End of Classic Games *Update*
For some time we've had a great ride with amazing Classic games, but all great things come to an end. ESL has decided to close the Classic Games section, and created dedicated game sections.

Information


War Rock, Warcraft and Combat Arms are moving and getting it's own section! This means that everything will be only related to these games and will no longer be located inside Classic Games. Make sure to check out your game.

All tournaments and ladders will be transfered to the new section, so if you are already signed up, you do not need to do anything! Everything else will continue as usual.

Should you encounter any issues or have any questions, please contact Support and a member of staff will be happy to help!

Visit the new Warcraft section!



Visit the new Combat Arms section!



Visit the new War Rock section!



Visit the new JK:JA section!

What about jedi knight 3? We still want play 1o1, 2o2 and 3o3 ladder...
JK3 is still pretty active. Could you move all ladders to the normal ESL section? Please do not ruin this beautiful, old game.
Why you even didn't inform us before about closing... there are still open cups in jk3 section...

Admin squad was asked are they ready to continue and make cups every week, but no one replied in time, so blame is in fact not on ESL.
So admin squad fucked up the whole JK3 section gj guys!
You didn't even let us finish tdm cup... we could do more cups after that, and why was that necessery to have cup every damn week?
And where is our Jedi Knight section? The most active one game of these games doesn't have own section, you joking right?
What a good work here again.
rip
Im still shocked
killing the 1on1 ladder is a shame. Reasons are at least doubtful, as other games have similar (or even lower) player base... We were told that jka is advancing from classic games to normal games, and suddenly.. gets deleted. I gotta admit, I was nonpresent for last weeks, but I cant agree with that...
On a serious note

If it was just a matter of making weekly cups, then I think the community as a whole should have been warned about it not just the few people in the admin squad, since they are just players in the game the same as we are, and would have given the chance for people to join the admin squad and make the weekly cups if it's so important, considering the fact that this game was the most active in the classic section and already has cups in progress.

ESL doesn't need matches, they need cups. Idfk why but that's a fact.
Damn, here I was getting my hopes for 1st win ever. But that would've happen in 2018 probably.

^Russian admin boasting how he did nothing to prevent this.

Necez doesn't have any excuse, as it's obvious that he deliberately withheld information of the possibe section shutdown, not even his teammates knew about this.

______________

Jar, Temok and Hawle (or someone who represents the Polish community) would be the best choice of replacing the current (useless) admin squad. Hopefully through «support» they could get us a section to inhabit.

Why you deleted Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Ladders?! This game is still live and ESL matches are very important for many players... Please, back this ladders.
A bit sad... but on other hand only russian players were playin some matches, ladder was totally inactive.
It was fun while it lasted, (even if the league favored europeans). Cya later ESL, <3
At least give me some medal unkind admins, got most matches from all players :D
I'm ofcourse knew this admin squad will do no good, the first "bell" was LU precedent, now we have it. But the fact of closing JKA section itself is simply ridiculous. We have played a lot of cups recently, if it's all about it. First 1on1 and now we were in a middle of 3on3 cup, and we could play more cups if needed. So it sounds like a big bullshit to me. You certainly could do more to prevent this happening. I guess Necez didn't do it in purpose and the others just useless.

Admins trying to avoid their guilt when obviously it was cuz of them. "If there were more cups,jk3 would be on in esl".Guess what,im sure everybody active in jk3 would get in all those cups...So if the community is up for cups,wheres the problem? Obviously the problem are admins.They represent us,a fake representation since what esl saw at them was the irresponsability and the lack of interest in jk3...So its pretty sad and frustrating that this section gets closed cuz of inactive admins,in game and in esl.
Leave admins alone :) it had to happen finally :)

Why? JKA section was the most active here, it could be even more active considering new interest has arisen in Star Wars. All we needed is responsible admin or two, to make sure everyone is follow the rules and section doesnt' look like a mess. After that more could be done, but they didn't do even that. Most useless admins ever.
You were not good and active player anyway, so what is the difference for you? If admins were so bad, You could be one of them and show them how to do it.
I fell over while celebrating
Unfortunately there wasn't a good activity within the JK:JA section so we decided to close it. It is cool to see that so many are commenting this news but in the end the Ladder only had 3-4 matches per month for example + the cups did not have a good participation either. We will see how the things will look like in the future and monitor the actual interest to compete on ESL.

Can anyone confirm me that there were only 3-4 matches completed in the ladder last month? I find it kinda unreal, I left the 1o1 ladder a month or so, back then there were at least 1 or 2 match/day, has the ladder's activity dropped that low in just a month?

Now, lets talk about the "cup participation": 20/20 teams registered for the autumn cup, solid number for a 'classic' game like this, yet again I dont have actual numbers but I'm sure it was not the most inactive part of the classic games considering just the 1o1 ladder had 100+ players alone at the time.

Either way, many of us have used to chill on ESL for years, I think we all deserved at least a warning news about the upcoming changes and a little time to finish our last cup, not to delete it randomly in the middle of it.

No respect at all.

I was good and active before you even returned to the game, and so was after. Just rejoined 1on1 ladder and won some tdm matches with my team, was going to play cup playoffs, we were on 1st place in our group. If I were an admin JKA section would prosper, but Tiber & Co doesn't want it.

I agree with Jrrr, such numbers are impossible. Only our team played more than 3-4 matches during the month. It is some kind of mistake. The game was pretty active these couple of years, could be even more active I am sure.
In the last few months we played few cups and the activity was
satisfactory. We were during of 3on3 cup and you just closed it. Why community has to suffer of oversight of our admins? Give us more time because we all felt that warning.

Please just check statistics before you judge.

We had a 26 team TDM cup in progress, definitely more than 3-4 matches played per month, certain players would play 3-4 matches in one day never mind one month

'Combat Arms' has 1 ladder with 5 teams in it and 0 matches played, cups that barely get over 5 teams, it's just that them and the other 2 sections have cups being created every week regardless of how many teams or players join them, which we didn't have but that could have been resolved without closing the section.
i did 100 matches in 3 months ;)
i did 300 matches in 6 months?
Dont kill our classic game...
Give us a chance...
esl died when they closed 1.6 and css anyways.
Hello everyone,

JKJA is out long time ago, only few player playing this game and newcomers who play jkja sometimes.. Yes when 10 player here writing it's look like "huge" but in fact its opozite.

This game is dead and seriously you guys want to play game with 10ppl, or you are happy to be 1 in 1o1 when all good or experienced players leave, shame..

eng > me.
good
Why you stopped supporting CS 1.6 when there are still so many people playing that game tho. Check out awfl.eu

Best Regrads,
roman
Counter Strike 1.6 still alive. Many people playing that game. You should restarts all Ladders .
Back to ladders Counter Strike 1.6 NEVER DIE! It's still so many players who wants to play on ESL.
what a fuck i want to play css -.-
We should be still able to play cs 1.6... Bring it back!
Bring back cs 1.6!
css is still alive alot. i really wonder why u did this its just bullshit. no one plays csgo here anyways cuz theres mm and other better leagues for it. esl died with 1.6/css closed and u know it. the fact theres no ifng etc anymore and almost no matches proofs it.
