A Message from our friends at the Natural Selection League:

Are you bored by the chaos of public games?
Have you ever wondered how this game plays in a 6 man team willing to speak and work together? Ready to try something new?

Join the Newcomer Tournament!

Bring your friends, or find new ones, and fight in a competitive 6v6 environment against other newcomer-teams to be crowned the best new NS2 team of 2019. All of this will be streamed by our experienced shoutcasters!

When is the Newcomer Tournament?

The tournament will be played on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2.

But the fun starts when you are ready!
We strongly advise that all players who wish to take part start attending training and scrimming sessions hosted by experienced NS2 players, such as NSL Gathers (an ensl.org account is required). This will give you the feel and the buzz of fast-paced competitive 6v6 NS2 before the tournament! The training sessions will be on Tuesday May 28th at 19:00 CEST and 7:00PM EDT respectively. But you can also join the NSL discord, there is a dedicated channel (#newcomers-chat) that will allow you to get in touch with our competitive players, some of them may be interested in helping you.

Saturday (Group Stage):
Start: 19 CEST / 1 PM EDT
At most 3 matches, with 4 rounds each
All games, if not finished earlier, will end at 00:00 CEST / 6:00 PM EDT

Sunday (Finals):
Start: 19 CEST / 1 PM EDT
Half-Finals and Finals, played in a best of 5 format

Depending on registrations these times might change.

⦿ Do I need a complete team?
No, you don’t! Everyone can register. It doesn’t matter if you register only yourself, with a few friends or a complete team.
During training sessions we will give you the opportunity to find other players. Also, we have an infrastructure in place in which you can actively search for a team or complement your roster.
If you are unable to join a team on your own, we will place you on a team accordingly.

⦿ Who can register?
All players who have not played in any of the NSL seasons can participate.
If you have played only a partial season, you may still be able to participate. Just contact us (see below).

⦿ Where do I register?
Registration is run by the ensl.org homepage. This video explains the process. It is also the page where you can find teams, players, and your results. See our Help Document for more information!

Also please fill out this form if you wish to participate to make it easier for captains to sort out teams!
