Ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the first installment of the ESOC Challengers League!
Hi friends! With the auction last Sunday, the ESOC Premier League is officially underway, which means it's now time to get along with the introductory season of the ESOC Challengers League. The ESOC Challengers League will be a secondary league to the EPL, meaning it's a ripe proving ground for up-and-coming and newer players looking to test their skills in one of the must fun and engaging events ESOC has to offer. The ESOC Challengers League will follow the same tried-and-true format as the EPL, with 4 team managers drafting a squad of players in a live team draft this coming Sunday, September 26th. Sign-ups are open from now until September 25th and everyone* is welcome to enter!
To reiterate, the ESOC Challengers League is a team-based tournament where 4 Team Managers draft a squad from a pool of players and duke it out over the following 3 weeks round-robin style to make it to the playoffs, where the best 2 teams face off to determine this year's reigning champs. Each team must have a minimum of 6 players, with 5 players on the main roster and at least 1 substitute. Players will be drafted in a Live Auction Event, with Team Managers bidding on players using a limited amount of "duck coins". The signups for the event will close Saturday, September 25th, with the auction taking place the following day.
The admins for the event are @Mr_Bramboy and myself, @Cometk.
With all that said, I'd like to welcome our managers for this season:
Nilla Ninjas - @miggo1999_
Garjonians - @kaister
New World Challengers - @Challenger_Marco
Semi-FF Gang - @JackGaming & @I_HaRRiiSoN_I
Player sign-ups are open now. You can sign up in your MyESOC panel. Keep in mind that signing up does not guarantee that you will be drafted - hop in the ESOC Premier League discord and make sure to prove your skills to the team managers to ensure your place in the event!
*Players already participating in the EPL are not eligible to play in the ECL, and certain restrictions may apply to previous ESOC Major tournament top players who are interested in participating in the ECL.
