New to the Pro Tour?

What's the ESL Pro Tour?

The ESL Pro Tour is a circuit combining  ESL and DreamHack tournaments which will be connected by a ranking system into one narrative that builds towards the Masters Championships each winter; Intel Extreme Masters Katowice. The Masters Championship will include the best players from the ESL Pro Tour and Korean leagues.

With this change we will have a more complete and simpler path from zero to hero for aspiring players, a more compelling story to follow for existing StarCraft II fans and a continued transparent structure for new esports fans. This will be the ultimate expression of our purpose: to create a world where everybody can be somebody.

Does the ESL Pro Tour only cover StarCraft II?

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and WarCraft III also have their ESL Pro Tours.

How does the ESL Pro Tour work?

Please visit the "How it works" section within the menu for a more detailed explanation. 

Are DreamHack and ESL now one company?

While the ESL Pro Tour was created with DreamHack and ESL being two distinct organizations, on October 1, 2020 a merger combined the two into a single company.

About the Changes

What happens with my EPT Points now that everything is regional?
Already gained EPT points will be taken to the players respective division. Example: Serral with 600 global EPT points will take his points to the European division to compete for the allotment to the Masters Championship.
Are EPT points awarded from ESL Open Cups going to also be regionalized?
No, the ESL Open Cups will remain global points. The EPT points earned from these will be transferred to the region of the winning players.
Which division do I play in?
A detailed policy will be outlined in our updated rulebook. However our intention will be prioritized on residency.
How & when do the invitations for the division work?
We will invite based on the EPT Ranking and will invite all players to the division after the conclusion of TSL 5.
How do non Korean players living in Korea work?
These players are welcome to compete in their respective home region alongside competing in GSL.
How will you deal with server ruling in the regular season but more importantly the Season Finals?
All details will be released within our rulebook advance to the first season of competition. Each division will have a home server that all matches must take place on, unless both players in a match prefer and agree on a different server, while the rules for the season finals are still to be determined.
