18:00 CEST Open tournament (starting time may change) .
So Season 12 IS STARTED NOW please schedule all your Matches.
There have been some problems regarding Season 12:
a) vague explanations of match scheduling.
Not giving clear “default dates/times” on all matches was clearly a mistake that will be fixed.
Please try to get 5 Matches played in 6 Weeks.
Thanks to Absurdon we now have a new scheduling system in place, fully explained here.
You can still use the comment section under your match to schedule games but give the scheduling system a try so we can improve it based on your feedback.
b) numerous bugs with the new NS2 build, etc
We would like to have a stable balance in Comp mod in Season 12 with as less balance variety as possible throughout all Matches.
Also the Comp Mod Council is sometimes strongly opinionated towards “Can we just revert”
So the Comp Mod Modders came to the Conclusion that it's easier to use a Freeze mod of build 317 on top of Comp Mod so if a new NS2 Patch gets released all balance changes don’t apply automatically.
c) team disbanded in Division 1 (this means the division had 3 teams in it)
Since we had another Team disbanding but this time in Div1 with only 4 Teams,
we took the chance to reconsider the Seeding with your help and based on the Comments and to not repeat another 4 Team Division we are going for Seeding Possibility 11: http://www.ensl.org/articles/1047
We will reward the first 3 Places in each Division ofc with a Great HOF Spot
Where you will be listed with the Best/Winners of previous seasons and maybe with Badges with a similar look/concept like these.
