  The highlights of the ESL Pro Series Season I Finals

This Saturday the first ESL Pro Series Season I Finals for the United Kingdom took place in London. We were busy on Saturday making sure you guys were updated on every aspect on the event; in this news post we will be giving you some of our highlights of the finals.

The event went into full swing at 9am when the eight Pro Series teams had their team meeting with the tournament admins. The meeting was to go over all of the rules and the protocols for the finals.

The matches were great to watch live, in front of the professional ESL Pro Series stage area. The treat watching the matches live at the Congress Centre is that you can see every aspect of the player’s expressions, they cannot hide anything!

Call of Duty 4:
1st: Team Dignitas (£5,000)
2nd: team-infused (£2,000)
3rd: Reason Gaming (£1,000)
4th: The Imperial.lime (£400)
Counter-Strike: Source:
1st: Four Kings (£5,000)
2nd: FragMasters TOXIC (£2,000)
3rd: Veritas Gaming (£1,000)
4th: noREPLY (£400)

One of the big announcements on Saturday was the introduction of Season II and its games. James '2GD' Harding announce the two new games of the ESL Pro Series II in the United Kingdom. As many hoped Quake 3 will join the ESL Pro Series sponsored by Intel in the next season as well as Trackmania Nations Forever.

ESL Pro Series II games in the United Kingdom:

Counter-Strike: Source (5on5)
Call of Duty 4 (5on5)
Quake 3 (1on1)
Trackmania Nations Forever (1on1)

We have three simple ways to qualify for the Quake 3 and Trackmania Pro Series.

The Amateur Series which will go live soon.
Two special cups we will run.

The top four from each of the above will secure their place within the ESL Pro Series Season II.

  Vote for your Most Valuable Player for this season!

The ESL UK Pro Series Season 1 has been a spectacular opening season for both Call of Duty 4 and Counter-Strike: Source. This would not have been possible without the highly professional United Kingdom teams who have challenged each other for the title over the last 3 months. This has been the first Pro Series season for the UK and we feel that we have seen some truly epic matches and performances from the players.

This is now your chance to vote for the Most Valuable Player this season in Call of Duty 4 and Counter-Strike Source. Our League Partner Cadred have nominated four players in both games to vote for. Make sure you have a think about who really made a difference this season, and submit your vote.

The winning player for CS:S and CoD4 will win a Intel i7 920 CPU at the finals, so make your vote count!

    Your chance to win an Intel i7 920 CPU 14.01.2009 18:17    
  A chance to win an Intel i7 920 CPU!

Intel have kindly provided us with an Intel i7 920 CPU to give away to one lucky person here. Some would say that you need to do something quite rigorous to be eligible to win the CPU, but not here it is very simple and so easy.

All you need to do to win the Intel i7 920 processor is to be the person who can take a photograph or a short youtube video of the ESL Pro Series UK finals poster in the most interesting pose/location/situation you can possibly find. Be it on top of mount everest or held by a famous celebrity, get snapping!
