ESL America Season One Announced

ESL-AMERICA.NET - The extremely popular ESL league has launched the first North American season for Candian and American residents.

The Electronic Sports League, or ESL, has launched the first North American season "due to popular demand.  ESL has decided to trial a free, season-based league for Counter-Strike 1.6 in North America".

Players will have the opportunity to compete in one of two skill Divisions; open and main in an east and west conference. The main division is an ESL invited only division, but teams are able to appeal for a spot in the main division.

ESL also released the rules for the league, including the use of the Aequitas anti cheat system, a five max round per half overtime with $10,000 start money, and the maps, including de_dust2, de_train, de_nuke, de_tuscan and de_inferno.

The prizes are as follows:

1st - 12 Months ESL Premium

2nd - 6 Months ESL Premium

3rd - 3 Months ESL Premium

 

Why you should choose the ESL, as taken from their website:

The ESL prides itself in listening and working with the community within games. You have asked for a traditional league structure like most sports and we listened! We are looking forward to a successful first season and for many more to follow. Community support willing, we hope to raise the stakes as each season passes. Because you the player now have four league destinations, we hope to convince you to support ours. Let's look at what ESL has to offer:

Backed by the world's most prestigious e-sport league
ESL has hosted three events in NA with $150,000 in prizes
Proven, rock solid anti-cheat application
Great, built-in support
Interactive website
