Quote from GoTTiii on the 29th of October 2016:
A little guideline for secondary teams of certain nations:
1.) You have to make sure that you are enough players so we don't run into the risk in no-show matches, so we will most likely decline apps with less than 7 players.
2.) Prove yourself as a team and play some CGo matches already, we're checking the captain and his matches who he played with recently to see his motiviation for the NC
3.) Make a proper application, which stomps the first nation team into the ground, letting us know "hey, he really wants this"
4.) Do not apply your team via ticket until everything is done, all players must be ready and you should have at least 7 of them
Gotti, as much as I respect you, I think you're kinda missing the point here (for our team atleast)
1. Sure, this is no problem. We'll get 7 players.
2. I dont feel like I or my teammates have to prove ourselves still. We were top LAN contenders and we won the previous nation cup with atleast 4 of our main lineup. You can't expect me to bait my CSGO team to play 'CGo matches' to 'prove myself'. I dont feel the need to do this and certainly are not motivated to do so.
3. What do you mean by proper application? There is no need for me to stomp the first nation team, we'll just let results speak. Maybe we're even worse. Nevertheless, it is good for the competition if we compete.
4. Will do when we have 7 players.
Gotti mate, you do a lot for this community but stop trying to make this some sort of 'fun fair for cod4 players' and instead just let people sign up, make sure they are able and ready to play but dont enforce silly rules like 'prove yourself as a CGo team' because for some players that doesnt just make sense anymore and might even demotivate them more.
That being said, love what you're doing with the Nations Cup and i'm looking forward to playing in it.
