Equilibrium Cup #3
« on: March 22, 2014, 04:53:54 pm »
We are proud to announce that EQ Cup #3 is coming soon, an international competition pitting the very best teams around the globe against each other. Team Impossibru from Europe were the champions of the inaugural tournament back in 2012 and only a few months ago, Team nv- from Asia clinched a long and hard-fought victory to become the new reigning champions. Will they return to defend their title, or will there be new winners waiting to clinch their glory?

The deadline for signups will be announced as soon as EQ 2.1 is 100% ready, which will be happening very soon. Teams can have a maximum of 6 players and there is no limit to how many teams sign up. The teams that are officially registered and confirmed by the admins, will be listed at the bottom of this opening page.

We will be unveiling a ruleset and map rotation very soon, and as for signups, this discussion thread right here is the place to go to enter your teams: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/eqcup2/discussions/0/540736965908236393/

It's an international competition which is open to teams of any skill level: you can be top tier or new and fresh on the scene, it doesn't matter to us. So get together with your friends, get in shape, have some fun and we'll see you very soon! ;)

Bump for signups thread being officially open to any teams willing to be preemptive; I will list the signed up teams on the first page as they amass. Oh and if there are gonna be multiple teams, you might want to distinguish yourselves by choosing a city/state to play for :)

Due to complications and quite a number of requests made towards the admins, we've decided to be a little more lenient and include the 50% rule: a team's roster may have players who don't live in/originate from the nation of their team, as long as at least 50% of the team's roster lives in/originates from the actual nation they're representing. We've had to do this in response to a fair number of individual players who hail from much smaller nations in the European and Russian communities which don't have enough players to make a team of 4.

So basically, if a USA team has at least 3 players, they could ask a Canadian/Mexican/anybody to be their 4th. It's not totally ideal for a 'Nations Cup' admittedly, but the last nations cup that was ever done had to go through a similar process. It would still be awesome if there was indeed at least one Team Canada throwing themselves in the mix! :)

Despite that, bumping the thread for 12 confirmed teams and word of more teams on the way!

if its 50% of the team members then it makes no difference of any other cup. most of the teams play with 2-3 members from same country though. IMO there should be a limit of 6 players, with minimum 4 from same country.
