Season 11 Playoffs + Draft Tournament

Season 11 Group Phase

 

 

Thanks to all the Teams/Players/Referees/Casters/everyone that participated in the many great and enjoyable games.

 

The Div1 group phase week 1 match contained ns2_mesh for every team, and every team was expected to play it. The matchpage from CanMercForFinals vs seize & decyst, which has over 60 comments, never mention that the teams nor any of the players did not want to play Mesh, much less that they would refuse to play.

 

CanMercForFinals vs seize & decyst played on June 3rd, 2017 at 20 CEST, after the admins accommodated the teams’ request to extend the season for their match. During the match, at least 8 players kicked the referee from the server in order to play a map they were not supposed to play. This is considered to be disrespectful behaviour towards the official that is using his free time to serve the League. 

 

Upon further reflection by the admin team,  both teams will not be disqualified from the season. The players who initiated the voting process to remove the referee will not be allowed to play in the semi-final match. There will be no points awarded for the first Mineral map (which should have been Mesh), and 2 points awarded to CanMercForFinals given that they won both rounds on Veil.

 

Season 11 Playoffs

 

Both finalists receive a Hall of Fame entry and the winners of the whole playoffs will receive a badge

 

The Div 1 playoffs will be:

 

 

 

In Div2:

 

 

 

 

Spawns for this Season 11 Playoffs

 

1) ns2_tram (Alien Warehouse spawn, both rounds)

2) ns2_summit (Randomize First Round, NO Alien North. Then repeat same positions)

3) ns2_descent (Randomize between south and north spawn then repeat same positions)

4) All other maps (Randomize First Round. Then repeat same Alien/Marine positions)

 

 

 

Organization Structure Changes

 

Welcome our new admin, Ololoi.

Knox is going to be the Head Admin.

Knox will help structure the admin team, such that we can take into account the many perspectives for the administration of ENSL. We welcome your continued engagement and perspectives concerning the league and the community. In particular, we would like to increase transparency and are open for suggestions as to how that can be achieved. You are welcome to help with administration because the NSL is, as always, supported by the Community, for the Community.

 

 

 

Draft Tournament + (Custom Maps?)

We would like to hold a Draft Tournament on the 17th of June 2017 at 18 CEST.

This works like a Gather. You vote for Captains and they pick from a player pool to assemble teams of 6-8 players.

All matches will be played in 1 evening, best of 1-2 rounds (maybe more rounds/maps depending on how many players there will be).

 

Come to the TS3 Channel Draft Tournament on our ensl.org TS3 Server on the 17th of June at 18 CEST and get assambled into Teams and then play.

Btw, according to your rules, map pool is set for regular season only . Doesn't say anything about playoffs.

Get rid of Mesh please. We shouldn't have to waste a veto on it.

it's weird because last season finals mesh wasn't in the map pool and it was still allowed to be played in the finals

that's so weird, it's almost like ensl picks and chooses which rules to follow

Thats because people asked for it beforehand, rather than doing it minutes before the match started.


Frankly I think this is a great injustice and not fair for the other teams who followed the rules. NO points should have been awarded at all, and more than just the instigators should be punished.

"Frankly I think this is a great injustice"

I agree. Can we finally talk about the #KashillesIncident #PrayForENSL?
we already established that there was no intention to neither disrespect the ref nor the league. Why would punishment be necessary then? For deciding to forfeit a map and continue scrimming instead?

Please state valid reasons for your actions. Otherwise we assume it's just Kashilles trying to get cheap revenge for people disliking his map.. .

Even though you meant no disrespect towards ololoi you still kicked him. It could not be seen as a scrim since this time and date was booked for an official match. If mineral would have been played after veil and after anouncing that you forfeit mesh then we would have no problems at all.

WHY DOES THAT EVEN MATTER? WE FORFEITED MESH THEN WE PLAYED VEIL

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE????????????????????

idk why ensl is intenitonally fucking this up, my team doesn't have a lot of time to play these remaining matches. and you're all making scheduling a fUCKING NIGHTMARE because you're randomly selecting people to ban from my team WHEN WE COULDNT GET FUCKING 6 the WHOLE SEASON AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

the window for playing a match right nwo is rather fucking slim, and if you want ANY OF THESE FUCKING PLAYERS TO PLAY AGAIN NEXT SEASON OR CONTRIBUTE FURTHER TO THE ENSL you'll just fuckign stop being petty mongoloids and just LET PEOPLE PLAY THEIR GAMES So we can get this INSANELY DRAMATIC LEAGUE OVER with

The rules don't seem to specify how or where teams should say they are forfeiting a specific map. With there being no official method (but it being allowed) that leaves it up to the players to figure out a way themselves to inform the official(s), yeah?

By not Playing mesh we Made it pretty clear that we forfeit it, no words necessary.The ref was kicked after he kept changing the map to mesh and after he announced the only Option to not have him continuously do that is to kick him.

Isn't it also disrespectful to force 2 teams in a highlight match to play an unfinished, unfit map for COMPETITIVE play that is to boot disliked by the community as a whole?

As admins of the COMPETITIVE league, you can't make players play kodiak or derelict or refinery.
Do admins of said league not recognise which maps are fit for a COMPETITIVE environment?

Imagine making us play kodiak. It would be deemed an insult to the caster, who is wasting time casting a match on an unbalanced map, the 12 players that have to endure 2 rounds of pain on it, the viewers who came for COMPETITIVE matches, where there is strategy involved ect...

Speaking only for myself here but that's how I would have felt if I had to play mesh.
I'd have felt insulted and questioned the intentions of the admin team.

Peace.

It's unbelievable... After i thought people understood what they did, and after the last 130 comments newspost I thought it's over. But I was wrong. I can't belive that you still shit around here and can't accept your punishment. You are just insulting the adminteam, fucking arround with them, and make them responsible for the league breaking apart. It's actually you destroying everybody pleasure to contibute to the league. You would actually deserve to be disqualified.

I don't wanna see people in the league, which act like you do.

yea cuz playing pub maps like mesh in a competitive league is so enjoyable. tbh, save it for a summer custom maps tournament or some shit, not regular + postseason.

I suppose that includes people like me, who stream all their matches for others to see and learn from, who casts matches, creates video tutorials, helped run the league as admin for 2-3 seasons.

I dont think anybody wants people in the league who just come here for the drama and literally never play ns2 or do anything for the league and literally just post their dumb fucking opinion nobody wants to know in the first place but they just cant resist to keep posting because they streamed one match in a single season.
