I think to give ns2 a good position in competitive play and extend in that way the live time of the game itself the game should have some tool to support the metagame of ns2.
I know its somehow stolen from mmorpgs and ingameguildtools, but i think what in this games works why shouldn´t it in a fps.
Ingame Squadecreation and management tool:
* Add Player (Steamid or similar) to squads
* start clan/group/squadfights on other clan/group/squads as skirmish or friendly game
* do the same as ranked game for
* global ingameladder
additional it would be great to have:
* orgatool to start and organize tournaments
** when start the matches
** how many clan/group/squads can participate
** notifications on player when their match start ect.
* export this stuff on a html site for public viewing
* spectator browser
