The first day of the ESL Premiership’s relegation tournament for the Spring 2019 season concluded last night, and there are four teams still in contention to head to the Summer season of the ESL Premiership.
ESL have announced today a new event for the top teams competing in their European National Championship tournaments. The National Championships are the top level national leagues in each European country, which include the UK and Ireland’s ESL Premiership, who’s Summer Season concluded last weekend with Endpoint lifting the trophy. The first iteration of the ESL Pro European Championship (EPEC) is set to be held between October 13th-14th in Poznan, Poland for the four strongest teams from the National Championships. As part of this, Endpoint and fish123 have been handed invites to the online qualifiers for the tournament.
After the final matchday last Wednesday, the remaining teams finished their eighth matches, concluding the group stage of the Spring ESL Premiership. Six of the ten teams advance to playoffs, where they will contend to join the two top place finishers in the LAN finals, with (a now increased) £13000 prize purse, and a slot in the Mountain Dew league up for grabs.
The UK team flying high at the top of ESEA MDL, Stifmeister, have been signed by Wind and Rain. The organisation, who have been a part of various games and currently compete in the ESL Premiership for League of Legends, announced the signing after the first night of the ESL Premiership, where they had debuted under their colours.
