There was no official game some time in Q2 Quake2. Why's that? Oh, right, the last NDML season was canceled after only 8 teams signed up... Q2scene spent a year (sobbing and) waiting for the NDML9 to come. And here it is! A few days ago, Belgium Gravgon announced he is looking for active teams to compete in a new season of the league! The number of teams, which was not enough for the league to be run last year (8), was said to be enough this year. But as it turns out, it's not that easy to gather 8 nations to play.

This spawned a discussion what to do so the league starts and, as Gravgon put it, doesn't feel "forced" with half-active teams and imaginary countries. That's when the NDML9: Invitational idea emerges, but that leaves a bunch of questions: who to invite, on what conditions, what would be the league layout, considering the small number of teams. How would you like the league to look like? How do you see it? Post your ideas!
