How do you expect new clans to join the ns competitive scene when the europeans main ns league is a complete joke.

look at div 3- were the only clan who has more than 1 player online every day
. I know that there is no real solution to this problem but it still sucks.
Please take extra extra extra time when making season 5 divisions. Maybe have more than 1 opinion on the divisions? cough.

Considering we have "high skilled" players choosing the low skilled divisions, its obvious its going to go wrong.

make season 5 good please... get some real opinions on the divisions. Get someone who actuly knows who reflection is to pick the low skilled divisions maybe...

I think the skill levels were mostly equal in every division, correct me if i am wrong.

The main problem was that clans were dropping out, and some clans folded.

hmm Skyice...you are not the only clan of div 3 who has more than one player online everyday. that is bs and you know it.
The only more or less inactive clan in div 3 atm is Teamfantasy.

Illusion is playing a lot of wars atm. And we are starting to do so again (university mid term exams do ring a bell?)

for cfc, sp, fear and all these other clans who didnt play a single match...well...i wasnt surprised. If you have to wait 1-2 weeks to play a funwar against these clans there is no real chance of them succeeding at the ensl.

For Division 2...some of these clans didnt belong into div 2. especially those who dropped out later should have been div 3. But well...mistakes happen.

Last thing about the finals:
its 1st of the division against second of the division i guess?
Will these matches be around May 28th? or probably sooner?

oh and tmk did a good job...since we didnt have a referee for almost every game we played we always had to pm him to get updates...but he did a good job.

however not having any referees, match reports, etc made the whole division 3 a bit boring. Perhaps you could get some referees for each division next time who are really active. Because what happened this season gives div 2 and 3 players the feeling of playing for nothing. And it shouldnt be that way!

However...i think this season was better than the last one (which really sucked). Hopefully the next one gets better too.

If it was setup like CAL then you wouldnt play knife. Between manual scheduling and a calculated RSI the system avoids low tier clans playing the top tier clans but instead pitches them againist teams in a similiar position within the table.

Xur you are right. ENSL shouldnt be about match reports but about matches. But if everyone simply forgets about the lower skileld clans and only cares about 4 Clans of the ENSL the rest becomes a bit dissapointed. And dissapionted clans loose their interest in playing for a League were noone cares about them. So we get less active clans at the ensl. And then we all start whining about how ns is dying...

THIS is a point you can change! And if not...you killed NS ^^

When/if I come back after exams; I'll start doing predictions for all divisions.

But for the record, I'm pissed off that all the division 3 players are like "tell everyone how I played or I won't play".

I'm sorry, this will sound harsh, but you guys are division 3 players for a reason. I'm not saying you aren't skilled, but I've got no genuine interest in spectating lower division matches.

Also I would *much* rather play a video game than watch other people play a video game then write a dissertation on it...

As for next season, personally I'm in favour of a CAL-style league.

Well here's a newsflash. The people who watch and write about prem div matches are people who are insterested in watching them. If there was anyone interested enough in division 3, then perhaps they would have done the same? Or perhaps you should do it now and stop whine.

div 3's problem is not that no one cares...

it's just no ones starting ns (for a reason..) and so it will allways be boring and inactive at the bottom till we get better :/

i think a different league setup wont change much, maybe it could prevent you from getting totally sick of your div when half the clans dropped out.

also match reports wont get more people into ns..

we have to wait for ns:s ... (take it as a joke if you like)

im trying to explain to the ensl admins (and yes, almost all of them are division 1) that division 3 wants to get referees and match reports too. Is there a specific reason for you to treat us as stupid morons just because we don't invest as much time into this game as "pro" division 1 players do?

I dont want you to watch my matches. And i dont want you to write any reports about them since you are so stucked inside your pro behavior that you wouldnt be able to write anything else but how much this games sucked.

