2023 NACT Fall Season Implements Rules to Prevent Travel Complications

The 2023 North America Challenger Tournament (NACT) has taken decisive action by unveiling a comprehensive set of rules aimed at averting travel-related visas and guardian consent complications, especially for minors. The catalyst for these new regulations was an incident during the spring season, where the champion, , was unable to participate in the Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) 2023 due to travel issues. As a result, the runner-up, Team Outplay, took their place as the representative. With a proactive approach, the revised 2023 NACT Fall Season rules not only ensure seamless participation in future events but also proactively equip teams for the prestigious M5 World Championship should they qualify.
