North American Squad (NAS)
North American Squad (NAS) is a collaborative effort by North American based clans to bring forth the best talent, on a weekly basis, for intense, non-toxic competition. While at the same time, providing expert commentary for the involvement of new individuals and potential future community members. The event holds a weekly, prime time match, every Sunday evening at 8:00 PM ET, where multiple clans look to fill both teams to combine strategies and efforts towards defeating the other team. The focus of the event is to increase the skill and teamwork for all involved and also to establish positive gameplay and strong community participation. Sign-ups are posted on Monday morning every week for Clan Reps. Participants are expected to be in the NAS Discord by 7:30 PM ET in the respective team's channels. All of the competition is hosted via participating clan community servers and the event is ran by the passionate NAS staff for the effort of solidifying North America as a strong, growing, and tactical community of Squad. Through community participation, NAS looks to have those that are not yet a part of a clan, or community, to fill in roster slots to be able to understand and participate in the competitive world of NAS by joining a clan for an evening. At 7:40 PM ET (20 min before the match goes live) we will send out a message asking for a roll call of any non clan member players that want to play. If you are interested in playing just sit in the Public Lobby. Once we are ready to load in we will announce the password for the server. We ask that clans only bring 9 members for the start. However if more are needed, we will balance the teams to the best of our ability. If you have any questions regarding the NAS Event, please contact any of the staff.
Order of priority:
1. Clans with 9 Members
2. Clans with Low Numbers
3. Non-Clan Members(edited)
7:20 PM ET - Please start to fill into your assigned team channels.
7:30 PM ET - Roll call will begin to determine if fill-ins are required. Password will be given to the server in team chats. 7:40 PM ET - Non-clan members in #Public Lobby will be asked to fill in remaining spaces.

Respect: Players are expected to show respect towards their teammates, opponents, and the admin staff. If you cannot get along with members of the community, we will ask that you leave.
Integrity: Players are expected to have integrity when playing in NAS Events. No hacking, cheating, or exploiting is tolerated.(edited)
Event Streaming Information
NAS is a friendly, non-tournament style, competitive event where North American clans can enjoy a friendly atmosphere to play Squad. Due to this, and our strong engagement with the community while streaming, there will not be a stream delay for NAS events.
Stream Sniping: Due to no stream delay, it is up to the community to honor and play the game ethically. If you, or your clan, are unable to do this, please do not partake in NAS. -What is stream sniping? Having the Twitch stream open and having the AUDIO and/or VIDEO actively on/open to gain an advantage during an event. Violators of this, will be banned/removed from future NAS events. -What is acceptable? Having the Twitch stream open BUT having the AUDIO and VIDEO muted/closed. Or, alternatively, just not having the Twitch stream open at all. All events are recorded and posted live immediately following the match. -Why don't we just put in a stream delay? Sorry, this will never happen. This event is played with an honor system among the community it's created for. If you have a hard time understanding that, there's no reason for you to need to play in NAS.
