North American Napoleonic Wars League [Season 9]
« on: April 15, 2019, 07:59:48 am »

Welcome to Season 9 of the North American Napoleonic Wars League!
 
We're back again to engage the North American community in competition that is fun and exciting.
We will once again see regiments battle each other to prove their worth and display their skill to the community.




Credit & Attribution

The North American Napoleonic Wars League would not have made it this far if it were not for the efforts of the people who ran it before us. We must properly credit these people. Tico, Jackie Chan and Zzehth first began the intitiative to reinvigorate the competitive side of the North American community with Season 1. The latter two carried that enthusiasm through to the end of Season 4, with help from Karth in Season 4. Cheeseypants took over Season 5, with Windflower seeing it to completion. Season 6 was headed up by SintraBean in a time of uncertainty, initially with the help of Nathan. Season 7 was planned and directed by Amit; and AsianP took the task of Season 8, with Risk and RussianFury taking over early in the season. Throughout all seasons of NANWL, there were numerous moderators and referees that freely offered their time to help with the monumental task of running this event. It must not go unstated how much work those individuals put in. Without them, the seasons would have stalled.
     
To make this event meaningful, we cannot forget the achievements of past winners either, and the participation of numerous regiments. Without their support and attendance, this event would not have thrived for 8 seasons.

Tournament Ruleset

The current ruleset is once again being revised this year to make all the rules fair, consistent and leave the rules objective for the referees to enforce properly. A few rules have been changed by the moderation staff listed below.

GUID Registration and Steam ID registration is being implemented this year. It is the responsibility of the regiment leaders to send their rosters with their player's GUIDs and Steam IDs via the google form provided. The purpose of the google form is to make it easier to submit rosters with the correct information.

It is the responsibility of the regiment leaders to inform their members of the rules. The Season 9 revised ruleset is now open for discussion:

 



Staff Requirements

Moderators may have some management duties and referees will be required to perform some administrative duties, as well.
 
The head admin and board of moderators will discuss and vote on issues that are both deemed important by ourselves and brought to us by the community. You can be sure that from our end, we will do everything we can to accommodate your concerns. The job of referees remains largely the same as before, but some refs may be asked to take on more responsibility if the need arises.

 
Staff Expectations
 
Moderator:  Responsible for discussing and voting on all important NANWL matters. Some mods will assist the head admin with managing rosters and sign-ups. May also referee if necessary.
Referee:     Responsible for administrating matches on the official NANWL servers, verifying rosters during match prep time and recording scores on the thread and TeamSpeak after battles.

 
Staff Selection
Selection of moderators and referees will be based upon three factors:
  • Good, non-toxic attitude.
  • Experience and availability.
  • Record of service in the previous season is valued, but not required.

Registration & Application Templates
 
Regiment sign-ups closed on May 4th. Referee Sign-ups are open.
 
Season Start Date: May 11th, 2019

All regiments must provide a roster of the members, with their GUIDs and Steam IDs, that they intend to play in the event. Make sure that the list that you submit to us is up to date at the start of the season. It may be easiest to submit your entire roster to avoid conflicts popping up later. Players joining the roster while the season is in progress may be subject to match restrictions depending on their status prior to joining.
 
No more "last minute" adding players to your roster before an official match.
If you wish to add new players to your roster it must been done at least 1 hour before the start of the match.
