ESB League – Announcing BFV Season 3

0 Comments

Information

ESB League is back for its third Battlefield V season!

Our focus this season will be hosting 5v5 Squad Conquest divisions for all platforms across the North American, South American, and European regions. The activity from each region/platform in Season 3 will help us shape our plans for the events we are working on for 2021.

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 3, 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
    • PS4 South America

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 Season 3 depending on how well your team does in each Qualifier. After both Qualifiers are over, the final rankings will be published, and each team 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.)

Qualifier #1 will have 3 matches for each team to play, while Qualifier #2 will have 4. The points you can earn in each qualifier are:

Qualifier #1

  • 1st75pts
  • 2nd55pts
  • 3rd35pts
  • 4th25pts
  • 5th-8th15pts
  • 9th-16th7pts
  • 17th-32nd3pts
  • 33rd-64th1pts

Qualifier #2

  • 4th35pts
  • 5th-8th20pts
  • 9th-16th10pts
  • 17th-32nd5pts
  • 33rd-64th2pts

BFV Season 2 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 3, without having to go through qualifiers.

These teams will have until Saturday, October 24th, to confirm their Season 3 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:

  • PS4 – EU – 5v5
  • XB1 – EU – 5v5
  • PS4 – SA – 5v5
  • PS4 -SA – 8v8

(Note: We will be messaging invited teams individually over the coming days. Please be patient)

F.A.Q

F.A.Q – Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will I need to play all the qualifier events?
    • For Season 3, 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) as per tournament rules.
      • For 5v5: 5 Players must remain the same between each qualifier
  • Can we change the roster between qualifiers and Season 3?
    • At least 5 of the players used throughout the qualifiers must be present on your roster in order to participate in Season 3.
  • 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 2 hours before each Qualifier starts as detailed in the “Schedule” tab on each event page on Battlefy.
  • Will the league be hosted on Battlefy?
  • How many divisions will there be? How many teams per Division?
    • 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, it may 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. All players must be living in the region the event is being held in. Teams found breaking this rule or trying to circumvent it will be disqualified immediately.
  • Is ESB League BFV Season 3 prized?
    • There are no prizes for Season 3.
