ESL Open League starts on April 1st
With the ESL Open League we are proud to present you our new League for beginner and advanced teams, who are looking forward to play in a group within their nationality. The Open League is the new qualifier for the Major League, therefore the best teams from the Open League will advance into the next higher league.
The Idea behind the Open League:With the Open League we would like to offer everyone a place where they can play and have fun without having to deal with strict schedules or being bound to a roster. Every match can be shifted to a new match date and the roster can be changed as often as you would like to. We want to offer you a place where you can play against teams from your own nation, where you don't have to deal with ping issues, like for example Latin American or Brazilian teams had to when they took part in the Go4Heroes Americas Cup series. With the idea to group nations together we would also like to reduce the language barrier and make it even easier for more teams to participate.
|The default playday will be on Saturday since it may be difficult for most teams to play a full Best of Three during the week. Since we don't want to destroy your schedule for other events you may be participating in we’ve decided not to have matches bound to one day. Therefore you can now reschedule all of your matches to the day and time which best fits you and your opponent (check image on the right). You just have to contact your opponent and find a new match day. You will be able to change the date in your match sheet on your own. In case you need any help contact the Adminteam.|
Improving Go4Heroes:Until now the Go4Heroes Cup series was used as qualifier for the Major League. This caused a lot of trouble, we were supposed to ban Major League teams from the Monthly Finals, so they could not qualify twice for the Major League. We don't want to run Go4Heroes this way, we want to make this Cup series available for everyone. Therefore to improve the quality of this product we will no longer use it as qualifier for the Major League, but as an individual product.
Each Sunday Go4Heroes Americas is your chance to find some nice competition, have matches with teams from all over America and also the chance to advance to the next level. Go4Heroes always starts at 17:00 EDT with up to 128 slots and a prize pot of $100 every week. On top of that there is $250 up for grabs for the winner of the Monthly Finals. Further details can be found on the Go4Heroes Americas page.

Sign up open until Sunday, 29th of March, 23:59 CET
Free to cast for all:In the past we were asked by a lot of streamers if they could get permission to stream the Go4Heroes Cup series. Sadly in the past we had to decline their offers over and over again, but with the Open League we would like to give everyone the chance to cast some competitive Heroes. Of course we will give priority to our ESL Network Channels, but because we expect a lot of matches to happen in the League, we dare to say that everyone will be able to cast something. If you are interested in casting a group, please let us know via support ticket so we can note it down.
