ESEA Premier Season 24 set to start

The 24th season of ESEA Premier for North America, Europe and Australia is set to start, with all of the participating teams now known.

As the start of the upcoming season nears, ESEA has released the team lists as well as a lengthy post detailing the process of moving up and down the different leagues. With the post, that is available here, ESEA responded to the recent issues that were brought up by the UK team Endpoint and explained the relegation system they use in Premier.

Dosia's Gambit will participate in ESEA Premier S24 

The North American division of ESEA Premier will consist of 24 teams with most of them remaining in the division from the previous season. Selfless, Splyce and Ze Pug Godz are probably the most notable teams, alongside Muffin Lightning and Denial—who have signed the young Estonian Kristjan "fejtZ" Allsaar.

You can find the full list of North American ESEA Premier S24 teams below:

United States Bee's Money Crew United States Ambition Gamers  United States vitrioL United States The Foundation

The European division of ESEA Premier will also feature 24 teams, but the competition will be tougher than in North America as Major attendees such as Gambit, FlipSid3 and GODSENT will be competing for a spot in Pro League alongside a number of dark horse teams such as Space Soldiers, BIG, Rogue and Epsilon.

The full list of teams for ESEA Premier S24 Europe is as follows:

In Australia, ESEA Premier season 24 will feature only 17 teams, with Corvidae, The Trash Pandas and Athletico Academy joining the top flight.

In USA there are no good teams in Premier. In EU you have 3 teams from the major and decent teams that win smaller tournaments and can be competitive with T2 teams(Epsilon, Spirit, Space Soldiers, BIG, Rogue, Penta, DarkPassage).

I thought F3 was in EPL? Gambit, Godsent and F3 will do good. Glad LDLC managed to qualify last season cuz this looks like a hard season!
2017-01-28 16:36
F3 was last so they got dropped
2017-01-28 17:04
What? I thought PENTA was last and played LDLC for a spot in EPL, and lost?
2017-01-28 17:05
ahhh ok so the 2nd lowest team is the one to get the chance vs top of premier, thanks!

No. Top of Premier goes straight up. Second and Third in Premier play against the Second Bottom and Third Bottom of EPL for the spot.
