New eSports format: 7/54
New times are coming with this important change! No more draws possible and a lot more intense action! We are glad to announce the new eSports format 7/54 along with the Assault mode with two cap bases for all ESL 7on7 competitions!
After the Wargaming announcement about the new eSports format, it feels right to do the same on ESL! No more draws, no more camping, a lot of action and intense fights! This is what awaits us with the new eSports format!
What's changed?The 7/54 is a whole different format as it is more dynamic than the previous one. You can now play only using the following tanks tier:
- 5 tier 8 tanks and 2 tier 7 tanks
- 6 tier 8 tanks and 1 tier 6 tank
A important change is also the map mode and the time limit which is now 7 minutes. We were using the Standard mode and now we are using the Assault mode with 2 capture circles!
During a single map, both teams will have to attack twice and to defend twice, after the following pattern:
- Team 1 attacks twice in a row and the other team will defend
- Team 2 attack twice in a row and the other team will defend
If after 4 rounds, the score is tied, there will be a tie breaker.
A Tie Breaker consists of an Assault map that is shown in the match sheet. The Tie Breaker Rules are as follows:
- Team that wins fastest battle in attack picks a role for tie breaker.
- If neither teams wins in attack, the team with bigger cumulative amount of damage dealt in attack picks a role for tie breaker.
When it is going to be used in ESL?Starting now, for every 7on7 competition including Go4WoT, Bronze Series, Silver Series and any other competition that we might host.
We are introducing it in our upcoming Go4WoT #188, which is this Sunday from 14:00 CET, so get your tanks ready and some new tactics because this weekend will be tank-tastic!
Also, do not forget to tune in this Sunday, starting 17:00 CET, to see our live stream on ESL TV WoT Channel where you will be able to see the new eSports format and the new tactics that teams will use! Don't miss it!
Follow us & spread the word
We wish you good luck and have fun playing in the ESL.
