ESB 2042 Council #2: Finalizing the 4v4 ESB Flashpoint Ruleset

Two months ago, we introduced you all to our new competitive mode: ESB Flashpoint. The reception has been great, and it’s been wonderful seeing teams slowly getting back into playing the game competitively after so long.

Over these past two months, teams have been testing the mode and playing in our test cups. We have received some good feedback throughout this period, testing multiple rulesets variations that showcase different possibilities in gameplay. It is now time to discuss and (finally) vote on what you want to see in the final ruleset used for our upcoming 2042 4v4 ESB Flashpoint events.

Towards the end of the council, we will also ask teams what kind of events they would like to see from us and discuss what we’d like to do. Let’s hope our ideas match.

What is the Council?

The ESB Council is a periodical group voice meeting with active team leaders to discuss and vote on significant changes to our rulesets. We will introduce various essential topics throughout the meeting and ensure they are appropriately and constructively discussed with everyone involved. We want teams to make informed decisions when voting on rules that affect many players worldwide.

Once all the topics have been discussed, all team leaders will be required to fill out a questionnaire to cast their final votes. Team leaders will be required to submit the form before the meeting ends.

Results will be announced on Wednesday, March 29th, 2023, as we collect all the data and update the ruleset accordingly.

When is the Council?

The meeting will occur on Sunday, March 26th, 2023, at 3:00 pm EDT / 9:00 pm CEST and will last approximately 2 hours. Below is a countdown leading to the meeting start.

How do you sign-up?

Teams that participated (played) in at least 1 of the 3 ESB Flashpoint test cups will be considered eligible to participate in the council.

All eligible teams will have 1-2 of their representatives gain access to the ESB Council area of the EsportBF Discord. In this area, leaders can sign-up by reacting to a post in the #council-announcements channel or request that another representative is given access instead through #council-replacements.

(If you haven’t received access because you left the ESB Discord, or if you believe we made a mistake, please let us know through our #general-assistance channel)

Tournament organizers that would like to use ESB rules for their upcoming events may also send a representative to participate in the conversation. Please contact CodeName_Deus#0296 via DM on Discord for more information.

Note: A reminder that this is a voice meeting, and you will need to have a working microphone to attend.
