Introducing the ESL Series for CoH 2
Today we can announce the start of the ESL Series - our latest league system, based on the A-Series - for Company of Heroes 2! Featuring both 1on1 and 2on2 formats. A big thank you to everyone who has been waiting patiently for the series to start up.
Signups are open!Sign up immediately for our two Company of Heroes 2 ESL Series and secure your first points as early as today. The ESL Series begins with a starting phase which will take until the end of the currently running Summer Season. At the start of Winter Season in early September, the first division update will categorize all participants into the real divisions according to their points. Later on the division update will happen every two weeks. Trusted and/or Premium are not required for the starting phase. It will be tough to reach the top and to stay there, the challengers are waiting!
DetailsAll matches will be played in Best-of-Three mode.
Map and faction choice:
The contestant on the left side of the matchsheet will begin the elimination, then the contestant on the right side follows. Once there are three maps left the contestant on the left side picks a map, then the contestant on the right side does the same. The remaining map is the first map you play. Second map is the one the loser of the first map picked and the third map (if needed) is the last remaining map.
The contestant on the left side will play as Soviets for the first game then Germans in the next game. If the deciding game needs to be played then the player with the best VP score from both games gets faction choice in the deciding game.
1on1 Map pool:
Kholodny Ferma Winter
2on2 Map Pool:
Moscow Outskirts Winter
Oka River Winter

What is ESL Series you ask? Allow us to elaborate...The ESL Series not only merges our old EAS and ladder systems, revolutionizes them! Regular competition in divisions graduated by skill continues to be the key element even though we built the league and its matchmaking completely from scratch. Just like in VERSUS the whole procedure - from searching for opponents to entering the score - is made simpler and fairer!
You do not need Premium or Trusted to get started in the ESL Series!
