19:00 CEST [NSL] Newcomer Tournament Group Stage http://forms.gle/9S1yAUyctmzjfRB99
Due to the current circumstances surrounding the amount of active NSL teams, we are likely to change our plans for the upcoming months. We may not run a “regular” season (it is currently on hold) and shift toward a different kind of organization to maintain some activity within the NSL. But to do so, we need your opinion or any feedback you can provide us.
Since the organization of frequent events requires a lot of time and our manpower being limited, any help to run these tournaments will be greatly appreciated. Contact the admins through PMs or Discord if you want to get involved.
What kind of events would you like to see?
We’ve come up with some proposals but of course you’re free to suggest your own ideas. Everything will be taken in consideration and hopefully, we will be able to organize exciting tournaments or anything else that you see fit.
We believe that for now, the NSL should handle short tournaments such as phone last draft tournament which occur during only one night, one weekend or one or two weeks. What do you think? Should the NSL go for shorter tournaments?
Some tournaments, especially in the next weeks, will not require you to be part of an existing team, quite the contrary. You will be able to sign up individually. Some future events may, however, involve NSL teams but only depending on how things go.
Here are some examples:
- Draft Tournaments (you sign up and get placed on a team);
- Night cups (less organized, you show up and get placed on a team);
- Newcomer Tournaments (for players who never played in a season or very long ago);
- Oneshot map cups (a different and unusual map played just once);
- Skulks with shotguns (a 5 v. 5 tournament);
- King of the hill (a team can challenge the “king” team every week);
- ProgMod Tournaments (with or without your own team).
Therefore, the next season will not start at the initial time we mentioned in our previous post and may be (temporarily or permanently?) delayed if that’s what the community wants. However, Season 15 signups will remain open in the meantime (if you don’t know how to create a team or join a contest, click here). If we get enough teams to sign up, Season 15 will be a thing.
