To follow up on the recent rumors
of an upcoming EQL season, the EQL crew has issued a statement regarding the 7th edition of the European QuakeWorld League.
Hello fellow Quakers!
Here is a list of changes and some explanations that comes with EQL Season 7 - Summer!
Admins: Bps, Itsinen, Nas, Pleuraxeraphim, Trashie, Zalon.
The first and biggest change is that EQL7 is actually now both a 2on2 and 4on4 league.
These leagues work parallel playerwise, which means that only players from the 4on4 team can play the 2on2 games... and ANY player from the team can play the 2on2s, so it's not restricted to 2 players only anymore (like most leagues has been)! There might be some conflicts within the teams of who should play, but there should be enough players at least. The divisions and opponents will also be the same in the 2on2 as in the 4on4 league.
A new thing for this season is also that ALL division has tb5.
This is because we respect kenya tourneys at summer time and since cmt3 and cmt4 has been around for a long time, so at least the majority of players do know these maps. 4on4: (e1m2, dm2, dm3, cmt3, cmt4) - 2on2: (dm2, dm4, dm6, ztn3, aero)
Playerlimit and additions
There is a playerlimit of 8 players per clan this season.
This is because we actually want all players to play. A lot of clans have something like 8-12 players in their roster, and there are actually some quite active players that aren't fielded due to the roster changes during the years, which has made some players stay in the clan without playing any matches. In our opinion these guys should try to find a new clan and make the scene more active! This restriction does not apply for division 1 since there never seems to be enough players. There has also been a small change in the player addition due to max players 8/clan. You can now have 8 players in the roster and "change" an inactive player to an active. This costs you 1 addition. So choose wisely your player before signing up.
This season will not be a long one.
We are trying to keep it down to 5 weeks and a couple of days (notice season starts on a Saturday so that we can play on Sunday the 10th). The playoff schedule will be announced later during the season. The main reason we want to keep it short is that most players have normal jobs and will probably have their summer vacation during late midsummer, and we want to have the games played before that. Saturday the 10th of May is the official start of EQL7 Summer. The end of regular season will be Sunday, June 15th (actually it's 03:00 June 16th). Due to only being a 5 week season, we hope the signed up teams to be able to play MORE than 1 4on4 game/week.
We have introduced a new point system!
The system will work like this: mapwin = 1 point, that will give a max of 2 points from mapwins. And in addition to that, 1 activity point. So the maximum amount of points you can achieve from a game is 3! Notice: You will NOT be extra rewarded for 2-0 map wins.
- Our new spectator rule for players in the same clan helps us to get cams for games. Read more about it in the rules section when it will be up.
- We will have lots of interviews and small awards every week!
- There will also be weekly news for what has happened in the league.
