What is the Newcomer Tournament 2017 and what can I/we win ?
The ENSL.org Newcomer Tournament is an opportunity for all the players (rookie or veteran That didn’t play in a ENSL Season yet) to test their skill in a competitive environment balanced for 6vs6.
You can find a rundown of the differences between the normal and competitive balance (Comp Mod) at http://www.ensl.org/articles/998

Every participant receives as special treat a in-game badge. The teams that make it to the finals will receive either a first or second place badge. Everybody else that shows up and plays a match will get a participation badge. The badges may look similar to this:

    Hey Mega, I was wondering if previous participants in the NCT could also participate in this one. The requirement of not having played in an official NSL season makes me think this would be possible. I think it would result in many more players while giving previous competitors the incentive to try to place higher and update their NCT badge. Regardless, I'll notify the TGNS community in order to round up players. :)

    I think you can join again as long as you didnt play a season. And I think they've also made some exceptions for ppl who basically still very new to the competitive ns2-scene

    I mean technically your allowed to play but the Idea of the Cup is also to get everyone integrated into the ensl community so they take part on other tournaments Seasons etc.

    Maybe consider Finding/Creating a Team for Season 12 that's Starting the 8th of October.

    Or for the Nightcup thats going to happen on 1 Day inb4 Saturday.
