The upcoming nightcup, which is our 23rd version will be like our lasts, so we thought never change a running system. But what we decided to change is the design of our Day of Defeat: Source site on ESL. This has directly nothing to do with the upcoming nightcups, but you will see, that everything will be more simple as you are used to know it. Old system, new style. Have fun with it!

In addition to this weve got a new system for seeding the teams. Each team got and gets points for finishing a cup within the first four places, so that we have a ranking, that everyone can see. The first four teams of the ranking, that signed up for the recent cup will be seeded, so that the best matches will not be played in the first matches.

Because you have played catania enough this week, we will grant you a holiday from this map. In addition to this nightcup, we adapted the rules, to enable you an easier cup procedure. At the bottom of this news you can read those rule changes.

In a lot of European countries its really cold outside and there is snow laying on the ground. And where do all those Europeans want to be? Youre right: in the south of Europe where its around 15°C - 20°C. Almost the half of all poll participants have chosen Catania as their favourite DoD:S Map and because of that, here it comes, our first one-map Nightcup that only takes place in the warm of the Italian south. If Catania suits you and you have the will to be a longer time there than your opponents, you have the chance to have a holiday for about two hours there on next tuesday.

It's still winter, but thats no reason to put on ice. Stay active, keep moving, wake up your mates from the hibernation and sign up your team for Nightcup #12. Have a look for the poll at end of the news to contribute to the next Nightcup. Because of the fact, that some teams that signed up and didn't appear to their match, we'll proceed from now on as follows: <center><i>Every team, that signed up for a cup and doesn't appear for their first match, will be barred from the following cup.</i></center>

The Autumn League is over, we have a new year, and we want that you have a nice start in this year by playing more cups. So we decided to carry our european Nightcups on. You have the possibility to play every second week and, if there are many sign-ups, even every week. Some of you may ask what nightcups will be played and we think that it is the best way, if every second nightcup is a 6on6 cup with standard maps and the other nightcups are decided by you, so you are asked which mode you want to play (1on1,2on2,3on3,6on6).
Day of Defeat: Source | 15:29

The winter is coming, the temperature is falling down and down, and our autumn league group stage is finished. The best teams of every group qualified for the playoffs, which are starting with the upcoming Monday, the 3rd December 2012. The specialty for the playoffs this year is, that the default match date is set to Monday. This is because of the overlap with the German League, which is normally played on Sunday. The consequence is, that the Match week for every game is set to Monday till Sunday, and it is your duty to play in this week, otherwise the match will be decided by coin flip.
