Custom Map Cup
As you may have noticed already, a Custom Maps Cup will take place on Saturday, 25th of July and will end on the following weekend, Sunday, 2nd of August. Gather up your team and prepare to fight in an incredible and thrilling event. Multiple maps will be at your disposal for this very specific tournament. We've picked them due to their creators still working on them so any feedback and opinions you have will be valuable. Here are the maps you will play on: Caged, Fracture, Docking2 and Prison. If you know of a map that you feel should be played, feel free to say so.
Also note that depending on the next official NS2 update, we might add Derelict into the map pool. All these maps will be played to serve one goal: you will test them in a 6 vs. 6 environment and you'll be the ones who will decide if those maps should be added to the regular Seasonal maps rotation. Although we appreciate and take into consideration anyone's thoughts, teams and players who have registered for the Custom Maps Cup will be responsible for the decision of whether or not to make a map official. One last point: we will are going to handle Derelict like a custom map, when it comes to adding it into Season 7 or not.
Yaluzan is in charge of this event and the one you'll have to contact about the Custom Maps Cup. You can also have a look at the thread he has made already on the forums to get more information about what's going on (especially the scheduling of matches).
Finally, go and sign up your team. This cup will be very exciting!
NSLTV is back again!
The resurrection of http://twitch.tv/nsltv for the SwS tournament went well! Our plan is to broadcast anything official (ladder, season, tournaments) directly from there. If you want to do such a cast, contact Pelargir, Tudy, or Prommah for a stream key.
Further we would like to see NSLTV live as often as possible. Henceforth we would love to host your streams on NSLTV, whenever you are streaming something related to NS2. Be it a random cast or recording of a match you found, a first person gather-session, a live-stream of your map-building or just messing around in SwS with some friends. As long as it is NS2 we will be very happy to host it. Contact the previously mentioned admins for this as well.
On top of that, if you tell us in advance, we put your stream into our calendar. Some might have noticed that extra tab "NSLTV" under "Match Schedule" yesterday. This is where you will see the upcoming streams on NSLTV and if it is live right now.
This thread explains and sums up everything about NSLTV.
