FROM ZERO TO HERO 

Players and fans: In partnership with DreamHack we’re simplifying the path to glory.  Starting in 2020, all competitions will be aligned within new tier levels: ESL Open Cups, Qualifiers and Challenger Events that lead to the WC3 Championship each year. Everything will be tied together with the ESL Pro Tour Ranking.

New To the pro tour?

If you already are familiar with the Pro Tour and want to learn more about our plans and ideas for competitive Warcraft III please check out our explanation video linked above.

What's the ESL Pro Tour?

The ESL Pro Tour is a circuit combining  ESL and DreamHack Warcraft III tournaments which will be connected by a ranking system into one narrative that builds towards the WC3 Championship. With this change to our offering we will have a more complete and simpler path from zero to hero for aspiring players, a more compelling story to follow for existing WarCraft III fans and a much more 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 Warcraft III?

Currently, CS:GO and StarCraft II have their ESL Pro Tours as well. 

How does the ESL Pro Tour work?

Please check out our explanation video for more news on the format of the WarCraft III ESL Pro Tour. More news will follow soon. 

Are DreamHack and ESL now one company?

No, though ESL and DreamHack belong to the MTG Group. The ESL Pro Tour is a collaboration between the two organisations. Our tournaments are operated by their own respective teams.
