Canyon Country Championship 2014
Now the ECP1 has come to a close, we want to announce a tournament where the teams are countries. You will have to wait a bit longer, because we will take a short break after the ECP. First we are looking for teamcaptains who can take it on to lead their country to the victory!

Country Championship

A Country Championship can be seen as a form of Premiership like we had with the ECP1. Only in this case it's not teams against eachother, but countries against eachother. This means that players from (probably completely) different teams come together to play with their fellow countrymen to become the best country on Canyon!

To give everyone some space "championship-wise", we think it would be best to have a break between ECP1 and CCC'14. Therefore we've planned this event for Spring/Summer 2014 (expected start: end of March, or something close to that). Of course, we won't leave you without any cups during that time, more information about the Winter Cup Series here.

Requirements and Conditions

There are some special rules and conditions, as well as restrictions, for you as a team in order to be accepted as an official national team and to be able to participate in the Country Championship.

Conditions are the following ones:

Name» Country .TM2C
Teamsize» 6 to 20 players
Team Conditions» All players must live in the country they're playing for*
» Not more than 50% from a single ESL team**

* If a player can prove their nationality, (s)he can play from outside of his/her country
** Also valid for the past 6 Months of clan history (even outside ESL). Exceptions can be made for smaller countries


Admin staff reserves the right to accept or to reject a team, if the team does not follow the conditions mentioned above.

"Duo-countries"

We wouldn't want to exclude anyone from this championship, but this is of course a possibility when you play for a country where there are not much players. First we want to try to get everyone playing for their own country, because that's what this championship is about! When this in the end isn't possible, we might consider allowing very limited amount of duo-countries. The allowing of these teams is always on the judgement of the tournament head admin!

We are waiting for Team Captains

As for every Country Championship here in ESL, a person from each participating nation should take the responsibility and be the captain of his/her national team.

    Ghehe, not really a likely duo though, is it? ^^

    Anyway, wormi: I'm not familiar with the Finnish TM scene, but aren't there more "pro-er" players overthere?
    Well there are, in team UMF for sure. However, UMF has stopped playing TM almost full, only 1-2 of them have been online during the past months. DFF as some active players for sure, but no one is driving canyon and we barely have got enough trained people to drive matches ^^

    So, there are a lot skilled drivers who could drive any environment well, but only klovni and some stadium drivers are active.

    Ah okay, well as mentioned in the news duocountries might be possible.
    We'll have to see what comes up in the applications.
    gogo Austria! Haha

    I think my country would be a good candidate for a Duo-Team,
    we'll see. Just in case a Country would need one more player contact me :P

    You sure there aren't more players in Austria who want to play in this competition?
    maybe Asserich? isn't he Austrian?
    yes, they live next each other, almost ;D

    also Austrian are Luffy, Smety and Doctor I think, but all of them inactive since some time. Otherwise Austria could have been a very strong nation. But maybe you find some players in dore2cuo, I don't know where they all come from.

    The best is to look ingame at "Online play", then "Rankings", and then click to your nation and look who you find. I hope many nations will get teams, you have enough time to organise!
    ;)
    Checking the Members page of the dore2cuo site, it doesn't seem that they have any Austrian Canyon players: http://dore2cuo.de/index/members/list

    Just to have this clear: we're not just going to allow some duocountries. There must be a clear view that it's not possible to partitipate as own country and even then we're not going to put together two random countries.

    Would be great if you could get a team of Canadians together! :)
    The minimum amount of teammembers is six, that should be doable, right?
    Uhm... Go Sweden? :P
    If Canada doesn't have enough, perhaps you can duocountry with USA? That might make sense. But I'm pretty sure Canada could get 6.
