The return of ESB France & more!

The return of ESB France & more!

Information

Before going international and being where we are today, ESB started in France. The French community has always been one of the most passionate and involved group of players in esports, and it’s part of what inspired us to make ESB.

We are therefore proud to announce that ESB France is officially back!

We would like to use this occasion to also introduce ESB Communities. This program will focus on building local and sustainable competitive environments and events for Battlefield V and the future.

Our goal is to make sure that all players and teams are catered for, from the bottom-up. Whether you are a professional team or playing your first scrim, we want to build an environment where you can easily grow within your own local community and respective level.

The ESB Communities program will be gradually launching around the world, with Europe and South America being our initial focus, and other countries/regions to follow in the near future.

ESB South America actually launched this past June as we hosted our South American Incursions Championship on Battlefield 1 PC, with great success and an even greater response from the community.

Each ESB Community will have a dedicated section in our discord server where players will be able to speak their local language and interact with others from the same area. Visit the #get-a-role channel in our discord server to find out how to gain access.

5v5 Domination Competitive Scrim – Battlefield V

5v5 Domination Competitive Scrim – Battlefield V

At the Battlefield V Launch Capture event in Stockholm, we were allowed to organize a 5v5 Domination scrim on Rotterdam with fellow EA GameChangers.

This allowed us to get an early first impression of what a smaller scale competitive match would play and feel like in Battlefield V. We hope this motivates teams and players and gives a different perspective on the game that hasn’t been shown thus far.

You can find the teams below (note that they where created randomly as players joined the server).

On PC, with the help of Team Symthic, we will be hosting both a 5v5 Domination Cup and a 10v10 Conquest Small Cup. While on PlayStation 4, we will be hosting a 5v5 Domination Cup and a 16v16 Conquest Small showmatch featuring some of the best players that competed in ESB events throughout Battlefield 4.

Battlefield 1 Incursions – The Winners!

Battlefield 1 Incursions – The Winners!

Battlefield 1 Incursions has been a wild ride that has finally come to an end, and with Battlefield V just around the corner we would like to celebrate and acknowledge the 3 main winners of our Incursions events before closing this competitive chapter indefinitely. Congratulations once again to all the winners and a big thank you to all the other teams that participated in our Incursions events.

 

ESB & G4G Incursions Championship – PS4 – ApeX E-Sports – 1000€

 

After qualifying as the 2nd seed , by playing in 4/5 of the qualifiers and accumulating 310 points, ApeX headed into the Championship Weekend as one of the favorites to win it all.

They started the championship weekend strong but fell in the winner’s bracket final to FAB Games, and where forced into the losers bracket. They then went on to defeat eXz and reconquered a spot in the Grand Final vs FAB Games, which had absolutely no answer against ApeX which went on to win 2 BO3 matches in a row vs them in order to be crowned Champions, in a comeback that will be remembered for the years to come!

ApeX E-Sports brought home 1000€ with this win!

 

ESB League Season 3 – PS4 – Strangers with Candy – 500€

After going 14-0 in Division 3 with a +138 points differential, and heading into playoffs as the 8th Seed, SwC showed their excellent preparation and consistency by beating their former team in the first round, and then handing out a clean 2-0 (12-3) to the favorites, ApeX, in the Grand Finals.

Despite playing the full Season in Division 3, SwC proved to all the Division 1 & 2 teams that they where in it to win it!

Strangers with Candy brought home 500€ with this win!

 

 

 

 

 

ESB South American Incursions Championship –  PC – TNTG

TNTG finished 3rd in the Qualification stage with 3 wins and 2 losses behind mentira (4-1) and ApeX (5-0). Despite not being favorites, TNTG showed the South American community that standings don’t mean a thing!

They went on to defeating mentira 2-0 in the Semi-Finals, and dominated ApeX in the finals with a clean 2-0 (5-1) win vs the favorites.

