Star Wars: Battlefront
Star Wars: Battlefront is a well known title for us - the first two games of this popular series were part of the ESL for years. So it is not surprising that the newest version of the Battlefront series got demanded a lot within our forums. Therefore we are proud to announce the first tournament which will be an intense Drop Zone competition in a 4on4+ setup. In this news we want to give you a brief overview of the ruleset and the tournament structure. So let's get started!

The Game Mode: Drop Zone

Two teams compete over the capture of drop pods. A map’s maximum length is 15 minutes in length. Achieving victory requires a team to capture 5 pods before the other. It can also be won by capturing more pods than the other team by the end of 15 minutes. Pods are not dropped in a set order except the first pod, which drops at a set location throughout each individual map. If a pod is not captured after a substantial amount of time another is dropped while the original pods progress continues its course. No more than two can be active at the same time.
