The ESL Pro Tour is a circuit that connects all ESL and DreamHack tournaments.
It has created an open ecosystem that provides opportunities for players all over the world to compete at the biggest tournaments across the SC2 calendar. Throughout the year, players compete and earn ESL Pro Tour points which determine their position within the ESL Pro Tour Race in order to qualify for the EPT Championship at the end of the yearly season which crowns the official World Champion.

EPT Championship 

The ESL Pro Tour Championship takes place once a year where the best performing players come together in Katowice, Poland to compete for $500,000 and the title of ‘World Champion’.

The top performing 20 players from the ESL Pro Tour Race are invited into the Group Stages (Ro24) while the next best 16 players are to compete within the Play-In Stage which advances 4 players into the Group Stages.

ESL OPEN Cups

The ESL Open Cups are a series of weekly online cups. These tournaments are the grassroots of the ESL Pro Tour operating every week to provide all players an opportunity to compete within the ESL Pro Tour structure. Each week there are 3 of these, played on the Europe, America, and Asian servers.

Each year from the qualification deadline for Katowice, ESL Open Cups will not provide EPT.

The EPT Masters

In the 2022/2023 season there are two competitive seasons split into Valencia and Atlanta. Each season will have open online qualification which leads into regionalized tournaments to then conclude with the main body of the competition. The regionalized tournaments will work identically to the 2020 and 2021 systems, providing the best players with an invitation to the seasonal finals hosted live at either DreamHack Valencia or DreamHack Atlanta.

Apart from those seasons and the GSL, there will be several non-ESL competitions offering EPT Points to the World Champion crowning tournament at IEM Katowice.

Kwalifikacje

Throughout the year, each season will begin with Open Qualifiers which will lead into Closed Qualifiers to fight for spots in the regionalized main event. The first season of the year will have players from 2021-22 invited based on their final result in Katowice and the EPT Standings, and the later seasons will have the top half of each regional event automatically qualify for the next season, while the bottom half are placed into Closed Qualifiers where they will play against players from the open portion.