If you show lower skilled clans at least a bit of respect they will almost certainly try harder to play their matches at the ENSL and not to fold. If you show them that you dont care a bit about anything else but you and the 3 other div 1 clans they wont care about their League either.

this is not about watching our games so we feel better. its about supporting new and lower skilled clans and keeping the community alive.

Now please go ahead and write an ironic response about how stupid i am. Its certanly not what i expect from you

Over the last 20 or so posts, Divison 3 players have asked for:

- servers
- reports
- referees
- predictions

To quote Benjie:

"If you want to do something do it yourself. If you want division 3 coverage YOU do it"

As admins we are happy to *administrate* matches. We aren't getting paid, we aren't doing it for kudos, and we certainly don't have dedicated server guys or predictors.

At the same time- if we can help we will. Lump has put a hell of a lot of work into chasing up clans, frG and bob did great work re-coding the website, and a couple of seasons back I did predictions for all of the premiership, and some of the division 2/3/4 matches on my own.

If you check the site history, you'll see that I made a post asking for help from other players to contribute predictions. No-one replied. What more are we supposed to do? Watch you take the piss out of us on the comments system?

I don't understand why you're making the admins look as if they are trying to oppose the players; we all want the same things here- a healthy, competitive league.

For instance, instead of saying:

"If you show lower skilled clans at least a bit of respect they will almost certainly try harder to play their matches at the ENSL and not to fold."

...why not "I believe that [this suggestion] will improve activity, and can be implemented by doing the following..."

Though I am still mystified as to why you think we are disrespecting division 3 players; I simply stated that personally I don't enjoy watching div 3 matches, and as pantsu said- aside from the first week, every divsion has had an equal amount of coverage.

6. you dobule click on the IE, or Mozilla Firefox icon
7. you put www.nsleague.com into adress bar
8. You check when div3 matches are going to be played
9. At that time join the server, than walk under the big green SPECTATOR lettering and watch the match
10. Write the report
11. Post it to ENSL SITE k?

Cup is just too long, and has too many annoying rules. People get bored while waiting for the next round and start plotting to get def wins and stuff, that's about it. Make it shorter, and make it easier to arrange matches.

We need no refs during the match, hltv demo is just enough if there's any trouble, and even that is not needed if everything goes well and both clans accept the results. No forfeit wins. Every match has to be played. If you have to, play 1 map today, and 1 map tomorrow. Give them 2-3 weeks to play all the matches, and have the finals.

Clans can still spam hltv ip's to irc chan in time, if they want to. Predicts can be made too.

Yes, im actually doing something but whining and blaming the system. I'm playing in a div 3 clan and helping to keep it alive.

At least give it a shot, see if people can handle this. ... And dont force the division numbers. If there are no 7 div 1 clans, then make it 6 clan division. Ask for opinions, discuss in forum.

"I believe that giving division 3 players the feeling of belonging to the ensl instead of beeing "just the noobs" will improve activity, and can be implented by searching and finding people who are willing to support these lower skilled clans by writing match reports and predictions for them."

As I have already said- I searched for match reporters and predictors but no-one wants the job.

w.r.t.

"Cup is just too long, and has too many annoying rules. People get bored while waiting for the next round and start plotting to get def wins and stuff, that's about it. Make it shorter, and make it easier to arrange matches."

There's 2 paths to take.

1. Turn into CAL admins. Everything is heavily admined and much more organised, and matches are quicker because we will support you asking for a forfeit win if there is more than a 5-10 min delay between rounds. The downside is that we have to become nazi-esque, and this creates a rift between players and admins.

2. Keep it like it is. Fairly laid back and relaxed- we just want to play some comeptitive NS. The downside is that players have to take responsibility and actually turn up to their matches. It's obvious from the past 2 divisions that EU players don't like to do this.

