Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Check-In work and what is it good for?

On Saturday there will be a Check-In starting at 14:00 EDT until 14:50 EDT to confirm your participation. This helps us having mostly teams in the tournament who are able to start playing the cup at 15:00 EDT so the tournament can run smoothly. NOTE: If you won't use the Check-In in the given time frame, you can't participate in the cup!

How each team will get a key?

Every team that will be signed up and create a SUPPORT TICKET with the title "CSGO Keys" will receive 5 or 6 keys depending on the number of players in a team. Maximum keys that each player will receive is 6. Please request the tickets only if you need them so teams that don't have the keys will be able to participate in this cup!

What about Servers?

Each team will need to have a Counter Strike Global Offensive Server for this tournament.

Why NESL Premium is the prize in this tournament?

The answer is simple! We are planning on doing much more with Counter Strike Global Offensive in the very near future, and this prize might come in handy in just few weeks! Winners of the NESL Premium will gain a free entry into any upcoming tournaments with prizes or the CS:GO season in the near future.

ESL Plugin

The CS:S players already know it, but of course we want to introduce it again. Next to the well-known functions, like automatically loading new serverconfigs or SSH-protection, another function got added:
esl_cashback: If a player dropped from a server, his current balance will be saved and if he come back it will be restored.

Functions of the ESL Plugin

All information of the normal rcon status will be shown, but aditionally the version of the ESL Plugin and loaded Serverplugin.
rcon eslplugin_version

ESL Server Plugin Download

There is no obligation

As the Plugin is new, there is no obligation yet. The providers have to admit the plugin in the protected-modus, thats why we will obligate it after a short testing phase. If a server has the ESL Plugin, this server has to be used for the entire match. We will inform you when we have more information.

**ONLY TEAMS FROM North and South America are able to participate!**

Sign up until Saturday, 2PM EST
Date: Saturday, 18th of August
Please Read.....
that still doesn't specify which saturday you speak of. it could either mean saturday the 11th or saturday the 18th
I want to play, but don't know how to get a CSGO Server. Do we really need to have one?
At the moment, we are unable to supply servers. Google around as I know a lot of server companies give servers.
Have any of the teams been provided keys yet? Our support ticket is still pending.
No They should be given the keys be the end of the weekend, or maybe even today depending on the amount of teams signing up properly.
