Country Championship Cancelled
Today we have some unfortunate news regarding Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 country championship. Due to recent problems with game and teams' activity, we need to cancel it. Too many teams have already quit, which makes it pointless to continue running it with just a few active teams.
We understand some of you will not understand this decision right now, but ESL simply cannot run this championship anymore as interest from teams has been more than disappointing. Multiple teams starting with Switzerland. MW3, Norway.MW3, Poland .MW3, Italy, Israel, Belgium, Portugal COD:MW3 and Austria as well as favorite teams The Netherlands and TEAM SWEDEN MW3 have quit for different reasons.

Some have quit because promod-plugin wasn't working, some because they didn't agree with the rules and most of them just because they decided not to play the game anymore. Regardless of the reason for quitting, we now don't have enough proper and active teams to continue with this championship and therefore we have decided to cancel it.

We understand this is partly admins' fault because we haven't always dealt with protests immediately and didn't put as much effort in it as we had to, however we were pretty mild on scheduling matches this time but apparently that wasn't good enough for some teams either.

We would like to apologize to all teams that have been fair, haven't complained about a thing without proper reason and played all their matches on time - especially team Germany.

All open protest and matches will be closed and deleted shortly, so if you see some of yours are still open do not worry, they will be dealt with.



Your admin team!

gg mw3 the best game ever!
-_-
RIP MW3
really? :D
Reasonable decision, it has to be respected. So many players hate the current mw3 promod plugin for many reasons that's why they quit. But for versus is still going strong lol a nice way to have fun + vs is competitive coz every1 wants to win hard :D
die shitgame
I Am so Disapponted so fail for the teams that quit
lick some Germans...sry teamchat
hehehehe destro badboy ;-)

Its absolutly not fair for the teams who played normal.

There is no national status if a team was disqualified or when the entire tournament was cancelled. Since the CC was removed because of inactivity of the nationalteams the national status was deleted, too.

Yeah I said that is unfair for the teams who played usually.

So I can say it was wasted time if we dont have any advantage of the cup.
And one was to have a special title.
admins killed the game too !

Yep, lets punish all the leaving teams... what do you want? 12 PPs? Unlimited barrage? Delete the player profiles?
And what is the connection between VERSUS and the tournament above?

Hmm, representing your own country is a waste of time? Interesting PoV. ;)

Well, you might have a point for the national status but still we have global rules and even if your team was the one of the teams who didnt cause that much problems compared to many others we dont "award" anyone with a nationalteam status for playing 3 matches without a visible final ranking / grid / matches and so on. And btw... what is the advantage of a nationalteam-status?

We gave a statement in the news:

And yes, we are for some parts guilty but so is zxz0O0 for creating the plugin ( I doubt we would have a CC without the plugin), Nukem for creating the server - plugin (too bad he didnt updated as fast as some ppl wanted... he MUST hurt eSport, right?) or the Activision employees... but you know who is playing? Not a single person I named... its still the community and if you guys blame us for captains/players who gave a shit about teamconstellation-rules, no-shows, protests and playing a fuckin match without aiming for a defwin its looks to me like a way to find a easy scapegoat...

Hmm, sorry but I dont work at the Activion HQ to know their schedule for patches and changes for the PC platform. And if I recall correctly the BO - CC (which was running 200% better and had a community which was way smaller, with only 2 team who were forced to leave the tournament by an admindecision) was announced kinda late. Its not the case that you wake up early in the morning, decide that you do a CC and within 1 week you got all the stuff you need... just fyi.

You had enough teams for playoff.
If 2 favorite teams canceled, u must cancel CC2012?

Is it other team's fault ?

We played for nothing ?

Its unfair decision.

It looks like,
If Brazil cancel from World Cup,than we must cancel championship.

Please next time,
If u start a work,complete ur work please.

Yep, we had enough teams for the playoffs ;) Group A had 3 teams left when we decided to cancel the CC and all other groups had 2 teams left which means everyone had a guaranteed slot for the playoffs regardless of the result of their match (2 teams, 1 match, guaranteed slot - thats well deserved, isnt it? :D ). Thats not even close to the standard for a Country Championship. And I wont call it unfair decision... its more like common sense...
Face please stop to protect some desicions for that stuff. Its fact that we played for nothing.
The CC was the last tournament which gave me and some other player keep on playing. Now i dont feel happy to play anymore. And yes ... you began and had to finish it. Or do you think that the Football EM will canceled if some Nations(Football Teams) stop playing ? I dont think so.

And yes it was a mistake to cancel it but you cant believe it. But we the community have no chance to tell our opinions about it. Its just a one man desicion or maybe a admin team desicion. Nobody asked us the community. But yeah please decide everything alone if that makes sense in your eyes.

need next CoD o_O
Don't be a fool, how competitive would the CC actually be with 2-3 active teams and 4-5 semi active teams, just would be an easy competition for the active team, as competitive as a monday fun nightcup and CC wasn't supposed to be that in the slightest.

Don't blame the admins for cancelling the CC, they made a good decision, blame IW for not giving a shit about PC community :)

A shame that there are always some people who are not able to respect other opinions and discuss the topic in a civilized way.
