Event Discord Sign-Ups

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

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!

Oh sorry, and to clarify, this is just for the Africa civs. Swe/Inca/USA are still eligible to be played.

I’d have liked for a bigger event too, but unfortunately constraints with AoE4 scheduling made it difficult this year. Maybe for EPL4.

In any case, Nilla Ninjas and NWC shall be returning this year in the ECL. I also can’t wait to unveil the logo for the Boomers, as well as another new team logo for the ECL!

I think 8 teams is enough for the current player pool. Also with the upcoming release of aoe4 there may be players moving their attention to aoe2 to warm up with before aoe4 drops. The prizepool will also be less than the global champs

On second glance, literally copying my idea. Had suggested football style leagues sometime ago.
