ESB Battlefield 1 – Official 5v5 and 12v12 Rulesets v1.0

General Information

After 4 ESB Councils and discussing/voting on rules with over 30 competitive teams on both X1 and PS4, we are releasing the first versions of our 5v5 and 12v12 Rulesets. These rulesets aren’t final and will continue to be worked on in the future every few months depending on patches that are released and so forth.

There are currently 2 5v5 Rulesets, the 3331 & 1411. We will start testing out both rulesets in the coming weeks through One Day Cups and then vote on them in February in a 5th ESB Council in order to make a final decision with the community. The 3331 ruleset was proposed by us at ESB, while the 1411 was a proposition from the French PS4 community.

Unfortunately until we get more server options for private servers in Battlefield 1 we won’t be able to launch proper events such as leagues and prized cups, however, while teams wait, we hope these rules will prove useful for scrims and the smaller cups we will be hosting until then.
