Nu het normale seizoen van de WC3L ten einde loopt, zijn de deuren geopend voor de inschrijvingen voor het 8ste seizoen. Je hebt de tijd om je in te schrijven tot 21 April. Als je je wilt inschrijven vaan de Qualifiers kun je meer informatie hier vinden. Maar dat is niet he enigste wat de organisatie van de WC3L bekend maakte. Er wordt nl. ook een nieuwe player rule geintroduceerd. Deze regel is zeer uitgebreid en moet meer duidelijkheid verschaffen voor het komende seizoen over wat wel en niet mag. De regel wordt ingevoerd omdat men de stabiliteit van de deelnemende clans wil vergroten en wil voorkomen dat spelers alleen maar een clan joinen om WC3L te kunnen spelen. Met de invoering van deze regel wordt gevreesd dat de meest Koreanen die geen deel uit maken van SK-Gaming of 4Kings zullen vertrekken omdat zij volgens deze nieuwe regel geen deel meer mogen nemen aan de MWL onder een anders clantag. Voorbeelden hiervan zijn Farseer, Moon, Romeo, Lucifer, Gostop en Susiria.
Quote:
Player: a) Each player belongs to one and only one clan within the ESL WC3L series. Furthermore a player is not allowed to represent another clan than his WC3L-clan in any other event which has prizemoney, which can be: 1) On-line or off-line; 2) National or international; 3) Qualifiers or play-offs, b) Clans and their players are responsible to know whether the event provides prize-money or not. c) "Representing a clan" is defined by any of the following: 1) Playing for another clan 2) Using a clan's clantag on the official event homepage (if the website/webmaster use the wrong clantag for your nickname, that should be corrected as soon as possible). 3) Using a clan's clantag in the Battle.net name or LAN name of the player 4) Wearing a clan's uniform or identification when participating in off-line events. d) In case a player has a private sponsorship (as individual and the only person), the player may use the sponsor tag in addition to his WC3L clantag in prize-money events. (so it is not allowed to use only the sponsor tag without the WC3L clantag) e) "Another clan" according to the player definition is defined by: a group of two or more people playing Warcraft 3 - The Frozen Throne under the same clantag within the past 12 months before the start of the next WC3L competition stage (Qualifiers, Regular season, Playoffs). f) Excluded from these rules are: 1) Players participating in official on-line tournaments run by Blizzard Entertainment 2) Players taking part in events in which players clearly represent an "Allstar Team" (such as Korea / Europe etc.) 3) Players playing for their national team in any kind of "Nationscup". g) WC3L teamcaptains are requested to reply to an e-mail whether or not they understand and agree with the rules regarding players and their WC3L Clan. h) False, incomplete or missing statements according to g) will lead to at least 2 Penalty Points for the team and can in extreme cases even lead to disqualification for the remainder of the ongoing WC3L season. i) A player who violates the rule according to a) will automatically lead to a 4-playday exclusion for that player from the current WC3L season. Off-line play-offs are counted as 1 playday. This exclusion begins the day an ESL WC3L Series Headadmin or Supervisor is notified or aware of the violation. j) ESL WC3L Series Headadmin or Supervisor reserve the right to reduce or extend the playday exclusion according to i) in cases not clearly covered by the definitions mentioned above.
