Dear Crossfire and Enemy Territory community,
After our recent tournament announcement we are quite glad to see the discussion the announcement triggered. Apart from the original discussion it is nice to see that the community is not dead and even able to deal with such a topic in a quite objective and neutral way.
As it stands right now, the time for a new and innovative start of a tournament for nations has not come yet. Negotiations with Clanbase were not possible or just failed from the beginning.
The result of this is: Two announced Tournaments.
This was not the aim of the collaboration between the Electronic Sports League and the Crossfire team. The reason for this tournament announcement was based on several requests done by the community and not a fast and illplanned idea from scratch. After the complaints about the recent seasons the ESL and Crossfire decided to give it a try and to start that new project during the winter. A project which was meant to be a project by the community for the community and not limited by rules given by somebody which might even not be involved into that tournament.
We do not want to split up the community into two parties. We care about your issues: That is the reason why we - the ESL and Crossfire crew - are ready to postpone the announced Championship until further notice. However this is a stark warning to Clanbase ET, that there will be another player in the house in future and that is the ESL. So it is time Clanbase gets their house in order!
Nevertheless we will not be inactive. Crossfire and the Electronic Sports League hereby partner up for the official seeding tournament for the upcoming Crossfire Intel Challenge 7 in March. Stay tuned for more information and the soon to be opened signups!
