How to play CoD2?
We are aware of the fact that our ladders are not so active as we wish. Many players think, finding a match on ESL is hard. Well, that's not true! Here is a short tutorial, that will show you how simple it is.

What is required for playing CoD2 on ESL?

  • Every player needs to be registered on the ESL (see our getting started guide)
  • Every player needs their CoD2 PB guid registered
  • Every player needs to join their team on ESL
  • Every player needs to download ESL Wire

  • How to find an opponent?

  • IRC: #cod2.esl & #cod2.wars
  • Auto challenger
  • Matchmaker
  • Simple challenge
  • Instant challenger
  • Lobbies on ESL Wire
  • VERSUS* (coming soon)

  • For a simple challenge go to your desired ladder ranking and pick your favourite team and challenge it easily.
    All games on ESL have their own lobby. You can easily join these lobbies by going to the "lobbies" tab in ESL Wire. There you can see how many players are in the lobbies and set your favorites.

    Before match

  • Start ESL Wire.
  • Find tab play and click on the game you are meant to have a match.
  • Find corresponding match and mark box related to anti-cheat.
  • Screenshot option is not compulsory (but it is recomended).
  • Don’t forget to record a demo.

  • Be polite and play fair.
  • Take screenshots of the result and of guids (/pb_plist).

  • After match

  • Upload matchmedia (screenshots of score and guids).
  • Demo upload only on a request of opponent or admin.
  • If u think that your opponent didn’t play fair or their behavior was abusive open a match protest, but first try to communicate with each other.

    Join and play! ;)
    ok cu on xd
    still missing that u can play for more than 1 team, for example let everyone play for 3 teams.
    also do some advertisement on IRC or somewhere and open cups with some good prizes (e.g. let only premium teams apply and then make prizemoney for about 500 € rank 1, 250 € rank 2.)
    should be easy with 10 € premium for each player = per team 50 € = 16 slot cup 800 € = prize money all in all 750 € = 50 € profit for ESL
