Despite neither Rental Servers or Custom matches being available, we managed to get 30+ teams playing this past weekend in our Squad Conquest test cups on PlayStation 4. It was a great community effort and the events ran smoothly considering the circumstances.
The main test cup was split over two days. It featured no rules on Day 1 and some community suggested restrictions on Day 2. This was designed to test the various aspects of the game, and allow teams to create their own opinion on what does and doesn’t work in a competitive environment. The majority of teams played a total of 4 matches, allowing them to gain the required experience to provide meaningful feedback in this ESB Council.
In this ESB Council we will be officially discussing and voting on any weapon/grenade/gadget bans and any map restrictions that need to be put in place for the 8v8 scene. Once the voting will be over, we will be constructing a first version of our official 8v8 Squad Conquest Ruleset which will be used in our events starting next week.
When is the Council?
The meeting will be held on Sunday, February 3rd at 3pm EST / 9pm CET, and will last approximately 2 hours. Below is a countdown leading to the meeting start.

How does my team attend?
This ESB Council is open to any team who played at least 2 matches in either our PS4 8v8 Squad Conquest Test Cup or South American Invitational which took place this past weekend. Each team will be allowed to send one representative to the Council, meaning 30 teams should be eligible to attend.
Established event organizers are also welcome to attend and join the conversation. Please contact @CodeName_Deus via twitter if you are interested in taking part.
The Council will take place on Discord (Download Link Here). You may join the server directly by clicking HERE.
Teams that wish to attend, please have your representative contact either CodeName_Deus (CodeName_Deus#0296) or Prince (LW__Prince#8658) directly in the ESB Discord to gain the “BFV Testing” role which gives access to the sign-up channel.
Sign-ups close 5 hours prior to the meeting start. (Teams who don’t sign-up will not be allowed to attend)
A reminder that team representatives represent their WHOLE team and not just themselves. We therefore ask representatives to discuss Council topics with their team mates before attending the Council.
As mentioned earlier, due to the official voting that will occur in this ESB Council, only teams who have played at least 2 matches in either our PS4 8v8 Squad Conquest Test Cup or South American Invitational will be allowed to attend.