19 May 2006, 09:38

Noavatar

path 2. easy enough.

the general "if you want more attention to come to div 3 no one is stopping you from doing it" line of thinking doesn't even seem that unreasonable to me.
It seems there are some caring and active div 3 players that want to (help?) improve the league. Don't be shy, go for it by all means!
It's just that simply saying to the admins, we want more attention to div 3, is not helping. They are busy enough and have simply got to prioritize ( as it is with all things in life).
I'm atm considering helping out with possibly doing some (lower div) predictions next seasons as I like to stay involved even though I have no time for actually playing comp ns.

Sherpa is right. When you start heavily administrating, you just get enemies, start flamewars etc. just because you are doing your (unpaid) job. I think keep the relatively relaxed attitude will be the best option.

Cheese. We're not bashing you or dis-respecting you but you have to do the match reports and stuff yourselves. Don't ask others to do a job you will not do.

Qin wrote:

Qin, don't use metaphrases like "too many annoying rules". Say what they are, and say why they suck.

Basically ENSL's have turned out like these because of the ns-scene's inactivity and ns's nature (being a hard-to-learn game etc.) not ensl itself (yeah you would think Im biased but I try not to be).

Personally I think there're some ways to make ENSL better (or less worse) next time.
- Bigger divisions and not everybody plays against each other. This way some dying clans wouldnt kill ensl but the league would be fast enough (about 4 weeks).
- Matches should be allowed to play anytime before the week it should be (lastly) played. So week 3 matches could be played at week 1, 2 or 3. Yes it sounds more like a ladder but the amount of matches would be a constant and in the end there could be finals for each division. This would be make the league more flexible and since we have no predictions, the time when the matches are played is meaningless compared to the issue of matches not being played at all.
- No forfeits. This way clans would be encouraged to come up with an agreeement than a flamewar.
- Matches could be broken into two pieces. So 1 map at saturday and 1 map sunday for example. This would be a nice solution when clan A cant have their best players (assuming its a big deal to them ;p) at saturday but clan B, and sunday it would be vice versa.

And theres one thing EVERYONE could do for the scene. Be nice to newcomers and behave on public. This doesn't mean you should miss bullets or play under your skill but make the public chanllenging. Cap the res, don't camp, build stuff, listen to the comm etc. Don't bash newcomers, ie. when a newbie gorge won't heal you - try to relax and not shout it like OMFG HEAL YOU FUCK, BAN THIS NEWB! I know its hard but try! The poor gorgie just might have installed ns and has absolutely no idea what to do.

The welcome for newcomers matter much, much more than a success of some league.

And something about following public comms. Many, many players think like "This comm is so fucking newb - I KNOW 100x times better - I have no need to follow his orders!" Well its just like democracy in this world. Let's assume some law will get through with 80% - 20% votes. Those who did not support he law (20%) should still follow it because that why they the support DEMOCRACY even if they don't like the particular law. Unless you think people should only follow laws they support (=gg). This means that when you follow your commander's orders you are supporting the idea of generally following Commander's orders even if you don't support HIS orders. This is giving out a good example. And exaggerating with some kind of nazi laws is stupid in this case.

tjosan was right when he said that ns having big skill differences makes better players look rude on public when they are not on purpose, and forcing players to play under their skill is stupid but ns has turned out like this and if something doesn't change, ns.. will continue dying or be in the state like this. But this is not about forcing, this is about telling you that theres an option. You have all the right to fragwhore as much as you want.

Remember, everytime you go to spawncamp on public, you might be exchanging newcomers for your frags. It's your choice. If you choose the spawncamp, don't then wonder why ns is not getting too many new players. Im not saying its your fault, Im saying its your choice.

Noavatar

I agree with being nice to new players, but spawncamping is a(n) (essential) part of ns. I'm always nice to new players, but than again I always talk too much on pubs ;p

Having the players decide the dates they play, along with more matches a week, along no forfeits will lead to disaster. every team will have 10 matches to play on the final sunday, chaos disorder ect. I don't think we can quite handle the planning ourselves. If one match a week is already a problem to schedule, imagine what would happen if you need to play more.

