ESB League – Announcing BFV Season 1

ESB League – Announcing BFV Season 1

Information

Although it was planned for Fall 2019, Battlefield V Season 1 is finally here! After a successful Pre-Season event with 72 teams and an unfortunately long break waiting for community games to arrive, we’re ready to kick things off finally.

Season 1 will be open to all platforms and mainly for teams across Europe, North America, and South America. While we are aware not every platform/region combination will have enough teams, we want to give everyone an equal opportunity to participate and hopefully have their very own league.

Visit the “League Schedule” tab to better understand the event format and “Qualifiers” to well, try and qualify!

Games Modes & Regions:

For Season 1 we will be featuring the following leagues on PS4, PC and XB1
  • 5v5 Squad Conquest
    • PC Europe
    • PC North America
    • PS4 Europe
    • PS4 North America
    • PS4 South American
    • XB1 Europe
    • XB1 North America
  • 8v8 Squad Conquest
    • PC North America & Europe
    • PS4 North America & Europe
    • PS4 South America
    • XB1 North America & Europe
  • 16v16 Conquest
    • PS4 International

Qualifiers:

There will be 2 Qualifiers for each Platform/Region/Game Mode combination that we will be offering. The Qualifiers have a One Day Cup, Swiss bracket format. This means that each team will have a predetermined number of matches to play regardless of how many they Win/Lose throughout each qualifier.

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 rankings will be published, and the Top teams will earn their spot in a division of their respective Platform/Region. If enough teams competing 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.)

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

BFV Pre-Season Bonus Points:

We had previously mentioned that teams playing in our ESB League BFV Pre-Season event would receive a points bonus to qualify for Season 1 (for 8v8 Squad Conquest). Unfortunately, Season 1 was initially scheduled for Fall 2019 and because the event was delayed by over 4 months, we have decided to discard this bonus.

All teams will, therefore, be starting with 0 points heading into the qualifiers. Good luck!
