As a reminder: ESL Wire is a REQUIRED anti-cheat for you to install to play in the ESL cups. This will automatically ban people who are using hacks (such as aim and wall hacks). To install this, please click here (http://play.eslgaming.com/anti-cheat).

Also, don't forget about the Nosgoth Global TDM ladder here: http://play.eslgaming.com/nosgoth/global/nosgoth/open/nosgoth-open-4on4-tdm-ladder/

Good luck and have fun,

What about the double elimination bracket? There were polls on the ESL forums with overwhelming votes towards YES but then there was no double elim?

The double elemination tourney wish is noticed and we keep it in mind. The poll itself is not the trigger to do so.

Eventhough I came down at the Pro-DE side of the debate before, I have to say it took quite long yesterday.
I can see now what the initial debate was hung up on:
YES - it is only 1 game more for the final.. but is it?
The upper bracket needs to wait for what is essentially the game for 3rd place, which they don't have to in SE Tourneys.
Also, with the Wire hickups and, god forbid, a match ending in a tie, the entire torunament will be dragged out for another 30min at a time.

I think it was a nice experiment, but for the future, if we have a RO32 Bracket, we should just stick to SE.
That's my two cents anway...

Liked Double elimination, but nosgoth and esl-wire seems to had a lot of issues with prolong tournament. We waited for one certain match more then a hour(in this time 1-2 other matches could been done) and this was, because of game and esl-wire issues. If one match is delayed on secondary bracket, everything then will be delayed. So solution is to assure that esl-wire finally will work properly next time. Then avoid delay by a lot.