19 May 2006, 13:57

agreed
my clan can play at certain times, theese times are 2 hours apart from a time which other clans may be able to play.

Set play times may suck but could well be the solution!
-less admin waste of time
-less flame wars
-more organised and planned
And if the date/time is anounced at least a week before the match is to be played then clans can make sure they can have there best line up.
However reschedules should be alowed to a certain extent.

"But then again, if your shit enough to let a spawn camp be set up against you then you should be playing on a server with spawn camp protection!! (loller imune plugin for when you spawn)"

If you wanted your friend to play some sports, tennis, badminton, etc. with you - would you just beat the crap out of him with all your abilities to feel the best or maybe give him a chance? "Lol your problem you - just can't!"

Oh but wait, you don't. You just asked him to get owned.

Or imagine pro hockey players going to a youth hobby game and spoiling the whole game. Its just in ns, everyone is mixed up (except in leagues like this).

Or get back to ns. Its like setting Knife (or any good clan for that matter) in div3 and when the whole division has beeen owned, say "lol you fags, stop bitching or die in a hole".

Anything you say won't change the fact that going to the hive for a spawncamp is a conscious choice and it has effects. One of which being newcomers quiting. Most competetive players seem to think its worth the frags. Well its their call.

"Oh yeah and the whole point of a democracy isnt just to follow the law or idea that the majority want. It is about thinking what those over 20% of people want to do and how we can change the law/idea to suit them a little more."
You got me wrong. I wasnt comparing public to democracy, just following commanders orders. It doesn't matter whats the whole idea of democracy. Democracy would not work if pople would have to follow only those laws (orders) they support. Its same thing with commanding. I don't see how anything you said, changes this.

Has anyone got anything usefull to say about set playing times?

"Having the players decide the dates they play, along with more matches a week, along no forfeits will lead to disaster. every team will have 10 matches to play on the final sunday, chaos disorder ect. I don't think we can quite handle the planning ourselves. If one match a week is already a problem to schedule, imagine what would happen if you need to play more." -Xur

one of the problems is that the player base of competetive ns isnt getting larger. this is because new clans just consist of old players under new names.

If Teams would start to have farmteams there would be new competetive players who could later join/create new teams which are better skilled than their farmteam.

There are many Public Players with Skill. And i guess there are enough for a lot of farmteams. You just have to find out who d like to play competetive and give them a shot.

And yes...this IS a thing i/we are doing. But its not enough to have 1 or 2 farmteams. There have to be much more.

I think this is still the best possibility to get new players into the competetive scene and to keep it alive.

My opinion is that there should be some knowledge about lower division clans before arranging them into wrong divisions where they really dont belong.

I know newbies are newbies no one really cares about them they are just newbies but the should be more attention to newbie clans :). There should predictions for other divisions also like div 1 has in the news page. There should be more news about the games like "newbie clan 1 won even when everyone predicted that they would lose.". I think its a big thing to write news about everything but there could be some information from lower division clans. I think it would make lower division clans see that they are "important" to this league and everyone loves 'em.

The referees should be more willing to write match reports. What i really loved last season was that 'u chose the best "lifeforms/players" from each divisions that was great.

I hope 'u guys can understand what im saying :).

oma- of the existing clans, who do you feel is in a league they shouldn't be? It looks balanced to me- I don't see the top team of one league beating the bottom team of a league above them.

As Fana, Ben, myself and others have said: we are tired of you saying "why don't you write reports about our/lower division matches?"

Reports *might* help, but saying "you should write them" doesn't help anyone. It's like me saying "UWE team should fix the website". It's the right thing to do but saying it doesn't accomplish anything; all it does is frustrate those you speak about for not appreciating what has been given.

You played 3-1 against ns.ftw and 2-2 horror, but you beat Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropes every time.

