NSL Season 9 CANCELED

Public discord to hang out and stuff: https://discord.gg/011ECnBa6HoPAYNIX

 

Season Canceled.

With what remains of the Admin team and the current state of the game, we have decided to cancel the remainder of Season 9. With even more shakeups in how NS2 will be played around the corner we have determined that it would be unrealistic to expect the competitive community to embrace the changes. We will NOT be setting a date for when a new season might start. For that to realistically happen we would first need some stability in gameplay and the expectation that we could make it through a season without disruptions to the mods we currently rely on. We’ve been working to get some key Comp mechanics integrated into Vanilla but truthfully we are far from not having to rely on it for the gameplay balances that this community needs. Also, if you read Dragon's comments on the UWE forums, even if reliable individuals stepped up, it just isn't logistical to continue balancing or un-doing the changes being brought into the game week after week.

 

The Future of League Play?

Furthermore, much of the remaining Admin team has lost the motivation needed to continue running the NSL effectively (as I’m sure you’ve figured). We’re not quite calling it quits, but something dramatic would need to occur to breathe life into this league. Yaluzan does not plan to continue his position as Head Admin due to his university studies, and we don’t have anyone motivated to fill in those shoes and fan the fires. Neither Simba, Sephy, nor I plan to have a role within the future of the NSL Admin team, but if new blood came in and were motivated, we would help transition the leadership. We’ve always said that if people want to keep playing this game competitively, the NSL would be that place. Perhaps the best that we can offer these days is a place where people can play Pugs/Gathers, but for now the future of the league is unclear. In the meantime, if you think you can step in and reignite the NSL, speak now or forever hold your peace.

new ctf map is aids. for a movement based game, I can't believe they would release something so poorly designed. far too many edges for your model to clip on. couldn't even finish the round before quitting and just going to a jump map.

Sure, I'll take over your dead league for this dead game for you. I plan to make it a 10v10 league since UWE will never balance the game for 6v6.

Don't give cabooble power: he can't handle it, it goes straight to his ridiculously handsome head.

edit: Totally serious as well.

@Tinki don't take my comments about the competitive community wrong bud, I have nothing but respect for the admins and everyone involved that made the last 9 seasons happen, I have some very fond memories and am incredibly grateful for their time and work... I just don't believe that what remained of the "community" was worth it, nothing but BM and toxicity. I'm glad to see the backs of many of the players, but it is still a sad day to see the end of the NSL for me.

I'm rather determined not to let this game die. Maybe the pro league has to for the moment, but its probably still worth trying to rally the community into pugs and scrims. Especially the newbies or those that haven't tried it before.

For me at least I think the strengths of this game shine at least a little brighter in a 6v6 competitive game.

21 May 2016, 06:45

Blank medi0crates | something funny

Yeah maybe once UWE is done fucking up the game we can get a new modder to make a new balance mod so we can play 6v6 again. But will the community remain intact enough to have a league again? For another gather to ever be played? Maybe, maybe not. We'll see how invested people get into Overwatch.
