NSL wants you!

For the upcoming season 11 we have a lot of new and old teams participating.

Even though this is really nice it also produces an urgent problem:

 

We need more casters and referees to cover as many matches as possible.

(You can be Caster and Referee but you can only do 1 thing during a Match)

 

Therefore we are currently in need of more staff (casters and Referees).

 

As a Caster your see the Match with no delay ( But Stream with delay )

You can Cast/Cocast with your best bud.

You can Promote your own channel or use the NSLTV channel. (you might even be able to host your channel afterwards for a short time)

As a Referee your the LAW for a Match your limited by the Rules but you can also see the Matches with no delay.

A big Thanks from most People doing this job will be sure.

 

If you are interested read the following requirements and fill out the application:

https://goo.gl/forms/Fp8vnCDelFYrqhDn2

 

 

Requirements for Casters:

  1. Have a free accessible stream (no azubu or idk) where you stream with 3 minute delay

  2. Be as unbiased as possible on casting, respect all players, no ghosting, no politics or other non game related stuff. Also don't use the casting as advertisment area for you personal agenda.

  3. Try to cover as many different games as possible. (Don't cast 1 game with 3 casters and the other game not at all) Also cast as often as you can. Inactive casters are going to be removed from the list as fast as possible.

 

Requirements for Referees:

  1. Always stay professional and calm when acting in an official manner

  2. The NSL is composed of many different nationalities, therefore you need to be able to speak and write understandable english

  3. Know the rules! you don’t need to know them down to the finest detail but you will need to backup your decisions by referring to the rules (this implies you are able to find a specific rule when referring to it)

  4. Be able to make independent decisions in a timely and fair manner. (you are justice for your match.) (but that also means when making a mistake be able to admit and acknowledge it)

  5. Stay unbiased at any given point in time when acting in your role as a referee

  6. Be able to record gameplay in a reasonable high quality and upload as VOD later

  7. Act as a referee as often as you can. inactive referees are going to be removed from the list as fast as possible

The signups will close on the 14th of March.

If a team doesn't have at least 6 players on their roster by the 17th of March at 23:00 CET, the team will be removed from Season 11.

If a player is on more than one team signed up for this season, that player must remove themselves from their other S11 teams or the admins will remove that player from all of their lowest seeded S11 teams.

 

The seedings will be released on the 17-18th of March in a forum post.

Season 11 will start on the 22nd of March and is expected to take 2 to 3 months with around 1 match per week to schedule through the match pages.

 

The winners of the playoffs for each division will get a badge similar to this:

(this is an example, the final badge may look different)
