Overall this is a great time to be a part of ESOC. We have a stable patch launcher that does a lot more than just change unit stats. We are running more concurrent events than we have ever done before and managing it thanks to our automation efforts. We have more game modes in our sights. Our team is larger than it ever has been and with all the right talent! Team Update:
A new era for the EP Launcher is coming with Riki
is stepping up to own the EP and patch launcher as Buckethead
wants to focus on other parts of ESOC. Riki
has already shown his skills by making a vanilla version of the patch using a very clever approach and of course has made several of the maps in our current rotation. He brings a fresh perspective to the launcher which means great things to come.
Great to see musketeer925
back in the mix. musketeer925
just finished a really awesome tool
for submitting matches which is already getting some thumbs up and 91
has been helping us manage our growing code base for the website.
We have a pipeline full of maps, all of the highest quality. New maps means the meta stays fresh and continues to evolve. Garja
continue to bring us that magic touch on every ESOC Map
Our third ESOC Map maker will be releasing his first map into the map pool with the next update. Keep an eye out for ESOC Jebel Musa, Durokan’s first map to make it into the pool. He also has several other exciting maps which you can find in his map making workshop thread
The media team continues to push for a high standard in streaming and casting events which is making every ESOCTV stream a great experience for the viewer. They also have stepped in to help with administering our tournaments. This is a natural fit as most of the content we produce comes from tournament matches. Thanks Mr_Bramboy
, and MCJim
for making this happen.
We have a full rebroadcast of the summer tournament that includes transitions and narration to keep it coherent. Interjection
has done an amazing job of making the upcoming rebroadcast a smooth story.Betting

is sure to be everyone’s favorite bookie once again! ESOC Welcomes 4 New Team Members:Charlemagen
