Nations Dirt Cup 2014: Registration open
As you might have heard, the Nations Dirt Cup tournament has been moved to ESL lately. Here is the first news in which you can find important info about the tournament!
Nations Dirt Cup in ESL from nowIn 2014, the Electronic Sports League and the administration of the legendary NDC staff, agreed on the business, so to save your most favourized dirt tournament, the ESL staff will adopt the organisation!
To have this news without any further unimportant words, lets get to the points.
Team structureEach team must have a minimum of 5 players, and a maximum of 10 players + 2 members that can not play matches(only have an organizational role). A team can max have 10 players who play matches in NDC.
As a non-playing member, you can NEVER play in matches, but you can communicate with NDC Admins and other teams, schedule matches, decide your teams line-up etc. Non-playing members have to be placed into Team Owner or Team Manager positions.
A player who has two nationalities for his first participation in the NDC selects the country which he wants to represent in the national team. This first selection will be valid for all future NDC, in which the player participates.
In the Future never can be changed.
- Example: if a player with dual nationality, German and French, chose at its first participation in the NDC that he will play in the team France, it’s forever and in future never can change it and can’t play in the team Germany.
First selection = forever.
This rule is also valid retroactively for the previous editions of NDC (2012, 2011, 2010…). In case of doubt on the dual nationality, the concerned players will have to prove it by supplying a copy of their paper of identity.
If no proof is supplied, the player can’t participate in the NDC.
Mixed teamsMixed teams are allowed. In this case, you have to open a support ticket in which you can present your plans about a mixed team, listing all the players you happen to know, ready to play for you.
Registration infoImportant: teams who are already in the groupstage (top1-8) should also sign up to check if the team respects all the conditions above.
Team accountsYou need to create a new team for Nations Dirt Cup!
Why: to lock the teams we need separate team accounts for all kind of premiership leagues (.CPS, .SPS, .DPS .NDC etc) so you can avoid locking a parent team of your organisation.
