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

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!

Cool idea. Should also include some 2/2 games in this though, it is a team event after all ?! ;)
With players split over just 4 teams, this will likely make for some some good 2/2s.

You're not going to get 2 top players in a the same team so the team games won't be very even.

There's only 32 slots, so basically all the players are going to be relatively high level. Like everyone is going to likely be pr30+

There are only 4 teams? So to form 4 teams you need just 4x2 = 8 good players...

Fair point. It's too late anyway.
I also disagree with the prize pool distribution (equally split, should be proportional to the auction), but can't change the rules when it's announced.

between 24 and 36 players. minimum players to a team is 6, max is 9. that means between 5 and 8 players need to be drafted, after you take out the champions

a problem is just how hard it is to schedule these games ^^ just the invitational which was supposed to be 3 weeks took 5, if i recall correctly! a tight ship has to be run, for an event like this to work
