New Year, New Admin, New Comp Mod

What's going on with the NSL?

As Division 3 wraps up their finals, and Division 2 and 1 begin theirs, you may find yourself asking: "What's next?". If you find yourself wondering about the future of the NSL, then you have come to the right place. But first things first...

 

New Admin

Please welcome Knox as the new Gather Admin. As Gather Admin, Knox promises to make gathers a less toxic environment for new players, and is actively seeking to recruit new gatherers/future champions from pubs. But he can't do this alone, he will need the help of dedicated gather mods and especially non-staff in the community to accomplish this goal. Myself and the rest of the admin team thanks mst3kld for his service as previous Gather Admin.

 

New Competitive Mod

As mentioned previously, we are trying to make gathers more inviting to newer players, fresh from the public servers, that are willing to prove their mettle in a higher skill environment. But to help accomplish this goal we needed to address the elephant in the room that is how different comp mod finds itself from the current state of NS2. Comp mod beta is up on select servers, with the goal of being much more vanilla friendly and less of a barrier to entry for interested new players. Gathers and scrims are more than welcome to try out beta mod, but official matches will still be played in regular comp mod, obviously. Useful feedback on beta mod is welcome. And remember...

CHANGELOG: https://github.com/Steelcap/NSL-CompMod/blob/beta/README.md (everything not listed is build 321 vanilla)

 

After the season ends...

...we will of course have next season to look forward to. Offseason events will also occur, and of course gathers, so don't worry there will always be the chance to prove how much better you are than everyone else.
