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?

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

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.
