Hello Everyone!

The popular European online gaming platform ESL has chosen INSURGENCY as one of their games; in their own words:

"We are happy to finally get the chance of bringing Insurgency to the ESL, which is the first major league that is supporting this awesome mod. After competing on a small Insurgency community league and gathering a lot of competitive clans, the ESL has realized the potential of Insurgency."

To spice up the first weeks of Insurgency at the ESL there's an Opening Cup scheduled for the 22nd of September, make sure you register your team before 12/09/08 at 20:00 hours to secure a spot in the competition! After the Opening Cup takes place, an INS 5on5 league is expected to take off, so there will be no better chance to decide which are the best Insurgency clans in Europe. Teams need to have at least 5 players registered to take part in the ESL Insurgency Opening Cup.

These are some of the details of the cup:

Max Teams: 16
Structure: Double Elimination
Team size: 5on5
Match mode: 2 maps

ESL Insurgency Opening Cup Schedule:

Round 1: Monday 22 September - 20:00 CET

if im not mistaking but i think it should say "Round 3: Monday 06 October - 20:00 CET" in stead of "Round 3: Monday 06 September - 20:00 CET"

but regards to that, congrats for making it this far, im eager to see what the outcome is.
