Just a few things and the kitchen sink...
Please makes sure you read the League Rules. Also remember that the rules don't address every possible permutation of a situation. The spirit of the rule and fair play will always be adhered to as best as possible.
Note: Although, not yet reflected in the rules, this season's schedule was made with teams starting as a particular race in mind. The team listed first in a match will start as marines for both maps. This was a feature desired by a few players.
Casters & Referees
A part of the NSL that doesn't receive much praise is our dozens of volunteers who dedicate time out of their lives to help matches run smoothly for the players involved and broadcast them so the rest of the community can enjoy the games too. Without these people, part of the NSL NS2 experience is lost.
The staff sign up google doc for the season is ready. If you were an active caster or referee from last season, don't worry, an invitation has already been sent. If you're new and haven't received access to the internal forums or the google doc, send me a message with your NSL user name and email address. Thanks for helping out!
NSL servers are up! Another big thanks to UWE for sponsoring 5 servers for us to use this season. Like all the other NSL servers, the password is ns2nsl. If you experience any issues or improper configurations, please message me on Steam or PM through the NSL site and I'll do my best to take care of it. Thanks a lot to Vindaloo and Kaneh for helping out to set them up.
