I think USA, PL, Egy and Ger have the ability to get a team, but especially Ger has a very small team only.
If Anubis is gone all of June, they might not have a chance to play in June emo

Yeah, we had 3 years break since NT 2013 so people got hyped and did everything in their powers to made it good tournament. Only 1 match forfeited, 8 real countries and much of fun. I hope we will get close to it this time too!

No one says that if the tournament starts mid-June that you can't play all your matches in July. We will do our best, together with the team captains, to make it as nice as possible. The NT has Always had a history of incomplete squads due to school/holidays though.

For me starting in July would also be better, as I'm completely unavailable in June (foreign country at GMT+9 and no access to laptop or computer) and it might be difficult to get backup for Germany. Of course we'll try to get as many players as possible emo

And definitely ask FireSworD for the USA, he occasionally shows interest in competitive play.

P.S. I can technically play for Poland lol, lived there for one year.

If not then they have A7med and CS for example, just to name a few. Last year the tournament started in July and then we also had to deal with people not being able to play, we couldn't even play the final with the strongest lineups.

Like I said before in the other thread, it would be essential to time it well, even if some people are already getting excited to play. Having seen Kyro's and Artegor's statements as well, I'm feeling more certain that the tournament should start around July 1st the earliest.

Besides, we are going to have the final stage of the ladder for the next month or so. It would be good to get most of those games out of the way first, at least.

That's a dangerous thing to say if you want countries to participate, not scare them off.
Serb should be able to get a proper team (for example with Toni), even without Arte in the first round or 2.
For Egypt however, that's not the case because basically 3/4th of their normal team is graduating :p.

Its all about this: A team should have at least 4 players (one for backup)
beside those 4 you can add as many players as you want, just in case, everyone has been doing that for years….
By: KRSplatinum, in: [NT 2018] Sign UpsNational Tournament2018-05-22 08:52
P-F and I have agreed we could play for team USA in NT, however we would need a 3rd player for 3v3, so this is conditional on if we can find 1 more player. If this comes down to "fantasy" teams then I would want to be open for other players from North and South America to join, if there are any interested. I'm not sure how much that would be rule-bending or not, given the general lack of active players from USA and the fact we are only one country - opening the borders to a whole 2 continents is a bit of a stretch for a "national" tournament. But who knows, tourney needs teams, and anything is possible.

By: Vivando, in: [NT 2018] Sign UpsNational Tournament2018-05-21 23:18
Uh, so one can just sign up their country team just by naming whatever players exist out there? Without any verification of them being able to play in practise? That way it would be easier done than said to sign up Team Finland. But knowing the motivation level of most of our players it's hard to gather even 3 players who would be able to play for real.

I'm pretty sure the Dutch roster contains quite a few names who have been inactive for years and who I bet wouldn't show up for a match (and I'm not talking about Shadow). Xd

By: Toni, in: [NT 2018] Sign UpsNational Tournament2018-05-21 21:12
Inspired by the public demand, the 6th edition of the legendary National Tournament safely returns!

The tournament structure will depend on how many teams sign up! One way is groups and knockout stage if there are enough teams, and another is league system with play offs.
The map pool will consist out of a good mix of old classics, less-played maps and newer maps.

Every team will have 1 captain, who will be in charge of the team. This person will also be responsible for scheduling the matches with other captains and officials and will be responsible for their team to show up at the scheduled matches. We will create a Skype group with all captains for announcements and scheduling information.

For a player to be eligible to participate in a country's team, he/she must be known to live in that country currently or have lived there for at least 4 months.

To make things fair, we are going to do the signups with 2 phases. In the first phase, only real countries are accepted as teams. However, a country may have multiple teams sign up. A team should have at least 4 players (one for backup). If there is any dispute about team names, the crew will help settling with them.

In the second phase (if there are still spots left), "fantasy teams" may also be accepted (mixed nationalities), but real country teams are still favoured. To determine whether a fantasy team is "legit" to enter the tournament is up to the crew to decide. The crew will try to stay fair and consistent in it's decisions.

When signing up please add:
-Your team's captain
-Your team's roster

If you cannot agree on one captain, the crew will select one for you and provide you with a motivation for the choice.

The tournament will start in early June.

Real country teams may now sign up until May 31st, 23:59 CEST (GMT +2).

GL HF!

Rules and the mappool will follow when ready.

need to get rid of rule #1; too vague and open,
By: Jelly Jam, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-11 14:04
I don't support the idea of uneven numbers of teams per group.

I mentioned a leauge system before as well and that would be our best bet, especially if the tournament gets fewer teams this time. But if 8 teams sign up like last time, I'd rather stick with the groups and elimination stages, to prevent potential forfeits due to a bigger ammount of matches the teams would have to play.

If a leauge system does get accepted, I'm all for the good old playoffs between the top 4 teams, where the team with a higher ranking has a small advantage of some kind over their opponent.
By: Toni, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-11 01:01
Or even maybe a league system with playoffs or finals where 1st ranked team has some advantage (choosing maps etc)
By: MasterSven, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-05 08:54
No fantasy teams, I prefer 1 group with 3 teams and 1 with 4. Also players always go on vacation throughout the summer. We have often started late-July or early August, this might work but usually the tournament takes too long and then everyone becomes inactive in early/mid- September. Might be an option to start in June and have everyone play their group matches before the 20th of July or sth.
By: Vivando, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-04 21:47
I think we can give it a shot this year. However I believe the timing needs to be optimal this year, when the activity is generally lower. From my experience the best time would be somewhere in late July-early August. This will allow many players who'd otherwise be too busy have a chance to play on a potential summer vacation. Though ofc there will be players who are going on a trip instead, etc.

If I recall correctly, last time we first allowed only real countries join in the first place. And had there been any uneven number of teams in the end, we would have allowed fantasy teams to sign up as a last resort. I think this is the best way to do it this time too.

After all, the last NT (2016) was probably even the most successful one so far, having had no fantasy teams at all and only one forfeit match overall. Thus we can pretty much go with whatever format & rules we had last time.

It will be interesting to see what kind of a mappool we will manage to muster for this edition.
By: MasterSven, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-04 10:32
The format is only decided upon after it is known how many teams will participate. If 6 teams would participate then 2 groups of 3 teams would work perfectly.

By: Krzysiek, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-02 14:52
tbh I doubt we would get 8 teams, even last time RO was sort of a team to get easy points on. Number between 4-6 is the most likely we could get. But that kinda force us to change format. Tho, idm contacting some Polish players and ask they whether they'd be likely to participate.
By: Jelly Jam, in: National tournament?National Tournament2018-05-02 03:28
Hi everybody. I can't be the only one who was thinking about this, but starting this thread seemed like one of the first steps to realizing this idea, so I decided to bite the bullet.

So, should we or should we not try to play a National tournament this year? At the moment, one would say JJ2 doesn't have enough active players for a big tournament like this. However, it's only May. Of course that most of the players, especially us younger ones, have school or university duties or just jobs that are preventing us from even thinking of playing this game. But summer holidays are almost there and chances are that a good number of people will come back.

I feel like I started the topic a month or so in advance, but that should give enough time for people to notice it. It's going to be hard getting 8 teams like last time ( 8 non-fantasy teams *cough*), but I'm already willing to ring a few contacts for my own team, and I can't be the only one here who would do that! I'm sure that we can get enough interest. We have over a month so there's not even a need to rush anyone. We have plenty of time to ask people if they are interested. If everything works out, I'm sure that we will have a great summer of playing JJ2 ahead of us!

So what do you think?
