What is the ESOC Premier League Auction?

The ESOC Premier League (EPL) 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". Each team is also granted one "champion", a player who is theirs for free and basically functions as the team's assistant manager.

At the date of the auction, all 4 managers + admins will enter a discord voice channel where the auction will be held and livestreamed on ESOCTV.

Each Team Manager will start the bidding with 10,000 duck coins.

The admins will first ask a Team Manager to nominate a player. The order by which managers will nominate players will go in a snaking pattern from the top of the voice channel to the bottom, then the bottom to the top. The admins will then tell the details of said player and bidding will commence, starting at 500 duck coins, with the nominating team automatically placing the first bid.

The auction will then be in real time. Managers will simply speak their bids, raising a minimum of 25 duck coins. Bids may only be made on intervals of 25 duck coins. If after 15 seconds there are no new bids, the player is sold to the highest bid in the channel. The admins will provide a 10 and 5 second warning before bidding is closed on a player. The admins will post updated duck coin totals and team rosters and then prompt the next manager in the rotation to nominate a player. Managers are also allowed to skip their player nomination one time during the Auction, if they choose.

Tune into ESOCTV this Sunday at 16:30 GMT to see the opening of the EPL's first season!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first installment of the ESOC Premier League! Before diving into the Grand Tour Playoffs, we'll be taking a bit of a detour this September. ESOC's next big event will be the ESOC Premier League (EPL) - 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". Each team is also granted one "champion", a player who is theirs for free and basically functions as the team's assistant manager. This should be one of the most fun and engaging tournaments ESOC has ever hosted, so read on if you're interested!

The admins for the event this year will be @BrookG, @Mr_Bramboy, and myself, @Cometk.

With that said, I'd like to welcome our managers and their champions:

Mandarin Duck Squad - @Vinyanyérë + @Mitoe
The Nilla Ninjas - @Aizamk + @iamturk
Somali Kabuli Gaming - @princeofkabul + @somppukunkku
Cuirassier Management Co. - @TheNameDaniel + @Kaiserklein
