ESL has launched the new Monthly Challenge! The Monthly Challenge cup series has one cup each week, where you can get points to qualify for the Monthly Finals. Play every Sunday to make your chances for the Monthly finals better and better. Every win matters!
This cup will start Sunday 28th of April at 4pm CEST and will continue throughout the night.
This month we will be running on three cups due to the Easter Break.
Thanks to everyone's feedback Monthly Challenge cups will be using the Swiss system for the qualifiers, which is a mix of both SE and DE but also has its cons. You're eliminated after 2 losses. You will play every round with a similar skill leveled opponent to yours. The team with the most wins at the end of the cup will be crowned winner. This is good for time periods (cup takes ~4.5-6h with 17+ teams) but doesn't have a grandfinal unlike the above two - More details here: https://play.eslgaming.com/swiss-cup-faq
The Monthly Final will be played as a single elimination bracket with the top eight teams from the previous weeks, with the winner of each month taking home the prestigious ESL medal!
Other Regions and staff
I have been working on getting more regions supported by ESL. This however has been a challenge as ESL cannot take any staff from US due to laws over there. If you live elsewhere and are interested in volunteering as an ESL Referee, we are now taking applications! Apply here if you're interested.
For people new to ESL Play, here's a quick guide on how to signup to the cup: https://play.eslgaming.com/guide.
