Your Chance To Join The WGL!

The League Season 5 is already up and running for the Gold Series. Many of you have probably already watched the first clashes of the best teams in Europe. As promised, soon after the Gold Series kick off, we’re starting the Bronze and Silver series!

The Bronze and Silver Series

The League is divided into three levels.

  • The Bronze Series, where all the teams play against each other.
  • The Silver Series, to which the 30 best teams of the Bronze Series can progress dynamically every week.
  • The Gold Series, where the best teams of the Silver Series progress between seasons.

In the Bronze and Silver series, teams compete in a dynamically changing scene, where new teams can join any day. The games are played in the same new eSports format as the Gold Series games.

Every week, the six best teams of the Bronze series are moved to the bottom of the Silver Series, and at the same time, the six lowest scoring teams of the Silver series are moved down to Bronze. These moves promote the hardest working and most ambitious teams, who will continuously deliver the best possible competitive performances.

The Benefits of Fighting in the League:

There are many benefits of joining the WGL. For one, you get to sharpen your skills and experience the competitive gaming scene at its best. On top of that, those of you who manage to get to the top of the Series get to win great prizes, including real money!

When and Where

Starting 8 December 2014, at 20:00 CET, the games of both series will kick off. You can sign up at any time on the recently refurbished Electronic Sports League portal.

Please keep in mind that installing and running the ESL Wire is now obligatory for all League participants, for all levels of the League.

That’s all for now! If you want to know more, don’t hesitate to ask away on the dedicated ESL forums, where the friendly moderators and administrators will answer all your questions.
