After a successful first Battlefield 1 Season, and a nice summer break, ESB League is back! Season 2 will officially launch on October 16th, and for the first time ever we will be offering PC players a chance to compete in our league as well. Our League HUB (http://league.esport-battlefield.com/) will be updated in the coming weeks in order to get ready for Season 2.
To find out more about the PC Season, please visit:
Sign-ups for the all the Qualifiers will go live on Thursday September 28th 2017. The links to all the tournaments will be posted both in this article, on Twitter and in our official Discord server.
This season will not be offering prizes. With Incursions now in Closed Alpha and the full release hopefully around the corner, our main objective is to build the communities on each platform as much as possible before Incursions will be available to everyone. Once that happens we will be redesigning our league a bit and we will start offering prizes as well. In any case, we hope teams and players will still be happy to see one of our most popular events come back!
There will be 2 Qualifiers for each category. The Qualifiers have a One Day Cup, single elimination format. Teams that don’t have a guaranteed spot from Season 1 (see the “Divisions” tab) and that wish to participate in Season 2 will be required to participate in both Qualifiers available for their category (no exceptions).
Each Qualifier you participate in, will earn you points that count towards acquiring a spot in our league depending on how well your team does in each Qualifier. After both Qualifiers are over, the final ranking will be published and the Top teams will earn their spot in a division of their respective Game mode/Format (i.e. 5v5 or 12v12). If there are enough teams competing in our Qualifiers, we will open extra Divisions where necessary.
- 1st: 100pts
- 2nd: 75pts
- 3rd: 50pts
- 4th: 35pts
- 5th-8th: 20pts
- 9th-16th: 10pts
- 17th-32nd: 5pts
For Season 2 we will be featuring the following leagues on both X1 and PS4:
- Battlefield 1 – 12v12 Conquest – PS4/X1
- Battlefield 1 – 8V8 Frontlines – PS4/X1
- Battlefield 1 – 5v5 Domination – PS4/X1
If enough teams would like other game modes and formats, we may be able to make those happen as well.
Note: The standard day for 12v12s will be scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays for 8v8s/5v5s. This means that players who play in a 5v5 team, won’t be able to play in an 8v8 team either due to scheduling conflicts.
Note that ALL leagues (and respective divisions) feature 1 Match a Week only.
Note: The Qualifiers will run through Battlefy. Sign-ups are now open! Check the “Qualifiers” tab for the links.
