**UPDATE** Guild Wars 2 is coming to ESL!
A few weeks ago ArenaNet announced a few new features that may be the beginning of E-sport in GW2! Are you interested in building the competitive Guild Wars 2 community on ESL? Read on!
To kick things off we are going to host a Test cup to check the interest of the community in GW2 cups hosted by the ESL.
So feel free spread the word and sign up for ESL´s very first Guild Wars 2 Cup! We are also searching for streamers and shoutcaster for the cup. Feel free to contact us!
After a lot of feedback we want to announce a slight change of the ruleset, a major change of the mappool, the check-in system and last but not least the official streams for the tournament!
The respawn mode is now "Individual" instead of "Wave".
Maps and mode
The matchmode is still BO3 but all 3 maps are going to be part of the match (Rotation: Forest of Niflhel, Legacy of the Foefire, Battle of Khylo).
We add a check-in system. We open our check-ins at 18:00 CEST until 18:50 CEST. During this period every team has the option to secure their place in the bracket. The brackets of the tournament will be seeded between 18:50 and 19:00 CEST.
Streams / VoD´s
We are happy to announce a full coverage across 5 languages! The well known casters BLU and Grouch will provide the english stream. Worvast and Necca will provide a stream in spanish and erdknuffel will cover the german part! French VoD´s will be available on WaffleWrath´s youtube channel and last but not least a dutch version by NaturezGaming is available on their youtube channel!
Structured PvP - Introduction
Structured PvP is a Player versus Player mode which allows competition on an even footing. Any character used to enter structured PvP retains their profession, however any race specific skills are not accessible. The character is given a fixed maximum level, and all skills and items are available without the need to unlock them first.
In the box below you could find all information about the cup. If you have feedback or additional ideas leave a comment or send us a support ticket!
