The biggest Counter Strike Global Offensive professional tournament organizers ESL and ECS will be working together on managing their competitive tournaments for the upcoming season. The professional Counter-Strike tournament calendar is packed with those two different leagues managed by the two organizers that run through the entire year.
The ECS and ESL Pro League, in fact, comprise the majority of those professional, online tournaments which gather together the very best teams competing for the prestigious titles. These amazing LAN Counter-Strike events also encompass massive prize pools which are spread among the best performing teams.
ECS Finally Working alongside ESL on Improving their Events’ Scheduling
Recently in their latest tweet, FaceIt has revealed that ECS is working with ELS in order to improve their competitive season and their events’ scheduling for the upcoming season. FaceIt is one of the biggest names in the industry working as an independent production company as well as an independent platform for esports professional tournaments within different games including Counter Strike Global Offensive.
The company has been administrating different esports leagues including those for League of Legends, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike Global Offensive. Back in April 2016, the company has announced the launch of their international Counter Strike Global Offensive professional tournaments known as the ECS or Esports Championship Series. One year later in April of 2017, the company went even further partnering with YouTube which offers live streaming solutions for the league.
ECS is one of those two premier leagues for the professional Counter-Strike scene alongside with ESL Pro League. When it comes to the ESL Pro League, it is another highly prominent Counter Strike Global Offensive league based in Europe and North America. Currently, the league is composed of twenty-six teams, fourteen from Europe and twelve from North America. The league’s inaugural season began in May 2015.
New Season Starting Shortly
Following the ESL Pro League and ECS Season 6 LAN conclusion, Counter-Strike Global Offensive fans are looking forward to seeing the new seasons kicking off. Fortunately, they do not have to wait for long, as the new seasons is just around the corner. The two biggest professional tournament organizers for Counter-Strike Global Offensive partnered in order to better accommodate the teams, their feedback, and the events’ scheduling.
These two companies partnering together is definitely one of the biggest steps forward especially when it comes to ensuring that the event matches do not clash between the leagues. Previously, we have seen teams struggling. Some of them had to forfeit matches in favor of playing in one of the leagues as their matches clashed and they had no other choice, but to choose one league over the other.
In order to avoid this happening in the future, the two event organizers decided to work together on their upcoming event scheduling. Therefore, there will be no conflicting events scheduling which is great news for all Counter-Strike teams and fans who now expect a very smoothly-running 2019 season. The upcoming season should see more teams competing on both fronts as the tournaments will finally not overlap and cause issues for potential participants.
