Important Information

If a team cannot be present at the official match time, a protest must be opened at least 24 hours in advance!

Barred players are not allowed to play unless they specifically ask for permission from the admin squad by opening a support ticket.

By default, matches must be played on neutral hosts. The neutral host must be a registered ESL user and should live in a country located between the two which are playing (exception: neighboring countries - the match can be played on hosts from each country). It is the task of the teams to find adequate neutral hosts before the match starts.

All participants must behave in an appropriate and respectful manner towards opponents, spectators and ESL administration. Please make an effort to represent the ESL and all its supporters with dignity.

Streaming Guidelines

Twitch.tv is the only accepted streaming option!

By default, match rooms must reserve 2 slots for streaming purposes, as well as 1 slot for ESL admins.

Anyone interested in streaming a certain match should be in contact with one or both of the teams involved.
