Gameplay Rules Event Discord Tournament Schedule

Ladies and gentlemen,
Welcome to the 2nd installment of the ESOC Challengers League!

ESOC's next big event will follow up with second season of the ESOC Challengers League (ECL). The ESOC Challengers League is similar to EPL but a tier below ,it 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 Challengers League is one of the most fun and engaging tournaments ESOC has to offer, so read on if you're interested!

For administrative questions regarding the event, please refer to me in this thread @Challenger_Marco or on discord @Challenger_Marco#8536.

Official administrators alongside me in this event are @EliteRifleman @GKShaman @Jaegerchere @dutchdude117 .

With that said, I'd like to welcome our managers for this season:

Garjonians - @kaister
New World Challengers - @Challenger_Marco
Nilla Ninjas - @TheNameDaniel
Semi-FF Gang - @Squamiger

Sign ups are open for team managers.

Players from EPL S4 are not allowed. Restriction also applies to players at the top end who have not participated. You can sign up in the linked sign-ups thread. Keep in mind that signing up does not guarantee that you will be drafted - hop in the ESOC Challengers League discord and make sure to prove your skills to the team managers to ensure your place in the event!

How do you decide who a player at the top end is, will there be an elo cut off or what are the rules regarding that?

your [plop] zanerres basically
If I were a petal
And plucked, or moth, plucked
From flowers or pollen froth
To wither on a young child’s
Display. Fetch
Me a ribbon, they, all dead
Things scream.

In light of banning the advanced fortifications card for some reason, I propose GA'ing* fixed guns which are 10x worse. Malta can make units, darn good units -- and early -- to defend. And they can fast age. They don't need fixed guns.

Otherwise ECL gameplay is going to turn into this: https://clips.twitch.tv/SpookyTentative ... RTjxqxZBnT
