    It's going to be hard job to approve nominations since August 2014. There's plenty of nominated players now.

    Nominating @wooza for his obvious contribution of building the fastest server, maintaining it out of his pocket alone.

    @matso to be upgraded to gold level for his overwhelming continued contribution to performance.

    @ATF for delivering the data that allowed the server performance work and testing in a live environment.

    This.

    @Matso is a legend of epic proportions and deserves shiny gold status, and @Wooza and @ATF run five servers including two of the most popular, without complaint, and as HellwireD noted all from Wooza's own pockets.

    @Mouse for his map(s) and being a general absolute legend through NS1 to now.

    And I know it's not specific, but anyone that creates and finishes an NS2 map -- if not for new maps, the variety would be gone and we'd have an even smaller community than we do now. Anyone who completes a map is a hero in my eyes. You keep NS2 going.

    I just want to nominate a few people that truly deserve to earn Squad 5 before the 'long awaited' next round happens.

    @Vindaloo, Swalk nominated him already but along everything that he's done and keeps doing by helping the NSL or even the players themselves by reffing and / or casting games should earn Squad 5 Blue or Silver. He's been here for a while now and never get rewarded somehow for all this. He's also a super nice person and has been in charge of the onFire team during lots of seasons. He's one of the guys who helped and took care of plenty of players, introducing them to competitive. Whenever you need a caster, through the NSL, other Tournaments such as TAW's tourney or even the one organized by GISP, you can be sure that Vindaloo will be somewhere around, ready to cast. I think it's finally time to get rewarded for all that.

    @Tudy, he's been wonderful at handling the Newcomers tournament. This tourney has been successful and allowed many players to get introduced to the NS2 competitive which brought a few teams to register for Season 6 of the NSL. He's now joined the NSL as admin and already thought about organizing another tourney and he's going to so between each regular seasons. He's also one of the NSL casters, along with Hefty and his job through TAW is worthy. Managing so many players isn't easy task. He's a really nice guy too and you guys should have a talk with him to find out how is he. His passion for NS2 is catching.

    I reckon that there's plenty of players that need to be upgraded to a higher rank for everything they did. Nevertheless, giving the Blue S5 for those that have been nominated remains more important.

    I would like to nominate @MasterG for building mineral which is in my opinion the best custom map out there at the moment.
    I also want to nominate @MauvaisVitrier for being like the second developer of mineral and contributing awesome feedback to multiple maps (say what you want but most feedback I get from him is the most valuable)

    I'd like to nominate @SupaFred for hosting the Thirsty Onos servers, that are a huge part of the NS2 community and show good behaviour towards newcomers (ingame tips and other kinds of messages) and his constant support of custom maps in the map rotation.

    +1 for @MasterG for having the patience and talent to build a map appreciated by most of the competitive community and pub players

    I would like to nominate @bawNg for writing a much better client for the old build system I put together and the one I wrote on the back of napkin at a coffee shop, and then supporting his client, and making it better than mine hands down.

    Seriously, High five on that.

    +1 nomination for @MauvaisVitrier, being the most badass giver of feedback for Mineral and countless other maps. Without his continued support, Mineral would not be where it is today.

    Also great the @BeigeAlert got this, because his model material swapper software has been invaluable the last few weeks of Mineral's production.

    Thanks everyone for the nominations!
    Keep em coming, and again double check the profile link you provide not only works for that user, but that they don't already have what you are nominating them for!
    Also, providing every single reason why said user deserves it just helps their chances, since not all of us are familiar with every user we cannot vouch for them - only you can!


    Also, do not hold me to this, but more than likely we will have a patch that will go out a few weeks after the next one filled with goodies.. so there will be another round of Squad 5 then, albeit smaller than this last one thank god :)
    So you have a couple of weeks to get nominations in for the next round.

    I might be completely biased about the following nominations but whatever. Those indeed deserve to get rewarded one way or another.

    @Tudy once more because since the last nomination he's begun to labor even more for the community through TAW and the NSL. For instance, I can mention the last Season 6 and draft tournament. And to come: Skulks with Shotguns. He also looks after the NSL front page through his newsposts. To sum up, he's been pretty involved the past months and I can't see him not being rewarded for all the stuff he's done so far and the constant boost he keeps providing inside the NSL (even amongst the admins). I can honestly say the NSL wouldn't have got this far without him.

    @Feathermonster - has been of a very nice help this last year. She's allowed the NSL to survive through our communication tools such as Twitter and our Steam group. In addition, she helped a couple of major stuff in regard to the NSL website and has been quite efficient when it came to take care of our NSL casters. I do not forget everything else she's part of beside the NSL such as PT and leading a few times MT when sir Zavaro is MIA.

    @UniqueOne - how couldn't I miss this guy? Unique has joined the NSL many months ago as referee and became later on, part of the admins team. He has a weird sense of humor I gotta say, probably due to him being Finnish or whatsoever but well, at the end, tons of matches would have been lacking a referee without his intervention. He also looks after the official NSL Teamspeak 3 and so far so good. He did manage quite well. Tens of players use it everyday and without a proper place to gather, many teams wouldn't have gotten the possibility to play their matches in a nice way. Most of the events are held on this TS and so are the NSL gathers. Finally, he's been part of the Combat PTs for what it's worth unfortunately.

    @Sephy - has helped the NSL going to seeding teams to providing simple but helpful advices. But what can be even more noted is his ability to develop the NSL gathers. Where gathers a few months ago started to get forsaken and no one wanted to play it anymore. Sephy appeared and decided to take over - modifying a couple of things there and some other here. It's become quite a routine now and gathers are played almost every night. It's a real success and gathers wouldn't have been that enjoyable for those players without Sephy. What's more, he's a referee and his help as all our staff members has been crucial for the maintaining of the NSL.

    And one more...

    @Supafred - There's so many things to say though. He provides plenty of servers. Probably the most famous in Europe and with good reasons. It's been lately the only way to get a nice experience on public. What you can notice on his servers is a lot of advices for new players, advertising for the NSL and other events or supporting the CDT in its work. Remove the Thirsty Onos and Supa from NS2 and the game would become quite sad I bet. He leads an NSL team called GIEF ROBOT and you know what? They even won Div 3 Season 6. One thing leads to another. He recruited Prommah in his team and just this, is a challenge. A challenge that requires a reward.

    Good luck to all the nominated!
