Check-In System

This cup uses the ESL Check-In system, below is a brief introduction of how this works.




Step 1 - Registration (Green)
Here you can sign-up for the cup, but you will have to confirm your spot later.

Step 2 - Confirmation (Yellow)

30 minutes before the cup starts you will have to confirm your spot. After doing so you are secured a spot in the tournament.

Step 3 - Entering (Red)
Still free spots left? 20 minutes before the cup starts sign up's open again and you can join the cup even if you didn't sign up for it on beforehand.



Gameaccount

You can add Gameaccounts for Shootmania. To do this, go here and register your Maniaplanet login ID.


Screenshots & result confirmation

Although screenshots are not mandatory, we urge teams to upload screenshots of the results after the end of the match. This will lead to faster confirmation of the results and a more smooth flow of the cup.

We would also kindly request that both teams confirm the result of the match as soon as possible, as it also will save time and reduce waiting for other teams.

Support & Help

For any question, doubt, perplexity, feedback and advice, please contact the Admin Team. You can do it with a Support Ticket!


ESL ShootMania Storm Twitter!

We have decided to make an Official ESL ShootMania Storm Twitter because this is the easiest way to contact and challenge other players.

oef to bad you choose the bad official new maps.
You should consider the new custom made maps by the community.
Those are much better!
That's why we are doing a map contest (http://www.esl.eu/eu/shootmania/news/202034/) to have maps made by community and add it to the mappack.

The only good map there is desreveR :$
We rather play the new custom maps made by kryw and phoenix: Swift, Paladin, Luthor, Thalion and Garden. desreveR is the only decent map in this ESL maplist.

Is there any chance of changing the maplist? A mix between good standard maps + some custom maps by community would be awesome.

We test new mappack on cups. So according to your feedbacks and as I can understand, you didn't like those new maps. So we will try a mix next time with old & new maps.

Your feedback is very important to help us to improve for next cups.

About kryw & phoenix maps, I need to receive them on my mail according to the map contest news.
Kryw/Phoenix maps are better than this mappool, but not as good as others.. except paladin from kryw, this map should be added to the mappool together with old maps and maybe another new one.
please take the good old maps + kryws paladin dont want to play these crap maps

Thanks !
Thanks for listening to the community Kalimerre, good decision :)
well done mate, ty :)
Why dont change news and write important stuff like that in comments :S
seriously ?

i didnt take time to read the comments, and when our opponent told us that the mappool was :

" desreveR EyeOfTheStorm FaceToFace GreenValley Helios HighGround Upwards "

we decided to forfait as we dont know any of those except desrever

seriously, i though ESL was a serious website

admins are too lazy to update the most important thing in the cup: THE MAPPOOL

you expected players to read all the comments to see you changed your mind?
