NS2 ATI Tournament

With the generous sponsorship of ATI, we are proud to announce the first Official International Natural Selection Tournament! ATI has generously donated thousands of dollars in prizes, in the form of six new ATI 9800 Pros, one for each member of the best clan. We asked ATI if they were interested in sponsoring an NS tournament, and a couple weeks later, these six cards showed up, with an extra for our own use. One thing’s for sure, we’re going to make sure NS always runs great on ATI hardware.

The tournament will start right after the release of NS2. To assure that all teams have a fair chance, we are opening up the Veteran program to any and all active clans interested in participating in the tournament. Yes, you read that correctly. Any and every active NS clan interested in participating in the tournament will be given Veteran status and allowed to playtest the beta builds, regardless of your location or experience. All that matters is that your clan is active, which means you play at least four scrims a week on NS beta servers. Inactive or disruptive clans will lose access.

With plenty of bug-fixes, maps, and new features, it’s a fresh new game, and the most balanced and varied NS yet. With hundreds of Constellation Members already giving their valuable input on the public side of the game, we need plenty of active clans to scrim regularly and help us balance the clan aspect of the game.

No application will be refused. Your team will be judged on only one factor: activity. Teams that prove themselves to be inactive will be removed from the program immediately.

Tournament Details and Format
The tournament will kick off with the public release of NS2. Prizes include the Radeon 9800s, custom icons, and other unannounced goodies.

Don’t worry about the competition, either. Clans will be separated into two divisions based on skill, with prizes available in every division. Separate tournaments will also be held in America, Europe, and Australia (no clans will be refused on location). The winners from each country will go on to face each other in a round-robin finals series that will blow you away. The finals will be internationally broadcast on HLTV.

Sign-up Instructions
To sign up, send an email with the following information to [email protected]
Clan Name and tag
Country
A list of six to ten players for your roster, including:

Handle
Forum Name
SteamID

Registration is now open, and clans can expect to start playing soon after their registration is received and approved. Registration won’t close until the tournament starts, but for the best edge, your clan will want to start practicing as soon as possible. Unless otherwise specified, all CAL rules, regulations and practices are in full effect. More information on exact tournament details will be coming soon.

If you have any questions or comments, or would like to donate HLTV servers for the final matches, send e-mail to: [email protected], or contact HAMBONE on Gamesnet (#findnsscrim), Quakenet (#ns.search), or EnterTheGame (#ausns).

We hope you’re excited as we are, so prepare those battle plans, print out those map overviews, check your headsets, and most importantly, get those applications in! Good luck!

    I want my 9800 pro though. I was promised!
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.

    So for real, what the hell happened here? His last comment was from 2004 - now all of the sudden he posts this ancient thing? Did he send this post in 2004 and for some reason the signal was delayed in outer-space for 11 years??

    Maybe he is trying to point out he still hasn't received his 9800 pro...
