize that it would be too much for clans to learn 4 maps a week so instead, we repeat the same combination of maps within each week. In other words, their will still only be 2 maps a week.


The ENSL ‘Week’
We are changing the definition of what we consider a week according to the ENSL to allow for 2 matches to be played.

The week is now to be started on a Sunday and divided into 2 halves.

Half 1: Sunday – Wednesday
Half 2: Thursday – Saturday

The default times for playing your matches are at the beginning of each half. i.e. Sunday 20cet and Thursday 20cet.

If you are unable to play you’re match at the default time slot you may _request_ to arrange it for later in that half of the week using the agenda system on the CL page.


Mop-Up Week
In previous seasons their have been many troubles with rescheduling of matches and many teams abused their ability to do this. So this season we are not allowing ANY rescheduling of matches. If you miss your match within the allocated time slot, you may not choose another time to play it.

As not all games will be played (for various reasons such as real life problems, roster, servers etc) we are holding 1 week at the end of the season called the “mop-up week”.

Before this week, we will schedule each team to play a maximum of 2 games they missed during the season, these two matches are default to the 1st two each team missed.

If for some reason your clan missed more than 2 matches during the season, you are not guaranteed to be able to play any mop-up matches.

Map List

Week 1+2: tanith / veil
Week 3+4: veil / caged
Week 5+6: eclipse_ensl / lost
Week 7+8: metal / origin
Week 8+9: tanith / orbital

Server Variables
‘mp_blockscripts’, the default value for the season is still ‘1’. If a team requests the value to be ‘0’ during any match, the other team MUST agree, then and only then may it be set to ‘0’. If this is questioned at any time with just cause, the admins may set the result of the match to be void.

‘cal_screenshots’, the default value for the season will be ‘0’. We feel the screenshots annoyed more people than were physically checked by the referees. If before a match any team requests for screenshots to be used and checked, they still MUST be used.

for more information on all of the above changes, please refer to our rules

Good Luck!

Having to play some matches with mp_bs 0 and some with 1 will be annoying for some clans. Either europe decides to change to 0, or we stick with 1. Making a poll and then not assuming the community's vote is just nonsense (the poll said 0).

vara, people post links directly to one option in the poll. It isn't substantial as a reason to change.

You don't have to play any on bs 0, 'just say "no!"'.

lump: the point isnt the maps themselves. We already know them, all too well. The thing is you have to practice each map against each team. Playing veil versus armless isnt the same as playing it versus knife.

Different teams have different strenghts, and play the maps differently.

That's what you practice before a match, not to learn the maps themselves.

Possibly something to do with the transfer of the test site over to the official site.

Whatever the cause- sign-up dates are ignored during the first week of every season.

so people that sign up now are allowed to play the first week (till wednesday according to the new system) but not after that until theyre "officially" in the team?

That's how previous seasons have worked- and no-ones had issue with it.

Due to the delay in the website, I imagine you'll be allowed to transfer up until match week 2 (so in 7 days time).
