As you can see by the opening post, we're changing the EQ Nations World Cup into EQ Cup #3 due to a few reasons:

1. As best as we tried to give everyone a fair chance to play, there isn't really a reliable ruleset which can excuse a couple of teams that have attempted to sign up. A handful of teams that have already been confirmed did adhere to the 50% rule we included, but that in itself has drawn many complaints and way too much bitching. People who have been caught cheating in the recent past; I could understand objections in that department. But this is bitching about people who don't reside in populous nations with at least 3 other compatriots to team up with, meaning it's impossible for them to play for their own nations. At the end of the day, the cup is open to anyone of any nationality or skill level.

2. The last nations cup hosted by pwg wasn't even 100% a strict 'nations cup' but now it seems that the community just doesn't have the same options as it did 18 months ago. A few teams that were around then, contained players who are no longer active anymore which makes organising national teams a lot more difficult for smaller and/or less populous nations. This also is related to the first problem mentioned above.

3. People arguing based on random assumptions that teams can be formed because they have inactive players who don't play the game anymore and that every player wants to play in the same tournament: obviously no tournament admin can force teams/players to enter a cup against their will, nor can they force/expect players who are no longer interested in the game to come back and play just because you magically wish for it to happen, so why the hell do people even bother arguing this? It's laughable.
 
4. Because I'm fed up of people adding/messaging me just to moan and bitch about something out of ignorance, especially those who have never hosted or helped admin a cup once and have no real understanding of how the process goes. Show enough ungratefulness to those who actually make the effort to create something and it won't be a surprise to see something happening like with what happened with the Russian community, something that Visor can explain better than me.

So it's now a cup for standard teams of 6 players each, with no limits based on nationalities. As much as we wanted to see a world nations cup, it's just not as feasible as it seems and is far too much hassle to even attempt. It's not that there can't be a world cup, it's just that if you want to see it '100%' it means that the admin has to be the harsh bastard who straight-up tells people they can or cannot enter an international cup based on which corner of the globe they're from, which would be absurd.

So what does this mean? What has changed and what remains the same?

1. There are no longer limits based on nationality; meaning that teams now have the liberty of fielding whoever they like, but the max limit of players per team remains at 6.

2. You may edit your rosters if you want to, but of course having a complete national team is also fine too and does not have to be changed. You can still represent your country if you wish to, it's just that for the sake of giving everyone an equal chance in this tournament, we've simply changed it in name.

3. No need to add me just to ask who can play for your team based on where they come from!  :D

4. It also means that I won't accept any more random invites for more bitching! This change was made to make it fair for everyone who wishes to compete and eliminate the issues caused. There doesn't need to be further discussions about it and even if there were, it's not going to change this outcome either. So enough is enough.


I apologise for any inconveniences this may cause to anyone, but this really is the best solution overall.

That's unfortunate :/ Was really hoping to see a full International Tournament.  But I guess on the flip-side, if this allows for a crap ton more of teams to sign up, then that's a + ^^

Don't listen to Fyr. NV is most likely going to be joining this tournament.

I think we all know we can't trust anything Dec says when it comes to quitting the game. I mean, remember when nv lost to nikeOn's team in CCT2 and dec removed everyone saying he was done with the game and he came back 2 weeks later? I'm glad he came back though.
