Draft Tournament, Season 15, Admin Changes & More!

NSL Updates

[EDIT: a poll was added at the very right of the front page]

Draft Tournament

We wanted to thank everyone who played in the phone my DRAFT tournament this past weekend! The finalists are still deliberating whether they are playing next week so stay tuned for updates!

Jackson casted some of the Draft Tournament games on the NSL Twitch, here’s the full replay if you missed it. You may find some other players’ points of views out there: CommanderKeen, Mega and Starcetereus for instance.

If you enjoyed this tournament, don’t forget we still run Gathers, it’s time to make them roll again! We’re thinking of adding ns2_derelict_fixed (the author currently working on the map also made Summit [pSyk on Discord]) in the Gather map pool; it might be worth a look, maybe it can even become a competitive map with your help. If you have any feedback, you can drop a comment here or anywhere you see fit.

Season 15 Signups Open!

Season 15 signups are now open! The season will officially begin around the 18th of March which leaves you three weeks to get your team ready (if you don’t know how to create a team or join a contest, click here). As for this season format, nothing is set in stone yet, the admin team is still discussing it so feel free to share your feedback on the forums or on Discord. Depending on the amount of teams that sign up, we may either go for a divisional format (i.e. what we had in the past) or an improved ladder format (last season system requires some adjustments). We will post an update here once we know more.

Recent CompMod Changes

Thanks to 4sdfg, CompMod now displays two panels in the Ready Room. One panel redirects to the current CompMod change log, and the other panel links to the ENSL homepage in order to make it easier for players to keep up with the latest news. To all server-ops, please make sure you add this mod (ID:33c898b2) to your servers, this mod enables the panels to be displayed. As always, your help is very appreciated!

Organizational Changes

The NSL team is growing and some changes in our organization should be emphasized. We’ll make it short though.

  • paddy and Pelargir join the team, respectively as Gather Admin and Executive Admin.
  • 4sdfg becomes CompMod/Modding Admin,
  • Phone remains CompMod/NA Admin
  • Deck becomes Social Media Admin.

We’re still looking for an EU Admin and we’re also lacking Referees and Casters for our upcoming events - you can apply by filling this form (you can also contact us directly) and read the following practical guide. NSL staff members get a shiny badge on competitive servers and casters get the ability, if they want it, to stream games on twitch.tv/nsltv.

One Last Thing

Some interesting stuff came out of the UWE last Q&A (watch the replay here), including new lifeforms concepts!
