It has been less than a week since i posted my first announcement about Nations Cup for ET. And today I can proudly say that we are good to go. I honestly expected 10 or maybe 12 nations at best case, but you guys have done and gone over the board yet again, having a total of 17 Nations signed up!
We will yet again be able to enjoy some great spectating and exciting games between different nations, so lets publish all the captains for their respective countries. For some nations there were more than one signups and I selected those for which I believe will be able to gather and make the best nations team as well as past experience they have had with other NC's.National team captains are:
Czech republic: Sklamak
United Kingdom: jkzZ
United states of America: ipod
I would like to congratulate to every team captain being selected for their nation. Going forward, each captain will be given access to the private channel at our discord and will have one week to publish their lineups.ET NationsCup 2020 Schedule:

Given the fact we now know how many nations will participate in this tournament, i can now publish as well the format of it.
- There will be 3 groups by 4 nations and one group with 5 nations in it.
- From each group, first two nations will proceed into playoffs while two last nations will proceed into honorary playoffs, so they can have some extra games.
- Group matches will be BO3, with forced maps each round.
- In playoffs, BO3 with each nation able to select one map from maplist.
- Each match week will consist (or try to) of two games for each nation, so the tournament can be done as fast as possible.
