Organizational Changes

Organizational Chart:

Big changes are coming to how we structure the administration of the NSL. I’d like to take this opportunity to explain how the system and roles will work.

Head Admin:

  1. Direct supervisor to the NA/EU Admins.
  2. Settles differences in perspective that may arise between the NA/EU Admins.
  3. Works closely with website management to improve the NSL experience for its users.

Website Management:

  1. Providers of the ensl.org website.
  2. Supports implementation of requested improvements.

 NA/EU Admins:

  1. Direct supervisors of department admins  per the chart above.
  2. NA and EU admin share equal authority over all relevant departments.
  3. Settles disputes that arise between department admins and the community. If the NA/EU Admins are unable to agree on a resolution, the Head Admin will make a ruling. Moreover, if the NA/EU Admins agree on a resolution, the Head Admin will not be involved.
  4. Works closely with other admins to guide the direction of the NSL.
  5. If in agreement with each other, they have the authority to overturn admin decisions.

 Comp. Mod. Admin:

  1. Responsible for organizing and supervising a staff of contributors on the comp. mod. council.
  2. Responsible for working with the comp. mod. creator to execute the changes.
  3. Oversees the discussions regarding comp. mod. changes.
  4. Presents the ideas being discussed by the council to the community, and manages the subsequent feedback to be considered in council discussions.
  5. All changes proposed by the comp. mod council must be approved by the NA/EU Admin. If the NA/EU Admins are unable to agree on a resolution, the Head Admin will make a ruling. Similarly, if the NA/EU Admins agree on a resolution, the Head Admin will not be involved.

 Communications Admin:

  1. Responsible for organizing and supervising a staff of moderators for each NSL communication outlet.
  2. Responsible for structuring the channels/threads on the NSL communication outlets, such as the website forums, Discord, and TeamSpeak.
  3. Responsible for developing and enforcing a set of rules and guidelines pertaining to the communication outlets.

 Gather Admin:

  1. Responsible for organizing and supervising a staff of moderators for the Gather page.
  2. Responsible for developing and enforcing a set of rules and guidelines pertaining to Gathers.

 League Admin:

  1. Responsible for organizing and supervising a staff of NSL referees and casters.
  2. Responsible for organizing seasonal play and contests in their entirety.
  3. Responsible for developing and enforcing a set of rules and guidelines pertaining to League play.

 What the community can expect:

  1. Each admin will be held accountable to their responsibilities.
  2. Disputes are to be handled by the corresponding admins, and the decisions of those admins can be appealed to the NA/EU Admins. For example, the Gather Admin is expected to resolve disputes within the gather system. The resulting decision can be appealed to the NA/EU Admins. If the NA/EU Admins are in agreement, the dispute will be settled by them. If the NA/EU Admins disagree, the Head Admin will make a ruling.
  3. All final decisions can be considered endorsed by the Head Admin.

 

As Head Admin, it is a privilege to be in this role and I would like to thank the community for being so active and passionate about the game we love to play. I welcome all feedback and criticism and will answer any questions about the organizational structure.

Season 11 Playoffs + Draft Tournament

Season 11 Group Phase

 

 

Thanks to all the Teams/Players/Referees/Casters/everyone that participated in the many great and enjoyable games.

 

The Div1 group phase week 1 match contained ns2_mesh for every team, and every team was expected to play it. The matchpage from CanMercForFinals vs seize & decyst, which has over 60 comments, never mention that the teams nor any of the players did not want to play Mesh, much less that they would refuse to play.

 

CanMercForFinals vs seize & decyst played on June 3rd, 2017 at 20 CEST, after the admins accommodated the teams’ request to extend the season for their match. During the match, at least 8 players kicked the referee from the server in order to play a map they were not supposed to play. This is considered to be disrespectful behaviour towards the official that is using his free time to serve the League. 

 

Upon further reflection by the admin team,  both teams will not be disqualified from the season. The players who initiated the voting process to remove the referee will not be allowed to play in the semi-final match. There will be no points awarded for the first Mineral map (which should have been Mesh), and 2 points awarded to CanMercForFinals given that they won both rounds on Veil.

 

Season 11 Playoffs

 

Both finalists receive a Hall of Fame entry and the winners of the whole playoffs will receive a badge

 

The Div 1 playoffs will be:

 

 

 

In Div2:

 

 

 

 

Spawns for this Season 11 Playoffs

 

1) ns2_tram (Alien Warehouse spawn, both rounds)

2) ns2_summit (Randomize First Round, NO Alien North. Then repeat same positions)

3) ns2_descent (Randomize between south and north spawn then repeat same positions)

4) All other maps (Randomize First Round. Then repeat same Alien/Marine positions)

 

 

 

Organization Structure Changes

 

Welcome our new admin, Ololoi.

Knox is going to be the Head Admin.

Knox will help structure the admin team, such that we can take into account the many perspectives for the administration of ENSL. We welcome your continued engagement and perspectives concerning the league and the community. In particular, we would like to increase transparency and are open for suggestions as to how that can be achieved. You are welcome to help with administration because the NSL is, as always, supported by the Community, for the Community.

 

 

 

Draft Tournament + (Custom Maps?)

We would like to hold a Draft Tournament on the 17th of June 2017 at 18 CEST.

This works like a Gather. You vote for Captains and they pick from a player pool to assemble teams of 6-8 players.

All matches will be played in 1 evening, best of 1-2 rounds (maybe more rounds/maps depending on how many players there will be).

 

Come to the TS3 Channel Draft Tournament on our ensl.org TS3 Server on the 17th of June at 18 CEST and get assambled into Teams and then play.
