Ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the 3rd installment of the ESOC Premier League!
ESOC's next big event will be the third season of the ESOC Premier League (EPL), as well as the introductory season of the ESOC Challengers League (ECL). The ESOC Premier 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". This season will not feature the champion system, and instead all players will need to be picked up at Auction or traded for in order to play for a team. The ESOC Premier League is one of the most fun and engaging tournaments ESOC has to offer, so read on if you're interested!
This season will also see the first iteration of the ESOC Challengers League (ECL). The ESOC Challengers League will be a secondary league open to players not originally drafted to the ESOC Premier League. The ECL will feature 4 teams and be held concurrently to the EPL, have the same format and ruleset as the EPL, and should conclude just after the EPL Playoffs. Team manager sign-ups for the ECL open on September 12th, and Player sign-ups for the ECL open on September 19th after the conclusion of the EPL auction. The ECL is a perfect proving ground for up-and-coming players; however, one must make sure to sign up for the original EPL auction in order to be eligible for the ECL auction later. If you have any questions about either event, feel free to leave them below.
The admins for the event this year will be @I_HaRRiiSoN_I, @Mr_Bramboy, and myself, @Cometk.
With that said, I'd like to welcome our managers for this season:
Mandarin Duck Squad - @Vinyanyérë
Hudson Bay BIGs - @n0el
Blockhouse Boomers - @princeofkabul
Cuirassier Management Co. - @Lecastete
