Currently the ClanBase Chief of Cup and his staff are looking into the situation about the three removed teams. At current I can not say anything of the outcome as we, the gamecrew, have offered our opinions and it is now on their hands.
I hope to keep you updated on any news regarding this and expect a response as soon as the end of the working week.

Removal of Croatia, Netherlands and Finland

After a complaint about the lineup of team Croatia regarding the rule:

Quote by CB RulesPlayers are considered to still be members of any active clan they've been a member of (no matter how briefly) after 29th September 2008 until Monday of the 2nd Match Week of the cup. Activity for clans is defined as participating in any ClanBase competition (Hosted Cups and QuickCups which are not intended for National teams included, Friendlies excluded). Exceptions may apply.
National captains are expected to know the full clan history of any player they wish to field; not knowing it will not be an excuse to break this rule. If any doubt is possible about the membership of a certain player in a certain clan then the captain must always get permission from the supervisor before using that player. There is no limit on how many members of the same clan can be registered with a national team.

CB NC XII Overview

image: ncxiiblackbig2rv0


One month ago the image: cbico ClanBase NationsCup XII began. Following these four weeks of intense matches full of action, we’re now down to the all important battle for the playoffs, the candidates – the likes of Germany Germany and Belgium Belgium. But there's still everything to play for!

The Group Stage offered us many surprises, like Czech Republic Czech Republic having a streak of 4 wins in a row and thereby currently leading Group B. Or Spain Spain, currently 2nd place in Group A having only lost against the tournament favourites Poland Poland.
Regrettably, we’ve also had some disappointing teams this Season in the same way we have surprises. Having yet to win any map, Austria Austria and Hungary Hungary will have to battle hard to avoid the so called 'Wodden Spoon Award'. Being the overall most outsiding team Romania Romania is fulfilling the list.

CB National teams coverage pages introduced

We are one week into the NationsCup XII Season and it's time to introduce a new feature: The national teams coverage pages! These pages will be used by the national teams to provide live updates and extra coverage about what's happening with their team on the different NationsCups.

The national team pages are a pilot project this season and its aim is to provide even better coverage to all of you national team fans. In the pages you will be able to find news and updates about your team in the ClanBase NationsCups as well as fast links to the cups themselves. We are also looking into adding more features in the future.

We are happy to kick off the project with not less than 13 different national teams. Here's a link to the team pages for each team:

The people in charge of the pages are our wonderful National Team Managers. If you want to help out your team and become a National Team writer please address your National Team Manager. You can find the full list of Managers right here.

We wish all the national teams good luck and to all of you an eventful season!
