After some quiet weeks we are back again with some bigger announcements! Tonight we want to give you all the details that you need if you want to qualify for the next EMS season! The new season will be played by 8 teams, and you have 3 chances to be one of them. All neccessary information below!

You will always see the Map for each match on the match page. Remember the Winner Bracket Final and Loser Bracket Final are Best of 3.

The next EMS Season in Trackmania Nations Forever will be played by 8 teams. The best 2 two teams from the last season will get a direct spot.

The remaining 6 spots will be given to the top 2 of each Qualification Cup!

You should only participate at the Qualification Cups, if you really want to play in the ESL X TMNF. If you qualify and retire from this position, you will not be allowed to play Competition Amateur Premiership anymore! This rule is valid of course for the team and all players in this team. Moreover the players aren't able to change the team, after they have qualified with one team in the EMS.

Therefore we please every team to check its lineup before the Cups start, and to kick every member who won't play the EMS X TMNF with you. You should also consider that the member limit in the EMS will be restricted to 10 players (+ 1 manager if needed).

    it isnt restricted to 10 :x

    but if u have more than 10 players in your lineup, you will have to kick some of them incase you qualify. the guys who were kicked arent allowed to play for another ems team then, and also cant play the cap.
    haha Easter Sunday and in the evening.. not bad :D i believe 20:00 or sth would have fitted a way better
    Ok ty joey.