Despite there not being any prizes for this event, TNTG proved to everyone what they can do and will be heading into Battlefield V as the South American PC team to beat!

ESB Approved: POLSKA LIGA BATTLEFIELD

ESB Approved: POLSKA LIGA BATTLEFIELD

We are proud to officially welcome POLSKA LIGA BATTLEFIELD into the ESB Approved partner program. With Battlefield V just around the corner, and the Polish competitive community striving and getting ready for the next chapter in competitive Battlefield, we want to help promote their hard work in an effort to do bigger and better events together moving forward.

Want to visit their website and find out more? Visit:
http://ligabattlefield.com.pl/

Here we sit down with tadek202, the founder, in order to get to know him better.

How and when did you get into Battlefield eSports?

I always liked competitive gaming. For me it started in 2013 with Battlefield 4. I joined my first platoon and started to play and organize matches.

What made you start POLSKA LIGA BATTLEFIELD, and what are the biggest challenges you face in your community?

The Polish e-sport Battlefield scene was full of competitive matches, but we were missing a proper league. In 2017 me and a couple of “Battlefield friends” decided that we would like to build a professional league for Polish PS4 gamers. Shortly after that, gamers from Xbox and PC wanted to join as well. Within one year we became a professional organization with leagues and championships for all platforms.

What are your thoughts on Battlefield 1 Incursions?

The Incursions mode is very interesting. It’s perfect for a team play. We are very happy that it will be continued in Battlefield V.

What do you hope to see in Battlefield V, on the eSports side of things?

The most interesting for us are the Incursions and Domination modes. Those are the type of games our players love!

What does this partnership with ESB mean to your organization?

ESB is a prestigious organization. We believe that this partnership will bring a possibility to further develop both parties. It is also a chance for Polish teams to take part in international events.

Where can people follow your organization?

Players abandoning a match before it is over has been a problem we’ve been seeing for a few releases in the Battlefield 1 Incursions Community Environment. We have identified several reasons as to why this happens, and when it happens. The first big spike in disconnects happens at the 1-2 minute mark into the match. The second big spike happens at half-time.

The first spike is largely attributed to players not getting the kit they wanted, and being in a poor team composition with no Vehicle Operator, no Squad Leader, poor Anti-tank capabilities etc. The second spike is caused by the same underlying issues and happens more frequently when the match is one-sided.

We want to do a better job at easing players into the experience, to try to get rid of those spikes. We cannot assume a new player understands what a good team composition looks like, or what a winning strategy is. This is why we have introduced the Practice Match. It is played in one half only, and switching kits is enabled while at the deploy screen. There can still only be one unique kit of each per team, but it should allow players to better adapt to what is needed.

At the end of the Practice Match, the player ranking is unaffected. The player ranking will only ever be updated when playing Ranked – which will continue to have locked kits and plays over two halves.
We hope that this addition will improve the experience across both match experiences, as it helps separate new players and advanced players.

 

IN-GAME PROGRESSION

In previous releases, in-game progression was driven by time alive and how many kills you got. With this release, we are changing the system to better reward teamplay and performing tasks that benefits the team. The Trench Surgeon will get experience for healing and reviving, as an example. The amount of experience gained through an action is shown in the HUD. Please provide feedback on this system and let us know if you find a way to “game” it. We will be tracking it closely.

Speaking of in-game progression, there has been a lot of discussion on the topic, and we heard you loud and clear. We are continuing to look into this system and always welcome your constructive feedback.

 

DESERTER PENALTIES

There’s nothing worse than jumping into a match than to have someone exit and leave your team shorthanded. To curtail quitting mid-match, we will be instituting the following Deserter Penalties:

  • Abandoning a match will prevent you from matchmaking for 5 mins following the end of the match you left.
  • Abandoning 2 will prevent you from matchmaking for 1 hour following the end of the match you left.
  • Abandoning 3 will prevent you from matchmaking for 24 hours following the end of the match you left.
