All players must sign up if they wish to play in the ESOC Challengers League. It is important to note that the ESOC Challengers League is a 4 week event and that the activity level of a player is important. Do not sign up to play for the league if you do not intend to see the tournament through to the end. This includes maintaining a competitive attitude if your team is already eliminated from playoff contention. You never know whether or not winning your end-of-season matches will make you a more valued player in future iterations of the ECL, so even if your team isn’t necessarily in the playoff picture anymore, there’s always value in playing your best. Failure to complete matches consistently may result in being barred from entrance in future ESOC tournaments.
You can sign up by making a post in this thread with your steam username and URL. Also with ESOC's DE ladder with 1v1 Match History. Sign-ups will close Friday, June 2nd at 23:59 GMT.
If you would like to cancel your sign-up, please send a a private message on discord @Challenger_Marco #8536.
If you are interested in playing, be aware that any team may buy you, and you are expected to play for them. If you were only considering playing for the team with your friends on it, please do the admins a favor and do not sign up. Messaging managers requesting that they not bid on you or refusing to play for a team after you are drafted for them or are both grounds for a tournament ban. For the integrity of the event, and with respect to everyone involved, one must have a competitive attitude no matter who they play for!
You are generally expected to participate in your team's Discord. While we understand that activity levels may vary, this is the core portion of the ECL, and what makes it fun. Your team's Discord server is where your team will hang out, discuss strategies, and have fun without worrying about the game. This is where teams come together (or fall apart), and likely the most integral part of the entire tournament.
