Stadium Nations Challenge 2015
Country Championship is back with a new brand! In 2015, ESL releases CC in a new form globally, which will be known as Nations Challenge!

Season 2015

Last year we made the first CC in TM2 Stadium and it turned out pretty well. Now, with the new Competition Title Pack, it is time to step up a level and show the power of your nation!

You can browse the history of the previous editions here:
Season 2010 - Season 2013 - Season 2014

To avoid the clash of tournament naming (see Nations Cup), we will refer to ESL's Nations Challenge as SNC (Stadium Nations Challenge).

What will change this time?

We will make great changes to the Rulebook which will be decisive for future championship rulebooks here. some rules are removed, and also we say bye to the ranking point reduction! Instead we will use other regulations this time, in case of breaking the rules.

    Of course DPS will give the maps here, but when this news was written for first time Jack didn't tell me anything about a DPS :P

    Rasque can you please be a little bit more comunicative?
    I still hope you take new fullspeed maps & not the A.Core ones :)
