Information

 

Together with Samsung, MSI, Gamers Apparel, DLC Studios, and Orisono, we are proud to present ESB League Season 4. We are ecstatic to work with these incredible brands to bring you our biggest Battlefield V event to date.

Our focus this season will be creating an incredible 4v4 Rush European PlayStation event and showcase what Battlefield Esports can be with the right game mode and partners. While our focus does lie in Europe for Season 4, we will be supporting other regions and platforms as always.
 
While we are aware not every platform/region combination we are proposing will have enough teams, we want to give everyone an equal opportunity to participate and experience this new format (and hopefully have their very own league).

Qualifiers

There will be 3 qualifiers for each of the North American and European leagues that we will be offering. The qualifiers have a One Day Cup, 5 Round Swiss bracket format. This means that each team will have 5 matches to play regardless of how many they Win/Lose throughout each qualifier.

For our South American leagues, if your team would like to participate, please send a private Discord message to either Prince#8658 or iMPaz#4143. There will be no qualifiers for the South American portion of Season 4.

Each qualifier you participate in will earn you points that count towards acquiring a spot in Season 4, depending on how well your team does in each qualifier. After all three qualifiers are over, the final rankings will be published, and each team will earn their spot in a division of their respective Platform/Region. If enough teams compete in our Qualifiers, we will open extra Divisions where necessary. (Note: Division spots will be assigned based on each team’s final ranking. Ranks 1-8 will earn a spot in Division 1, 9-16 in Division 2, and 17-24 in Division 3.)

Note #1: The qualifiers run through Battlefy, which means you must create your team there and sign-up for each qualifier individually through the links below if you wish to participate.

Each qualifier will award  you the following points based on your team’s final placement:

  • 1st100pts
  • 2nd75pts
  • 3rd50pts
  • 4th35pts
  • 5th-8th20pts
  • 9th-16th10pts
  • 17th-32nd5pts
  • 33rd-64th2pts

 

Qualifier #1 – Sunday 28/02/2021

Qualifier #2 – Sunday 07/03/2021

Qualifier #3 – Sunday 14/03/2021
