Play your way up
Join the Academy, develop your talent and accelerate your career into professional esport. In cooperation with Dotabuff Reach ESL is presenting a brand new ecosystem that enables you to prove your skill, get recognized and start your own Dota 2 career. All that matters is your skill.
The ESL Academy system’s goal is to develop, promote, and elevate undiscovered Dota 2 talent on the verge of going pro. The leaderboard will be derived from the Dotabuff Reach platform, functioning as the grassroot platform in North America and Europe. Gathering talent from both regions, four former Dota 2 veterans will draft teams from the Top 40 players of each region. Each coach will draft their own team from qualifying competitors, selecting the most promising top players to train them on- and offline to compete in a professional esports environment. ESL Academy final matches will be held in conjunction with ESL One tournaments to provide players a chance to display their expertise in front of the largest Dota 2 community live and online.
Register on Dotabuff Reach and play your way up the leaderboards for a chance to be drafted by veteran Dota 2 Pros and play on the world stages of esport. Register on reach.gg and start playing”
