ESL Major Series IX

Prize Money Distribution




As always the Prize money for the majority of the ESL Major Series games is sponsored by the Electronic Sports League and some are Sponsored games.

Changes!

As with every season there are some changes as part of our on-going search for the best games to feature in today's eSport climate. We have decided to change Quake Live from 2on2 TDM to Duel, Call of Duty: Black Ops has been rewinded to CoD4 and PES has been officially retired from the EMS. More information for each game's qualifiers will be announced in the upcoming days.

"My game isn't in the list?"

Each season we look at the activity from every game on ESL and beyond. Due to low activity we chose not to opt for any other game at this point in time. If you don't see your favourite game in the list, then do what you can to make it more active on the ESL and it could be included next season.

National rankings and tournament slots

We have completed the necessary calculations to properly award each nation with slots they deserve based on previous results in the EMS. These count for the games that are internationally supported (on the ESL website). If you think that your country isn't getting enough slots, it's you mission to improve that by reaching as far as possible in to the tournament(s). You can view the slots here in PDF format.

More details?

Details on how to qualify for Season IX in all games will be announced during this week.

More to come?

Yes! In the middle of this week we will release a special announcement for Season IX. What could it possibly be? Only time will tell..



Have fun and good luck!
