Announcing the New WGLNA Silver Series

 

Our new global partners ESL will be working together with us this year and helping to oversee our WGL series of leagues. 
With that comes some changes. There will no longer be a separate Bronze and Silver League but instead
ESL has designed and set loose a new tournament setup for the Silver level of competition to all players to participate in.

 

This setup allows for any teams to join in with a more open style whether you were previously in a league or not and participate over the course of a few weeks time.
Teams will play in group stage play (round robin groups) over the course of 3 weeks each month
Top teams at the end of each month cycle will be added to a playoff for that month.

At the end of 2 months the top teams from both months will play in a finals playoff series and the winner will claim a spot in the next season of the Gold League for WGLNA.

This spot in the gold league will be the only prizing at this time for the series. 

 

Below are the Tournament Page, the Rules page and the Registration and Support page links

 

All teams and players that are not in the Gold League for WGLNA may sign up for this series. Even if you were in the Silver or Bronze previously you MUST register again now.

 

You will need to register on the http://play.eslgaming.com/ site to participate and your team captain must register your team and have you join

 

Tournament Page and Registration
 

Rules Page

 

Support Page

 

Ruukil which some of you may know will be your head league operations admin from ESL side.

Him and his team will be  overseeing the progression of this series during this next year.

He will be available for contact or you can use the support page link above with questions

 


I know these are big changes may come as a surprise and as Garth put it way back when "we fear change" 

but lets keep the comments here at least somewhat constructive and keep it classy.

I am Sorry Yoott i know you had like no say in this outcome but this will effectively kill league if this is not changed by next season. Then you will only have gold teams and no progression because it is not worth it anymore.

With this i am guessing there are no league accounts am i correct?

And now league. Its sad i think WG is purposely trying to kill the game by slowly eliminating the player base

I may be alone in this but it seems like there have been very few things that people are liking about this ESL partnership. Lack of info, being high on the list of negative things. Hope this isnt a multi year deal, and that ESL is not brought back for next season

Team Skill Ratio officially withdraws from this.

I know that this level of stupidity can only come from WG HQ. The removal of gold prizes makes the tournament way too "all or nothing" for the first place spot. If second place gets you nothing, why play?

 

I'm not sure whether or not I should be surprised that they have done this...

Thanks WG for allowing my team to get Type 59s before killing off the best part about your game. Also the year of premium and 77k gold was a nice touch as well.

Stinky, unless there's a typo in the rules page:

3.1.1. Accounts

  • Participants will be given individual tournament accounts to play during the season.

 

 

So you at least aren't burning your own Silver & Gold to play in the new Open Silver format...however I gotta wonder how long the Admins are going to be happy creating and tearing down league accounts for the frequent roster changes and multiple pool play rounds.

In defense of ESL, ESL is not the reason why things changed the way they did. ESL is also unhappy with this. In fact, part of the reason why it took very long for them to finalize things and release official info was because both ESL NA and WG NA were fighting against Minsk about the changes. Yoott and ESL NA have tried everything in their power to stop these changes; unfortunately, they couldn't override them.
