The ESL Pro Tour combines multiple ESL tournaments from various game titles, including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and StarCraft® II into dedicated circuits that build toward grand championships each year. The overarching structure for both global and local competitions provides aspiring players from all levels a consistent and clear goal to reach for, a more compelling story to follow for existing CS:GO, Dota 2, and StarCraft® II fans, and a more transparent structure for new esports fans.
There are no qualifiers planned for events in EPT Season 1. For information on our invite system, please head to our ‘How it works’ page
There will be a live audience for Riyadh Masters, but not for DreamLeague events.
