ESB League – Announcing BFV Season 2

ESB League – Announcing BFV Season 2

Information

The Season 1 playoffs are taking place this weekend, but that doesn’t mean we can’t already announce Season 2!

We are excited to bring you a second Battlefield V season right away, with the hopes of proposing new formats in Season 3 this fall, once the Community Games update arrives in June.

Season 2 (like 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 we are proposing 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 understand better the event format and “Qualifiers” to well, try and qualify!

Games Modes & Regions:

For Season 2 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 America
    • XB1 Europe
    • XB1 North America
  • 8v8 Squad Conquest
    • PC North America & Europe
    • PS4 North America & Europe
    • PS4 South America
    • XB1 North America & Europe

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 teams will earn their spot in a division of their respective Platform/Region. If enough teams compete 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 Season 1 Invites:

As detailed in Section 1.13 of the ESB League rules, the top 5 teams from each Division 1, will be invited back to participate in Season 2, without having to go through qualifiers.

These teams will have until Monday, May 25th, to confirm their Season 2 participation with us and therefore maintaining their spot. After this date, those spots will be freed and opened up to teams playing in the qualifiers.

These invites currently apply to the following platform/region combinations:

  • PC – EU – 5v5
  • PS4 – EU – 5v5
  • XB1 – EU – 5v5
  • PS4- SA – 5v5

Please be aware that if all teams accept their invites for the above Divisions, note 2 written in “PC/PS4/XB1 Ranks”, would become: Ranks 1-3 will earn a spot in Division 1, 4-13 will earn a spot in Division 2, 14-23 will earn a spot in Division 3.

F.A.Q

F.A.Q – Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I need to play all the qualifier events?
    • For Season 2, teams aren’t required to play both qualifiers. We do, however, recommend playing in both if your team wishes to qualify for Division 1.
  • Can we change the roster between qualifiers?
    • Rosters may be changed between each qualifier. However, a certain number of players must remain the same between both qualifiers. A reminder that players may only attempt to qualify with one team in each category (5v5/8v8) as per tournament rules.
      • For 5v5: 5 Players must remain the same between each qualifier
      • For 8v8: 8 Players must remain the same between each qualifier
  • What is the roster size for this event?
    • Roster sizes for qualifiers are listed on Battlefy, while roster sizes for the actual league are as follows:
      • 5v5: 10 Players
      • 8v8: 20 Players
  • When is the registration deadline?
    • The registration for each Qualifier closes 6 hours before each Qualifier starts as detailed in the “Schedule” tab on each event page on Battlefy.
  • Will the league be hosted on Battlefy?

    • There will be a maximum of 3 Divisions per category on each platform/region (5v5/8v8), each made up of 8 teams.
  • My platform/region/game mode combination didn’t reach 8 teams, what’s going to happen?
    • A minimum of 8 teams that finish each qualifier for each platform/region/game mode combination will be required for a division to launch.
      • If a platform/region/game mode doesn’t reach at least 8 teams in the first Qualifier weekend, it will be canceled due to a presumed lack of interest.
  • My team has players that are out-of-region for 5v5s, can they still play?
    • No, all our 5v5 events are heavily region locked. Teams found breaking this rule or trying to circumvent it will be disqualified immediately.
