What is ENSL.org ?
The Natural Selection League (NSL) is an organization that provides a platform for all Natural Selection 2 players for organized and competitive play. The vision of the NSL is to gather Natural Selection 2 players for international organized play. At its very core, we would simply like games to be played, in the hopes that this fosters tangible and meaningful relationships among its participants. We realize that its participants span the range of commitment, skill, and time zones and will do everything possible to cater to everyone’s needs and create the most enjoyable experience.
How are the teams arranged ?
We will create team lists internally with these criteria:
- Nation/Continent (for low ping)
- Wants to play together with….
- Skill and if you will/can command
We will post a list of the teams here: http://www.ensl.org/forums/31
If people have complaints please voice them in the given forum thread and we will try to adjust the list accordingly.
