Hate it when stuff like this comes out when you've stopped playing.

I'm guessing they base much of their decision on the current team rating and w/l ratio? I know they have a portion to include additional information, but does that really make a difference?

I'm wondering why they are making a new tournament when they haven't paid for the last tournament...

And if ESL were doing nothing, then there wouldn't be a EU PvP scene at all.

So really why don't you just stfu about it. It's not like you're missing any money is it?

As a company in this current climate ESL are probably having finacial problems, but everyone will eventally get their money regardless.

Personally, its far better to have to wait awhile if it means that there will be an EU eSports scene for the forseeable future.

This goes for MLG as well if they ever had finacial problems.

5v5 hasn't been a tournament bracket since Blizzcon 2007.

Rules about what? It's held on ESL's own realm with premade characters, any team can sign up (although obviously it's up to ESL who gets chosen) there are no restrictions on setup, although you can only have 3 players per team.

Pretty much standard rules

I'm pretty sure that only matters for teams previously attended an event run by ESL.

Although I'm not definite, your best probably just sending an email and asking.

At the very least, teams who have played at them do have teams listed on ESL sites: http://www.esl-world...s/team/3754307/

I got into the qualification round in s4 and all we had to do was link armory to our team, make a team on ESL website (you make user and go create a team and invite your 2 teammates on their site) and just write a small application basicly. They dont mind accepting quite a few for the private server, since its there u qualify for the live event.

Quite fun to choose all the gear u want from vendors :D

It was exact same gear as the Blizzard TR.

Whether this is going to be updated gear I don't know.

Probably going to be furious gear, its always 1 tier behind the current season i think. Meaning u can choose t8 pve gear.
