Doctor leaves, GibbZ joins

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Unfortunately Doctor decided to cut his time with us short as he needed to focus on his studies. Fun times were had and we wish him good luck in the future. To fill out our roster we’ve recruited GibbZ, previously of The Sproggalots. He’s an accomplished player that can fill any role on the team if needed and a welcome addition to our merry band.


In addition, dux will be taking over as Commander, probably for the remainder of the season — maybe even permanently? He’s still a field player at heart, but his commanding is already at a good level and improving every time we play. I expect nothing but good things.

ENSL Season 15: New times, new faces

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

That’s right, Nine Legends are back for another season of ENSL! Season 13 was a bit of a disappointment, but we’re going to do our best to restore the team honor this season. We’ve got a brand new team with a lot of talent on it and I’m confident we’ll make an impact. I won’t mince words on this: Our goal is to win. Any other result will be a disappointment.



The European Natural Selection League



So who’s on the roster this time around? First there’s me of course, Fana, fearless leader and do-it-all. Co-leading with me is Tweadle, formerly of The Sproggalots. On the strictly player side we’ve got marko and enigmatic of saunamen fame, carry marine and lerk respectively. We’ve also got dux, with no introduction needed and lagga, formerly of The Sproggalots, holding down the UK side of things. To top it off we’ve got the dynamic brotherly duo from Sweden, franky and s4, rocking the Fade. Franky used to play for 9L under the alias Kira, while s4 is new to the team, coming from Take Over.


Anyone up to date on European competitive NS knows that this is a pretty hard core roster, actually the first to really rival the original 2005 9L roster in terms of name power. We’ve rightly been called imba and bitched at for hogging all the best players by the other teams. That said, this isn’t some fantasy land where names on a roster win games. There are a lot of good players out there and many tough rounds of NS to be played. Add to that the fact that this team has never played together before and we don’t have a dedicated commander at the moment, and it should be obvious to anyone that this season is going to be a nail biter.


See you on the servers and have fun everyone — NS aint ready for the coffin just yet!

9L NS2 alpha team

Friday, September 25th, 2009

A couple of months ago I started checking if there was any interest in putting together a less-than-serious team to play some NS2 alpha and beta matches with. I was very pleasantly surprised by the resulting feedback, as several past 9L players came out of nowhere to tell me they’d bought NS2 SE.


While I hope more oldtimers pop up at a later time, I definitely have enough players “signed up” to guarantee that we will be playing in the alpha and beta as a team. Hopefully we’ll be able to get some opponents and games going — I’m sure we’re not the only ones gearing up for NS2 like this.
