I wanted everyone to know this isnt just for clans, this is for any 6 person team. To clarify a little more a clan itself could have more the one team in the tournament as long as each person only plays for one team.

If there are some friends who think they could win and put together a team of 6 they are welcome to sign up.


A 6v6 Natural Selection tournament is announced with cash prizes.

The tournament is being held by Evil Clan, visit www.evilclan-ns.com/tournament for more details.
It is a 30.00$ entry fee per team/clan that enters all are welcome to join. There will be cash prizes for the winners.

    Indeed. I would join, but I have no money D:.
    Q: Is your goal to make everything picked the same amount of times? (from j.walsh)
    A: I don't think about it that way exactly. Sure it's good if there is a nice distribution and that is something to work towards, but really the goal in DotA's development is, first and foremost, to make the gameplay quality the best it can be. It is the combination of all the heroes, items and mechanics together that makes DotA what it is and not the individual elements alone. Sometimes that means certain things are carefully adjusted to be more frequent than others, sometimes it doesn't, but ultimately the main judge of a game's quality is not in some artificial balance metric, but in the overall gameplay quality and depth that it has.

    I love it when people post topics in other sections of the forum even if it doesnt fit. I hear off-topic, suggestions and ideas, and the mapping sections are popular. Post this there as well.

    You get your entry fee back. tounge.gif

    Seriously, I don't know... but at $30 a group it's gotta be pretty big. If 8 clans enter that's $240!!! Not sure how much will go to expenses, but if none did in a 6 person group each person would get $40 out of a $5 investment.

    Just some guestimating there. I'd join the tourny but I don't have a clan. sad.gif

    All payments are made through paypall and paypall does money conversions for you. Check the website out for additional details www.evilclan-ns.com/tournament, but to clear it up yes every team pays a due to enter we take the dues that are paid and split them for the winners (a slight fee is taken from each 30.00 for profit) we already have around 20 teams ready to go.

    This is no bull, we will hold many more like this so if your skeptical than dont join this one wait till you here how it went and how it is legit than join the other ones that we will hold.

    You dont need a clan to join the tournament, just 6 people that are willing to play together as a team for that day.

    Will you be recording Demos of the whole tourny, just important games or none at all?

    I'd really like to see some 2.01d tourny demos.

    Yes we will be recording all matches in case of questions of cheating and exploiting. And you do understand its 30.00 a team not person.

    Its not quite 600$ yet Esuna. I'm estimating they take about 5$ off the entry fee for expenses (That would be reasonable) And They have prizes for 1st and 2nd Place (Maybe 3rd)

    I think I have this right.

    Hmm... So this tournament practically is only for top players, since no-one will pay 5$ just to lose. I hope you will host new tournament for those who wish not to pay much, with something like 1$ / person entry fee.

    [edit] btw how large percent does paypal take from payments ?

    Well we are calling it off, the reason being is because of skeptical peeps, we had about 20 teams ready to go than someone comes in and starts talking people out of it (for what reason i dont know). We thought it would be nice for teams to compete for something worth wild, since there arent any prize tournaments for ns.

    Well maybe we will try it later on down the road when some people grow up (i dont mean all of you there were some supporters).

    To bad it would have been a great thing
