If you regularly come on Discord, you may have discovered a few staff changes as the NSL moves continuously forward. I would like to announce that a new staff roster has been selected and is hereby effective immediately, so welcome to infamous, Jackson, mirez, Mephilles and Grissi to the team. A lot of thanks to Deck for all the work he has done as an admin, he will, without a doubt, continue providing feedback on anything balance related. 4sdfg, phone, Kmacg and Mega will remain with the team carrying out different roles, as members of the Balance-Team and as League Official (helping with seasons, events, casters and referees) respectively. As for myself, I (Pelargir) will be head/executive admin.
Where we previously had only one Admin group category, it has now been divided into two different groups: Contributors (Balance-Team, League Official and Event-Team) and Admins (Executive, League, Communications Admins and Advisor) in order to get suitable and more specific roles for the involved players.
One of the biggest changes is the new Ombudsman position, which will responsible for handling of confidential reports regarding Code of Conduct violations by Admins and other staff members.
If you want to know more about the current vacant and occupied positions, I suggest you to check the above chart and Organizational structure article. This format is new, and as such, it is not yet set in stone and adjustments may occur in the future. We are still looking for more Referees, Casters, Website helpers/coders or anyone else who has abilities deemed valuable, so feel free to contact one of the admins if you are interested!
Are you bored by the chaos of public games? Have you ever wondered how this game plays as part of a 6 man team willing to speak and work together? Ready to try something new?
Bring your friends, or find new ones, and fight in a competitive 6v6 environment against other newcomer-teams to be crowned the best new NS2 team of 2019. All of this will be streamed by our experienced shoutcasters!

- Do I need a complete team?
No, you don’t! Everyone can register. It doesn’t matter if you register only yourself, with a few friends or a complete team. During training sessions we will give you the opportunity to find other players. Also, we have an infrastructure in place in which you can actively search for a team or complement your roster. If you are unable to join a team on your own, we will place you on a team accordingly.
- Who can register?
All players who have not played in any of the NSL seasons on NS2 can participate. If you have played only a partial season, you may still be able to participate. Just contact us (see below). If you played a season really long ago, contact us and we will see what we can do about it.
- Where do I register?
Also please fill out this form if you wish to participate to make it easier for captains to sort out teams!