Ignore PCW results, people who take them seriously are just being dumb. PCWs are there to practise for match time, to try new strategies and discover what works best. It's irrelevant that you lose 4-0 for a week whilst ironing out the best strategy for a map if you bring the bacon and win 4-0 on match day.

Ofcourse ppl are happy and proud when winning from a better clan :D , Pete Sampras lost games to when he was Ruler NO.1. You cant ignore the results but you shouldnt take them to serious. I think ENSL just needs time to get better. Like the nr 1 from each devision goes up one devision and the last one goes down.( I have no idea what happens now) Balance comes in time....

25 May 2006, 07:52

Noavatar

Uk sherpa | cisequaltothree

But all of Sampras' games were competitive.

We are saying- imagine Pete playing a warm-up match with his trainer and deciding to play with his left-hand.

scratchie- the original plan was for the top team to get promoted and the bottom team to get demoted but it's simply not practical. For one thing, dead clans messes up the system (e.g. look at the premiership- if Flatline, Coldspell and el'pheer died, we'd be forced to demote knife); and it's mighty harsh if a good new clan is formed and has to start in division 3.

As for balance, I feel things are pretty good.

Personally, I'd love to see one large league. I'll try and talk Mike into it after my exams.

I spent about 2 weeks harrasing clans to find pcw results for the division tables at the begining of the season, you simply can't have a perfect structure unless you have a division of 2 clans thrown in at random.

STOP MOANING!! YOU JUST MAKE OFFICIALS QUIT AND NO1 TAKES THEIR PLACE, THEN, THE LEAGUES DIE.

If you're purposfully trying to finalise the death of the EU competative community, please carry on being whining little shits about anything you can find - just keep blaming everyone else for your own lack of efforts to fix the game, it REALLY helps.

Problem is every on-line community is like this.

example: had a CS:S PCW for a laugh in April, I got glocked through the *tree* by the caverns next to the T spawn on dust2, my comment was "?" and I got "wtf no comments dick" "lol nice one kid" as a response!

It's only a matter of time until each and every one of us cracks and rage quits (of the current admins, I think there's only 2 who have never said they will quit NS). Combine this with a lack of new players = problem.

And with NS becoming stale, it's down to the community to keep competitive players interested... actually screw it, this point has been made millions of times before.

26 May 2006, 16:17

Noavatar

Sa frost

"It's only a matter of time until each and every one of us cracks and rage quits"

Its because the majority are just kids (18 or younger), since the only kids someone will look after is their own, or someone elses for money, its highly unlikely any of the admins will enjoy this.

Although ofcourse many in that age group will be more mature, and less self centered, it is clear from this that the majority are not. That does however fall down to their upbringing more than anything else. Although some will do it to fit in.

Thats why CAL's system works, with strict admins they keep the spotty teens in check.

There are only two problems, as I see it. Lack of respect for the league and its staff, and lack of loyalty to team mates and clans. The first is overcome with strict admins, the 2nd can't be dealt with, but is the one that causes clans to die and drop, they lose a couple and 3 or 4 from the team think they are better than that, and leave.

The problems are not due to NS though, thats todays society. Parents not tough enough, school teachers no longer allowed to take a strap to the bad kids hand, hell even putting the bad kid in the corner isn't allowed now. They wonder why kids are such ass holes now? =/

Example 1: the nursery rhyme "Baa Baa Black Sheep" is not allowed to be sung at English nurserys as it is considered racist.

Example 2: my Junior school banned *running* on the playgrounds and fields. Banning 9 year olds from running?! What?!

Example 3: taxi drivers in England aren't allowed to wear England shirts- whether it's an English football shirt, or a plain t-shirt that has the St. George's cross one. Apparantely it instigates racial hate. Taxi drivers can't affilliate theirselves with the country they are in. What a crock of shit.

