The first few weeks since the ESL Xbox App release have been a great success. A lot of new users have found their way to the ESL platform to compete in tournaments of various games such as Call of Duty, FIFA and Halo. In only three weeks, almost 90 cups have taken place already including a total of 5,000 signups, thanks to all of you!
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
There is a lot of action coming up for the Halo remake in the upcoming weeks. One of those is the start of the Halo Championship Series Season 1 for which you can find regularly updates on esl.gg/haloesports. Next to that, there will be weekly Community Cups as well as an ongoing 4v4 ladder on play.eslgaming.com/halo. Check “ESL Open” under the banner to get to the ladder. As soon as the app supports the ladder you will also be able to play your matches right here.
FIFA has proven to be one of the strongest games in the app so far, having had a cup with 391 signups as peak. Make sure to invite your friends to the upcoming cups to compete for better placements. We will continue to offer you several Community Cups per week.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
This game shows one of the biggest changes to the franchise since the release of Call of Duty 4. Prove your skills in our weekly 1on1 and 2on2 Community Cups or in one of the ladders as well which you can find under “ESL Open” on play.eslgaming.com/callofduty/xbox. The according rule-set has been updated to the current global standard of competitive rules including all bans and restrictions.
With the release of WWE 2K15 today, we have just yet another game which we will include in the cup schedule regularly. We are also looking to add more games in the future as soon as they release in the likes of Battlefield Hardline, Evolve and many more. If you are missing one of the titles you want to see in the app please let us know under esl.gg/forum.
Thanks for all the support and feedback you have given so far!
