Well, the wait is over! The International Cyber Cup is proud to present iCCup Nation Wars, a clan war league for national teams, where the best players from around the world will be able to represent their countries and showcase their skills in a nation-versus-nation battlefield where many heroes will rise and fall. On July 5th, the nation wars will kick off, and all of your potential question will be answered, including: Will The Republic of Korea completely dominate the league? Will the United States, Russia, China and Poland make it to the play-offs, or be crushed in the ladder stages? Will Hungary come out and dominate this league as they have done in iCCup Clan League this season? All this will be answered — and more, as players put their national pride on the line in this first season of iCCup Nation Wars!
Schedule and Teams
Players are allowed to register to participate in iNW at any given time in the season.
When team leaders are elected and organized their teams, it’s very important that leaders designate a CW coordinator for their team. It is the responsibility of these CW coordinators to send me a schedule with times when their team will most likely be available to participate for CW throughout each week. Specific iNW admins will pair teams with similar times for CW; the wars will be a custom format explained later. Top 8 teams at the end of the season will enter a playoff round, where they will glory, fame and the title of StarCraft: BroodWar International Champion!

Do you want to participate? It’s easy, just follow the procedures below!
1) Follow the exact format to create an account ID: [Creation] Bracketed 2 letters of iCCup flag.
(ie. [US]Tenshi, [CA]Tenshi, [CN]Tenshi, [PL]Tenshi etc.)
Players are to register under the nationality of their official documents (ie. Their passport, license, etc.). Players no longer in a team will have their account locked (we don’t want random people not representing their country roaming the server).
2) Find your team page and join:
Republic of Korea
Republic of Moldova
Note: This list contains the top 40 countries from iCCup ladder last season, if your country is not in this list and want to participate, send a PM to iCCup.Tenshi on iccup.
3) Once you’re done, you need to send me a PM (via iccup.com to iCCup.Tenshi) with your known AKA’s, rank, country. I will keep this information in a formal list. This is important!
All participants must adhere to the following regulations:
In addition to our current ladder/tournament rules, players are forbidden to:
1) Be in more than 1 iNW team
2) Use more than 1 iNW account (No smurfs)
3) Share accounts (Be it 1v1 or 2v2)
The iNW admin team will be doing regular account checks for cases of shared accounts, caught in violation will result in immediate clearstats and account lock. If your account is locked, you’ll have to PM me for account unlock. Depending on your reason and sincerity, I might consider giving you another chance, but don’t bet on it.
Your respective clan accounts are perfectly safe and fine to ladder on, we only require you to limit yourself to ONE iNW- account (also perfectly fine and safe to ladder on).
All team leaders must be aware of the following:
As a leader, it is your responsibility to build a stable and efficient team. Therefore it will also be your responsibility to choose officers each designated with a specific role.
1) Team leader – in charge of settling disputes between officers and/or members
2) CW Coordinator – in charge of arranging CW’s with other CW Coordinators.
3) Advertiser – Spreads teams popularity/interest in hoping to attract more people to participate.
4) 2 Recruiters – Recruits potential players.
Teams are limited to a maximum of 35 players including officers.
Format and Other Rules Regarding CW
Teams are limited to playing only 3 CWs a week against other iNW-teams. CW Scheduling will be handed to iNW admins; team CW coordinators are responsible for submitting a series of optimal times for CW.
4 1v1’s and 1 2v2. All Sets Bo1
Player 1 Player 2
Player 3 Player 4
Player 5+6 Player 7+8

iNW teams are forbidden to challenge non-iNW teams (avoid country/team conflict)
This will be the official forum for iNW related announcements/issues until further notice. Teams are free to use it as they see fit. No BM/flame will be tolerated. If you wish to make an argument or opinion, be civil about it.
Our iCCup streaming team will be casting 1 or 2 ‘highlight wars’ on a weekly basis (most likely on Sunday). Exact time has yet to be decided.