P.S. I vote for ENSL to be put on hiatus until 3.2 comes out. IMO it needs a break- having consectutive seasons makes the whole thing stale- even with revamps.

perhaps shorter ensl seasons would keep more clans alive. if they know they only have to hold through for 1 month istead of 2 they could perhaps stand it easier without folding :)

Post Unexpected Changes
Due to some turn of events, Finland cannot play the final on Saturday. UK and Singapore are having troubles with reschedules, but will probably play this weekend (June 3rd or 4th). The GIGA broadcast was scheduled for Saturday night at 10pm and a rearrangement could not happen, GIGA is booked for next weekend, there isn't a chance that the NSWC would be able to be shown. However, despite this the finals will be played on the June 10th/11th weekend.

this is why, kinda blows, so if we still have the time to broadcast maybe a ENSL final would do it!

sherpa wat the fuck do you know about me?

the fact is

I cant see the current NS team bothering to add in Wall Strafeing, Double Jumping, and strafe jumping. Yes they will probably add in alien bunnyhopping as the dev team think its more of an alien abilitiy but all the marine movements will probably be removed and I just cant imagine that. I assure you it will be buggier. The hitboxes will be even worse and if you all whine at aA now just wait till u play him on source.

Yet source brings some benefits - nice physics (ragdolls \o/)
- better graphics ... effects ... ect..
- more mapping functions
- bigger playerbase (most likely)

Sherpa you dont need to know how to code if you know how the game works.

Fana im guessing on that most of the NS community will move from source and source (like the original NS) will gain some players that will stick with it.

Im not talking a drastic playerbase. But im sure it will be slightly larger. Its just a pity that as you say it will come out to late and will get completely owned by the likes of Dystopia, Empires and other mods that by then will have been perfected and probably taken alot of players all ready. (ALSO Nuclear Dawn looks pretty nice)

Then again Aliens and Marines will be a new concept to alot of people so i still think on the whole ns will gain some players.

Mind telling me how you know this? As a PT it's news to me; and you obviously have hard evidence as you describe it as "fact".

Also, the NS:S playerbase will most likely be huge, as I think it'll be supported by Valve, and could well share the same playerbase that Nuclear Dawn will get.

WELL ITS ACUTALLY A FUCKING LIE.

As frG said i did used to code plugins but even so i dont give a care about that as yes its generally neglable to actual hl.

BUT sherpa your saying i said it as fact?

"probably" generally means that its probable. I never said "definately". So your wrong there.

Second of all ALL Source games so far have worse hitboxes then there counterparts. CS:S? Plan Of Attack even has bugged hitboxes.

So from what ive seen yes ns will have worse hitboxes.

Sorry to aA i for know your reg is fine and was just using you as most people usualy whine at your reg.

And about the Playerbase - no one knows wat its gonna be like - there are too many factors supporting either side. But I for one think its gonna be larger. But not incredidably larger.

Sherpa i didnt want an arguement i wanted to display some opinions and points. This is the most pointless debate ive ever had on a comments board.

Ricohet was supported by valve that doesn't mean shit. NS:S will happen but it'll be too late. Production hasn't even started fully yet, by the time it starts and finishes who's going to care about NS:S? The same number of people that cared about NS 3 years ago. And then 3 years later we'll be back here again, it'll just suffer the same fate as NS, a popular game that could of been so much more but missed its prime.

Flayra should just fucking axe NS:S, plan NS2 in detail and wait for the next next-gen engine and just fucking rock it out with that from day 1.

Well:

"the fact is... I assure you (NS:S) will be buggier... The hitboxes will be even worse..."

Sounds factual to me, Zamma.

Ben, comparing NS:S to "Ricohet" is possibly the most retarded thing you've ever said. There's a game inside NS, not too sure about Ricochet. As for the future? Who knows when "too late" would be. A fair amount of people (myself included) are excited by the upcoming Nuclear Dawn, despite the furore of the next-gen game consoles all being released by then.

Will people be using Steam in a year's time? Maybe I should rephrase that: will people be playing C-S/C-S:S in a year's time? (Yes!)
