||//Reposting Claire's news from EDL site. :)
It's that time of year, and I'm happy to announce the start of the 14th annual Quake II European Duel League!
Signups are and will remain open for 3 weeks, until 23:59 on September 27. Please remember to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we have your current email address when you sign up. Failure to make sure we have your email address will result in you not being seeded into a group.
There is a map vote , please comment with your votes for the remaining maps in the pool. The map vote will close one week before signups close (23:59 on September 20) to give you a chance to decide if you want to play with the chosen maps.
So far, we plan on keeping the same format of divisions for the league. Depending on the number of signups group phase could last from the start of October until mid December and then playoffs in the beginning of the year Until March. Obviously this is highly dependent on how fast players play their games.
Remember the official time zone of EDL is Central European Time (GMT+1). Make sure you set your time zone on your Q2Scene profile to CET so times are shown correctly and you dont miss scheduled matched.
As always please read and understand the rules. You will be expected to play your matches according to the rules and breaking them (whether you knew it or not) will result in warnings.
Please idle in our IRC channel #edl on irc.quakenet.org, it really makes scheduling matches and finding people much easier. KVIrc is a great free IRC client.
Anyone who wants to play is welcome to join, no matter what nationality, location or skill level you are. As long as you agree to follow the rules and play your matches on time.
As always, good luck and most importantly have fun!
