All players who have not played in any of the Natural Selection League Seasons of NSL/AusNSL can participate.

Current NSL members / veteran players can offer their support as coaches and advisors but they themself cannot play.


PS: We need coaches/Commanders for each team (unless they dont have their own ones.



But the fun starts when you are ready. You can Play Gathers!

We strongly advise that all players who wish to take part start playing some Gathers.

(They usually happen often from 20:00 CET to 4:00 CET)

This will give you a feel for fast-paced competitive 6v6 NS2 before the tournament!

i hope the new newcommer tournament will be better organized than the last one. but i fear the tournament could be lack of players. we should try to advertise the tournament everywhere we can:
steam, uwe forums, discord, ingame-menu.

Blank Mega | pubstars

advertisement will be on the way soon.

Could be nice if SOMEBODY HELP US ON THIS:
and Make some Intro Videos like this:

or a nice picture with the nsl logo and the text newcomer tournament on it.
something like this 5 minute mockup: http://imgur.com/xBQJNGB

with the context in it: "the newcomer tournament is great and happening soon go play in it"

Advertisement platforms planed so far are: Steam Group, NSL Twitter, Uwe Forum, Discord Servers (we dont have access on the ingame menu)

Mega_noComm says
(we dont have access on the ingame menu)

but that is the biggest platform where EVERY player has to see it no matter if he wants or not. not every new player is watchin the forums or discord. we should talk to uwe that they put it in the ingame menu.

and to bait new players we should give a reward and advertise the tournament with a grand prize.
most rookies like badges or skins. something like that would surely raise the numbers of players

Afaik the latest news on the http://unknownworlds.com/ns2/ is always visible in the ns2 main menu. So if PDT could make a news post for it and leave it there for like... well until the tournament starts. I think this could help already
