A week ago, we announced potential changes that would go into the second iteration of the balance mod. This is just a quick reminder that we're still sifting through the feedback and welcome more. For those interested in playing a test version of the mod, a beta release was created for testing and debugging. This version has the final values and changes we'd like to implement. You can install this on your server to try out the changes while the kinks are worked out and before it goes live. You can find it here:
We'll be tentatively pushing out this second update after the end of next weekend, on Sunday night or Monday. Matches up to that point should be played with the live version of the Comp Mod - ModID e5ffa15.
ODDS & ENDS
The Week 3 match deadline is quickly approaching. The last day to play those matches is Tuesday, April 15th. The Week 4 match deadline is Tuesday, April 22nd.
The season is almost halfway done for Division 2 through 4 and a few have asked how the playoffs will work. Nothing new for this season. We'll take a week break after Week 7. Then the top 4 teams in each grouping will move on to the playoffs brackets for 3 weeks of playoffs consisting of a quarterfinals, semifinals, and final. Tentatively, the weekends of May 17th, 24th, and 31st.
A few teams have been unresponsive in their match pages. Please remember to make comments for scheduling. Also, if your team has planned to disband this season, please notify me so we can get those matches out of the way and help other teams plan the rest of their season.
Lastly, I'd like to remind every person again that if you participate in the NSL in any capacity, as an admin, a referee, a caster, or a player to READ THE RULES. I cannot emphasize how important it is to have a full understanding of the rules and how to conduct ourselves and matches. It makes for a smoother and more fun league.
